For some reasons (don’t ask) I found myself at Kim Gary in Sunway Pyramid for dinner just the other weekend. Not knowing what to order as I have yet to find something that is actually any good from the restaurant, I turned around and look at the nice big poster promoting their new Stoned Grilled Unagi Rice and promptly asked for that instead.
I couldn’t finish this crap
I thought since I love unagi, I couldn’t go wrong with the decision. *beep* – wrong.
When I first saw the dish, it was the size of the unagi that caught my eyes, or shall I say, almost escaped my eyes. The big poster (top right) showed a nice chunk of eel filet, but in reality it was only half of that, equivalent to about 1.5 sushi. I was going to make a complaint, then I noticed that the picture (smaller of course) of the same dish in the menu actually spotted the tiny portion of Unagi. Borderline false advertising, but they cover their asses well.
The presentation for the food was actually not half bad sans the tiny unagi. However, the dish came with the unagi sauce instead of soya sauce, and there was no wasabi either. I began to wonder why they called it “Japanese style”. A bite later, all hope was lost, as they never bothered to use proper Japanese rice.
Worse still, it was actually Stoned Grilled Rice with Unagi instead of Stoned Grilled Unagi Rice. The bottom part of the rice was all burnt, I had no idea why they made the rice bowl that hot.
When the waiter came and clear the table, he didn’t ask why I had no finish the food. I took the initiative of telling him how bad the rice were, and all he answered “you have to stir the rice at the beginning“. And I thought it was a bad habit stirring your dish like a washing machine before eating.
By the way, if you need some ketchup, Kim Gary served them in packets so you can have the feeling that you are eating take-out orders from McDonald’s, how nice. -.-”
I am not likely to ever go there again.
p/s: I realise some of you come to this blog to look for recommendation of good food, hence I apologize for having to make a post of a bad dining experience. I’ll keep this to a minimum.
