It took us a few minutes to decide on a restaurant and a few more to gather our courage for a new and slightly intimidating experience but once we were seated and the two helpful waitresses had explained how to order (in English no less) we were ready for anything. The food was delicious and we were stuffed by the end of it but without any other plans for the day this wasn't an issue. On the way ...
