One colleague was pestering another colleague to ask us all to go try out this new place at Raffles City basement. So when this place got reviewed on Sat’s Business Times and also on Sunday Times, all of us said, OK lah.. Let’s go, let’s go…
So, we packed ourselves into a colleague’s car (like sardines) and head off to Raffles City. Long queue! (realise it is not because there’s lots of people, it’s just service staff explaining things customers how things work here.)
It is the same concept as Marche. (Or another colleague said, it’s Bangkok style food court). They give you this wooden token so that you can ‘reserve’ your place. They also give out this Japanese design RFID card for you to order food.
I had Fried Pork Curry.
Colleague had donburi.
We shared a sashimi sushi.
Another colleague had ebi and mushroom tempura.
with his udon soup.
Remember we like to eat in groups? We get to ‘pinch’ everyone’s food. haha… Don’t you think it is fun like that?
More photos tomorrow.
This place is still quite new, so expect long waits from inexperience staff. These electronic gadgets do hang too. I was ordering dessert and the RFID card reader machine had to be rebooted by the staff, and cards were not detected stuff. Overall, still OK. Give it some time to settle down.
