The best mushroom soup I have ever tasted in my 25 years of existence.

Famouschris score : 9.5/10

Mizi’s complimentary bread. And oh, I ordered green tea cause of 2 reasons. One, it’s healthy. Two, it’s bottomless. Smart leh.

Spaghetti Carbonara. My favourite jenis. Daryl had Bolognese.

About 1 hour after we stepped in, this fella came. He had trouble finding parking la. I think it’s pretty full around new world park during weekends.
