Chef Fail! Call Gordon Ramsay!

So on saturday, I went out to eat lunch with my great-aunt. We went to a particular restaurant we'd been to before where the food was passable in most cases (though I've had poor food there before. It's a crapshoot. I heard their boss is really hard to work for so they have a rather significant turnover where it comes to cooks.)

The specials included a Croissant with salisbury steak, egg, cheese.....and hollandaise sauce. Having not had hollandaise sauce in a while I thought that would be yummy.

How wrong I was.

The Hollandaise sauce was rather sweet and conflicted badly with the cheese and the flavor of the salisbury meat (hamburger patty). The flavor of the egg did not improve with the hollandaise, either. It was enough to give me a stomach ache. Plus the croissant was soggy, because the genius chef thought it was a great idea to pour the hollandaise ALL OVER the top of the bun.

There were some tasty hashbrowns with it, but I couldn't finish them because of the hurt that strangely too-sweet hollandaise (I can't remember if it's SUPPOSED to taste that sweet) put on my tummy.

I have to wonder if the wait staff has considered calling Kitchen Nightmares...though the place is always packed anyway. Too many people are happy with part-time substandard "home-style" food in this town.
