“I love trying out new foods and I must admit, more than fair share of them turn out to be disasters! So my husband and I had been to this restaurant that had just above average ratings online. Usually I wouldn’t prefer such a place, but it was for a get together of my husband’s colleagues with their families, and the location was already decided. It was a buffet style. I went through the spread, and it seemed pretty below average, with very limited vegetarian options and (too strong for me) non vegetarian options. After having an unsatisfactory main course meal, I was on the hunt for dessert to satisfy my taste buds, which were already cursing me.
Then I stumbled upon the live counter that had the label ‘Thai Apple Pie’. Okay, I like apple pie in general, and I like thai food, so this shouldn’t be bad. So I asked the chef dude to prepare a plate for me while I waited with pleasant anticipation. And then he presents me with four or five tiny apple pieces tossed in butter, smeared with little chocolate sauce, and topped with eleven chocolate chips (yes, I counted them). The apple tasted like a potato. I cried. And then I cried some more. And I vowed never to eat at such restaurants again.”
