EppsNet Restaurant Reviews: Pea Soup Andersen’s

18 Apr 2016 /

I’ve driven past Pea Soup Andersen’s many times in my journeys from SoCal to NorCal and back . . . finally decided to give the split pea soup its day in court.

The waitress seemed to be always teetering on the edge of exasperation, at my table and at others as well. She said things like “Let’s do this” instead of “Are you ready to order?” I don’t know if surly waitresses are part of the Andersen ambiance or whether that was just the luck of the draw.

The soup was delicious though, served with bacon bits, croutons, diced ham, scallions and grated cheddar cheese, all on the side so you can customize the soup any way you like it.

Rating: 5 stars . . . no deductions for the waitress as I feel she was within the normal bounds of surly coffee shop waitress comportment.

The smoked salmon appetizer was superb, as was the prime rib entree.

Attentive service is provided by busty waitresses in the Brobdingnagian tradition.

“Did you notice all the waitresses had big tits?” my wife asked.

Highly recommended!

Pasta e fagioli — amazing! Linguine with shaved truffles — exquisite! Service — impeccable!

My wife had the veal liver. I don’t even like liver but I tried it and loved it! They can make you like things you don’t even like.

It’s not inexpensive — that needs to be mentioned — but if you feel like helping to spend the country out of this recession we’re having, I think you’ll really enjoy it.

For some reason, they’ve stopped selling the chicken teriyaki bowls that used to be the highlight of my visits to this West Covina rink.

I asked the woman at the counter about it and she couldn’t explain it. She was as dumbfounded as I was.

I noticed that the new sausage, egg and cheese muffins were selling like hotcakes so I decided to try one of those. (Ironically, they have hotcakes on the menu and those weren’t selling at all.)

The muffins were delicious — prepared fresh, not like the heat-lamped ones you get at a fast-food place — which sort of made up for the inexplicable discontinuation of the teriyaki bowls.

Unfortunately, the soft pretzels were small and overcooked, and I had to deduct a star for that.

Rating: Two stars (out of five).


EppsNet Restaurant Review: Norm’s

Breakfast

I hadn’t been to a Norm’s restaurant in years. There isn’t one in my neighborhood. We discovered this one because it’s close to the new place where my son’s taking percussion lessons.

Not only was the boy able to get two eggs, two sausages, two pieces of bacon, half a dinner plate full of hash browns, and two gigantic slabs of French toast with butter and syrup for only $5.99, he managed to polish off the whole thing before I even finished my salad.

Excellent value!

Rating: Five stars.
