I am one of those who would like to give small businesses a chance - Live and let live!
However, my 'Kashmiri Food' experience at 'Masala Mahal', a food stall at First Markham place's food court was so bad, I owe it to the chowhound community to report it.
Apparently, this was the second time, members of my family frequented the place. The first time was by my son, who forgot to report his sad experience to me! Sigh! His Chicken Curry was so watery, one dimensional and tasteless, he literally left the whole dish untouched and threw it away.
In my case, the Lamb Quorma I had yesterday did not fare any better. Once again, the curry was super watery and has an unpleasant stench. The taste was bland and boring. Worst still, all the meat were way overcooked and breaking off fromthe bones in tiny shredded pieces.
I tried taking most of the curry home and tried to resurrect it with added curry paste, yogurt and cilantro. Unfortunately, my effort was a failure with the end product still retaining the stinky stench and weird taste. $10 down the drain!
Chowhounder, please beware! Do not be fooled by the artfully taken food photos!
