San Diego’s “Phat” FAIL
Anyhow, the roach wasn’t gonna get me down! He was dead after all, and on the floor. (I did place a napkin over him so I didn’t need to see him lying there). So, we get up and start checking out the food. Lots of variety here. I was impressed! I haven’t been to a Vietnamese buffet, let alone in San Diego. I grabbed some lemon grass chicken, some lemon grass beef, and several other assorted rice noodle items. Looks good huh? I thought so too. But look closer. See that lemon grass beef in the top right of my bowl? Now click the picture so you can see if larger. Want to take a guess?
Yup, lemon grass ROACH stir fried right into the beef. I literally had picked this up and was about to place this into my mouth when I noticed some legs that shouldn’t have been there!! Great… just what I needed. Needless to say, my appetite was ruined after this. So, I placed my newfound friend on a napkin and warned my cousin to not eat the beef!
Before I left though, I tried some Pho and a couple other things anyways… I wasn’t about to pay $10 for nothing… lol. Of course I scrutinized everything from that point forward. From there I found a lovely piece of hair and a happy house fly enjoying the dessert buffet with the remainder of the patrons… I was DONE!
The sad thing is that I won’t be coming back here, but the place had really good potential.
Today’s lunch was a big “Phat” FAIL. Diners beware!
