There are restaurants that would devote the concept of artistic gastronomy, which is reflecting on the human thoughts of the labor of love. Conversely, there are restaurants that do not give a shit about customers' emotions and thoughts on their foods but only concerning the concept of mass unhealthy food productions.
I have a yellow body and wandering around the city looking for a restaurant that could call me back for the next time, while I could say "I am hungry for more."
I went to Applebee's Fish restaurant on August 30th, 2020.
Address: 5 Stoney St, London SE1 9AA
The restaurant's design is pleasant and the staffs are "quite" friendly. I did not wait very long to get ready to seat in the restaurant. I like the atmosphere that the kitchen openly displays in the public. Because of this, I felt that there was a sense of security knowing where is my food coming from and how the food is making by the hands of the chief. However, I saw a fly more or less approach to my table, that I was worried that the fly would seat on my plate.
When I had ordered thick french fries, Middleterran steak tuna, a cup of coffee, and butter garlic scallops. I had asked the waiter where were the fishes specifically coming from, that she had a confident tone asking the question of what I had given, which is showing the staff care about the root of food production such as import. Nevertheless, the stuff was forgetting about what I had ordered for drinks, then I had to reply again to what I had ordered on drinks. On the other hand, the waiters are not servicing the table individually, which would lead to a certain communication in the restaurant system. For example, there was another waiter asked me again what I would like to order, then I order the french fries as an additional order. Sadly, he did not ask me whatever I want the french fries as the first course or second course.
The experience on the first-course Garlic butter scallops.
The price is overwhelmingly experience, 12 pounds for two scallops.
The taste of the food is good and the presentation is good. I could feel the sweetness of scallops, and slightly garlic and butter. Despite the first bite would make me feel the five stars and fanciness, I wish the garlic and butter could be more significant, that I feel the color of these two elements not cooperate with the sweetness enough. An analogy would be like, a dancer (garlic and butter) aim to engage with his/her partner, but the dancer (sweetness) has a lack of encouragement.
The experience of the second course: Mediterranean Tuna Steak and French Fries (French Fries is not getting asked by placing as the first or second course).
Mediterranean Tuna Steak is good. I like the Tuna steak, which was well cooked on point medium and rare. The flavor of olive oil surrounds the Tuna Steak. The eggplants and the yellow cucumber placed under the Tuna steak. There is sweet yellow pepper place under the Tuna steak as well. I assume there is spicy pepper, but it tasted quite sweet, I could not feel spicy. The first bite of Tuna steak with olive oil, that I could feel the smell of Mediterranean. I also liked to eat the Tuna steak with the eggplants and the other vegetables, which are sweet and fresh. Nevertheless, the yellow cucumber is not well seasons enough, that it tasted plain. This dish was closed to my idealization, but yellow cucumber.
On the other hand, I was disappointed with the thick hand made French Fries. Despite there are fries taste good, which is thick, there are other fries too thin. These thin fries got overcook, that the taste of fries was not respected the principle of the menu title "thickness." These think fries got overcook, which also showed there was a lack of careless from the person who cooks this course. Maybe the restaurant was almost closed at the end, that the chief did not concentrate on this particular french fries enough. I had pointed it out to the waiter/staff, the staff had noticed it. But, they did not sort it out the solution of this issue, instead of bringing the check and indirectly forcing me to pay this unpleasant French Fries experience. Because of this, when the waiter asked me whatever I still want to order dessert as a means of getting through the third course, that I did not have the consistency of desire want to seat in the restaurant by feeling a little bit sense of unwelcoming.
Will I go back to Applebee's Fish?
............questionable and doubtable.....
