This is is what the kitchen sent out, and a waiter delivered without question…
Cut up fried eggs; a terrible attempt at disguising the mistake of the staff. I understand that the kitchen would not be happy throwing out perfectly good fried eggs, but the menu specifies that the eggs are served however we like and good wait staff should remember to ask.
I found it quite offensive that the kitchen thought I was stupid enough not to notice, or that my standards were so low that I wouldn’t care. I can just imagine the conversation between the chefs before our meals were sent out, them assuming that I wouldn’t mind and deciding that the food was “good enough”. I also was amazed that the wait staff let this go out without question; as a waitress myself, if I saw that coming out of my kitchen I would ask why the eggs looked so strange.
The rest of the big breakfast was quite good; the beverages we had – a latte and a mango smoothie – were great, but the poor service and lack of respect to customers means I won’t be coming back.
