so tres cool. Were the escargot heavily done in garlic? That's about the only way that they taste good, and they have to be fresh. Otherwise it's rubbery....I'm a dragon too with little patience--but then you know that already!

It was rubbery and they did use garlic, but they put some sort of nasty cheese and it was just gross. I am willing to give it another try, since I did try it at Steak & Ale.
