Reviewing food for the foreigners, without all the fluff.

I just had a quick lunch at the Chinese-owned Anata restaurant down Anspachlaan for the first time today after wanting to try it for some time, and it did not disappoint.  If you aren’t looking for perfect food, but just want a reliably good, fast, and substantial meal for not too many euros, this is the place.

When we got there, the hostess, though brusque, was nice and seated us away from the door of the small place when we asked, even if we were two people sitting at a table for four.  Service was quicker than expected, they spoke our language, and they even gave us a new drinking glass when we asked for one, without any of the guff that you might expect in other places.  Granted, we had to get a new glass because the old one had an odorous quality reminiscent of fish, but keep everything in perspective here.  All things considered:  not bad.

I had the Katsudon hot bowl of rice with fried pork and egg, with vegetables (~€10).  In the cold of the day, when I was hungry after the gym, it really was pretty good.  I got it fast and was satisfied, though I would have liked more meat.  I would go again, and next time I’ll have the courage to try the sushi in the bento boxes.
