The night out


Chocolatini at Morton's
Originally uploaded by Ms. Marly.

While the martinis at Morton's are very, very good indeed --- as Abigael's hearty endorsement of the chocolate martini went, it's a meal in itself! ---

And their steak sandwiches are also very, very tasty --- slices of good steak oozing sweet juices and fresh-baked bread at once crisp on the crust and soft within ---

And of course the conversation with cour marly was scintillating, as usual ---

Having a hearty combination of the above without any water to wash it down, means that several hours later, I'm ready to pull a Cinderella and pack it in for the night, even if Zouk's great reopening party hasn't quite gotten off the ground yet.

Zouk really brings them all in. Sitting along the road outside, waiting for my friends to arrive, I was greeted by intermittent waves of English, Singlish, Hokkien, Cantonese and Mandarin going by, not to mention a couple of other Asian and European languages I didn't recognise. The inadvertently funniest moment was when two salarymen men in their fifties --- one local, one Caucasian and probably foreign --- walked by, and upon seeing the packed traffic and club lines spilling onto the street, the latter said, "What's all this? What's going on?" in a genuinely perplexed tone. Several minutes later, they came back, heading in the opposite direction and looking as if they hadn't quite found what they were looking for.

The verdict on the new Zouk decor:
  • Me: It's very white, very bright. You can see everything going on inside. How surreal.
  • Beeker: It looks like Zouk KL, yo.
  • Unnamed source: The white exterior pieces look like what you see at the dentist --- ah, like molars.
  • Other unnamed source: Nah, it looks like a single butt cheek.
Your imaginativeness may vary.

I was just thinking the same on the trip back - water would have helped. But hey, at least you lasted longer that I did! Maybe next time, just two martinis.... (yarite).

a brand new zouk... man... where is the zouk of my misspent youth?!? (actually I've only been there no more than 10 times)

Heh... I guess you have to reinvent now that MOS is moving into town. Plus those IRs... that's a huge challenge

cour marly > There is no saying no to a chocolate martini.

PMG > Yeah, but Zouk is home-grown talent!

There is one place where you can refuse a chocolate martini - MENOTTI.

BAD BAD BAD!

The chocolate refers to an equivalent of Milo powder that is stired into the martini mix.

BAD BAD BAD!
