A sister shop of the nearby City Shop deli-cafeteria, this more noodle-focused branch offers combination platters with your choice of deli salads, noodles and toppings. There are more than a dozen creative deli choices like Dill and Thyme-Grilled Salmon; Steamed Chicken with Black-Bean Ginger Sauce; and Chia-Seed Citrus Coleslaw. Noodle options include kale-wheat, rice noodles and "Zen pasta," with numerous sauces and garnishes to liven things up.
Service is friendly, and the cafe is stylishly decorated, with comfortable communal tables, smaller window-side tables and a handful of outdoor seats occupying a small terrace area. The base price for a platter of one noodle dish plus three deli items is Y1600 (although some of the meatier items carry a Y100 surcharge).
Portion sizes are substantial, so a combo platter ends up being a fairly filling meal, especially if you add on dessert. Platters come with free coffee or tea at lunchtime (11:30-5), and discounts on drinks (wine, beer, cocktails) in the evening. Everything on the menu is ready to take out.
