I Did Say That I Was Hungry

I didn't have time for breakfast on my last day in Cape Town. I woke up late, ran to the conference, killed my legs by standing for 6 hours and talked myself hoarse by trying to explain all sorts of things that I don't 100% understand.

By the time I made it back to the hotel I was beyond famished!

I stumbled, tummy growling into the empty hotel dining room and there I met the lovely cook.

She was a proper African mamma. "Traditionally built" with hips swaying this way and that way as she wiped down the tables.

"Good day Mma!" said I. "I am so hungry, so very hungry! Am I too late for lunch?"

She looked and me and beamed;

"Oooooooh Mma! You look like you need some fattening up! Sit down and I will make you the best sandwich that you have ever had. "

About 30 mins later, and looking very proud, she came out with this:

The "sandwich" was made with:

4 slices of bacon
1 beef burger
Thick slices of tomato

A fried egg

AND she even made me some chips!

I was stuffed!!!!

    Holly Molly that's enormous! Hand on heart, did you really finish this culinary delight that's only fit for Mike Tyson...?

  6. Nin Jiom Pei Pa Koa (http://ninjiom-hk.cwahi.net/) may be another solution to hoarse and sore throat. i know a lot of people use it, its also non alcoholic, though it's effectiveness is not as good as alcohol based cough medicine, but it's still good to use on not so serious sore or hoarse throat. Hope you are getting well soon!!!

  7. it looks soo delicious! *slobbering* now i feel like having something like that for dinner -.-

  8. I think I tried this in Hong Kong? Your link is broken so I can only guess?

  9. Actually no, but shhhhhhhhhh. My fave sandwich is Hiro's sushi sarnie. It was nori and crab in it.
