Welcome back, friends. Our next day in Caloundra brought a lunch date that We had long been anticipating. A reservation at The Spirit House was made more than a month before! This place is amazing…We walked through a bamboo garden before getting to the restaurant/cooking school set amidst pagodas for private dining and a few ponds. Some photos to illustrate:
We were led to Our table next to the water and the dining experience began.
The wait staff was very attentive and We were not kept waiting for anything. We all talked about the menu options, but in the end the food was ordered by Our hosts and We relaxed with a glass of wine.
First to come out was the
I forgot to take photos until We had almost eaten it all! 🙂 The cuttlefish salad was so amazing, but so were the other dishes. I had never eaten any of that before.
The main dishes came out next and were truly a treat.
and the one that kinda freaked me out even though it was fantastic:
Yes, that’s a whole fish.
Sometime during the meal, I had to go to the bathroom and this is what I found. Take a moment to examine the sink/toilet situation…
You wash your hands in the sink and the water fills the tank and is used to flush the toilet!! Suh.cool. I want one (CLICK HERE). Cool, but not cool enough to keep my attention long with all the yum waiting back on the table.
The food, the wine, and most of all, the company came together to make for an astoundingly lovely experience CLICK HERE for the menu. The food was delicious and quite the learning experience 🙂 When leaving, We took some more photos ❤ We truly are an attractive bunch.
Yes folks, those are bamboo canes the Boys have…and Im afraid They know how to use them The lovely lady got away from hers fast enough to get out her camera and catch me resisting.
Like I said, a relaxing lunch 🙂 On the way back to the house, We stopped to pick up the items I would need to make sushi by myself for the very.first.time.
