Ikea Feast
Ikea Restaurant
Gravad lax, Swedish meatballs, fish and chips, chicken wings, Daim cake, too much information on certain in-bedroom aspects of married life.

Fresh sashimi with good soya sauce, wasabi and a sweet plum leaf. Simmered pork belly was melty, cod fish was slightly overcooked, saba/mackerel which arrived that same morning was also fresh but very bony and over-grilled. Macha cheesecake was pleasant.

Coffee and cake decent but open kitchen meant everyone came out smelling like whatever happened to be cooking.

Resident Chicken of Jubilee Presbyterian Church

Resident Chicken. Uninhibited excitable friendliness suggests bright saffron-coloured future for said chicken.

Company good. Chicken caesar apparently also good. Brownie like sweetened cardboard. Drinks ok. No tap water served.

Cherry Butter Cake
Cherry Butter Cake. Recipe thanks to Annette of Greedy Goose! These cherries were too watery to eat plain and needed to be consigned to the flames.
