Dinner @ Keria Japanese Restaurant

July 27, 2017 in Japanese by thywhaleliciousfay

Despite having gone to Cuppage Plaza at least 10 times, I have not finished checking out all the Japanese eateries in Cuppage Plaza. There are just so many! Some of which have very little social presence; One would only know about them if one walked past these shops.

In the case for Keria, I got to know about them through instagram. However, information about them on the net was also very limited. Curious to check out this fairly old izakaya, I got my friend to go with me. Not just once. But twice. Keke. Reservation is a must too!

And from the menu (pages 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12), we ordered:-


1) Otoshi, $3.80 (above) – This would be like a compulsory pre-appetiser that’s chargeable at $3.80.

2) Tai shirako with shuto, $15 (above)

3) Natto tempura, $7.90 (above)

4) Porku kushi yaki, $12 (above)

5) Tonkatsu, $15 (above)

6) Tai arani, $18 (above) – This was seriously very good! My friend and I enjoyed the braised fish head very much.

7) Napolitan spaghetti, $12.50 (above) – We ordered this on our second trip after seeing a group of Japanese businessman ordered it during our first visit. It smelled really good, but it’s ultimately a dish with tomato sauce and sausages.

8) Nabeyaki udon, $14.50 (above)

9) Omu rice set, $25 (above) – A case of reality not matching our expectations. Having seen Keria’s video of their omurice, I was expecting a ball of omelette to be placed on top of my rice where I get to slit the omelette open for it to fall nicely and wrap around the rice. Unfortunately, this came simply as omelette wrapped rice. Sob. Nonetheless, I enjoyed the dish where the rice was coated with tomato sauce.

Would I recommend Keria? I would. It’s a cosy izakaya with a wide range of affordably priced food. And for seating arrangement, one could state one’s preference for table, counter or tatami seats.
