When will I learn?

We didn't quite make it to our favourite Thai restaurant on Friday night. We were lured into our local trendy bistro by the sight of a rare empty table and the memories of some past yummy meals. This particular evening ended up being a bit of a disappointment unfortunately. That's my meal in the photo above. You're looking at a roasted duck leg, red cabbage and duck spring rolls over a buttery spaghetti squash and some rapini on the side. When we arrived at the restaurant we were told we could have the available table as long as we left in time for the reservation that was coming in. They told us we had an hour and a half to eat. No problem.
It took over 45 minutes to get our meals and mine was cold. The duck tasted great, it was moist and flavourful and the spring rolls were delicious, I love pickled cabbage and it was perfect with the duck but, it was cold and a little oily. The spaghetti squash was pretty bland and the rapini was bitter. You know, nothing was really bad it just wasn't really as good as it should have been. Superman had an amazing seafood stew with a saffron base and little filo parcels with shrimp and salmon pate inside. His was hot and tasty.
After being told we only had time for a quick dessert (?) We ended the meal with a gorgonzola creme with stewed figs and pear and crustini. Delicious.
No, I didn't complain about my meal, it still tasted pretty good, I was hungry and I felt like we were just lucky to have a table, but...
The rest of the night kind of sucked because I ended up with a tummy ache and a case of the poops. Shitty.
Next time it's tried and true Thai.

Oh no! Sorry you had a not-so-great night and I hope your tummy is feeling better.
(45 minutes is a long time to wait for food- I wouldn't have been very happy about that!!!)
