Food, Glorious Food...

Weekend of 15th & 16th Sept.

Last weekend didn’t really do much, except to eat, eat & eat. ‘Cause there were so MANY food promos out there, which most people didn’t even realize it existed. For example, did you know that all restaurants in Nikko Hotel are offering 50% off if you charge your bill to ‘Citibank’ credit card? Heck, that’s a pretty good deal if you ask me. There’s a Jap restaurant in Nikko Hotel called ‘Benkay Japanese Restaurant’ which I tried a few weeks ago. The food is not that great (standard stuff if you ask me), but if it’s 50% off, I mean, that makes it great dammit!!!

But if that was great, then wait ‘till you hear this. Just opened at Damansara Uptown was a second branch from ‘Izzi Resaurant’ and for its opening promotion, it offered 75% off total bill when you use ‘HSBC’ credit cards. Needless to say, I took a bunch of friends over there and raided the place like we were cops on a ecstasy drug bust. Downside was, we had to queue for almost an hour to get in there, but it was freakin’ worth it. The food was Italian fare, i.e. spaghettis & pizzas, but the choice was quite numerous and the drinks were bottomless. In the end, total bill stood at RM 160 (4 pax) before discount and after discount it was just RM 42. So each of us only paid RM 10 for a whole stash of food (check out the bill for the food we ordered). Hallelujah and God bless promos:

Yup. Saved on the wallet, but added on the weight. Oh well. ‘Izzi’ was on Sunday using ‘HSBC’. Saturday, it was ‘Citibank’s turn at ‘Planet Hollywood’. Yes, more promos, this time it was 50% off on selected dishes. I had the Chicken Fajitas which was good, but my friend had the Fish & Chips which I stole a few bites and I think it was fantastic. Definitely recommended!!! Total bill was RM 80 (3 pax) from an original RM 150. Delightful. And during the meal, we met an English bloke on vacation in KL, and he was a Spurs fan. It was Arsenal vs. Tottenham on telly, and Arsenal trashed Tottenham 3-1 from a goal down. Needless to say, that bloke went mentally pissed off. Damn I love English fans.

And the foodie promo extravaganza didn’t stop there. ‘Sushi King’ had a promo recently with their Privilege Cards, offering RM 2 on all dishes from the Kaiten belt. I went on a weekday, and yes, the main target was definitely the salmon/smoked salmon, and I had 8 plates on my own, not counting other dishes. After that day, fishes would be scared shitless of me. Dead salmons in supermarkets will slither back to life and crawl away from me. Bbbwwahhaahhaah. And I like it…Spent RM 35 bucks there, but it was all worth it…God bless promos.
