The above pic was the view from our room.
Not that I spent too much time in the room.
This post is about the food.
My stomach is still in shock.
I didn’t take any photos of the food.
I should have as it was awesome.
No…I am being silly.
Let me start at the beginning.
The package was incredible value.
It cost R999 for two nights.
Bed and breakfast.
For two people.
That is about $125.00
In addition they gave me two vouchers.
One for R500 to use for gambling($62.00)
And one for R500 for a meal.
For those of you who are a bit slow at Maths, they gave you your money back in vouchers.
The hotel is unbelievable.
Everything was top class.
As it should be for a five star hotel.
There were lots of little fancy touches.
Like an electronic scale in the bathroom. I ventured onto the scale on the second day and it was one and a half kgs less than mine.
I asked if I could take the scale home but they just smiled.
When you opened the built in cupboard a light went on.
I played with this quite a bit.
I know…small things amuse small minds.
Ok…I shall tell you about the first meal we had.
It used up the whole voucher but it was SO worth it.
It was a buffet and they had everything.
And I mean everything.
My diet was put on the back burner.
Actually, my diet was completely forgotten.
Diet was a four letter word.
Never to be mentioned.
I started with a plate of mussels, roll mops and a couple of other things.
The mussels were so good I went back and had seconds.
Then I had roast beef and fantastic Yorkshire puddings.
An array of veggies and one roast potato.
There was such a selection of food.
Stews and curries.
Pastas and fish dishes.
You name it and it was there.
The deserts were mind boggling.
I had some ice cream and chocolate sauce.
Also, a caramel thingy.
And the final straw was a chocolate mousse in a glass.
It was orgasmic.
But I couldn’t finish it.
This post is getting too long.
I will continue tomorrow.
