Ever since Catch 122 first opened, I’ve heard so much good things about it; however, I was quite bummed out that it didn’t live up to its hype nor my expectation.
Here with a couple friends, I ordered a cappucino to start my meal, and a Avocado veggie sandwich with salad for my lunch.
The cappucino was disappointing. It’s quite bland, and the coffee was sour. I wasn’t a fan of it.
The food got to our table soon after, and I started the lunch with the salad. I noticed the greens weren’t so fresh right away. After a couple bites, I was a little disgusted by a few brown and rotting leaves in the bowl. This really boggles me on where their quality control was. The rest of the salad was left untouched.
After the bad start, I tried to keep an open mind about my sandwich. It turned out nice. The avocado’s creaminess was a nice contrast to the crispy pressed bread. There was a lot of sweetness from the caramelized onions as well.
My friend insisted on getting desserts so we ordered a Apple tartin and a Belgian triple chocolate terrine. The apple tartin was a really nice dessert with warm apple tarin and vanilla ice cream. The chocolate terrine was very dense, very intense chocolate flavor.
Needless to say, I was extremely disappointed with this restaurant, because I really wanted to know what everyone is raving about.
