... fried chicken, highly recommended by DL.

... stir fried Maggi noodles.

Rating: 5/10

Running out of stuff to eat, DL brought us to his regular hangout place. He said it’s a low cost dinner and the fried chicken was nice. To me, the fried chicken was fresh, freshly fried. Which also means that it was soaked in cooking oil and animal fats. Unfortunately, it wasn’t the kind of chicken that I like. I would still vouch for the ayam goreng sempalit at DoReMi.

... bottomless iced lemon tea.

... a rather costly Parmesan-Crusted Chicken Quesadillas as appetizer.

PG was enjoying the view of The Curve Boulevard yesterday when we were at Italiannies. He wanted to experience the same thing again today, hence we went next door of Italiannies, the brother company, TGI Friday’s. PG ordered the ribs while I picked the appetizer.

The appetizer was quite good, though the price was not cheap. While the ribs was interesting, but it was a bit charred/dried. Anyway, I’ve never had beef ribs for eons, I guess once a while makes no harm to my strict diet. The dessert was very sweet though. I thought I could substitute Chili’s molten chocolate cake with this brownies, but I guess I was wrong. Both of use could barely finish it.

... complimentary bread with olive oil and vinegar.

... bottomless iced lemon tea.

... it was so long ago since I last had stuffed mushrooms.

... recommended this prawn aglio olio to PG for his 1st time.

I found out from PG that he has never tried Italiannies’ Aglio Olio pasta before, hence I suggested that we go there for early dinner. It’s been a while since I last had pasta there as well. This time, I ordered my favourite stuffed mushrooms as well. I wasn’t sure if it was because I never had stuffed mushrooms for too long, I find that the taste was different, just wasn’t as good as the 1st few times I had it.

As for the pasta, PG was very satisfied with it. He said he never expected it to be that good. I was very satisfied with the pasta as well, as it was consistent all of the time I patronise Italiannies.

... my favourite grilled lamb shoulder from Chili's.

Rating: 6.5/10

We ended our day with the last meal at Chili’s Bar and Grill. I told PG that the last time I had lamb shoulder in Chili’s was great. Probably the best I could find in town as Friday’s has forsaken their classic grilled lamb. Hence we ordered a grilled lamb shoulder for the each of us. To my amazement, the portion was quite big for mere lamb shoulder as the last time I had them, the portion was about 2/3 of what I was getting today. I was guessing it could be due to the new opening of this particular outlet in Empire Shopping Gallery. Anyway, the grilled lamb was fantastic until the last bit, but a tad too salty though. In the end, I still couldn’t manage to finish everything on the plate. I was left with some mashed potato, while PG was managed to lick his clean.

After our lunch at Win Soon Cafe, we went to KL for a walk. We wanted to stop by for a drink and PG remembered about this food court in Lot10, which specializes in gathering all the best food from all over KV. When we were there, the place was quite packed and seats were quite scarce. While we were seated by the BKT counter, I went ahead and ordered us 2 bowls of shaved ice from Snow Ice counter.

Out of both the flavours, durian and red beans. I must say I prefer durian more than red bean. I guess the heavy taste on durian is just right to be made into shaved ice. The ice were shaved so finely that they immediately melts in the mouth as you put them in, while remained solid on the outside at room temperate, only slowly melting away.

It was a good experience being there as I’ve never seen such food in KV before. At least now I know where to find them whenever I have cravings for them. Price wise, it was a bit steep for such dessert, but it saves you the convenient, and I bet the rent there isn’t cheap either for the furnishing that Lot10 has put in for the tenants.

... store front of the cafe.

... Kuma's mango juice.

... I ordered a cappuccino.

... sugar water cup which looks like a golf ball.

... ALGJ ordered a chicken chop.

... a basket of fried chicken wings.

... I ordered a Seafood Aglio Olio Spaghetti.

... Kuma's Carbonara Spaghetti.

I was told that the spaghetti here was nice, especially aglio olio. This time I finally remember to come here to give it a try. Brought a long Kuma, ALGJ and TSL. The pasta variety was quite different from other place. Firstly, choose your type of flavour, such as bolognaise, carbonara, aglio olio and etc. Then choose the fillings, such as vegetarian, beef, seafood, salmon and etc.

I wasn’t quite interested on the salmon, cause it’s the most expensive. Kuma ordered the beef carbonara hence I picked the seafood aglio olio. It tasted like most aglio olio, with dried chilis in it. Though the seafood was quite fresh. It cost around RM23 per plate, which was quite reasonable. Though I still prefer the aglio olio taste of Italiannies’. Kuma had a little complain though, as she preferred the carbonara spaghetti from Asia Cafe instead.

ALGJ ordered chicken chop, though that was like the n-th plate of chicken chop she had for the week. The taste was not bad, a lot better than most chicken chops in town. Our basket of chicken wings was mediocre though. And my cappuccino came with a cup of sugar which looks like a golf ball.

... my fellow favourite condiments from 100C Steamboat. Sambal belacan, 100C special sauce, fried garlic and shallot.

... ALGJ took Hainanese chicken's condiment and honey mustard & mayonnaise.

... I ordered the vegetarian set.

... 1 of the reasons I come here for dinner, the original flavoured bubble tea.

... boiling my stuff, vegetarian set indeed looks very unappetizing.

ALGJ has been craving for steamboat for a while now. She keeps bugging me for this. Finally, we came here for dinner today. This 100C Steamboat outlet was initially opened in NZX. My favourite, as usual, the millions of choice on the condiments. This time around, ALGJ spotted something better, the honey mustard & mayonnaise.

I went for the vegetable set, hoping to keep my strict diet in check. Unfortunately, the taste was rather bland. I was crying for more meat as I progress. ALGJ threw me 1/2 of her set, which made me very full.

I had a very very nice bubble tea last time when this outlet was in NZX. I keep thinking of it. Hence I must order this today. Unfortunately, it was quite runny and bland. I guess things change, to worst.
