It was just like any other Friday evening – the dreaded KL jam, the horrid rain, the eagerness to get home to get ready and welcome the long weekend until my sis got a call from my mom informing an aunt had passed away.
Ok granted we’re not that close, it is still a shocker and sad when a blood relatives passes on. My dad being the closest had dropped everything and gone to arrange the funeral.
2 hours had passed by; when we get a call from my mom informing that our aunt wasn’t dead after all.
“You mean she’s back from the dead” I remember how my sis creepily squealed.
Turns out she was never dead in the first place. My uncle who we all suspect is going senile swears he saw her drop dead while they were out and about for Thaipusam in Batu Caves. He had somehow managed to take the bus back and alerted the rest of her demise.
When in actual fact said aunt was pretty much alive, waiting at the information counter. She had problems remembering phone numbers (including hers!) hence the delay in calling for help.
I swear this drama can only happen when you’re Indian
Anyway, after the fiasco, the husband wanted to resume plans of having dinner at Frontera Bar & Grill at Jaya One. Google the restaurant and you’ll find lots of reviews from bloggers about this place.
SADLY, enticing free food to bloggers who in return do you a favour and give you excellent reviews is just really sad.
First off, décor was somewhat simple, unlike how it was raved on most blogs. I like how some photos were clearly taken to make the place look elegant.
When in reality it was pretty much simple.
Never mind that, I don’t care much for décor. It was the food that got to me.
Food was just okay. Nothing out of the ordinary, nothing that would make you say WOW and make you want to drive all the way from KL to PJ again JUST to have food here, absolutely nothing like how it got raved on blogs! It was mediocre.
When you read awesome reviews on blogs, you expect your dish to be of quality, taste and standard. Period. What we had was just so disappointing, it wasn’t the most delicious meal we’ve had, neither was it the most horrible but I should have known better that free food/sampling equals to clouding of judgement and taste by some people, ahem.
Service was rubbish and somewhat ‘selective’, if you get what I mean. Not even a simple thank you was said after we paid the bill, which is down right rude. So that was RM100 down the drain for utter crap.
And now looking back at some of the comments on these bloggers post, alot of people have commented how food isn’t as fantastic as read on blogs. Mental note: read real people’s comments next time and not ‘paid’ adverts!
Definitely wont’ be going back to Frontera Bar & Grill EVER AGAIN no matter what other blogs say.
