I don’t eat great stuff all the time. Well in comparison to starving, I do have it pretty good. But you know as well as I do that these things are senseless and superficial to compare to.
So I hardly talk about not so awesome food because… give people chance mah. Tastes are so personal, one man’s meat etc. But I do come across lots, so here’s a post for some of it for my personal collection.
Expensive, bland Cajun food at a hotel restaurant. Most expensive Carlsberg that I paid for too. The best thing about the meal was the free bread.
Grilled stingray at a famous Hokkien noodles place. I absolutely LOVE stingray but I didn’t care for the way they marinate or grill the fish. Overly salty and overly cooked, the meat became tough and rubbery. But they looked gangsta so I didn’t try to get my money back 😛
This is one of my favourite things to eat in Hong Kong. Rich, expensive and not cheap. They brought it to Malaysia and though it’s more affordable here, I felt that that the quality and taste were compromised. So sad
Tried out a couple of dishes at a pork-friendly restaurant in Seksyen 17. The menu listed that the ham comes with either melon or honeydew. Well I asked for melon and got honeydew. Ham was sub standard. I’m beginning to think that the only way I can eat really good ham and melon is if I buy the ingredients and wrap the damn things myself.
At the same place, we tried the pasta with prawns, scallops and wine sauce served with white truffle oil. We could not detect neither wine sauce nor white truffle oil. It cost RM39.90++. Here’s a tip: for RM36++, go eat the delicious Spaghetti alla Opus at Opus Bistro, Bangsar. Even better, take me along 😉
At one of the restaurants owned by the family of the ex-minister involved in the cow-saga, I was told that the mushroom melt is a best seller. The 200g of ‘homemade’ patty done medium-well (because they can’t do it any other way) was tough and severely bland. I feel sorry for the cow that died to make this p.o.s.
