    Waraku and Paul Maison

    This entry was supposed to be posted on 2 Apr and 8 Apr but due to hectic schedule, it will only be posted now.

    <2 April 2012>

    It has been long since I had eaten the delicious curry pasta from Pasta de Waraku in HMV (sadly it is no longer there now). Thus when I was making my way for TTSH’s open house, I went to the Pasta de Waraku there in Novena.

    To my utter dismay, there seemed to be some company restructing resulting in a different menu and according to my neighbour diners, even the kids’ meal were changed to one without the complementary toy.

    Despite the lack of my curry pasta, I continued to dine there with their lunch special consisting of teriyaki chicken, cabonara pasta, salad, wages and mango juice.

    The food was ok. Not too bad, but then not extremely good though the cabonara did taste the same as before… But I guess the curry pasta had more appeal on me…

    Besides the ok food standard, I was displeased by one of the waiter’s lack of foresight. I entered the restaurant around 11.50am hence it was still quite empty with 5 diners or so. A lone diner such as I, was surprised to be brought to a table for 4. Presuming it was due to the lack of people so I just took the seat given. By the time my food arrived, it was about 12.15pm or so and that was when the business picked up a little.

    Around 12.40pm, a family of 4 was at the entrance and was asked to wait for a suitable table as there was only tables left for 2 at opposite sides. After waiting for 10 minutes or so, I guess they were a little annoyed seeing that there were tables but not so 4 people, meanwhile I had just finished my food, left with my 1/2 full drink. The waiter must have sensed their annoyance. He came over to my table after seeing his colleague clearing my plate and said ‘Miss, could you do me a favour and move to another table over the other side?’ I was shocked and annoyed as a check on my order would have told him that I had no further orders, only left with my glass of half filled mango juice which would take me less than 5 minutes to finish. While he was making such a request, I saw that  the family had left, so I told him, ‘No. I am left with this half glass of  mango juice, couldn’t you give me 5 minutes to finish it and leave instead of moving to another seat so as to finish my drink?’

    I was tempted to add in his lack of planning was part of the reason to his losing potential customers as he was the one who brought me to the table. But I kept my mouth shut. Seriously, this is the first time I was asked or ever saw someone asked to switch table when the lone diner, who is neither chatting on the phone nor reading something, is left with a half glassful of drink. I was totally pissed. It is not difficult to understand the situation of their company if it is filled with this particular staff who has no foresight in such daily scenarios. I guess it will sure be a loooong period of time before I will step into pasta de waraku at novena.

    <8 April 2012>

    Paul Maison De Qualite, has opened its store in Ngee Ang City Tower B, 3rd Floor, next to Books Kinokuniya, Orchard.

    With all the raves online for this famous French bakery, I bought some of their stuffs to try.

    Sadly I didn’t catch the names of the pastries except for Tarte Citron meringuée. The danish that I had tried was ok while the other apple pastry was extremely sour to both my mum’s and mine displeasure. The Tarte Citron meringuée was sour too but the top icing cream with slight burnt parts were able to reduce the sourness to some extent. I guess I shall just stick to the breads that most people were buying if I were to visit Paul in the future.
