We have had a string of outings to various restaurants in the relatively recent past that have resulted in some truly lousy offerings. For example, on a recent trip to a local New American restaurant, I ordered their three ham appetizer (From the menu: "Taste of Three Lands - Prosciutto di Parma, Serrano, Speck - Fresh marinated local tomatoes, Aged Balsamic Vinegar, Basil Infused Olive Oil) and it came to the table with the meat practically frozen. Why in the world would anyone serve a ham sampler with the meat too cold to taste? I mean they're cured meats that need not be refrigerated in the first place! Needless to say, I decided the cheese plate would be a bad idea.
More recently, I was drinking at a Manasquan bar with my Dad and decided to try the Tuna bites they offer. Dear God, it was so f*cking salty that I almost choked - and I love my salts. I may drink there again, but I think I'll walk across Main Street to 7-11 for nachos or a hot dog if I feel that I need something to eat.
So, my fellow Jersians, I can't help but ask that you share with the rest of us (for sh*ts and giggles, of course), what were some of your most recent "For the love of all things holy, don't ever serve this crap again" moments? What's the lousiest thing a restaurant has served you?
