I got the Orange Chicken Dinner Special. I was really excited when the put it down in front of me. The orange chicken looked perfect – just the right color and an appetizing glaze. Upon tasting it, however, I was disappointed.
I’ve had a lot of meat analogues, but never I have I tasted one like this. The texture was fine, but it had a strange aftertaste. It wasn’t bad, but it was off-putting enough that I didn’t finish it.
The fried rice was decent but on the bland side, the salad was also decent with a pleasant peanut dressing, but the spring roll was by far the best part of the dish. It tasted vaguely crab-like (even though I think the last time I had crab was 15 years ago) and I wished I had more than one.
Stewart got a Chicken wrap which he didn’t like at all:
A side of perfectly executed french fires:
And we shared the Banana Spring Roll for Dessert:
The banana spring roll was tasty, if a bit oily. They lined won ton wrappers with shredded coconut and placed a whole banana inside, wrapped it up, deep fried it and served it with chocolate and cherry sauce. It was pretty good, but I ended up scraping out the coconut from the last piece because I’m a terrible dinner date.
