SPEAK EASY, AND LIFE BOSS SUCKS AT CHESS

So I am a dumbass. I sprained my ankle during basketball because I was too cheap to buy proper basketball shoes. So yeah, I am a dumbass.

How does that relate to this post? Well, because I sprained my ankle we could not go far for dinner. But life boss wanted to eat something nice, so I said why not check out this bar / restaurant called Speak Easy? I went here once 3 – 4 years ago when I just moved into Tai Wai. I had positive memories of this place so yeah why not try again right?

Plus I was craving a GUINNESS BAD!!

Cozy little bar

So cozy.

We had some nacho cravings (have been writing a lot about nachos lately) so we decided to try out the nachos. The waiter says its pretty cool. So okay let’s give it a try.

Here’s what the nachos looked like:

Doesn’t look too appetizing huh?

If you think the nachos don’t look appetizing you are absolutely right. They were not appetizing.  Did people just forget how to make good nachos? The nachos didn’t have much sauce, not enough cheese, not enough flavor.

At one we point we thought we were eating a bland pizza. Yeah not impressed sorry people. Because the nachos was so shit we decided to order more food – yes I know that doesn’t make any f*cking sense at all.

I ordered the pork spaghetti and life boss ordered a burger.

What.

Life boss and burger? the hellllll is going on??

Because there was a bit of a wait for the additional food, I decided to play chinese chess with life boss.

Game of chess with Life Boss

Here’s a some fun facts about life boss:

  • she does not know how to play chinese chess
  • she does not know how to read the characters on the chinese chess
  • for the ones she can read, she doesn’t know what it stands for and how they move
  • she believes I was a bad teacher
  • I owned her in chinese chess
  • I won the game
  • Life boss sucks at games in general

After annihilating her in chinese chess, to her relief the food finally came. But it was okay, as I beat her in 3 moves. Anyways, on to the food.

My pork spaghetti was pretty good.  But we could have made this shit at home. Nothing special.

Burger

Life boss’ burger. She said it tasted really weird. Like tasted very asian. But still tasted good.

Why is Asian taste weird huh? What are you trying to say!?!?

Our final verdict of this place?

Come for the drinks. Leave everything else to fate.

Oh and I will also come here to play cheese with life boss so I can dominate her in this game.
