Jang on Jasper: Fusion Food Misses the Mark

Despite three unsatisfactory experiences (save for a couple of dishes being “okay”), I feel Jang has the potential to be so much better. The chef loves being creative, and that’s good, but just like bigger is not always better, more steps/ingredients/manipulation in food does not always make a better tasting dish.

You can read about my experience on the CBC website, or listen to the audio file here.
