Mini

May 10, 2007

Last night we had dinner at Mini (http://www.minirestaurant.com.au/). The food was fantastic, especially the starters: mini chicken pie, savoury and delicate with a light, moist pastry; tiny, slightly salty calamari with lime and spinach; and aromatic beef-mince-stuffed ‘spring rolls’.

The chefs certainly have their act together. It’s just a shame they’re being so let down by the floor staff. Our waitress was competent, and knew what she was doing (more or less), but made the specials sound like a chore. And she had that glazed-over, bitter attitude.

At one point she was laying down more entree cutlery for M (after having mistakenly cleared it).  M had his hand on the table, just where she wanted to lay the fork. So she just flicked his hand out of the way with the fork.

This waitress must only be a few steps away from stabbing a fork through someone’s hand.
