Man Man Unagi Japanese Restaurant @ DUO

I always wanted to give this restaurant a try because there is a queue outside it even on regular days. When Brenda asked me out for my birthday, I decided that this is the perfect chance for me to give Man Man a chance. (Thank you Brenda!) Honestly, I was pretty excited.

我一直想参观这家餐馆,因为即使在常规日子也有人排队。当Brenda约我庆祝生日时,我觉得这是一个很好的机会。 (谢谢 Brenda!)

On the day that I visited the restaurant, there was no queue. The queue started to form during dinner time. Brenda and I arrived maybe 15 minutes earlier than the dinner crowd. I am happy not to queue. Both of us ordered the unagi and salmon belly rice bowl. Personally, I prefer a mix of meat.

On top of that, this is one of the cheaper options on the menu. The speciality of this restaurant is the Unagi. Hence, the price point of the food here is slightly steep. Moreover, I observed that the restaurant at DUO is somewhat small, I think this may be one of the reasons that contribute to the queue.

在我去餐厅的那天,没有人排队。队列在晚餐时间开始形成。Brenda和我早到15分钟。我很高兴不必排队。我们俩都点了鳗鱼和鲑鱼肚饭。

这是菜单上更便宜的选项之一。这家餐厅的特色菜是鳗鱼。因此,这里的食物价格略高。此外,我观察到DUO的餐厅有点。我认为这可能是导致排队的原因之一。

The uniqueness of the dining experience is that you could enjoy your meal in 3 different ways. Ask the service crew for help if it's your first time dining there. They would suggest that you divide the bowl into quarters so that you could try the 3 different styles and have 1 more portion of your favourite choice.

First, you can try the original version; meaning you could have the rice bowl as it's served to you. I could taste the salmon and unagi, but there's nothing impressive about it. Personally, this option was pretty bland.

用餐体验的独特之处在于您可以通过3种不同的方式享用美食。如果您是第一次在那里用餐,请向服务人员寻求帮助。他们会建议你将碗分成四分之一,这样你就可以尝试3种不同的款式。最后的一份,您可以随配搭。

首先,您可以尝试原味版本。我可以品尝鲑鱼和鳗鱼,但没有什么令人印象深刻的。这个选项非常平淡。

Next, I added in the garnishes and shredded seaweed. This option was better, as the garnishes added an extra crunch and fragrance. I like this.

接下来,我加入了配菜和海藻。这个选项更好,因为配菜增加了香味。我喜欢这个配搭。

For the third part, I added in the broth, which was yummier than the soup. Overall, it looked and tasted like porridge. I would recommend this on days that you feel sick and want something tasty.

对于第三部分,我添加了汤。总的来说,它的外观和味道像粥一样。

It's apparent that I preferred the second method. However, I don't find anything special about the food here. The unagi, which is the star of the dish, tasted pretty average. I don't see the hype. I doubt I would crave for this. Nevertheless, there are some rumours that the branch in Chinatown served better food. Hence, if you wish to try Man Man Unagi, I would encourage you to go to the one in Chinatown.

Comment below and let me know if you have tried this before. Feel free to share the post.

我喜欢第二种配搭。但是,这里的食物没什么特别的。鳗鱼是这间餐厅的明星,但味道相当平均。然而,有传言称唐人街的分店提供更好的食物。因此,如果你想尝试Man Man Unagi,我会鼓励你去唐人街。

如果您之前尝试过,请告诉我你的评价。
