No rat relatives on the menu today. Nothing remotely funny about the name of the dish. And everything we ate for lunch in our first Bolivian restaurant was legal, decent, honest-to-goodness grub.
It was just the price we thought out of the ordinary. See if you agree.
First course – a help yourself, all you can eat salad bar.
Second course – soup. My command of the Spanish language is such that I can’t help you with the name of the dish, but there was definitely some lamb in there, as well as assorted vegetables, cream, chilli, garlic, olive oil, turmeric and other good stuff.
Looked and tasted home made and jolly toothsome too.
Course three – linguini bolognese. Nothing more to add, other than it was fresh and there was plenty of it.
Finally, the dessert – trifle.
Total for four courses, £1.96 a head.
Coffee was included, but wine was extra. My large glass of Argentinian Malbec Reserve came in at 80p.
They always get you on the drinks.
