Expert Pepper Pourers in Restaurants – Rant

Why, when you go to a restaurant can you not put pepper in your own meal?

Your meal arrives, the waiting staff go off and come back with a 3 foot long pepper grinder and ask if you want pepper. What’s the story?

1) Why is the pepper grinder ginormous?
2) Why can you not do it yourself?
3) Do these waiting staff have to do a Post-graduate Masters Degree OR PhD in Pepper Dispensing?

It’s just silly!

LEAVE THE PEPPER ON THE TABLE!!!!!

Kam Wok Asian Cuisine, Cavan – Restaurant Review

On a recent visit to Cavan, we found it hard to locate restaurants (especially on a Sunday evening), but were lucky to find the Kam Wok Asian Restaurant in Cavan town.

The restaurant is located up a stairs and we were welcomed at the door by staff. The restaurant is very nicely decorated, nice Chinese touches here and there.

The Food:
Starters : The starters are large and very nicely presented and I could easily have had a second round of starters, it was so tasty. (Chose crispy won ton)

Mains : I chose a seafood selection. The course came sizzling in a pot, which I like, and was in a chinese wine sauce. Amazing flavour and the seafood was plentyful and varied.

The Service
Apart from the free Prawn Crackers which is always a nice touch – The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful if they tried. Not simply, “How was your meal” but we actually had nice conversations with the staff between courses.

Overall
Cannot rate this restaurant highly enough. I like my Chinese food and this was top notch.
I doubt I will be in Cavan in the near future, but if I am, I will be returning.
