A happy heart! ***
I felt like being rewarded for a productive week, you know, felt like giving myself the proverbial pat on the back for a week spent in the glorious routine of urban survival. I’m usually indifferent to this weekly cycle; week long mundanity followed by social celebratory outbursts on Friday night. However this Friday, I joined the herd that flocked to the nearest waterhole, where the world would be forgotten in a heady mix of intoxication, loud music and pretty-people.
Woodside provides the perfect backdrop for a night out. As soon as I walked in, I felt happy. The staff is warm and pleasant, everyone from the concierge to the housekeeping lady in the bathroom met me with a smile. But it’s something more than the staff. The place seems to have it’s heart in the right place.
We decided to order off the season’s special menu, and settled for a Mandarin Pork Salad followed by Slow Cooked pork with a red wine jus. Both the dishes were delicious. My accompanying drink, a white wine Sangria was particularly well made. The Red Velvet cake that brought the meal to a close wasn’t bad either, but could’ve definitely been more refined.
I will be back, I have no doubt. Maybe for breakfast, maybe with some friends, maybe for coffee.
