After reading an article on the so-called China Chili restaurant and its great reviews, I was eager to try it out.
This was our first time eating at China Chili (China Torture is what I prefer to call it), and will probably be the last. We ordered the Mongolian beef, sautéed sliced beef with onions on crispy noodle. The beef was over seasoned and the onions over powered the dish. The paper thin sliced beef was tender due to meat tenderizer. It was better than the other dish (Eggplant sautéed with garlic sauce). It was suppose to be a traditional dish that any children from China can cook with their eyes closed, but it turned out that was not the case. The dish itself was saturated with OIL and chili pepper on top of the overcooked eggplant.
I guessed I had too much expectation in finding a decent Chinese restaurant, or maybe the chef had an off day…Yeah right. If this is what they (China Chili) called authentic Chinese food, pass me a bag of Ramen noodle and some hot water please.
As for the service, it was excellent. The waiter checked on us often. The amount of space between tables was good so diners get some privacy. Speaking of table, one thing that came to mind – the table cloth had a foul odor that place the restaurant’s cleanliness to question. I pondered on this as I rushed myself to consume what I can and leave in a hurry before it asphyxiates me.
All in all, this place should be place on the AVOID list. As I was writing this review, someone approached me and said Ratatouille. This brought a grin to my face. Not “anyone can cook.”
