New Ho King ...never again

Minister of Kebab | Apr 2, 2010 06:41 PM

Just ate ...or rather threw away some of the nastiest, most tasteless and generally awful Chinese food we've ever had. After much back and forth, and after seeing a couple of ok to good reviews on chow..thought we'd give it a try.

Ok is good friday...and i am sure they were busy...but.....

The moo-shoo veg was described by my partner as "crude, slimy, foul-tasting and off-putting" suspecting a certain pickiness might be at play...I sampled the dish and yes...i can attest, the single worst moo-shoo veg i have ever tasted in 20 years in Canada...and Europe heck even including the UK....and i eat a lot of chinese food.

How to sum up the dish...well... take one bucket of well past fresh bean sprouts,when they start to smell a little and slime in the fridge......then add one mg of soy..couple of old bits of mushroom throw in a pan and cook until fully slimy...that pretty much sums it up. no seasoning, no bite, no spicing, no nada. Utterly awful.

The obviously pre-frozen, vegetarian spring rolls had been so completely cremated that it was hard to tell what was a bit of burnt shell from possible bits of charred pork...inside the VEGGIE spring rolls...which wouldn't be surprising as multiple pieces were pulled from the inedible and "certainly vegetarian" moo-shoo veg.

and on and on it could go...Barbecue ribs, so dry, so old, so stringy and so tasteless...
a beef dish containing beef with no discernible taste of anything - sat gracefully on a cold congealed wedge of overcooked rice noodle. Gotta say, after 20 odd years living in Toronto, this comes right near the top of worst chinese food experience ever.

So.....New Ho...err no.
