This restaurant was on our regular rotation of places to eat with work buddies. Haven't gone there for a while because the last time we went, the normally grouchy lady (I'm being kind here) was having a really bad day and service was horrific, she practically threw our plates on the table and was very rude when taking our order. She wasn't there today but in a weird way, I kinda like her direct local manner. Food is very good but getting pricey and average portions. Haven't tried it but heard their oxtail soup is good.

(Ed's Note: No idea who last week's winnah was for kako mochi's Oregon game, but congrats whoevah you wuz! 😛 I'll update thangs for next week Wednesday, aftah I return. hemmz was generous enough to provide 2 pict-chaz this week so I took the liberty of "flashing" the second image in there for your viewing pleasure 8) )

Points for...
* Name of Location: 1 point
* Object hanging above cash register (not pictured): 1/2 point
* Name of enka singer we were listening to on the jukebox: 1 point

    @hemajang ... ah!!! ... I know where that is ... I know L&L right next door too ... and I remember going to many of the small shops there ... except Jane's ... go figure?!! ... I must have have gone there at some point ...

    ... eh ... I just viewed the street view on Google Maps ... no wonder ... da sign only says "SAIMIN" ... on da window is the name Jane's Fountain ... I guess I nevah pay attention before!!! ...


  2. rayboyjr:

    @Rosie ... tanks for the pics ... too bad, though ... no more points to give away ... maybe you gotta sweet talk hemajang ... with your charm and grace ... 😀 ... go getum' Rosie!!! ...


  3. rayboyjr:

    @hemajang ... oh!!! ... I vaguely remember used to have Young's Fish Market there too ... the one that is in City Square now ... oh boy, I think that was like 15 years ago ... when they moved ... can't remember ...


  4. hemajang:

    ...still get 1/2 point for what prominent object above cash register, hint on #31 and #41 plus Rosie's revealing photo (no, not of her).

    @hemaz - eh! Thanks for the YouTube link, that lady can sing!


  12. kuya.d:

    Bull horns


  13. hemajang:

    Bull horns! get em kuya.d! Yeah, Rosie's photo can see the bull horns on the upper left, get the big picture with big kanji over it. You cannot see the old cash register, view blocked by the coke machine and column.

    Mr. Ed, final points are:

    Coconut Willy - 1 point for correct location: Jane's Fountain in Liliha
    S-Ticket - 1 point for enka singer: Hibari Misora, although he kinda threw off a bunch of names...but still count, yeah?
    kuya-d - 1/2 point for naming object above cash register: Bull Horns

    Mahaloz to everyone for playing...was fun. Eh, Mr. Ed, when you on vacation again?


  14. Coconut Willy:

    That was a lucky guess. I have been in that place once and don't really remember the surroundings.

    Thanks for moderating.


  15. Chicken Grease:

    Hemajang, The Grease is no good at these, but, just wanted to tell ya', GOOD JOB, man . . . register DOES remind me of a Palace Saimin eatery or whatnot. Great "where is . . ." today.

    Take care!


  16. kuya.d:

    @hemaz - woohaah! Mahalo.

    @Rosie - thanks for the picture kokua!
