We used to go hear every week. Back then, they served complimentary iced tea with every purchase (excluding set meals).When they renovated around year 2007, we were so excited to see what surprises they would have in store for us. When the doors reopened, our expectations were met. They had turned pearl house into a brand new modern looking Taiwanese restaurant. They even started serving bubble tea!However, as time went on, we realized that the meek families gradually dwindled to nothing, and wealthier foreigners with rich cars gradually appeared out of nowhere, taking up the parking lot. They would come in packs, each person driving their own luxury cars, filling up the parking, but only taking up a table at the actual restaurant.Furthermore, the kind waitresses back then, started to disappear. Instead, new ones with attitude, started showing up. We didn't even get greeted! While we were settling into our table, the waitress rudely forced us to move to a dirty table by the entrance with cold air rushing in. One even slammed our food on our table, spilling the contents all over the table. The food itself didn't make things better.I remember once ordering a bubble tea with no ice, since iced drinks don't mix well with grassy food. They only filled my drink halfway. The nerve! The famous beef noodles we were looking forward to itself wasn't that bad though. But the oil and grease in it were disgusting. Also, the sodium content is off the charts. My family and I would spent the whole night chugging water to quench this perpetual thirst.I miss the old pearl house.
