Mark McKewan should be ashamed - truly, awful, disgusting take out!

KitchenVoodoo | Jun 11, 2013 06:35 PM

I've eaten in some bad dives all over the world but have NEVER had anything as disgusting or purely revolting as the Saag Lamb on offer tonight from the take out hot counter at McKewan's in Don Mills.
Saag suggests spinach - none was detected.
Lamb suggests lamb - the smell alone suggested goat, and very OLD goat judging from the texture.
And with Lamb Saag - you expect a phenomenal layering of wonderful Indian spices - but not happening in the McKewan way - not a single spice could be detected.
On to the meat - each chunk yielded up new horrors - first bite was all wobbly fat, next up was tough sinew and gristle, next came all silverskin.
All of it had to be ejected. First from my mouth, and subsequently into my green bin.
I'm not sure I'll ever get that greasy goat fat film out of my mouth!
The McKewan "return policy" is highly exclusionary, (the ts&Cs are printed boldly on the bottom of your receipt), so I can't (although I really wish I could) go and throw up that goat stew all over Mark's sterile cheese counter!
$14 down the tubes.
