A and I went hunting for this restaurant, just because I had heard great things about this place and I wanted to eat Better Than Sex @ Better Than Sex.Wish I had known better!
This is a dark, cozy little restaurant. The place is so dark; they actually give a flash light along with the menu!
And the waiters/waitresses are dressed in black too. The decor is all red.
The waiter came over. Everything on the menu is fresh and made in house - except the ice cream - he said, with the widest grin I have even seen. We ordered Better Than Sex. $13.95. Splurging once in while is OK...we tell each other.(Except "once in while" comes too often.). Never mind. We are in for a special treat, we thought.
We entertained ourselves with the "Couple Talk" game that was kept on our table. It had a bunch of cards laden with questions. You are supposed to ask each other questions (like, what are the 10 things you want to do after retirement and when do you want to retire? ooooooh and A said he wants to travel, open a restaurant, buy a vacation home on the beach on some lovely island, travel and travel....Did I mention travel??) and have one of those man to woman and vice versa conversations. Of course, it wouldn't be possible if you are thinking too much about the dessert, instead.
It was quite sometime before the dessert arrived. No wonder they subtly suggest playing a game, by leaving one on your table.
One look at it and we frown. One bite later, Crapola! Did we order Brownies??? Is this what it is? You know what it says on the menu -
"Deep, Dark, Chocolate, Penetrates big bold Bing cherries swimming in a menage a trois of choclates and baked dark dense almond bread and butter. A bread pudding that melts in your mouth."
They gave us brownies and called it bread pudding? And for this we were made to wait so long? Oh puhleez! I didn't pay $13.95 for a couple of brownies topped with a couple of strawberries. Truly, a disaster. Never again.
Don't waste your time and money going to this place. If you really have to go, don't order "Better Than Sex". Because, it really is not!!!
