So I haven’t been eating well recently so we thought maybe I should give in to some of my cravings so I will eat a lot. Wrong! I made a short list of things/restos I wanna eat/in.. here’s what happened the past few days:
- Uncle Moe’s – I wanted ox brain, beef shawarma, chicken kebab.. but we kinda ordered other stuff instead of our usual… CMF had the set with beef and chicken kebab (his usual is chicken curry but he will sweat a lot from it so he didn’t go for it). I had what was on the poster – cheesy beef keema shawarma! Woot woot! And of course, ox brain with a lot of garlic sauce! Hurray! That. Was. Awesome. I love you Uncle Moe. Whoever you are!
- Cyma – we usually go for spinach artichoke, roka salata, hirini brizola (the marvelous pork chops!! with yemistes. This time, we ordered watercress salad, moussaka and Greek clams pasta. I likey. I like it a lot!! I ate well!
- Viet Place owned by CMF’s friend… I don’t wanna say the name coz there’s a little bit of bad vibes to it. Anyway, we always order pomelo salad, spring rolls and pho… but this time, after going through the menu with the super nice server, we ordered fried prawn rolls, prawn wraps and lemongrass pork. She kept on pushing the salt and pepper fish, but we weren’t in the mood for s&p. She kept on pushing noodles too, but hello, will I really make noodles my viand? So we asked about pork dishes and she suggested lemongrass pork. There was even a photo of it, and she showed it to us. So here they came, prawn wraps, fried prawn rolls. Yum. But not as super yum as I expected. Then, came our special fried rice and lemongrass chicken. Wait what? We told her we didn’t order chicken. She said we ordered chicken and she just left. What the frack? This is the annoying and tough part when you know the owner. The whole time CMF was apologizing to me and offered to make me himay. That’s not the point. I have this weird thing that I don’t eat chicken with skin if it’s not fried. Simply because I don’t feel comfy eating the chicken skin in its kinda rubbery form. It’s uncooked to me. So I was really pissed. We usually order a lot of food because we can always take them home and not cook as much at home. The thought of that chicken for the next meal at home really annoyed me. And it’s not cheap ha! After finishing the prawn wrap and rolls, I asked CMF to do something about it because I’m really pissed. I know where in the menu the photo is, she was the one who pointed it out to us. CMF called a server and asked for our server. Our server came and he nicely asked to do something about it because we really didn’t order chicken. She just took the food and CMF was the one who apolgized. How strange this world is. So anyway, out came the lemongrass pork after 7 minutes or so. That pretty much ruined my meal. Ugh.
I have a fully stocked freezer again so I can cook stuff that we’re used to again haha no more dining out as much… need to lessen it!
