Dinner – 1 Each, some assembly required

The other day I found myself wandering around the restaurant and bar street of Suva, Fiji  on a lazy Sunday afternoon after diving, and one of the places I saw was the Bad Dog Cafe.  The place was closed but looked interesting so I stopped to look at the menu on the window and noticed…
