22 July 2012, Sunday
After the weekend full of non-stop rain, lots of little naps and piled up errands, we have decided that it’s time to be out in the city, see a little sunshine and eat a happy, scrumptious meal. Since The Old Spaghetti House has been a long time favorite as you probably would have noticed here, here , here and here it was no-brainer that we have decided where to go to for our Sunday lunch date.
I was not feeling well either and the memory of last night’s delivery dinner from Mang Inasal is another sickening thought. So imagine my desire to finally be able to eat something delicious.
And this is what they served me… after waiting for more than 30 minutes…
From the looks of it, this pasta and chicken combo looked sicker than I was! Chicken Piccata, as far as I know is seasoned and dredged in flour before being browned in butter or olive oil. This is far from being browned as it surely looks pale than I was even when sick.
Not just the look I must say, much more is its taste! The tangy sauce of the Chicken Piccata seemed to worked double-time as the sauce of the supposedly garlic spaghetti. There was not even a hint of garlic.
Needless to say, I didn’t finish my pasta because I didn’t like the tangy sauce on my pasta. And since I’m hungry, I just made do eating the chicken. Such a sad lunch.
On the other hand, my B ordered their porkchop. It was chewy and not the usual taste of a delicious porkchop. It was just OK for a hungry person.
In our hopes to salvage our lunch, we decided to order a dessert and we chose Blueberry Cheesecake Trifle. I was hoping they’ll use real cream cheese but they didn’t. This dessert failed my hopes and expectation, too.
Overall, it was one of the rare chances that I did not enjoy TOSH (Ali Mall branch). I am hoping that their team of chef will improve these food that we happen to try all at the same time.
