It has been a very long time. With his work schedule for his new employers and the fact that he is based out Thrissur and has to travel a bit, I haven’t met my buddy Anil in a long, long time. We chatted on Whatsapp a couple of days ago and he called me this morning and said he was coming to town and would I be free to meet him. I sure was and I was planning on going out anyway.
We met at Couchyn and despite his pleas to go elsewhere I told him that we were here; let’s drink. I finally convinced him and we were hungry – I hadn’t had anything other than a black coffee all day and it was just after 12 pm – so we ordered some French fries and I finally got to have a Bira! I will talk about Bira brand of beers later but it is a first for me. And he ordered a couple Old Monk rums with a Coke.
We talked and ate a bunch. After the French fries, we had some honey flavoured crispy chicken strips and chilly fish (which was awesome).
We also ordered an Ammachi’s chicken which was terrible. We sent it back and instead got a cheese omelet each which were yum.
By 5 pm we left and I went to get some groceries on my way back home and took a nap.
