"Ai chiak hamik?" (what do you want to eat? He didn't say darling, that was just wishful thinking on my part) my partner asked me one Friday evening. "Lu ai chiak hamik?" (what do you want to eat?) I asked him back.
It's always like that with us. He asks me and then I ask him. Ultimately he leaves the decision to me. "Chili's ah?" he suggested, while my head was still spinning on where to go. So Chilis it was.
It was a busy night and to avoid having to wait, we sat at the table outside. I was hungry but I did not want to indulge in the usual stuff that I eat at Chilis.
My partner has been choosing to eat salads at Chilis. In the past, Fish and Chips was his usual and he would refer to eating salad as "chiak chau" (eating grass).
So, a Santa Fe Chicken Salad for him. The only salad that does not contain cheese.
And a Buffalo Chicken Salad for her with instructions to leave out the feta cheese.
Does that look good or what?
For drinks, we decided not to have the refillable drinks. Our usual was the lemonade but we wised up. After all, how much can one drink in one sitting? For that price, if you can only finish one mug or only half, it's not worth it.
One bottle to share.
We enjoyed our salads (except that I thought mine needed more dressing) and I better think of where to go next week.
