Since our usual to-go stop in Aberdeen closed, we went over to Rainbow cafe Richmond inside Parker Place food court. At any given hour you will find the old Chinese grandma chatting with other grandpas instead of serving customers or making a fresh batch…
We were craving some Chinese Egg Waffles 雞蛋仔 after our terrible lunch at Shi-Art Chinese Cuisine 食藝海鮮酒家 we wanted something sweet to wash away the after taste.
Guess this wasn’t our day for being hungry lil pigs on crack (food). Rainbow gave us a batch of stale, cold, egg waffles. After claiming they were freshly made… We requested a new batch be made, but she assured us it was fresh… Normally, when they are fresh, they are warm, aromatic and soft centered. You should be able to fold / curl the patty into the paper bag easily. Instead grandma had to chop it in half!
They were cold, hard and broken…
I brought them back challenging her and requesting fresh batch. She didn’t care that her customers were not satisfied. I asked for my money back… Even tho it is only $3.50, I certainly don’t like being sold sub-par garbage. She put the waffle on top of the bin, hope she doesn’t resell this!
If you purchased a batch with one piece clipped off, I sincerely apologized (this was the batch we brought back). But I promised our hands were clean! Bon appetite!
I would not come back again… But I guess we must thank them because we bought some really delicious FRESHLY made roasted pork!! (click)
