“That’s Two Pork Chops at NOPA!” – Now Really, Zuni Cafe, Is This $64 Worth of Chicken? Just Asking, Bro

Brunch with the girls at the Zuni on Market isn’t my typical thing. M’kay? M’kay.

That’s $48 on the menu plus 9.5% sales tax plus 4% Healthy San Francisco “surcharge” (are you really still fighting this ¬†battle, Zuni? Seems a tad petulant at this point) plus your standard 18-20% tip = 64 clams, more or less.

Even the people who like this signature dish aren’t coming back for more. Take Janice C, for example:

Let’s just break this down for a minute. The cheap Asian in me says, that’s equivalent to 8 rotisserie chickens at Costco! (or as Darryl P pointed out “that’s 2 pork chops at nopa!”) needless to say, I won’t be ordering this anymore next time I come to Zuni. (unless I’m here on an expense account).¬†Zuni cafe still has room for improvement….”

Break it down again and still she doesn’t add up.

I guess nobody promised me that old-school farmer food had to be cheep or anything.

So noted.

You got me good, Zuni, but never again.

Looks like I’ll have to go back to the Chicken Man for my poultry fix:
