Worthy Calories

“It would be WORTH IT!” I was repeatedly told, but by the time we arrived at Vieux Chalet I had already suffered from Shaken Baby Syndrome from all the lubaks on the road. Luckily, the food was as fantastic as endorsed. Only meal sets were available, and we snootily assumed that the mandate was borne when they noticed people coming in for a tiny cup of coffee, only to take Instagram photos for hours. The interiors were great and would indeed be very tempting for social medialization. On a somehow related and equally nasty note, I find that one of the red flags that a restaurant serves expensive, crappy food is when there’s a cute quotation written in cursive, neon lights, hoisted on a wall of plastic grass.

I don’t remember what these were called but these are the food in the set:

Of course, we ended up just wrapping most of the food. The desserts also came as a set, so we hastily ate the ice cream from each dish and took the rest home. Willing to go back, will even drive this time, as long as there’s someone to share the set with. Or, you know what, it’s 2022, I’m used to eating alone most of the time, I’ll go there by myself and order an entire motherfucking set for myself!
