Dish Dissent

Breakfast in Ballard at Dish

The dish is this place was a letdown. The infamous long wait wasn’t for a table but rather for a bite of food. Oatmeal, cooked in a minute and served in an hour. Even the raisins were stale, they could have sun dried a fresh batch in the time it took to get our orders completed. Artichoke heart and gouda egg beater omelette came with a nice looking pile of parsley flaked, red potatoes but the whole dish was marred by an overactive salting hand. The coffee was weak but they volunteered the info that their coffee supplier, Torrefazione, had started lightening up the roasts since being bought by SBC. All in all very nice servers having to serve very average food. I know a lot of respected Hounds love this place but I just don't get it. All the food going by looked equally mediocre. I think I would have done better with the five spot gang. Next time I'll go for Coastal Kitchen.

Enjoy.
