Food: Groupon Deal - S'Mores Restaurant @ The Sphere, Bangsar South [Non-halal]
A few weeks ago, Groupon had this deal for S'Mores Restaurant. RM130 for 1 pork platter which includes German chorizo (aka pork sausages), English roast pork, pork ribs, rosemary potato salad and 4 mugs of Tiger beer. A meal that boasts of feeding up to 8 person. We came in 10 so we ordered one extra plate of pork.
It was my first time at The Sphere, Bangsar South and S'Mores was easily located from the outdoor car park.
Extra dish: Pork with honey mustard sauce. Super love the taste!
As you can see, the 'mug' of beer is really a glass of Tiger beer. Hahaha. And the two sauces that comes with the pork platter - apple sauce and BBQ. The apple sauce was nice.
We swapped three of our beer with juices.
Overall, the food was really nice - no complains at all. The ribs was a delight.
We took some time to order because of some communication problems. I really don't mind restaurants hiring foreign workers but I mind when they are not able to communicate with customers.
Another thing is, the waiter told us that no plain water or sky juice would be served because we bought the Groupon voucher. Well, this means that indirectly, they are making you order their drinks - this move is perhaps offensive to customers as it was not stated in the T&C of the Groupon deal. Most of the restaurants and cafes in Klang Valley will serve plain water upon the customer's request - even if they offered a deal.
Anyway, when we finished, we were given a "complimentary" jug of water. Lol, so thankful. As we were about to leave though, we saw some stains on the jug. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. Anyway, we told the waiter about it.
Also, did I mention that I got bitten by mosquitoes? The place I was seated was infested (prolly exaggerating but I was really irritated) by mosquitoes. My friends and I were bitten and we could literally feel the mosquitoes flying at the bottom of the table. I think this the first time I get mosquito bites when dining outside. I hope they do something about it because I told the waiter about this too. LOL. Feedback is important, people.
Restaurant has a nice ambiance and most patrons on that day were seen with the pork platter - so I assumed most of them came with the Groupon deal.
