I’m A Baller - Chapter 67
Although it was during the peak period of meal time, the kitchen was fast in serving the dishes.
After all, it was the founder of the restaurant doing the cooking and he was only serving one table, Wang Yan’s table. Such treatment was not something ordinary people could enjoy.
The four girls politely refused the bread that was served before the meal. Even Reyi Nawu, who was the most voracious, did not dare to touch it.
Wang Yan did not care. He took a bite of the bread in the basket and found that the Grandmother Bread was the best. It was soft, fragrant, and sweet. The fillings were delicious, and the ham was fresh and firm to the bite.
Therefore, he called for the waiter, Miss Wang. She was a very pretty young lady.
“Remove the breadbasket. Just leave two pieces of Grandmother Bread for me.”
The pretty young lady smiled sweetly and did as she was told.
It was a very big plate of cold appetizer dish placed before them. The girls picked from the dish in very small amounts, taking a little from the left and a little from the right. Even after a long time, they were still not done with the dish. But Wang Yan finished everything in two mouthfuls.
No one laughed at him.
First of all, his movements were not ugly. On the contrary, there was a youthful feel in his actions.
Second, the so-called dining etiquette in Western restaurants was only used to restrain ordinary people. Even if he was just eating skewers from a street stall, Principal Wang would still have women bootlicking and telling him how suave he looked. In the company of his own family, of course Wang Yan could act in any way he pleased.
The hot starter was a blue lobster. The meat was fresh and tender, and the baked skin was very crispy. It tasted really good.
The Gillardeau oysters with blueberries had a rich flavor with every taste distinct to the buds. The taste was simply divine.
The seafood platter, on the other hand, was very ordinary, because as long as the seafood was of good quality, the taste of a dish like sashimi would not differ much regardless of where it was served.
Though similarly prepared with seafood as ingredients, the soup was different.
The French Bouillabaisse was simply amazing. Wang Yan’s request for “no tomatoes” was really a challenge for the chef.
However, Mauro clearly understood what Wang Yan meant. After removing the tomato juice, he replaced it with a dash of lemon extract. Upon taking a first bite, the sweet fragrance would linger for some time, while the zest of the fruit extract would still be faintly discernible. Perfect!
Wang Yan was excited. The System that had been quiet for a long time was finally back online.
[The distinct layers of flavors that you progressively tasted finally sparked your desire for delicacies. You have received a mysterious reward related to eating]
[A food sharing card, a single-use card]
[Share this French Bouillabaisse that you think is perfect with the four ladies and invite them to rate it]
[A 10-point system. The ratings given by the four pretty ladies will be added up, and that number will be taken as the final total score. The cost of this meal x the final total score = Your Final Reward]
[During this period, no explicit hints are allowed]
[If the pretty ladies give up on tasting the food, the score you get will be 0]
[The cost of meal will be subjected to the current amount of consumption. Additional dishes will not be counted]
So, it was actually a card with a cash reward multiplier?
The highest reward could go up to 40 times?
Wang Yan was delighted. Although he did not know how much his current spending was, it was definitely more than 5,000 no matter how what. If this amount were to be multiplied by 40 times, that would be 200,000!
It was equivalent to coming to Capital to play for 15 days. With all accommodation fees reimbursed, he could still earn 80,000.
Of course, 40 times was a little far-fetched, 30 times should be reasonable, right?
No matter how much he earned, he would still be getting money for nothing. Happy!
Wang Yan was not the least regretful for not consuming an amount that was high enough. On the contrary, he started to play a “game” in high spirits and was in an extremely good mood.
“Eh? This soup is very delicious… It costs 30,000, you should try it.”
Wang Yan pushed the bowl of soup toward Liu Li without batting an eyelid, and then stared at her expectantly.
Of course, Liu Li would not refuse him. She casually scooped up a spoonful and sent it into to her mouth quietly and civilly.
“Eh? It’s really very delicious! Wang Wang, you’re really good at selecting food to order!”
Liu Li’s eyes lit up. Wang Yan was in a good mood and asked with a smile, “Really? Out of a total of 10, how many points will you give?”
Liu Li gave her answer without a second thought, and no one knew how many points was given out of friendliness.
Wang Yan was overjoyed. Just as he was about to continue with the next step, Reyi Nawu, who was beside him, suddenly came up closer to him. She raised the spoon she was holding to indicate her eagerness to try.
“Really? Really? I want to try!”
There was really nothing to worry about…
Foodies were very cute most of the time…
Wang Yan was still relishing in his moment of happiness while Reyi Nawu, who could not wait any longer, had already sent some soup into her mouth. She pursed her lips and finally… rolled her eyes at Liu Li with disdain.
“Tsk! Six points is the max, I can’t give any more than this. Liu Li, nowadays, you seriously don’t have any principles!”
Wang Yan:（︶^︶）= Middle Finger
To be honest, if it was just Nawu alone now, Wang Yan really wanted to give her a few tight slaps on every fleshy area of her body.
She had volunteered herself so arrogantly, and yet in the end, simply left a comment of “six points is the max”. What did she want to do?
But soon after, she did a good deed. Using her spoon, she scooped a serving of soup and put it into Lin Weiwei’s mouth.
“Weiwei, you try it! ”
Lin Weiwei took a sip and tasted it carefully. She smiled and said, “It’s not as bad as you said. I think it can be a 9.”
Weiwei, you’re a Goddess!
You have pulled up the average score by leaps and bounds instantly!
Wang Yan beamed with joy. He looked at Fu Yushi, the only one left who had yet to try the soup, and urged her expectantly, “Yishi, your turn to judge.”
Fu Yushi looked at Nawu and Weiwei with a smile on her face. After being asked, she immediately shook her head and said, “I’m not getting involved.”
Wang Yan almost flipped with anger. No matter how unreliable Nawu was, at least she had given a score that barely passed. How dare you give a straight 0?!
Unleashing his marginal IQ of 79 at full force, he conjured various kinds of mean ideas in his mind within the blink of an eye.
“Little Princess, are you snubbing at the bowl of soup that I’ve just taken?”
Being called a little princess again made Fu Yushi so angry that her pretty face turned slightly red with a murderous look in her eyes.
But she could not do anything about Wang Yan, so she could only turn to Liu Li and complained, “Liu Li, your master is teasing me!”
Liu Li was attacking the salad as there was a particular quinoa in it that was very much to her liking. When she heard what Fu Yushi said, she did not even raise her head and directly retorted.
“Just let that Stinky Wang tease you for a while! Look at me, I don’t even put it to heart…”
Lin Weiwei and Reyi Nawu were bowled over with laughter. Fu Yushi glared at Liu Li fiercely. After feeling angry for a long time, she suddenly burst out laughing herself.
“The two of you are so annoying!”
Even though she scolded them, she eventually took a mouthful of soup herself.
“Eh? The taste is pretty good!”
Once the soup entered her mouth, Fu Yushi’s expression lit up.
That pair of big eyes with exquisite makeup was originally emotionless, cold and indifferent. But all of a sudden, it was lit up by the delicious soup and bloomed with the glow of joy.
“Fantastic! I can give full marks!”
As she spoke, she took another sip.
After drinking it, she realized that it was not her own soup, but Liu Li’s boyfriend’s. She suddenly felt a little embarrassed.
Wang Yan could not help but laugh and shake his head. He felt that this girl could be very cute at times. He said gently, “If you like it, you can have it. I don’t really like soup to begin with. I will just share a bowl with Liu Li.”
Fu Yushi was a little hesitant. She felt that it was not a very nice thing to do, but Lin Weiwei came closer very naturally and scooped a spoonful of soup. She smiled and said, “I’ll give you my soup too. Just don’t order anymore.”
With that, the two of them had all the French Bouillabaisse to themselves. Wang Yan went over to Liu Li’s side and for a spoonful of the soup. With all kinds of indirect exchanging here and there, they ended up having a great time.
Everyone was happy.
