On the weekend I went to a birthday lunch with friends, to a ribs restaurant (a child-friendly venue!). I can’t remember the name of it, something along the lines of Ribs All Round, or All You Can Eat Meat, or Vegetarians ‘R’n’t Us – you get the picture.
Upon reading the menu, we were somewhat taken with the “BBQ Chicken” option. A WHOLE BBQ chicken. And the 750g steak (that’s 1.6 pounds in the US). And of course the 1.1kg of ribs – which of course is what I (stupidly) ordered, assuming that at least half of it would be bones. Husby ordered a burger.
And did I mention the menu strictly forbade the sharing of main meals (we did ponder how they would police that). And did I also mention you got a choice of a jacket potato, with lashings of sour cream, or chips. Just wanted to make it clear that the meals involved no greenery at all – unless you ordered a salad (“sized to share”!).
That’s one huge rack of pork ribs and two, yep count’em two racks of lamb ribs underneath.
In the event that I ever think it is a good idea to order this many ribs again, please remind me of this experience. Say no to the ribs. Back away from the meat.
