When Less is More

Hula-Hula by williamnyk

Lunched with SK and her granny at Rakuzen, Empire Shopping Gallery on Sunday. Our initial plan was T Forty Two, but they closed down, giving way to Espresso Lab. In the year of the horse, Empire decided to use the Chinese lion as the main theme. Quite nicely done really. And upon arrival, I was just in time to view a Chinese acrobatic act with very butch looking PRC girls in spandex. The background music was hypnotic-- "Hula, hula, hula, hula x 1000". On stage, they transformed into human slinkies using hula hoops. LOL. Turns out that Kura in One World Hotel shares the same menu with Rakuzen. Both below to the Super Dining Group. The staff there were super attentive. They kept refilling your tea to the point that I found it annoying and intrusive. So free meh? They could have just left the pot on the table like Pasta Zanmai does. And they don't seem to take no for an answer. At one point, I just surrendered and dutifully passed him the cup. And there was one gay waiter with a super slang-y English. He rolled through the words. Couldn't understand a word he was saying. A word of warning, don't order their cod bone nabe. The soup stock has a sour after-taste. Couldn't mask it with soy sauce or wasabi. Failed!
