Sousaku Bistro Malden

I previously visited Sousaku Bistro Malden shortly after they opened and they were only serving lunch on Saturdays and Sundays. I now found out that they serve lunch every day they are open and also have a lunch menu.

Very cool custom tables. Notice the Japanese Tapas & Bar.

I was the only customer at lunch today.

From the TAIWAN BENTO LUNCH SPECIAL section, I ordered the Fried Pork Belly ($9.50). "Each bento box comes with braised pork rice and side dishes from chef’s selection". I didn't read the description or looked at the pictures, so this was a bit of a surprise since I expected a Bento Box, after all, it's a Japanese Bistro. The waiter explained to me that this is how it's served in Taiwan. It's really a Taiwanese rice plate. The pork belly was crispy and very tender. The standard hardboiled egg was very tasty, albeit a bit overcooked. There was some excellent pickled cabbage hiding in the back. Apart from not getting a Bento Box, this was a tasty lunch.

  1. huh, this looks good. I've overlooked this place in all of my Malden travels, but I think I'll check it out. I like that it comes with the tea egg and pickle, as far as I know that is really the Taiwan style. Thanks!
