The Valentine’s Day menu.

The candle and rose that greeted us.

The appetizer. The prawns were so damn small. So mini. Look at the picture after this to see what I mean.

No drinks included in the RM99 tax excluded Valentine’s Day set. Ordered honeydew juice.

The soup. Nice actually.

The butter and buns.

The palate cleanser which actually made us feel fuller. Not a good thing.

Then came the main course. I had the salmon while

Vinny had steak. Both were pretty delicious.

Then came the cake. It was just too sweet. Moreover, we were already full.

This was as much as we could take. About 3-4 spoonfuls. And I felt uncomfortable being told to “eat it lah, once in a while eat sweet sweet nevermind wan. Try lah, try.” and “aiyo. cannot finish ah? tapau la. tapau abo wasted nia. aiyo.” 🙄

The souvenier that came with the bill.

Anybody wanna try Louis Cafe? I’ve got a 20% discount card.

RM113.40. I can’t help comparing their food quality and price with Mizi’s.

10.30 pm – Went to collect PCJ from Hoe Hin and found that he did not install back the window properly. The window couldn’t slide down. Mr Hin wanted to repair it but told him not to as I was meeting up with my friends soon. The thing I didn’t like was forcing me to collect the car immediately when he was done. Guys, I don’t recommend Hoe Hin at all.
