Kokoro or Yoshinoro Compliment - Affordable And Quality Japanese Fast Food.

Review by 15910 on 2009-11-03
USA -- Trust me, I know that money is tight these days and yes it can be a better idea to eat at home considering the putrid food and service that you can receive when you dine out.
It is tough being a "trust fund kid" so being a savvy consumer with a 5 figure a month allowance, I too have learned to budget.
Anyway, I have been going to the Kokoro restaurants out here forever. Basically, it is a bowl of white rice with seasoned strips of beef like strips of bacon that will melt in your mouth.
For additional spices, they have Pickled Ginger, (love it) Soy Sauce (of course) and a Red Pepper Spice Blend.
"Tis a very filling meal.
Usually I have to take some home and for those in more depressed states such as Ohio and Oklahoma where some of my friends reside, I have highly suggest these places!
Now, I can't recommend a wine to go with this meal but a Coke works for me.
Maybe a nice 1000 dollar bottle of Shiraz for the wine?
These places are pretty much everywhere and as the M3C food critic, you must give these places a try.
For myself and my date, it only cost around 12 bucks plus the tip.

No I haven't. I love Japanese food, but get mine homemade. My mother in law is Japanese.

I'm sold, now I need to find one. You need to give review writing lessons to a few people that carry on over vending machines and frozen TV dinners. (VH)

Peps, surely you can get some rice?
Ramen is noodles (right) but you let me know what I can do for you.

I used to go to a place in Pt. Pleasant New Jersey called
"toshiro's that had the real article when it came to Japanese food... I would KILL to go back there.

Here in Saginaw I go to "Hellos sushi" which isn't a half bad Japanese restaurant for Tonkatsu, (a breaded pork cutlet)which is my FAV.

Five figures a MONTH? Are you counting the 'change' with that figure? *Searching for some old math books to donate to ZZ*

Stew, you allowed that one to slip by you? Fer shame, Fer shame!

ramen is more than just noodles
when you've had it fresh with all the goodies tossed in on top it's just wonderful.

i recommend "Ramen Girl" to anyone who doesn't know what real ramen tastes like ;-)

Don't have one of those around here, but if I'm ever in CO, I'll give it a try ^_^
