Spur-of-the-moment a friend and I went out for tea recently, and it fair put a smile on my face! 🙂 It has certainly got to go down in the annuls as the strangest meal I’ve ever eaten:
Starter: 2 haddock and a chip mountain
We drove out to Burnt Island and once we had caught a glimpse of the sea, the cravings for fish+chips followed suit.
The portions were definitely double-sized… the girl gave me a funny look when I tried explaining to her we actually we wanted our portions in separate packages. So I shut up and enjoyed both fish and (honest!)most of the chips .
Light entertainment of sea-gull feeding in the intermission.
Main: strawberry haribo – kids in a happy world!
Our cream soda came in an old-fashioned glass bottle with the message on the side “30p if you return me”. I dared my friend to ask for her money. She did, and was refused but more-than-compensated with sweets instead!
Wandered down the high street in the rain, getting our window shopping done.
Pudding: Orange sorbet in an exclusive Romany dining area.
One of our tasks for the evening was to decide on a suitable venue for a return-visit with an esteemed mutual friend. There was a cute-and-tidy little restaurant at the far end that looked like the poshest place in town… that would do, we decided.
Then my side of the dare came out… I was to go in and ask if it was ok for us to just have pudding there-and-then. We were on a budget, but the orange sorbet was just too tempting… 😛
So that’s what we did! The chap was very obliging and kind, and it was pretty delicious.
A highly recommendable excursion! I give it: 5 stars and a cupful of sand.
