My colleague on the other hand was busily reading the menu. Wonder why when she had already beforehand insisted that we must try the pork knuckles? Women? Don't they are a confused lot? I know. Anyway, instead of I too staring at the menu, I helped out. I didn't want to waste time because we have to be back at the office within the next hour. We ordered.
Drinks arrived within a jiffy, we sipped into the Cranberry Juice and Orange Juice. Ah! So lovely on this burning hot day, both the juices kicked in a cooling and sensation burst down our throat. While sipping in, we also took a good look at the ambiance.
Rustic, modern and spacious, with option of seating outside, which I believe is where the happy hour crowd will be later. For some of them, night will never end. Boozy night by the way is a long night for those who don't want to go home, for whatever reason is may be. I was in the same category those days, but its a different story all together these days. Now, almost an hour of await for food, also after noticing that customers who walked in after us were already tucking into their meal, I tried, a couple of times to ask, the waiters came by but the standard answer from each of them was "on the way" madam. On the way for the last 30 minutes? I had to, I didn't have a choice but behave like a diva.
Finally, we were told that knuckles will take an hour. Oh lord! Oh god god! Why were we not told earlier? We too overlooked this fact, which has been stated in the menu. Did we have any other choice? You are right, no. To keep us calm, thank you to the staff for serving us fries, alongside three types of dips. We gawked the thick potato bacons, polished off every bit and then, tadaa, the sight of pork knuckles.
