Carlton food critic, moi

[Thursday] While I want no part of it at the moment, here are my reflections on the Hotel Carlton food in its two restaurants:
Fantastique: Fresh-pureed pineapple juice, stir-fried vegetables (cooked “Chinese way” is the menu description), chocolate desserts of all kinds, fresh (but rock-hard) rolls and butter, hot Malagasy tea, scrambled fresh eggs (the smiling lady who makes them in a wok says, “Oui Monsieur, cooked well” every time she sees me)
Maybemanana: Coffee, so strong it’s served in half-size cups
Nowaymanana: Duck paté, liver paté, zebu that is not well done, warm/room-temperature milk on cereal
