Check it out!
Yesterday, my officemates and I decided to have a lunch out. Normally, we would pack lunch or buy lunch from Manang (the lady who brings lunch to the office every day).
One of the reasons for the lunch out was that we wanted to try out the new Tokyo Tokyo Metro nearby. So off we went.
Unfortunately, the place was full and we had to wait to be seated. Seeing the seated customers still waiting for their food, we thought it would be a long time after we would have our turn. So, we went out and headed for the next best thing next door, World Topps. 😀
Just a few initial impressions about Tokyo Tokyo Metro.
The place is cool, but the space was not maximized well. They could have seat more people had they had smaller tables that can be joined together for bigger groups. We saw about three couples sitting on a table good for five or six. I think this is a new business line of Tokyo Tokyo, and it is more of the fine dining kind.
It seems like more and more fast food restos are venturing into a bistro or fine dining.
Shorter route: From Ayala Avenue, head to H.B. De la Costa, that is at the corner of RCBC Tower and Ayala Avenue. Turn right to De la Costa, and at the first corner, turn right again to Valero Street. Go straight, crossing Rufino (formerly Herrera) Street. A block away from that corner of Rufino and Valero Streets is Tokyo Tokyo Metro (TTM). It’s on the side of Starbucks (at the corner), Claudette’s, Seattle’s Best Coffee, Shakey’s, ChinaBank, then TTM.
Alternate route: From Ayala, take Paseo de Roxas, turn left at the corner of Citibank Tower, go straight (crossing Valero St and Agustin St) to Adamson Building on Leviste Street. Turn left, go straight to Rufino Street, turn left and then left to Valero Street. A block away from that corner of Rufino and Valero Streets is Tokyo Tokyo Metro (TTM). It’s on the side of Starbucks (at the corner), Claudette’s, Seattle’s Best Coffee, Shakey’s, ChinaBank, then TTM.
