Friendscino

Living up to its name, this restaurant features sparklingly friendly service.

Can't complain about the mango & apple salad with wasabi dressing _ it tasted exactly as expected. No second-rate ingredients, mercifully.

Chicken-&-egg burger. Forgettable. But in our semi-sober state, we became philosophically flustered by the juxtaposition of the egg with the chicken _ the first never had the chance to truly live, the second survived for awhile, but both ended up on the same plate.

Farfalle in veggie sauce. This light, fuss-free preparation provided a refreshing change from the creamy, complicated pastas we've had in recent times.

Dory fish fillet with pesto sauce & mashed potatoes. Fairly fresh, but uninspiring. A one-dimensional dish, both in taste and texture.

Cherry Hooker (cherry brandy, orange juice) & Honey Green Tea.

Drink & Die (vodka, sambuca, tabasco sauce) & Chocolate Martini (creme de cacao, vodka).

Friendscino,
Damansara Perdana.

  2. Hehehe, I am a little bewildered like TNG too! Have resisted this place vehemently despite its cheap and cheerful drink promos, simply on account of that name! But I hear you on that chicken-and-egg reflection... and we could probably apply that to humankind. So many half-baked lives among us to the very end. And to add salt to the wound, we probably don't taste anywhere near as good as chicken or egg between buns!

  3. tng: curiosity factor! and actually, i like the outlet's name. i'm a sucker for corny names. and anyways, it's a nice, laid-back hangout, heheh :D
    min: i think you underestimate how good we humans might taste (i'm certain that we're not as bland as chicken often is)! but yeah, here's hoping that we'll lead lives that are fuller and much more meaningful than those of broiler chickens!!!
