When In Doubt: Kobeyaki

When was the last time you see my post with the ‘When In Doubt’ category? Last month? Three months ago? Last year? LOL.

Yes i know i have been procrastinating wayyy too much. I even made a new category then neglect the old one 😛

Back to WID, so basically this is the first WID section with Boo Bear in 2016. We just finished doing something in Chelsea area (more of this business will be explained sometime later) and my tummy was growling like crazy. Well, it was already lunch time anyway so we decided to look around to find restaurants nearby. We passed this place called Kobeyaki and scanned through their menu. Looked interesting so we decided to give it a try.

Unfortunately, there won’t be any pictures regarding to the restaurants’ interior and decor because it was lunch time and customers were flocking the place like crazy. we were lucky we could get a table even though this establishment is a self service place. I chose chicken teriyaki bowl with miso soup while BB had beef teriyaki.


somebody’s been enjoying his food 😉

I would not say that this is the most authentic traditional way of serving chicken teriyaki but surprisingly their teriyaki bowl was quite delicious! they gave quite generous amount of veggies, edamames, and rice although they could have given more meat though 😛 boo actually enjoyed his meal a lot (I could tell from the way he ate it) but was also saying the same thing about the meat portion issue. The miso soup was very delicious and piping hot, the miso broth was just right. This place also has a station where you can get free sauces like wasabi mayo, sriracha mayo (I might have been wrong on this one), ketchups, et cetera. So rest assured if you are a fan of sauces then you will love this place! As for the price, well, consider it’s still under $10 for a bowl so i would say affordable for everyone especially if you want something quick and different! They also offer sushi rolls and burgers made by order so if you like Japanese food with a twist then you might consider this place to try!
