Wally noticed that almost every major restaurant in California tends to overdose it's clientele with green onions or garlic. Every cook school in the world will advise it's students to add a flourish of garlic or green onions to their dishes, to add both color and flavor but some restaurants take this too far.
Wally often ends up with heart burn after a visit to some of his favorite restaurants when he forgets to tell the waiter to go easy on those items. Not sure why but it would seem that these vegetables tend to be quite difficult to digest. When combining them to other ingredients such as spices, (high doses of salt and sugar) and an excessive use of oil you end up with a recipe for disaster.
Wally is always thankful when he comes across the occasional restaurant that either goes easy on them or gives the customers the choice of adding them to their dish later on, by putting such condiments in a separate container.
Having said that Wally is a huge fan of Californian cuisine since it is very flavorful, multicultural and well presented. As a matter of fact it is hard to find a state or place in the world where you can get access to such great food from all different countries.
Wally was amazed at the authenticity of the food deriving from most countries however he was really disappointed in Italian cuisine. He wondered why it was that every time he walked into an Italian restaurant he found it hard to spot a real Italian waiter, chef owner or manager. It would seem that the only un authentic restaurants in California are the Italian ones.
Some Italian restaurants like Il Fornaio do serve authentic Italian food but again finding an Italian you can actually have a conversation with is merely impossible.
Wally would love to hear what your side of the story is.
