condor @ york st.

I've been here a couple of times now and to this day, I haven't forgotten the first time I came here. It's actually a bit of a funny story; J & I were queueing for the adjacent Japanese restaurant when we were pulled out of the queue and sat down in Condor; albeit another Japanese restaurant. Bizarre as it sounds, we continued with the meal as both of us were on short lunch breaks and as we all know, it's hectic looking for a spot during the CBD lunch hour break. So the story continues; we order, we eat, we leave and we come back. Methinks Ramen is this little joint's specialty and having had it a few times now, I hereby stamp my recommendation.

Today, we were lucky and didn't have to wait long for a table. In true Japanese hospitality, the waitresses apologised for our wait and we sat down on their rather makeshift tables. I suppose if you're looking for a bit of decor, you're not going to find any here. It's pretty much open planned sitting by the side-walk with your York Street traffic providing your view. In the heat of summer, expect your flies and other flying beings swarm around your head and your meal (It's for these very reasons that I don't like sitting outside when eating - and really, today was one of those days). Instead of Ramen, I ordered the Chicken Teriyaki and what can I say, their food is consistently superb. It would've been awesome if they had some sort of cold noodle on their menu; that's probably the only thing that's missing. I saw a couple of tables around us eating the Green Tea Icecream. Unfortunately, J continues to show a dislike for anything too sweet so had to give that a miss; maybe next time. Costwise - expect to spend about $10-15 on a meal per person.

Anyway, I was in the city for a reason. Seems like my rollercoaster ride of events those that I've told, I signed the contract today :D
