Recently I read that there is a simple way to tell if someone is really ‘into’ us, and not surprisingly, in a material world full of material girls and boys , it supposedly depends on how much money and how much commitment we are willing to put into that initial meeting or on that all important first date. Now I don’t know if this applies if you’ve met online, in a supermarket, in a bar or even in a sex club, although I would think that if you had met someone in a sex club, then it’s a little too late to be exchanging niceties and polite conversation over a Frappuccino and a chocolate brownie. I’d find it hard to be coy and flirtatious with someone who’s already familiar with my ins and outs or outs and ins, depending on whatever makes you happy. I hate being asked to meet for ‘coffee’. Firstly, I’m allergic to it and it makes me behave like I’ve ingested a speedball. Hardly perfect first date material am I? I’ll just sit there covered in hives and frantically fidgeting, whilst sweating and chewing my tongue like a junkie waiting for their next fix.

Have been here a few times and it’s never a bad visit. The food and the staff are excellent and the service is quick. You won’t be sorry. Food is good, I’ve tried several different dishes and have liked them all. My favorite is Arroz con Pollo. However, the service can be quite slow at times. Sometimes it’s fine, but other times I have to wave down a server to ask for a refill or place my order.
