Really Terrible Chinese From The Jade Inn On Bramley High Street.
Last Thursday 3rd December 2009 I decided to go get some Chinese from the Jade Inn on Bramley High Street. I haven’t been there for some time but like to go there as its (or was) one of the most traditional Chinese takeaways in this area.
Firstly it was empty when I went in there which is very strange as it used to be a very busy and you had to wait a while for the food. I ordered chicken chop suey, special egg foo young, sweet and sour pork.
While I waited for my food to be cooked, in came what I recognised as a regular face to the takeaway. He was moaning that his sweet and sour chicken was not cooked properly. This seemed odd to me as I have never had any problems there. The guy behind the desk said they had a new chef and that he had a different concept of what was cooked and not cooked. At this point it should have spelled trouble to me, but I just sat patiently and waited for the food.
Then up came my food I immediately checked my sweet and sour pork, felt fairly warm. So I then trundled home. Once home emptied the carrier to find at the bottom of the bag the special egg foo young (special omelette) but instead a block of omelette it was more like special scrabbled egg. It looked terrible. The chicken chop suey was cold and the pork in the sweet and sour pork tasted as though it had been cooked over a week ago was all tough and didn’t taste that fresh.
So basically probably wont go back there for some time, or at least until I hear reports that the chef has been replaced. It truly was horrible.
