Taki's Complaint - I've Had Better Meals From Those "Dollar A Scoop" Asian Food Joints!!!
YUKON, FLORIDA -- Asian cuisines are not all alike. You have Tai, Korean, Chinese and Japanese to name a few and my fav' is Japanese.
There are some restaurants out here called KOKORO and they make the best Japanese Style Beef Bowls. Seasoned strips of beef over a bed of steamed rice with whatever spices you like such as pickled ginger, hot pepper sauce and of course the soy sauce. I know that it sounds boring but it is so tasty with all of the spices coming together not to mention that it is a lot healthier that a #11 from Micky D's.
Now as far as Taki's goes, they have a much broader menu so that may explain part of my disappointment over the meal. Too many varieties of beef entree's?
I order the Beef Bowl to go and promptly get back to work and YES, I briefly checked my food before leaving! I get on the bus and all of a sudden I start smelling what reminded me of stale cabbage or something like that! No way was I going to open it back up on the bus and get jeers or possibly worse from some down on their luck fellow bus rider (I get enough of that at my pad) so I waited to get to work and open it up and to my surprise the "cook" wanted to go "Emeril" and impress me with his presentation of FRESH GARDEN GREENS with my meal!
What happened was during the time the Styrofoam container was wrapped in the plastic bag the spinach, the browning cauliflower and other leafy things were getting steamed! It was smelly as a co-worker stated.
I quickly picked that mess out and got down to eating. The rice was okay but the beef was cut into little bite sized squares with a hint of some too sweet Teriyoki Sauce(sp?)!!!!!
Yuck and to top it off the "extra ginger" was hardly extra. No mas!!!!!
