After walking around downtown and shopping every level of the Plaza Singapura, David and I decided to grab some refreshment, cool off and relax. One of the times he conducted training in Singapore, it was at the Rendezvous Hotel.
It’s a beautiful hotel and in the middle of the courtyard is this cool, large, spinning marble ball.
When you look up, you see this.
When you look down, this.
Inside, we saw this.
But this was, by far, my favorite thing at the Rendezvous Hotel.
Beer and pizza go together like rama lama lama ke ding a de dinga a dong. And just because you are in a tropical location doesn’t change that fact.
I’m going to put it all out here and say that my favorite restaurant in Suva, Fiji is The Bad Dog Cafe.
The food is great, service friendly and it won’t break the bank. This was the first place we went to eat on this trip. We’ll undoubtedly make many more visits before we head home.
In addition to water, Fiji produces beer. It’s pretty good, quite drinkable and goes great with the fabu pizzas at the Bad Dog.
This is a Campagnola pizza that we ordered on our second visit. It’s loaded with chicken, onions, black olives and fresh basil. Our first visit we ordered the Mexicali which has the usual suspects adorning it including my absolute favorite – cilantro!
Each pizza comes with a little dish of sauce in the middle of it. I have no idea what it is but it is AMAZING. It’s sweet and tart and although it’s cool in temperature, it has a latent heat that makes you need and extra beer when you are done. I love it.
The pizzas are not huge, maybe 10 inches, but they are the perfect size to leave you very satisfied and not overly full. We save overly full for the many Indian restaurants here.
We give four thumbs up to the Bad Dog Cafe. Can’t wait to visit again!
I was going through some old email yesterday and came across this entry that I made into a Miller Lite commercial several years ago. It was when they had the Men of the Square Table and were looking to seat another man at the table.
I think beer companies get it wrong. Why only men? Women drink beer, too, and I think they are overlooking a whole demographic that could be lucrative for them. I am, after all, the one who usually purchases the beer in our house.
Monday Night Football has it wrong, too. Their commercial says that I’m the only guy who matters on Monday night. Really? Am I a guy and someone just didn’t tell me?
Anyway, here’s my entry into the commercial contestant. Can’t think why they never called me.
