House special - mushroom steak. It wasn't as massive as what the waiter described, but still sizable. The mushrooms were canned - I don't understand why a restaurant would use them. If you can't get fresh button mushrooms, there must be some other kind you can get - chanterelles, oysters, portabellos, or any kind of local varieties. The flavour of the canned mushrooms was a detriment to the dish, but it was still welcome to see SOME kind of vegetables on my plate. The sauce wasn't that great, but it was a nice cut of beef - tender, juicy, and tasty. But it was missing something ... I kept adding salt, but it didn't help much. It was lacking that certain oomph that makes a great steak. The side dish was yummy little fried potato balls - they may have even been chickpeas, I really couldn't tell. The sauce went better with the fried balls than it did with the steak. There was a lot of cilantro on the dish - interesting, but not sure if I liked how it was used. While not a great meal, it was still great value - it probably cost half as much as a similar meal back home. I finished up my meal, and my journal writing - I've finally caught up! With all the good food, good friends, and good conversation for the past few weeks, I haven't had much opportunity to write. As such, I've been several days behind in my journal until now.

They kept coming in and out of the room, talking loudly and making all kinds of noise. I should've just joined the party out back last night - I went to bed at 11:00, but couldn't get to sleep until ... read more
