Have a Lucky New Year

Once again I got to go to Vij's for a meal. God bless December being three-cheque month, among other windfalls I am grateful for.

This is what I ate:




I drank a couple of cocktails - a whiskey charmer and a dark army and I wish I could remember what was supposed to be in them beyond pomegranate and edible silver and coriander - and a bottle of a really wonderful beer that I can't remember the name of. Good info, huh? The chai was excellent as well.

My god was this food satisfying, brought to the table by a team of people who said only what needed saying, and did only what needed doing. The tip for the nameless horde was big. My wish for you in the new year, gentle reader, is that you should have a meal like this. Note the few recipes available at the site.

Soon I drink, and I hope your celebrations went/will go well.

would phone books do, because i got a lot of 'em and i'm thinking of posting a very intimidating sign for anyone who might have been thinking of leaving another goddamned phone book on my doorstep.

I forget what's in a dark army, but it's stirred with a boomstick.

Happy New Year, Substance!

I'd post on the latest post, but refuse to comment in the same thread with a speedra.

I read this entry last night and I got so jealous, even though I ate a Thai salad with red curry fish for dinner.

See, I live outside of DC, which might as well be 5 hours outside of DC given our traffic situation and my aversion to busy highways. And DC is just now becoming a "food town," so we are way behind you when it comes to this kind of cuisine. *wistful sigh*

Your cocktails sound downright sexy. I'll have to do some research on them.
