    Loving the "trash or treasure" concept - keep food out of the dumpsters AND paying them for it! Yum!

    Their "Japanese food" isn't actually Japanese, but some sort of a twist. However all their tea is fantastic!

    This is the original store. It looks like it has a smaller menu, but it's more of a space issue!

    Ginger scones, THE salty oak cookie with chocolate, the salmon and naan sandwich , and the shrimp noodles are great. Breakfast rocks with the waffle and the chicken sausage.

    The salmon bento box is only ok - my fish was a little overcooked and dry.

    I love tea and vegetarian Asian food, so this place is great for people like me. Have the seitan stir fry. If it's Monday, try the okonomiyaki. Beware the teapots designed to spill everywhere.

    They list "fresh" ginger ale on the menu- which I read as made in house. Sorely mistaken when I was handed a bottle of Bruce Cost Gingerale, made in Brooklyn.

    The chai shake is a trap! It's not nearly as tasty as an iced chai latte from Starbucks. There are lots of other unique drinks that are probably a better choice.

    If you've overdone the salmon bento box and are looking for variety, the thai chicken curry with crisp veggies and brown rice will satisfy your tastebuds.

    Preaching to the choir, but you MUST try one of their life-changing salty oat cookies. And their chicken udon soup is perfect when you're under the weather!

    Get the salmon ochazuke. They give you a pot of green tea with it that you pour on top to make a soup. But ditch the wasabi. I like spicy food but it overpowers this dish.

    Everyone comes to get the salty oat cookies ($1.95), but the Bento boxes ($8.75) have a little more substance. Of course they have lots of tea iced or hot. They even use tea to flavor their salmon. Read more
