In the spirit of christmas and seasonal goodwill, I would say nothing if asked to describe my feelings toward our lunch experience. But because I feel obliged to warn the rest of the foodie community of the evil that is pasta de waraku, i consider this a good deed done for the holidays. To say that the pasta we ate was undercooked and horrendously prepared was an understatement.
For a Japanese fusion restaurant once thought to be the cornerstone for dining at Central, our three o’ clock sojourn for an unfortunately late lunch was met upon by further delay after ordering an aglio olio and a pasta with pork chop for my partner. After all, you think, how long could one take to prepare plain noodles with garlic and chili slices when we were one of two groups of customers left in the restaurant? I hurried the staff along to the greatest mistake committed in possibly all of December. The aglio olio arrived caked in so much chili padi and dried chili it would have taken a volcano not to feel the heat. The dish, despite picking off the excess spice, was painfully inedible and a punishment from the kitchen for my rebuke at the slowness of things. It was close to four p.m. already. I had not eaten all day and was pressed to move on to my next engagement. So the phrase "to suck it up" seemed especially poignant. My partner fared not much better with his plate of pasta which he complained was "hard and not properly cooked".
I realise one can sacrifice quality and food safety for a bit of rush after conventional lunch hours. You could say I asked for it but I paid my dues over and above what i think any difficult customer could deserve though I firmly suspect no human should ever be subjected to similar torture.
