The Deli and Bistro only had four items on their breakfast menu. I decided to go with the Classic Breakfast Wrap, which was described as “a culinary blend of eggs, sausage, and herbs”.
It came in a green tortilla that was a little alarming, but the classic wrap had a nice aroma. I took the first bite and within seconds was spitting it out while muttering, “What the @#$%.”
The bad taste lingered even after several healthy gulps of ice tea. I stared at the classic breakfast wrap trying to recall the last time I had put anything that bad in my mouth.
Rarely do I send food back in restaurants. But this was bad – really, really bad. I took it back to the counter and told the waitress I didn’t care for it at all and would like my money back. She looked shocked while explaining the classic wrap was their most popular breakfast item. With the bad taste still lingering in my mouth I replied, in a nice way, I was glad but I wanted my money back.
As she was refunding my money I asked her what was in it. She said it was eggs scrambled with sausage and roasted sun dried tomatoes, topped with a creamy pesto sauce served in a spinach tortilla. She then got a little defensive while stating most people just love it, absolutely love it. I pocketed my money and left.
Cliff and I were talking later that night and I told him about this culinary marvel. When he quit laughing, which took awhile, he told me I should have been tipped off by the word classic. He said there is no such thing as “classic” food.
I think he’s right. From now on, I’m sticking with the “basic” breakfast.
