Very strange restaurant experience

T. B. | Jan 13, 2001 06:53 PM

Read an article in Gourmet Mag. about a Vietnam
restaurant in Westminster...Banh Cuon Tay Ho.
Arrived at 7:45 p.m. on a Wednesday. About 12 people sitting at various tables, eating. Smelled great.

Walked up to the counter (didn't know whether to sit or order from the counter, first), unfriendly person behind the counter said, "We have not food for you."
Obviously taken aback, I said, "What?" "We have no food for you. We are out of food."
Is there something wrong here? I've heard of restaurants out of a certain dish or two, but out of food. The 'deli' case next to the counter seemed to have plenty of food.
Quite embarrassed, we left....never to return!

Am I overreacting? Never, ever had happened to me
