Teriyaki Chicken with Miso Soup $10.90

Managed to score a seat along the window…YES!!! And then nearly had a heart attack because there was a fricken VERY realistic looking coiled up rubber snake that was on one of the benches. It belonged to the  6 yr old chatterbox who sat next to us who unabashfully proceeded to tell us loudly about her friends’ sleep over party. Usually, I DO NOT freak out at such silly things but this joltingly reminded me of my childhood adventure times back in Carisbrook, where I lead a bunch of local kids to their impending doom. We climbed through a barbed wire fence and I nearly stood on a coiled up snake much like the one that belonged to Miss Chatterbox.
Anyhoo, the wait was not long at all so in no time, my lunch came gliding over with a nice beaming smile. A beautifully presented dish, moist succulent grilled chicken with nice charred bits, rested on a mound of fluffy white rice. Next to that was a side salad of blanched beans, carrots and garden salad leaves in a satay-ish dressing. Bloody good lunch especially when given a good sprinkling of that chilli powder stuff.
