These days, i am all tired. Work is turning to pretty much a disaster compared to before. I am not sure if i see any light at the end of the tunnel. Wait.. i don't even think there is a tunnel. It is a brick wall i am walking into. Anyway, i do not want to complain anymore - it is pointless, i thought i put my pent up anger into writing a post.
You know, i used to rave about Mr Ho. And i was sorely disappointed when they moved out of midvalley. And i found them again in Plaza Hartamas, with a limited menu. Recently we found them again in Puchong with slightly larger menu than hartamas. But how i wish the midvalley one returned.
My dad used to be a big fan of this place, i am not sure how he thinks about it now. And note i rarely give a bad review, i don't think this place is bad, just that previous shops i were great, i just feel there should be some improvement to an instituition i thought really served great food.
For those who are not aware, Mr Ho specializes in pork, pork, pork and nothing but pork. With a few chicken, seafood thrown in. There once extensive menu in Midvalley has now some what reduced in their 2 branches. My mom's favorite seafood pasta is no longer there and gone are the siew yoke fan. Though the pork knuckles are still there if you are keen.
Since mom is not a pork fan due to health reasons, she decided for this roast chicken option. With a side of veggie and mash potato. I think the chicken quarter was rather small. When it came. It looks huge here thanks to Great photography but... actually it was small - leh. It smelt rather nice though but mom said the meat was not tender and rather tough. And the veggie - her complain it was too little ( tasty though ) but little. I tried a bit of the potato - pretty good! Milky mash potatoes. Mom wants me to say this dish was not so great.
Dad as usual loves roast pork, so he ordered roast pork with apple sauce. I didn't try the sauce but the pork was succulent. Although, heating it up a bit more might this more succulent. Sorry, the pic is awful here. I was trying to play with the flash
My order of Pesto with bacon. It looked nice but when i tried a bite of it, salt was lacking :(. And to add salt later sometimes give it a different taste that normally you achieve if you actually cook it with sauce. Sigh, very disappointed.
I must say, i am pretty saddened this wonderful restaurant did not give really good tasting food. However, i still feel this place could do with some improvement. I hope to check it out a few months later to see if there is some improvement on this food here.
Those interested, Mr Ho is located at Bandar Puteri Puchong. I can't remember the add, it was some where in the house.
