Cafe Toribox Review - Japanese Hole In The Wall Cafe in San Juan

Saturday, August 4, 2012

I went on a random visit to Piandre yesterday for some waxing after fetching Nikola from school. Half way through my session, their tummies started grumbling so Dennis decided to scout the new restaurant we spotted while parking the car.

We live around the area so we are quite familiar with the place and it was the first time we noticed this establishment. Turns out, it was the first day of their soft opening. I was quite smitten with the place so I decided to take some photos to share with you.

If you are ever in the area and in the mood for Katsu, Coffee or Karra-age, this place is definitely worth a visit.

Although small, the cafe's interiors border towards chic and industrial. You will feel transported to another country while inside.

The food at Toribox is delicious and affordable. For a place in soft opening, I think the service was pretty good.

Nice review! I noticed though that the signage shows Korean characters, not Japanese characters. I guess it's a fusion thing...?
