The Perfect Evening

If you are looking for the perfect evening – and who isn’t? – you need to start with a perfectly bad week.

In fact, a crappy month closely followed by another throughly shitty month with a light shower of some particularly pissy days in-between will definitely set the conditions for a perfect evening.

Anyway, been trying to catch up with Joe for a while, but being a busy person with better things to do than hang out with a has-been, it was hit and miss for a while.

It turned out that the conditions were right (see second paragraph) and off we went to Azhang’s because we all needed a little wine.

In truth, I am very bad at suggesting places to eat. This is because I tend to gravitate towards certain things that most people will cringe at the mere thought of a suggestion.

However, it was with a timorous foot that I stepped into Azhang for fear that there may not be room. It was all for naught as we were greeted by Ava and Patrick with warm and welcoming smiles.


By the way, Joe has one of the coolest introductions ever. It goes like “Hi, I’m Joe and I’m a Scientist.” How cool is that?!

Cooler than you, for a start. ;P

The stars were in alignment that night as Ava whispered to me “There’s Duck Riellete tonight.”

And so, for the curious, dinner comprised of

  1. Chicken Liver and Pork Pate with Lime served with Foccacia
  2. Duck Riellete
  3. Grilled Rack of Lamb
  4. Ribeye Steak
  5. Tiramisu
  6. Cheesecake
  7. Corned Beef Fried Rice

Yes. There was the traditional Corned Beef Fried Rice (with actual sweet corn) that comes after dessert. It was excellent.

Anyway, our tour of all edible meats was well-lubricated by an Riesling and a South African Pinotage. Joe even learnt to swirl the wines left-handed.

We talked, chatted and shared. And it was good. Finally, we left sated and well-buzzed and I had a good night’s sleep.

Hey Joe: Must do this again, but maybe without the bad times.

[…] Finally came the Corned Beef Fried Rice with Roasted Sweet Corn. I first had this a while back. We were given a tablespoon full each after dessert. Naturally, I insisted that Patrick must serve this at Jazz night. […]
