So, El 3atal and I were with the Beans eating out when we came across this menu. The errors in the English menu are numerous, but hard to see with my none-too-steady cell-phone hand. But, this one was so funny to me. If you can read this (sorry for the poor photo quality), you’ll see “The traditional way of serving chili over spaghetti with choice of toppings.”
So, again I ask, WHERE is it a tradition to put chili on spaghetti? Sauce, yes. Chili… not so much.
In my home, the tradition is to put chili in a bowl and serve it with crackers. It is, after all, a hearty soup… Even on hot dogs or fries doesn’t raise an eyebrow, but on spaghetti? I guess to each people their own traditions.
Now, amusement aside, the menu came from the new Chili Ways that opened near the Dead Sea. And, kudos (big time) to the management. The food was not bad and the service was surprisingly good. I’d recommend it as an affordable option in the Dead Sea area. Oh, and they have a wee play area to keep this kids busy, an extra unexpected bonus. Good job, Chili Ways, although I skipped the local tradition and had a burger instead…
