Had my first taste of honest-to-goodness American diner (?) food in three years. Just around the corner and within walking distance was Perkins. It was still rush hour so I was glad we didn’t have to drive over but I found it funny we were the only ones on the sidewalks. Cars everywhere and no public transport in sight. First time for me to eat at Perkins which apparently is found in many parts of North America though I’d never ever heard of them when I was in DC.
My god, I miss these prices!
The steak was a bit dry but some A1 sauce took care of that. Didn’t expect much from a $12.00 steak meal but to be honest it was better value for price than most steaks I’ve had in the Netherlands. Also had my first baked potato, onion rings, and sweet tea (!) in I can’t remember how long. I also couldn’t stop eating off of my partner’s seafood plate I didn’t even think of how I looked from his parent’s point of view, or the other diners for that matter. Oh well, day one complete.
Next stop, IHOP!
