So a while back, I was with my mom shopping at downtown (because of course, I don’t need to pay for the clothes if my mommy is with me :)) and we decided to just drop by Joey’s for a light dinner since I’ve always enjoyed my visits to there. Well, not this time… But first, let’s talk about the food!
Japanese Gyoza ($11):
These were really good dumplings and an excellent appetizer! The wrapper was thin and did not break upon contact, and the gyoza’s were delicious. The sauce had a very strong sesame flavour to it that helped enhance the flavours and was a nice pairing. I would definitely get this again!
Ahi Tuna Club w/ Yam Fries ($17.75):
Not quite sure why I took a picture with the fries in the front instead of the sandwich.. Anyways, the ahi tuna club may look tiny in the picture, but it was actually a pretty big portion! The tuna was a bit overcooked though, so it was a bit tougher than previous times. I especially love the sweetness that comes from the sweet pepper relish, it helps make the sandwich taste a bit different and it’s simply delicious. The bun was light and fluffy and I really enjoyed this choice. The yam fries were also good, piping hot and sweet.
I always enjoy the food at Joey. However, the service is a whole different story. I’ve experienced the WORST service ever out of all the restaurants that I’ve been to over the years. Our waitress did not bother to check up on us at all, didn’t refill our water, spoke to us in a condescending tone, and did not even bother to smile at us. Now, if this was a busy night, then I would understand completely for the lack of service that is expected in such a restaurant. However, it was a quiet evening and I can assure you that the waitress was not frazzled at all. So I would definitely recommend the food, but do go to another location and avoid this one.
