Disappointment!

Disappointment! Been going to this Tita’s Kitchenette for years. The prices have gone up and the service has gone down. Wanted a Coke but it was out. New tables but they’re not cleaned. Wife got a purple desert, discovered something non-chewable. She brought it to staffs attention and was told was part of a root. Place is going downhill. Not sure we will be going back anytime soon.

Chicken Adobo Combo

Got chicken adobo combo with rice, very small meat portion. Ended up with more bone than meat. Used to get big heaping portions of meat, and never walk away hungry.

We're Done with Tita's

Let me start by saying that I’m Filipino and my wife is Hispanic and we both enjoy Filipino food. We’ve eaten at Tita’s several times in the past and just had to bear being treated like second class citizens. A few months back my wife went in by herself and was immediately given the “stare down” by the staff, none of which gave any form of greeting when she entered. They just stared as if she was about to rob the place. Just for the record, she didn’t. My wife went in again today and to her surprise, but not mine, the hospitality was even worse! Again, no form of greeting, no acknowledgment of her presence and of course the “stare down”. She was was treated with such rudeness and condescendence that she contemplated leaving. The person serving the precooked food just stood there, complete with blank stare and a slight touch of animosity towards my wife. In the employee’s defense, she may not have spoken English or she may have been physically or mentally challenged.

Then there was the girl at the register. Keep in mind, my wife at this point is trying to give her money! Money for “Soup Nazi” service! Not a word from her! No eye contact! Just that blank stare. At most restaurants, cashiers will at least tell you the amount you owe as a courtesy, even at the worst truck stop diners, trust me I know.

At this point I’m not sure if we should blame ourselves for giving this place a second chance or blame the substandard management and staff. I’m always amazed and perplexed that a restaurant that serves good food does not capitalize on it, especially in today’s economic climate. They act as if the world would end if they didn’t serve their food. I honestly think Tita’s is due for a slap in the face from reality…hopefully soon.

The meal was good, the substandard hospitality of Tita’s made me lose most of my appetite.
