Oman: runny cannelloni

Clutching our prize from the ball, we ambled to 'O Sole Mio' in Shati for our free meal. After a bit of a discussion with the waiter we ascertained our entitlement and proceeded to order. Madam's first choice starter of parma ham with figs was not available due to a shortage of figs and melon was an agreed substitute. Madam's (over-warmed under a grill) cannelloni unfortunately swam in a sea of tomato sauce and cheese while my risotto was distinctly below par. A strawberry panna cotta should have finished off the meal nicely but that also disappointed, having the consistency of that classic English dish of Bird's Angel Delight. My beer was nice.
