Claw’s and Chip’s gone fishing – Norma’s

Claw's and Chip's gone fishing - Norma's
Lobster and Chilean sea bass on board, like fish ‘n chips, mango salsa. $25
Norma’s, Palm Springs CA

OMG, there was only 2 TEENY pieces of lobster in there! Sheesh, this place is ridiculous on their prices and probably one of the worst restaurant values I’ve encountered. The lobster and fish were even poorly cooked and super greasy. And don’t get me started on the service!

Pancho’s crispy fish tacos – Norma’s

Pancho's crispy fish tacos - Norma's
With chipotle salsa and pickled onions, guacamole and pico de gallo, lime. $22
Norma’s, Palm Springs CA

Another lame, basic dish for twenty two bucks! I guess if you add a grilled lime and stick long tortilla chips into the guacamole you can charge that amount. Someone should tell them that it would help if the food actually tasted good.

Upstream eggs benedict – Norma’s

Upstream eggs benedict - Norma's
Buttermilk pancake with smoked salmon, poached eggs, hollandaise, and peewee potatoes. $22
Norma’s, Palm Springs CA

This was ok, but the pancakes quickly became soggy from the luke warm hollandaise sauce, and the potatoes were undercooked. It would definitly be an “upstream” battle to find things that I absolutely loved about this dish.

Side of bacon - Norma's
Side of bacon. $4
This was probably the most reasonably priced item on their menu.

PB&C waffle ‘wich – Norma’s

PB&C waffle 'wich - Norma's
Chocolate waffle with a peanut buter and toffee crunch filling, whipped cream. $19
Norma’s, Palm Springs CA

Dang it was HOT outside! Norma’s really needs to have more even sun coverage on their patio area. The quickly moving sun through the split canvas is way too bothersome.

As for these waffles – they were LAME! Ugh, I thought the food here was going to be spectacular especially at these prices (I mean twenty bucks for waffles – they better be good)! The waffles were super crispy and tasted like powdered chocolate. They were so hard that you really couldn’t cut into them without squishing all the filling out from between them. This dish was a major sugar-bomb without any waffle satisfaction.
