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.

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.

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.

I wouldn’t go into detail on the food. The drink was very similar to calpis soda I’ve had last time in Senjyu, with soda on top and syrup at the bottom. Stir, not shaken. Do it just like James Bond’s style. The pepperoni was quite nice, tasted like roasted beef bacon. I guess it’s probably the best tasting pepperoni pizza I’ve tasted. Somehow, the meat was a tad too salty though. Then the aglio olio spaghetti, which tasted very salty too. The lamb shank was tender, though it was pretty tasteless too. I could class it as 1 of the no-so-tasty lamb shanks I’ve tasted.

I guess for the price I’m paying, I can’t complain much. Seeing that I was paying the same figure back when I had it in Singapore, and I haven’t sum in the currency conversion yet.

Today’s food sucked. The Tom Yum Spaghetti wasn’t much like what I used to had, the first time. The spaghetti was overly soaked and the surface was coarse, unlike the usual smooth feeling spaghetti. Then the tom yum paste was not as tasty as it should it. I felt like vomitting trying to finish it. Then the iced lemon tea was very diluted. Though it only cost RM1.50 when I had it as a set. The set cost RM15. The Tom Yum Spaghetti ala carte was RM13.50 already.

I had a serving of the Chocolate Walnut Brownie too because they ran out of the Vienna Brownie. The top of the brownie seemed scraped off. Were they trying to recycle excessive chocolate? Anyway, it doesn’t really taste that good either. Fortunately, the brownie doesn’t cost too much, around RM4.50 each. Cheaper than the drink itself.

I told PCL about the new menu in Full House last week and she wanted to come. Unfortunately, I can’t make it for another round of Full House. This week, she was available for lunch, so we make a stop at Full House.

The fish & wedges I had was quite bad. Though my strict diet insisted that I should only have a small piece the most. The rest of them went into PCL’s plate. The fish, the common Dory fish, it stinks, as usual. The aglio olio spaghetti, which was very nice the last time I had it, was a little less salted today. But it was still good, better than Michelangelo’s aglio olio.

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.

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.
