Flinders Station @ Kuching

So, I went to Flinders Station for lunch today. This would be the second time, the first time was for dinner. So let's talk about the dinner first. It was packed the day I went for dinner as it was only the second day it had opened that time. As a proud 'Kia-Su' people, when a new restaurant opened and it has an attractive name, the normal reaction for me and the rest of bored Kuchingnite was to go and check it out.




Flinders Station was the name



...and they served Real Aussie Food. *cough* What's the real aussie food anyway? Hmm.....




Inside (Second floor)



The interior of the restaurant are nice. Nice atmosphere, nice wall, nice lighting, nice seats. All and all, the restaurant was nicely decorated. Love the wall colour very much! :)



Now to the food




Mushroom Soup. Nothing special. Canned Soup.




Just a normal garlic bread. lol




Buffalo with No Wings.



Just a normal fried chicken. I would prefer buffalo with 'wings' aka Buffalo Wings as that would have atleast taste a little different from the normal fried chicken. If I'm not mistaken this is the specialty of the house?, but anyway I was expecting something special because of the name but sadly, it was just a normal fried chicken wings, so......yeah.



Forgot the name. lol



Taste like Buffalo with No Wings, just different part of the chicken. But got black pepper sauce so tastier.



On that night, the service was slow and the food was not that great either. But it's understandable as it was a newly opened restaurant and they are probably understaffed that time which would explain the slow service.



So I decided to go again for the second time and was hoping that the food would be better and the service would be better. I went there for lunch because I wanna try the pies which they only serve for lunch.




When you see a sign like that, automatically you would think that this restaurant is famous for its pie.



So, pie I ordered....




Chicken Pie.



....and boy was I disappointed. The pie was nice looking and all but when I cut it in half and taste a spoonful of the pie (the chicken part), it was ICE COLD. Have you ever eaten a spoonful of chicken meat, with juice and all and it's cold. Frikkin disgusting.




"Come here YOU.....It's COLD!!!!!" Felt like doing this that time but I might get beat up, so NO. I gotta stop watching Kitchen Nightmare. :S




The almost thawed pie.



The question that went through my mind at that time was 'WTF was the chef doing??', if a chef can't even heat a chicken pie using a microwave oven properly, imagine what he will do to the food that actually needs cooking. I was like never mind, honest mistake. I called the server, told them the pie was ice cold and they took it away. That time, I had cut the pie to 4 pieces, (sharing with my sis) and there was 2 pieces left on the original plate and 1 pieces each on our plate.



Pie that has been heat up.



I thought that they would atleast had the courtesy to heat up a NEW chicken pie and give it to us. But, NO, they heat up the 2 pieces on the original plate and gave it back to us. Great, I'm starving and I've got 2 piece of HEAT UP-PED chicken pie for me and my sis to share. And you expect me to eat 1 piece cold and 1 piece hot chicken pie? What is this, ying and yang flavour is it? Best of both world?....?!?!!!....




*chill Lindy....inhale.....exhale....*




I just hope they would improve the food as well as the services.





Spot the birds dating. it's them against the world. or maybe against the weather. :)




Lasagna.


Too oily but otherwise it taste good. Just don't know why they have to serve it like airplane food like that. If the food was made earlier and heat up upon ordering, don't make it too obvious atleast.



I'm just being honest, sorry if I've offended the Flinders Station fans. Peace? :D



OK.BYE.

  20. Visited jj chicken bite and bought some pies and quiches. They look nice but the fillings are too salty and the quiches smell like rotten egg. If you guys want to have quiches, go to Aloha at Jalan Song. They are excellent.

  21. Hmm... Went to jj chicken bite. Bought some pies and quiches. They look nice. But the chicken meat fillings are too salty. The quiches are not fresh and smell of rotten egg. Nothing different from Flinders Station. If you guys want to taste good pies and quiches, go to Aloha at Jalan Song. Excellent!

  22. I don think that those school sell ' GREAT' pie coz the school canteen always sell 'SUCKS' food and surely students will be bored after seeing or eating those same pie everyday..

  23. I always buy the frozen Beef Pie at Choice supermarket. I never expend Kuching have someone can produce Beef Pie like the frozen imported Beef Pie. But, when i try the JJ Chicken Bite's Beef Pie, I can't believe its a local made product. I like its and I think i no need to buy the frozen imported pie anymore.
