The Starving Bachelor wandered Sam Levy’s Village, craving sustenance but unsure where it would come from. He’d already been scared shitless by the menu he’d seen at the Scud & Donkey, and the little money he had was starting to burn a meal-sized hole in his pocket.
Having walked the shopping mall from top to tail, he finally stopped at Deli.Cious, and his weary feet could carry him no further. Our tragic hero stepped into the dim interior, and his attention was immediately grabbed by the flat-screen TV on the far wall previewing the World Cup cricket match. Curious, he picked up a copy of Men’s Health from a table stacked with reading material and plopped his weary carcass in a perfect cricket-watching spot.
It took just a minute to find what he wanted on the menu – everything seemed interesting, if a little posh, but he eventually went for the hungry man’s best friend; the cheeseburger. Fifteen minutes later, and one minute from devouring the lemon wedge in his orange juice, it appeared. Sorrounded by potato wedges and a crisp mound of salad, it sat there taunting him.
A 250g grilled beef patty sat majestically atop two thick lettuce leaves and tomato slices, topped with a layer of crisp-white mozzarella cheese, all between a fresh burger roll. A little salt and pepper later, with a few sips of orange juice in between, our hero fought the monster and won, finishing it off with a flourish of potato wedge dipped in ketchup.
Burping quietly, our Bachelor paid his 85 thousand dollars and flounced off into the waning sunlight, making it to the Scud just in time for the first ball of the cricket semi-final.
