Blushes Cafe

myself, my partner and a colleague went to blushes for dinner on a quiet wednesday night and were extremely dissapointed with the food and service approach.

we just ordered plain burgers with a pepper sauce that arrived split and lumpy and was told that happened due to the fact we had asked for no peppercorns, which is complete rubbish as i myself am a chef and it doesnt take a rocket scientist to know that peppercorns are a binding agent!

so my partners burgwer was sent back covered with a lumpy flavourless goo and a new burger with the proper accompanient was delivered, 15 minutes later, which she then had to eat by herself as our "thin chips" (aka mcdonalds chips)had started to go soggy after about 5mins of waiting.

then onto desserts the first thing that we all saw and perhaps thought that could save our meal experience was the chocoalte fondant. you can never go wrong with a good ol oozing chocolatey centered fondant and perhps some vanilla ice cream to put a subtle finish on the rich flavours. that was all a pipedream with this desert, it showed up on a starter side plate with a mint "tree" size sprig , no ice cream, a tiny amount of sauce, no chocolate centre just a piece of dry foam like sponge that could have easily been bought at tescos that afternoon and microwaved to order.

throughout the evening we were not looked after by the staff, instead the manager argued the split sauce was our fault due to the fact we did not want peppercorns in it and were handed a massive bill at the end of an unpleasant night.

no "thankyou for coming" no "did you enjoy your meal?" no nothing, no satisfaction so on the way home it seemed the only right thing to do was pop into mcdonalds and get some hot and crispy "thin" chips.
