You know how some places serve better food at dinner than at lunch?
I think Miyabi is one such place.
Remember my luncheon sometime ago? Tsk.
… Or maybe I just have more sophisticated ordering skills after 7pm.
So you noticed. We love unagi.
We ordered manymanymore dishes that night, but the waitress prohibited me from taking photos and stood close to our table to watch me the whole time.
Restaurant snootiness still exists?!
Anyway, 12 days later I am back with my weapon – Ahia Nichol, my cousin and a very important person at Miyabi.
Hey waitress, watch and weep!
We each order a dinner set which consists of a main dish of our choice, 2 mini appetizers, miso soup, rice or noodles, ice cream or fruits.
I order a Mini Sukiyaki which turns out to be more maxi than mini. The beef is tender and the soup very tasty, but I can’t possibly allow myself to finish this giant bowl that is good for two. I beg Ahia Nic to share it with me.
But minutes after he turns me down, I find myself slurping up the last strand of noodle from my bowl, and I catch my date smiling amusedly at me.
Oh come on, Nichol Yap, wipe that nasty grin off your face!
