This was my second time at The Eatery and I came back based on a great experience the first time around. First time I was here, my friends and I had breakfast and it was outstanding, creative, made fresh and with love.
This time around, we came out for a quick bite to eat before heading out to friend's birthday party. It was 4 of us and the place was pretty empty so we figured the service would be quick too. Our server was a bit flustered and kept running in and out asking cooks questions about items on the menu we wanted to order and finding out whether they could substitute things or made modifications (ex. no onions, baked potato instead of french fries). Anyways, afrer good amount of time spent on squearing away our order, we finally received our meals. My friends had different sandwiches all of which looked good and they seemed to enjoy them. Two of my friends had some hair on their plates (looked like pet hair). They're not real fussy so they just picjed them out and continued eating (the hair didn't touch their food)
I, on the other hand, rememered seeing a picture on their Facebook page which had a pork belly featured on it and it looked fabulous. So that's what I went with.
Let me tell you something, don't be fulled by the size of this baby. It's listed under appetizer and comes on a bed of wild rice with caramelized onions. This thing was devine and probably has about 2,000 calories in it, but that's not the point. The point is the amazing flavor. It was cooked to perfection and not ridiculously fatty. There was plenty of meat on it and it was really crispy on the outside. The rice had a really unique smoky flavor to it and I really enjoyed the dish.
I would definitely come back here again, but now I know the service can be hit or miss at this place.
