Not so-Romantic Dinner in a Cave

Well, this isn't a new story to share with you guys, but biar lah!!! i still want to tell you about my experience having a dinner inside a cave (kononnya lah!!). This restaurant is located at SS2, PJ. It has been quite sometimes since me and hubby wanted to try out this restaurant, but no chance to do so...so out of the blue, we went there last friday to see what soooo special about this restaurant...

The Cave Cafe kononnya is for couple to dine in..so ok lah!! once in a while having a nice dinner in a different place will be nice lah konon. The restaurant is not like an open restaurant where everbody sit together makan-makan. It has private rooms for couple to enjoy their meal. Hehe

So standard lah kaDusMama posing while waiting for her food. I don't know what's so special with this single room for couple to makan coz it has no door and only thin curtain to make it private. Konon nya! No candle light found and only the ugly-wall to be seen..! Chis!! But not to disappoint ownself and hubby, i try to think positive about our dinner and patiently waiting for the foods we ordered..

Our drinks arrived first and duhhhhh!! the apple juice and honey lemon bukannya sedap pun! But still trying to be positive here, i told hubby sure the foods will taste nice..no worry konon!!

Actually we ordered one appetizer before the main dishes, but funny was, hubby Shanghai-ntah apa tu reached first. Well, the taste wasn't so bad lah..i mean its edible but, i think there is other shop can cook better than this. The name was so special, but i think the taste is more like wantanho only..!

8 minutes later, our appetizer The Cold Japanese Octopus finally arrived and hmmmmm..i kinda like this dish though. I'm not sure it's because of the gravy or because of the spicy taste, but i think with it's price of RM18.50 (kecil saja the plate tu..the sotong pun berapa ketul saja), ok lah!! not so rugi eating this nice dish.

My food only arrived after hubby finish his mee. Punya lah geram!! How to be romantic like that?? I mean hubby finished his food already and i've to eat myself after..there was no romantic ambience at all during our dinner there..supposed they play lah song like wonderful tonight ka, or any lovey-dovey songs, but what they did was, pasang lagu R&B with dancing tune like that?????????? Ayoooooo..some more like pub songs like that!! *slap hubby's forehead* Bout my food, hmmmmm...it was a total disaster!! hahaahaha!! seriously!! The salmon taste too raw, and it was cooked with spinach and the long bean???????????? what the.....!!!!!!!! Even the cherry tommato taste like it was already stale!!!!! Eeeeeeee...But not to waste the food ordered, i ate it finished and was ready to tell the whole world about my so-not-nice experience eating there..hahaaa!!!
But what make our dinner worse was, because of the few ah bengs and ah lians laughing hysterically from the next room and the kononnya couple's restaurant sounds more like Ah Beng's kopitiam to me. Seriously!!!! The restaurant owner shouldn't let them make soooooo much noise like that. I mean, we went there to enjoy a nice and peaceful dinner, but what we get was, very noisy inconsiderate people from the other room. I think they should go to kopitiam if they wanted to chat that loud!!!! Spoiler sungguh lah!!!

So we called for the bill, and the total amount was RM84.05. Well, since it was me who pay for the dinner that night, i feel sooooooooooo rugi have to pay that amount of money. Not so nice foods (except that octopus) + noisy surrounding = 98% Dissatisfaction. I usually didn't mind paying a bit extra if i'm satisfied with the service and food i got, but this...ayooooooooo not satisfied at all lah. Hubby told me, if we went to the nearby Hawkers Stall, we can get the nice butter escargots, nice grilled fish, nice kam heong lala and lots of other stuff which definitely will cost less than the amount i was paying at The Cave Cafe.

So thats it..no more Cave cafe for us forever and ever..rugi only makan like that!! I advise you guys don't go there if you have the notion to dating and hoping for a romantic moment. That place is not suitable at all. But if you think you want to lepaksssss there just for fun, then you are welcome there..hehee at least they have R&B songs mah....!!! Hehheee

If makanan lmbat smpai sy ble tolerate lg tp pernah sekali sy order lain, makanan lain pla kana served. Mula2 tu sy terima lg. Makan ja lah cos lapar suda kan.

2nd time visit at the same restoran, bf amuk. He refused to accept the wrong order. Kotoh tu waitress. Ingat org mo tulung everytime dia buat salah kali.

Tp mmg geram n rasa nda berbaloi byr mahal pdhal kualiti kurengssss..

KDMum (itu panggilan special tuu.hihhih), I saw 'socket' on the wall in the private room...ada provide WIFI ka sana tu...coz ada socket means kita boleh guna untuk laptop or charge hp (pandai2 mau charge hp la mangkali..hhihi) uuhh..kalu ada WIFI boleh la ber 'internet' sambil2 tunggu tu mkn sampai...cewahhh..(terbayang-bayang mkn 'bambangan' dalam gua..yaaii)
