With the title above, I need to state why. Read on if you are curious.
Cheese Fondue- $25-
was supposed to be a mix of Emnental cheese with white wine. It was so watery. I wonder if a cheese fondue should have such thinness.It was combined with ham(which was nice), asparagus, sauteed onions, baguette, carrot sticks, celery sticks.
Dark Chocolate Fondue- $25
The consistency was LUMPY... yewl.. too thick you might wonder? I don't think so.. I just think they didn't stir it well enough when they were melting the chocolate.. yet they dared to serve it. totally unexpected. Even Haagen Dazz chocolate fondue is so much better. It was served with raspberries(not fresh), strawberries(normal only), mini cookies(not bad), madeleines(stale!, totally not fresh)
The essence of fondues are not only the main ingredients served with it, but also the chocolate and cheese. With the main actors gone awry, how can you expect to enjoy your meal?
The sticks used to dip the fondues were old and the red portion of the sticks were quite loose, hence the handling of it could be slipped out easily. They did not have the initiative to offer us 2 separate sticks since we ordered both cheese and chocolate fondues, which meant that the chocolate could have been mixed with the cheese if we didn't use out forks instead.
They also did not have the initiative to offer us water after we had ordered our drinks.
The only thing nice about the 2 fondues, was that it came in a nice looking pot with a single tealight. Would you rather have a nice looking layout or yewl tasting food?
Chicken Tikka- $9 aesthetically, it looked ok, but when you dip it in the sauce, which was supposed to be mint chutney, was bad sauce. the yogurt was watery, so was the mint in it, so watered down.
Drinks - Sizzle - mix of orange lemon and strawberry puree- I didn't like the rind in it..very crude pcs.. yewl.. $14
Mango Mint- probably more suitable as a sauce - $14
Erdinger - probably the best ordered. But you can't go wrong with Erdinger - $16
Going on a Sunday is no good too, there wasn't a band.
Review: Terrible! Don't back here unless you really have nothing to do and perhaps just want a drink. No ambience. It was very distracting to see the visitors walking by.
