  • Squirty cream , is there anything worse to be served in a restaurant ?
  • As above , just had nice meal out , Lemon Tart for dessert and it comes accompanied by a mound of squirty cream . Totally ruined the Lemon Tart for me and was wondering what others had had which had the same effect . Sensible answers only please .

    Chips that have come from a freezer bag. My pet hate.

    Well, one of them….

    I once ordered an espresso which turned out to be lots of Nescafé and a little bit of water (confirmed by the girl serving us after I suggested the coffee was a bit rank). I don’t mind the odd cup of Nescafé, but 5 spoonfuls in 50ml of water is pushing it a bit 🙂

    Smash instead of mash potatoes. Disgusting!

    Squirty cream should be only ever licked off in the bedroom. Only sensible option.

    squeezey cream wins hands down, yet another fffing useless American food tech product — btw food and technology should not appear in same sentence, food equals natural, tech is man made and in the context of food usually synthetic crap !

    there’s nothing I like more than the breakfast buffet when staying at a hotel… BUT when they serve up scrambled eggs made from powdered egg it makes me want to get punchy

    NO NO NO

    You obviously have had little sexual experience with another person, for you to even think that.

    Tea Bags.
    Cheap crap sausages in a proper breakfast
    But in general anything served by an establishment that has photo’s of the food.

    Crab curry that turns out to be a dismembered crustacean with hot sauce on it, very difficult eat – especially when crackers and crab fork aren’t provided!

    cheap sausages /make/ a proper breakfast.

    Guilty pleasure of mine.

    Ramsey Neil – Member has spoken. Lolling at Brakes 😀

    Bought an “Irish coffee” once, well disappointed when it arrived with squirt cream floating on the top.

    I remember when squirmy cream first came out, even the cat didn’t much like it!

    Worse thing in a restaurant to be served, I’d have to go for tinned fruit when you expected fresh,

    Slightly off topic but what about “home made” stuff in a restaurant. Who’s home was it made in? Unless somebody lives in the factory/resturant then I doubt it was home made

    My most horrendous food experiences have all taken place in Peterhead. A colleague and I were staying at what was, at that time, the “best” hotel in town. At dinner, she ordered the veggie option. I don’t recall how it was described on the menu, but what arrived was a frozen supermarket quiche served on top of a pile of Heinz spaghetti hoops. Best of all, it arrived at the table under a cloche, which the server whipped off with a flourish: tah-daaaaah!

    I once ordered an espresso which turned out to be lots of Nescafé and a little bit of water (confirmed by the girl serving us after I suggested the coffee was a bit rank). I don’t mind the odd cup of Nescafé, but 5 spoonfuls in 50ml of water is pushing it a bit

    Oh, man. This reminds me of another Peterhead experience. I made the mistake of ordering a cappuccino. What I got was one of those Nescafe cappuccino sachets, topped up with about a litre of boiling water. Looooooooooooooxury.

    Home made = Made from ingredients on the premises
    Home cooked = Heated up on the premises but made elsewhere.

    Complaining that the chef who made the food doesn’t live at the restaurant is hopeless pedantry.

    Heh heh…yeah, that’s the one. Sampled its delights yourself have you?

    Another fine dining experience in Peterhead, this time in the local prison, which at that time was basically a medieval leper-colony for sex offenders. When lunch time came around, my colleagues and I were served a platter of thoroughly depressing sandwiches, lovingly prepared by the jail’s residents. Now, when working with such populations, you have to resist making negative assumptions, but we all glanced at each other and it was clear that we were all hoping the same thing, i.e. that nothing too exotic had been added to the ingredients list.
