Haha, I’ve never dined out so happily and freely. Allen’s got tons of Mystery Cards from his company to the Italian restaurant Carino’s. Each one has a possiblity of having values from $5 to $500! I had a blog post on the restaurant before but I just had to do one more because it’s once in a lifetime thing where I don’t need to worry about how much something costs!
That card I’m holding in my hand is the mystery card (hmm, wonder how much was on that particular one!) Heh heh, Allen said I looked so 肉紧 (intense?) on the picture. Of course, I was so happy!
Uh oh, this is the best of the entire dinner tonight. New apetizer, Sicilian Fire Sticks:
“A delicious blend of Italian sausage, chopped grilled chicken, bacon, roma tomatoes, jalapenos, and creamy Italian cheeses, rolled in a tomato basil tortilla. Served with ranch and spicy marinara.”
Ah, it was so delicious and crunchy and big! (see how the menu is not even as tall as them?)
Soup and salad as usual (I think it was potato soup):
Both of the entrees were not so good. We were wrong in thinking of getting seafood which were among the most expensive dishes. It’s an Italian restaurant, not Japanese, for God’s sakes!
Snow Crab Ravioli
I was so looking forward to dessert. But having had their Tiramisu and Chocolate Cannoli before, I wanted to try something different. There was bread pudding and cheesecake and so on, but Allen picked this Apple Skilletini:
“Handmade pastry baked with cinnamon apples and topped with hot caramel, served with vanilla ice cream.”
Haha, when it was time to pay, we presented them with so many Mystery Cards they were totally surprised! And kept on asking where we obtained the cards from, we ain’t telling you, of course!
