The Food continued…
The oysters were perfection, the calamari was standard, the chicken wings were nice, Mum only ate a few and I finished them at home a couple of days later, still delicious. The zucchini flowers are always a favourite and Mum had never tried them – this is now a favourite of hers to enjoy!
Mike’s main won the dish of the day, the Sri Lankan curry looked fabulous, so good in fact it made mum angry when Mike spilled it on his shirt – and I have now looked at adult bibs hahaha. Mike was recovering from a flu so didn’t get to try it. Contagion had passed – he wasn’t spreading plague.
I loved the Prawn Linguini, but there was a texture in the gremolata I didn’t like, it was like a crispy plant-based item to chew on, and it was out of place with the meal, for me. But the garlic levels were perfect and the six large prawns were generous. I left a small bit of pasta and the sauce in the bowl and the waiters were concerned I didn’t like it. No point in unnecessary carb loading haha
I had the passionfruit cocktail and loved it, Mum had another that she wasn’t too enamoured by, for the life of me I can’t recall what it was. Mike had the beer which he always likes.
The affogatos were almost perfect, Mike and I will always order this if available – but, something I have never said before, the ice cream could be less, it felt like three scoops where two would have done, you don’t want to dilute the coffee and Frangelico too much!
