|Old Mr Oreste vs young Mr Oreste|
Me: "Mr Oreste, I would like to make a booking at your restaurant for dinner on 11 September, it's our first wedding anniversary, thank you."
An unexpected reply soon came back: "Dear Eddie, 11 September, dinner ok. Enjoy 20% discount for my birthday. Ciao. Oreste."
OK, maybe my wedding anniversary isn't such a big deal, but come on man, is your birthday so much bigger a deal? Well, a discount is a discount, and since he is so full of self-admiration, even better for us, because the food will be good. La Buca wouldn't be voted one of Thailand's best restaurants by Tatler for no reason.
|One of Thailand's best restaurants according to Tatler|
|One of the most obvious things in the restaurant.|
|Home-made tagliatelle with Foie Gras and truffle|
|Saffron risotto with braised veal shank|
"We have the La Buca cake. Best in the world." (again, best in the world?)
*kisses his fingers*
*swirls his fingers as if caressing the chin of his mistress*
"Chocolate mousse.........." (I had a good laugh)
How could we not order it?
|La Buca cake, best in the world (?)|
|Happy Birthday Mr Oreste, please give us a discount next year too! Any discount during Christmas or New Year? Or maybe your mom's bday, or your dad's?|
