Shokudo Japanese Coffee House

Shokudo is strategically located to attract the hungry movie-goers after a movie at Cineleisure. Especially those who finished their popcorn before the movie started.

The menu has so much variety.. pastas, pizzas, western grills, burgers, omy rice, udon, sushi, donburi, curry rice, chicken chop, pork chop..  Hanging out with a bunch of friends who have different cravings? This is the place that everyone will land on amicably. But we took forever to decide what to order.

Teriyaki cheese curry baked rice ($13.80++, below) - My three favourite things in the same line - teriyaki, cheese, curry. How can I not order?? 

The chicken with teriyaki sauce was a tad dry and hard. But it was revived by the cheese that infused the rice and covered with curry sauce. Curry sauce was the Japanese version which was non spicy but sweet. The accompany miso soup was salty. I kept drinking water, which was not free.. $0.50 per cup. 3.75/5

The grilled chicken curry omu rice ($15.80++, below) came with a scrambled egg on top of the rice, which you are supposed to drizzle with the curry that came in a separate bowl. It was oiishi.. The chicken was well grilled and tasty. 3.75/5

When I see a matcha cheesecake ($6.80++, below), I have to order it. Matcha is my greatest love and so is cheese. They are my definition of happiest marriage. The matcha cheesecake mousse was ethereally light with matcha and cheese flavors infused. Not overly intense or rich.. Just nice as a dessert after a sumptuous meal. 4/5

Service was a bit inconsistent but nothing unacceptable. This is a great cosy place for people-watching especially if you sit by the windows.
