Mother’s Day Brunch @ Nosh Restaurant & Bar
On Mother’s Day, my children wanted to surprise me with the venue but whilst in the cab, they could no longer keep it a secret. They gave the cabbie the address, “109 Mount Faber”. I asked if it was Faber Bistro. Vanessa replied yes and I casually mentioned that I’d been there before and the food was only okay. That remark changed their plans and within a few seconds, we were re-routed to Rochester Drive. With my camera in hand, I was happy to review a new place.
It was unfortunate that brunch was not so great in terms of food experience but the service was commendable. The staff was efficient and the friendly manager made his round to check on the tables.
“Is everything okay?” the manager asked. I wanted to tell him that the chef had given me bergedil instead of crab cakes and that the fish tacos were black, not delicately charred. I saw the baffled looks from a mom and her 2 children a few tables away. I’m guessing from the limited items on Kids’ Menu that they’d ordered Fish & Chips. I was not exaggerating when I say the pieces of fish were black.
I do mean BLACK! That mom held up the fish against the daylight and squinted her eyes to scrutinise the fillet but did not complain. I was expecting her to ask to see the manager. She didn’t and so it was none of my business. Over at our side, all is forgiven as I had great company for brunch. We paid up for our bland food and moved on for dessert elsewhere.
Happiness is not determined by what’s happening around you but rather what’s happening inside of you.
