Sit A Spell Cafe, Kota Damansara

I looked at the pictures.
I closed my photos file.
Have been doing that for a few months, but I guess I should stop avoiding.
My one and only time to Sit A Spell Cafe and I'm in no hurry to return to this place.
The place was quiet. It was cold.
Dragon girl asked me Are you sure?
Why not? Let's try la..We'll try this sooner or later...
The waiters were staring at us like a pack of hungry wolves..maybe first prey for the evening..Take a deep breath and we were seated. Menu was not extensive, ordering was prompt.
Honey Peach Smoothies for Dragongirl.. Tasted more like cordial with finely crushed ice. Nothing smoothies about it.
I had the Ice Blended Chocolate. Too diluted and lack of chocolate flavour. Very average drink.
Had the Cappucinno Mushroom soup.. Light but still quite flavourful..
Chicken Roulade with mash and mushroom ragout was served next..Dragongirl took a bite of the chicken.
So??? I asked, waiting for her reaction..
Tastes like very, very dead chicken came her reply..
I took a bite. I understood what she meant. Maybe they kept this dish frozen for too long? It had the frozen food (albiet a very strong one) taste that even smothered with the mushroom ragout; could not be covered. Very bad.
Lasagne came next.. This one fared better; sauce was creamy and smooth; the lasagne sheets were soft and melts in mouth. We had to have a mouthful of this everytime we took a bite of the chicken..
Still adamant, we decided to order the Green Tea Tiramisu..I think it was not fresh.
The texture was rather, erm, weird. Not so much of green tea (dust); but more of green tea essence (flavouring). The cheese felt too airy, after a few bites, I had this strange feeling of eating green tea marshmallows. Oh well.
Total bill RM53. Will I return? Slim chance.
After dinner Dragon girl and I went for round 2 as we were just not satisfied.
Sit A Spell Cafe is located at 19-1, Jalan PJU 5/11, Kota Damansara.

Yikes! Sounds awful. Been seeing some pretty good reviews about this place too. I guess that means that the food's inconsistent. I can imagine the smell of the dead chicken dish. hehehe.
