We're in the middle of our seasonal work, most of which means we can eat at home or hit Ming Kee in Warwick. But tonight we've travelled over to Baldock for an extra special performance. This means that I ordered the food in full victorian costume. Did I get funny looks? Probably not as funny as in medieval hat, but funny looks none the less! So the usual was ordered. The result? A usual 8/10.
After a really, really early start on the Saturday morning and playing Christmas carols all day we were starving. We've been on the road for a couple of weeks now and we thought it was about time to go out and have a meal together. Our B&B was on a farm in the middle of no-where so we drove on down and into Newport and into the first chinese. Sweet and sour chicken Hong Kong style with rice. Chicken with ginger and pineapple. It was delicious! Maybe it was because we were in a restaurant or that we were hungry. But the food was delicious! It was expensive, but it always is when you sit in. The chairs were quite low and had a comedy moment of plonking further down than expected. So the score? 8/10. Only 8 because the food should have been wonderful and it was. Yum.
We're down in Southampton on our way from Salford down to the Isle of Wight. We were quite starving after our long drive. Tonight we had the luxury of ordering the food and taking it back up to our hotel room nearby. So we ate with proper seats and a table. I don't think this made the food taste better but it was very tastey indeed. Overall we gave a very respectible 8/10.
