H K S BBQ & Noodles House - Markham, ON
The great thing about the GTA is that many malls eschew the standard fast food chain offerings. Quite the contrary, malls have independent small business owners that offer better and different food at prices often better than the chains.
With that said, HKS was queued eight deep when we arrived. We chose the Three meat entree - Chicken, BBQ Pork, Roast Pork. A restaurant wants its food to set itself apart from the competition. No doubt HKS's food was different. All three staples didn't taste like the traditional offerings but had an artificial sweetness with a hint of bitterness followed by a bland hollowness. All three staples had a texture and quality that was acceptable for the price but was not what was expected at the cutthroat competition level. Despite the low cost and big volume and maybe the regulars know something we don't, it didn't make the grade for us.
