... Pokka Cafe, reminds me of the coffee flavoured can drinks. I wonder if they are related.

The drink was devastating, fortunately the smoked duck wraps were quite good. Though they were really cold. The mashed potato escargot was not as good as butter garlic escargot from San Francisco Steakhouse. I missed it very much.

The bill came up to around HKD188+ for only starters and drinks.

Today I celebrate PCL’s belated birthday. Brought her to Sunway Pyramid for some shrimpy actions. We came here once long long ago, which I didn’t not blog about. And back then, it was newly opened and do not accepts credit cards. Which surprised both of us. Past experience told us that, this place has some really nice tasting shrimps, not because they were very fresh, but the preparation method was excellent.

It was difficult to choose which was better from the 2 choices that we made. The Bourbon Street Baramundi has the shrimps all stripped naked of its shells, soaked in special mixed sauce. Garnish with a big slap of mashed potato acupuntured with stripped tortillas. There were some fish fillet laid over the mashed potato, which was similar in colour. Fish fillet was mildly grilled to retains its moist. Though the fish fillets weren’t very fresh because PCL was irking over the foul smell emitting from this type of fish.

As for the Shrimp New Orleans, the shrimps were half shelled and sauteed over garlic butter sauce. The shrimps have good fragrance to it because of the sauteed garlic butter, which soaked deep into the shrimp’s meat. This style reminds me of the Cajun Shrimp I once had on my first visit here. It even has a similar piece of garlic bread on it. The only difference was, this has a bowl of rice over it. The sauce from the effect of sauteed was good to be eaten together with the rice.

The shrimps used weren’t overly fresh, though they could’ve been better. But the preparation methods was great, which made everything tastes quite nice. Based on my first experience, do stay away from fried shrimps in batter. They aren’t nice.

Without taking the price into consideration, it could easily score a well 8/10 on it because they were quite good, especially the sauteed items. But the price was indeed a bit steep just for a lunch. And the nature of this diet was really bad. I bet my strict diet monitor was wailing.

... TSL deprived me of MySoy soya milk and the place deprived me of iced milo. (AC, don't laugh :P)

I had to make very sure that the set they offering was of single sausage and not twin sausages, like how I was tricked into ordering the set last time. The sausage tasted quite good but TSL said it was very salty. The cheese on the inside was mostly melted as I slice them up. I guess they overheat the sausage. The mashed potato was so huge that I could only eat half of it. There were abundance of corn kernels while the bread has shrank in size, though it was turned into garlic bread, which I think was a better idea. The drink was not nice though.
