We finally got to try this cute little British restaurant on Tung Street. We had to wait outside for 30-ish mins for the window seats (I believe it's called al fresco), which we had absolutely no problem with!Looks like a cozy place to chill. And yes they have a cute company car lolThey didn't have many food choices, in fact, there were only 5 options for lunch but that was okay, good restaurants usually don't have a large variety of choices (apparently, they proved me wrong). We ordered Set A w
When the hash brown came, we were really excited because it looks über delicious. The portion was quite generous: four slices of bacon, one perfectly-cooked runny egg, a skillet full of hash brown, some diced mushrooms, some cream cheese (I assume it was) and a slice of toasted bread.
It just looked amazing especially when it was served with a skillet. But, a huge BUT, after I had my first bite I was so disappointed. Not only it was almost tasteless, the hash brown base was totally unexpectedly hard. Not that it wasn't crispy but the potato was really hard that I started to doubt if it was fully cooked. Imagine it felt like eating sliced apple or peach (may be a rotten one).
The only thing I liked about the dish was those sautéed mushrooms. We managed to finish the whole dish because we added a lot of table salt & black pepper, and we didn't want to waste food. Roasted Chicken Breast with Waldorf Salad
I have to say it was a rather small portion considering they charged an exorbitant price. I only ordered it because of its sexy name. First, the presentation was not quite compelling. Chicken breast was alright, it was tender yet a bit tasteless; the salad was total rubbish (don't mean to be rude but it really was amateur), I swear they have even better salad at Starbucks; don't even get me started on that two slices of toasted bread, they were just hard and they hurt the roof of my mouth.
Please tell me I am not the only one that don't like hard and cold toasts!
The staff was generally friendly and approachable, except one. This particular guy he looked/ sounded really welcoming but there was something about him that was not so welcoming at the same time. You could just feel it ugh!
It was not a very filling/satisfying meal (we actually went to Hollywood Road for much yummier burgers afterward), I don't reckon I would ever go back again.
Other Info. : For all the furnitures in the restaurant, they put a price tag on them because you can actually buy them from the shop Growth Ring & Supply. We really liked those bar stools we sat on!(The above review is the personal opinion of an user which does not represent OpenRice's point of view.)
