 she ordered the toasted club which was quite satisfactory except for the inclusion of American cheese.  Since when does cheese belong on a club sandwich?

 

 

 

 

Oh, dear Lord, let's not get into the Club sandwich controversy again.  I am still bruised from the last time.  LOL 😉

Despite taking pains to make this salad,  it was as tasteless as a plate of water. The zucchini was as limp as a dish rag, the tomatoes lacked any flavour and the dressing also fell flat. 

 

Even my garlic toast didn’t measure up.

The lamb chops and mint sauce were excellent. 

 

Despite shortcomings I still over ate.

The Beyond burgers were US $10 near me, CAD $8 is a bargain!

With its honey The Last Wynd looked a little sweet, however I was enchanted by the Dernier Mot variation.  Hardest part was locating the coup to drink it from.  I used Chartreuse Green V.E.P., Luxardo, and Neisson l'Esprit.  My go to white mai tai rhum is La Favorite Blanc but this called for l'Esprit.

 I did not find it sweet. At least not abominably so.  To me it seemed right on between sweet and bitter. YMMV.

That controversy was, and still is, worthy.

 

American cheese on a club is not a controversy; it's a friggin' travesty.

Never a worry for me - might take a picture in a coup - never drink them without ice.

Ok, here we go.  Deli American cheese (not the plastic wrapped stuff) is a necessity on a club, as is ham and turkey.  Sigh.

Cheese is a fine addition to a sandwich. Just not on a club.

      Host's note: the initial title of this thread was "Swarvin' in ???"  as a teaser.  Once the destination was identified as Newfoundland, the title was changed to reflect this.  The initial comments were based on the ??? In the title.
       
       
      And we'll soon be off.......culinary adventures to follow.

      Some of you may recall that in 2016 I had a blog about our trip to Newfoundland.  We are going there again tomorrow for a week, returning July 1 and I thought that since we are going to, and eating at, places different from that year, I would do another blog.  When I booked our flights and accommodations (7 places in 8 nights) last February, June 23rd seemed like a long ways away.  Yet here we are, about to leave.   I hope some of you will follow along as we travel through the province.

      In December, I spent 3 glorious weeks eating my way through Japan; Tokyo, Kanazawa, Kyoto, Sapporo, Hakodate and back to Tokyo. It was my 11th (!) trip to Japan but my mother had never been, so I thought I'd take the old girl over for a good time. We did not kill each other, surprisingly.
       
      I'll come back and caption these a little more informatively over coming weeks, but as you can see, we ate rather a lot.

      I have just returned home after four days (three nights) in Guilin. This was a business trip, so no exotic tales this time. Just food. Anyway, despite its reputation, Guilin is actually a rather dull city for the most part - anything interesting lies outside the city in the surrounding countryside.
       
      I was staying in the far east of the city away from the rip-off tourist hotels and restaurants and spent my time with local people eating in normal restaurants.
       
      I arrived in Wednesday just in time for lunch.
       
      LUNCH WEDNESDAY
       
      We started with the obligatory oil tea.
       

      Oil Tea
       

      Omelette with Chinese Chives
       

      Stir-fried Mixed Vegetables
       

      Sour Beef with Pickled Chillies
       

      Cakes*
       

      Morning Glory / Water Spinach**
       
      * I asked what the cakes were but they got rather coy when it came to details. It seems these are unique to this restaurant.
       
      ** The Chinese name is 空心菜 kōng xīn cài, which literally means 'empty heart vegetable', describing the hollow stems.
