Anyways, this was our last day of vacation, and it didn't take much convincing to get everyone to agree to go ahead with Grub Club. Today it was my turn to pick a restaurant, and I went for a new Italian place on Beatles Street that I'd heard about on UB Foodies - Tendo. From the outside, it's not much to look at - a brown facade with a very small sign with the name on it (luckily the directions left on the Foodies were specific or I would have had my work cut out for me on my reconnaissance).
The inside, however, had a nice ambiance - warm, low lighting and dark colors. It's not a huge restaurant (with not-huge chairs that my ass just barely managed to squeeze into). More to the point, it came with a carb overload. I've never been into the long crunchy breadsticks, and these were pretty much par for the course, but the little bread knots were brushed with olive oil and white wine (which probably cooked out) and were hard to stop eating.
Especially when more and more dishes kept coming out, none of which were my penne arabbiata. As I said, the dishes were small ("Japan-sized," as Champ put it) so the fact that I ate waaaay too much bread kind of worked itself out, and I didn't go home starving (thankfully, since Engrish bought me a 6-pack of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups).
