Casual Japanese dining at Takeru

After a day of shopping without much reward (only bought a pair of shoes for TLG), I didn't feel like cooking. So I suggested a quick dinner at Chatswood.

Takeru is right in the middle of the Chatswood shopping district, yet unless you are told you'll never know about it. It is at the back of an old shopping centre called Victoria Plaza which is next to Chatswood Chase.

Takeru is the first eatery I've been to in Australia with a touch screen ordering system, which is commonplace in Japan.  You see a display of all the dishes.


Click on a dish you want, press "order now" and it'll be on its way!


Mr Curious doesn't need to look at the menu - he has the same dish every time we come here.  It's the Tonkatsu Doria (deep fried pork loin cutlet on baked tomato rice, with white sauce, mayo and tasty cheese).  Not the best for your arteries but it tastes good!


I am a fan of Unagi (freshwater eels) and so I ordered the eel fried rice (Unagi cha-han).


It was OK only, the rice was a bit too salty.

One of the best things at Takeru is that you can order half serve.  So you can try out different dishes, or in our case, a smaller serve for TLG.  He had a Salmon Cream Spaghetti.


I am tempted to post a photo of TLG slurping the "nute" (noodles).  He is very hands-on with his eating - he likes to take the food off the pork and feed himself!  It is definitely a messy affair.

Takeru may not be the fanciest joints but it is great for a quick meal.  Check it out when you're in Chatswood next time!
