450 + tax = 468 ; 468 + tip = I guess I might as well provision 500 ; The parcel of eclairs to take back home will be over and above this. Cool, ATM withdrawl completed. Any further discount will be welcomed.

If I remember correctly, when the continental breakfast discussion started, the word "bacon" was very prominently mentioned.

Please request Bosco to add "bacon" to the menu from his side as a complimentary side dish but after the discount is finalised.

Am I correct in assuming this to be a set-menu and not a buffet?

20 may not be the attendance that can be generated ... 10 may be more appropriate.

I am still keen on it even if it is 6 of us (hillram, hyd_traveller and silverwood).

Had to drop off RR last night for his flight and slept late. Just woke up and seeing this thread full of action!

I was tentative for this meet and will have to drop off as I have to get some work done on the car.

Hi,

I am out as I have to go to school at that time.

Should it not be Rosti or Roesti? Traditionally these are pan fried but may be baked too.

Sausages are different from bacon. Sausages are made by stuffing ground meat (pork or beef) into tubes (intestines). Bacon on the other hand is strips of meat from the belly or back of pigs which is cured with salt. The bacon may then be dried, boiled or smoked.

Cheers,

Ofen Meet on Saturday, the 19th of June, 2010 at 8:30 am happened.

This was a genuine Hyderabad TBHP meet as opposed to 2 people bumping into each other at a paan-dabba and calling it a TBHP meet (RR - that was one hell of a good observation and comment from you).

Ram and me met up at mutually-agreed time of 9am sharp. He was already there when I reached at 8:59am.

So it was him, me and my younger son.

Ofen starts at 9:30am so we whiled away a little time before entering the premises at 9:10am.

Lo & behold, many people starting trooping in at 9:15am onwards. At 9:30am, I counted 3 tables occupied.

We ordered 1 plate waffle (119) and the 3 of us shared the 4 pieces, 2 spanish omelettes (170 each), 1 masala omelette (99) , 1 plate chicken ham (60), 1 plate chicken sausage (60), 1 cheese croissant (27.50) and 1 hot chocolate (50). Damages including tax came to 786.

Bacon rashers were not available.

They also have a 4 course breakfast priced at 199 which includes fresh fruit, egg, muffin, etc.

Ram, we will do it again ...
