You know, I love it when we go to a new restaurant or City/Country whatever and come home and share with you what we ate, saw or did. This weekend was not that kind of weekend.
We found that, going to two restaurants – one we had tried previously and liked are never to return by us and a new one which is better nameless.
Both of us are always looking for a good Chinese Restaurant, similar to our favourite in Burnaby, and have never come close. We tried a local establishment on Saturday and will never return. I felt so ill afterwards and it affected Don the next morning. The choice was dismal to say the least. No sauces for the over-fried and dried out chicken/seafood/beef and pork dishes. No offer of Chinese tea (a must with any and all restaurants we have eaten in) and had to ask finally. No one came to see if we even liked the food or needed anything the entire time we sat there.
The other restaurant, Piper’s, again got everything wrong. Don ordered a ‘seafood chowder’ which, it said, consisted of salmon, shrimp, clams, and white fish ….well it came and there was no salmon, shrimp or clams. The server said it “really isn’t what the menu says. It just isn’t.” All Don had was white fish pieces.
I ordered the lunch special – a broccoli and cheese cup of soup and 1/2 cheese and bacon sandwich. Sounds good, right? Not so much. The broccoli consisted of huge hunks of broccoli thick stems in a large bowl and the sandwich was truly uncooked bacon flopping out of a squished down sandwich.
Sorry, guys…it just wasn’t the same. There was only 7 patrons in this very large restaurant for Noon on a Saturday.
Oh well, onward and there are many, many more restaurants. Like Sunday for Noon we went to Original Joe’s. Can you guess what I had? HA!
