Friday night, I went to Cocoa Lane, located in Historic Ellicott city, for a late dinner and drinks. The main reason that I frequent here is the rooftop deck … 3 stories up.
Their menu seems to change frequently. A couple of items caught my eye this time, but I did not want to slow down my beet kick. I went with the roasted beets salad described to come with blue cheese, cranberries and walnuts. The waitress mentioned that there were no greens in this salad. I pictured a hearty beet salad with chunks of cheese. Boy was I wrong.
*Even smaller in real life
I hate complaining about meals, so I sucked it up. But literally, the chunks of beets were the size of blueberries and they were swimming on top of blue cheese dressing. I think that I could had scooped my entire salad up with one forkful.
Poor Perry kept asking me “what’s wrong”…”don’t you like your salad”…”jess, is your salad ok”…”how are your beets”. Haha I know he was just trying to be nice, but I really wanted to kick him from under the table.
My friend, Christa, ordered a buffalo chicken salad that she seemed satisfied with, although I think we both regreted not ordering the stuffed portabella.
Have you ever ordered something that was not what you expected?
