Tony Roma's Lunch Sets

I finally visited Tony Roma's and gave their lunch sets a try. I've been eye-ing their lunch set menus and finally tried them out with Louisa, Pui San, Charis and Ben. Another reason why I was eager to go was also because I had RM20 worth of vouchers with me. Hehe..

Tony Roma's lunch sets start from RM16.90 onwards, and your selection of main course is inclusive of a bottomless drink and a Soup of the Day. Sounds like a pretty good deal?? It IS a good deal, if you compare the RM16.90 Tony Roma's lunch to lets say; Nando's, where RM16.90 gets you only a quarter chicken meal without any drink.

Trust me, I'm so not being paid to advertise Tony Roma's. I'm just a little tired of people going, " rich ah you, eat at Tony Roma's!!". And of course, good things are meant to be shared. Sharing the good deal info to all of you. Anyway, pictures for you all. I don't normally include prices in my posts, but I will do so to avoid any confusion over the pricing.

Salt and Pepper

Tony Roma's signature sauces

Complimentary bread with garlic butter spread

Soup of the Day
I would recommend going for their Potato Soup because
it has a very thick and creamy texture with flaky potato chunks in it. I loved it!!

Bottomless Ice Lemon Tea and Coke
They came in such HUGE glasses it wasn't really necessary to refill.

And now for the main courses...

Chicken Tenderloin Platter

The honey mustard dip that came with this was very nice. Couldn't get enough of it. Even after finishing the chicken, we were dipping our fries into it. Haha!!!

BBQ Chicken 1/4
The BBQ Chicken lived up to its name since the chicken had a very nice smoky flavour to it. The meat was tender and not too dry. Very yummy.

Buffalo Sandwich
I've always been used to tasting the sauce on starters; e.g: the boneless buffalo wings in TGIF's. So it was quite different to taste it on a main course. Nice and interesting.

Big Stack Burger
I have an obsession with photographing burgers...
The patty was very juicy and tender. The bacon that came with it gave an extra kick to the flavour. Mmm... It may seem weird to some for us to order burgers in dining places like Tony Roma's but the difference between burgers here and McDonald's is the patty quality. Try it sometime and you'll appreciate what I mean.

Okay, I have come to the end of my food review. If your stomach is growling, that's a sign. Go try the lunch set!!! =P

Chefs at Home

Just a short one on some home made meals I have shared with friends recently. (I knowww I am behind in updates. Doing my best. Hehe!!) Anyway, here goes.

VEMAL proposed to be the chef during our previous makan together, so he went back to Ipoh to consult his guru/mother and came back with three boxes full of fragrant home-cooked BRIYANI RICE. Abel and I helped make a salad before the meal. Took a surprisingly short time and we had a very awesome dinner together; Vemal, Abel, Emily, Joshua and I.

Nasi Briyani (cap Vemal)

Dahl (cap Jafaar..Haha!!!)

Cucumber and Apple Salad

Yum yumm...

All ready for us to boil boil boil!!!!
Table full of yummies waiting for our tummies. :D

Dinner with Shalz again (=

I had no idea that Shalz was on secondment in KL for such a long period (if I'm not mistaken, 2 months???), but anyway; I'm so happy she included me in her meet ups with her cousin Vemal. (Click here to read about our previous meet up) Thanks Shalz, for taking the time, braving the roads of KL and putting up with my abysmal sense of direction even though you must be so busy at work. I hope I can be like that too when I start work in the future.

So the other day; while we were all sitting in agony in P2 class, Vemal unexpectedly asked me if I wanted to go out for dinner since Shalz was coming. Aside from me, Abel was included too. They encouraged me to call Ben since they still have not met him; so I texted him and was doubly surprised and pleased when he said he would come.Image Hosted by
With Ben on board, I was looking forward to the evening. One, because we were going to MURNI in Aman Suria (my favourite Murni branch) and secondly, we won't get lost because Ben knew the way. Teehee. And three, good company for dinner.

The night went well. We had a very merry time chattering and laughing. We sat at a table outside and it was a challenge for me to photograph the food in the dark. Haha!! First I used flash and it turned out like this:-Then I fiddled with some settings and managed to take better albeit a little blur photos. Hmm..this is a step though. I understand my compact more now. Haha!! Okay, foodie pictures of the night.

My Mango Special
I took several pictures but it somehow looked like glow-in-the-dark drink. =.=

Shalz's 'I-Love-You'

Ben's Watermelon Special

We ordered the Mee Raja Tom Yam to share but the portion that night was so small compared to the other days. And a tad too salty too. =( What gives??

Chicken Napolean
was quite good.Image Hosted by

Roti Hawaii (Beef)

Roti Hawaii (Chicken)
I supposed they differentiate between them with the mayo patterns?? Image Hosted by Anyway, we were stuffed after we finished eating. There was a little scuffle with Shalz over the bill (she tried to pay again!!!) but in the end we settled it among ourselves. Thanks Shalz, we really appreciate the gesture but you already belanja-ed us before, we cannot always let you belanja!!! Get a transfer to KL so that we can see you more often!!! =P

Canton Fare : Dim Sum Brunch with Family

2010 marks the second year since my maternal grandmother, Por Por left us. To remember her, the whole family gathered to pay a visit to her grave site and later had a family meal together. This visit, my cousin Benjamin read some Bible verses in Chinese before we prayed as a family before we left.

I have no doubt, had she been alive; Por Por would have been very proud and pleased to hear your reading, Ben. You're her first grandchild, among us, who is literate in Chinese. I'm proud of you too. :)

(random picture of a unique plant Yoong and I saw in the graveyard)

After the visit, we went back to freshened up and met up in my Yee-Yee's place before heading to Solaris, Mont Kiara for lunch. Yee-Yee was taking us to Canton Fare. We've been there seperately before on a few occasions but that was the first time all of us went there together. To read about my last visit, click here.
There is another branch in Damansara Heights but I've never been there before. Upon arrival, we were ushered upstairs where the whole place was booked for us, haha!! Since there were no other patrons around, my Mum and aunts started posing around and I quite enjoyed my time watching them pose and helping them snap. (Sorry for taking so long to upload photos but do look out for them in FB alright??) As usual I aimed my camera at the dining table too.

Canton Fare is currently having a dim sum promotion. If you're a fan of these yummy bites of heaven, do go give Canton Fare dim sum a try. Here's pictures of the assorted dim sum we started of with :-

Then we had some soup before the main courses arrived. Yoong and I shared the winter melon with pork ribs soup:-
Then the PEKING DUCK was served!!! I love how they make somewhat of a ritual of it.Image Hosted by First they will set up a little side table next to your dining table.

Peking Duck

You get to 'Ooohh' and 'Ahhh' at the juicy roast duck lying there waiting to be carved.

Then you observe while the waiter carves
the juicy, crunchy skin off the duck with expert skill

And the skin is served on the table with wraps and vegetables...
..for you to eat popiah style!!!

And the rest of the meat is served as part of the main courses. No waste, of course!!

Uncle Alex had brought along wine to complement all the meat we were consuming. And since now the table consists of 'kids above 18', Yoong and I also got a wineglass each. Yay-ness!!


Personally liked the white wine more.Image Hosted by
Of course the duck was not the only thing on the table. Besides that, we also had Canton Fare's much celebrated Roasted Porks; Char Siew and Siew Yoke

Nice siew yoke with crispy skin

Their char siew is totally succulent..can't get enough of it!!


Fried Seafood Noodles

Steamed Fish with Special Soy Sauce

Stir Fried Chicken

The staff there were very accommodating and put up with me snapping pictures here and there. This waitress even arranged the fish back nicely for my photo since she cut it before I snapped it. =P
Needless to say, we were all full to bursting by the time all the main courses were served. The 'adults' all declined dessert but we (the 'kids') still had room for the Mango Pudding. Yoong was especially looking forward to this one. Haha!!!
Mango Pudding's taken me days to sort through and upload these pictures. I made myself hungry a few times while arranging the pictures here. =.= Anyway, a few random pictures before I end this post!!!

The sisters (not including the little one of course. =P )

And Ben, I'm so glad you're still not too old and macho to let me take these pictures of you!!!
