3rd November 2010
We decide to eat dinner in the hotel restaurant rather than set up our own kitchen. (There is enough money left in the kittie.)
We are told that all beef, pork and chicken dishes plus kingfish are available, but many of us settle for steak.
We specifiy the way we would like it cooked. I want mine „medium“, AH prefers his „medium to well done“ and someone else wants his „rare to medium.“) And then there are different sauces to choose from. I want the mushroom and red wine sauce rather than a pepper sauce.
We place our order at 8pm. Soon there are promising sounds coming out of the kitchen (the bang, bang, bang of meat being tenderized), followed by the appetizing smell of fried onions.
Our food arrives 2 hours later. All steaks are cooked well done and slathered with the same sauce (pepper I presume).
I guess none of our instructions meant anything to the chef...
