Nicole and I had a simple plan last night: get dinner, see Iron Man. After some debate we decided to try Malay Satay Hut. My morning bus route goes about a block away from the place and I’ve been meaning to try it forever because it has a great rep. We pulled up around 8 and saw that it was closed. Closer investigation showed that it was out of action due to a kitchen remodel. We sat in the parking lot for a few minutes, trying to figure out where to go instead. While we were waiting three more groups of people came to dine at the Satay Hut and left disappointed. We’ll have to go back when it reopens.
We ended up at Shilla, a Korean place on Denny that we hadn’t been to in a long time. We got beef and scallop BBQ and cooked it at our table. It was very tasty, but we didn’t get over to the over to the movie theater until 10. The 10:15 show of Iron Man sold out as I was walking up to the counter. So no satay and no Iron Man but not a total wash.
Today Nik went out to get a new garbage disposal. The plan was that she’d stop off at Matt’s Famous Chili Dogs in Georgetown and bring back lunch while I did the dishes in preparation for the installation. Nicole stopped by and found Matt’s was closed. They are also doing a remodel! What the hell? Is it the season to remodel restaurants or what?
Thumbs up on Iron Man. RDJr. is fun to watch.
I don’t get why people love Malay Satay Hut so much. I have friends that just RAVE about how good it is. When I ate there, my thoughts were mostly along the lines of, “meh. it’s okay.”
