The Fortune Star Restaurant at Lancaster, UK
On the cold Saturday night, I was looking for a restaurant or a take away in Lancaster. After walking over in many lanes (I anyway love walking) I decided I would try out a Chinese restaurant by the name of the Fortune Star. I, after all, like Chinese food a lot in India.
It was such a pleasure to get inside the warm restaurant because outside it felt as if it was freezing. This was the day when I had walked for the entire day to Morecambe too. The restaurant seemed to be much in demand and it was quite crowded. The smiling lady at the counter told me that seats would not be possible for a long time but if I wish to take away the food, they would take my order.
So I went in for egg rice and assorted vegetables, both are dishes that I enjoy a lot. While I was waiting for the food to arrive I clicked the picture of that cute statue with the tray of drinks. When the food arrived, I walked back in anticipation of enjoying it in the peace and warmth of my room.
After I settled in my room, I opened the dishes and started gobbling them down. I realized the rice dish was OK as the egg pieces in it had some salt. But the vegetable dish with mushrooms, baby corn and stuff had no salt in it at all. It was a little late at night and I didn’t wish to disturb my hosts at the bed and breakfast for salt.
So, I gobbled what I could and the rest I unfortunately had to throw away! The tea tray and the hot water kettle in my room were my saviors that night. And I as I always say, I sleep better after a cup of tea.
