噚日交換禮物之後, 一眾同事打鑼打鼓咁去食今年嘅year-end dinner, 揀咗呢間La Bodega食西班牙tapas.. 我哋一棚16人墟墟撼撼咁佔據咗餐廳一個角落, 話是話都相當顯眼.. 例牌地每次都係由我負責點菜(我好想問點解?? 唔通我一副食家相??), 呢次真係有難度, 因為唔係自己點自己嗰份, tapas都係叫一大堆全部人share先過癮, 再加上16人份, 份量的確好難估計.. 當然最後點咗成檯嘢, 一輪二輪三輪之後終於都喂飽各位同事們喇.. :)
服務唔錯, 負責serve我哋個侍應都幾專業.. 不過食物方面就未如我理想中好味, 而且當中有某幾樣睇得出係做得相當敷衍, 比較能令我贊賞嘅係個羊肉丸/ 雞肉串燒/ 海鮮燴飯(呢樣應該係鎮店之寶, 必試), 其他嘅我就覺得可以做得更好囉.. 埋單總共1250大元, 其實都OK冇嚇親我, 不過就覺得飲品好貴, 佔咗成張單三成咁多呢!!
不過我覺得同事都好似食得頗拘謹未夠盡興, 下次係唔係應該食餐buffet就算喇?? 話晒夠晒大眾化, 而且又可以任大家依個人喜好自由發揮..after the gift exchange yesterday, we went off straight for our year-end dinner, having spanish tapas at La Bodega this year.. total 16 of us in this huge gang, we were arranged to be seated at a table spanning the entire corner, was quite obvious of us actually.. like a ritual i am the one who is responsible to order (sometimes i really wonder why, since i don’t look like a gastronome right??), but this time it came a bit challenging for me, as i need to order food for 16 people, the amount is just so difficult to estimate.. tapas is best to be shared amongst us, so really have to take care of everyone.. we had food all over our long table for sharing, one round two rounds three rounds, and i finally able to stuff everyone’s stomach to heaven.. :)
the service was not bad, especially our dedicated waiter (well seeing our number of pax, we just deserved one right??) was quite professional.. anyway food was not as good as what i had expected, can see some were prepared rather simply, among the food the ones that i think was good – lamb meatball, chicken toriyaki allioli (fusion??) and seafood paella, whereas others i think could be done better.. the total bill came up at around 1250, not a surprise for me and i kind of expected that for this gang, but drinks were a little expensive as it took up one third of the bill..
just noticed some of us were a bit reserved and didn’t really enjoy the food too much, perhaps next time we can just go for buffet instead?? more common but most importantly it can suite everyone’s appetite and just go on their own way..
