When I feel low (like one of those moments, like yesterday when the usual “pick-up service arrangement” did not happen, and the “coordinator” did not bother to tell me that the car was not available to pick me up from work, and I tried to call hubby to ask him to pick me up but it turned out that his mobile phone went dead while he was in back-to-back meetings so he could not charge the battery so I tried to call and call and call for over an hour in vain, and then the rain started pouring down -heavily, and so there was no taxi available, and so I had to wait for over another hour till the rain subsided to drizzles, and I could walk while carrying 4x1000ml milk -in cartons to stop a taxi on the street, and the taxi driver, who didn’t know how to get to my house but didn’t bother to ask, was speeding and so he missed all the turns so we got lost and had to do a few u-turns and sudden turns, and finally I got home to find her sleeping already), I sniff this love potion and poof! the upsets and the stress disappear.
I don’t particularly like to review a franchise or resto with too many branches (not that I don’t like them, it’s just that they are usually a pretty safe choice to have your meals. The food at franchised or those with tens of branches are usually just mediocre or just too popular that no one needs convincing) but it was an easy Saturday and I was in the mood of easy writing (and bad photos. sowwwiiee.). So be warned, this entry might not be informative at all (yeah, like my other writings are.. hehehe).
Well, my dad (aka Datu’ aka Raissa’s grandpa), Raissa, and myself went to PIM2 checking out some jackets for dad then lunch. When deciding on where to eat, the decision fell on Takigawa because it offered 50% off if paying using BNI credit card. It would be silly not to eat there, yea? Yup, I thought so too
We ordered 2 main dishes and shared them among the three of us. Takigawa Kamameshi (eel, crab, salmon, scallop, prawn, chicken and vegetable-steamed rice) and Kushiyaki Platter (9 pieces combination of satay made of ox-tongue, prawn, cheese filled sausage, beef bacon, chicken, chicken skin, shitake mushroom, chicken gizzard, and chicken wing). I found the meals were pleasant. It tasted not out-of-this world but it certainly was good enough for me and my Dad. Raissa also ate well there, so that’s a pretty good sign.
Dad also ordered Peanut Colada, which was very nice as well as I was told. I didn’t take a sip but Dad said it was good and he finished it with little help from a cute babygirl.
On a second thought, this might not be a review after all. I just wanna tell everyone that I had a lovely afternoon with a good lunch as an ending. And a reminder for those who hold BNI credit card, rush there while the 50% off offer lasts. Pssst, Pizza Marzano also offers the same deal
