April 20, 2022, Nuuk Hotel
We had pizza for meryenda kaya I was still busog at dinner time. If I skip dinner naman, baka maya-maya gutom na uli ako.
We were tired and not in the mood to eat but we had to, baka magutom kami in the middle of the night and the hotel doesn’t have room service.
I could feel the lack of enthusiasm among us to dine. We’re all tired and grouchy.
Nuuk has one restaurant onsite, Ilulli.
We met Nuuk’s executive vice president, Naeem Mahomed, the husband of Katleya Nielsen, the daughter of the property’s owners. Naeem is a British National. He is very hands-on in managing this hotel.
They have a-la-carte dinner menu from 6 pm to 9 om only.
A small serving of mushroom soup for Edmund
Pumpkin soup for Oyen, served in a big bowl shaped like a spoon. Not a fan of the choice of serving bowl.
Edmund ordered a salad.
Australian rib-eye, pomme puree, market vegetables, oyster mushrooms, herb cream sauce.
Oyen’s a combination of steak and prawns
Chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream for Oyen
Snall cup of watermelon sorbet for me P100+
All for her, and her baby.
I didn’t enjoy our dinner completely. There was an hour of intense discussion between the father and daughter about work. I just sat down there quietly listening and ready to be the referee. One disadvantage of running a family business is most of the time, what could have been a relaxing meal with family members becomes a board meeting. And as in all board meetings, there are disagreements of ideas.
