A different kind of ambush

A friend introduced this place to me for a weekend lunch. It was fairly new. The prices were really reasonable and the food was mostly European, which was a good change. I ordered the salmon salad while my friend ordered a pasta. Both meals were fine for the price that we paid for them.

The menu was in the form of newsprint and the famous quotes were quite entertaining. I went back on another occasion and ordered the baby mackerel salad and rosti which were both quite nice as well. The rosti was a little oily but still quite palatable.

I also ordered the coffee which I regretted. Like so many other places I’ve been to, coffee seems to be an afterthought. Coffee beans actually do not cost that much, compared to the price of a cup of coffee but little thought goes into making a decent cup at many of these restaurants.

All in all, the ambush was not bad. The weekday set lunches are better value than the dinners.
