Pinang - So Disappointed

in bocca | May 17, 2011 08:08 AM

After raving about Pinang and their excellent food, I went there for dinner on Friday expecting more of the same and to leave impressed. I certainly did not. The waitress was slow, rude and unaccomodating to regular requests ( for example, may we have an extra wine glass?). This was an outing for my monthly girls night where we try to have or make various types of cuisine. None of the other diners had eaten there before and this was not a good impression.

The food arrived at scattered intervals, appetizers, soups, entrees in a blur. Some were just starting their appetizers while I was enjoying some pineapple fried rice. Until, oh wait, what's that? Glass. Yes, shards, of glass in my rice. I found five about the size of peas after biting down on two of them. I was totally repulsed. Stopped eating immediately and alerted the "awesome" server. She apologized and then tried to charge me for the rice. Needless to say, I did not pay and left promptly after.

I am so disappointed that this is the impression I and my friends will forever have of Pinang.
