... in italy!

haha i wish. we had dinner in KL je. no money to dine so far.

we were watching a show on tv the other day and the Coliseum came up. we haven't been there for such a long time. for one thing, it's located at jalan tar in the middle of the hustle and bustle of traffic. i haven't been into the heart of KL ever since i stopped working at the twin towers - kl traffic is not something i look forward to. the only available parking around the area is located behind the restaurant, an old overrated open-air car park with the possibility of your car getting bird-shitted being 99%. i can park a whole day at mv for the same price i park my car there for a mere 2 hours, more or less. huhu.

Coliseum is really old, everything about it is old-fashioned, including the people working there. after watching that segment on tv Significant Other urged the whole family to go for dinner there one Friday night, so we did. i haven't had a decent steak in awhile. if i go to the Ship i'd without fail order spaghetti + spinach, haha. bengong kan?

things have changed slightly since we were last there, but otherwise more or less the same. the people working there weren't 'old-looking' for starters haha.

as for the main dishes, looks wasn't that good, however the taste was satisfactory. each steak came served with salad, potato wedges and steam cauliflower + broccoli. what was a bit disappointing was that each set no longer came with its own hot bun + butter. we had to order that separately, and even then they served us roti keping instead hahahahhahah.

we each ordered a steak dish for ourselves (minus the children of course). each of us were given a bib to wear, minus mil who absolutely refused to don one on lol. Significant Other liked the food so much we actually ordered another set to share between the us. mil says the quality has depleted considerably compared to the last times she was there.

this little girl wanted rice. of course we didn't order rice, so we ordered mushroom soup for her instead (which came with bun + butter lol). she didn't even want to touch the steak until i kelentong that it was actually chicken, then only did she down almost 1/4 of my dinner.

the little one insisted to feed herself as usual. and threw a tantrum each time i tried to take my iPhone away from her sighhhhhh.

the desserts changed slightly, in a weird way. previously their fried banana fritters and ice cream were deemed delicious by us. we ordered two plates to share between us, but this was what came:

funny-looking banana popiahs served with ice cream. it was like eating a banana popiah, with the exception that the bananas were freezing cold T__T. so different from the fried bananas that were were accustomed to. PASS. although i must say, i polished off the popiahs, pregancy hormones punye pasal hahahahhaha.

the other dessert we tried was fried ice cream. Significant Other liked it. i didn't. looks like mashed potato with sauce to me lol.

have you been there? you should give it a go. then let me know what you think of the food there. don't just take it from me =D
