雖說每座城市的車站周圍都是最熱鬧的,不過天仙卻鮮少來這附近。這天剛好有事來到這塊區域,雖然已經下午了,但肚子也開始餓了。附近選擇很多,但不想踩雷(這天原本沒有什麼冒險精神)本來想要選一間連鎖店,至少吃的安心些。後來因為第一選擇還須排隊(都下午了),懶得等就另外看看。走著走著想說前頭不是有Burger King嗎?Burger King分店不多,若今天選擇吃Burger King也算是挺新鮮的。後來看到這間平價日式料理,肚子已經餓扁了就把漢堡王拋到腦後了。一進去,才想說:這...就是原本的Burger King吧!?(這樣算有吃到嗎?)

It's always busiest around train stations. It's true for every city. But I rarely come to this neighbourhood around Taipei Main Station. We came here running an errand, and got hungry soon after. There were a lot of choices, but initially, I didn't intend to be adventurous. We initially picked a franchise, but we had to queue up, and I didn't feel like waiting. We remembered a Burger King nearby, then got distracted by this affordable Japanese place. It wasn't until we came in that we realised: this, indeed, used to be Burger King!

以天仙的不專業觀察,我認為這間店雖地段好,但要生存恐怕也有點難度。東西要好吃之外也要有賣點、噱頭。否則就只能一直吸引向我們這樣誤打誤撞的人,或是純粹不想排隊等別間的人客。加上這邊租金應該不算便宜吧?若是一周有幾天生意不理想的,該月恐怕就有點難度過了!

From my very unprofessional observation, despite having the location advantage, it's probably still going to be very difficult for them to survive. In locations like this, you can't just have good food. You have to go the extra mile, and make a really deep impression on people. Or else, the only customers they're ever going to attract, are people like us - those who are too lazy to wait in line to dine at other places. I reckon the rent is probably pretty high as well? If they have a few poor business days... I can hardly imagine how they'll survive the month!

至於天仙一向比較在意的服務?其實我只能說,真的勉強通過而已。店員幫我們帶位,那桌子上本來有擺東西。我不記得我有看到店員擦桌子。這是我認為不okay的地方。即使桌子原本就不髒,但客人不知道你之前擺了什麼東西(只是擺著乾淨的東西?還是別人用過的呢?)

In terms of the service? I'm afraid the service is only satsifactory. The girl who took us to our table cleared the stuff on the table, but I really don't remember seeing her wiping it clean. I don't care what was on the table. All I know is that if you wipe the table, it's a gesture that shows you care about what the customer thinks.

ueta02

即使有wifi,餐廳的本質 - 餐點以及服務都要到位才行(何況用餐完畢後才被告知wifi還沒開通...那你們是貼好玩的嗎?)

It says there's wifi access. Is it a plus? I don't know. It's a restaurant afterall... and you must pay attention to the food and service! (Afterwards we were told that the wifi was not accessible, yet! So... the note is just for reference?)

餐點的部分,天仙點了生魚片定食。定食附的飯是醋飯。初嘗幾口覺得還不錯。但後來吃到幾塊已經黏在一起的,嚴重影響到口感。

As for the food, I ordered sashimi teishoku. The rice was sushi rice (marinated in vinegar). The first few bites were nice, but then I started tasting lumps... 

ueta05

好家在生魚片還算新鮮。擺盤也還算到位。但是哇沙米的鮮綠度讓我覺得極有可能是化學合成的(算了,人家是平價料理不要要求太多)。

The raw fish were fresh, alright... and the plate was well displayed. The wasabi, however, didn't seem nor tasted like natural wasabi. 

ueta06

隨餐附贈的茶碗蒸基本上也是勉強okay。

The chawanmushi was also satisfactory, but nothing special... 

ueta08

這碗是老蔡點的。我有吃到的那一口魚,還算不錯。但天仙其實不太喜歡這種口感太雜的料理,所以就算他好吃,我也不太可能會點。老蔡雖好養(什麼都吃得下去),但要是連他都說難吃,那恐怕... (不過這還好啦!)

This was what the other half ordered. I did get a bit of the fish, and it tasted fine. But I don't like the taste of soft and solid foods mingled together... So even if it was good, there is little chance I'd ever order this. My other half is not so picky, so if even he says something is bad, then it must be really bad! Fortunately, this was okay.

雖然打著續飯續湯免費,天仙還是認為這個地段的消費者不太位因為便宜幾十塊就選擇他們。如果他們選擇開在大學附近生存的機率可能會大一些。對於這間實在沒什麼特色的平價日本料理,又選擇開在隔壁幾間號餐餐都要排隊同樣也是日本料理的地方,天仙覺得,不知道他們能夠生存多久。

Despite free top-up of rice and soup, I still think they picked the wrong spot for business. I reckon they have a better chance of surviving around university campus... If their main target customers were students, their business will surely thrive! But to open a shop here, and about three or four shops next to it is another Japanese place that apparently has a larger crowd of patrons? I think they are in real danger...

即使打出自己的堅持,但餐點實在是說不出有什麼特色。唯一值得一提的就是看似是一群年輕人自己出來打拼。這點要是我沒看錯,倒是還蠻值得鼓勵的。

However, this seems to be a business of a group of young people. That, is something worth mentioning, and worth encouraging.

但若要生存,還是得加油好嗎?

But if you want to survive, please make the effort!!

  • 年輕人創業是要多磨練
    跌幾次就長大了
  • 靓媽~
    其實我覺得他們選錯地點了
    如果選在校區附近開的話
    應該會蠻成功的

  • claire
  • 真的~台灣的餐飲市場競爭的非常激烈
    若沒有二把刷子,真得很難長久
  • claire:
    是啊!何況這個地點競爭太激烈了
    前面幾步路就有號稱要排隊排好久的日式餐廳(店名忘了)
    這樣要生存真的有困難哩

  • 謝蘿莉
  • 想要在台灣餐飲市場打出一片天
    肯定要有相當實力呀!

    但還是為年青人出來創業拍拍手:)
  • 謝蘿莉:
    創業要好有膽量喔
    像我這種輸不起的人
    真的沒創業的心臟 Orz
    所以還是值得鼓勵~

  • 看來真的是很普通的一家店呢
    那個芥末有點綠過頭了XD
    鮭魚看起來還滿新鮮的
    鯖魚定食擺盤真的不好
    鯖魚還是另外放比較優
    看起來真的挺危險的呢
  • 老K:
    很普通的店
    如果消費族群是學生
    可以打低價仗
    還蠻有勝算的
    不過開在這...
    真的... 不太妙的感覺啊

  • 黑哥桃
  • 這間的確要加油~
    其實坊間蠻多這樣的店,不過若處在租金不便宜的地段
    連消費者都替業者捏一把汗阿
  • 黑哥桃:
    真的啊!
    地段的選擇很重要啊~~
