Worst Meals of 2010

semanticantics | Jan 4, 2011 08:45 AM

This will be brief, as I've been pretty lucky:

Adelita's Mexican Restaurant (altered review I have posted elsewhere):

Tacos de Papas, corn tortillas filled with potato, served with pinto beans, rice, guacamole and sour cream. There was no seasoning on the plate whatsoever. The rice was over cooked to oblivion. The guacamole didn't appear to be anything besides whipped avocado; no seasoning, no onion, no spice, nothing. The corn tortillas were golden brown, but the potatoes inside were once again completely flavorless. They literally tasted "white". The whole plate struck me as what Mexican food would be like cooked in a retirement home in Sweden. The free chips and salsa were much tastier than my meal.

Of note, the TV's playing in the restaurant and bar had graphically violent images on them. One TV was showing a Spanish language "Americas Most Wanted"-like program which was detailing a dog fighting ring, and the other two TV's were showing a movie from the "Blade" series, where one character was missing half of his face. Not exactly appetizing, regardless of being on my way to see "Machete", which had tons more latin flavor than Adelita's.

Victory 44:

Unfortunately ordered their stock vegetarian option, "pasta with vegetables". It was the same dish as a pasta with protein at the time. The pasta was slightly overcooked, the sauce was far too salty, and the omission of the protein didn't result in a price adjustment (not necessarily expected, but would've been appreciated). I should have sent the dish back, but the service was also mediocre this visit. There is a particular employee whose serving skills are definitely lacking, and I always seem to get him.

V44 will also appear in my "Best Meals".
