Lunch at Cafe Kyoto

We stayed in The Plaza Hotel in Balanga, Bataan two weeks ago and the only restaurant in the hotel is Cafe Kyoto. A Spanish inspired building has a Japanese restaurant inside. There is Jollibee at the ground floor and there is Max’s beside the Balanga Cathedral but of course we want something new so we decided to have our lunch here. According to their website, the lunch and dinner is prepared by their Japanese Executive Chef. 

We went to the restaurant at 10:45AM but we were advised that 11AM is the opening time. So while waiting, we browsed the menu to save time. The staff went to our table at 11AM to get our order. We ordered Chicken Teriyaki Bento + Miso Soup P320, Mixed Tempura P320 and Rice P50

They have a big serving of bento meal, chicken teriyaki is just ok for my taste. Mixed Tempura includes shrimp, squid, fish, crab stick, okra, onion, eggplant, okra and bell pepper. I enjoyed my ebi tempura and my husband ate the rest.

The following day, we had breakfast in the same restaurant but we chose Filipino meals. :)

  1. Oh I miss Bataan! I studied there for 2 years in a bible school. I hope I could go back there soon.

  2. That reminds me of Tokyo Tokyo. I kind of miss eating there. I find Japanese fried rice yummy. Do they serve that too?

    1. I can't recall if they have that in their menu. :)

  3. I love tempura! It's been a long time since the last time I had one- this food galore makes me hungry Sis, sarap pumunta sa Cafe Kyoto.

  4. Wow! the food looks really good, I missed Bataan, subrang tagal ko na di naka visit ulit. Kahit ilang beses na ako nakapunta jan pero di ko pa na try kumain sa mga resto sa Balanga.

  5. The food looks good. We will try that cafe when we visit Bataan.
