Tori Chizu: New place for cheese fanatics

Two weeks ago, I was invited to a foodie meet-up in Trinoma and other Zomato buddies. To give you some detail about the restaurant, Tori Chizu specializes in Japanese Doria or baked rice. Tori Chizu came from the Japanese words – tori means “chicken,” and chizu means “cheese .” The place offers a variety of delicious Japanese fusion.

Here’s the food they presented: Chx Katsu Baked Rice, Chx Katsu Baked Rice, Beef Yakiniku Baked Rice, Chx Katsu Curry Chizu Bowl, Beef Chizu Bowl, 6pcs Umami & Spicy Fried Chicken, Spicy Karaage Ramen (Credit to Jogpen)

All served in hot plates and bowls. The mouth-watering Beef Yakiniku Baked Rice is one of my choices. The beef is soft and nicely cut. The serving was generous and full of creamy Bechamel sauce. It’s not salty or sweet. 

I can typically handle my spice, but their Fried Chicken is very spicy. You will feel a burning sensation on your mouth and lips while eating. The chicken is juicy and tender; the crust is crispy. Just a reminder, make sure to have glasses of water beside you. By the way, the original flavor of Fried Chicken is also available just in case you are not into spicy food. 

Spicy Kaarage Ramen is also added to their menu recently. For desserts, indulge yourself with their Milkchiz Cone. I like the silky soft texture of their ice cream. It’s not too sweet, so it’s perfect for all ages. 

Verdict: I tried to taste other food, and I feel the “umay” factor. Japanese Baked Rice is reasonable; however, it’s pretty dry. I thought foods were expensive in the first place, but hey, it’s very affordable! The service is good, and the staff are very polite and accommodating. Location: Trinoma, Quezon City
