Our wonderful Tokyo Community Manager Rika-san sent me an invite to check the pre-opening reception party for Kichiri Mollis that shares the same brand new building as COACH.
Sat down to Premium Malts Beer.
Our Grand Opening menu for the evening.
The bagna cauda dip so soooo incredibly rich and tasty...
Some kind of "freshly baked" bread that was very stale with topping... the least appetizing platter of the evening. Don't order this.
Free Drink Menu. A great mix of all sorts of items.
Who doesn't love roast beef! Very tender.
A spicy thin udon dish with pork... hmm... the 2nd least tastiest dish. It just seemed so out of place in this beautiful restaurant. Asian fusion fail here.
Now this dessert was absolutely fantastic! Fondue chocolate cake with melty sweet caramel sauce on the inside wit a side of vanilla ice cream. Honestly I could eat 3 of these all on my own. YUM!!
The Chocolate Cake Video!
Our seat for 7 of the evening. 2 Yelp Staff, 2 newbies and 3 Elites.
This waitress girl was simply fantastic. She prepared both the fresh Guacamole before our eyes and some kind of dry ice tomato thingy... She was so cheerful and smiled thru the entire preparation.
The awesome waitress and Rika-san.
So glad to see a fellow Elite with a DSLR... I don't mind taking the occasional pic with my iPhone but I was Canon S120 and Sony AS10 Action cam all the way tonight.
Prepared from Fresh Avocado's, Jalapeno, Cilantro and some other things right before our eyes.
This Guacamole dip is a MUST!!
A view of the Lunch Menu with all you can drink drinks.
The friendly Manager in Gray/Bow Tie.
This was simply a great reception. The interior was unusually super spacious for Tokyo standards, great round booth style tables, perfect lighting and the staff couldn't have been more attentive. Oh on this night I spotted a few Models I recognized from TV :)
