千萬別被照片騙了。還好這天白平衡沒調好,看起來也沒多好吃。話說這天剛好是前一天晚上吃了蘇杭的隔天。不要說我們早就在國外多年寵壞的味蕾,前一天的美味也把這間完全比下去了。

這天來到中友想說選擇比較多。剛好這天行李少,吃完可以直接去坐車回台北。來到這間看還有位子,就進去了。起初以為這麼多人應該不差吧。誰知道完全不是我們的菜。

在我繼續寫下去之前,先說一下我們的嘴為什麼會這麼挑吧!以前在清邁,對當地人來說我們已經算是小康家庭。以當地當時的物價來說,的確是輕鬆可以享受到頂級的美味。高級餐廳的飲茶,所有的廚師真的都是大陸聘請過來的。因此回台後就很容易嫌棄大部分餐廳既貴又不好吃。

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!

餐餐都要有青菜。這算是最普通的一道菜。是涼的,基本上沒什麼好評論的。青菜就是青菜啊。

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!

dimsum05

這道苦瓜也是還好而已。

Nothing special about this bitter gourd either.

dimsum08

唯一值得一提的就是這道蝦吧。但這種蝦要好吃也不難,只要食材新鮮,隨便煮一煮都嘛好吃。並無什麼真功夫可言。

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!

這道油雞倒是意外地令人失望。我這麼愛吃雞的人,很少會吃到被我嫌棄的油雞。

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!

雖然照片看起來很美味,但入口後,卻不是這麼一回事。

Yes, the picture looks great. But it sure didn't taste that great!

dimsum15

習慣不吃豬肉的我,這道當然也沒有吸引我要為他破例。

Another unimpressive dish. I didn't eat pork most of the time, and I wasn't ready to make an exception for this dish. 

dimsum16

這也是看似一道很好吃的蝦料理,但也是依樣沒什麼特色可言。吃到這裡,天仙爸媽已經判斷出這些菜可能都是外包,並非自家廚師做的。(純粹猜測)

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!

dimsum17

既然已經猜測是外包的,剩下的菜色也就沒什好談的了。

Of course, if they didn't make these dishes on their own, there's not much else I can say... 

dimsum18

這倒是我覺得當天最恐怖的一道。

This was the most horrendous dish of all!

dimsum19

既不好吃,又這麼大塊一個。點了之後,吃完也不是,不吃完也不是。整個尷尬。

It wasn't good at all. Plus, it was huge! I didn't know whether I should finish it, or leave it!

後來又點了份腸粉來吃吃看。我的媽呀,平價的腸粉都做得比你們好。皮都破了耶... 

This rice noodle roll was also quite an embarrassment. Come on! I know smaller places that can do better! 

dimsum23

雖然腸粉我不常吃,但台北杭州南路上有一間我倒是蠻喜歡吃的。你們要加油啊!那間小館的腸粉都做得比你們好耶... 

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?

dimsum24

最後這盤蘿蔔糕也是挺失敗的。總之,除了毫無功夫可言的蝦子值得一提之外,其他真的... 另我們好失望啊。

The last plate - turnip cake - was... SURPRISE! Another disappointment... I can't think of any other adjectives to describe this meal, other than 'disappointing'! 


天仙念:其實東西好吃與否見仁見智,但這間吃完這一頓我們應該就不會再來第二次了。真的不是我們的菜。
