On Another Voucher

So we were at the Curve hunting for Non-Halal food during the breaking fast period in the evening. All the western restaurant seemed to be crossed out in the list, seeing how the Apartment placed reserved cards on most of the tables outside on the walkway. Don't even get me to into talking how ridiculous all these reservations are. But that evening we finally headed over to Sakae Sushi. Despite being Halal, we assumed there won't be much Muslims breaking fast in a Japanese restaurant.

We didn't have much problem finding our seats alright. Perhaps we were just one step ahead as we were shown to the second last available table in the shop. Smacked right next to the conveyor belt too. Not that it's something to be over-excited of, Sakae probably is the only one with all the tables attached to the conveyor belt.

Which, left me nothing to complain of...

Because both of us ended up having about 28 plates of sushis, maki and hand-rolled stuffs. As usual we rounded our Japanese dinner with a bowl of Chawamushi each. Love steamed egg. Yummy.

The dinner came out to be of a reasonable total alright. Thanks to the soulmate who had quite a sharp observations. Placards of special promotions placed behind another bigger banner didn't miss his vision. That's how we came to learn about the second plate of hand-roll free if you're a Citibank card holder.

But I guess the best thing is, we were just about 5 bucks over the minimum limit to be awarded a 10RM voucher.

Another reason for us to go back and spend triple-quadruple times more than what the voucher values at the next time, like how we were lured back to the over-rated Sushi Zanmai, which the soulmate wasn't pretty keen off.

Damn those shops really know how.

How come no Muslims breaking fast in Sakae? After having eaten at some good japanese restaurants like Yuzu @ Gardens and Sagano @ Rennaissance Hotel, and Zipangu @ Shangrila KL, I find Sakae and Sushi King to be lousy. But Sakae is still better than Sushi King in my opinion.
