It was my friend’s birthday a week or two ago and I wanted to take her somewhere special. I started looking around for the latest openings around town and after a week of looking I decided to book at The Wet Fish Cafe, my favourite place to eat in my neighbourhood.
Now I eat at the Wet Fish Cafe a lot and have yet to have a bad meal there, but it never really occurred to me to take people there for special occasions. This summer I took a group of friends from New York for dinner at the WFC and they fell in love with it. I guess I tend to overlook it for special occasions as I think of it as an extension of my own home. It’s kind of like that girl next door you never realise is pretty until someone else tells you she is.
Needless to say my friend loved the food as much as I did and her birthday lunch was a great success. Never again will I take my beloved WFC for granted!
