Coliseum Cafe & Grill Room @The Gardens Mall

It is my day with my little princess, Ying Ying. She is getting cuter every single day. We had our own sweet time at Coliseum Cafe & Grill Room. This restaurant has been operating since 1921 and this is the first time after 92 years, they started to branch out their restaurant to Plaza 33 and Mid Valley. This restaurant has clinched Malaysia Book of Records award for the "Longest Operating Western Colonial - Themed Restaurant. Their first ever restaurant is at Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman. 
It is not easy to sustain this long. They surely has their uniqueness in their menu to keep their customers happy. One of the reason is they are pork free restaurant. This easily encourage Malay citizens which stands more than 70% in Malaysia to enjoy western food in this restaurant.
Mushroom Soup @RM10.90++
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 2/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 2/5 - I have made my own mushroom soup before so I understand how it is made. It is made from chicken stock which contains MSG ingredients in it. For this mushroom soup, the MSG taste is just too strong and just lost the true mushroom taste in it.

Onion Soup @RM10.90++
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 2/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 2/5 - This onion soup is a little weird because I do not know how an onion soup is black in color. As for the taste, there is slight onion taste in it but most of all is just salty taste.

Baked Crabmeat @RM22.90++
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - It is made from a crab shell and filled with minced crab meat in it. Pretty creative and unique. The taste is delicious too especially the crab meat is very sweet and tender.

Hainanese Chicken Chop @RM26.90++
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 3/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - Acceptable but not a must order dish.

Sizzling Tenderloin Steak @RM57.90++
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - Their signature is their steak. You will definitely feel it is not enough when it is only 150gm steak. The tenderness and softness is really making you feel wanted for more. That is the reason they can sustain their business for 93 years with just their steak.

They really got a lot of customers lining for it and I personally think that it is recommended just for their steak. Other than that is far from impressing me. 
Total Damage: RM154.30
Ambiance: 3/5
