Have lunch at one of the great old reputable restaurants (fish, barbecued meat, chicken, or vegetarian) — (it is not one restaurant that serves all kinds of food, but they are all mostly specialized restaurants, so it is preferable to brainstorm and make your choice, and upon this choice, I will escort you to the suitable restaurant that serves the type of food you crave). For example, there’s one restaurant famous for serving fish, but their chickens are not the best and vice versa).
