The waitress offered us some drinks when we were waiting for our food to come. I asked her for a glass of iced lemon tea, while Mom ordered herself a glass of Mint Lime and Dad ordered a glass of iced tea. Do take note that when you eat something greasy and full of fat, don't order yourself a glass of milkshake or coke, a glass of iced tea will suffice. If you drink any kind of drinks that contains milk after you eat fatty food, the amount of fat in your body will increase rapidly. You don't want that to happen, do you? Well, if you do, I assume that you're currently wanting to gain a few pounds, or you might be a sumo wrestler.

After a long wait, our food finally arrived. Mom ordered herself a plate of pasta with tomato sauce. Garnished with well-cooked broccoli and cheese, Mom's lunch tasted fantastic. I took a bite of Mom's order and I simply love the pasta. I was rather thick and full of flavor from the tomato sauce. I was going to finish her plate when she told me that she couldn't finish it because she was full, but she forbid me by saying that I might get stomachache from eating too much later on. Glad I did what she told me to do.
Scaloppine de vitello o di pollo ai funghi was the name of my dish. Translated, it was a well-cooked veal escalope smothered with mushroom sauce, and garnished with either rosemary or mashed potatoes. I asked for some french fries instead. I didn't know what "veal escalope" means, so I had to look it up in Google. It turned out that what I ate for lunch was a thin meat, all meat and no fat. It was a delicious Italian cuisine, not to mention it was coated with a glassful of great mushroom sauce as well. I'm not fond of mushroom, but I eventually finished the whole dish. Well, not literary, because I left some sauce and a few sticks of french fries. Anyhow, I'm looking forward to go back to this Italian restaurant for its tray of delicious cuisine, someday in the future!
