I usually don't post something bad but this one I just need to cos I don't understand why the place is so crowded (full house in fact... that they have to turned away at least 3 groups of patrons during our short staythere) when the food is lousy. The name, I've no idea... could be just Hong Kong. When we asked, the wait person (whom I presumed is one of the biz partner), just pointed at the logo. Hubby blinked at her and said we are illiterate hehehe... not a good vibe there cos the entire menu is written in Mandarin with just the exception of the two words - Hong Kong. We made her read out the entire menu which is quite substantial, well its just too bad since they don't cater to people who are Mandarin illiterate. Took her extra long serving us hahaha... ohhh my bad!
I guess the reason they were full on a Friday evening was they were new and have been dropping their brochures in the housing estates in Kepong. My dad passed me the brochure and the photos looked enticing. Hence... sighhh...... our visit as KTZ (our first choice) was closed that day.
On the food, hubby had this mango concoction (RM10.00) that have mango cubes, nata de coco, mango puree, pomelo and a scoop of mango ice-cream. Nothing fancy here.
My boiboi's favourite was peanut soup (RM5.50)... came quite bland and lack of peanut taste. He had a few spoonfuls only as compared with KTZ which he can finish one whole bowl on his own. Do note though their serving is quite big for sweet soup but what's the point when we can't finish as it tasted lousy.
My black sesame seeds soup (RM5.50) is starchy and do not have that signature sesame fragrance. I forced myself to eat half of it. I hate wasting food but seriously this was bad. Darn made me lose brownie points for not finishing up my food *bleh*
Next, just look at these durian crepes (RM6.00). We were shocked when they came in neon green colour... urggghhh scarier than Scary Spice! The colour really put us off. Anyway, there's nothing to shout about too.
It was indeed a very sad outing and it's not considerabily cheap. All the 4 items came up to RM27.00.
If you think you had a better time here, please let me know. It could be that they are still very new then but could the chef possibily improve on the food over the past 3 months? I would like to hear from you.
