Its dinner time but we managed to get a table in less than 5 minutes ;D
We have to place our order at the counter before entering now and I decided on the Teriyaki Grilled Chicken Chop
~ Ice Lemon Tea ~
I also added the complete set meal with soup-of-the-day and ice lemon tea.
It has been quite a while since I last dined here and the menu has changed.
The price has gone up since last time but it is still affordable and lower compared to some other restaurants, and I love the food there ;D
~ Tomato Soup ~
The soup-of-the-day is the tomato soup. It is not too sour and is fresh and quite thick.
The garlic toast is crispy and goes well with the tomato soup
The grilled chicken came with the spaghetti and a small serving of lettuce.
The chicken is nicely cooked…tender and soft, and there is quite a strong grilled fragrant taste within the chicken meat.
The chicken skin is also nicely grilled that it is crispy and nice to have it together with the chicken without having to remove it.
~ Grilled Chicken Chop ~
The teriyaki flavor simply came from the teriyaki sauce over the chicken, which is not too salty or sweet.
It goes well with the chicken and gives a mixture of the strong grilled taste as well as a touch of teriyaki flavor.
~ Spaghetti ~
The aglio olio spaghetti
is fragrant and has quite a strong taste of the herbs & spices, and the chopped garlic.
It is quite oily though, but the oil used is the olive oil so it’s healthier ;D
The salad vegetables taste quite plain though. There isn’t any sauce to go with.
Nonetheless, the lettuces are fresh and sweet.
The flavor is just right and the whole dish tastes really nice and delicious. It is really worth it for the price and the portion is acceptable.
Total main dish we ordered is three with one meal upgrade costing $3.50, the total bill is around $35, which is relatively low for restaurant western cuisine ;D
So I always loved dining at Hot Tomato for it's affordable and fragrantly delicious meal
