Dinner @ Asian Legend

My family came to Asian Legend to celebrate my mom's birthday. I generally love their dim sum here, but this time, we opted for more "dinner-like" dish. We started with Shanghai specialty casserole stew, which we all enjoyed. The broth was super flavourful and I had tons of veggies with it. The stew definitely made me feel as if my meal was going to be healthy!
The next dish - house special crispy chicken - was tasty, albeit a little generic. I deliberately did not order my favourite General Tao chicken because I know I wouldn't be able to stop eating that. After all, roasted chicken with crispy skin almost always taste good. This version was executed well, but it didn't have any wow factor. It was, nevertheless, a whole lot more enjoyable than the following dish...
Wuxi style spare ribs was awful! I won't lie, I ordered this because I was eyeing that bed of veggies. The veggies were great, but the spare ribs were terrible!  I expected a rich sauce to complement the meat, but this was anything but. The sauce was so bland and artificial-looking. It tasted like bad Chinese food that you get at food court stall catered to people who aren't familiar with Asian flavours. I actually really regretted finishing the one piece that I tried. We left more than half of it uneaten. I was shocked that Asian Legend could serve something so appallingly bad because I've never had anything here that was this terrible before.
Luckily, the final dish redeemed my dining experience- fish fillet in hot chili sauce. The fish was tender, and the chili sauce was yummy and comforting. My stomach tingled pleasantly from the heat, and which was wonderful for the cold weather. The spices and the flavours were incredible, and the heat was perfect for those with a spicy tongue (but it's not intolerably spicy by any means).
We ended the meal with complimentary red bean soup, which was a little watered down. All in all, I thought that the meal was slightly disappointing. Even though the casserole stew and fish fillet in chili sauce were delicious, the Wuxi-style spare ribs was a major let-down. I think that I enjoy their dim sum here more than anything else, and a meal here just feels incomplete without ordering some.
