Guess what? After we finished eating the yee sang, the waiter came to our table with a plate of raw salmon slices. They were of course meant for the yee sang! I really could not believe it! I asked the waiter how were we supposed to eat the salmon without the yee sang? His reply was that they did not have the sauce ready.
Another point is, we booked for the dinner to start at 7pm. If you can't find the "sauce" for the salmon by 7.30pm, that's just plain stupid!
If you are thinking of second helpings, you can just forget it! And by the way, my mom told me she could make a much nicer and delicious corn soup at home!
The fish was good by itself, but dipping it into the green sauce (a mixture of wasabi and mayonnaise?) was yummy! I thought they had redeemed themselves, but I was wrong.
The Braised Seasonal Vegetables with Dried Shrimps and Bai Ling Mushroom was pretty average. I just felt the portion was a little too small for all six of us.
If you look at the picture above, you can see that each of us could only eat perhaps 2 pieces of broccolis and 2 slices of the Bai Ling mushrooms. This is almost like fine dining if you ask me!
I did not like this dish. Maybe the roasted chicken and the pine nuts were supposed to give it a unique taste, but I found it rather bland. Besides, just look at the tiny portion size! Are we doing fine dining here or what?!
What happened next was .... nothing. Yes, absolutely nothing. We waited, and waited, and waited. Gone to the toilet and back and still nothing. We only have 2 dishes left from the 8-course menu, but they appeared to be NOT forthcoming.
After the whole bowl of chips was finished, we were given another bowl. No kidding. I think we waited more than half an hour for the freaking desserts! What the hell were they doing in the kitchen? What kind of service was this?! No chips, no matter how good, was going to make up for wasting my precious time!
After we pointed this out to the waiter, who was obviously unaware of it (or could not count - take your pick!), we were given the correct number of nian gao. The nian gao was actually not bad, but by then, I had already lost my mood for eating.
