Hong Kong Kim Gary Restaurant (香港金加利茶餐) @ Tampines 1
Rachel and I have tried the Kim Gary at VivoCity and found it pretty average. When we passed by the Tampines 1 outlet, we couldn’t resist the colourful menu and decided to give it a try again. Given that they have such a wide variety of food, we may chance on something better this time round.
They were having a tea-time promo when we stepped in. Strangely, for some of the items we wanted to order, it actually cost more to order them a-la-carte than to go with their tea-time set meal that comes with a drink.
That’s how we ended with with four food items and four drinks.
As per the experience we had with their VivoCity branch, the price is great, but the food is pretty average.
Couldn’t complain much about the pineapple hotdog and the two soup noodle dishes as they are really simple to cook and you can’t really go horribly wrong with them.
The beef burger was really bad though. The beef was as tough as leather and we had problem chewing through it.
We enjoyed the drinks, but four cups of tea between two person is really too much. We both suffered from caffeine overdose after the meal and were feeling giddy for a while.
The conclusion we came to is that Kim Gary is a restaurant that’s good for social gatherings where the extensive menu should be able to cater to everyone’s taste bud, without hurting the pocket too much. It’s not the place to go to for a quality meal.
Here’s the address of their Tampines 1 outlet:
10 Tampines Central 1
