Profile in Courage: Iceland’s President Denounces Pineapple As a Pizza Topping | Foreign Policy
Brave statement:

Mér finnst ananas góður, bara ekki á pítsu. Ég get ekki sett lög sem banna fólki að setja ananas á pítsuna sína. Mér finnst gott að hafa ekki þau völd. Forsetar eiga ekki að hafa alræðisvald. Ég myndi ekki vilja gegna þessa embætti ef ég gæti sett lög sem bönnuðu það sem mér mislíkar. Ég myndi ekki vilja búa í þannig landi. Ég mæli með fiskmeti á pítsu.

I like pineapples, just not on pizza. I do not have the power to make laws which forbid people to put pineapples on their pizza. I am glad that I do not hold such power. Presidents should not have unlimited power. I would not want to hold this position if I could pass laws forbidding that which I don´t like. I would not want to live in such a country. For pizzas, I recommend seafood.

Lotus Chinese Floating Restaurant - Docklands, London - Chinese Restaurants
"What could have been an excellent dining experience (good food, wonderful location) spoiled by dismal service and unhelpful staff. Having called ahead and been told that there was no need to book... we had to flag down a waiter after twenty minutes for our order to be taken... no effort to serve the right dish to the right person... painfully obvious that our main order was not only late but had in fact been lost... At no point did any of the staff we dealt with show any sign of genuine concern... I would not recommend the Lotus."

As one of the other people in the group, I can confirm that bradders_in_E14 captures the experience rather well, and completely accurately.
