Waipo revisited -review
I was here some years ago, back in 2014, and I’ve been thinking that I have to come back but never had a chance until now. Thefork.se is having a gastronomy festival and participating restaurants are offering 50% discount on food. Yeah!
The decor seems lighter than before and the vibe was great on a Saturday afternoon at 5pm. Because of the 50% discount, we decided to go all out, even after consulting with the waitress who advised us that 2-3 dishes are enough for 1 person. Well, we ordered 8!
The dishes came out really fast, maybe after 5 minutes of ordering. The gambas fried in sweet potato noodles were cold and a bit smaller than I remembered. There was way too much wasabi cream (tasted like mayo to me), in the shrimps. Hubby enjoyed this dish.
The next dish was the scallops. I didn’t enjoy these. The aubergine was still quite al dente and the topping was very salty. Not for me.
The lamb chops was my favorite dish of the day. So much so that I placed another order. The chops were very big and juicy and the chili oil that came with was delish!!!
The pork balls in a dough were ok. Hubby enjoyed this dish!
The stir-fried chicken with Sichuan peppers and peanuts was very good although we couldn’t find any peanuts. The chicken was especially tender and juicy.
The crispy duck breast with fried peanuts and chili sauce was excellent! The meat was still very juicy and the sauce yummy. My second favorite!
The fried rice was very good. It went well with all the dishes as we needed something to soak up all the different sauces!
We asked for some chili sauce and Holy Cow, we got a huge portion of wonderful sauce. This is what was left and we’re two chiliheads! I’d come back to the resto just to have some of this sauce!
All in all, we were very satisfied with the food and will definitely come back for our favorites the next time there’s a discount! Otherwise, the prices were a bit steep. Having said that, we were very happy with our meal!
Service was very fast but professional. They didn’t hurry us at all.
Value for money: 3/5
