Mediocre Brunch Featured Review

So it was Sunday and we had planned lunch at Hooters with some friends, but when we showed up we found out that Hooters was closed. We decided to give this place a try, given that it had the same "over the top American" angle. The first thing I noticed upon arriving was the terrible seating. We were seated in the very back around a table. One side of the table had two low, backless stools, which are just FRANKly, not in the BALLPARK of comfortable (OK, sorry, I won't do the America-themed puns). The other side had a bench with a classic car theme, but the seat sloped down at a reasonably steep angle, also rendering it uncomfortable to sit on. I don't know if they're trying to promote a quick turnaround, or they just don't care about how comfortable their seats are, but I'll just say that a relaxing Sunday meal is a lot less relaxing when your posterior hurts and you can't lean back.The second thing was that they were only serving the brunch menu. It was nice of them to have a big sign out front clearly indicating this (I'm guessing they got complaints in the past), but it's also relatively disappointing. I mean, during the regular work week, it's rare that I can make it to far away places for lunch, so the weekend is the time for me to try such places. If they eliminate half the days of the weekend for the regular menu, that's even fewer chances for me to try stuff. Also, it's difficult to see the point: do the Sunday chefs only know how to cook one of the burgers on the menu? Cuz if they know how to cook them all, why don't they just serve them all?The drinks menu was clearly typed up by someone who didn't know what any of the drinks were. I ordered a "Stones" IPA from "Michagan." Questionable spelling aside, though, it's certainly a good choice, and the beer menu had a nice selection. One thing though: I wanted to drink my beer from a glass. The server brought glasses, but they were all hot from being washed, and I wasn't going to pour my cold beer into a hot glass. I decided on the Southern Fried Chicken Burger, "A Buttermilk fried chicken breast with bacon, lettuce & smoky mayo." Now I am not a big sauces person and I don't like anyone who isn't me to put condiments on my food-- ketchup, mustard, mayo, butter, vinegar, whatever, you-name-it-- let me do it. For some reason most chefs seem to despise their own food and want to sauce its flavor out of existence. Don't drown your food, kids. Anyway, I ordered, and I quote, "the southern fried chicken burger, but can I have the mayonnaise on the side?" The server then asked me, "You want the smoky mayo on the side?" "Yes," I said. You can guess what happened when the food came.That's right, the sauce isn't on the side. At first I thought I'd just live with it, because there seemed to be only a little sauce. After a few bites I realized (a) there was sauce on the bottom bun too, and no small amount; (b) I was not enjoying my food; and (c) it was not my fault that I was not enjoying my food. So I returned it. The server did apologize, but seemed pretty unexcited to take the food back. I think she might have gotten in trouble, which was not my intention. Later the manager (? why do these people never introduce themselves?) apologized and took 10% off the bill and remitted the service charge. I know one doesn't look gift horses in the mouth, but I was somewhat ambivalent about that. If the service charge goes to the server for service, then making one error is not equivalent to providing no service and deserving no payment. But whatever, I wasn't going to complain a second time.Replacement burger.The southern fried chicken on its own was pretty good. The chicken was tender and the breading was well-seasoned and, on its own, well apportioned. This however was not true with regard to the chicken on the burger, since there were two pieces of chicken and they overlapped on the bun. Thus there was twice as much breading and when you add in the actual bread-bread that the sandwich came on, the totality-of-bread to chicken ratio was, in my opinion, off. And there was nothing really to alleviate the breadiness. The lettuce of course was nice, but in my personal sandwich/ burger philosophy, tomatoes and pickles rule the roost. Tomatoes for meatiness, juiciness, and contrast, and pickles for their vinegary zing. Indeed, the classic southern fried chicken burger has only pickles on it (think Chick-fil-A). So in the end, I liked the fried chicken, and I could see myself ordering just the fried chicken off the menu, but as a burger I don't think it worked. (Note: in the picture, I've attempted adding coleslaw. It wasn't quite right either.)We also got the mac and cheese balls, "America's favorite comfort food in a crispy crumb with a touch of jalapeno and a side of fresh tomato & basil sauce." I liked these a bunch. The breaded exterior had an appropriate crisp to it, the macaroni was a good choice--these ribbed elbow macaroni that kept firm and retained  cheese well-- and the gooiness factor and the cheesy flavor were just about perfect. I even liked the pickled jalapenos they sprinkled on top; the few I ate actually had some kick to them. (There was one menu item that was not on the brunch menu which I really wanted to try: the fried, pickled jalapeno chips with ranch dressing.) I even thought that while the marinara sauce was unnecessary, it was a nice nod to the mozzarella stick.My wife got a breakfast skillet. The brunch menu is not on their website at this moment, so I can't give you the restaurant's rundown. (I'll also note that the menu on the website differs from the in-store menu as well.) My wife asked for her eggs over hard. The server didn't quite seem to know what that was (I guess it's not a common order), but the eggs came out and she thought they were more overcooked than over hard. On the other hand, my pregnant friend also got a skillet and she wanted her scrambled eggs completely cooked though and very dry, making a special request to this effect, and she was very happy with the result. The skillet seemed very un-American, as we don't eat roasted tomatoes, mushrooms, and baked beans [I'm typing this while sneering], but of course it's what my wife wanted, so that's not a complaint. Avocados are very American but here they seemed rather afterthought-y. Aside from the eggs, my wife's only other comment was that the hashbrowns were terrible, soggy, crispless, and unappealing in appearance. I guess that's four comments. Anyway, she was tepid in her appraisal of the meal.My other friend got the breakfast burrito. I didn't grill him on all the details, but he did say the chorizo wasn't very flavorful. It's hard to mess up eggs and cheese in a tortilla, so I'm sure it was fine, but my friend certainly didn't seem to think it'd win any awards.So there was a minor service snafu. That in itself didn't bother me, but because I had to return my food, the entire meal had to be about that. They sent the server back out to apologize to me (again), this time with some wholly unnecessary explanation, the manager (?) came over to apologize, the manager (?) checked on us several more times, we got an apology at the end, it just kept going. I'm sure there are people who want-- nay demand-- sniveling obeisance when the service isn't perfect, but that too isn't very American. Servers are people, they make mistakes, give me an honest "I'm sorry, I'll fix that," and you're golden. But setting that aside, the reason for my "OK" review is the food. My wife thought her skillet was OK, I thought the chicken burger was OK, and my friend thought his burrito was OK. There was absolutely nothing special about any of it. Hey, I might come back because the non-brunch menu looks interesting (fried jalapenos with ranch, OMG!), but the food we had this time was only OK. continue reading

I have always been a little fan of The Diner - because it reminds me of the good times studying in the States - a very American neighbourhood style burger place! This time I asked a friend to try out its lunch set for the first time. $99 for a 2-course and $129 for a 3-course. We picked the Open Sandwich and Sliders as our choice of mains. For Sliders, there were pulled pork and fried chicken mini-sliders. I must say the deep fried chicken was so nicely done (although I usually don't really like deep fried chicken). The meat was so smooth while being excitingly and juicy! The pulled pork one was alright. The Open Sandwich was GREAT for avocado fans like myself. It was presented in a way very similar to the avocado toast available in many brunch places. But for this one - you get the actual avocado instead of pastes. The chicken is also really nicely grilled! For dessert we chose the Pecan Pie - I am such a nutty-tarty person. I almost finished the whole dessert without getting assistance from my friend. Again this dish really reminded me of the homemade pies and tarts every mom could master in downtown neighbourhoods in the States. Miss them!The Diner is really a great choice for lunch (and in fact, for dinner as well). I personally am really into this place. But well - to give a more complete side of the story - the restaurant does not get as positive feedback from my friends. Many would think it's a soso burger place. From what I recalled I do think their burger steak was done just alright. I would say it probably still worth a try if you're looking for some new burger places.  continue reading

漢堡、薯條、奶昔呢D重口味野不嬲好少食,不過講到世紀邪惡緊係3樣一齊黎先夠興奮,就會要減肥都係食完先減!The Diner裝修陳設都保留50年代風格,美式裝飾、車牌、海報及霓虹燈,令人彷彿置身美國中西部酒吧一樣。同行朋友推薦一定要叫呢個skirt burger,其實係一大塊飛碟咁大既燒芝士,用極上芝士煎溶煎脆,夾著燒洋蔥配smoky mayo 醬,輕輕烘過麵包入口鬆軟,口味微甜,配合成個邪惡組合,係有互相輝映之效。The skirt burger$169,今日重頭戲,燒芝士係平日size一倍,夠哂邪惡!Pulled Pork Burger $139 – 小編同行朋友唔食牛,揀左個豬肉漢堡,感覺一樣認真。Chipotle Chicken wings $88 比起 Burger 感覺較普通。Salmon Superfood $158 – 食咁多油膩野落肚,食返個沙律balance 返,牛油果、沙律菜係清新配搭,上面煎三文魚柳更加唔係吝嗇之作。(前)M&M milkshake HK$78 (後) Banana MilkshakeHK$78 – 邪惡點少得milkshake continue reading

周一晚上六点来,只有几个人。点了Big John和啤酒。汉堡包含了薯条和沙拉。没点特色的skirt,因为想吃blue cheese。味道不错,但不太喜欢面包,没什么香味,肉饼有点儿小。薯条很脆,沙拉一般。 continue reading
