Tag: <span>Cafe Mao</span>

Blackfriars, Cafe Mao (for food, again!), Del Monica’s to catch up with everyone else even though they weren’t there, Polo Lounge then Arte.

A few Guinness (one for Peter), some Miller, Carlsberg, Southern Comfort… ooyyyyy. At least there were no champagne cocktails this time.

Ohh and of course I pulled, in the Polo Lounge. He wasn’t really my type though…

Two observations:
1. Isn’t the dawn lovely.
2. It’s very bright today.

I love Guinness, not mad keen on the after effects of 10 pints of the stuff mind you. Twas a good night last night, a couple of drinks after work ended up being several with Louise joining me in Glasgow and our mate Stuart coming out to play as well. A few beers, some Nasi Goreng from Cafe Mao (we really MUST try somewhere else someday) and then back to Stuart’s to watch the BB eviction that he had recorded on his fancy schmancy Sky+ box (jealous? me?). Alan arrived shortly after us which was an added bonus as the poor dear is normally working, such are the perils of being a bar manager.

Tonight it’s Alex and Rebecca’s housewarming party which should be good. Here’s hoping Louise can rid herself of the cold which has reared it’s head again today – mind you getting in at 3a.m. probably didn’t help. In saying that I’m still decidedly fuzzy myself, and I’ve just noticed a tickle in the back of my throat.

You know, flooring the throttle and pulling out across me two lanes in front of me is scary enough. More so when it’s a minibus full of kids. Don’t make things worse by tailgating me to the end of the road. Asshole. Shouldn’t there be speed/acceleration limiters on minibuses?


Friday Five
1. What is your favorite restaurant and why?
Hmmmm probably Cafe Mao. Food was excellent but more because of the night it fell into to.

2. What fast food restaurant are you partial to?
None/Any. Fast food is a convenience so the taste is a secondary consideration – obviously or I wouldn’t be eating fast food!

3. What are your standards and rules for tipping?
Depends on the service and standards of the restaurant. We don’t have the social expectation that a tip will always be left, unlike America. Typically 10% of the bill or so, but that’s only a rough guideline. I HAVE left without tipping a couple of times but as I was leaving midway through the main course I thought that’d be OK.

4. Do you usually order an appetizer and/or dessert?
Depends when we are eating, if it’s an occasion meal, then usually both. A casual dinner, usually a starter. A pig out dinner both twice!!

5. What do you usually order to drink at a restaurant?
If I’m not driving, wine or beer, depends on the food. Ohh and MUST have cold non-sparkling water. If I’m driving Diet Pepsi.
