The beautiful Ramadan month has just rolled in last week, and we're already seeing plenty of good food around. ? Of course, nothing compares to your favourite home-cooked food for Iftar, but sometimes, you just don't feel like cooking because of your busy schedules and having little time to prepare anything. ?

From 13.90, you definitely won’t leave the restaurant without feeling hungry with its all-day long menu like the Cheese Katsu Curry Udon, or the Yakitori. If you want to keep away from rice, there’s always another choice. Go for the Cheesy Dry Ramen set or the Tenzaru Cha Soba. Lower calories, but equally good! ?
