Hey, Basil. Do you have any good restaurant to suggest?
I mean the sort of places where the mains are
around 50 bucks,
the atmosphere is a mixture of amatory and artsy,
the environment has to be tidy,
and of course the food has to be absolutely amazing. I'm
going to have a dinner with Rosalia tonight. Come on, give
me some great ideas! I'm in a hurry.
So you're looking for a restaurant which is romantic and
clean, and its food is cheap and delicious. I know one place
which definitely fits your criteria.
It provides seasonal vegetables
and finest rump steaks fused
with an exotic Asian
Awesome! Where is it?
Just cook on your own! You can find some finest steaks in
a supermarket. Just marinate the
steaks in red wine and
season with some garlic or herbs;
then you'll get a mouthwatering steak.
Then you can light up some candles to feature a romantic ambiance in
your small dinning room.
Give me a break! Come on, big
chef, I can't cook, and I've
got no time now!
Ok. Well, there's a bistro in
my neighbourhood. There's one time I went there and
ordered a mocha-caramel Latte
and a raspberry pudding.
The staffs there were absolutely delightful. They're so attentive,
as if I've always been there for my morning coffee every
day. So I felt like a pampered VIP.
Then when the latte is served, I noticed that the foam was
a bit unusual because it wasn't creamy white. It's just too
transparent. The latte was like covered with tiny bubbles.
Then when I took it close to my nose to smell it, I could
smell something like dishwashing detergent.
So then I asked one of the waitresses what in the latte
was. And she said coffee, milk and caramel syrup, with a
delightful yet teasing face
as if I were asking for their secret recipe.
Well then, what's in the latte actually?
I don't know. Some kind of detergent probably. I asked
the waitress to smell it, then she replied me with an
official saying "Maybe it's because
of the new dishwashing machine. You know new machines always
have unpleasant odor."
Then they wanted to give me another cup of latte, but I rejected
and left without complaining. But I definitely won't be back
there in a hurry. God knows what I'll find in my coffee next
So, it's not a good place to go.
No, absolutely not a choice.
And there is another time. A friend and I went to a local
restaurant in my neighbourhood. We were so starving then,
and really wanted to pig
out a big meal. But
the time was not right, so the restaurant wasn't providing
any mains. So we ordered a chicken Caesar
salad and a smoked chicken
salad instead. Then we waited for almost half an hour. Do
you believe that!!! 30 minutes, just for a meal which had
been obviously left in a fridge for hours. What's more unbelievable
was that the meals were nothing short of hilarious. Our chicken
salad barely had any chicken on it, but had quite a few brown lettuce,
and it even was garnished with soggy stale croutons and
sugar-coated peanuts! Come on,
is that a new strategy to scare away customers? You don't
need sugar coated peanuts, lousy service will do.
So, you don't suggest this one.
No, not this one either; unless you want to taste some hilarious
meals. And last week, I went to a restaurant which.......
Hold..hold on a second! Don't you think it would be more
helpful if you just tell me which specific restaurants are
I'm helping you narrow down your choices!
Ok, anyway, I'll google them on the Internet. I'd better
go now, it's almost 5. Bye!
Ok, bye. But hey...hey, don't go to the Italian restaurant
on King William Road. It's.....
Yeah, yeah, I'll catch ya tomorrow. (Lucio replied reluctantly
and left in quite a hurry!!)
