Flop Jack's =(

I have always said that I love breakfast...I love brunches, perhaps more than any meal of the day. I have also mentioned that since Flapjacks open...despite some hits and misses in my visits...I still patronize the place...why o why? I don't know....probably because the menu is still inviting? The thought of breakfast and all....but a WARNING: PART OF THIS ENTRY MAY BE OFFENSIVE TO THOSE EATING WHILE READING THIS...OF FANS OF FLAP JACKS. MY APOLOGIES IN ADVANCE BUT I JUST HAVE TO SHOW THIS ....

and the story goes....

There is a new branch of Flap Jacks, at The UP-AYala HUB. It's somewhat like a mini-serendra...amidst various office buildings newly built (i.e HSBC, Manulife etc). Many restos are still under construction like Kanin Club, Mister Kebab, Red Kimono, Razon's, Le Ching, Jerry's Grill and already running and operational are KFC, Old Spaghetti House, The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, Starbucks, Yellow Cab Pizza, and Flap Jacks.

Flap Jack's at the Hub has, in my opinion, the nicest rennovation ...check it out...
the back part of the resto (well....shared by all restos here) have this nice and refreshing view of this somewhat man-made mini-river/creek....makes for a breezy and cool feel!
This visit was around Christmas time....



We had the Pancakes with Egg and Sausages
The pancakes were nice and sausages good.

Pancakes with Bacon and Eggs
A generous serving of bacon here

Breaded Chicken Steak with Milk Gravy and Rice
Nicely breaded and fried chicken breast with a creamy gravy.


The food was good and the service is is more pleasant than our prior experience at their branch at Greenhills....but wait...at the counter my eyes were caught by this......


IS THAT MOLDY BREAD I SEE????
Good grief! and they were placed on stacked up CLEAN PLATES....that will be used to PLATE THE FOOD YOU WILL ORDER!!!!
I couldn't help myself to ask the staff IF THEY ARE AWARE OF THE CONDITION OF THESE BREAD SLICES A TOP THEIR CLEAN PLATES.... so I querry..."miss san gagamitin yun mga bread na ito? " The peron over the counter..."mam pinapatuyo at gagawin po iting breabcrumbs" I pointed out the molds and told them that these breads are not even good to be used as breadcrumbs and should not be placed on top of clean plates....and I left the counter.
Oh my...you be the judge.

Oh my, Jen... That is just disgusting. You were right to point it out and you don't have to apologize to your readers for it.

Thanks Manggy, that's how I feel too. So sad that a place like this can be that irresponsible...and the manager was even there!
