Amanda's update

I last reviewed Amanda's on Dec. 31, 2009.  Since then, I have dined there countless times and have always been a 'happy camper' so to speak as this has always been one of my favorite Teguz restaurants.

A few days ago, I went there for lunch. While the atmosphere and service are still great, I must admit I was disappointed...No, the food still tastes delicious. In fact, I had a bowl of lentil soup to start with and it was fantastic (with a dash of Tabasco added)...the best lentil soup I've had in Honduras.

The menu is still the same, and prices haven't gone up...well, uh, maybe prices have increased but just not on the menu...Instead of increasing prices the size of the portions have miraclulously shrunk.  I almost always get the muffaletta sandwich (being from New Orleans).  Definitely not overstuffed, it's about a third shorter with only about half the meat as before.

My wife noted that her lettuce wraps contained the same amount of lettuce and carrots as the last time, but was mystified by the scanty amount of chicken and noodles...

I guess this is inflation Honduran style...always being a bit too clever assuming no one will notice.
