Luka

今日は、お友達お2人ととても久しぶりに「Luka」でランチをご一緒しました。「Luka」のメニューはほとんど炭水化物(パスタかピッツァ)で前菜もサラダ1種類しかないので、炭水化物を控えておられるお友達とは行けないのです。炭水化物が目の敵にされている今日なので、もう少し前菜類があると嬉しいのですが。

I had lunch at “Luka” with 2 friends. The menu here is almost all carbohydrate (pasta and pizza) and there isn’t any starter except a salad so I cannot go there with friends who are trying to cut down on carbohydrates. It would help if they had more starters.

お2人のうちお1人が平日はほとんどお仕事でなかなかランチをご一緒出来ないので、職場の近くでサクッとランチをしましょうということでタンジョンパガーのお店を選んだのですが、その方、約束の時間を15分過ぎてもご連絡がなかったのでラインでメッセージしてみたら、な、な、なんと、ランチのことを忘れておられ、しかも早い時間にお弁当を召し上がっていたそうで(笑)、すぐに来てくださいましたが食事はできず、コーヒーを飲みながらおしゃべりだけご一緒しました。わたしもいつそんなことをやらかすかわらならいので(1度だけ日にちを間違えていて、ご連絡いただいて慌てて家を出たということがありました)、人ごととは思えない(笑)。そして、他のお友達にこういうことが起きると(しかも、とてもお若い)、なぜかちょっと安心(笑)。

One of the friends works most days during the week so we decided to have a quick lunch near her office, but she hadn’t arrived when it was 15 minutes after the arranged time so we sent a message to her and found out she’d forgotten! And she’d already eaten her lunch box! She came as soon as she realised our lunch appointment but she wasn’t able to eat anything, so she just had a cup of coffee and chatted with us while we had our lunch. I have once got the day wrong myself and didn’t realise it until I had a message from a friend, fortunately the restaurant was close to where I was so I wasn’t too late. I feel I can make such a mistake any time, I’m always worried about it because I seem to be getting more and more forgetful.

ということで、食事をしたのは2人だけでもうお1人はイカスミパスタを召し上がりたいとおっしゃっていたので、前菜にサラダをシェアーしてメインは各自オーダーしました。わたしは、アマトリチャーナ。

So, only 2 of us had lunch here and the other friend wanted to have Squid Ink pasta so we shared a salad to start with but ordered the main each. I had Amatriciana.

味が濃いめなのでソースは余りましたが、ピリ辛で、パスタもアルデンテで美味しかったです。

I left quite a lot of the sauce because it was strongly seasoned but I enjoyed what I had – it was a little spicy and the pasta was al dente, very good.
