RE: Confidently Up in Flames

We had a friend who liked to eat out and would try all the small, (what we refereed to as "hole in the wall" places), those little known tiny diners and dives as one TV show put it.

My wife and I liked to try tiny places out also when we we younger and our systems could deal with a bad food day. His recommendations, after trying one, were never visited. He thought this one particular place made the best grilled cheese sandwich in the world. It is very hard to screw up a grilled cheese sandwich, but this place did, they did not even try. I don't think anything was real food they used. Fake bread, (white sliced factory created monstrosity that did not deserve the term bread), fake cheese, (the kind you squirt over nacho's), and I think even fake margarine-which is fake butter.

And yeah why do people not say this is not financial advise when telling you to not buy something.

I like to try places too, but it is strange in Finland. There hasn't been a strong dining out culture in Finland for long (a couple decades) so when people have gone out, they generally order something they know they will like, rather than experiment. Men especially will commonly get a pepper steak, because it is hard to screw it up and the meat doesn't have to be great quality, as the pepper masks the flavor. I find it strange how big a difference in culture there can be i this regard, and it spills into other areas of risk assessment also.

I thought I would have a steak in a hotel restaurant once, because I thought they couldn't mess it up. I was wrong.
They offered another meal to replace it, free of charge. I said, no, please, just let me leave.

Sorry about your day out, that is disappointing.

That must have been a terrible steak! :D

One of the benefits to be young and healthy was getting to try a lot of different foods out. It has been a long time for me and food experimentation. I still like to try new stuff, but there is not a lot of choice where I live. We have Mexican, Italian, Greet, Chinese, and even on Thai place; so a good selection for two small towns that would not total 15,000 people added together.
