ishbilya - downhill alert [London]

it pains me to write this.

my last meal was awful. but not awful in a made-some-mistakes way, but cynically awful. everything looked like it was supposed to, but there was a complete and total lack of flavor. the chicken taouk was cardboard, the kafta kash kash rubbery. mezze were rank - the rahib was tasteless, the hummus felt like the chickpeas were out of a can. on and on it went.

what on earth happened?! it was so bad that i don't even dare hope it was an off night - you can't recover from that sort of insult.
