Cao Cao Catastrophe

DSC02273
We've been down on our luck.. or rather pretty bad with our timing.
This is the 1st time in 2009 that we have managed to eat at CAO CAO lamb because it has been close all 3 times we swung by here for makan.
How do you find this place.. ? It's easy - find FGA just off old klang road and you find Cao Cao Lamb:)

Hmmm.. someone should have a word with the wantan mee stall about wasting so much water.
(OK, so I sent Cumi coz I don't know how to dodge/throw a punch... kidding, kidding... :P)

The smell is intoxicating! The sultry, lascivious smell of red meat on the grill, cacooned in cloying fumes of seared animal fat, hit my nostrils and make my toes curl.
They take 20 minutes to serve me but I feel it's all worth it :)

Hmmm, that's a little strange. The portions use to be a lot bigger for RM8.50 ... (actually RM7.00 not too long ago)

Digging into my Cao Cao lamb... I am even more dismayed to find that 60% of the lamb is BONE!
Very disappointing for the amount of money paid for my hunk of meat I tell ya. Might as well eat at some of the Western joints in PJ where at least you get less bone on your lamb and even chips and veges on the side!

The Satay here saves the day! Lean Chicken (breast meat) and a good dollop of greasy peanut sauce and I've already (half) forgotten about my lamb... :P
Other thoughts on Cao Cao:
Lamb:5/10
Satay:6/10
Salt factor:high
MSG factor:high

I was watching Red Cliff (The Three Kingdom) last weekend and the wily Northern emperor called Cao Cao. That aside I like the meat without much of the bones. Really disappointing.
