Om-Rice from Torse Cafe in Yutenji.
Torse is the hidden gem in the middle of a quiet neighborhood, smack dab in the middle of the Bermuda Triangle between Yutenji, Gakugei Daigaku, and Sangenjaya. Yet, during the lunch time at any day of the week, there’s an extensive line of college girls and young couples who’ve dropped everything to risk getting lost in the shallow rolling hills of Mishuku for— their photogenic Om-Rice.
And not only is it a picture perfect anime Om-rice, it’s also delicious. Perfectly salted egg, evenly fried on the outside, tender but not runny on the inside. If you pay an additional dollar for cheese, the inside of the egg is coated with melted cheese that blends beautifully with the creamy egg. The ‘Ketchup Rice’ is fried with minimal oil and light ketchup that doesn’t overpower the egg but aromatic with onion, chicken, pepper and a myriad of spices.
Here’s a pro tip for people who don’t want to line up for hours with winter fast approaching: go at night. During the night time, the rustic and minimally furnished restaurant becomes dimly lit, creating a quiet, moody atmosphere perfect for a date, or even some quality lone time. (The screamy schoolgirls don’t come at night because it’s too dark to take pictures of their food)
See you there!
