My bread was toasted till crisp. Hence the darkened colour of the surface. It has seafood and crab sticks laden with mayonnaise.

This post was made specially for EL because he said I didn’t “eat enough” of Subway’s because I said I’d frequent it more often. The fact was, I ate enough but I didn’t post them up as I didn’t take any photos.

This place was on our KIV list for a long time, finally today I could give it a try together with DL. Unfortunately, MH wasn’t able to join us. We ordered quite a number of dishes in order to prevent the sky from raining further. Firstly, we have the Japanese escargot in butter garlic sauce. DL almost puke, but fortunately there were some garlic in it to engulf the butter taste in it. Anyway, he soaked himself in jalapeno later on. San Francisco SteakHouse‘s butter garlic escargot has better sauce than this at any given time!

Then the 4 heavenly vegetables were served. It was rather sticky and gooey. The cod fish was very disappointing. Probably the worst cod fish I’ve ever had. It was like a piece of elastic rubber. Yes, the cod fish was practically ruined. We ended up having balance of the fish on the plate. DL was so enjoying the clay pot curry chicken, not because it was nice, but it was hot. He said it’s nice to have hot stuff like this during cold weather. We should have gone to Seafood Ler for clay pot curry fish instead.

Finally, the crabs were not fresh, according to DL. I managed to have a pincer which was rather sweet and an acceptable leg part. Though my second leg part was not fresh, just like how he claimed.

I guess this is the place that I’d never go back to, even if I’m hungry.

The soft shell crab temaki got my jaw sored. Probably due to the tortilla being used instead of the usual crispy seaweed. The temakis were served in 3 different types of sauces. I could only make out 2 of them, which were curry sauce and mayonnaise. I’ve got no idea what the third sourish and little spicy sauce was. The grilled squids on a stick was nice. Despite it it was cold, the taste was good, probably glazed with salt water. Though I expected it to have better fragrance like most grilled squids. Finally, my not spicy was only mediocre. Not that I have a good impression on this place on my previous visit.

The service for the day was terrible. We had to wait for more than 30 minutes for our main course to be served. Not that the preparations for pasta would take that long. And despite all the time taken, our ingredients weren’t exactly better than usual. The squid rings on my pasta was rather hard, and the taste of the whole thing wasn’t that good either.

Went for Ice Monster for some desserts before we left the place. I was telling him that the mango ice-cream here was superb, tasted like like a real mango. So AC was tempted to try it out.

The mango ice-cream was indeed very mango-ish. There were even fibres in the ice-cream itself. Though I wonder how’s the mango sorbet would be like. AC had the passion fruits. Which was a tad sourish and very sweet. Tasted more like syrup ice-cream than authentic passion fruits ice-cream. I guess the one from Haagen Dazs was just so much better.

I saw the O’Briens promotion on my Facebook, stating that any sandwich will only cost RM10. But the promotion only available in Sunway Pyramid outlet. I would’ve gone there myself, if AC didn’t buzz me on MSN. Hence we share the private moment together, while EL was sleeping like pig until 4pm, then only reply to my SMS. We had the most expensive sandwich on the menu, of course. Afraid that we might miss such opportunity again.

I had the O’Brien’s Chicken Tripledecker, while AC ordered the O’Brien’s Crambo Club. Somehow, we were both served with the same Chicken Tripledecker sandwich. I guess the lady took the wrong order. The sandwich was thick because it has 3 slices of bread on it. 1 piece of very crispy chicken crisp, which was quite dry, but salty. Very nice indeed. Then there were chicken cutlets with melted cheese holding them to the bread. On the bottom layer, things were falling apart because the vegetable and coleslaw can’t hold them together. Hence stuff got really messy in the end.

My banana refresher was quite a refreshment. Usually, I was a bit wary of banana drink as I wouldn’t know how it would turns out. Fortunately, it wasn’t too thick, not like some banana shake or smoothies. The carrot and apple’s flavours were almost non-existence though. Mainly dominated by banana and orange.

Our final destination for the day was at this place for lunch. Though we’ve already had our lunch earlier at Yi Poh. After our little shopping in Parkson Grand, I started to feel a little empty in my stomach. Our initial plan was to have dinner at this place. Unfortunately, we can’t last until dinner time as there was basically nothing to do in Seremban. Nothing! Fortunately, the place was opened early.

The vegetable was the most mildly tasting dish. The marmite spare ribs were a tad salty. AT was complaining that it was very salty. The portion was big though. Then the crab, it was very very very salty, similar to last time. I thought they would’ve tone down a bit. The crab meat was nice though, sweet, unlike what I had in Cia Xiang.

The taste stays pretty much the same as the last time I had it. Talks about consistency. Mildly soggy fried pork lards, the hometown flavouried thick dark sauce in the noodle and the hometown tasting complimentary soup.
