I walked into warm air because the restaurant had just opened. The server greeted me immediately by asking me if I wanted "take out" or "eat here." I told him the latter and went to sit at the counter, but he asked to be allowed to wipe it first. He apologized for the wait and the heat. Then, he said, "I'll bring you a menu and some iced water in a second." I asked him to bring me a Diet Coke as well. Even better, he brought a bottle of Diet Coke with a cup of ice.
As you can see, the service was outstanding. Unfortunately, I cannot say the same for the food. The fishcake which topped my miso ramen--I had ordered the miso ramen combo, which comes with gyoza and fried rice--was so rubbery, I could've dribbled it to the fast food restaurant next door. The piece of pork was too fatty; I bit around the fat and left the rest. The ramen noodles were delicious as was the broth, but the gyoza was almost burnt on one side and perfect on the other, which made for some uneven chewing.
While I was eating and reading the news, the air conditioner kicked in. I also noticed some wonderful classical music had begun playing. Happy, I turned my attention to the fried rice; however, it had an odd smell and an odd taste. It took me 3 bites to identify the sesame seed oil. I'm sure others would be delighted; I detest sesame seed and apparently sesame seed oil.
