t.y. harbor brewery (ティー・ワイ・ハーバー ブルワリー)

Could have sit outside in the "open terrace" overlooking the little "harbour", but was a bit cold that day so we decided to stay inside. Ice peach tea that comes with lunch is refillable.
Chicken mulligatawny(small), 400yen. Very nice soup!
Salad and bread also come with lunch.
バーベキューリブ、T.Y. オリジナルソース、チーズ&ガーリック風味のフレンチフライ添え。
B.B.Q. back ribs(pork) with T.Y. original bourbon B.B.Q. sauce, garlic and cheese fries, 2000yen. So huge!! My friend who used to live in U.S. for many years said this is not even close to "half-size" portion there. I am sure it depends where you go, cos I've never seen a really scary portion during my trip to US. Anyway, the pork is a bit dry. I wanted beef steak but lunch menu has very limited options. The fries and side salad are good though.

David' s NY cheesecake, 500yen. I was so stuffed from the pork but I wanted to try the desserts so two of us shared this. I was expecting hard type of cheese cake(my image of NY cheesecake) but this one is very soft, more like the Japanese souffle cheesecake.

The pork was a bad choice, but my friend's sandwich lunch(1500yen) seemed good. Not bad value for money considering I didn't need dinner that day!

N.B. It is under the same management as here and here. I prefer these two restaurants but they are more expensive.

It is in Shinagawa, which is a stop on Yamanote.

For cheesecake, I actually like it heavy - those hard, baked ones rich in cheese taste. I guess you usually crave what you can't find easily....You should try make it!

Where's this harbor in Tokyo?

For some reason I crave cheesecake so much these days, I've been looking all over for Asian cheesecake (not heavy and creamy like American one, but one that's almost like a more moist spongecake with calpico flavor, usually can find in Japanese/Chinese/Korean market)...but I can't find one~~ XO Now I can't stop thinking about it!

It IS American! ^^;; But it is nice to have a good hamburger or simple steak once in a while.

The look of the ice tea, salad, rib and cheesecake...looks so American!! The other two places that're under same management also looks very American. So yeah, doesn't look that tempting to me ^^;;;
