I think it's pretty common knowledge that Conti's Bakeshop and Restaurant is a bit upscale so it's no surprise that a small serving of whatever it is on their menu is sorta pricey. So I'm advising anyone who has an appetite of a hippopotamus not to visit during crucial times, i.e. when stomach is mega empty and last meal eaten was five hours ago.
I'm not going to bitch about the price in relation to the serving size in detail because I don't really want to sound stupid - I know who Conti's' target market is and although I'm not part of it (LOL), I still made the conscious decision to visit it once again last Friday because i was craving for the much-hyped Mango Bravo.
So I'm going to rate the food that I ordered (and have tried before) + description from munchpunch.com.
