Rating: 6.5/10

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.

Today EL asked for shopping so that he could buy his CNY clothes. By the time we reach 1Utama, it was already lunch time. While we were unable to decide on what to eat, I suggested Chili’s on a whim. Manatau, EL never had Chili’s before, thus we went on ahead.

Since it was EL’s first time, I suggested to him to try their lamb grill, which was really good. He was eyeing on the ribeye steak instead. But the price for it probably put him off. Besides, I wasn’t hungry at the moment as I had breakfast earlier. So I told him let’s order a main course and something else lighter. Hence the Cajun Club Sandwich came into view.

... I was surprised to find Esprit drinks on the menu. Unfortunately they don't have Passion Fruit. Though it cost less than RM8 excl tax and service charge.


... seeing that we were sharing the main course, I suggested that we order a Cajun Club Sandwich as well.



... the grilled lamb seemed more like a quarter done than half.

Our medium rare grilled lamb was rather raw. Though the outside was cooked, but big portion of the meat slab was raw right in the centre. Perhaps I should have opted for 3-quarter done. Somehow, I do recall my medium rare lamb shoulder was perfect. Anyway, despite being raw on the inside, the lamb was quite tasty. Thought it wasn’t as juicy as a ribeye. At the same time, it was quite sinewy. The menu stated that it would be served with black pepper gravy. Somehow, I don’t see any gravy on the plate. Anyway, we can’t finish the slab of meat, which was quite big. Perhaps I should just stick to lamb shoulder next time. The mash potato was excellent. DC gonna love it!

Our sandwich was acceptable. The cheese wasn’t the kind of cheddar slice cheese that you can get from supermarket. It was shaved from a big chunk of cheese slab. The fries were damn nice. Probably the best fries I’ve had in the year.

Today we went to a new Japanese BBQ restaurant in SS15. Though it has been there for quite some time but we’ve never had the thoughts of stopping by there due to the difficulty in finding a parking. Unlike most Japanese restaurant in the vicinity, this was BBQ style, somewhat like Korean BBQ meals. It was a place that serves mainly beef, beef to be grilled. Despite the shop’s name having the word “Kobe”, but I don’t think they serve genuine Kobe beef as the price doesn’t seem to indicate so.

Anyway, to make things simple, we ordered the lunch set each cost RM28. My salmon was rather special which needed to be grilled for 5 minutes. The salmon doesn’t have the usual fishy stink from salmon served in other Japanese restaurant. Probably because of the cheese and mushroom to negates the smell. Kuma’s hamburg beef was rather nice and the portion was big too. Perhaps something I’d try on next visit, or maybe I’ll just order the beef for grilling. SL’s chicken was mediocre. After the lunch, we were served with watermelon slices as dessert. I find that the watermelon has some weird taste in it, but I can’t point out what it was like.

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.

... a RM17.50 now cost only RM10.00.

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.

I wanted to come here the previous time, but Kuma spotted Super Kitchen and hence we changed plan last minute. This time around, I dragged Kuma, TSL and WWS into the pirate ship.

First off, the teh c with gula melaka was quite nice at first, but the tea’s flavour was too diluted and lacked of milk. The gula melaka was significant, too significant in comparison. If only the tea was thicker and the milk as well. TSL’s mee rebus was different from what we usually have. She exclaimed, there were green chilli. To me, the gravy was salted, as opposed of what supposed to be sweet. The noodle has heavy taste of alkaline, which was really bad and yucky. Kuma’s nasi kerabu wasn’t blue as I usually had. Though, there were still some hints of lemon grass in it. I guess only that matters when it comes to nasi kerabu.

My roti john cheese was not that good either, at least it was all bad, like the mee rebus. The bread was hard, unlike those I had in Steven’s Corner, where the bread was soft and nice to chew. I barely has any cheese taste, very lightly taste indeed. RM4.50 for that, it’s pretty costly. I would’ve opted for a burger instead with that kind of price. Then the half boiled omega eggs. First batch was too raw, we had them replace it. Then the second batch seemed ok but looked very watery. After putting in some pepper and soya sauce. It felt like drinking water with pepper and soya sauce. The eggs were pretty tasteless and it was watery like WATER! H2O! Any time the worst half boiled eggs I’ve ever had, except those rotten/not-so-fresh ones. Yuck!

Finally, we had another order on the bean curd tower. It seemed kinda cute to me as I’ve never encountered such a monolith before. When it was served, Kuma exclaimed that it was indeed a tower. I tasted traces of bread, deep fried. I guess the outer layer was covered in bread and soaked in eggs before it was deep fried to crisp. The inside was made of pieces of rectangular bean curd, not a whole chunk of a single piece of bean curd though. The sweet soya sauce given was good to numb myself from eating the bean curd tower, which was vomitous after all the bad stuff we’ve had earlier. If they would’ve given some jalapeno into the soya sauce mix, that would’ve been better. Anyway, we didn’t manage to finish the bean curd tower. Kuma said that stink tofu probably tasted better than that piece of junk.

I guess I won’t be going back there again. Despite the first bad experience, there were varieties of stuff which were really tempting to me though. That could be the price to pay for being curious.

PCL saw this place about a week ago when we passed by while heading back to office. She told me it was something-something Recipe but it wasn’t yet another Secret Recipe outlet. I managed to steal a glance and saw the greenish looking signboard. The word Recipe do looks very much like that from Secret Recipe. Probably designed by the same marketing company.

Anyway, we remembered to stop by today for a lunch break here today. There were tables on the outside and inside of the restaurant. Seeing that it was so bloody hot for the past few days, we decided to just sit on the inside, and hopefully the air conditioning was efficient. Upon sitting down, we were given menus by a waiter and soon the chef came and introduced himself to us. Unfortunately, I couldn’t remember his name. But you can get his name from the pizza delivery box, which was printed in very bold font on the top cover, including his personal contact number.

How were the foods fared? Well, for start, it was a good gesture that the garlic breads were given to us for free. Unfortunately, it was very heavy on butter, making the garlic fragrance became very insignificant. I was loosing my appetite when I was chomping down the 2nd piece. I knew I would definitely have 1 more piece to go. Anyway, I only realised the charred part of the garlic bread when I was having my final piece.

When my Earl Grey tea was served, it was served in Segafredo Zanetti’s tea cup. I was surprised that they were even related, because my previous experience with Segafredo wasn’t a pleasant one. When we both saw the tea cup, we said, “very salty aglio olio spaghetti” together and laughed. Yes, that was what Segafredo serves, very salty aglio olio spaghetti.

The soup was recommended by the chef. PCL nodded when I asked her if it’s was ok to have soup. I’ve got no idea how it looks like until it was served. Then there’s this spicy taste from the soup. At the same time, it tasted like diluted sauce used for making pasta. Fortunately, the aglio olio spaghetti was the best item of them all. Perfectly balanced taste and it was spicy too.

Lastly, our delicious pizza. When I told the waiter that I’d want the Gino’s special pizza. His first response was, “Large, sir?” I was rather disappointed by his response. Did he saw a 3rd or 4th person on our table? How could 2 persons, where 1 of them was just a little girl, finish all the food that we’ve ordered, let alone having another LARGE pizza? I guess they were desperate for business because it was quite empty the time we reached there.

And lastly, the place doesn’t accept credit card. So I had to pay my RM60+ bill with CASH. *sweat*
