Burned at Tin Fish

Not a big fan of their fish & chips, so I usually get the grilled halibut 2-taco plate, which is reliably good. This normally comes with their waffle-cut fries – as I’m not wild about those I gladly pay the $2 upcharge to get their “fresh-cut” onion rings. I much prefer cornmeal-crusted to beer-battered onion rings, and the ones at the ‘Fish are some of my favorites.

No more. I placed my usual order, and it appeared with greasy battered rings. I asked the server if they had changed the onion rings (as they obviously had), and she said “yes, these are more consistent”. I replied “They’re Sysco, right?” She admitted that they were, shrugged, and took off before I could even ask for fries to replace them. I was in a hurry to eat and go so I didn’t press the issue, but I did notice on the way out that the menu still read “Onion Rings (fresh-cut)”. Fresh-cut 6 months ago right into the Sysco freezer, I guess.
