BUKKAKE ONTAMA WITH SIDES AND GREEN TEA


BY MURIEL OF STUDIO MIMU

“Mappen is bliss; the perfect place to go when you want to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. We find ourselves here almost every week, going through the ritual of inspecting the menu (only to order the same dishes every time), perusing the extra toppings (always ordering than we can possibly eat) and trying to get the largest spoonfuls of tempura bits we can (limited to one scoop per customer). The modest prices are an attractive selling point to newcomers and a blessing to their regulars.

Mappen embodies the generosity, attention to detail and welcoming ambience we miss about Japan. Coming here doesn’t replace our trips through the quaint diners of Tokyo, but what Mappen does better than most places in the CBD is quality control. With the world in such an unpredictable state, there is calm and joy to be found in a bowl of udon noodles, shallow-bathed with a few soft-boiled eggs.”
