06 Nov Restaurant Food Pet Peeves
A while ago I blogged about how tiny details can ruin an otherwise enjoyable restaurant meal. I must have struck a nerve since many people commented — at length. One commenter, Lisa, got so het up she expanded the topic and emailed me her pet peeves about sub-par restaurant food. Even in the absence of leaking teapots and dirty silverware, this opinionated diner hates being served underdone french fries, raw toast and overcooked frozen vegetables (emphasis hers).
I can tolerate anemic bread, providing I get properly scrambled eggs, not a runny mess or rubbery minced omelet.
If an edible oil product makes its way onto my dessert? Well, I’m not likely to return for the commercial version of Dream Whip, am I? And don’t get me started on tinned pie fillings.
I know I’m not alone in my expectations for good, fresh, properly prepared food. So indulge me. What sort of things arriving on your plate will turn you off a restaurant?
