Lulu ... Paceville

i seem to have gotten the habit of writing in here
only when i eat great meals
or positive meals

i ll make it a point to find a place i want to trash next time

but no not this time
yes folks
this is another positive review

the owner and/or manager at lulu is a nice chap to begin with
sense of humour
and as far as our party was concerned
we were taken care of directly by him

my starter was a salad
main element being parma ham and figs
the rest was lettuce and/or rucola
batheing in a delicious aceto

first course went swimmingly

the other people at my table had garganelli with duck and orange sauce
which was very exquisite
then someone took a fresh gbejna fried in an almond crust
thats it i think

main course some of us ordered venison
which apparently had to be cooked rare
however when it came it was quite brown
and i felt like it would have tasted much better had it been cooked as it was listed
one guy
took black angus steak

i finished the last morsels off for him
tisk tisk
and these stolen morsels were truly the highlight of the meal
i doubt if i have ever eaten better steak

so if there is something
i do recommend
is this black angus argentine beef thing
however it was an unlisted special
probably depends on seasonal availability

till next time...


Karnival tan-Nadur

the nadur carnival in malta
can be one of the best experiences
i dressed up as an alien
specifically a bith from the star wars saga
biths are found playing clarinet-like instruments in cantinas
except my costume also had angel wings

that was saturday
i prepared this itsy bitsy teensy weensy elaborate meal
for the people staying at the farmhouse i was at


which means ("and so...")

first course included:

foie gras topped with an apple sauce
a cutlet of medium rare tandoori ostrich
cherries parcelled in bacon strips
and oven cooked glazed onions

main course contained:

a larger than usual bragiolu (in english this has been given the inapproriate title of "stuffed beef olive") with asparagus
a sautee of potato wedges cooked in reduced lamb stock
an undercooked tomato filled with beef salmon egg and chestnuts
and a lettuce salad


dark chocolate cheesecake
with biscuit base and fresh fruit

i will not go on about how good this was
but i must say that those who had the joy to sample my creations seemed to agree:
having me as a friend reaps its benefits
