The Chopping Block – La De Da’s v Anancapri
Why are some owners of restaurants complete and utter morons? It appears that people think you can just open a restaurant with no experience and expect them to work.
The two owners tonight were both dumb. Terry the co-owner of Anacapri did not show any enthusiasm and looked confused most of the episode.
If Gordon Ramsey had been in the kitchen of La De Da’s with Kim the Chef she would have had a complete nervous breakdown and been carted away in a strait jacket.
All Matt Moran asked her to do was cook a chicken dish and she had a meltdown. This resulted in the other cook Kelly becoming head chef.
Kim was not the only meltdown in this episode.
Both Anacapri’s and La De Da’s are in Swansea an area which most recently acquired notoriety when their local State Member, Milton Orkopolous was thrown in the slammer for young boy and drug charges.
Matt Moran said that Anacapri was one of the worst meals he had ever eaten, and he had a hissy fit over the chicken schnitzel which he played up to the cameras by throwing them into the water.
Terry the co-owner of Anacapri was a bit of a dolt. He appeared to be not that motivated to change. And was gobsmacked that anyone could not like chicken schnitzel.
The pregnant waitress who had previously sobbed to the Sunday tabloids that she had been chased down the street by the camera crew, was shown to have stormed out of the resturant under her own volition.
Both business’s had issues on the night of the reviewers, Alan Saunders, visited for the second time. Anacapri had service issues, and La De Da’s had a complete kitchen meltdown. Both owners were not really that much help.
Terry turned up to the verdict scene alone clearly his staff did not give a stuff by this stage or he had not paid them. Predictably La De Da won. Personally I would not eat at either establishment.
Here is an article from today’s Newcastle Herald where Terry states the chicken schnitzel’s are back and their biggest seller. He did not say whether his business was making a profit yet.
Also it implies in the article that Kim is now back as head chef, she had been demoted by Matt Moran to second chef in the series.
