Bad Experience at SF House of Bagels

I went with high hopes as per info on new owner and sandwiches...but the breads looked as dull and tired as egg wash...not even on the lone naked/seedless pallid challah...
Strike one!
Ordered a "Not Lean Pastrami" 8 ounce!!! deli mustard....predominant taste was salt...texture was like of the worst I have had in the city...
Strike Two!
Bought a poppy seed hamentasch it was OK not great...
Ball one!
When I anxiously heated up my KASHA (!! yay!!) knish..I took a bite and discovered it was actually Potato!!! in the garbage
Strike Three!
The bagel flat...usually crispy and chewy...wasn't...
Strike Four!
After heating the bagel flat up in the toaster oven to restore some semblance of the original, I opened my container of whitefish salad....predominant taste salt! With a secondary hit of smoke (which I didn't mind) just no flavor of fresh whitefish!
Strike Five!
Heated up a frumpy looking bagel....hardly any chew and not much of a sheen!
Strike Six!

Does that make 2 outs???!!!....($29.00 later)
