Sunday brunch buffet @ Fives, Peninsula New York.. what the???

kosmose7 | Jan 16, 201212:59 AM

Today, I had Sunday brunch buffet at Fives inside the Peninsula New York. The buffet menu clearly states their cauliflower soup is served with Perigord truffle, and poached eggs florentine comes with lobster and "caviar". Well, the cauliflower soup had no trace of truffle, or even truffle oil (LOL). Poached eggs florentine with lobster and "caviar", which is prepared to order, arrived with no "caviar" at all. So I asked the manager whether it was supposed to have caviar as their menu clearly said. He took it back to the kitchen and brought it out again... This time with salmon roe. Was this supposed to be a joke?
