What a day!
I went grocery shopping at both T&T ( Warden/Steeles location ) and Metro this morning. Bought two 'never tried before' products which ended up to be absolutely HORRIBLE!
At T&T, after noticing quite a few customers lining up at the Dim Sum counter to get Har Gow ( steamed shrimp dumpling ), out of curiosty, I followed suit and bought some! What a big mistake! The Har Gow must be one of the worst in town! Supposedly with paper thin and translucent skin wrapper, this T&T products has skin the thickness of perogy!! The shrimp filling was mushy instead of crunchy with loads of corn starch fillers. A totally unappealing tasting experience!!
Next, I made my way to Metro for some western groceries. There, I noticed some nicely packaged 'Irresistable Brand' Proscuitto. Man! This product was even worse than the previous one! One taste of this ham and I nearly threw up!! It must be the saltiest Proscuitto I have ever eaten! In my mouth, whilst chewing, I could actually bite into 'grains of salt'!! A closer look at the ham slices revealed every surface was scattered and covered with fine grains of them! Never have I seen salt cured products like this in my life!! 'Irresistable'!! - My foot!!
Just like that, $10 down the drain!!
