Nothing exciting to report food-wise yesterday, but today's paid-for-by-work food was dinner at Meccah Bah at Darling Harbour (https://meccabah.sydney/functions-and-events/).
Because there were 39 of us all up (!) we did the $79 set menu. The starters were the bread and trio of tips, falafels, lamb sigara boureks, and North African meatballs, we could choose which main we wanted (I got the spiced halloumi pizza) and then we got a selection of desserts to share.
The whole meal was absolutely incredible and I am stuffed to the gills right now. I also had my first margarita because several people expressed surprised that I'd not had one before. It was... fine, but definitely reinforced my stance of not paying for cocktails if I'm paying for it because MAN are they not worth it. 😛
@yayKM was in the office today and stayed back late, I was all excited to treat myself to some Indian for dinner until I went to order it and remembered that they're closed on Tuesday. 😤
So plan B: pizza and garlic bread (and enough of it that I'm also having it for lunch tomorrow).
And then we went out for Italian!
We WERE going to go for Thai and had made a booking, but Kristina got a very apologetic phone call this afternoon saying that they had to close the whole restaurant down because something had gone wrong in the kitchen and they were going to be closed for like a week because the whole floor needed to be taken up.
We'd been to this Italian place before MANY years ago but had zero memory of how it was. Turns out, really good! They had a brownie tiramisu for dessert that I really wanted to try but by the time I finished the pizza I was STUFFED. And this was just the medium pizza, not even the large one.
Fuck yesssss, Kristina and I are having a date night in tonight. Dinner was wings and pizza, and I brought the Xbox 360 out of storage and we're playing Guitar Hero! 🤘🏻
Unfortunately my strum bar is wonky and only registers when you're strumming _up_ rather than down, which makes it slightly awkward to play. I'm doing it with my finger finger rather than thumb so I feel like I'm playing a bass guitar.
