Decorated with China dolls, brittle teacups, and curious embroidered wall hangings that could have been inspired by Hillary Knight's illustrations for 'Eloise', Hiroko's is a museum of fragility and whimsy. The menu must be intended for Japanese expats, as it is evenly divided between home-style curries and strange interpretations of Neapolitan spaghetti; filtered through Japanese sensibilities, of course. We loved the pork katsu curry, which had a slight peppery bite to it, but were frankly weirded out by the spaghetti dressed with mushrooms, flying fish roe, shredded nori, and broccoli. The usual range of coffees and teas round out the menu, with some snacks and desserts.
