Johny Banana - disappointed

Tried this new spot yesterday - pro's: fresh, clean and stylish interior, ingreditents were also very fresh.
Cons: smallish, waiter felt as though he was constantly staring at you as he watched us eat from 4 feet away, condiments are way too small and no more were offered. Delicious picco de galo (sp), tasty yet watery salsa and fresh nacho chips. Too bad the chips out numbered the fixin's 10 to 1. For the main course, the breakfast burriot's were terrible - 90% rice, no flavour and a huge amount of tortilla. Again, no salsa or even salt/pepper were brought out to add any flavour. Finally, the prices are steep for what you get. Had the flavour and quantities been there, I would have been more likelky to return. The extensive lists of 'shake' type drinks was indeed exhaustive, but for $5.50 a pop, you'd be full before you ate anything. Too bad this place did not have more 'positives'. I have been looking for good mexican for some time now.
