Lunch @ Edogawa Teppanyaki, Central
While the dude was strapping us into our seats in the open-air steel capsule, FW & I started having "lunatic's remorse" (think of buyer's remorse but tie it to an act of insanity) but having come this far so we decided to go through with it. "It's now or never!"
This is definitely not for the faint-hearted or weak-of-stomach (don't do this on a full tummy). The cords were tightened and we were poised for release. When released, the G-force of being catapulted 60 metres up into the air at about 200 km/hour, was quite a rush. We were silent for those few seconds, till the capsule started twirling at the top and we found ourselves rotating BUT mostly hanging face down to the ground (at about 55 metres up in the air). Yikes!!! We started squealing "Omigawd!" however, realising we were going to be stuck there for a while as the ride takes about 5 minutes, we started giggling incessantly and enjoying the view from above. This is IMHO worth a try (unless you have health conditions that forbid such activities).
A la Carte (200g portion) @ S$18.80
PS: This place plays traditional Japanese music (Kabuki from the Edo period), which can take a little getting used to. Whilst its true to its name in turns of music, the staff are mostly PRC so you would have to order mostly in Mandarin (or point to the menu).
