These days, I find it difficult to juggle with work, blog and our new home as all requires time and effort. There’s only so much I can stomach without wanting to scream my lungs out. Often, it is work that gets under my skin which then affects the blog because I usually don’t have the mood to attend reviews or events after that.
Since I’m pretty well-stocked with beer at home, I usually self soothe when I get off work. I’ve also taken solace in Arenaa Diner because it serves affordable beer and isn’t too far from office. So I can always run back to fix shit at work. Just in case.
I only discovered that Arenaa Diner serves reasonable Western food..from rif, who doesn’t even work in KL. 😯 The fish & chips here is pretty decent and for RM9.90, you get 4 pieces of fried dory fillet and a generous portion of chips. You can also customize your plate – there’s pasta, burger patty, fish & chips and chicken. I once ate a hearty plate of pasta + burger patty + fish fillet, and that set me back about RM12 or RM13.
During lunchtime, you can order any meal of your choice and top up RM1 for a drink (iced lemonade/lemon tea). And since portion is substantial, I’m full till dinnertime. I haven’t tried the carbonara or spaghetti bolognese yet, but judging from my colleague’s expression, it ought to be pretty decent.
