Yesterday, I disclosed an unfortunate incident which had led to my visit to the burger place in this post. Unfortunately, I was told to remove whatever I said because it offended the parties involved – serves them right. Anyway, I have removed the first portion of the story, and below is the remaining part of my original post:
I picked Anisah up from her house in TTDI and we ended up at The Curve because we didn’t know where else to go. I don’t have a restaurant preference when I visit Mutiara Damansara (I tell a lie, I love Burger King and IKEA), but I’ve been dying to try out the new Johnny Rockets burger place along The Street. To my immense joy – Anisah did too!
OBVIOUSLY I had the Smoked House Single as it was the only burger on the menu without any salad. OBVIOUSLY. Vowing to eat healthily and lose weight does not apply when I’m out having burgers. And if I was going to ruin my diet anyway, I might as well go all the way.
Urgh. Salad. Urgh.
My burger was tasty, but not mind blowingly tasty as some reviewers opine. The bun, albeit bigger than normal, had a thin and coarse texture and reminded me of the generic, cheap bread rolls you can buy in bulk in supermarkets. The patty on its own is bland, so thank goodness for lots of BBQ and chilli sauce! Additionally, I know I’m not a big fan of vegetables, but I always finish the salad that comes with my burgers. However, no amount of Thousand Island sauce could mask the bitterness of the shredded cabbage served on the side. Also, despite being assured that my lime juice would be “fresh”, it was obviously cordial. Liars. I know freshly squeezed lime juice from cordial!
I’ve definitely had much better burgers, and both Anisah and I agreed that a next visit is not something we would have in mind. But I suppose it’s another restaurant option for me to visit when I’m at The Curve (I don’t know where else to go. I’m always at Burger King or IKEA). Maybe it about time I start trying out the other places.
Maybe. Just maybe.
I love routine, though.
I love being predictable.
