步入这所位于新山报馆街末端的独立式大房子，沿层拾级而上，先入眼帘的就是那长长的爱情锁之路。啊～ 原来新山也有如此浪漫的餐厅🌹每家餐厅皆有其视觉符号与美味密码，浪漫绝对就是 Greenet 带给大人的第一印象，这里的每个角落仿佛皆不愿让大自然的光线落单，颇有情人相互守护之意。
From the celebrated Pont des Arts over the Seine in Paris to the N Seoul Tower in South Korea, the tradition of “love locks” dating back to the First World War has captured the imagination of lovers the world over. Mostly couples have embraced this popular bucket-list action of sealing their love by clipping padlocks onto bridges, fences, railings or anything else it can be attached to. By throwing away its keys, the couple essentially seals their fate to make their love last “forever”. Still, wanna declare your affection but unable to travel the miles? Now there is a place in Johor Bahru where this tradition is being observed so you can treat your beau or belle to the ultimate romantic dinner, while we will show you how you can make it happen!
简直浪漫满屋啊～ Greenet 将偌大的空间分隔为二，推开门后即能瞧见大型落地玻璃将自然采光引入室内，与窗外的绿植视野相呼应，「日落之际，还能边赏那一抹夕阳霓光，静享愜意美酒佳肴…」
再望内一探，大人已决意将这两个不同的空间划分为: 白天与黑夜。可以想像在有星星的夜晚，坐在星空下与挚爱佳人共度的那一刻，氛围该有多浪漫啊～ 「大人，大人～ 醒醒，该点菜了。」真是不好意思，大人被这环境给醉了片刻。
Located on the roof level of a converted bungalow inside an unique all-glass enclosure, we couldn’t help but noticed the stairway to their upstairs premises is already filled with dedications by different customers who have dropped by, with names of couples, friends and family written on the love locks and securely fastened on the metal railings.
Designed with full-size glass panels for its roof and walls, there is also a sliding canopy to shield the interior from the day’s heat; and by night, patrons can enjoy an intimate dining experience in air-conditioned comfort under the stars, while enjoying the soft green hue of its floral surrounding.
意大利式羊腿 Italian Lamb Shank
好有佳节气氛的摆盘！这意大利式羊腿 (Italian Lamb Shank, RM53) 送上桌后众人先是惊呼～可见其份量有多惊人啊！经过三个小时的焖煮后，一般食客最担心的羊膻味早已荡然无踪。轻轻用刀具划下，「一丝丝的羊肉异常软嫩，来自澳洲的小羊腿被浓稠的意式香料附身已久，味道早已融入其中～ 再搭上两球的薯泥与时蔬，绝对饱足啊！」
Why slave away by the oven when you can order this gourmet “starter” to impress? Red meat eaters would find delectable succour in this incredibly tender Italian Lamb Shank that is slowly braised for over three hours with a varied range of herbs and spices. The decently sized Australian lamb leg is pretty succulent and tender, together with generous amounts of delicious gravy, cherry tomatoes and a highly buttered mash, is quite the bang for our Ringgit.
安格斯牛肉汉堡 Beef Burger
吓！Greenet 的安格斯牛肉汉堡 (Beef Burger, RM26) 如此巨大！喜欢牛肉的看官们，看看那犹如钟乳石滴般的美奶兹与沙拉酱在以新鲜牛肋部位自制的全熟煎肉饼上放肆窜流，面包下还潜藏着两大环的炸洋葱圈，咸甜香浓集一身！罪恶感？仪态？请听大人箴言：「真爱的最高境界就是你一口我一口啊～」
You can expect nothing less but quality grain fed Angus beef from Australia, and the Beef Burger here is no exception.? Grilled to medium rib-eye steak, glazed in black pepper mushroom sauce and smack on some mayonnaise and melted cheddar cheese, two large onion rings and other accompaniments, burgers at Greenet are never dull and only fun to share around. Oh, did we mention our favourite BBQ-flavoured Pringles are also thrown in for great measure too?
童子鸡烩饭 Spring Chicken Risotto
大人开始怀疑 Greenet 的幕后厨师是否早已得知大人的好胃口啊～ 这比餐谱中的显示图片还要大的童子鸡烩饭 (Spring Chicken Risotto, RM46) 绝对需要挚爱挚友至亲的协助啊！「这看起来是日本珍珠米噢！口感略润湿的烩饭有些许印度香料滋味，与平时所尝的意式烩饭很不同。下一回的派对该点哪道菜，大人心里有数了！」
What can we say, Greenet is fast becoming one of our preferred restaurants for seemingly knowing the size of our appetite, and the Spring Chicken Risotto did not disappoint. Well-marinated, stuffed and roasted till fork-tender, the whole spring chicken left a pleasing impression long after the bones are picked clean, while the Saffron Risotto Rice is chewy, tasty and aromatic, making them a great pairing in this poultry dish.
黄梨比萨 Fire of Aloha
这方形的黄梨比萨 (Fire of Aloha, RM36.90/8 slices, RM21.90/4 slices)，最特别之处就是饼皮酥得犹如可颂 (Croissant) 般，一口咬下松松脆脆地滋滋作响～ 「将传统意大利比萨改良为又薄即脆的版本，一不留意就多吃了几片。酸甜多汁的馅料铺顶，口味与大伙儿常吃的Hawaiian Chicken 非常类似啊！来人啊～ 快来杯啤酒吧！」
This square signature pastry is no ordinary pizza. With generous amounts of grilled caramelised pineapple chunks and Hawaiian spiced chicken on a bed of paprika, cheddar and mozzarella cheese, the Fire of Aloha was further spiced up by the robust fresh basil tomato sauce and a more-than-ideal croissant crust that is simply doing plenty of justice for our crowd favourite!
墨鱼汁海鲜意大利面 Squid Ink Pasta
Greenet 的墨鱼汁海鲜意大利面 (Squid Ink Pasta, RM38) 是将墨鱼汁加入意大利面中再翻炒至如图所示，「1，2，3，4，5，塞满海鲜的墨鱼汁意大利面里头有5种海鲜啊！大虾、青蚝、蚌、带子与苏东，材料绝不欺场～ 大人觉得撒上几滴柠檬雨后整体滋味更好噢！」
Craving for more Italian favourites? Presenting our oceanic, heavy flavoured Squid Ink Pasta which comes with generous loads of seafood ingredients like prawns, mussels, clams, scallops and squid rings laid on top of the linguine and cooked in the usual sweet and tangy sauce while the pasta was tossed in squid ink. Drizzle some lemon juice for an extra burst of refreshing Mediterranean crustacean flavours in your mouth, trust us!
《心太软》黑巧克力蛋糕 Dark Chocolate Fondant
After a leisurely meal, the time is ripe to sink our spoon into the Dark Chocolate Fondant, which has just the right amount of wobble with a satisfyingly oozy, velvety centre. Served with a gorgeous banana, mixed berries and premium vanilla ice cream, this is the most satisfying full stop at the end of a perfect meal.
爱情锁 Love Locks
那如何拿到爱情锁呢？ (别着急)「每消费RM150，店家即送上价值RM18的爱情锁 (备有两款设计)，各位佳偶们可在锁上写上甜言蜜语再选个绝佳位子一起将之锁上就行了！」太浪漫了啦～ 大人真心期待新山有一天也能化身浪漫之都～
With a reputation as a destination for special occasions like birthdays, marriage proposals and anniversaries, Greenet is going all out to accommodate the quirkiest ideas, and even tweak their recipes to adapt to the Asian palettes. The prices here are not wallet-busting, so definitely you can take your special someone here. Now is probably a good time to visit Greenet, while they offer their love locks (worth RM18) for free when you spend a minimum of RM150. Alternatively, enrol into their membership and enjoy an RM20 bonus with every RM100 top-up that would probably save you a bit more and help you make your date slightly more meaningful and memorable. The next time you want to “throw the key away” and profess your love in a special way, remember it by going to the one and only bar and restaurant in JB that might make you fall (and locked) in everlasting love all over again…
