Lunch at Oru

You are looking at this picture and wondering if I am reporting from Mars.

I may as well given how uniquely decorated Oru Cuisine is.

Now what kind of cuisine it is remains a mystery. Reading the menu you get a sense of Japanese with its signature sushi and sashimi platter and bento box lunch.

But suddenly you see baked gorgonzola shells and baked fusili bolognese. 

At night the menu takes a steak-house turn. The daily specials add to the mystery.

The above was one of those mysteries.

A Japanese version of bouillabaisse, it had seared tuna, toast topped with lobster, mussels and fish.

Tasty? Absolutely. 

Worth the $$$? Not so sure.

The baked gorgonzola shells, on the other hand, is a good filling value for $16, albeit it may put high cholesterol types into cardiac arrest with "gorgonzola cheese sauce baked with parmigiano reggiano and more gorgonzola".
