A former class of mine have kindly offered to take me out for dinner. Here are the criteria:
[ul][li]Not too expensive. A few hundred for a meal, I’d say.[/li]
[li]Not too deathly quiet. There will be eight of us, and while they won’t be dancing on the table, they do like to have a bit of a laugh.[/li]
[li]Reliable. I don’t want them to lose our reservation or bring someone’s starter after someone else has finished the meal.[/li]
[li]A little exotic. Exotic, that is, for local people who don’t often eat foreign food. So it could be a decent burger joint, a middle-eastern type place, or anywhere else that’s not regular Taiwanese or Chinese fare.[/li]
[li]Near the Blue line.[/li][/ul]Any ideas? Forker’s might be alright- anyone know if their booking system actually works and eight people could sit down at the time they booked and get food reasonably soon?
