Squirty cream , is there anything worse to be served in a restaurant ?
In the restaurants defence, could it have been the fresh stuff done with a gas cannister rather than pasteruised “Anchor cream substitute”. The former’s forgivable in a busy kitchen, fresh whipped cream is a PITA, but supermarket crap isn’t forgivable under any circumstances.Posted 3 years agotomdSubscriber
Heh heh…yeah, that’s the one. Sampled its delights yourself have you?
Yes it’s an absolute dump. Mercifully we’re now banned from staying there for work. I kind of admire their business sense though – they have invested zero in the place since it was built in the 70s but can still charge £100+ a night because of the demand in that area. They’re also guaranteed a few weeks a year when it will be jammed out when there’s a problem flying people to the rigs.Posted 3 years agoNZColSubscriber
Frozen packet veg dining in a reatsurant attached to a market garden !Posted 3 years ago
Best one ever was during a expedition race, came across a ‘cafe’, woo hoo it had a decent coffee machine so ordered a coffee. Watched in slow motion awe as the lady filled the group head with cheap Nescafe powder then ran the water from the machine through it into a cup. The piece de resistance was then adding skimmed milk ! To be fair it was rural Tasmania but still ….mogrimMember
Nothing wrong with a bit of squirty cream at times, both in a restaurant and at home… Depends on the restaurant, though – I wouldn’t expect it at some upmarket place.
Stuff made using frozen veg is a pet hate, when you see all the perfect little cubes of watery carrot you just know it’s not been cooked fresh.Posted 3 years agoRamsey NeilMember

The difference is pretty obvious , even I can tell .Posted 3 years agoBunnyhopSubscriber
But in general anything served by an establishment that has photo’s of the food.
This is my rule of thumb. Any photos of the food and we don’t go there.
emsz – completely agree with you about having decent bread. Even a toastie should be served with nice crusty home-made bread.
Another pet hate is iceberg lettuce – yuk!Posted 3 years agoD0NKSubscriber
As above , just had nice meal out , Lemon Tart for dessert and it comes accompanied by a mound of squirty cream
You didn’t specify? Since the invention of squirty cream at every family meal out I’ve had to listen to my dad ask “is that proper pouring cream with the apple pie/whatever?” when the dessert menu came out.

we once ate out at a decent looking place in vienna whilst on a trip. unfortunately my ‘chefs special’ turned out to be funny shaped pasta mixed with baked beans, hot dog sausages, meatballs, chopped up PEK tinned pork and wierd squirmy things (mushrooms???) all lathered up in a red coloured syrup (possibly tomato but can’t be sure). at the time i wish i’d had the same as my girlfriend – schnitzel which looked like dried up roadkill!Posted 3 years ago
