EL invited me over for the final dinner in 2009. I suggested Bumbu Bali at first then he said he would rather have Uno Pizza instead. Hence we met in Uno Pizza for dinner immediately. The menu was streamlined because the ala carte menu was not available for festive seasons.

The sparkling juice I had cost RM9. I saw there was passion fruit juice, which is not sparkling. Unfortunately, they don’t have the sparkling one like Esprit. The aglio olio spaghetti was acceptable with mild spiciness. But it was a tad too oily to my liking. The grilled prawns was nice though, though the prawn could’ve been fresher. There were 3 huge prawns just right for the 3 of us. It cost RM30 and I guess each prawn cost close to RM10 each? lol

The organic chicken was overrated. Though it was nice, least of fat but it cost RM78, which is rather too much. It comes with a sauce. The sauce was so nice that it made the chicken nice too. If not for the sauce, I guess the chicken would just be rather normal. The stuffing were rather special though as it tasted like rice.

Finally we had a pizza as EL was saying the more he ate, the hungrier he got. We ordered the Tropicana pizza which has pineapples cutlets which were rather sweet, ham and smoked chicken. The pizza was ok, but not that nice though.

Dave’s Deli wouldn’t be my choice of lunch, usually. But today was exceptional since they all frowned upon the offering from Esquire Kitchen for the day. I had a vegetarian sandwich, seeing that it should conforms to my strict diet, except for the bread. The sandwich was exceptionally good being meatless. The bread was quite nice and easy to cut up due to the crispy crust. The inside was stuffed with tomato slices and pineapples, webbed in melted cheese. Tasted pretty nice. I finished 3/4 of it. I was already full. It’s RM11 each though. With additional RM1, you could get the tuna sandwich.

PG was in town and he asked for dinner yesterday. Unfortunately, I had to join my colleagues for dinner because we just came off from OH’s office. So today I bring the lady out for lunch instead. He said he wanted something nice, premium perhaps. Definitely not something roadside or non-air conditioned place. I can’t think of anything for lunch, I asked him to ring DL up to see if he has any idea.

DL was too KO’ed from the early morning hike in FRIM, he said he can’t think of anything because his brain was sucked dry by those leeches. Anyway, I suggested that we go to Solaris since PG never been there. And perhaps we could try out Ole-Ole Bali. Yes, it’s my day off on strict diet this weekends.

Unfortunately, when we were there, DL said he heard of few not so pleasant comments on Ole-Ole Bali. Then I suggested to go for Michelangelo’s instead, since someone recommended the vongole pasta there. Well, the price tag definitely fits what PG wanted, though there were rarely any air cond because we were seated on the outside. All for the sake of nicer photos.

If I didn’t see any aglio olio on the menu, I would’ve definitely go for the vongole pasta. Seeing that I’m a sucker for aglio olio, I can’t help it but to order it. Instead of spaghetti, I asked for linguine. On the other hand, DL was tempting PG with his cup of Guinness Stout while PG can barely hold it.

... apparently, I was allowed to order a cup of fruit mix. Apple and watermelon juice mix. Not the 3rd type though.

... yup, RM9 cup of fruit juice and all I got was a cup of diluted fruit juice.

My cup of fresh fruit juice was rather exceptional. Yes, it was exceptionally bad. Look at how badly diluted it was. 90% water and 10% fruit stuffs. It was RM9 a cup, I bet they use Evian mineral water on this. My aglio olio linguine was really bad. Aside from the rather non-existent aglio olio scent, the linguine was rather hard, almost uncooked. The taste, it was bland and I can’t feel any garlic taste at all. DL was complaining north, east, south and west on that spoonful of linguine that he had. RM18.90 for a plate of nothingness. Very good!

PG gave me a clam and mussel. They were both juicy, though the clam was rather tasteless. It was mildly cook, so it was tender. I guess that’s why the vongole pasta was good. The mussel was sweet though. DL complained that the seafood was not fresh on PG’s pasta. That’s what PG said, the prawns were not fresh. And my comment? The sauce tasted like kerosene.

Somehow, the pizza was nice though. The fragrance was good and the taste was above average. Better than most of the pizzas out there. DL whom was lactose intolerant was liking it. He said he took the piece without those cheese on the topping. Yeah right, he totally sucking on the molten cheese the middle layer. Though the pepperoni was rather lacking but the nice fragrance and taste made up for the sparing ingredients.

With such pricey tag, I guess I won’t be seeing the lights of Michelangelo’s anytime soon. Though we found out that, on 3rd June (or onward?), Michelangelo’s is having 50% off promotion on their main course, provided payment is made with Public Bank’s credit cards. Perhaps I might stop by for… a vongole spaghetti.
