Slurp Cafe, 3 Two Square PJ

Being avid fans of Japanese food & animes/mangas, Guan Ren & I couldn't resist this deal on Groupon - a RM30 voucher for only RM18 at Slurp Cafe, a Japanese fusion food cafe at 3 Two Square
Slurp Cafe is located just next to Starbucks at 3 Two Square (where the famous Nadeje Mille Crepe resides). With a cute little yellow mascot with a bloated tummy (I think the yellow mascot ate the "U" on the signboard...), Slurp Cafe exudes a warm , welcoming vibe even from outside... 
Step in to Slurp Cafe, and you'll be welcomed warmly by a team of Iron Man. I kid you not, the waiters are wearing a cool-looking Iron Man T-Shirt with Slurp's iconic logo on the back of their shirt! I wouldn't mind working part time at Slurp just for the T-Shirt :P
Feast your eyes with the fantastic mural of Slurp Cafe, featuring Goku from Dragon Ball VS Superman  & Spidy VS Hulk! I wonder who will win :P
Another side of the wall plastered with classic metal vintage posters that were entertaining & amusing as well. Warning: Good laughs ahead. 
The owner of Slurp Cafe is no doubt a Marvel, DC Comic, anime & cartoon fan. We really love the decor of Slurp Cafe! We didn't mind the fact that our food was delivered slightly slower than usual, as we could kill time admiring the beautiful displays of super hero figurines, anime figurines (Shingeki no Kyoujin fans would be delighted!), Gundam Models, Bat Car, a life size Iron Man head & so much more!
And look! Slurp Cafe has one of the cutest drink menu, with anime character & superheroes donning most pages in the menu.

You can browse through the full food menu HERE. Slurp Cafe serves a wide range of Japanese food from Don (Rice bowl with assorted meat), to Ramen, to an exciting range of western delight like burgers and fish & chips, and a myriad of fusion food like Ramen Burger & Maggie Murtabak! We had a hard time deciding what to eat and we finally settled for these two: Omurice & Ramen Burger.
Lady Bechamel (S) RM14.90 (L) RM17.90
Traditional white & creamy nutty taste gravy, served with rice topped with a beautiful, golden yellow omelette. A dish highly recommended by Slurp Cafe (There's even a fake omerice display on the counter which looks disturbingly real, and a flip book cartoon on each table for one to learn how to eat an omurice)
After slicing the omelette. Look how perfectly runny the omelette is inside! (Forgive me for the not-so-photogenic photo). Fluffy, rich & creamy. A perfect match with the rice & creamy bechamel sauce. We couldn't get enough of it. Definitely a must-try!  I'd really recommend one to order the L size though. We were taken aback by the small portion of the S size omurice- the portion was really small, even to a small eater like me.
Ramen Burger (Beef) RM18.90
Perfectly grilled beef steak, drizzled with lots of sauce & condiments, topped with omelette & lettuce, and sandwiched between a ramen "bun". Served with a side of coleslaw.
"Messy" must be the middle name of this Ramen Burger. Be prepared for a mess & a mouth watering experience while devouring this burger. The ramen "bun" wasn't too hard as I initially feared nor overly soggy. It has a texture that is just nice, a little crispy on the outside, nice & springy on the inside.

The beef burger patty wasn't a real burger patty- it was a beautiful slice of beef steak cooked medium well that retained a little bit of pinkish-ness inside. One bite and I was hooked on the tenderness and juciness of the beef steak, which paired up perfectly with the creamy sauce & omelette and the ramen "bun". Only qualm was the raw onions inside the burger which had an extremely pungent taste which I personally disliked. I am usually fine with raw onions but the onse in this burger was too pungent for me to handle.

An extremely filling burger, I have to emphasis. If you're a small eater I'd recommend you to share this with a partner :)
Tiramisu FOC
After our meal, one of the Iron Man cleared our table, and presented to us this! A complementary slice of Tiramisu Cake (with a Doraemon on the left, & "Itadakimasu Susuru" (Translation: Eat Up! Slurp) written on the top of the plate using chocolate sprinkles!) 
Free food tends to taste better, no? And of course, it taste even better when so much effort was put in for a 5 Star Plating decoration. Okay jokes aside :P Time for a proper review.

The Ladies Finger layer had the right amount of softness & firmness, it wasn't overly soft & mushy nor too hard. The espresso-infused ladies finger layer was sandwiched between creamy layer of cream, & topped with crunchy walnut that was coated with rich, sweet caramel, had a perfect balance of texture (creamy & crunchy) & taste (bitter & sweet). Worth the calories? A big fat YES!

We were quite impressed with our first visit to Slurp so we decided to drop by for lunch on a weekday.
We went for their set lunches which are reasonably priced (most sets are priced below RM15) and the set comes with a drink (choice of Green Tea or Rice Tea) & a side Salad or Miso Soup.
Salad
A simple salad consisting of shredded cabbage, chopped onions & cherry tomatoes, drizzled with Japanese sesame dressing.

Omelette Wrap Rice RM12.90
Fried Rice wrapped with omelette drizzled with ketchup, served with a side of karage (Fried Chicken)
The portion of the omelette wrap rice is more than double of the omurice, but it comes with a much lower price tag , which certainly was a delight! A hearty & extremely filling meal (and it comes with a crunchy on the outside & tender on the inside chicken karage!)

If we were to choose between the omu rice and omelette-wrap rice, we'd go for the omu rice. The higher ratio of the fluffy omelette to rice works better for us. Nevertheless, both are still good in their own way.
Burger (Prawn) RM12.90
Choice of Beef, Chicken, Fish or Prawn burger patty, sandwiched in between fresh crisp lettuce, sliced tomatoes, and a soft & fluffy charcoal bun.
The prawn patty compose of a smashed patty with real prawn meat and crab sticks, with a crunchy breaded crust to give it an extra delightful crunch. A delightful treat indeed, but it would be better if there were more sauce in the burger as it felt a little dry. The fries too on the other hand, was underseasoned & slightly overcooked, thus lead to a over-crunchy texture which I couldn't bring myself to finish.

Verdict: A must-visit for comic/anime/manga lover. Don't miss out on their delightful omurice! Come on a weekday afternoon for the best deals.
