Weekend Food Trip at: Modern Shanghai, SM MOA

The first I dined at Modern Shanghai Restaurant, I was still pregnant with Kyle!  Imagine that!  That's 5 full years ago!  Then with several Family Occasion, we've visited there around once or twice after.

It has been more than a year since our last return since we seldom have dinner at SM Mall of Asia due to "people traffic".  But thankfully, because of our Staycation at Sofitel Philippine Plaza, we've decided to dine again and see if we missed out anything.

We were so hungry when we arrived and the place wasn't as packed as before.  We immediately ordered the usuals --- Yang Chow Fried Rice, Xiao Long Bao, Garlic Kang Kong, Sweet and Sour Pork and Salt and Pepper Squid.

Everything was great!  They actually maintain the good quality for the past years and I actually liked the dishes more today then ever! 

We also added Pork Dumplings in Hot Chili Sauce and it didn't fail!  It's once of the best I tried so far!

Then of course, a visit at Modern Shanghai will never be complete without their Pan-Fried Shanghai Pork Bun.  These buns are big but the pork itself is not as big!  But that didn't remove the smile from our faces.  

What did was....are the dirty utensils, the inability of the servers to serve us utensils when food are all on the table!  Again, it wasn't that packed when we visited, the slow service isn't an issue, the bigger issue are the dirty glasses and plates :( We had to return them and ask them to wash again.

This isn't a rant post because like I said, our family left the restaurant fulfilled as all the dishes we ordered are really delicious!  I just wish that the restaurant would do their best to make sure their utensils are clean and staffs are more alert with the needs of the customers.  Again, the slow service is forgivable if the restaurant is packed, but it wasn't that day.

This is also a wake up call for them that with Social Media, I can easily take a photo of the dirty glass (with a drop of sauce on our service water) and plates that are extremely oily and unclean, I can easily take a photo of it and share online. Anybody can do that, but I'm not that type!  We did tell our concerns to the restaurant and I wish they are better when we return.

Do you have any disappointing dining experience in a restaurant you love?

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!
