Paddington House of Pancakes @ The Curve

6 01 2008

The first thought when I saw their menu was: ‘Wow there are so many choices!!! Which one to choose?’

Yeap they basically have a lot of types of pancakes and from the different types of pancakes, there are many different choices with different ingredients. They even have some pancakes for vegetarian. They stress that a good pancake has a golden ring around it and their’s really do have. My favourite is Vienna, a 12 inch diameter pancake with a cheese sausage, button mushrooms and lots of cheese!!! A friend ate Amsterdam but he said it’s not that good because there are too many tomatoes which makes it tastes very sour.

Price is moderately expensive. Vienna is priced at RM 16.50 while Ice Lemon Tea is priced at RM 5.50. So total bill including taxes is RM 25.30. It’s definitely worth a try. 🙂

Anyway, picture says more than words. I’m not good in describing anyway :p So I’ll let you guys take a look at how tasty it is.

Christmas Celebration at Piccolo Mondo @ Mid Valley Megamall

30 12 2007
My gang of 5 friends and I went to Mid Valley’s Piccolo Mondo to celebrate Christmas and exchange our gifts since we’ve never been there before and so we decided to give it a try. The 4 of us ordered our food while waiting for the other friend. We ordered a set of roasted chicken, one quadro pizza and 4 sky juice. A friend of mine complained that their special menu for Christmas and New Year has very few selections. Plus, it’s photostated! It made the restaurant looks cheap. The other friend came 5 minutes later and ordered pasta and cappuccino. We’ve waited for almost 15 minutes for our sky juice but it didn’t come until we requested again for twice.

Since we’re sitting quite near the kitchen, we heard that many customers are cancelling their order. The food we ordered earlier came at a reasonable time range which is around 15 minutes. The pizza and roasted chicken were good too. However, my friend’s pasta did not come even though all the food on our table is finished. When it finally arrived, we all wanted to try the pasta because it smells really delicious. After the few of us tried, we found that the pasta is still not cooked yet (and there are a lot of empty clam shells too). So we complained to a waitress there and she asked whether we wanted a new one or we wanted them to re-cook the pasta. So we said we wanted a new one. After 5 minutes, the pasta arrived. Imagine that! The first plate took 30 minutes and the second one only took 5 minutes. Who would believe it’s a new one? We also found that the portion of pasta is same as the one we asked them to took back (each of us ate a mouthful so the quantity is lesser). OK that’s fine with us but the problem is it’s still not cooked yet again! And it has gotten oilier too.Then, my friend requested to see the manager. A guy who claimed he’s the manager came and helped us to change for the second time (God bless us). But we were even more disappointed to find that the taste has totally ruined and it’s even oilier than before after the second change! Even the first plate’s taste is better.

The oily pasta….



….and the clamless clam shell!


So my friend requested to see the manager again. Another guy came. It seems that the guy earlier isn’t a manager after all. He apologized and suggested that we cancel the pasta and order a pizza to avoid disappointment. So we agreed. Finally problem is solved. No doubt their pizza is nice but their pasta and customer service is bad. Last problem is they did not cancel the pasta! I only realized that after I paid with my credit card so I have to wait for them to void the transaction and issue another new transaction before we can really leave…


About the gift exchange, LH bought PS a hand phone stand, Christine bought KL a hand phone stand (what a coincidence!), PS bought me a solar energy doll, KL bought LH a color changing snowman (cool!) and I bought Christine a USB eye massager (quite cool too :p). PS, LH and I bought our presents at Action City (another coincidence!). Take a look at our cool presents!

And these are my other presents! A Ralph Lauren perfume, Sasa’s RM 10 voucher and socks!





Jogoya KL @ Starhill Gallery

29 11 2007
Went Jogoya KL on 28th November 2007 for dinner as they are having promotion. It is located at Starhill Gallery, Relish Floor and the restaurant has 580 seatings. Ladies will get 50% discount while gents will receive a complimentary King Prawn dish. However I found that the tax for ladies is based on the original price which is RM 88. For gents, the price including government tax and service charge is RM 101.20. It’s worth the price though as the food there is extremely delicious!!!
What’s special about this restaurant is they offer a wide range of cuisine which includes Dim Sum, Handroll Sushi, Teppanyaki, Deep Fried, BBQ, French Cuisine, Italian Cuisine, Soups, Ice Cream, Cookies and Cakes!!! A lot of people are also fighting over the coconut drink. A man even argued with a woman there saying that she took too many coconuts. The place for 2 is not so nice though cos you’ll be facing a wall while eating. I personally don’t like this feeling although some people will think that it means you don’t need to see other people eating and they won’t see you too.
About the food, the sushi is very tasty because it’s made of fresh ingredients especially the salmon! The tempura is extremely crunchy too but make sure you’re fast or you won’t have the chance to grab it. The French cuisine also made my saliva drooling. The cheese is very special because you can feel it melt in your mouth as soon as you put it in. Very different from the cheese you eat at Pizza Hut. As for the oyster, I warn you not to eat those large size ones because it tastes like Pulau Ketam’s sea water. I personally think that the teppanyaki style of fried bean sprouts is not that tasty as well probably because I don’t like to eat sour food and they put vinegar on the bean sprouts. As dessert, I had marshmallows, marble cookie, sunflower seed cookie, strawberry mochi (which is similar to Chinese’s ‘lo mai chi’), chololate chip cookie and brownie. YUMMY! Unfortunately I didn’t have the time to eat their Haagen Dazs ice cream.
Another special thing about them is you need to place your order on certain food such as Teriyaki Prawn, Teriyaki Chicken, Deep Fried Squid and Cod Fish. Just place the clippers with your table number into the bowls and they will prepare the food and deliver it to your table.
One thing lacking about them is that it’s hard to find a straw and beverage cup!! We have to reuse our cup if we wanna have another kind of drink. Yeeee…. I hate mixing drinks.

Be sure to go there earlier because you still need to queue up to pay and get your seats even if you have made reservation.

Brunch – RM 78++ (Weekdays: 11.30am-1.40pm, Weekends: 11am-2pm)
