Carbonara recipe needs fixing
Submitted Tuesday, January 10, 2012 - 11:52pm [Dine in]

Back in August 2011 their Carbonara was so good I told everyone. Tonight when I was there, it was awful. First bite, all pepper. Second bite, all salt. The waitress told us they have a new chef. I sent it back for the chef to try and he said it was intentional, that is how he makes it. Three other friends have confirmed my sentiment about the carbonara. I would recommend this chef to have another look at his recipe as it does not compare to what was offered before. His version of carbonara is White Spot caliber, basically for people who have no expectations for good food.

Good but not worth lining up for
Submitted Sunday, January 1, 2012 - 2:34pm [Dine in]

DDec 27, 2011 - Got to the restaurant around 9:45am, one server working, restaurant almost full with only two open tables. He sat our table then a couple minutes sat another table but the server helped the other table first (strike one). At 10am another server came on which helped a bit but she didn't really listen. We asked for more cream for our coffee, that request was completely ignored so we took some from another table (strike 2). Then we never ended up getting our toast that was supposed to come with our breakfast (strike 3). I had the daily special (frittata) which was tasty but nowhere as good “The Twisted Fork’s” frittata. My boyfriend’s crispy pork belly was pretty good but a little dry. The food has to be considered "Outstanding" (which it’s not) before I would be tortured with the awful service.

Wonton at Hon's no longer worth the cost
Submitted Monday, October 4, 2010 - 2:56pm [Dine in]

I had a craving for Hon's wonton yesterday. I always get the Shrimp and Meat Dumpling in Soup (no noodle). Sadly, I was very disappointed this time. Not only had the prices gone up from $4.85 to $5.45 (plus another $2.00 for noodles-never seen that before), they also charged $2.25 for Chinese Broccoli in the soup. So including HST the whole thing cost me $8.40 for a bowl of soup and a bit of Chinese Broccoli. Not only that, they used to use (before days of HST) a better quality meat and shrimp mixture inside the balls. Now they appear to be cheaping out and using mostly ground pork, very little shrimp and no Chinese mushrooms which used to be in the shrimp dumplings. There was nothing to distinguish between the regular wontons and shrimp dumplings. I was so disappointed and will not be going back for their wonton again. Overall, the Hon's product has gone down and cost gone up.

Good food but....

A few of us went for the 50% off lunch special. For the three of us it was only $22.47. Very reasonable! I had the Tuna melt and my friends had the BLT. It was very tasty but not all that healthy. My friend asked for no butter but they failed to tell her they fry the sandwich in butter. The restaurant was not super busy but the service was very slow. Our waitress was very pleasant to deal with but I am not sure what she was doing, as it was a challenge to place our order then get the bill at the end. I guess like any new place they need to learn how to give good customer service and maybe stop gossiping with their work mates.
