Lao Beijing

This is a Tung Lok restaurant, so it’s clearly of a certain standard already. Food-wise, there wasn’t anything to complain of. We had the Dan Dan Mian, the Xiao Long Bao, and something that was described in the menu as ‘crispy boneless chicken served with egg pancake and cucumber’.

With a description like that, I expected a chicken version of peking duck, so imagine our surprise when it arrived, with mini man tou instead, and no cucumber in sight. We thought we read the menu wrongly, so we checked it again but the description was clear as day. We couldn’t take it and decided to ask the waitress about it. She nonchalantly said, oh the description in the menu is wrong. !!!!!

We asked if they had any egg pancake (knowing full well they did because another table was having them with another dish), and she said yes. And STILL didn’t make any attempt at offering to give us the dish that we had actually ordered. In the end we had to demand that she take back the man tou, and give us some egg pancakes and cucumbers.

In the end, the food was pretty good but the service really did it in for me.

Most of the staff seemed to know what they were doing except the woman we got. I may give it a second chance, but most likely not. There are better places to get the same thing.
