Celebrated my inaugural "17th" birthday at The Marco Polo Kitchen last Wednesday. Alright, I know those of you that knows me knows better but whatever, it's my birthday and I can be any age I like. haha! Anyways, since I just started my new chapter as a MO a few weeks back and I'm still in my tagging period, I was working as usual on my birthday and was fortunate enough to be able to have the night free so that I could at least had a decent birthday dinner with my lovely HT and family.
We decided to take the opportunity to explore around Johor Bahru for a new worthy food place and based on some recommendation, we found ourselves at The Marco Polo Kitchen (no pork restaurant) which is smack right at the upcoming Bukit Indah area.
|Happy birthday to me :)|
|Their newspaper like menu|
|MP Signature yogurt drink which supposedly is made up of yogurt, pure dark chocolate and walnut but to be honest, I could not taste any yogurt in my drink. It turned up to be more of a chocolate ice blended|
|Starter of the day- creamy tomato soup that's a little tad salty towards the end|
|Baked Calamari with Kidney Beans- I pretty love how the squids blend so well with the lemon juice, olive oil, kidney beans, carrots and onions. The squids themselves are pretty juicy and amazingly not too rubbery|
|Chicken Quesadillas- It's not easy looking for quesadillas in JB, what's more a good one, but we found a pretty good one here|
|We also ordered something from the 'Fine menu'- Snow fish with risotto, french beans and button mushroom with lemon sauce|
|Fettucini chicken alfredo which is really cheesy and creamy|
|Our free dessert of the night courtesy of Ladies Day- the ever classic banana split|
|And finally it's time to make a wish, blow the candle and cut the cake. HT had specially ordered the Humble Beginnings Cheesy Cheese Mille Crepe with peach toppings for me! Such love knowing that the Humble Beginnings mille crepes are my favourite|
|In less than a minute, half the mille crepe was gone! It's really good and what better combination in this world than two of my favourite food in a cake; cheese and mille crepe altogether!|
