I've been to KE bar several times. The service is generally average and the food is about average but the salads were always raved about.
I took my girlfriend along and we ordered some calamare and one of the "famed" Cesar salads I'd heard so much about.
What I got was some basic gourmet supermarket salad, chewy bacon bits, a couple of strawberry's, a little hard boiled egg, what appeared to be chicken strips (the cooked kind you buy in a supermarket), and a blanket layer of sauce with a striped balsamic dressing on top. It was so much, I couldn't actually see the salad below however since everyone raved about it, I figured why not.
The flavour was sickly and grotesque. This was the "famed" KE Cesar salad?! Had these previous reviewers been on a hunger strike? Did they have their tongues cut out!?
The sauced slopped about everywhere and I managed to eat the (almost), untouched strawberry's along with some of the egg. By which point I felt like vomiting the rest up so I put it to one side and told the waiter.
The snottiness that came out of his mouth was quite something. Apparently I shouldn't have tried the salad and should have taken it back right away. I was also told this was (and I quote), "KE's most popular salad serving 30-40 portions a day...."
Do they have some mayonnaise factory in the back of that place?!!?!? There's an entire jar on my plate! Seriously, Hellman's gives them a deserving discount I'm sure.
The plate was snottily taken away without any apology given.
On arrival of the bill, I was shown the full amount to which I asked for the salad to be removed. (I ate a quarter and didn't much fancy spending 17eur on mayonnaise. I can get a lifetimes supply for that), but even my steel-lined stomach could't hack that much creaminess.
I was promptly rebuffed and asked for at least a 50% reduction in the cost of the salad. Again. Rebuffed.
Moral of this one, don't eat at KE and certainly don't try their utterly disgusting (yet apparently famous) salads.
However on the other hand, if you like a rude, snotty waiter who doesn't give a flying pigs back-end about your meal and service, KE is the place for you.
5/5 for Revolting food and snotty service.
