More restaurants should reconsider their choice of chairs! :)
This time the restaurant we were going to was just around the corner from our hostel and we did manage to locate the place at once. No wrong alleys, no map searching, we just knew! The place looked quite fancy, but luckily there was no dress code or anything. The interior was beautiful; a variety of lounge chairs, large tables, but also small ones with normal wooden stairs, chandeliers and a fireplace (right next to our table), where two people, who were probably happily in love, were enjoying a romantic dinner in two huge armchairs…
The friends from friends arrived shortly after we did and had just experienced a terrible journey in the city`s tube system. Apparently some of the lines had been closed for the night and they had to change tubes almost every other stop…To make it even worse, the tube stations were so crowded that they had to squeeze their way into the incredibly hot tubes…oh well, at least they managed to arrive and because of the mess at the tube stations we decided not to go to the fireworks anyway, so we had all the time of the world.
Okay, what are your first thoughts on what the menu in such a place would look like? Probably not simple beef burgers with fries…well that is exactly what I ordered and enjoyed! Even though they were way to big and I could not finish more than half of the burger, the taste was fine and exactly what I craved for after walking through the city all day! Add a glass of wine, good company and a lot of English conversation and you`ll have my night. I enjoyed it a lot and again was very pleased to practise my English conversation skills. After dinner (after a very delicious crème brulee) we headed to a nearby `pub` or menza-like bar where we had a couple of drinks till just before closing time. The others had to travel all the way back to the other side of the city, which would probably take like 2 hours or so and I was tired as well, so didn`t mind going backto our dorm a little early.
