A friend went to Mandola's in the Triangle the other day and said the whole menu has been redone. It's not reflected online yet, and I haven't been in a while.
Anyone been with some info on what's changed? My friend was disappointed they no longer offer the Salad Nicoise. It was a favorite.
I eat there about three times a month. The change I noticed is that the porchetta sandwich is back on the menu. It pleases me because it was my favorite and I sent them copious hate-mail when they took it off a few months ago. Now if they could only get the kitchen folk to stop over-salting it, all would be well. (it is not that it is cooked with too much salt, it seems to be a random thing with who ever cuts the meat and prepares the sandwich.
Thank god the porchetta is back on. That sandwich one of my favorites. I wanted to stop going there after the change, but since the ol ball and chain likes the pizza, I went there anyway and may have made some some... "pushy" remarks about getting it back on the menu. Lots of drunken hate mail as well. Good times.
It seems to me that selected items have changed, but lots of the favorites remain. I was a little disappointed to see my favorite soup missing (the one with the hunk of bread in it), but it's been replaced by a wonderful, chock-full of veggies minestrone. The Antipasto platter has been downsized to a $9.99 version. Some new pizzas, sandwiches, etc...
