It’s Father’s Day today, the third Sunday of the month of June, and I wish all the fathers, acting fathers, married lesbians, and many other guys out there a happy Father’s Day..
Most people would bring their father out for dinner or some trip, so do I..I would say that Father’s Day or any other days are actually overrated and it’s just simply hypocrite if the children only appreciate their parents ONLY on that particular day..
But since my sis insisted on doing it, why not, since it’s not always we go out for some nice dinner..
I did it 2 days earlier because I want to avoid the crowds and all..So we had one on Friday at Gardens..
Initially we’ve planned to eat at Fong Lye but the place is packed and got a long queue, hence we headed to Cova..
Cova was quite empty and just the place that we wished for..Been there few months back and the food was great..
We took some time to figure out what we should order..
*My sis Yi Shan (L) and Yi Min*
So my sis got a Heavenly Chocolate and a Lychee Fizzy..
*My dad and I get a pint of Kilkenny each*
My dad and I got 1 pint of Kilkenny each plus another half pint..I didn’t find it especially good but not as bitter as Tiger or Carlsberg..
But the kick was quite some serious shit..After the one pint I actually felt it in my head..
*Braised Lamb Shank*
My dad ordered their Braised Lamb Shank and it was as good as the one I’ve tasted few months back, just that the pungent of the mutton is still there, not much improvement in that area..
*Carbonara Fettuccine and Chargrill Rib Eye*
Both my sisters ordered the Carbonara Fettuccine and Chargrill Rib Eye..The Carbonara Fettuccine was quite creamy and my sis couldn’t finish it so I gave her a helping mouth..
The ham was damn good, it goes very well with the cream and pasta..
The Rib Eye, my sis ordered medium well and it proved to be quite a wrong decision..The beef was a tad bit hard even though it’s medium..
The gravy actually compensated the the hardness and it tasted good nevertheless..Should’ve ordered medium rare..
I got myself a Seafood Spaghetti, nothing especially to shout about but it’s good with a generous amount of cuttlefish and mussels, I suppose..
I had actually asked for the experimental spaghetti that I’d tried during my first visit, which I’ve called it Spaghetti Campur or something, but they don’t seem to have any new spaghetti in the menu..Bummer..
*A family photo*
After eating we actually chilled and relaxed at the place for more than half an hour..
They actually have singers on certain days so we just enjoyed to the music and a short escape from our stuffy home, no thanks to the hazy weather..
The bill came at about RM250 and I guess it’s quite a good deal for the food, considering we are not eating such food all the times..
And all of us were damn full..It was quite a dinner..
How’s your Father’s Day?
