A few days ago, hubby and I went out on the prowl with BIL (brother in law) for a good time. After buying a French press (as seen on instagram), we wandered into a hookah bar and lounge. If you aren’t familiar with hookah, it is the tall standing water pipe through which you smoke concentrated tobacco that is flavored with syrup (usually fruit flavored). It is very popular in the middle east, and is rising in fame in the states. I actually owned one state side, but I was never good at packing the bowl.
Anyway, we wandered into the lounge and settled on a green apple/mint blend hookah experience… And began to peruse the drinks and snacks.
I was so excited when hubby said I could pick anything I wanted- prices be damned! If you haven’t noticed from hints and comments I’ve been dropping… We are going through a very very difficult time right now (the two verys are absolutely warranted), and this outing was an attempt to unwind. Anyway, we all settled on a classic cappuccino. After waiting nearly 10 minutes (were they roasting the beans right now?), they came back… With this.
Based on my vast coffee experiences, I immediately deduced this to actually be a standard coffee with milk. It was, at least, a dark roast. No foam to be had at all. I looked first to my hubby, then to my BIL…
Neither seemed to notice or care about this travesty…
This 6TL lie!
I then asked hubby, who would also indulge in the occasional cappuccino with me in the past, and whispered my disappointment.
What do you expect? It’s Turkey
Well, for 6TL I expect a hell of a lot more! We commiserated with each other that everything on this list is likely the same coffee with milk, and moved on to our board games.
I mean, I can’t complain too much I suppose. The hookah was very good, the lokum was delightful, and the service was on point (changing coals and whatnot). Even better, the cafe wasn’t bustling with rowdy people, and there was an appropriate ratio of men and women to make the setting comfortable. All in all, it was a fun night…
But leave the coffee to me.
