Foodheads-- Why bother

I'm actually updating my last post on this.

I complained last year that I stopped going to Foodheads because that lamb-and-eggplant sandwich I once loved had grown increasingly skimpy on the lamb.

I hadn't gone back to Foodheads until today. I got the lamb sandwich again. And again, I was so disappointed at the three bites of lamb in that sandwich.

I paid $10.44 for my sandwich and tea. I was definitely overcharged. The only redeeming thing about my visit was that the weather was nice and I enjoyed sitting outside.

I really want to love Foodheads, but I'm now convinced that my once-beloved lamb sandwich is being very deliberately pared down to the point that it's nowhere near the $8.25 they're asking.

Speaking of gnocchi, stay away from it at Parkside on 6th. I was not merely disappointed; I was practically outraged at what they call gnocchi. Six or seven little oily ball-shaped mashed potato things. For $9. Ridiculous.

Sorry to change the topic. Olivia sounds fantastic! Can't wait to try it.

Foodheads-- Why bother

Hold on a sec!

I used to LOVE LOVE LOVE Foodhead precisely for the Lamb/Eggplant sandwich. I have had it three times in 2007 alone (not once, not twice - but thrice!) ... and each time, there was about an ounce of lamb in that sandiwch. They used to provide some actual meat on the inside. But they have started skimping, so they've stopped getting my business.

Try the lamb sandwich, but when you wind up with about two bites of lamb - say something to the people in the kitchen. Maybe if enough people complain ... I figure if I'm paying $8 for a sandwich and tea, I want something in that sandwich.
