Our new Power-Lunch spot.
For business people, like myself, Kokoro is a great place to go to get a FAST, GREAT PRICED, HIGH-QUALITY lunch. You'll pay about the same as you do going to McDonald's, only you DON'T HAVE TO WAIT IN LINE, you DON'T FEEL BAD after eating there and YOU'VE TRIED SOMETHING NEW. The great thing about Kokoro is, it's NOT WEIRD or UNUSUAL. Kokoro offers simple dishes such as Chicken Teriyaki, and also very traditional dishes like the noodle bowl Splash. In between are my favorites, Super Beef Curry with Forest Child soup. So good!!
Try it next time you're out. I go there on my lunch break, and my kids love it for dinner.
This place has heart!.
McDonalds does well because its consistant, fast, and a good value. You don't necessarily eat there because of the food, but Kokoro you eat there because of the food and excptional value and very quick service which are a lot of the key traits it takes to be successfull. Maybe thats why so many people have been eating at these restaurants since they were kids, and maybe thats also the reason that they're kids kids will also be eating at Kokoro.
I was raised on this place. :).
I've been eating here since I was 3 or 4 years old - it is a passionate favorite of my whole family (and now my fiance!). The food is fresh, not greasy, and well seasoned. I've never found Japanese fast food of the same quality elsewhere. Most menu items are considerably healthier than a burger and fries, and about the same cost. The service is consistently fast (and I'm talking about over 20 years of dining experiences here!) and courteous. Everything is yummy, but I'd especially recommend the gyoza and the chicken katsu (try the sauces!)
