A very disappointing dinner at Jadis

The cheese plate was good and their chocolate soufflé was not bad...those are the only two "good" things I can say about our dinner at Jadis. We're certainly not going back.

For starters, we both had what were basically tempura battered squid accompanied by onion rings. It wasn't terribly bad but they weren't much better than what I could get for $3 from a supermarket deli anywhere in Japan. It was that boring and lazy. The onion rings by the way were cold and soggy as in they must had been sitting around for at least a couple of hours.

For the main course, we had two different dishes of white fish. Again, nothing offensive but nothing inspiring either. Texture felt odd and flavors just didn't come together.

Service was rushed and bordering on pretty rude.

For the rest of the week, we went to the market everyday and prepared 3 (ok, more like 5) meals a day at home. Though I'm not a very good cook, it was hard to eat badly given all the wonderful ingredients. :)
