I’m outta here tomorrow for another several weeks off but first…I’m pretty proud of this meal. At the Far East last night, I had Lamb Biryani (lamb and rice) and a beef and rice stir fry accompanied by curried rice salad and a delicious rice pudding for dessert. L was moved to comment “You must really like rice”.
“Actually, no, I’m not a huge fan of it.”
“Why’d you get all that then? There were other choices”.
“But this way every one of my dishes is rice based.”
S, M and A didn’t seem to get it either. They’re all a little odd.
I was, however, quite perplexed by the Far East “Crispy Cake” they had along with the rice pudding on the dessert line. It’s a sweet little crispy treat make with breakfast cereal. Yeah, I know, it should be a bloody Rice Krispie Square…right? Oh no, they can make a goddamn salad out of rice but not a crispy cereal based dessert…they make that out of Special fucking K. That ain’t right. A claimed to like it. I’m not talking to him.
According to our schedule, we should have been eating at the Cambridge tonight. As we gathered for dinner, L decided that that was a good time to tell us “The Cambridge is closed for renovations”. “What?”, I replied “It can’t be. We have to eat there tonight”. “I bloody well told you it was going to be closed”, L pointed out defensively. “Yeah, but I assumed they’d wait until I’d left. We have a schedule!” Anyway, a lot of the mayhem my schedule was intended to alleviate ensued. We ended up at the Lux. I reluctantly tolerated this deviation from plan as the Lux is of the same type (Euro) as Cambridge according to the spreadsheet. However, A, S and M added to my discomfiture but not sitting at one of the tables on the immediate right as we always do. Despite the schedule and seating chaos, the pork chops were excellent and L and S both raved about the cheese and onion salad.

Stupid question, Mick. You’ve obviously never been to KAF.
