Too Much Of A Good Thing

Did I eat too much? You bet !

It all started Sunday when I eventually set foot on Brass Monkey-Tg Aru Plaza. The kids enjoyed it! Everything, the pizza, the sandwich, the fish & chips, the bread pudding. Even my mom-in law savoured the fish&chips. Me? I had the set lunch of grilled fish. Was good..xcept I don't fancy much the choice of fish. They use barracuda. A bit hard texture like meat. But I love everything else.

So, the next day I was out on my own, to the bank and stuffs. I got pissed by the parking problem and this next thing always happen, I tend to counter the bad feeling by going somewhere nice and have a fabulous lunch. And I have no qualms about eating out on my own.

Ok the place is not exactly fabulous. Quite tiny with just enough space to move about. But the food is good. It's good. And as Shabbymom said, RM 15.50 is so worth it. I mean u spend like RM 27 at Secret Recipe and it's not that great. You don't get soup and dessert.

OK let's not waste time justifying. What did I have? I took the buffet set lunch. Except for the nasi goreng and sayur timun ( a no-brainer! it's a western, keep it western man!), I sampled everything else.

I started with the soup. Buffet - u can go crazy with the croutons & garlic bread which I did! Hmmm...excellent appetizer..

I had the salad. They've got the potato&apples and green salad.


The main course, first I sampled pasta with bolognaise sauce and tried both the beef dish-beef stew and grilled beef. (motif dua2 beef !). Both are great. At this juncture, I feel the next table was watching me so I stopped snapping photos. After they left, I carried on. Hence this almost gone dish..

Bangun lagi (xcuse me!) for the next course. Pasta with white sauce, 2 pc of lamb, honey chicken, mash potato, grilled fish and a dish of chicken with mushroom in white sauce- I don't know what's the name. All are finger licking!

And..actually I got up to take another piece of the lamb..(matilah tebarus!).

After slowly sipping my drink and finally admitting I couldn't stuff no more, I finished with dessert of bread pudding and some papaya slices.


I'm actually quite embarrased. I was behaving like as if I'm a professioal food critic who review newly opened restaurant in a certain magazine. Taking pictures before eating and sampling every damn thing with a serious face. Kah..kah...kah..
