Obviously, Sapa Rooms has lost a chef or changed hands, because the food we experienced tonight was completely inedible.
We were originally drawn in by both the reviews on Tripadvisor and the bohemian and stylish ambience. Our first alarm bells started ringing when we saw the meager display of Saran-wrapped, sweaty "cakes" which consisted mostly of sad slices of banana bread. More alarm bells started when almost all the items on the menu were "unavailable". The only dessert available on their desert menu was apple passionfruit crumble. Most people are aware that a crumble is simply fruit topped with flour, butter, sugar, and some nuts, then baked. Most people able to use google would also easily be able to determine this. Unfortunately, this was beyond the culinary ability of Sapa Rooms. I was presented with a handful of soggy, boiled apple slices strewn with the crumbs and powdered remains of what was once some kind of almond cookie. The passion fruit aspect of the desert was half an unripe fruit placed beside the bizarre interpretation of crumble. The ice cream (chocolate, since they had run out of vanilla), had the strangely crunchy consistency of ice cream which has been thawed, then refrozen, in the back of your freezer for six months. Yes, there were crumbles. Yes, there were apples. Yes, there was passionfruit. Was this a passionfruit apple crumble? Sadly, no.
To the owners of Sapa Rooms, I sincerely encourage you to take on some quality control and use the vast resources of the Internet to help you differentiate between food and folly.
