Cafe Hiro in Cypress

Just went there for the first time with a friend for lunch. We got there about 1:30ish and there were still a few tables finishing up their lunch. I think the music they were playing in there was reggae. Wait staff were all Japanese 20-somethings. I'm not sure which person was Hiro, but I'm guessing he's the young looking Japanese guy with the goatee working in the kitchen.

Well I ordered the "Kobe" beef curry ($9) and my friend had the pork cutlet curry ($10). We both got it with rice (versus pasta) and "hot" in terms of spicyness. It was spicy but not too spicy that it burned your tounge. The beef was so tender that you didn't need a knife to cut it, just press down with your fork. The fried pork cutlet stayed crispy in the curry. My friend liked the beef more and I liked the pork, so we swapped midway through the meal. The entrees came with a small salad with Japanese dressing, which had a little kick to it (maybe horseradish). Lunch also came with a bowl of grean pea soup. It was light and creamy and topped with thin wonton-like strips. We finished off our meals with walnut creme brulee ($5) and pat de chocolat ($4) which were very good.
