High Tea@Pool Side/漢來池畔下午茶

High Tea@Pool Side/漢來池畔下午茶

Rating: Price of five star restaurant, four star food, diner setting, and mediocre service. Worth a Shot, if you are getting by-one-get-one-free deal. My experience here makes me miss La Grâce.

評等:五星級的價錢,四星級的餐點,普通餐廳的規格,一般的服務。值得一嚐,如果是買一送一的話。零北想念大八法式創意牛排館了。

Their food was so delicious that almost worthy of their five-star-hotel status, if their bread had been western style, and salad chunks bite sized.

餐點很美味,差一點點就值五星了。漆掉在台式麵包跟沙拉。沙拉太大塊,無法用叉子插起,送入口中。

Bread ala Formosan/台式麵包:
有蓋棉被,讚。

Butter/奶油:
零北重口味。這點不夠用。我錯了:不該想用眼神來引起服務生的注意,應該學沒見過世面的土包子般大聲叫。
This much butter was not quite enough for me. It takes more than eye contact to get the attention of the servers.

Kim Chi Pork Fried Rice/泡菜豬肉炒飯:
擺盤有立體感,炒得顆粒分明,味道有層次,各種味道在衝突間取得平衡。高。可惜有點淡。在給客人自己調味的西餐,這本來不算是缺點,可是桌上沒有鹽與胡椒:想來是要充高級,胡椒讓服務生現磨。可是人力不足。等嚐出需要調味時,已經找不到服務生了;等找到服務生,餐點已經冷了。

Well made and presented. However, at the absence of table salt and pepper, the service of the servers was not prompt enough to season this dish before it got cold.

Club Sandwich/總匯三明治:
Flawless/雞蛋裡挑不出骨頭。

Liberate My Ass French Fries/炸薯條:

Black Tea Cake/ 紅茶蛋糕:
I guess it gets its name by mimicking the taste of black tea. Quite intriguing.
我猜紅茶蛋糕的名字來自模擬檸檬紅茶的味道。很有趣。

Cafe Late to the left, and Cappuccino right/左邊的是咖啡拿鐵;右邊的是卡布其諾:

Their service is courteous, but not professional. Their service is the counter example of a good service: intrusive, yet not taking care of customer's needs. The staff were not actively concern about our needs. We had to try to get their attention. They also made announcements on tasks they were about to perform before doing it. Apparently they were not taught on the concept of being non-intrusive at all.

服務有禮,但不專業。他們的服務剛好是反面教材:既沒照顧好顧客,還打擾到顧客。他們不會主動關心我們的需要,更不會注意我們是否有需要服務。我們需要想辦法引起他們的注意。服務前,他們還會很臺地宣告他們即將服務的事項

This establishment uses paper napkin, paper placemat with advertisement, and no table cloth. Although they are charging five star regular price, it would be wise to consider this place a diner. When rating this establishment as a diner, its value is good if you can get their buy-one-get-one-free deal.

池畔用的是紙餐巾、紙桌墊還印有廣告,而且沒有鋪桌布。雖然原價是五星級的,但是規格只有簡餐餐廳。所以只配跟簡餐餐廳比。也就是說,當有買一送一時,池畔的C/P值就及格了。
