- Eating out
Eating on your own or with company?
On my own then perhaps a Thai where they sit you down in rows. I’d feel less self conscious.
If a couple then I’m into Lebanese/Turkish at the momnent and fits in nicely with the warm weather. Plus you usually have nice sharing platters of olives, stuffed vine leaves, falafel etcPosted 4 years agoBigButSlimmerBlokeMember
Had some amazing meals out in Venice last year.
eh? whereabouts? IME eating in Venice is expensive and poor.
Anyway, all depends on mood – right now a nice thin and crispy pizza with some cheap red wine would work for me – Pizza Gina Sorbillo would do nicely.
For the Apple fanbois
mmmmmm pizza, followed by ice cream from Gay Odin.Posted 4 years agolemonysamMember
French, specifically Savoyard, specifically here: http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Hotel_Review-g616133-d1726534-Reviews-or10-La_Clef_du_Temps-Le_Grand_Bornand_Haute_Savoie_Rhone_Alpes.htmlPosted 4 years agoBigJohnSubscriber
Spanish for me.
A proper old style stand-up tapas joint.
That lovely bellota ham that tastes like bacon flavoured toffee, the pork tenderloin cooked rare, the tomatoes with roquefort sauce, artichoke hearts with scrambled egg, the chicken, clam chorizo & scallop paella, the garlic prawns, the griddled asparagus, the grilled lamb kidneys, all washed down with a few glasses of Tio Fino…
…ooh hang on, isn’t that the menu at my birthday party at home on Saturday… Oh so it is. 😀Posted 4 years agoTom BMember
Yep Venice has a terrible rep….we stayed in Cannareggio which is the furthest place possible from St Marks Square. Had an excellent fish meal at a place called Alla Bacca and an even better meal the following night but can’t remember what it was called. They were both closed on the Monday that we were their-as are all good restaurants as there is no fish market that day. Had a couple of expensive plates of disgusting mess though too.
Any recommendations for decent places to eat in Paris that don’t require a remortgage beforehand?Posted 4 years agocrikeyMember
I’d go Middle Eastern; went in a lovely Lebanese restaurant in Gent with my Dad the last time he travelled anywhere, and it was so good we went back for another night, with the full shisha and pidgin French conversation with the owner ’til the small hours.
Like Mexican too, but more of a Tex-Mex than deep authentic Mexican.
I don’t like fancy food, and tend to go for ‘peasant food’ with the rough edges smoothed off, or the head cut off…Posted 4 years ago

I’m talking about the Indian restaurants in the Basque country (and the Italian ones etc). I’m no great cook, I’m sure the Indian chefs are just catering to the local taste. (which is to be scared of any spice)
I live near Bilbao.
If you start swimming now, you just might make it. 😀
Bet the seafood’s a bit special.Posted 4 years ago
