Coffee Bean @ BSC.

It's Friday again so how was your week so far? For me, Urgghhh...kinda lack of substance for this week, imagine waking up at 6, reach office by 8, fingers on the keyboard for 5 hours, lunch at 1, continue fingers exercise for 5 hours, reach home by 7, work out at 8, cook nudles at 9, eat at 10, sleep at 12. Then the vicious cycle starts again 6 hours later.
But anyway, it's friday today! Yippeee!
Last Friday, we went to BSC for lunch, as usual, we walked from the 1st floor to the top and then to the 1st again, arguing on where to eat...then finally managed to reach consensus on settling at Coffee Bean.
The hot food selection is seriously limited, and overpriced too. I ordered tomato herbs pasta, regular serving priced at Rm14.90, but the waiter told me that they are only serving 'kid size', priced at RM9.90. Huh? O_o I was totally confused, can't they just cook more pasta to make it a regular size? But anyway, good for me as I would be able to allocate more quota for dessert. But then...
Errr...with snoopy characters on the plate! Felt abit humiliated actually :(
Yar yar, I managed to finish all so I get first prize isit?
The serving is so darn small, I finished off the pasta in less than 2 mins time.
Char siew bao's lunch is more pathetic than mine. He had chicken avocado sandwich, priced at RM14++. The bun looks ugly, and the filling tasted just weird and weird.
We were totally unsatisfied and ordered tiramisu from their dessert counter, priced at Rm8.90. Tasted like those commercialised tiramisu.

I still dun understand why I ended up having lunch here. So lesson of the day is 'Plan ahead!'.

Poor thing! I once ordered a kids meal in Chilis as it had something I wanted badly. The waiter was so amused abt it.

BSC has Esquire Kitchen if you want a budget meal. Their noodles are nice and so's the cooked dishes.

Aiya, What a bad decision to go coffee bean for your friday lunch. A waste of time and money... There is a shop that sells furnishing and home products on second floor (??) which sells nasi lemak and has quite a good choice of menu. Don't aske me the name of the shop. Forgot already lah......

Xiu Long Bao said...

kok:

teambsg:
Really? How did you come across that policy? but dats inflexible n lousy i would think :(

wasabi:
Oh! that 'House & Co'. I luv their nasi lemak. Great presentation. But it is always full house!! Wana try it at first but all tables were occupied..too bad.

It is the knight noah which makes me very happy these days, my brother says knight gold is his favorite games gold he likes, he usually knight online gold to start his game and most of the time he will win the knight online noah back and give me some cheap knight gold to play the game.
I am so happy to get some last chaos gold and the lastchaos gold is given by my close friend who tells me that the lastchaos money is the basis to enter into the game. Therefore, I should buy last chaos gold with the spare money and I gain some cheap lastchaos gold from other players.
