Don't be fooled by the pictures. Thankfully, I messed up a bit with the white balance, so the food doesn't look that tasty anyway. We'd just had a wonderful meal the night before, so this meal became a really big disappointment. Another reason for the disappointment, is because we had been spoiled by the wonderful meals we'd had when we were living abroad.
We came to this mall thinking there would be more choices to pick from. Since I had very little luggage, I could also leave straight after lunch from here. We saw that there were still seats available here, so without much hesitation, we decided to give it a try. Little did we realise that a huge disappointment awaits!
Before I continue, I feel obliged to explain why we've been spoiled. When we were living in Chiang Mai, at the time, my dad's salary gave us a very comfortable life there. We could easily enjoy top restaurants without pressure. The dimsum chefs there were all from Mainland China, thus very authentic in taste! So when we came back to Taiwan, it was difficult to accept the fact that all these dimsum restaurants were expensive and not even close to delicious!
Pak choi was the veggie of the meal. It was cold, and basically, nothing special can be said about it. It's just a plate of veggie!
Nothing special about this bitter gourd either.
This was the only dish worth mentioning. But you know, as long as the shrimps are fresh, there's basically nothing much you need to do to make it delicious!
This was the most disappointing dish of all. Can you believe it? I'm a lover of chicken meat, and this simple plate of chicken couldn't even satisfy me!
Yes, the picture looks great. But it sure didn't taste that great!
Another unimpressive dish. I didn't eat pork most of the time, and I wasn't ready to make an exception for this dish.
After this tasty-looking shrimp-ball with mushroom, we had to assume that the restaurant's chef did not make the dishes themselves. This was probably why most of the dishes were so disappointing!
Of course, if they didn't make these dishes on their own, there's not much else I can say...
This was the most horrendous dish of all!
It wasn't good at all. Plus, it was huge! I didn't know whether I should finish it, or leave it!
This rice noodle roll was also quite an embarrassment. Come on! I know smaller places that can do better!
Although I wouldn't say I've had too many rice noodle rolls, but I do know one small place that makes wonderful rice noodle rolls. It can't be that hard! You're a proper restaurant! At least you can make sure the roll doesn't break?
The last plate - turnip cake - was... SURPRISE! Another disappointment... I can't think of any other adjectives to describe this meal, other than 'disappointing'!
