AHMO, Georgetown

Listed as one of Axian's favorite, I just can't miss the chance to find out the truth about this western restaurant which is known as AHMO. Axian is the presenter of a local food programme which is called "Taste with Jason". It is available in AFC channel in Astro. This place is quite dark and quiet at night. Pretty scary if you plan to walk here.
AHMO blast @RM12.90 - Mixed with 5 different kinds of fruits which I do not find it "blasting" for me. It is rather a plain sourish drink.
Shitake Mushroom Soup @RM5.90
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 5/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 4/5 - Very creamy soup with rich mushroom taste. What I am expecting the most from a mushroom soup is to have lots of tiny bits of mushrooms in it and they did it just right. This is a great one for the start!

Classic Caesar Salad @RM20.90
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 3/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - Overall I like this salad except two things. I prefer the egg to be a poached egg and the chicken meat should be from the drumstick which is tender and easy to chew together with the salad.

Tom Yam Seafood Carbonara Spaghetti @RM16.90
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 2/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - They got the creativity of getting the Thai tomyam flavor in a pasta but unfortunately the tomyam flavor is way too harsh for this meal because it has cover all other flavors such as seafood freshness and creamy carbonara. One more thing I do not think the tomyam flavor is not anywhere near the original Thai flavor. It is more like a Malay tomyam.

Grilled Tiger Prawn @RM59.90
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 2/5
Price: 1/5
Overall: 2/5 - Sorry about the blurry photos...lack of light in the restaurant but carrying a flashgun for dinner is a little exaggerating. Anyway, looks tasty and the whole prawn is easily take out of its shell. Freshness is 100% after the first bite but when chew went on and all I can taste is saltiness. It is VERY salty. Lastly, just two prawns = almost RM30.00/pc??? 

Overall, I do not think this restaurant has made it as my favorite as what Axian's believed. I would say it is over rated or their quality is declining.
