Review - Lunch at Flaming Kitchen (Markham, Ontario)

12:53:00 PM

It has been a while since I posted on my blog about actual restaurant reviews.  I have been eating well but busier with life. For this lunch adventure, I found this new restaurant in First Markham Place in the previous spot of the old V2 noodle restaurant. There was a heavy amount of Instagram sponsorship visits for this place. I grab my foodie mate and off we went for lunch.

The decor inside was like black and white. The dynamics of the staff and kitchen was similar to what I found at Papa Chang with the kitchen and cashier hidden in the kitchen area. Overall, the decor was very cold (not warm and inviting).

The service was pretty bad. The servers were no where to be found. Many times, I had to go up to the kitchen staff to request for menus, drinks and the bill. The restaurant wasn't even that busy or big ...

The theme of this restaurant was focus on sizzling plate items using Asian theme dishes. Pricing for these dishes ranged from $12 CAD and up. We got some popcorn chicken as a starter ($7). This dish tasted good for popcorn chicken. If they screwed up, it would have a been a bad sign to come...

For my main dish, I ordered the Black Curry Pork Cutlet Rice ($12 CAD). First impression from looks, the dish looked presentable. I don't like how the cutlet was just soaking in sauce. I preferred it just crispy. In regards to taste, I liked the dish but didn't feel this was amazing especially for this price point. If I wanted some good cutlet, Katsuya would still be my reference point.

Was the food good? It was just a little above average. Would I come back? Probably given the price point - I could find some awesome tasting foods in other restaurants in First Markham Place with cheaper pricing. I don't expect this restaurant to last too long.
