There will be several postings of the Food Adventure trips in the next few posts. I like to take pictures of the food that I ordered and admire how well some of the dishes have been prepared and presented to me. After all - food is sight, aroma, touch, and taste. It's almost like doing YOGA - the food experience gives us the exhilaration and appreciation in every bites you take. But it's always an ordeal when I go out to dine, even to the ones that your friend recommended. At least anyways, it is a big deal for me because I only have one stomach and once it is filled with that "something" - good or bad, it is in my system. I was quite brave and explored a few restaurants that I have never been to this month. Of course, there is the "Yelp" site that I could go do the postings, but my objective is to learn 'hospitality' management and of personal interest in the culinary adventure.
Here is one - a disappointment at one of the restaurant that I have visited twice before with a good experience with my friends. I was very delighted to meet up with my friends after work one evening at the Sal Thai. Ordered one of my favorite - stir fried eggplants with basil and shrimps. We also order a fish dish. But to our surprise, the eggplants dish is prepared totally different from the usual with all the ingredients that were in the fish dish. What's with that! If I can say, "I can do better than that!" then, this place no longer has anything 'special' to offer to the customer.... maybe I am judging harshly.... but I was disappointed.
