Most Embarrasing Meal in Bangalore

Lion pointed out that if all I ate was hotel food, sure everything would be more expensive. So, setting aside the local stalls that I was informed of 80% chance of getting diarrhea, let me blog about one time where i had the most embarrassing meal in Bangalore.

One day I was craving for Italian food; so I went to a decent shop. The appearance looked like a café than a restaurant where some people dressed very casually.

So, I went in sit down and had a look at the menu, and lost my appetite straight! Everything was 3-digit rupee! I stared at the menu for a long while, trying to decide what to ordered. The menu was in Italian with small English description.

Trying not to look stupid, I looked at the soup category picked the cheapest one and same for pasta. For drinks I ordered Ice Lemon tea.

Lemon tea was the first to arrive. It tasted okay, but what I did not understand was how come there was a leaf over there. Maybe it was for decoration, a way to make the ice lemon tea less ‘lemon-tea looking’.

Next, the soup arrived. Together with it was a cake, or should I say looked like a cake, smell like a cake but did not taste like cake. The soup was good but a bit salty so I drank it with the cake-like thing, and still tasted salty.

Finishing the soup, it was time for my pasta. The restaurant was called Spaghetti Kitchen – The Italian way. So I was really eager to taste how good the pasta would be. Even took a photo of myself while waiting for the main course.

When the waiter placed down my pasta, I was shocked!

5 dumplings in butter sauce? Trying to make it worth every rupee I was chewing as long as I could for each dumpling. But I was still hungry, so I asked for the menu again. Then I realized that the Pasta and Soup were actually under the same ‘Starter’ category. Did not want to show that I ordered the food wrongly, I ordered Tiramisu, hoping at least the cake could fill my almost empty stomach.

And what I got? A cup of chocolate and coffee flavored whipped cream!

As for the bill, I better not to talk about it….

Hmmm, whatever that don't fill my stomach instantly don't taste good. My wallet is starving to death also.
