I ordered steak and a mixed salad. This is how it goes. If you wanted mashed potatoes with the steak, you should have ordered mashed potatoes. That's fine by me, because most of the vegetables they serve with meals in US restaraunts are things I really don't want to eat.
And how about that mixed salad? String beans and corn? No salad dressing? I liked it. They had olive oil if you wanted it on your salad, but I was happy to eat it just like this.
