Since we were around the area, having just had coffee at Group Therapy, we decided to go check out that very famous Teppei restaurant in Orchid Hotel that we failed to make reservations for… The restaurant had opened up dinner reservation slots earlier on 2 Jan 2014 and the phone line was jammed up on the very first day with all slots from Mar 2014 to Jun 2014 taken up by the end of first day!
We were quite surprised by the number of Japanese restaurants in the area, and at Orchid Hotel, there were also a ramen place and gyoza place that had super long queues! There was no queue at Teppei, because you had to make reservations for dinner at the 21-seater… Haha! So we were just looking at the menu and a very friendly lady sitting outside the restaurant was giving us recommendations on where else to check out, and that we should come queue for lunch instead.
Since we weren’t hungry yet, we decided to heed the lady’s advice and stroll to 100AM next to Amara Hotel to check out Ramen Keisuke Tori King… Which also had a long queue… Pengz!
