We took our friend to eat for her birthday last night. The company and fellowship was wonderful as always. The place we ate was a total disappointment.
It was one of those Japanese places where you can either sit at the grill and be entertained or you can be stuck in the back in the dark and hope a waitress comes to take your order.
There was a wait for the grill, and being old, we needed to eat before our bedtime, so we went to the back. We finally got our drink order placed, and would have liked to ask a few questions about the menu, but weren't given the opportunity since we had to finally go find someone to take our order.
If you've been to one of these places lately, you know the food is quite expensive. And I feel it is very overpriced when you have no clue what any of it is and can't seem to find out.
I ordered Edamame(soybeans). Thought they'd be good. I thought they needed to be cooked a bit more and they had no taste whatever.
There were four of us so we decided to split two orders, for which we asked for two extra plates. By the time the extra plates came, we had eaten all the food. Remember it was getting late and we were all hungry. The food was cold, the service poor and the cost was high. Needless to say, we weren't terribly happy with the choice, but we didn't say much because our birthday girl had chosen it.
We finished the food, paid and left. I don't think I'll be patronizing that particular Japanese restaurant any time soon. I'm kinda a buffet girl anyway. That way I can see what I'm planning to eat before it is put in front of me.
I've whinned enough this morning. So, I'll ask, Are you a 'serve it to me' or a 'buffet' type of person? It will speak volumes about your personality, temperament, and possibly waist size.
Have a wonderful Friday. Love one another.
