Carbo Loading At Olive Garden

It's actually lunch with colleagues, but as we had lunch at Olive Garden a few days before the now cancelled SCKLM, it also served as part of my carbo loading meal.

Though truthfully, I rarely eat pasta to carboload before a full marathon or an ultra. I prefer my banana leaf rice more. Hah hah

Anyways, the 6 of us decided to share our orders to enjoy more variety.

For all entrees that we ordered, we got either free refillable salad or soup. We were also served with breadsticks. And it was yummy!
We ordered the gnocchi chicken soup, opting out the beef selection as some of us don't take beef.
Plus the minestrone soup.

And salads too.
Then we ordered two types of flatbread, Sicilian Pineapple and Triple Cheese Carbonara.
We continued our meal with Lasagna Primavera with Grilled Chicken.

Truthfully, at this point, I was already feeling stuffed.

But we still had more coming!
Next, our pasta. A very rich Chicken Alfredo.

Kenyang ady, wei!

Still ada thing we ordered!!! Greedy. LOL
Next was, our Salmon Risotto.

It was nice, but by this time everyone was feeling jelak from all the cheese and cream we consumed.
Then, our appetizer arrived, Lasagna Fritta. It should have been our first dish, so we didn't really enjoy it fully, what with being full and all.
Lastly, our desserts.

We chose the 5 in one set Dolcini.

And I had my cappuccino.

It was a great lunch.

We were full to the max. Portions were big and generous. Service was fast and friendly.

And with a 10% on our total bill when we pay with an MBB credit card, it's totally value for money.

I think we only spent about RM260+ for the food and our drinks too.

  6. Looks like fine dining stuff to me. I have only ever tried Olive Garden in the US. There, they are NOT fine dining. They serve huge portions (huge even by American standards). It is somewhere truckies (or fatties like me) go...
