メインはポークとビーフ。鹿児島ビーフはとても美味しかったですが、ポークは硬めでドライでした。

Then the main was pork and beef.  The pork was, I found a little tough and dry, but the Kagoshima Beef was very tender and delicious.

個人的には、パスタ2品とメインのビーフが美味しかったです。

Personally, I liked the 2 pasta dishes and the beef very much.

 

このお店はいつも日本人のお客さんが多いのですが、昨日もそうで、お隣のテーブルには日本人のお若い男性(30台半ば)お2人が座っておられました。そうでなくてもテーブルとテーブルの間が狭いので隣の会話が気になるのですがかなり大きな声で話しておられ、それも聞いていて日本人として恥ずかしくなるような内容で「耳のやり場」に困りました。あちらはわたしのことを日本人とは思っておられなかったのでしょうが、シンガポールでしかもこのお店のように日本人が多いところでは話しの内容に少し気をつけていただきたいものです。日本人の30台の既婚男性の生活はああなのかと思うと、情けなくなります。

 

The dinner was enjoyable enough but sadly the conversation I could not help over-hearing wasn’t.  This restaurant is very popular amongst Japanese and the table next to us was occupied by two 30-something Japanese men.  The tables are quite close together and they were talking very loudly so I wasn’t able to tune them out, even though I tried very hard, and their conversation was something that made me feel I ashamed of being Japanese.  I do hope they are not average 30-something Japanese men….
