I noticed this shop at Jalan Hutton when I look for lunch in New Word Park during my birthday. It was nearly 3PM and the lunch hour almost finished so I plan to visit it in other day. When I walk away I noticed a young girl dressed in pink maid custume… uh… uniform walked out thanking leaving guests. 8o I wonder whether there is Sailor Moon inside….
Anyway, here came Friday (15/Aug/08) in which I snake out earlier at 11:30am (in fact, consider “normal” as that is my usual lunch time… wahahaha) and went to the shop to have a try. There is no customer there yet and probably I was their first customer that afternoon… *gulupp* After flipping the simple menu I ordered Nabeyaki Udon & Salmon Temaki Set. At the mean time I snapped some photos…
The dining hall is spacious with a bar counter serving sake as well. I managed to snap a photo of the maid preparing temaki for me 😳 The girls is wearing short pink maid dress which make this place probably a nice place for guys…. *woohoo*
Getting back to business, the set lunch (RM23.00++) I ordered is not bad as they come with 2 x salmon temaki, nabeyaki udon, chawan-mushi, and fruit. The maids are friendly as they greet you when you arrive, and “arigato gozai masu ta” when you leave.
An area of improvement is perhaps the menu itself to make it informative and attractive enough. For example, I was not aware that green tea is actually free until I received the bill. In the menu, it says additional RM2.80 is required for coffee, english tea, and fruit juice (set lunch), but never mention about green tea which is common in every Japanese restaurant. However, with the attractive maids, who care how much is the addtional cost. Just order Hennesy V.S.O.P and drink with the maids! 😆
