I think it actually means when you order a meal it comes with free side dish
What I meant was half the meals the people I will be going with, they will be eating at restaurants and coffee shops :cry:

With a separate price for each item on the menu.

People use alacarte a lot to describe gourmet food...

I was just on the Techni-ice website to campare prices with those being sold on ebay.

http://www.techniice.com/english/camper_special.asp

I alredy have the 60ltr (I paid $119 delivered-direct from the company) but I now want the 100 litre. They have some amazing specials at the moment for Easter.

100 litre $145 plus $18 postage to SA. Not bad - I haven't seen one that cheap on ebay yet!

BTW I do not work for Techni-Ice at all..It looks like an endorement doesn't it? :shock:
Any man, in the right situation, is capable of murder. But not any man is capable of being a good camper. So, murder and camping are not as similar as you might think.

Well there you go!! I thought it meant "off the cart" where you chose your menu meal and then chose which side dishes from a set range which, I assumed was originally bought around on a trolley.

Yeah my description wasn't exactly easy to understand.

The amount of times people say alacarte to mean its good food is amazing.

There you go...in all my years cooking I'd never heard the side dish meaning.

Sorry for taking this OT

My sister got a 50l for $47, and a 60l for $51, we are picking them up on Thursday on our way to Burleigh so the handling fee is $10 a eski, $118 is a pretty good deal. And the ribbing I'm going to get is priceless!! :cry:
