The restaurant tour this week was quite awful!Actually,I went to this place like three years ago.I already had a not-so-good impression on it,but I feel like it deserves a second chance,that's why I went there again.It turned out that I was being too nice.
Without doubt, Joël Robuchon is an prominent chef,who has received the honor of MOF(Meilleur Ouvrier de France)at an early age.Nonetheless,going to this tea house is like buying a shopping bag from a luxury brand.It doesn't worth it at all!
My friend got a crème brûlée and a chocolate macaroon.Judging from the size,you'd feel like "Are you kidding me?"The crème brûlée was super tiny and tasted like panna cotta.As for me,I had a "Le Riso Al Salto,"which there're parma ham,arugula and taleggio cheese rice cake.Besides,I also got a "Le Tendanse Chocolat,"which is a chocolate mousse.
The weird thing is I think that they have a bad translation.They named those dishes in French.I'm confused that why they translated "la roquette" into spinach in chinese,while it supposed to be arugula.Also,according to the chinese menu,they said that there's sorbet in the dessert,but there're actually nothing besides chocolate mousse and some chocolate cookie chips.
To my disappointment,the quality and the price of their food only make me feel like they're just trying to reap colossal profits from customers.The price is definitely over-rated and the quality is just okay.
Still,I'm excited about my coming tours!My friend just gave me some suggestions,so there're more restaurants added to my to-go list!Woohoo!
