Waffle Fries @ SVMH in Salinas

Melanie Wong | Apr 21, 200704:36 PM     4

Last weekend, the waffle fries under the heat lamp in the cafeteria at Salinas Valley Memorial held the most appeal for a quick snack. Nice spicing, crusty on the outside and a bit mealy in the interior, though I'm sure they'd be better straight out of the fryer. At 80¢ for an order, I was happier with this than a bag of chips from the vending machines.

The vending machines here are still well-stocked . . . three flavors of It's-Its. For the patient meals, the quality of the desserts seems to have gone down. The egg custard didn't taste like it was made from fresh eggs anymore, and the apple crisp was more soggy and unbaked oatmeal topping that anything crisp.
