this is the first time I've had suckling pig that has a gamey taste to it, even though the skin is adequately crisp, but that is to be expected isn't it?
then comes the paprika soup. it's salty beyond anything I've ever tasted in a soup, and my company all agreed. to make matters worse, when i feedback this to the manager, he came back with the chef's explanation that it is ok, that this is how it is prepared in Spain. I proceeded to ask him what does he (the manager) feels after tasting it. he fumbled with an indirect reply saying that's how the soup is meant to be without answering my question. after I kept pushing for his personal opinion, he finally replied saying he thinks it's ok, but it clear that he's simply defending his chef.
much has to be said about all the other food but I think the above just about sums it up. only items that were acceptable were the seafood, oysters and sashimi. but seriously, these do not test the standards of cooking of any restaurant do they?
this is the Hilton afterall. but the food has sorely failed to live up to its reputation. this is the last time I'm ever dining here. even a kopitiam offers better food.
I spent $183 per person.
