Off Day at More Than Waffles

I ate there Sunday at 3:30 P.M., right after the movie concluded. As usual, I got the Vegi Potatoes. According to the menu, it's home fries, mushrooms, bell peppers, grilled onions and cheddar cheese. This time, unlike all the other times I ordered it, it was missing the bell peppers and the mushrooms.

In my opinion, the chef should have told my waitress that they were out of two of the five ingredients and given me the option of ordering the 60% dish, rather than trying to pull the wool over my tongue. The dish was satisfactory but not exemplary, and I felt short-changed and hornswoggled.

When I told the cashier what happened, she said that it was near the end of the day and sometimes they run out of things. That explanation left me peeved.

After my next Laemmle Encino outing, I'm more likely to opt for Hook'd on Fish or Versailles.

    Thanks for the report. You're right, if they can't make the dish as described in the menu, they should tell you up front. The last time I went to More Than Waffles, I was not pleased. It was so long ago though that I've forgotten why I was not happy with it.
