We planned to use up one of our groupon's voucher today at Cheesecake Amore. The restaurant looks quaint and cosy and with the tree right in front of the restaurant it makes the restaurant's exterior, looking very Italian Cottage style ...
But our day actually starts with an Art Festival with TOto, and you can read it here.
We are the first few customers to arrives and we didn't makes a reservation so we are seated at the Bar Counter. The restaurant sure is small, which explains why if you are coming, its NECESSARY to make a reservation.
There were notmuch variety of food offered, and based on our Groupon voucher we can choose; 1 appetizer 2 main entree and 1 dessert.
It seems like most people are here for the wines and alcohol that is available here but we don't drink and hubba ordered a can of coke.
We ordered the Crab Cake for apeptizer, and both of us like it and agrees that it is freshly made and not the frozen types. We are impressed with the first dish and had very high expectation for the main entree that will be coming soon!
Every main entree comes with a small plate of very plain Cesar Salad.
I ordered the Salmon with Garlic Dijon Sauce.
Looking at the presentation, *NOT IMPRESS* again!
And my Hubba ordered the Chicken Amor.
When his ordered came, I am not even sure where is his chicken. This is the smallest piece of chicken breast I see on a plate in a restaurant setting!
OK let's be real.
There is only ONE WORD; SUCKS!
The salmon is pan fried with some random seasoning and pan-fried till the fish is too dry to be swallowed down. And if your fish is THAT SUCKY at least make sure the sauce is good to coverup the dry fish. Firstly the sauce just tasted sourish, and nothing else. There is NO DIMENSION to the sauce, it's like literally adding Dijon to Ketchup and called them 'sauce' and I was given that little bit of sauce, it doesn't helps with the DRY FISH at all! And, I was discussing with Hubba how come a oily fish like Salmon can be so dry and there isn't any 'oily' Salmon taste at all. And we both came to the CONCLUSION, the Salmon is FROZEN fish!
And they charges USD17+ for this piece of FROZEN JUNK!
Next, The Chicken Amore is the same, the chicken breast is just DRY and tough! The sauce is nothing to boast about too. Hubba says the sauce just tasted like most prepacked sauce you find in Walmart!
We really have to 'FORCE' ourselves to finish the dishes because it is not us to waste food. But in actual fact Hubba finished most of it. I just couldn't stomach the freaking DRY and TOUGH salmon!
The mashed is OK, normal kinda of mash that I CAN DO better at home too! Maybe the mashed is abit better than KFC? This whole meal is just a DISASTER, and I cannot remember when I had such bad restaurant's food.
Dessert is next and hoping for the best ...
There were quite a variety of Cheesecake available, and we chosen the safe flavour; Chocolate.
After having some, we seriously doubt they are 'freshly' made too!
There is no 'freshness', it just tasted General too.
Nothing to boast about, it's cheesecake; FULLSTOP.
Don't be misleaded by our 'looked-liked' we are very happy photograph, hahaha!
This is definitely ONE of the WORST DINNER in a restaurant that I ever have!
I am not a very CHOOSY diner but this is really BAD BAD BAD BAD to the CORE.
I think I can cook so much better than the CHEF!
If they can serve these JUNK-DRY-tasteless; fish and chicken to a customer, the owner should really call GORDON RAMSEY to help save the business!
Don't waste your money if you are intending to get the Groupon Voucher, not worth the time to drives all the way over. Come to think of it, USD25.00 for this meal is totally NOT WORTH it!
