I have had better performances with lower prices at Shinra, which I have introduced earlier in this blog. Shinra may be an exception as its service is superb and the quality of the food is outstanding. Needless to say, the living cost is higher in the middle of Tokyo rather than in the suburb of Kanagawa Prefecture. I say the waiter should pay more attention to its service. The waiter were all polite and well educated, but not well organized. We were a group of four and sharing our noodles, but the waiter would not bring us a small bowl to share. In fact, they realize the last minute when we are nearly done sharing our noodles by rotating around our big noodle bowls......argghhh....useless. ok.ay. getting to harsh here.
I want to be as specific as I could with the critiques of the food. The noodles were okay, except for the Hot and Sour soup Noodles and the Sesame hot Noodle. The Hot and sour soup lack its spiciness and its sourness. I guess this could be covered by putting vinegar on our own. The Sesame hot Noodle was not the kind of dish I have expected. Somehow, I thought of soup being more thick, hot and spicy, and pleasant scent of Sesame. Then I realized in the end that I had a different kind of Chinese food. As I was used to Szechuan cuisine, I took the Hong-Kong style Sesame Hot Noodle as a whole new different dish. Considering that it was a different dish, it is not bad after all, but the noodle seemed a bit unique with sprouts, Chinese leek, and grind peanuts? the noodle was not spicy at all and the tedious scent of the peanuts? and the sesame made you sick of the taste in the end. I guess I will stick with the Szechuan Sesame Hot Noodle from now on. The daikon radish rice out of question...was very oily and somewhat like a regular fried mochi (rice cake) with small portion of grated radish. I would of left a bit of texture into the radish....enough said.
We have paid approximately 9000yen for a group of four. I guess 2250yen/person is considerable with the amount of food we have had, it's tolerable. Having said this, maybe I'm just strict because I have had almost the perfect Chinese food at first to compare with? Will have to journey out to see more Chinese food out there.
