I'm sure that all restaurants have had one of those"entree plus" experiences. What interests me most is what occurs after alien matter is discovered in the chow. Here are a few favorites that I've personally experienced.
The Black Pot Restaurant
Drew and I had the breakfast buffet as a Sunday Treat. There was everything on that buffet, and I mean everything. Drew quickly piled his plate and began noshing. I lifted a bite of scrambled egg only to discover an entire, though dead, cricket. mmmm We showed our waitress, they checked the eggs and found more crickets. We told all the tables around us what I found but they continued eating. Apparently cricket eating was not frowned upon at The Black Pot. The manager was summoned, we were given our breakfast free, gee thanks.
Response time was a bit slow, actions were appropriate to earn them a nine,9.
Drew, Lean,me,Drew's important customers. 1492 is a very expensive posh restaurant so you assume things will be perfect. The place was full of flies buzzing all around, everywhere. One dove straight into Lean's chocolate milk. We showed the waiter, he took it away and said, " No extra charge". Nothing was done at all. Our bill was around $500.00 and they did nothing at all! Don't these people realize Columbus would not have stood for such shoddy fly deliberation?
They don't even get a rating but the joke's on them they are out of business now.
The Milton Hotel Restaurant
Once again We are having breakfast. We order, everything is lovely, the service is awesome. We get our food and Drew discovers a gigantic hair on his bacon. This thing was huge and slightly wavy eww. I couldn't eat bacon for weeks thinking about how that disgusting hair got on there.eww. The waiter was summoned and we were given our breakfast free, the staff looked convincingly horrified. They get a perfect ten for their response time and wrap up.
The Avocado Garden Restaurant
This is slightly different but I still feel like ranting so I'm including it. So while we are celebrating my niece getting her driver's license the waitress drops a bottle of beer on the table, it empties entirely into my lap. I screech, she picks it up, gets another beer and acts like nothing happened.
Of course I tell her, "you poured a beer in my lap" , "yes, yes I'm so sorry" she continues on. Me again, "you poured a beer in my lap" She disappears then comes back and says they will pay for any dry cleaning. "I'm wearing jeans, I don't dry clean jeans. You poured a beer in my lap" The manager is summoned and restates that they will pay my dry cleaning bill. WTF is that about, I have a lap full of beer and not even an apology or free dessert?
They get a -4 rating.
Yes, I know exactly what you are thinking. Why can't I ever find a 2 karat diamond in my Asian stir fry? You just can't.
