It is a culturally valuable building that combines art and design by making use of space that was originally an earthen floor, a storehouse, and an air-raid shelter in the basement.
Our lunch consisted of Nyumen noodles topped with a keema curry fried tofu pouch, Keema curry, Cheese cake, "Purin" pudding made with local eggs, Persimmon enzyme syrup soda and iced coffee.
Rokkan rom also has a select shop and a gallery. The walls are adorned with interesting art pieces and there are several book shelves filled with all manner of art & design books.
