Not Such A Good Deal


A while back, I purchased a meal deal from Favedeal. I did that just to earn cashback from the rewards which required me to purchase a certain value for deals.



Since this cafe is in the neighborhood, why not? For RM21.00 I get to choose from the following :


I chose the 300 Aglio e olio and Nutty Banana minishake. This was what  got.


Let's look at the pasta first.


The pasta was overcooked and bland. The sprinkling of herbs (I believe it was thyme) was overpowering. The chicken and mushrooms were so so.


Thankfully they put the parmesan cheese separately. 


What about the minishake? 


Alamak. The banana shake had a very artificial banana flavor. It was so so sweet. So I ate only the ice cream. The peanut butter cookie was inedible. It had a stale peanut taste. Cannot. Cannot.

This is not a good deal. No more!

  1. Oh oh.. another one crossed off the list... The banana shake looks very impressive and tempting though. Too bad it doesnt taste as good as it looks!

  3. I have eaten at this place before. Did you write the name of the eatery in your post? I could not see any but I could guess it has something to do with numbers - 300? hehehehe! The mini shake is a giveaway.

  4. It looks kind of dirty, so messy, not alluring at all. Artificial banana flavour and so sweet! Gee!!! I sure would not want to drop by such a place a second time, thank you very much.

    1. Pasta is not their forte and the previous management were better at making shakes.

  5. If those are dry herbs, I can imagine as they're are very strong in flavour compared to fresh herbs, so you need only a little. I used to use these type of discounts but have grown skeptical of them lately. Through my experience, I realise that those restaurants that offer discounts, their food are usually not very good. If they were, they won't be offering discounts in the first place...haha! :D
