While everyone was away for the long holiday break, I found myself still rushing through deadlines and running around meeting customers and attending meetings. Not what I had expected for the year end.
Nonetheless, it was the final hour of closing, and I decided to take a break, and escape for a time-out lunch to get away from everything and just let me tummy have a decent meal at its own comfort.
After aimlessly driving around, I came to the Awesome Canteen, which I had always wanted to try but usually drove past it. Until today, there was a parking spot conveniently available right in front of the shop…I guess my lunch meal was destined.
I was impressed by the simplicity of the shop’s decor but ended up looking really artsy. Simple metal chairs and tables, with dried leaves and flowers hung on walls, and big framed drawings hung all over. It was also an art gallery place/ makan-makan place.
The food serving time was a little disappointing. It took nearly 30mins for my food to arrive and I was really starving. After several attempts of reminding the waiter, my sandwich came. Thankfully, the sandwich was rather delicious. Properly toasted, crunchy, and the grilled chicken was quite tender and flavourful. Only wished that the portion was bigger.
The grilled soba was actually quite food also. Well marinated. To bring out its flavour. Good quality grills but only wished that the portion was also bigger.
All in all total damage was about RM 30, which was a little premium I would say. But I guess you are paying for quality food and nice ambience. The cakes look good also but a little too pricey as well.
I was glad that the lunch break happened. A real kit-kat moment was truly needed. Alright, I am all charged up for the year end Christmas and New Year weekend break!
