Foods, Sightseeing, and Experience in Tsukuba, JAPAN
Going to drink together is good opportunity to make relationship closer. We can choose our favorite one from Japanese restaurants or bars for the purpose. Nice drinks and meals help people enjoy talking about interesting things, private things, and sometimes complaints about their works.
I have noticed tablets equipped at each table in some restaurants and bars these days. I was able to order meals and beverages to kitchen staffs using it without calling any staffs. Unless you misused it, you could get your order rightly. After I ordered, waiter or waitress brought it to me. Absolutely, they were human, not robots. I think that it is convenient if the restaurant is crowded with visitors because any waiter will not come to our table quickly after we call him. The tablet can tell us how much we will pay for our orders if we want to check.
If you made your reservation for a drinking party in advance, a appetizer (Otoshi or Tsukidashi in Japanese) and a damp washcloth (Oshibori) will be placed for each person before people take their seats. You can see a clean damp washcloth packed in plastic bag in the picture below. I believe that the restaurant asked other company to prepare the washcloth that was already sterilized. The service let us feel comfortable and being welcome by the restaurant. Do you have any faovite point in services of restaurants or bars those you often visit?
