MHB’s Emma Soh and her boyfriend joined Andy Kho, and our friends Veron, Bridget and I for the preview of the Arthur’s Sunday Brunch at FriendsCino Viva Home Shopping Mall. The outlet is located on the ground floor of the mall and is relatively easy to find as it’s facing the main road. Now you might think that FriendsCino sounds familiar and that’s probably because you have heard or visited their original outlet in Damansara Perdana. Well FriendsCino has decided to expand to offer their new multi-concept darts bar/ lounge/ restaurant to KL folks with the opening of their latest outlet in Viva Home.

There are savoury and sweet options available in the buffet. For the savoury items, there will be the usual scrambled eggs and sausages, coupled with beef bacon, garlic bread, baked beans, sautéed mushrooms, potatoes, and delicious grilled chicken. You can help yourself to as much as you want too!

I liked pairing the beef bacon with the garlic bread!

On the sweet side, there are pancakes and bread and butter pudding. Veron really enjoyed the pancakes while I favoured the fluffy bread and butter pudding. The best part is that there is free flow of Guinness draught throughout the buffet! Think it won’t go together very well? Think again as the creamy and malti flavours of the Guinness balances out both the savoury and sweet dishes!

If you're the type who likes your greens, there are a couple of different salads to choose from at FriendsCino

We decided to have our ice-cold pints of Guinness draught inside the darts area and try out the dart machines. The machines are pretty interactive and provides a wide option of games for up to 4 players.

In place of the normal mat which measures the minimum distance  is a slightly raised and lit platform which effectively stops players from encroaching over the minimum distance.

All the girls didn't have any darting experience but they soon realised how easy it was and soon started enjoying it

Photos with Andy Kho’s watermark were shot using the Sony NEX 6. As you may notice, the Sony NEX 6 is already a very capable camera and I expect its replacement model the Sony a6000 to be even better. Hopefully I’ll get a chance to review it soon.

Photos without Andy Kho’s watermark were shot with the new Sony a5100 and you can get more info on the camera here – Sony Malaysia’s website (click here).
