Haiku for the Hungry: Ofuku–san

Heard a stomach growl...
May I suggest Japanese?
Go to Country Mall

There's Ofuku-san
A worn and faded facade
Treasures hide within

Many moons ago when Ofuku–san was still new

Treasures in boxes
Red and black bento boxes
Complete meal inside

Craving for porkchop
Have a tonkatsu bento
Perfectly breaded

Php 270
kakiage (vegetable tempura), sweet and spicy anchovies, tonkatsu (breaded pork cutlet),
 tamagoyaki (scrambled egg), macaroni salad, rice

Is fried prawn your thing?
Try ebi furai bento
Served with chicken, too

chicken teriyaki, ebi furai (fried prawn), agedashi tofu, rice

Something bacon-y?
It's perfect for you

Php 270
kakiage (vegetable tempura), sweet and spicy anchovies, buta shogayaki (thinly sliced pork),
 tamagoyaki (scrambled egg), macaroni salad, rice

Complete bento meal
Comes with miso soup and fruits
Surely make you full

But try others too
Like agedashi tofu
or Cali maki

Kind of expensive
But worth it I must declare
Exit with a smile

Gaisano Country Mall, Banilad, Cebu City

What is a haiku? Haiku is a short form of Japanese poetry consisting of just three lines with 5, 7, and 5 syllables. The other two characteristics of a haiku are kigo (word/phrase that symbolizes the season) and kireji (word that cuts the stream of thought)... both of which I don't know how to apply :))
