Happy new year everybody! How was your celebration? Hope it was a blast. As for me, I know I did. Managed to catch up with old friends and was honored to spent NYE over at Life For Beginners‘ place. What started as an intimate home-cooked dinner for 4 turned into this social gathering with good delivery-pizzas, salad, pasta and other store-bought goodies. Had a wonderful time filled with non-alcoholic (thank God!) laughter, despite the fact that he tricked (or outsourced as he would like to say) me into being his kitchen slave, cook, florist and audio guy. Thanks bro for inviting us over. Really. It was fun being in your “non-sexy” abode and watching Menara Citibank burst into flames at midnight. Wouldn’t have asked for another way to close the year…but then again, I do miss Lis & Ivan who’s in Singapore. LOL. I kid!
So back to the question in hand, how did you spend the first day of the year? McCutie and I decided to be brave and adventurous in the spirit of a brand new year.
After reading many good reviews from fellow bloggers over the last few months, we finally got to check out what the fuzz is about. And boy do we have to agree with them on Frontera Bar & Grill at Jaya One. They serve probably the best Tex-Mex food I’ve tasted in recent memory.
It was a pity that we didn’t get to order the famed Frontera Ribs or enchiladas which I’ve read so much about. They’ve apparently sold out the night before and hasn’t been replenished yet. The waitress then recommended us to try the Tex Mex Burritos with Mexican Rice & Refried Beans (RM19.95). After taking a bite into them, I just couldn’t stop singing its praises. The burrito was so fresh and light. Bountifully wrapped inside were these super tasty beef chili. Best thing ever I tell you.
Across the table, McCutie’s order of Frontera Burger (RM15.95) with choice of BBQ Sauce and Cheddar Cheese was really good too. The beef patty was HUGE and packed with goodness. Not to mentioned it was oozing with juices too. Other value-added features on the order were crunchy buns, freshly fried fries, a whole bunch of vege, and jalepeno-spiked coeslaw. This is like the heaven of all heavenly burger, compared with the disappointing NYNY Deli‘s version. Actually, a comparison shouldn’t even be made. They’re just not worthy. Some people should just learn from the pros!
I can’t wait to see the l.o.m.l.s again, just so I can bring them here for another round. Hope they’ll have all the stuff I wanna try and desserts too. Looks like it’ll be another year of ‘healthy’ eating!
P/S (5-hours later): After a wonderful dinner, I am somewhat disappointed at myself for tainting this experience a little. While looking through the receipt, I just discovered that I was billed for a portion of Chili Con Queso (RM18.95) which we never ordered. The only thing I requested for was an additional side of it that’s supposed to cost RM3.00 more with every meal ordered. Funny this is that, I don’t feel rip off but you think they’ll give me a refund? 1st lesson learn for the year: while busy fighting to get the bill with your loved one, double check your bill!
