The Sun hired me as a politics writer but my blog is called “Politics & Stuff” so I’m technically allowed to write about the “Stuff” part! Here’s a food review of Hai Hong!!
First, a little about the restaurant: Hai Hong is a family-owned Asian restaurant on 208 Dryden Road in Collegetown that’s been in business for 21 years. I will be reviewing 6 dim-sum foods based on 3 criteria: taste, presentation, and the “wow-factor”.
Taste: Tasted like water
Presentation: In a nice glass so it couldn’t have been tap water
2) Shrimp-Stuffed Eggplant
Taste: Not a fan of eggplant but a fan of shrimp. Conflicted but overall 3.5
“Wow-factor”: Didn’t SAY wow but I thought it maybe
3) Chicken Feet??
Taste: I like it! Hard to eat though
Presentation: A little scary but it tasted good so who cares
4) Veal I think
Taste: Tasted like BBQ with the stubbornness of gum (hard to chew)
“Wow-factor”: Wow because it I’d never heard of veal before and I was like what is that
5) Forgot what this was
Taste: Don’t remember, but from this picture, it was lit
Presentation: It looked like transparent clouds with a green center!!
“Wow-factor”: 4 because I look wowed
6) Pork bunzzz
Taste: lmao it was good
Presentation: Authentic because it came in a wooden bowl
Overall Hai Hong is a classic restaurant along Dryden Road with a convenient location and amazing staff. I recommend!!!
