It was one of those Saturday evenings where my partner and I had no idea where to go for dinner. Dinner at the mall was not ideal as most of the restaurants would be packed (even the lousy ones hah..hah...)
We have been wanting to try The Museum@The Starling but there is always a long queue since it is a new sensation. We'll just have to wait until the novelty wears off.
So the only place I know that might be peaceful is Tables of Joy.
It was about 7:30pm when we walked from The Starling and when we passed by the corner Korean BBQ place (geez..I don't know their name!), it was jam packed. So was The Good Batch. But it was all quiet at Tables of Joy. We were the only ones there.
Again we ordered from the sharing menu. We had the steamed spare ribs which my partner remarked "has been in the fridge before".
I don't know about that but what I have to say is that it was underwhelming. Not something I would order again.
For vegetables, I ordered my partner's favorite ladies fingers.
And the other vegetable, due to lack of choice was stir fried cabbage.
We had one more dish of course, which turned out to be the best one, the Chicken in a Basket.
The spring chicken was of a good size, not like the microscopic one that we had at an expensive restaurant at the mall. Besides fries, it came with a small serving of salad.
I told my partner, half-half heh..heh... We had half a chicken each and I enjoyed the chicken so much that I was thinking of visiting on my own and having that for lunch.
In spite of his not so favorable opinion on our previous visit, my partner did not say no to the cendol.
The green cendol jelly was still not as soft as it should be but we did not mind. I was really stuffed that evening because heh...heh.... I had my favorite dakgalbi for lunch.
When we left that evening, there were still no customers. I kind of feel sorry for them and I hope it was not a representation of their traffic on typical evenings/weekends. Would we be back? Of course, but I would be more inclined to choose from the set meals menu. I am sure my partner would find something suitable to eat.
