So all eats are not created equal...whenever you get a good one, there has to a bad one too, right?
So, let me tell you about a bad one...now, I usually don't blog about bad places because "if I don't have something nice to say about something..." well, you know how the saying goes.
You may have already eaten here, and liked it, but I need to tell you about this place though, because my experience was really bad.
After an errand in the area, my mom, dad and I stopped to pick up some lunch at Matsumoto's Okazuya.
There were lots of choices, so we picked up some of this and some of that, paid and left.
My Grandma and Aunty Marian came over for lunch and we all shared.
Teri-chicken, tamagoyaki, kinpira gobo, inarizushi, chow funn & corned beef hash patties...US$18.22 tax included.
While all this food sounded good, it wasn't.
The corned beef hash patties were hard & burnt. Inarizushi was just rice, usually you have at least some flecks of carrot, there was also an unusual citrusy flavor to it. The kinpira was made from a frozen gobo mix, so it was very very mushy.
I could go on and on. I will say that the only thing good was the tamagoyaki, very flavorful and light.
In Japan, they often say that when you partake of a meal, you can feel what the person who cooked the meal was feeling, thinking...for me though, I just couldn't feel the "love" from the person who cooked this.
I'm glad we tried this place and I'm also glad that for the most part, my eats have been good experiences, but we won't be coming back here.
