Apart from their outstanding siphon brewed coffee, UCC also excels in the food department in my notebook. Yes, they do serve food there. Not just the sweet, pastry-types you get in most other coffee shops (although they do have fantastic selection of desserts), but honest to goodness full-blown meals. Not just sandwiches (If you feel do feel like a sandwich though, try the Cliffhanger. Very good.). Not just salads. Not just pastas. But, yes, rice meals, too. Most of the meals in the menu comes in big servings, easily big enough for sharing, so you may want to talk to your server about how big exactly the serving is for a meal before you order.
My current favorite in the menu is Japanese Seafood Soup Spaghetti. You can have it in tomato, white, or curry sauce, but I prefer tomato sauce. Delectable choice shrimps, squid, and fish swimming along with pasta in a rich tomato soup- it's just perfect for a cold and squishy rainy day. It's an uncanny combination, but it really works. It works pretty deliciously, as a matter of fact.
