We did something unusual for us on Thursday night....we went out for dinner to a rather poncey flash restaurant called King of Snake.....so poncey flash, we weren't even sure they'd let us in!!!
I'm not especially comfortable at fancy, fashionable places.They tend to view drunken rolling about on the floor antics with distaste.
We usually prefer small, reasonably priced suburban restaurants, our current favourite being Hammersley's Thai around the corner; despite the weird name, it currently serves what we think is the best Thai in town!
An old friend was in town, and another friend had arranged the dinner in her honour, so I threw on my new optical delusional frock and flounced on into the city!
Feck me, the place was chocka (that means full, or packed in Kiwi lingo!) with noisy punters, all of whom, it seemed, had to have a good gawk as we walked in....I was duly admired, therefore I deemed the place worthy of my presence...........!!!
It took frigging ages to get drinks, so frigging long I only managed two all night...and the meals also took forever to arrive......... but the friendly staff and the incredible meals we finally received made up for it!
