G and I were waiting for a flight and we had a few hours to go and nothing to do, so we went eating after browsing around (nothing much to see). He ordered a burger and I ordered a calamari. I thought it was going to be a small plate for us to share and then this ginormous martini glass showed up piled high with calamari.
“Holy mackerel, is that for moi?” I inquired as the waiter laughing hysterically put it on our table.
“You want a picture with it, eh?” He asked, still laughing.
“Sure” I replied, “I will take it myself, thanks.”
He walked away still laughing.
The calamari is kind of chewy and hard to eat. They line the bottom of the big glass with fresh potato chips though, so that was pretty good. I have no idea about G’s burger. He woofed the burger down while I was still gobsmacked. This restaurant is definitely more drinking than eating, but this is certainly a novel way to lure people back for more…
If you like stuff like this in an airport, this is it.
