caffé 1920

caffé 1920

i went to 1utama today. it has been quite awhile since i last roamed the malls.

and of cos, i had a few food places in mind that i wanna try out after reading some flogs (food blogs). i was reading precious pea's flog yesterday and she recommended caffé 1920. it was initially not on my mind as i was more looking forward to try out shihlin's taiwan street snack which i read about it over at masak-masak.

please dont question me weather ive been reading my superdupertrooper sien accounting books or reading flogs, you should know the answer if you know me well 'nuff. blehhh.

anyway, here's my take on caffé 1920!

the menu: colorful, informative and interesting

i opted for the set meal. there were 9 choices of mains, while the drinks and dessert is the same for all sets. i chose the eggplant and beef parmigiana- rm14.50++.

layers of eggplant, mozarella cheese and beef patty topped with egg served with toasted baguette

chocolate eclairs

i used to despise eggplants (a.k.a. brinjals, terung, aí guà). but now i find 'em acceptable and yummy too. there were two fat but thinly sliced eggplant in the main course, also it had loadsa mozarella cheeeeze and eggs!! funny but it tasted not too bad. i thought the cheeeeze would be very overpowering as when the waiter served it on my table, the mozarella cheeeze had such a strong smell! (if jill smelt it, she might faint) but after tasting it, i think the eggs helped to contra the cheeeezy taste (i dont know what word to use, hence the word 'contra'). i didnt quite like the beef patties though. it tasted like ramly burger patties to me.

the dessert was a stingy piece of chocolate eclairs with, erm i think its chocolate syrup. the dessert was a big putdown. it's hard, and the pastry wasnt fresh. but i whacked everything off the plates anyway, hehe.

the total bill was rm16.68.
5% for gov tax and 10% for service charge.
i would say its reasonable and affordable and i will certainly come back to try out their other dishes.

total bill- rm16.68

do pay a visit to caffé 1920 for their set meals, ranging from rm14++ to rm20++. the food is comparable to secret recipe (choice-wise, even better).

next post will be on taiwanese food!! stay tune, folks!
