Alphabet Dating – U
…I wasn’t prepared to go Up anywhere. And I wasn’t prepared to go Underwater. The budget unfortunately didn’t stretch to a holiday in the USA so we had to make do with a dinner date at a USA themed restaurant.
We decided to pay a visit to Friendly Phil’s – an American inspired diner. Sadly not one like where Monica from Friends worked (with the rollerskates and singing) but a really nice place nonetheless!
Friendly Phil’s serves all the typical American favourites – burgers, hotdogs, mac n cheese, wings…
We found a good Groupon deal that gave us a burger of choice each, a side of choice (fries obviously!) and a milkshake. Sounds like your typical fast food kind of fare but it was alot tastier and much better quality.
What made the date a little more USA A-OK was that our waitress was actually American! We didn’t ask her about it but we have since been back and have been served by English people, so we know it wasn’t just a gimmick.
I will definitely be returning to Friendly Phil’s (infact I already have several times) but its given us a hankering for a USA road trip… so you never know, if we do alphabet dating again we could be in the USA for real next time ‘U’ rolls around!
