For people who care about their food

Menu madness 2

We went for a nice meal out recently. Although the food and drink were certainly enjoyable, we had some unexpected extra entertainment from the menu.

Perusing the wine menu is usually quite interesting, and we’ve read some quite pretentious wine descriptions in our time. But rarely one as bizarre as this:

Makes it sound like some kind of Frisbee™.

How about some nice tasty mushroom soup? Er… exactly how tasty would this be?

Time to think about the main course. Everyone loves chicken, don’t they? What about their young?

We didn’t really fancy the flag marinade. On the other hand, we weren’t sure how much we’d take to the pouggart one either:

Not so keen on kebabs, in the end we went for the good old standard – butter chicken. But even this was the subject of some suspense…

And for variety we thought we’d have something else too. But maybe not the lamb.

Side dishes were easy enough to come up with. You’ve got to have some nice Indian bread. At least we knew there was no danger in choosing this:

And how about some onion rings?

They reminded us of this guy!
