Update on ASEAN

This re-review is an F&T first and more in the nature of a mini post. I'm sure you all remember my glowing review of ASEAN (If you don't: Read This). Well fuelled on that (and a 3:1 vote in which I was the minority) Shan, Pri, KK and me headed there. The place has shifted across the road from where it used to be. Unfortunately, that's not the only thing that's changed. The place is stifling beyond description. There are no windows, the fans and AC's don't work. The place also smells musty, like unused winter clothes. Since it was an especially hot afternoon, this didn't help at all The menu has shrunk (much like how I wish my waistline would). It's half its earlier size and the sea food section seems to have taken a particular hit. Predictably, the prices have gone up too. I can't comment on the quality of food since apprehensive about these changes, we decided to cut our losses and head over to Number 70 (guess whose initial suggestion it was).

This post is to tell you two things: a) The new ASEAN might not be as good b) Democracy is highly overrated

Lol, though your vote against ASEAN was prompted less by premonition, and more by the desire to, well...
Also, who was the first to suggest that you write an update on ASEAN??

Just so you know, the quality of the food has gone down drastically as well. :-(
