REVIEW: Providence St. Joseph Hospital Cafeteria, Burbank

After the furore surrounding the birth of my daughter at noon today, and after we established that mom and baby were fine (and undergoing the usual tests), I realised I was at loose ends and hadn't eaten anything in many, many, many hours. I wandered to the cafeteria at the hospital and realised there's a reason all the staff members walk on to the Disney lot to eat at the commissary.

The service was non-existent. Though they're open late hours, there was precious little food. I scrounged an old salad, connived a guy into cooking me a cheeseburger, and grabbed an apple and a bottle of water. This set me back a whopping $8, but it's like being at Magic Mountain, you pay what they tell you to pay. The cheeseburger was precooked, the salad dressing was 90% oil and 10% sugar, the apple was bruised but the bottle of Aquafina water was OK.

And so Burbank's notoriety as a chow-free zone continues...
