*raises her glass* "A toast: while most people eat to live, I live to eat. There's nothing like enjoying a delicious home-cooked meal with a fine bottle of wine in the company of fantastic friends. To life!"
Shallen and I attended a friend's Baby Shower today at the Pagoda Long Bar and Restaurant in Como. I, just as other people I have spoke to, have driven past this restaurant countless times and because of its 'pagoda' architecture, always thought it was some sort of Chinese restaurant. It's actually a restaurant and bar that's attached to some accommodation and it's quite large and roomy. Perfect setting for high tea (other than the outdoors!) and everyone else seemed to have the same idea. Most tables were occupied by groups of ladies also having Baby Showers!
I think the cost per person was $30 and the food was okay. I was most interested in the savoury sandwiches and it seems so were most other people. Most of the sweets remained uneaten.
