Kung Foo Panda Rocks: Harry's Burrito's Not So Much

I write this post empowered by Frank Bruni, who wrote a scathing review of Ago yesterday.  This had particular relevance as boy 2 and I had a night out on the town, where we ate at Harry's Burritos on Columbus Avenue and then headed off to see Kung Foo Panda, in IMAX.  Kung Foo Panda was great, and you should see it (you now see why I don't as a rule review movies).  Harry's on the other hand....

The nachos were soggy.  The meat (chicken and beef) were overcooked (really, really overcooked) and flavorless.  Even the rice was dry.  And while the server's were nice, they did lose our complicated order of a burrito and a quesadilla.  I had eaten at Harry's some time ago with the lovely wife and had a similar experience.  I was hoping it was a fluke, but, in the press, two is a pattern.  So pre-movie Mexican on the Upper West Side in the 60's is out for the moment.  Oh Well.

But do see Kung Foo Panda.
