Takeru is quite unique, part of its menu is a fusion of Japanese and Italian. Their unique selling point is their half potion menu items. It’s actually a good idea if you’re a person trying to save cash or cut down on the calories.

CROQUETTE $3.80

This is a hidden treasure. The ultimate comfort food served in a lightly crispy batter. Once batter is broken down in your mouth, that smooth potato puree-like texture is released – ultra comforting feeling. The mayo/dressing is equally delicious and the perfect accompaniment for the coquettes. I would seriously go come back just for them.

KARAAGE DON 1/2 $7.50

Average chicken found in a food court. Not crispy enough, very little depth of flavour. Nothing more to say unfortunately.

KUMAMOTO TONKOTSU RAMEN $12.40

The broth was on a light side, this dish was average and far from the benchmark set by Gumshara or Ramen Zundo. Personally I hate having the fried element being left in the soup making it so soggy same goes for tempura in soup.

Conclusion

Half portions are the main selling point and the fusion italiano-japanese dishes if you’re into that. There isn’t anything major to rave nor complain about. Despite only trying part of the menu, the experience was not memorable enough to go again.

Would I go again?

No. Just for the Croquettes? Did I miss any good dishes here? leave a comment below.
