Our Unexpected Free Meal From Marco Polo, Johor

WHAT TURNED OUT THIS EVENING'S DINNER was the least expected....  We were looking forward to having a western meal dining at the Marco Polo restaurant without any hitches.  The place was crowded as usual and we were ushered to the first floor for our meals.  For us three persons, three main meals were ordered to be eligible for the membership discount of 50%.  For my two princes, they ordered Pasta with walnuts, Angus Beef steak and for myself, I had a special Pizza wrapped.  My son recommended this to me, he said it is kind of special nowhere else have ever made. For side orders, we had french fries with truffle oil, something new to me too.....

Anyway, our orders came except for the Angus Steak, while waiting, we just shared and ate our food served.  But the steak was nowhere in sight even though we had made several waves to the staff and commented.  The friendly staff kept apologizing for the delay, we saw him made several calls in foreign language and eventually he came over and informed us the there was a shortage of steak and thus our order was delayed or cancelled... My son complained why we were not informed earlier... and the poor guy kept apologizing on behalf.  He asked us whether we wanted to order some other food to replace, but by then, our food were almost finished and we were actually quite full so we rejected.  We just asked for the bill instead.... Then to our surprise, he said, "No need to pay this meal."  What? Really?  Yes, he smilingly replied.... Alright, that was not bad... huh... 
Taken at the first floor of Marco Polo....
Pasta in some walnut sauce and spinach.... 
They tasted really nice though I couldn't eat much... 
Very filling for me... around RM29
And this is under the Pizza category...
Looks like a Giant Puff to me....
How am I going to finish this?
These two were our orders... 
The Angus steak did not come... 
so we ended up sharing our two main meals which was really a wise choice....
Inside the giant puff...something like this... creamy cheese with chicken.... 
Around RM27 or so... 
Our side order.... Straight cut French Fries with Truffle oil whatever that is.... RM17 or so .. 
Well, instead of the Steak, he ended up eating this instead!
LOL... 
Well, Jokes aside... Thumbs up to Marco Polo for living up to its name
and Thanks for the evening meal....

  6. These dishes look very good! They did a very good thing to give you the meal free! I am sure you like the free meal better than having the steak. This will give them a good reputation. I KNOW what your puff is!!! Here, the pizza and Italian places sell them, they are very popular! It is called a Calzone. Folded dough stuffed with cheeses and meats, you can choose your filling. Our son loves them and orders them a lot when we go out to eat.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
