We, a Chinese-American family from a suburb of St. Paul, had a most unforgettable (in a bad way!) dinner at Ho Ho on Father’s Day (June 21, 2009). It was a family meal for 24 in three tables, reserved a week in advance. At the designated time, our entire party arrived and immediately we ordered from the menu at the waitresses’ urging, because allegedly, the chef was leaving at 8, in half an hour sharp! (The restaurant closed at 9.)
Within 10 minutes, the chef pushed all dishes out at once. They tasted as if they were reheated left-overs from a lunch-buffet table.
Following are specific comments on the ordered dishes (all nos. from Ho Ho’s menu):
For more than 12 years, we’ve had decent experience dining at Ho Ho. We’d considered them one of the most authentic Chinese restaurants in town, serving nothing fancy but a home-cook meal. (Their Paypa tofu (#201) used to be their signature dish, but it had so disappointed us 2-3 times that I gave up on it this time.) Henceforth, I vow that I would never return, ever period!
To add insult on injury, a service charge of 18% was added to the tab. The service at Ho Ho is certainly nothing to write home about!
When I mentioned that overall, the food was too salty, the hostess’s response or advice, rather, was: “Next time, you should ask for less salt!” There ain’t no “next-time” for me, pal! And I say it with no malice.
