Kay’s Garden Café & Restaurant @ The Waterfront, Desa Parkcity, Kuala Lumpur

Saturday, April 25, 2009

Kay’s Garden is actually more than just a café, it has an interesting décor, a fusion of westernize and Asian elements. It's got a simple yet nice, exotic look and exudes a calm ambiance. The café is got a very nice lake view, and this café is located in a new area, the Desa Parkcity in The Waterfront shopping complex.
For your information, this café is newly opened for just about a couple of months and actually their official grand opening date is this coming 8th May 2009.

To the food tasting, referring to the picture below (in clockwise), there are Ice Lemon Honey (coolly), Ice Chocolate (using pure coco, bitter..), Mango Indulgence (refreshing and nice), a glass of water and Strawberry tea (interesting drink).
Next, the Spicy Seafood Pasta, the taste is abit bland and lack of salt, maybe…. Still, the dish is passable…
Then the Black Pepper Sautéed Chicken with Fried Rice, the chicken is tender and generous amount of gravy to go along with the fried rice (if not because of the gravy, the fried rice is abit dry and bland).
Sweet and Sour Chicken Rice, the chicken is fried and cooked with sugar, pineapple, onions, cucumber and tomatoes which gives a nice crispy texture. Fried rice is still the same, plain and dry…..
Grilled Lamb – Option A – with Mint Sauce (nice sauce actually), the lamb is quite tender and juicy serves with corn, fries, vegetable and broccoli.
Option B – with Mushroom Sauce, the sauce is so so saja and nothing to praise about it.
Seafood Fried Noodle (Udon), the noodle is fried with soya sauce comes with prawns, squids, clams and fish. No doubt it’s a nice dish.
Pepperoni Pizza, round bread that covered with tomatoes or a tomato-based sauce, topped with pepperoni and mozzarella cheese. This is actually tasty and yummy.
Tom Yam Seafood Meehoon, the Tom Yam soup is kinda average only. With the basic seafood ingredients, it’s not bad and not a good dish.
Next, the Nyonya Fried Rice with Fried Chicken Wing, Nyonya food was developed by the Peranakan people of Malaysia and Singapore. It uses mainly Chinese ingredients but blends them with South-East Asian spices such as coconut milk, lemon grass, turmeric, screwpine leaves, chillies and sambal. It can be considered as a blend of Chinese and Malay cooking. So their fried rice is a blend of Chinese and Malay style, that is spicy and aroma…..tangy…..
Teriyaki Chicken, the chef using the cooking technique used in Japanese cuisine in which the chicken is broiled or grilled in a sweet soy sauce marinade. Cover with sesame seeds, the chicken is sweet and tangy. The dish is also serves with mashed potato and vegetable.
Lastly, the Chicken Pita, is a popular Greek fast food consisting of small pieces of meat and sometimes vegetables grilled on a skewer. It may be served on the skewer for eating out of hand, in a pita sandwich with garnishes and sauces. In this case, their chicken is deep fried and covers with lettuce and veges then garnished with mayo. Overall, this pita is good.

Sri Thai Restaurant @ Jalan Barat, Petaling Jaya

Friday, April 24, 2009

Sri Thai Restaurant is located right opposite PJ Hilton and this place is one of the established and favorable to many patrons for many years. Sri Thai offers sumptuous Thai gourmet in a cozy and relaxed atmosphere. It got a retro-feel. Every dish is served with exquisite crockery and fine cutlery made with tradition in mind but quite pricey.

Tom yum is a soup originating from Thailand. It is perhaps one of the most famous dishes in Thai Cuisine. It is widely served in neighboring countries such as Malaysia, Singapore, and Indonesia, and has been popularized around the world. In Sri Thai, their Tom Yam Soup has its distinct hot and sour flavors, with fragrant herbs and consists of prawns, chicken, fish and squid. Their broth is made of stock and fresh ingredients such as lemon grass, kaffir lime leaves, galangal, shallots, lime juice, fish sauce, tamarind, slices of ginger and crushed chili peppers.
Pandan chicken, or (gai ob bai toey), is a Thai dish with chicken wrapped in pandan leaves and fried. The chicken is very tender and flavorful. Yummmmmyyy…
Next dish, the Siamese Steamed Fish. The Fish is fresh and taste a bit tangy, sour and spicy. The gravy is alright and oklar.
Fried Fish Pancake, the fish is marinated with herbs and spices then deep fried in hot wok. Tender, juicy and scrumptious.
Stir-Fried Broccoli with Mushroom, this dish is delicious and it’s nice.
Thai-Style Omelet, got lot of chili and just a simple and normal dish.
Thai-Style Otak-Otak, their chef mixing up the fish paste with a mixture of spices including chilies, garlic, shallots, turmeric, lemon grass and coconut milk. The mixture is then wrapped in a banana leaf that has been softened by steaming. Taste wise is very nice actually, texture is soft and tasty.
Tab Tim Grob (Red Rubies), a Thai dessert, combine with sugar syrup, coconut milk and rose, then scoop a couple of spoonfuls of the water chestnuts fill it with coconut milk mixture. Before serving to patrons, add some ice and serve immediately. Tasty!

Central Café @ Dataran Sunway, Kota Damansara, Petaling Jaya

Thursday, April 23, 2009

Central Café is by far the only (or a couple) Char Chan Teng in Dataran Sunway, but who knows; few more (or many more) may be opening soon. It is a Hong Kong Cafe Style food that is very popular among the young and trendy urbanites today. Central Cafe is opened for business since July 2008, and Mr. Harry, the owner of Central Cafe has adopted the Yellow rubber Ducky as Central Cafe mascot.

Looking at the menu, there is certainly no shortage of choices here at Central Cafe. They offer more than just popular food from Hong Kong. Its large menu is also filled with Thai, Korean, Japanese, Shanghai and local delights that appeals to every discerning taste buds.

Firstly, Yin Yong in Hong Kong style from Central Cafe is really a refreshment compared to others cafe offering. But oklar…
As starter, this is the mushroom soup (comes with set lunch). Basically, this soup is quite dilute and not tasty at all.
Next, the Chicken in Tomato Sauce with Fried Egg, this dish is alright though, but it’s not that great actually, it’s very normal dish only.
Then the Fried Pork Chop with Vegetable Rice, the pork chop is tender and juicy (nice). And the vegetable fried rice is quite tangy and uses the right amount of salt. Yummy!
Fried Spaghetti with Pork Fillet in “Hong Kong” Style, the overall dish is par only and nothing to praise and criticize about this dish…..(so so only)
The Fried Rice in “Yong Chou” Style, first thing first, the portion is huge and for patrons that love to eat rice for their lunch can try this dish. Taste wise, eeeeeeeerrrrrrrr……. Another ok ok dish… sad…
And then the Deep Fried Dumplings, the dumplings are actually not bad at all; it’s crunchy, scrumptious and mouthwatering….

Yu Ai Restaurant @ Jalan Segambut Utara, Kuala Lumpur

Tuesday, April 21, 2009

There is one restaurant in Segambut has been around for quite sometimes and they are famous for seafood noodle. Some of you might have heard about the Segambut seafood noodle and if you are a seafood lover, maybe you have heard about this Yu Ai Restaurant. Do you know what does this Chinese characters - 友爱 means? 友 = Friend & 爱 = Love. So, it’s ‘Friend’s Love’. Today’s highlight will be ‘Friend’s Love’ Restaurant, which offer more than a friendship, but friendly & loving seafood noodles. However, the service is quite bad actually, food serving is fast though but the attitude of the waiter is not friendly and sour demeanor.
The restaurant is located at Jalan Segambut. To get there, you have to take the Jalan Duta - Segambut Highway until you reach the roundabout. Take the 12 o’clock exit and hang a left at the T-junction traffic light. At the first traffic light, turn right. There is a row of shop houses along the left side of the main road. The restaurant is towards the end of the shop lots. Find a parking spot if you can and head on in
They serve 3 types of soup based, clear, curry and tom yam. They also have fish head noodle and dry noodle. So, within minutes a steaming hot bowl of curry seafood noodles appears before you, its rich and aroma. Seafood such as squids, clams, mussels, fish slices (not fresh) and prawns fill the bowl to the brim that you can hardly see the noodles. A little unctuous, but there’s no denying that the creamy rich broth is flavorful and spicy too. If you want spicier, they provide chili paste in a container on every table, all you crazy people who loves to have their food overly spicy need not be worried.
Here’s the big bowl of Clear Soup Seafood Noodle. The ingredients are prawns (At least 3), mussels (Quite a number), clams (Quite a number), fishes (a few only, but found it not fresh at all), squids & some seaweed. Overall, it’s delightful and just oklar…
Last but not least, Tom Yam Seafood Noodle, which is also laden with a ridiculous amount of seafood, and find that the tom yam soup to be extremely thick and flavorful. It’s very spicy, for patrons that can’t take too spicy, can opt for clear broth.
Yu Ai also has a branch in SS2 Petaling Jaya, behind Restoran Kayu (Nasi Kandar). However, it is believe that there is not much business or turnover. Maybe the food’s not as good as the main branch.

(Nasi Lemak) Rock Café @ PJS11, Bandar Sunway

Sunday, April 19, 2009

It was about a month ago, someone has suggested that the Nasi Lemak in Rock Café is nice and decided to try it out. This Rock Café is located in Bandar Sunway which is quite near to Sunway University College (3-5 minutes walk from campus) and Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall (3-5 minutes drive). This is a huge 2 storey building where ground floor offers a variety of food and an internet café on the first floor. And this particular stall operated everyday from morning till late night.
The stall offers nasi lemak with a variety of choices like fried chicken, beef rendang, curry chicken, fries fish and many more. The first picture below features Nasi Lemak with dried red curry beef. The rice is not that fragrance, lack of coconut milk, and taste more like plain white rice. The beef texture is tender and spicy, but nothing special.
Next, Nasi Lemak with deep fried chicken and stir-fried vegetable (and fried egg if you refer to the last picture). As said earlier, the rice is not good and taste like normal white rice. The chicken is basically cooked in a normal deep fried, non marinated, plain piece of chicken. You can get it anywhere in Malaysia. On top of that, the stir-fried vegetable is quite oily. And refer to the next picture, you can find that the sambal is nothing unusual and very oily too.

Old Asia Café @ 1 Utama, Petaling Jaya

Saturday, April 18, 2009

Old Asia Café is located in 1 Utama, many patrons see it as one of those “you know lar” normal average café that offers Malaysian and western cuisines. Actually, this café has just renovated about a month ago and they set themselves some goals to bring the best cuisines to diners. And their well-skilled chefs prepare the best authentic dishes using the freshest ingredients and aromatic spices. So the verdicts are…..

No.1: Deep Fried Salt and Pepper Squid, it’s hot and crispy. By dipping with the sweet chili sauce, it is very scrumptious for side order.
No. 2: Dried Chicken Curry with Steamed Rice, this is their chef’s specialty dish, by blending old Asia’s secret recipe, spices, lemon grass and coconut milk which is delicious in fact and make patrons wanting more. The Chicken cooked in a thick curry and served fried omelet, vegetable and a couple of prawn crackers. It’s an all time best seller to them and worth trying…..
No. 3: Cantonese Kuey Teow, the chef cooked this thick white sauce together with chicken, squid, prawn and Kuey Teow. Taste wise is alright and gravy is actually good but the portion is abit small.
No. 4: ABC, it is also popularly known as air batu campur in Malay or ABC for short. The word "air batu", literally meaning "stone water" means ice and "campur" means mixed. Ais kacang or ice kacang is a dessert served in Malaysia and Singapore. It is sweet-tasting and is primarily ice served with sweet flavored syrup and jelly. So their ABC is refreshing and nice with red beans, sweet corn, grass jelly, cubes of agar agar and cendol.
No. 5: Soya Bean………..nothing much to explain about it….and normal…that’s all…
So the verdict, this café is newly renovated and ambiance is cozy and comfy. Food wise, some are good and some are bad, and for this normal café, their pricing is at the high side.
