Mediteca

Last Friday (I'm pulling a William here, so it's actually God know last, last, last, last or last, last, last, last, last Friday), KH FFK me for lunch and dinner, so he made it up by bringing me to Mediteca. SK was invited along, but she was a little late due to fantastic traffic conditions. Like the previous Fridays, I was dogged by production problems at work and had to take calls, but luckily it was settled while waiting for SK to arrive. The waiter, Morsey and his female counterpart immediately recognized my boyfriend and ushered him to the table. Business was OK that night. A bunch of middle-aged ladies of leisure were having their oestrogen party (kalau belum menopause). Definitely kaya-raya judging from the way that they were carrying themselves-- when camwhoring, when laughing. Kepalsuan yang teramat. When the camera's trained on them, their backbones snap straight and they bring their chest to fore. At the other table, a bunch of quiet Japanese were eating and the latecomers were a group of yuppies celebrating a birthday. They came with helium balloons. I was half-expecting expecting party hats and Happy Meals. We started with a platter of ham and cold cuts with Burrata cheese and fig jam. Creamy, salty and sweet. Yummy. Followed up with warm veal tongue with cress pickle and red onion. Loved it! We sat just in front of the meat counter, so we had a god view of the owner (Riccardo Ferrarotti) working in a tight floral shirt. Unfortunately, he's not cute. While slicing the meat, he would go all "tro-lo-lo-lo-lo" in his deep Baritone voice. LOL. Still feeling a tad nippy, we had the chicken wings wrapped in lard with garlic rosemary and juice. Succulent wings in salty wrapping. Interesting. Our happy hour wine also came with some mini tapas of Spanish potato omelette and grilled prawns. Completed the meal with an order of cold alcoholic coffee. I chose Amaretto with cocoa dark, while SK went with brandy. Towards the end, an elderly ang moh walked in with his young money boy, but they were too busy fiddling with their gadgets rather than each other (unlike KH and I :DDD).
