Food Review - Roma Pizza

I am not a pizza person. The overswhelming taste of cheese sometimes make me dizzy and high. Hence, I would usually avoid having pizza especially those with cheese. However, this time around I made it an exception since I am having lunch with someone whom I hardly meet nowadays due to work commitment. Sorry Fadzillah, sibuk skit lah sekarang.
Hence, I wanted to eat at somewhere is not that crowded and where we can talk and do some catching up. I suggested this place located in Avenue K called Roma Pizza.
Roma Pizza is a small outlet but the ambiance is very nice and comfy. Not too many tables located in the pizza place and they have more outside the place. They also have this bar stool like table which create a casual scenario.
What special about this place is the pizza is served on a plank. Very unique which you don't really find in other pizza place. Other places usually served on a pizza pan - biasa je lah.
I love the BBQ Chicken Wing here. The dip is also nice, the normal chilli sauce with added spices and herbs. Awesome!
Ambiance - 3.5 - love how they decorate this place, very suitable if you are having lunch with friends
Location - 3 - Strategic!! Just next to KLCC LRT station.
Taste - 3.5 - prefer the pizza here, very crispy and
Service - 2.5 - lembab skit ler, pastu mcm tak pay attention jer....
Price - 3.0 - for this kind of food, I don't mind paying....
Try this place. You won't regret it!!!

Food Review - Harrods KLCC

I always love Harrods. Back when I was younger and still enjoying my dad's entitlement working with MAS, we went to London quite frequent. Apart from visiting Asda, Queen Anne and other locations, Harrods was another venue which is a must to visit.

So, when I heard Harrods KLCC is opening, I was very excited. I miss all the trips we used to have and having to have one store which I adore right beneath where I work is something I really look forward to.
However, I was quite dissapointed. The variety of products were very limited and it looked like a bakery rather than a real Harrods. What do I expect? If I want a real Harrods, it should be as big as Suria KLCC kan?

Anyway, one day we went to have our lunch there. Never felt so English before. Again, the menu was very limited and not really suit the Asian taste. I guess they really bringing the authentic Harrods to Malaysia.

I had the roaster chicken while a friend of mine had this beef steak with this custard thingy, entah apa namanyer, forgot lah.

The review :

Ambiance - 3 - not too bad, overlooking the KLCC water fountain
Location - 3 - If I am already in KLCC, convenient lah.

Taste - 2.5 - dasar perut melayu so not really to my liking
Service - 3 - very polite and courteous, however, the food was a bit slow and I was really starving!
Price - 2.0 - mahal siut. Meals for 3 person was RM160!

I will only come here again if someone else is paying. Otherwise, makan kat food court jer ler.

Food Review - Bangi Kopitiam

Kopitiam, kopitiam, every where you go there's kopitiam with all kinds of name. Oldtown lah, new town lah and many more to mention.
However, the kopitiam I am gonna talk about is the Bangi Kopitiam located in Bandar Baru Bangi. Was told this place is owned by Kid, the former Search guitarist. Not sure how true this is and was made to understand this place also have several outlets in the city.
This review is a combination of 2 visits to this place. First one was just me and my better half and the other visit was with the cuties.
The first visit, we ordered Nasi Lemak Ayam Rendang, toast bread with scrambled eggs and bread with chicken curry. And of course, what's a visit to kopitiam without having the kopi o kaw!
The second visit, we had mee hoon hailam, nasi ayam hainanese, asam laksa, toast bread with half boiled eggs on top and toast bread. Having difficulty to load this photos, will do so once I get the freaking internet to work here in BSP.
My ratings :
(4 being the highest)
Taste - 2.5, ok lah, not up to my expectation but not too bad either
Ambience - 3 with real kopitiam ambience, the furniture and decorations were suitable.
Location - 3 suitable with ample parking.
Price - 3 oklah, not too bad just like other kopitiam's pricing.
Will I come here again, maybe if I am craving for the kopi o yg memang kaw and the tasty toast bread with butter and kaya. The rest, not so lah.
