It's the long weekend and I finally finished a 3-week gig in town so it's to dinner at Greenwood. A nice, quaint little place that's pretty much inaccessible unless you drive or teleport. It's my second time there, first time was with the guys a.k.a. The Fellowship.
This time it was with the nice folks from the U.K. trip. First stop was the famous Lana Cakes shop. Moist and rich chochy goodness. What else can I say? Too bad you can only get it there and not anywhere else on the island.
Then it's dinner at the Fish Market. First time there for all of us so we took the two hot and cold seafood platters. Not a bad choice, for the cold platter which arrived first, we had half a lobster, mussels, tuna salad, oysters among others. I only thought the lobster was kinda bland, tasteless like.
Same with the other half of the lobster in the hot platter below, just wasn't that tasty. The rest of the hot platter was good. The baked oysters, calamari, scallops and the rest, all pleasantly satisfying.
I wouldn't mind going there again. The row of restaurants that Fish Market and Lana Cakes are housed was quite empty during dinner but there was another row at the other end of the road that was way more 'happening'. Anyone knows what's good there? I think there's an Italian joint that was real crowded.
Ok, a little something I found that I thought was funny and weird, so wanna share it here. Heh. I posted some of these Japanese surveys before and here's another interesting one on Office Romances. Hehe. Only if you like to eat where you shit, dip your pen in the company ink, well, you know what I mean. Feel free to leave a comment or personal story! <^;^>
