Darrin surprised me tonight and took me to a sit down restaurant. Normally to me a sit down restaurant is like Denny’s or Hometown Buffet or China Town Buffet or well, anywhere that doesn’t have a drive-thru.
So we went to Los Molcajetes Restaurant over on Brundage Lane in Bakersfield, CA. I’d never been there before but we’ve passed it maybe a thousand times since we’ve been in Bakersfield.
First of all, I’m a very picky eater. That means Mexican food is usually one of those foods that I gotta be careful with because if I don’t ask exactly what I’m getting I’m gonna get everything I don’t want. I absolutely detest the taste of onions, bell peppers, any kind of hot sauce, sour cream and avocado (or guacamole). I ordered a ground beef burrito and specifically mentioned no onions, bell peppers, avocado or sour cream since those 4 ingredients were in the pictures near the burritos. I just wanted to make sure I didn’t get those.
Darrin ordered shredded beef enchiladas. I don’t know how his food was but as soon as I put the first bite into my mouth the first thing that I said was “wow, it’s too salty”. I’m not very big on salt either lol. It’s a good thing too because if I had put salt on my food I would’ve been pissed because of the salt overload.
Darrin ordered an iced tea for his drink and he was complaining that it was too weak, he even had me taste it (pre-sweetened). I didn’t really notice. I would’ve probably noticed more if it had been sweetened first. I’m not a huge fan of iced tea without sugar or equal in it. After his 2nd glass was brought to him and he sweetened it, the waiter came back and he told him how weak it was and the waiter said “oh well we have stronger” which was a lie, he brought back another glass of iced tea that looked darker but Darrin said it was the same. He also brought a glass filled with ice lol. Who asked for that?
Besides the salt overload and the weak tea it was a pretty decent meal. I can’t say I will be begging to go back anytime soon though. But I guess when someone takes you to dinner you can’t complain especially when I am broke lol.
Oh one more thing, I was so full and when we went to the cashier at the end I was being stupid and asked where the vomitorium was (because I was full, not because it wasn’t good) and the cashier gave me a blank stare. She said what’s that? I said “what’s a vomitorium?” She said yeah. I was like damn are you gonna make me explain my stupid jokes? Gawd, I really hate it when people don’t get my humor. I told her it was from the roman days and she asked what it was for and I said well, er um… vomiting. She then pointed to the bathroom and said it’s there lol. I then had to say “I was joking” and she said oh lol. Oy vey!
