New Eagle Cafe
We started out this past weekend by heading to Shirokiya for lunch. But as you can see from the title, we weren’t successful.
We like to watch those crazy old Soko Ga Shiritai reruns, and it seems like during each commercial break there would be an ad for the current fair going on at Shirokiya. The thing that stuck out to me, that I was on a mission to get, was the unagi don.
However, when we finally got to Shirokiya I lost my appetite for it. I’m sure it was delicious but at $20 for the large (which looked more like medium to me), we had to pass.
Instead we headed on over to New Eagle Cafe on Nimitz Highway.
The service here was good. I especially liked how you are asked if you want water on your way to being seated. It’s great on a hot day to have your water right on your table when you sit down.
The amount of variety on the menu was also really good (take a look at the link below). The complete lunch meals come with a choice of soup, salad, or fruit cocktail; rice, mashed potatoes, or french fries; and fruit punch, orangeade, tea, or coffee.
He decided to get soup (minestrone), chicken cutlet with brown rice, and iced tea ($11.45). I had a taste of the minestrone, which I really enjoyed!
The chicken had an interesting taste though. Kind of…tangy. We couldn’t figure out if it was that way on purpose.
I had the fruit cocktail, hamburger steak with brown rice, and fruit punch ($11.45).
I enjoyed everything in my meal. The hamburger, onions, and gravy were all done well. All that was missing was an egg to make it into a loco moco!
And later that afternoon for dessert, some mochi we picked up from Shirokiya (kinako, peanut butter, and taro).
