It was such a nice day to head to the beaches today.
We stopped by Coco Ichibanya to grab some lunch. They serve Japanese style curry.
I ordered the pork cutlet for $8.99 and a garlic nan for $1.50 as appetizer. The pork cutlet was moist and tender. The cutlets does get a bit dry if you eat it plain without the curry sauce. To me, the curry sauce tasted like something you can buy from a curry box, nothing out of the ordinary. The plate comes with enough rice to full you up and extras. I couldn't finish the rice at all but I managed to eat all of the cutlets and most of the curry sauce.
If you want a hearty lunch or something like a comfort meal, this is the dish.

|Hi there, stranger|
We headed toward the beach for a bit of quiet reading and napping. I doze off after that and it was the best nap ever.

Their food is served similar to a salad bar. Portion size and the number of items you want per container determines the cost.
I had the 4 portion for $9.50. I got the Israeli couscous that comes with wild mushroom, lemon truffle, and parmesan. My next choice was the red quinoa with argula, fuji apple, sunflower and pistachio seeds. My last two choices was the kale, mushroom, kumquat and the arugla with asian pear topped with blue cheese drizzled in sherry vinaigrette.
If I had to describe this meal, it was light, flavorful, and healthy. This is perfect for those that are on a diet or aiming for lower calories.
I came here for on the crave for some ice cream macaron. These are already pre-made freezed in their refrigerator. They had an array of flavors: thai tea, coffee toffee, red velvet, salted caramel, vanilla, blueberry, cookies and cream, banana dulce de leche, pistachio, and grasshopper (mint/chocolate). If I could, I would buy a dozen of these.

The day ended with all-you-can-eat Korean BBQ for dinner. If you were wondering, yes, we did eat dessert before we ate dinner or should I say a late midnight snack.
It took longer than expected to eat dinner since most restaurants were closing up. We ended up at Road to Seoul which closes at midnight. I believe the buffet styled selection was around $20 a person. The items that you want to have are selected from their menu. The waiter was attentive and helped cook our meat while we munch on.
