French Onion Soup.
Somewhere in the red light district.
I have no idea where I was, the name of the restaurant or what else happened that night, simply can't remember.
But the meal was a three course pre paid type of thing and when I sat down the first thing on the menu to be served was French Onion Soup.
I had only known French Onion Soup as a powdered packet mix used in casseroles. I was not that fond of onions and was annoyed that I was going to be served what I expected to be dirty water.
It was simply amazing. I had never and have never had anything like it.
Maybe it was because my expectations were so low. Maybe it was the fact I had been backpacking for some months and not eaten a lot of good food, maybe it was just a damn good chef who knew how to make a very decent french onion soup.
I have never tried to make it myself, but have ordered it at other restaurants and never be as impressed.
Do you have a favourite restaurant meal?
