Tempura and rice

@ mirandablue
It was a crowded Saturday evening at the Mall of Asia when I met my friend G.  Restaurants and fast-food joints were full.  We walked around a little bit looking for a place that would serve food fast.

G had been to a kiddie party,  while I skipped lunch and drove all the way from Pasig to Filinvest-Alabang then MoA.  

I was almost hallucinating when we finally got a table at Tokyo Cafe.

G and I shared a mango-chicken salad and  I got my hot and creamy corn soup.  I needed rice--and fast! But I couldn't concentrate on the menu and ordered the first thing that came to mind---tempura and rice. Good thing the service was efficient--or H-U-N-G-R-Y was written all over my face. I wolfed down the tempura and rice like there was no tomorrow!

Yummy! Super bigla akong nagutom :) parang naiimagine kita habang naghihintay na mai-serve ang food.

By the way, kakabalik lang namin from vacation. Sinalubong kami ng bagyong Juaning hahaha.

That corn soup really looks creamy, and I'm sure it really delighted your tummy because it was served hot, too! Thanks for your FTF visit!
