…or you might end up with this:
…when you thought you were ordering this:
The Mediterranean Eggs, with tomatoes, capers, sheep cheese, herbs and olives, was actually listed on the menu as Baked Mediterranean Eggs, a detail I had failed to notice in my excitement over the prospect of eating sheep cheese and capers. The dish was fine, but a strange concept, I thought, and tasted like I was eating pasta sauce and eggs. However, I was expecting, and would have preferred, a Mediterranean Omelette, or even the Omelette Du Jour, which that day was with swiss cheese and mushrooms. Sadly, the homefries were not at all spectacular- kind of chewy fried potatoes with the occasional onion and nothing else. The restaurant was also slightly pricey…
Baked Mediterranean Eggs: $12.50; Omelette Du Jour: $12.50.
