Like the name of a well-known OR member: 唔食都知唔好食! Oct 08, 2010
I have always passed by this place when I go to Amoy Plaza and wondered if this place is a hidden gem in Kowloon Bay. So after going to the bank during my lunch break, I decided to give this place a try. After reading the review from a previous poster, I ordered the Sashimi Rice set with a Green Tea to go. As soon I saw the pre-packed sushi at the refrigerator, I started to feel a sense of regret for ordering the Sashimi Rice. I could tell the fish weren't even semi-fresh by the the colors of the fish. Nevertheless, I told myself that I shouldn't expect too much for a $30 lunch set. Got my food and headed back to my office.
As soon as I opened the bag, I was due for a surprise. The rice and the "sashimi" were placed separately as shown in the picture above and 80% of it was imitation crab meat. Aside from the mountain of imitation rice,there were some discolored tuna bits, two tiny pieces of salmon and a few unknown elements. At that moment, I suddenly recalled the name of a well-known OR member: 唔食都知唔好食. So I tried a piece of the tuna and I immediately thought I was chewing on a piece of pork, then I had the tiny piece of salmon bit and it tasted like nothing. Finally, I tried the imitation crab meat and realized that they were the best part of the whole set. I was thankful that 80% of the "sashimi" was composed of the imitation crab meat. 3/10
Attempting to washed away the taste of this so-called sashimi rice, I took a gulp of the "green tea". After a little bit of struggle, I swallowed it and the amount of sugar syrup in the ""green tea" was overwhelming. There was absolutely no flavor nor smell of green tea in this drink and I had no choice but to toss it out. Come on, how can you called this a green tea at all? 2/10
Even though I knew the saying of 一分錢一分貨, but this meal has definitely captured the essence of it. Looks like I won't be returning this place anytime soon if not never.
P.S. On the bright side, I did not get a stomach ache from this meal. Thank God!
