The Manhattan Fish Market, Sunway Pyramid, PJ

Another food session using my discount coupon purchased earlier. :)

A set of giant fried platter that consists of prawns, calamari, mushrooms and fish served on a bed of garlic herb rice and chips with broccoli and carrot, all for RM32.40

A treat for hubby for selling off my apartment at a fairly good price and without having to pay agent's commission literally means a fatter profit to pocket.  Thanks honey and this is the commission you deserve. Wuakakaka.....   

We had brunch quite late at a coffeehop nearby our house.  It was a Sunday, we strolled the shopping mall for a while before deciding to have early lunch.  It was noon time then and the expected crowd hadn't started to form.  The service was slow, instead of serving the new customers who walked in, the crew were kept busy clearing empty plates off tables eventhough the place was not even half full at the time.

Hubby ordered an add-on from the menu: a piece of mud pie that came with two cups of coffee.  The coffee was served lukewarm which I'd have preferred it hot.  He wanted to order drinks for the boy too but I was quick enough to stop him.  We were supposed to be there for a bargain, no.. it would defeat my purpose of getting the discount coupon if we failed to play along that line.  Instead I ordered 3 of us each a glass of sky juice, free of charge. :) Call me cheapskate or whatever you wish but I like to think of myself as a thrifty person. ;)

Hubby almost had to finish the whole platter by himself with the boy and myself taking one or two pieces sparingly off the platter.  I am not a fried food person myself but I enjoyed munching on the juicy mushrooms fried to the colour of golden brown and fried fish fillet.  It went extremely well with the accompanied tartar sauce. 

As contrary to me, hubby loved and enjoyed eating everything served in the platter especially the garlic rice but not for the boy and me though.  We each had few spoonfuls and were somewhat put off by the strong aroma of garlic in the rice.
My cup of lukewarm coffee

The boy tried to finish his mud pie which he didn't.  I took a bite and it was hard and like biting on melting ice giving me the impression that it was "fresh" from the freezer.. The leftover ended up in hubby's tummy.. our official "bandaraya" in the family. ^_^
