Airing of Grievances: Naples 45 & Woorijip Sushi Scam
I try my best not to be too negative on this site, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be able to vent. Every once in awhile I’ll share some of the more angry useful emails I get in a post called “Airing of Grievances”. (If the Eater Complaints Dept. would like royalties, I’ll be happy to pay up…)
While Z Deli was rolling back the prices on their slice, it appears as if Naples 45 was doing the opposite. Originally you could get a $1.25 slice after 2pm at Naples 45. At some point it was raised to $1.50, but now it appears as if the price has increased again. And this guy sounds super pissed:
“Needed a quick pizza fix and remembered your mention of this late lunch special. Guess what?? The price was $1.70… $1.90 with tax. True, it was tasty… but the ‘magic’ is definitely gone. And I’m sorry, the price of oil to blame is bogus.. they are just milking the attention your site gave â€˜em. That’s my opinion. Even worse, I’m still hungry. Grrrrr.”
Dude… don’t blame this shit on me. It *is* probably this country’s dependence on foreign oil. Yeah, that sounds right.
Woorijip’s new sushi subterfuge, after the jump…
Blondie and Brownie have uncovered a sushi inconsistency at Woorijip. The same $3.50 that got you 10 pieces of sushi last month, now only gets you 9. Shocking? Yes, but not nearly as bad as the banchan controversy that’s been brewing over Ambrosia. We noted last month how Ambrosia, the deli on 45th btw. 5+6th with Korean food in the back, has been seriously skimping on their banchan (the little Korean side dishes you get with your meal.) Another reader has sent in a more recent photo, and from the looks of it, it may be getting better:
Clearly the selection isn’t what it once was, but I like the look of the choices (is that jap chae?) and the portions are clearly in bigger containers.
