Biscato Spicy and Plain Digesta Review
I write to you midway through a two week business trip to Egypt. The lack of teaspoons is alarming. In fact, given that I'm in one of the fanciest hotels in Cairo (just next to the pyramids) their ability to produce a suitable spoon for any task is a worry. This morning at breakfast I was presented with a soup spoon to eat my little pot of yoghurt. Teaspoons are only allocated when the waiter comes to pour your coffee, and it is likely to be whisked away should you leave your table to replenish your plate from the breakfast buffet.
I would have trousered a set of eating irons by now to carry around with me however one is frequently required to pass through metal detectors to get to the simplest of objectives and I do not wish to be frisked every time I pass through the hotel reception area.
I am planning to try the breakfast tea tomorrow although I have resisted it thus far as the coffee served is so far removed from any other cup of coffee I have tried that I cannot contemplate what the tea might be like and may be disinclined to give it an honest appraisal. Also the milk served with such beverages is of the hot frothy variety which also makes me somewhat hesitant to see what it would do to the tea.
However, this in no way detracts from my overall enjoyment of the country which, like many places across the world, has it own distinctive charms and idiosyncracies. A word to your readers - bring your own supply of (plastic) teaspoons if planning to visit.
|Nicey replies: Hello again Nick,
You have of course reminded us of Wifey's trip to Cairo the other year. She didn't report any problems with the the supply of teaspoons in Egypt so maybe this is a recent and troubling issue. Anyhow thanks for the tip off.
