November 22, 2008 - Kitchen's Closed

Kristoffer and I had a nice day out in the sun today, shopping at an outdoor bazarre and laying by the pool. It was a really hot day here - Africa hot even! Around 5:45 pm we went to a new restaurant in Nairobi that we discovered last weekend for an early dinner. They have EXCELLENT chocolate milkshakes, which I really craved after all the sun. So we arrived, were given food and drink menus, and ordered our drinks. When the waitress brought our drinks, she put them down and started to walk away. Kristoffer said, "Can we order our food now?" She replied, "Food?" We replied, "Yes." She then said, "Oh, the kitchen is closed since 5:30 pm." So Kristoffer said, "Then why did you give us the food menu?" to which she simply said, "Oh, sorry," and we asked for our check.

We have had plenty of experiences at restaurants here where they didn't have some of the food on the menu, but to actually not even be open and still be giving people the menu was a little crazy! As Kristoffer said when the waitress walked away, "That was a new one."

Am I allowed to start an official countdown until we leave for our holiday? If so, we're at 13 days. Oh yeah...and only 15 weeks left until Simba roars for the first time!

When Hauge was in Ghana, he experienced something in the same category: They were at this fancy restaurant, or at least thought they were... They got the menu, and there were a lot of fine dishes to choose from, but when they ordered, the waiter said "oh no, haven't got that one... or that one... or...". Like many other places, the restaurant had tried to look more advanced than it was, and the chef could actually only make one meal.
