News Cafe Fife Avenue

News Cafe Five Avenue; when I go there for drinks I have a ball of a time no complaints there.  However, yesterday we went there for coffee but got a seriously raw deal.  They didn’t have cake, how can you not have cake in this blistering cold?!  They do realise that coffee dates will be on a double because of the weather right?  Anyways, I settled for some Hot Chocolate which was absolutely divine!  I had to choose something else to eat seeing that they didn’t have cake! (Note to Restaurant owners, It would be really nice if we could just walk in and actually get to eat what we actually want to eat and not have to make alternative meal choices!)  I chose something not too heavy and opted for Creamy Chicken Mini Pita Pockets served with chips.  My imagination was running wild trying to think what my plate would look like once it was placed on my table because this is something I had not had before.  Lo and behold!

This is what you get for $8

 

That is one very sad looking plate right there!!  I couldn’t believe my eyes.  I was like are these News Cafe Five Avenue guys for real?  It felt like I was reliving my DV8 Restaurant experience!  Come on people, you can do better than this.  How do you just place food on a plate with zero creativity.  This plate was very unhappy; there was no life, no colour, just starch.  These people really make you feel like you are eating this food for free.  After paying your United States Dollars that are so hard to come by they serve you this?!  I want to be happy to be eating out, I want to be like wow, that was something I can never eat from home.  If they gave me the recipe to whatever this was supposed to be trust me I would ace it and I would be so proud to serve it to all my friends.  Actually, tell you what, I shall look for this recipe and try it out just to show how serious I am.

I had to search on Google just to make sure I wasn’t being petty and look at what I found.  Below is a very happy looking Chicken Pita and I would rather eat that with a huge smile on my face than what I had to stomach last night!

This Google image is bursting with colour, texter and flavour!!

 

I hope they do something about their plating.  News Cafe Fife Avenue is a really fun hangout and I would like to continue going there.  At this rate I might just go for drinks only because the food they served me last night was a complete let down.

My rating 5/10 the Hot Chocolate won me over as well as the ambiance but the food is a no for me!

    • LOL let me @ them mufunge, I did yesterday and they completely ignored me. My Pariah experience was much better than mashura andakaitirwa unoziva, I was genuinely touched!

    • Thanks for reading. They sent me an email that I responded to weeks back and I still haven’t heard from them. I certainly won’t be taking my money there anytime soon. Their customer service is pathetic.
