Tachikawa City’s Landmarks: # 19 Asiatique

Great to explore my city especially where I can recharge, reflect & reconnect with people & past experiences! It’s even better if the place is a fusion of various food culture. I first heard of Asiatique through the announcement of Lifehouse Tachikawa’s new rendezvous early this year. Just tonight that I can enter this “new kid on the block.” They have many “food offers” and all seem delicious and healthy.

As I make it a point to eat turmeric-laden curry at least once a week, I chose to have dinner at Asiatique over Hira Indian Restaurant. It’s tempting to order other Asian dishes but for consistency and “food brain” reasons, I still ordered an Indian dinner set. 🙂

For sure, I’ll go back to Asiatique and taste their Thai & Chinese dishes. I was surprised that they have coconut ice cream and this will be my top order. 🙂

It’s like travelling down memory lane when I entered this enchanting restaurant near the northern side of JR Tachikawa Station. More so when I saw the menu…I was reminded of my first Thai soup & main dish at Bangkok International Airport in 1989. How can I forget the hottest food I’ve ever tasted that it burnt my tongue and spoilt my plane trip & onboard meals to Sri Lanka then Australia. When I moved to Japan, I learned that most smorgasbords are Thai restaurants. Slowly, I loved Thai dishes especially their desserts that I hosted my foreign guests at various Thai restaurants around Metro Tokyo.

With my iPhone’s low battery now and I’m at a public bath near Tachikawa Station, I’ll rush to post this blog. You can check the location and phone number of Asiatique in one of my posted photos.
