Brumal Frolicking


I miss laughing with Tram and Michi about fabricated situations.  The Dao House is going down!  Do not go to that restaurant!  Here are the scores:

  • Food: B+ (The food was one of the few good parts of the experience.  We had a three-course meal that composed of beef stew, egg rolls, chicken, and potatoes.  Pretty good.)
  • Price: A+ (This is probably the best part because all the food was free.  However, the bold waitress dared to ask us for tip, to which I replied, “What’s 15% of free?”  Besides, the service was terrible, but we’ll get to that later.)
  • Atmosphere: F+ (We ate in the kitchen!  What kind of restaurant brings its customers to the kitchen to be fed?  There was no theme in the decoration.  There seemed to have been an attempt to portray a winter scenery outside, but the designer must have been confused for there were hints of spring in the overall picture.  There was also a random statue of Mary in the garden.  It was just not cohesive.)
  • Pest Control: C (A few feet away from our table was a bowl, filled with cat food.  To our horror, we encountered a few critters lounging around the kitchen, including a stray cat that loitered around the premises.  The only employee did not do anything to rid the restaurant of such creatures, which my colleague and I believe to be hazards to our health.  Let’s not forget the random arrival of the employee’s grandmother, who out of nowhere stole one of our egg rolls and fled.)
  • Facilities: C (Believing that the “Dao House” offered a homey experience, my colleague and I proceeded to the bedrooms of the edifice to seek some comfort.  To our shock and surprise, some of the available rooms were already occupied by a toddler and a baby!  My partner, who was in desperate need of a comfortable bed, schemed to snatch the baby in the room in which she wanted to sleep and dump it into a less cozy room.  However, due to our compassion and undying respect even for the lowliest establishments, we decided against this plan.  We went to the living room, where the employee tried to entertain us with some television, but as expected, it was not functioning.)
  • Service: F- (The waitress, aside from being the only employee in that establishment, hired and fired herself several times during our stay, leaving us to tend to ourselves for most of the meal.  She had the nerve to ask us whether the food was good enough to be served.  She made us retrieve our own napkins, drinks, and sauce.  In addition, she had the audacity to dine with us, saying that it was a “family” restaurant or something.)

After we finished role-playing, we successfully took a nap.  Later on, we went to the movies and watched “Shutter Island.”

I still can’t critique movies.
