19th Century @ The Curve, Mutiara Damansara

I bought MORE books at Borders today! I'm so excited that I had to start the post with this announcement. LOL! I've gone YA (young adult) and bought lots of YA books by Holly Black and Melissa Marr. They're all in my wish list and since I have my Borders Pass with me that entitles me to a 15% discount on all full-priced books, I decided to splurge. I'll tell more in tomorrow's Mailbox Monday. Stay tuned!

OK, let's get back to the start of today's event. Ro, Sun and yours truly have finally managed to meet up today after so long! I missed both of them like crazy. I missed their laughter and their jokes. We went for a late lunch at 19th Century (Address: Lot 153, First Floor, Western Courtyard, The Curve, Mutiara Damansara, 47800 Petaling Jaya, Selangor, MALAYSIA), a place that looks good enough, but sadly the food left much to be desired.

Before the food came, we "played" and there will never be shortage of laughter with Ro and Sun around
The salad that came with the lunch sets
Row's pasta lunch set (MYR18 or ~US$5) was decent
I ordered the "Italian Job" (MYR20 or ~US$5.55) that comprised pancakes with turkey ham and sausage. I didn't like it. Initially I ordered tuna burger (MYR28 or ~US$7.77) but it was not available.
The fish lunch set (MYR18 or ~US$5) smelled very fishy and tasted weird. We complained and had it changed to the chicken set.

What I liked about the restaurant: I don't know what to say...

What I disliked about the restaurant:
  • The staff seemed to have problem understanding our English. It took them a while to "digest" what we'd said.
  • The food was not good and the only thing that tasted decent was the chicken dish that replaces the smelly fish dish (which the supervisor or manager claimed that it was supposed to taste that way). My meal, the Italian Job, tasted funny...
  • The food is overpriced, at least that's what I thought for the Italian Job I ordered
My conclusion: I don't think I'll return to this place.
