Bubba Gump for Shrimps

Recently I feel like eating shrimps and prawns so off we went to Bubba Gump at The Curve, Mutiara Damansara.

3 of us ordered Fisherman's Catch (about MYR41.90) and Shrimp Pasta (about MYR32.90) with drinks to share.

Shrimps sauteed with Capers in Lemon-Garlic Butter and Linguine. I find the pasta to be too al-dente for me. Parmesan cheese are sprinkled on top so if you don't like cheese, do remember to request the waiting staff to omit the cheese. The shrimps taste fresh enough and not too crunchy so I quite like it.

We removed the Fisherman's Catch from the bucket. Flash Fried Calamari, Golden Shrimp and Breaded White Fish dusted with Cajun Spices with fries. Good for those who like to eat crispy deep fried food. Too much deep fried food here for me in one sitting so we put half of them into our containers to eat later at home.

I ordered a glass of strawberry smoothie - about MYR13.90 which is way too sweet for me until I feel it is burning my throat. Luckily we also request for a glass of iced plain water so I drank it to soothe my throat. The cup of hot coffee costs about MYR5.90 and I have forgotten to take a photo of the bill so I do not know how much it is.

  1. Oh no! Strawberry smoothie so sweet until it leaves a burning feel in your throat? That is not good. I avoid smoothies these days too. I find them to be too sweet.

  8. My bosses took the whole brood of staff to dine there twice on staff's birthdays. We love the food and fun seeing them standing on the chairs on their birthdays!! We have ordered almost everything there and all are very American to me... I like their ribs, thick chips and drinks. Now I am hungry.

  9. Are you bringing your containers everywhere now? Haha.

    Your food looks nice with the newspapers and all. Haven't been to Bubba Gump for ages... wasn't impressed with the food the one time I went there.

  10. I am more impressed with the comments. I will feel geli about being served on newspaper too, but I think in the UK, the old school fish and chips place will serve you their fish and chip on newspaper, no?

    1. When you were in UK, did you get served fish and chips in real newspaper? I went to a few places for fish and chips and they served the fish and chips wrapped in plain paper without any printing on them. I guess it is not healthy to use real newspapers anymore unlike olden days.
