Okay, I read an article recently - I think it was the L.A. Times - and someone (was it Frank Gehry?) raved about The Apple Pan and that they had "the best french fries".
I went to the Apple Pan once - a long time ago, and that was enough.
But maybe they've changed.
Those are some of the most awful french fries in the world. Frozen spuds, reconstituted. Like the kind you get in any below average greasy spoon. And the hamburger? I liked the big chunk of iceberg lettuce - gave it a nice crunch, but crunch aside, this burger just blows.
I felt angry and ripped off. I left feeling angry, I questioned Gehry's taste and judgement. (if it was him, tried finding the article on the LAT webside, but maybe I dreamed the whole thing) and every building, every art piece he ever did.
I had to go to Hal's the next day and get a really good burgers and excellent fries.
There are so many great places to eat, in this town, I hate that I spend one meal at a sub standard icon. Blech!
