Hell’s kitchen

It was a different weekend of some sorts. We left the car behind and took the public transport into Fremantle.


Pipsqueak cider and Bright ale from Little Creatures are the best partners in crime. I bought 3 second hand Agatha Christies that day, so happy.


Then it was dinner at Ecco! We had a scoopon voucher which came with a bottle of wine, a seafood platter as an entree, pizzas or pastas as main and tiramisu to end with.


The food itself was quite nice. I had a blue cheese and pear and pinenuts pizza. The sharpness of the cheese and the sweetness of the pear made for an interesting and delightful combination.

What was more interesting was the chaotic kitchen and wait staff, and the increasingly furious expressions of our fellow patrons as they waited for their food. There was the waitress that kept bringing wrong orders to tables, and turned around in circles looking lost and perplexed. Also the family of four that were happy and cheerful during the first hour but grew really grumpy after everyone who came later than them received their food earlier. And the poor couple who were romantically holding hands during the first hour of waiting, during the 2nd hour, the guy’s face was black as thunder, his arms were crossed. He looked pretty scary.


Tiramisu for dessert, it was just average for me.  The whole night was just like an episode of Hell’s Kitchen, finishing with a couple walking out because no one bothered taking their orders. Somehow, we still managed to have fun and enjoy ourselves tremendously.


Deep fried prawn wontons that I prepared, froze overnight and defrosted in the oven for our afternoon tea the next day. They were very popular with my colleagues as all fried food usually are. Back to work tomorrow 😦
