Mrs Sane’s cousin owns a posh restaurant in Chester (Micheal Owen goes there from time to time) so we went for a meal today.
It’s only a small restaurant – 40 odd seats – but at £16 for 3 courses of some of the best food I’ve eaten (and believe me, I’ve eaten a lot of food) I can’t praise it enough. It’s worth going if only for the home-made ice cream which knocks the socks off Häagen Dazs and lets be honest, that’s not something that can be said very often.
We had a bit of excitement between the main course and dessert when the oven set on fire. Mrs Sane said “I’m sure there’s something on fire in the kitchen” (you can see into the kitchen from the restaurant) and seconds later the chef ran up the stairs and back down again with a fire extinguisher. When he opened the oven door the flames shot out a good 7 or 8 foot. Most impressive. It was the oil for the Yorkshire Puddings that did it apparently. 😆
