One dark night…

…we went back to this relatively new restaurant in town like I said we would. It certainly looks nicer at night and of course, this time around, we ordered from the à la carte menu.

I had the over-roasted chicken roulade (RM18.00)…

…and loved it very much. Well, I never had anything like that before and I must say that it tasted really great.

My missus had the char-grilled sirloin steak (RM28.00)…

…which was all right but I would prefer a little bit more sauce or gravy and the meat, a bit more tender. I think what I had here was much nicer…especially with the red wine sauce.

My daughter tried the fettuccine carbonara (RM18.00)…

I guess it was o.k. – like most pasta dishes anywhere else…but for that same amount of money, I think I would rather go for the chicken.

We were given these slices of garlic bread, compliments of the chef…

…and we also ordered their spring rolls (RM7.00)…

Melissa has a soft spot for deep friend spring rolls, you see.

For dessert, I had the strawberry shortcake (RM10.00)…

…which was not bad but would come nowhere near the banana pancake that I had here, cheaper some more @ RM7.50 only, or the banana cake with chocolate ice cream that I had here – also cheaper @ RM7.00 only.

All in all, the dinner was pleasant enough and I would not mind going back there again…but definitely not until they have finished the road and whatever construction that has been going on and on for so long that it does not seem like it is ever going to end. Well, what can we expect from JKR – Jangan Kerja Rajin!

It was so very dark and I was going at a reasonable speed along one narrow lane, a long line of cars trailing behind me…when suddenly TWO of those huge luxury vehicles came straight at me. I did not know what they were up to but they realised they were in the WRONG lane, so they stopped and did a three-point turning and went back the way they came. I stopped to let them do that…but the cars at the back were honking away impatiently! Tsk! Tsk!

I guess we will just have to wait till there is some horrendously tragic accident in the vicinity or some VVIP is coming to town and will be passing that way before they will get the job done in a jiffy…like magic! Abbacadabra…and presto! Overnight, it is done!
