Veal Brisket (main course).

In general, the impressions of dry soldering with such a menu are mostly positive. Very nutritious, tasty and moderately diverse. A portion of the main dish, veal brisket, is quite large, as for one person. In all the main dishes, I did not like the distinct taste of some chemistry, obviously preservatives. Of course, you can endure a couple of times, but if you eat continuously for several days, or even a week, this taste will most likely begin to annoy.
