Sammy’s Kitchen

As a bit of an incentive to do more exercise, Martin suggested we walk into town and have dinner – not such a bad idea, but it does, of course, mean that we have to walk home again with full bellies and it is almost winter, which means it is bloody freezing! However, we decided to go for it! We were going to try an Italian place, but Martin was keen to eat at Sammy’s and although I wasn’t really in the mood for all that noise, I decided it was probably early enough that it would be ok. I was right – when we arrived the restaurant was only half full but, when we left, there were people waiting outside for tables! We ordered the veggie spring rolls which came with a great spicy sort of plum type sauce, that I don’t think I have had here before. It was really nice! Our mains were our usual favourites, sizzling tofu with needles mushrooms and dry fried tofu with capsicum and cabbage. They were great as usual, although, I was a little concerned that we wouldn’t get the second one as the waiter didn’t write it down and was trying to recommend something else that he couldn’t find on the menu. He also looked extremely surprised that we wanted two tofu dishes! Anyway, we also had rice, tea and a couple of glasses if wine, and then we decided to head somewhere different for dessert!
