Living just off of 15th Avenue, Kenny and I find ourselves at Twenty-Two Doors quite often. Tonight, Kenny had a hankering for their burger (apparently snowboarding makes him crave beef), so we went there for dinner upon arriving home from Whistler. Their menu changes relatively often (more often than the website gets updated, it seems), and at certain times it seems to have more chickentarian* options than others. Tonight there were only two I hadn’t tried: a chicken dish and the veggie lasagne. I am generally loath to order chicken when I dine out, as it is often either dull or just as easily made at home. I asked our waiter, who seemed new, for some advice.
Me: How is the lasagne?
Waiter: The vegetarian lasagne? I haven’t tried it – I’m not a vegetarian. But I’ve seen it – it looks good.
Me: Okay, well, I’m not a vegetarian either, but I’ll try it.
I hadn’t realized that non-vegetarians couldn’t eat vegetables. I’ll have to file that one away.
Also, when Kenny and I were in Whistler this weekend, we saw a new restaurant/bar in the Village called 21 Steps. And I wondered: when one ascends 21 steps, does she find 22 doors at the top?
* Reminder to self: should write a blog entry defining this term at some point.
