Just a short public service announcement to my time-poor lunching friends in the Melbourne CBD.
I waited 20 minutes for a Bento Box at Ramen Ya (at the GPO Building) today. 20 minutes is 3 + billable units. It is enough time for me to dictate 2 letters, or, more importantly, buy a new pair of shoes. Sadly, when the Bento Box finally turned up it was really average – even when judged by $11 takeaway lunch standards. The only thing that irks me more than waiting too long for food, is waiting too long for shitty food.
Save your time and pennies for the sensational sushi rolls from Kenzan, only a few shops down. I highly recommend the soft shell crab roll.
