It seems that many restaurants in town figured out a clever, sneaky way of charging us more. Instead of turning off their customers by actually raising prices, they downgrade the quality of dishes served and shortchange us on the ingredients that cost the most:
It tastes even worse than it looks:
The year is not yet over, but I am convinced that I won’t find a more tasteless salad than this. And at a cost of $10, I would rather have 1.5 pour overs at Blue Bottle.
Meet Joe & Juice’s signature treat – Toastless, i.e. 100% tasteless avocado toast. I challenge you to do a blind tasting and see if you can tell what it is. I seriously doubt you will be able to.
– restaurants that care so much about interior design and presentation but serve mediocre tasting food.
– restaurants that get high ratings and raving Yelp reviews for no reason.
– restaurants where patrons act like they are in heaven, again – for no reason.
By the way, I haven’t tried it yet, so I am talking totally out of my ass.
There are well over 1000 restaurants in San Francisco and…. they all suck regardless of how many Yelp stars or Michelin stars they get, except maybe a few exceptions.
Every trip to yet another “hot” spot is a consistent disappointment. The same minimal, sterile, modern decor, hipster-douche clientele, ultra bland, oily and way overpriced and over-hyped food. My new resolution is to stop expecting anything during my future trips to any local dining establishments. After all, they as that he who has no expectations cannot be disappointed.
Last night was yet another gourmet fiasco. How do you make chicken wings and salmon skin taste exactly the same – like an oily styrofoam? – Why rape trout with tons of salt and grease? And how did I earn the punishment of being served a cooked lettuce?
I am always most puzzled by the same thing – how is it that everyone else around is so excited about the shitty food they are eating? And how do they get themselves to rave about food that’s borderline inedible? Are all others really that fake that they can’t show even the most mild sign of revolt against bad food? Or they just don’t know any better?
