Kobe Motomachi Doria: Tokyo 2017

In our continuing attempt to try different Japanese dishes, we stopped by Kobe Motomachi Doria in the LaQua Shopping Centre near Tokyo Dome. Japanese seem to love their cheese (and I don’t blame them). It’s a bit interesting because Chinese and Japanese share a lot in common in terms of food yet you really don’t see cheese used in Chinese cooking (perhaps it’s because so many Chinese are lactose intolerant).

I didn’t know this until I did a bit of research but Kobe Motomachi Doria is owned by the same company that runs Saint Marc Cafe (home of the delicious choco cro).


You might be wondering what a “doria” is. It’s a rice-based Japanese/Western dish that’s made with a creamy, cheesy sauce. The Seafood Tomato Doria (1180円) is a filling meal and full with shrimp, squid, and scallops. Each scoop creates a long, stringy, ooey-gooey cheese pull.


The Yaki Omelette Rice topped with Hamburg Steak and Demi-Glace (1180円) is a type of omurice (Japanese fluffy omelette on rice) topped with a thick and meaty patty (similar to Salisbury steak). The heated plate keeps everything warm while you mix the rice with the egg and steak patty. We added the Motomachi set for 480円 and included soup, salad, and dessert.

If you’re a fan of rice and cheese, make sure you try a doria.
