I had that in Berlin in June (Without the peas). Absolutely cracking. It was one of those moments I often have when I am on the road, where I look at the menu and think, "I've never had that. That's what I'm getting." I have done this in loads of places. Most of the time I can't even understand the words properly, although variations of 'carne' and 'viand' are meat, and anything including 'pate' is pasta...normally. This takes on a whole new twist in Greece and Bulgaria where you can't even read the letters. I have never been disappointed, although I suspect that there must have been more than one occasion where the restaurant staff have taken pity on the poor British fool, and substituted something delicious for the crap that I actually ordered.
A blast from the very distant past. Based on Ebony Eyes by the Everly Brothers.The puddings are Hollands ones, frozen. Need 35 or 40 minutes steaming. Sadly don’t own a deep fat fryer, although it is tempting for some of the Indian & Middle Eastern stuff I’d like to make!
