My mom and I for a late lunch to MOF the other day as i wanted to try their member's lunch menu but the waitress told me that promotion was over! ): BUT! she told us they have a tea special for students/members/senior citizens(?)! So there's 30% off of all set menu and ala carte items! YAY!I got a free green tea for flashing my member's card: Tea is left to remain hot on a little stove when a small candle holder at the bottom.

I got a free green tea for flashing my member's card: Tea is left to remain hot on a little stove when a small candle holder at the bottom. I like the tea was it becomes very dense after awhile and it cleans the taste off so you won't have a breath that's reek of the lunch you just ate.
As we were there at an unearthly lunch hour, the restaurant was pretty quiet and there was only 1 waitress working. I guess it's still manageable because most of the people there were either sitting alone or with just 1 other person, sipping their tea and chatting away. Decor of the place was quite simple, minimal jap decorations around. The place is quite big and they have booths as well as individual tables. It is able to manage large crowds as the tables can be easily shifted to make space for bigger groups.
I didn't really like the waitress that day as she was showing an attitude, as though we offended her by being there. My mom was asking about the member's lunch menu and she said they don't have it and told us about the tea special. When we enquired further she gave an exasperated sigh and said "i told you already" blahblahblah. Plus, she just gave this face :l the whole time. So annoying!
So anyway, after much deliberation over what to eat as the menu was SOOOOOO thick and filled with goodies, I ordered the seafood curry udon: It was piping hot when she served it! I like it like that. But i'm a bit disappointed as the curry was a bit more spicy than normal. I always thought japanese curry had a certain sweet taste to it, but this just was pure spicy. Ingredients in it included prawns, squid, carrots, onions and spring onions. The udon was thick and nice, i was happily slurping up all the strands of it! Prawn was crunchy, the way i like it. I felt that they could've given more carrots as i thought it was too little. The only qualm i have about this dish is that the chef had made it to spicy, not sure if it's to cater to us singaporeans, who like most of our dishes spicy. I thought that they should preserve the authentic jap taste. I wouldn't say it's exceptional as I think this curry might have been from those curry boxes that can be purchased at the supermarket. Yet, I must say it's still quite well done.
Seafood curry udon - $13.60 - 30% = $9.52! (even cheaper than the members' lunch menu that i was enquiring about!)
Tip: Member's gets discount off of some items and there are daily set menu for them. Also get to enjoy rebates and many other privileges!
