Mission Chinese - Put down the Kool Aid

Renguin | Sep 17, 2012 09:14 AM

Ok, So i FINALLY went here last night. I felt I was prepared - I was not expecting anything traditional but some sort of new/unique interpretation of Chinese food. What I felt I got was slightly tweaked versions of real dishes that were so-so and just left me feeling like I was at a not great regular Chinese restaurant.

I got:

Pork Jowl
Fish Frangrant Eggplant
Cumin Lamb.

The cumin lamb was probably the worst version of it I've had at any restaurant ever. It wasn't terrible but it was only OK and its usually quite good anywhere else that bothers to make it. Pork Jowl I thought was kind of boring and the eggplant I thought was just a mediocre version of egglplant in garlic sauce. Again, it wasn't new or innovative, it was just an ok version of a real dish. Why are people waiting on line here? What is with all the type? Am I taking crazy pills? I would never order any of the dishes I got again and with that type of a miss rate I have no desire to go back to give it a second try on the chance I did a terrible job ordering the first time. Any others in the same boat?
