False Advertsing

I have been to Peels a handful of times. Each time being a little more annoyed than the last because the waiting time has seem to have gone from bad to worse. Every time the food has been nothing more than just fine but I saw this very incising image (left) a few months ago in Bon Appetit magazine and I quickly took a snap on my phone as reference. It was of the shrimp and grits dish at Peels. I couldn't help myself to go back and try it one last time to see if maybe this was the one dish that I had just skipped over. As you can see the actual dish (right) looked nothing like the photograph in the magazine and sadly the taste didn't leave up to my expectation. The overly smokey flavour of this dark brown sauce and the thick bacon bits overpowered the eggs and grits to such a point that I couldn't taste anything else. And although we had the most adorable waiter ever, I left feeling disappointed, again.
