Siu Yeh Alert: Bad Review
So after having tried Australia Dairy Company, naturally, I thought maybe Yee Shun Milk Company would be similar. I was sadly mistaken.
To begin, the 10+ servers in the empty restaurant were late (or lazy) to respond to my repeated requests for the menu. They all gathered at the back of the restaurant eating chocolates … and when I was finally able to make my order, the lady didn’t seem like she knew what was going on. I had asked for plain macaroni in soup, sausages, SCRAMBLED eggs, and toasts. Since that wasn’t a set in the menu, she had to *reluctantly* ask her manager how to input the order into the computer system.
I thought, the folks at Australia Dairy Company are rude, but at least they’re efficient! I much prefer that than what I was experiencing here.
Anyway, the food came relatively quickly, but I was served fried eggs and no toasts. The lady came to me with 2 pieces of toasts in a plastic bag and apologized because the kitchen thought the toasts were “to go”. Then she threw me 1 of the 2 pieces and walked off.
I quickly finished off the macaroni in soup (with a hint of sesame oil) and the sausages … nothing to write home about. Then I went on to work on the FRIED eggs … at this point, I didn’t even want to bother with them … I just wanted to leave. Anyway, the fried eggs were pretty bad … it tasted weird (not just melamine-weird, but something was wrong with their cooking oil). What’s worse was the egg seemed like it was cut from a large sheet of fried egg … that really turned me off.
I want to give them the benefit of the doubt. Maybe I ordered all the wrong food; afterall, they had the Portuguese Pork Buns on their posters (assuming that’s their signature dish) … and of course their steamed milk. But if they can’t get a simple order done correctly … I’m not quite sure about all their other stuff.
Will I visit the place again? Unlikely.
Long story short, Yee Shun Milk Company is not very good.
