Nothing much could be said abour a franchise like this. There's not much to expect from it, but then that also minimizes the chance of being disappointed. I'd been here a few times and thought the food okay. The service was also quite satisfactory. Before I continue, however, I must say that yes, I had sashimi again... I know it's risky to eat raw food during pregnancy, but now that the child's been born, and she's fit and well, please cut me some lack~
We were here quite early that day, but we were hungry already. We though about heading to Hainan Chicken, thinking it was still okay to travel the distance, but then we both got lazy and settled for closer by choices. My hubby said he'd never had Watami before, so here we were!
There were a lot of choices. In the end, we decided to order set meals for two.
The drink list was quite extensive. Really craved for some icy cold beer... but I refrained!!
There was also a menu for big parties.
This location was quite large in space, so in case you needed service, but couldn't find anyone, they'd thoughtfully designed this bell, so you could just 'ring' them.
The first dish up was the salad. Unfortunately it was my least favourite - Caeasar salad. Thankfully there was not much sauce. I prefer my salad on its own.
Japanese style fried chicken. Nothing special, but it tasted quite fine with the lemon sprinkled over it.
There was also hot pot!
The waitress told us no to drink the soup, as it was really salty. The pot was quite nice. There were quite a lot of stuff in it. Just right for the two of us.
And then there was skewer chicken, which was quite nice, as I remembered.
Hubby knew how hard it was for me to hold my crave for sashimi. He ordered this for himself so he could give me a slice or two of the sashimi. It was nice to fulfill the crave, without feeling too guilty.
It wasn't anything special, as said earlier. But each experience had been just fine. I suppose it would be a safe choice if you can't figure out what to eat!
Then seeing that I still had enough stamina to go on, we took a stroll and soon arrived at the famous "Eastern Ice Store". Not long after our visit, the news reported that they raised the price. And also because I had less and less stamina as I approach the mid and late trimesters, this was our last visit since...
The place is always crowded, so it might take a while to get seats. Though if you were alone, it might be a little challenge...
The self service hot water and sugar syrup are for those who feel they could adjust the taste a bit.
The service here is quite 'Taipei'... Be forewarned! Please remember to decide what you want beforehand, or else the one to take your oder would feel quite impatient... so will the people lining up behind you.
It's pretty good! However, it really isn't worth what it costs now. I guess unless friends come to visit from abroad, and they'd like to tastes some local dishes... I shouldn't want to come back.
