Original Joe’s Restaurant, Nanaimo

Why, oh why do restaurants change things so that you won’t make an effort to return?  Let me explain, please.

I have never ordered a thing other than the Dragon Tempura Shrimp (Appetizer) and Don ordered what they mistakenly called Lasagna. We had taken guests with us and if we had been alone, both our orders would have been returned to the kitchen.

Our guests each ordered the Fettucine on Bruschetta. They ate it all  up. I hope they didn’t order this dish because it was on special.

The shrimp, for me, was almost burnt. They could not have been blacker if they tried. Some of it was just the outer tempura shell and it was spicier than I remember it. I have ordered it a minimum of 20 times in one and a half years. So I do know of which I speak.

Don’s lasagna actually looked like something they had put in a blender and turned it on to puree and then added a bit of cheese on top. I am not exaggerating here folks.

My suggestion to Original Joe’s – call my husband and he will show you how to make lasagna the proper way and also how to cook shrimp. I am so sorry about things I have raved about so much and then the last three times – one was uncooked, another was over cooked and then this one was almost burnt.
