Impromptu dinner with Ivy & decided on Menya Musashi cos she has yet to try before.
She had Seafood Ramen with Black (garlic) soup base & gyoza. Gyoza is quite good. Fillings inside is very juicy
I had Kodou Ramen with Red (Spicy) coup base & Chicken Kaarage. The red soup base is not spicy as I expected. Chicken Kaarage is tender but too oily
We also ordered Golden Mushroom Tempura which is very salty & oily. The oil also has this "over-due" taste & smell
We then went to shop around for a while before heading to Mado for dessert
Pomegranate Soda which is terribly sweet
Waffles with Chocolate Ice Cream, Banana & Strawberries & Chocolate Sauce. Waffle is soft but turns soggy after awhile; Ice cream is a little too sweet & melts very fast; banana was sliced too thinly
Service at Mado is quite bad.
When we ask the staff on what's the recommended dessert, the reply we get is "it's up to individual". Gheez.. what kind of answer is that? If you're not sure of what's the recommended dessert, I'm sure you know what's popular right? Or at the very least, let us know what's your own preference! When asked for ice water, staff only gave us 1 glass when obviously there is 2 of us.
These are still not really that bad. The worst is, one of the staff who is having a flu was sniffing away when refilling our ice water. Not saying that she shouldn't be working, but she should at least wear a mask if she is sick. The next moment, Ivy saw her blowing her nose with tissue, and then went to grab a spoon for a customer by holding the shallow bowl of the spoon instead of the handle! Isn't she spreading the germs to others by doing so?
Apart from the service, hygiene is another issue which we will not re-visit.
