What is the problem with this city? Every time I think I've had the worst meal (First and Last Tavern, the old Alfredo's) I go to a new spot that sinks even lower.
Went to this place last of those "upscale" Asian places and should have been tipped off by the nearly empty dining room. Had that desperate air of a restaurant that has already given up. Had short ribs with some convoluted asian spices that didn't taste right. Just two square hunks of beef swimming in a tasleless brown sauce with three little bok choy pieces drowning in the same juice and a handful of old thick stuck together noodles. It was really really dismal. And not cheap. Finished less than half of it and got the hell out of there. I'm sure this place will be boarded up the next time I come to Middletown.
