#TBMKGHouseWarming #REVIEW Tokyo Belly MALL KELAPA GADING 5

Hello Readers.
Warm greeting from us.

It was a lucky day to be invited by TOKYO BELLY House Warming Invitation at MALL KELAPA GADING 5 (MKG 5) with the other food bloggers and foodies. So here I am, ready to make a review about what I had in such a beautiful evening.

First, I would like to let you know some news about TOKYO BELLY. Ismaya Group was finally having their third outlet on June 24th 2015, which was located at MALL KELAPA GADING 5. Whoever live near Kelapa Gading should come over, aye? And whoever live far far away from Kelapa Gading should also come here.

Wait, WHY??!
Becauseeee....
For their third outlet, TOKYO BELLY serves MKG's special menu that only can be enjoyed at this MALL KELAPA GADING 5. It's surely something could bring more excitement in eating experience.

The menu that TOKYO BELLY offered us on that day :


APPETIZER

Tokyo Edamame
(IDR 25k)
Rated: 8/10

Rated: 7/10
Tasted: Salty, a little spicy, crunchy, and savory

A good companion before the main course.


ASSORTED OF SUSHI
TOKYO BELLY has so many fusion sushi on their menu. One portion of fusion sushi basically consists of 6 to 8 pieces. But on this occasion, I had a chance to try 4 different tasty fusion sushi on one long plate.

Rock And Roll || Melt In To You || Dazzling Roll || Salmon Nigiri Moriawase
