The start of today was Not Good. Not in the sense that I was feeling the after-effects of weekend-consumed alcohol and too little sleep (honest I wasn't, I promise~), more in the sense that Things Happened and it left me in a rather awkward situation and a very frustrated mood. And obviously the best way to relieve that sort of mood is to go to the pretty places and eat food. Obviously.
Sinsa was the place of choice, naturally, but then the problems with where/what to eat arose. See, I am notoriously indecisive when it comes to food, and add that to an irrational dislike of actually trying new places even though I really really want to... makes for a lot of frustration on the part of whoever I'm getting food with. (Sorry in advance if you ever meet me and we go for food...) Thankfully, if you can call two people having that trait at all thankful, Matilda has pretty much exactly the same mindset, so we end up wandering around places for ages until one of us goes 'ah f*ck it let's just try here'. And those places are generally The Best.
Ok I think that's a long-winded enough intro into how we ended up at Public House+ in Garosugil. Not to be confused with Public House. Nope. This restaurant is in the basement. There was a little bit of menu coercing involved by the staff as we stood, indecisive as ever, by the menu outside, tossing back 'but do we really want to eat here' 'what do you think?' 'I don't mind's back and forth. In the end, we did say yes, and the staff happily took us downstairs into the restaurant and made us feel really welcome. It was lovely.
