FIRST IMPRESSION
Gen:
“He welcomed me with a nice smile, which was a good start. I noticed how tall he was. I don't know many people a head taller than me so that caught my attention.”
Alexander:
“My first impression of her was that she’s nice and quite innocent. There wasn’t an instantaneous romantic attraction, which I was nervously hoping for.”

CHEMISTRY
Gen: “I'm terrified of having awkward moments so I tried to fill the dead air as much as I could, but I think that may have made it more awkward.”
Alexander:
“The conversation flowed, but there wasn’t much chemistry. At one point, she even said that she was the polar opposite of what I described my ideal date to be.”

AWKWARD MOMENT
Gen: “After dinner, we went for an awkward hug and he said goodbye before quickly going to the toilet by the restaurant’s exit, leaving me there dumbfounded. I wasn't sure how to react, so I just left the restaurant by myself.”
Alexander: “When she started singing a nursery rhyme on the lines of 'wag, wag, wag your tail...,' before we were about to be served some wagyu beef strips.”

AFTERWARDS
Gen:
“After the date, I opted to just go home and he didn't seem to mind so we went our separate ways.”
Alexander: “We politely said our goodbyes and went our separate ways.”

THE VERDICT
Gen:
♥♥♥ “I think it was a pleasant evening. I enjoyed talking to him, hearing about his adventures. The food was amazing so the date wasn’t bad at all.”
Alexander: ♥♥♥ “I think we both gathered that there wasn’t much romantic chemistry early on and were happy enough to just have a pleasant dinner and chat. She’s a lovely girl and I wish her all the [luck] in finding the right match.”

The Hot Spot

Ta-ke
  • Restaurants
  • Japanese
  • Causeway Bay

Gen: “The staff were so accommodating and the food was fantastic, especially the wagyu. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who loves Japanese food with amazing service.”

Alexander: “The food was great and sitting in front of the teppanyaki station was a nice experience. The 'wag, wag, wag'-yu was particularly memorable, both in taste and the comedic aspect it brought to the evening.”
