LOL That last picture was what I was expecting too! Or at least some sort of robot decoration - wallpaper perhaps...hmmm...food looks tasty not sure about the lack of actual robots though! I love the Haiku style blog too :)
Glad you didn't disappoint, I was hoping to see a review written in haiku and the robot is just a bonus!!!
LOVE this MiMi; as the author of some of the longest posts around it's refreshing to see this starkest of contrasts!Were there no robots at all? That's just wrong. Trade Descriptions, anyone? :-)
@TheLittleWelsh - I detected no sign of any robots, but I did love the big lamp thing - very Blade Runner. And thanks!@Sarah, Maison Cupcake -Why thank you :)@Hugh Wright - *blush* Yeah, sorry, I do go off on a little ramble in most of my posts. Amazing what a bit of writer's block and laziness will do. Will try to rein myself in more in future :)
Reviews are more fun when they are done in haiku.Quicker to read too.
Amazing, that you condensed an entire review into a haiku but still managed to say everything needed is so impressive! And the picture at the end makes it!
@BecciNow I want ALL my comments to be haikus.@howtomakeamessVery kind of you to say :)
Short and sweet, Not largeLike the meatball portion!Nice snacks, better review.
Spot on review:Giant prawns but small ballsMenu of madness
Le-gen-da-ry ChatFrom the small one with no hat!Giant Prawns ATTACK...might have to work on that one...
The "What I expected" killed me!
wahahahahhahaaa this is so hilarious. You should totally do more haiku blogs! it's a TALENT!
Prawns make excellentwaiters, but lunch makes for aShort notice period
Love this review! Disappointed about lack of giant robots both at restaurant and in life in general. Recently joined twitter & have been sniggering a lot at some of your tweets (because they were funny not because I'm disturbed or something...)
Hmmm, for almost £5 quid each those giant prawns had better be of BFG proportions. Nice name, shame about the lack of actual robot.
@Chumbles - Thank you sir!@The Grubworm - I forgot how bizarre the menu was and how we needed it explained to us.@Pavel - Small one with no hat? You mean me?? I'd watch "Giant Prawns Attack".@Mer - I love that photo@catty - It's funny you should say that ...@Josordoni - Because they have lots of feelers, you mean?@Tina - Aww thanks! Who are you on Twitter, may I ask? I expect many of my followers are a little odd :)@TheFastestIndian - Not big enough for my liking but pretty big.
@Josordoni - Because they have lots of feelers, you mean?yes, just think how many plates they could balance at once!
More please. That was succinct and clear.
I meant that *I* write some of the longest reviews around! Yours are always crisp and to the point whereas I'm the self-confessed King of Ramble!
I did mean you yes,I used small under duress,it was artistic...
I am far too tired / in body, mind and spirit / to write a haiku The giant robot / hides his graceful self / from your hungry eyes
I think you might have set a trend with that!
@Josordoni - Hehe, prawny waiters@May Slow Food Kitchen - More at my new blog The Haiku Review!@Hugh Wright - See, I would say it was the other way round :)@Pavel - That is beautiful@Kavey - If you can do that when you're tired, wow@Northern Snippet - I hope so - and I want guest reviewers on the Haiku Review!
I'll definitely do a guest post for you! Sounds like fun :^D
I'm hallodarling on twitter. I always end up sounding mental on twitter as I run out of words.
@Pavel - Yes please!@Tina - Ah - cool - followed :)
Haha! Excellent. Was this related at all to GR magazine?
@Dennis K - No, but I was convinced it was! Doesn't Giant Robot US have its own cafe?@Northern Snippet - Cool! Do email me if you have a haiku review!
Hi meemalee I just visited gr/eats yesterday but was too full to actually eat anything.. haha
