There's Always A First



Over the sea I go again...as usual off to taste better food on the island than the mainland. My friends and I visited PastaMania at Gurney Plaza. This was the first time I ate there. There was a promotion going on where you can get a free soup and garlic bread with every order of a main course and a drink. Quite worth it. There are lots of choices of pastas and pizzas. You can choose the type of pasta you want. I had carbonara spaghetti which was prepared with turkey bacon, egg, parmesan and cream. Loved the cream and parmesan. It was definitely to my taste. Some may not like it because it's a bit dry but if you can bear with that, it's very tasty. I tried Adrian's chicken bolognese spaghetti after having some of the carbonara and I felt that the bolognese was tasteless. Carbonara all the way I'd say. My only complain is that the bacon was hard and very salty. I think it would have been better without the bacon.

My friend's and I also shared a pizza. We ordered the Sesame Coriander Chicken Pizza. It had a soft thin crust which I don't really like. There was a very strong taste of onions and sesame. Definitely not for the faint-hearted. My friend could only manage one slice of it. I'm alright but the taste is pretty pungent. I won't be ordering it again. For me, Domino's still better than this and Pizza Hut's just less choices.

Overall, I'd rate PastaMania 5/10. The spaghetti I had was good, the garlic bread was ok but I've had better ones and the tomato soup that came with the set was thick and I approve of it (I'm not a big fan of tomato soup). The thing I like most about this place is the partial self-service so they don't charge the 10% service charge :)

Too bad I didn't have my camera with me...so no pics of food...

We went to play snooker after that. It was really my first time playing and yea it's fun once you get the hang of it. I still can't believe I got 2 red 
balls in! The best part was that I got the black ball in too! Haha...must be beginner's luck! But it's expensive playing at Mega Que Ball. RM15 per hour...ouch...

So there you go...2 more firsts in my life.
