My friend and I thought we would have a relaxing lunch on a rainy weekday at the prestigious Inn at Perry Cabin. After it was over, I wondered how people paying the high room rate, would tolerate such poor cuisine.
After swatting flies for 10 minutes, we decided to order. I chose both items on the Appetizer list which had stars - one was the chef's signature and the other had won awards.
Let me add my own asterisks. The signature crab spring roll ($13) tasted solely of a greasy wonton wrap. Which means only one thing - when was the cooking oil last changed? I could not taste the crab at all. Next the smoked chicken tarte. The chicken was cubed, like it was cut from a deli roll at the Acme Supermarket. Over smokey and very salty - the $14 pricetag was a joke.
My friend's crab and corn soup was too thick and tasted mostly of cumin - where was the corn? And the chunks of crap ontop were tasteless. Her salmon dish was a bit better, but the bacon strips were inedible - thick, tough and so smokey they tasted like someone "sprayed" them with liquid smoke. The potato salad was very bland.
Fresh flowers on the tables were in vases that needed washing and fresh water. Staff was somewhat attentive, but lacked the training that you would see in an establishment of such a reputation. Tablecloths could use an ironing.
One Plus - the breadbasket had a nice selection and good flavor.
