Olympian Food? Not So Fine

August 3, 2012

Low end, or high, apparently the food offerings at the Games in London disappoint.

"...the more high end offerings were failing to impress customers. "I've never seen a carpaccio like it," said Chris Dixon, 62, a solicitor who had joined his son Luke for lunch after watching a the Belgium v Netherlandshockey match. "It was about a centimetre thick." His son was equally underwhelmed with his dish of belly pork, chilli and ginger glaze, garlic prawns, sweet potato and pak choi. "It was gravy and prawns," he said. "Perhaps it was a classic example of British eccentricity of the kind we saw in the opening ceremony."
