Chapter 106: Lamb Chops, Chips and Peas – Dubai Style



Many years later, I went to Dubai for a few days.  My friend Mohammed took me to lunch at a restaurant on the road to Abu Dhabi.

The speciality of the restaurant was lamb chops.  For a normal serving one received about half a dozen. 

Having eaten and enjoyed my half dozen, plus the chips and peas,  Mohammed insisted that I have another helping.  The trouble with Arabs when they are offering largesse, is that you cannot stop them.  Protestations do not work and I had to accept another half dozen chops.  Fortunately, they were perfect and, slowly, I managed to dispose of them all without any discomfort.

One remembers meals like that.
