UPDATED: Wagamama in Heathrow Terminal 5!


I loved this funny little noodle place in London. Not so little anymore!

UPDATE: Unfortunately I'm less than impressed. Growth, it would appear, has not been good. The noodles were overcooked and mushy, the same for the veggies, and horribly disappointingly, the carrot juice with ginger -- one of my all-time favorites -- appeared to be watered down.

rating: 2 feet




verdict: The only reason it's getting a "2 feet" rating is that it used to be good. Perhaps it still is and I got unlucky. Otherwise, it's just a 1. Sad, sad, sad.



Puri Mas



Went to a big group dinner for Indonesian Rijsttafel (Reistafel; Rice Table) at a place called Puri Mas. It was good enough, but nothing stellar. It's off the Leidseplein, which is a heavily touristed area, so it's pretty much expected that anything around there will be only mediocre. I wouldn't go out of my way to go there again, and having been there before would prefer to see out something else. But if dragged there again, I wouldn't kick and scream too loud.
