Dining Out

Two and half Lemon, Malta - Chris Briffa Architects


Jamie Hayon - La Terraza del Casino











Lan Hotel, Beijing - Philippe Starck

The the other day was D and my 4th year anniversary so he took me to a restaurant up the coast in a private living estate called UMAMI. The decor was fresh, clean and modern and I just loved the location, surrounded by trees and green hills (would have taken photo's but camera batteries are dead :(
I choked a little when I saw the prices it was by far the most expensive meal I had ever had. We were optimistic though and looked forward to a culinary delight...well not only where they tiny portions but the food was ok and I would even go as far to say bland!!!
The experience was mediocre I just think if you are charging by the left arm you should make your guests feel like royalty ??? Especially since there were only two tables seated ??
We came away feeling a little like the emperor with no clothes. To cheer me up I have been collecting restaurant images...hey it works for me.
We are going attempt a retake and go to Durban's best restaurant (and has been for years) 9Th Avenue Bistro. Will let you know how it goes.
