First Kitchen, known as City Convenience Restaurant, is fast food chain serving variety of foods including burgers, soup, and pasta. It’s not a place I go often, but D and I had lunch inside food court in a shopping mall. The price for burgers is bit more expensive than McDonald’s and other chains, but we both liked the food.
D ordered teriyaki burger meal, and I ordered kid’s chicken nuggets meal. Teriyaki burger meal came with fries and drink, like other chains, but you could chose the flavour of the fries – called “flavour potato”. It’s like shaker fries of McDonald’s. The flavours are unique: corn potage, flame-grilled mentaiko (marinated roe of pollock), soy BBQ, sizzling butter and soy sauce, butter, consomme, and French fries. D chose soy BBQ. It was good
There is sauce bar at the counter where you can get any sauces as much as you want. The sauces are BBQ sauce, mentaiko mayonnaise, cheese sauce, and garlic mayonnaise.
I love Japanese fast food because their drink menu has more varieties. I always chose tea (usually oolong tea). You can also get hot/iced lemon/milk tea and cocoa with meals with no additional cost.
It may be just because it was weekday and there’re not so many people around, but they made all the food on order including fries and nugget. Crispy and super hot. With kid’s meal I got to chose a toy from a basket, and I got Stitches stationery kit.
We were thinking of getting some sweets there as well, but didn’t. Their tapioca coconut milk float and shiratama cream zenzai (chewy dango with stewed sweet azuki bean and soft serve) looked yummy!
