Regular customers

“What do you wanna eat today?”

In the last month, it keeps happening that on the one hand we have no ideas, and on the other we both silently hope that one of us will propose Gad (Jadh).

We were happy to discover it has become our favorite restaurant. After our last visit, however, we realized that our frequent visits did not go unnoticed.

As we entered and went up to the 1st floor, which is reserved for families, I headed to wash my hands in the restroom. During this time, Tamer was already at the reception desk, giving out our order, which remains more or less the same on every occasion.

The waiter wrote the number 5 next to the order on his own and said that the food would be brought to our usual booth.

On my way back from the restroom, I stepped into our usual booth, which was to our delight vacant at the time, and Tamer was already waiting for me at the table. With a smile on his face, he told me about the short exchange with the waiter. We both thought how nice the whole situation turned out to be, so we were looking forward to our lunch even more.

Another surprise followed, when they brought us an extra salad! I probably don’t need to point out further that “our” restaurant is now surely winning first place by far as a favorite location to enjoy specialties of the Arabian Peninsula.

Such little things can really brighten one’s day, not much is necessary sometimes. Don’t you think so?
