I hear so much about them but have not been impressed any of the times I've eaten them. I had some in a tomato salad (with English Cucumber, Warm Feta Croutons, Dehydrated Olives and Basil-Mint Yogurt) at an otherwise great restaurant recently. And their flavor was blah. The texture was nice though. Are heirloom tomatoes just a trend? Have I been getting some blah tomatoes? Am I expecting too much from a tomato?

OTOH, this restaurant's Grilled Anson Mills Corn Cake with Blueberry-Goat Cheese Ice Cream,Crushed Pecans and Blueberry Coulis was great!
