We went to Chiquito this evening. I’ve been to this restaurant a number of times before and have always been impressed – not tonight!

It appeared there were only 3 people running the whole restaurant and 1 chef in the open plan kitchen. No surprises that we were made to wait almost an hour for a table and then another long spell for our food once we finally were seated.

While waiting for our food, we were entertained by a furious female customer. She was as wide as she was tall, and she was very, very tall. She was mad about the massive delay after booking a table for her son’s 18th birthday.“You only get one 18th birthday!” she correctly informed the waiter.

When my food finally arrived, I was not impressed at all. It was cooked, but tasted like it had been left out all afternoon – very cold and dry. I told the manager, who I think was Gus Poyet’s brother, who ran off to the kitchen to fetch a replacement.

The substitute was steaming hot – great for me. Pity for the poor sod it was about to be served to (who Gus informed me would “have to wait”). It was like an episode of Fawlty Towers – a total farce.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
