Standing in the queue with little to do. May as well take a photo of the sign at the front of the restaurant!
J thinks I'm crazy with my camera (I take photos of a lot of random stuff) but he's actually the one that's into cameras and photography. I can't quite work out his expression in this pic - could be hunger cross bemusement cross 'here Jenny goes again'.
Everytime I'm at Ryo's, I see people order this dish and I finally gave in and decided to give it a go. It's the Japanese Beef Curry Rice with Pork Cutlet. Shreds of beef are laced through the curry sauce (don't worry, the curry is only mild), served with a generous piece of pork cutlet. The pickles on the side go surprisingly well with the rice and curry. It boggles me that the curry always seems to be 'overflowing' on the plate but once you dig in, you'll find that there's not too much curry left once you're done eating (it all gets gobbled up).
Fortunately, our wait for the table wasn't long this time round (sometimes the queue can put you off by the time you sit down for your meal). Meals generally come out quickly and to be expected (as it was a busy day), the waiters/waitresses were just as eager to clear the table as soon as we were done. It's completely understandable and generally when I come to Ryo's, I'm not expecting a long lunch anyway. Pfft to the guy waiting in line that started staring at my friend (who was the last to finish his bowl of noodles). Seriously, did you think that staring at someone would make them eat faster? And the fact that I stared at you to tell you to stop and you just keep staring? Some people are unbelievable!
