Observations from Friday
A few random observations and experiences from today.
This week we have had predominantly guys eating lunch. Over 80% of the lunch crowd are male. Except today when all of a sudden it became 70% female.
Instead of a jam-packed lunch session, we had a steady trickle of customers.
Putting chairs out immediately after the main lunch period ended extended our carry-over business by another hour and a half.
2 food reviewers that had come to taste the food returned tonight with their friends for omakase. That has to be a good sign.
When people drink sake they get much more forward and funny. It’s nice.
Two colleagues from an office upstairs at OUB came in and drank a bottle of Seikyo Maboroshi Jyunmai. They randomly asked if I was single and then decided that they will return next week with one of their female friends that (in their words) is a “perfect match.” Note: they just met me.
We had our first spilled bowl of soup today. I am amazed it took more than a week before an accident like that happened.
People like to customize take-away boxes even though they could get the pre-packaged takeaway for cheaper.
Everyone eats salmon. To the point where we ran out. Good thing more will be flown in tomorrow.
Oh yeah, props to the couple that enjoyed the 8 course omakase… while standing the whole time! All the seats were taken but that didn’t stop them from eating. Trendsetters!
Time for a shower and hopefully deep dream-filled sleep.
