On Visiting Sushi Zanmai

So the soulmate and I visited Sushi Zanmai again the other day, way way back a few weeks ago. I failed to make a reservation as it was already 4 in the afternoon when I made the call, so naturally we were expecting to wait upon our arrival in one of their branches in the Gardens.

When we were finally shown our seat, that was when the feast started. In some exageration of course. I didn't choose much, other than some of the sushis during the second round, am a very relaxed person, as long as there is no fermented beans sushi...

I had cold noodle, ended up eating it in the sauce. Was too lazy to dip them noodles before every bite.

But one thing we noticed, the green peas dwindled in size. Of the servings I mean, at most only half compared to what it was months ago. And the mushroom dishes were too sparsely arranged in its big plate, it seemed as if they were desperately trying to cover up their insufficiency.

The beef-wrapped mushroom tasted so so. And their promotional dish of lobster tepanyaki was just normal...

Chawamushi arrived in 20 minutes, half the time we waited the last time we were there. At least our meal rounded up without much delay this time. Or else they would really expect a lot of complains from us...

... Which, I don't think they'll mind anyways, considering the long queue waiting outside the shop and all. I just don't get it why people still want to visit this place.

Rest assured we wouldn't be in a long time to come. At least so I thought.

But to think the meal was in commemorate with my resurrection, I'm pretty contented at the least. And they say, it's not the meal that matters, it's the time and our companies which make the meal special.

I like your watch better than the food design. Till now, I never had the privilege to eat there. Now I wonder whether the people were paid to queue up daily to attract. I never learnt this type of advertising yet. LOL
