Last week we I checked out a new spot called Rooms Cafe near me. It's set up to be a comfy cafe style izakaya. The proprietor speaks good English and we had a good chat. They have worked really hard on their English menu, though it does need a few corrections (spell check isn't always your friend!). Mainly: Bucket = Baguette
As an izakaya-like place I ordered some drinks to go along, which would significantly reduce the overall price above. The dishes I ordered were both surprisingly good, with beef braised in miso and red wine being a real winner, while the baked eggplant rounds with sausage and cheese were just darn tasty. The avocado tempura was just so so...I really need to stop ordering it. Turns out I love just plain avocado.

A nice surprise and a spot I'll probably bring my wife back to, I hope they stay in business.
