As promised, revealing the answer for the last post...
List of participants:
Big Boys Oven--Ikea meatballs
Babe_kl--Purple brussel sprouts
Jason--Boiled dwarf potatoes
Char Siew Bao--Chicken testicles
Tankiasu--Bull testicles
Wmw--Meatballs but not from IKEA
Nipple Joe--Yucky meatballs
Daphne--Mashed yam balls that look ewwww
Tim Low--Boiled Chempedak seeds in some kinda sauce
teckiee--So smooth one, sure meatballs meh
ilovepearly--Baked red potatoes

And the answer is.....weirdo looking MEATBALLS!

So the story goes...

I was looking for a decent and nearby eatery to have lunch on one mundane monday, little did I know that my choice turned out to be an unpleasant experience.

The menu is pretty extensive, offering western, fusion, chinese and limited japanese dishes. Ambiance wise, the place is cosy and comfy, you can choose to be seated outside and enjoy the garden view.

Taadaa...this is my choice of main which turned out to be a disaster--Swedish Chicken Balls (RM15.90) that look ewww and tasted terribly salty.

Char siew bao's main was Spaghetti Prawn Olio (RM23.90) which was quite decent but overpriced for such portion.

As usual, Char siew bao's daily dose of caffeine--Hazelnut Cappuccino (RM6.90).

For desserts, I was tempted to try the lychee sundae (RM7.90) which I expected them to serve me nice lychee flavoured sundae. To my horror, it turned out to be one scope of low quality vanilla ice cream and artificial looking and tasting strawberry ice cream, drizzled with bright red syrup and topped with 4 lychees. I was like...'huh???? So this is lychee sundae that costs me RM7.90?'. I didn't take the picture though as it was too unbearable presentation wise and taste wise. Sad....
Char siew bao went for the banana spilt (RM9.90) that tasted similarly horrible. Just avoid the desserts when you have to dine here.

Will avoid the meatballs then when we dine here. Sometimes no choice so end up eating here quite a lot of times.

How would I know their desserts are so deceiving one leh...haih...

This place is rather sad and empty on weekdays. Should hav noted that.

I think their coffee is not bad. But ample room for improvement on their food.
