Afternoon Tea OK Oct 01, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Western variety | Restaurant | Steaks / Chops

 
It is officially an addiction now, towards afternoon tea. Everything about macarons, cakes, scones, aromatic English tea, and all the little pretty things that come with it.
Out of so many places, we (together with Agnes) have chosen T Forty Two for its pretty decor. You'll see!

 

 
My all time favourite, the peppermint tea.
As I was expecting the pretty floral chinaware tea set (as seen from photos of other bloggers), I couldn't help but to be disappointed with the less attractive tea pot we had.

 
High T42
Served all day for only RM49.90/2 pax.

 
House-curred Salmon and Egg Mayonnaise Finger Sandwiches

 
Freshly Bakes Scones with Thick Cream and Berry Preserves

 
Rose Macaron with Raspberry Jelly and Lychee Cream, RM12.90++

Overall it was mediocre for the set.

Namoo On The Park Cry Oct 01, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Korean | Café | Burgers / Sandwiches | Noodles

 
I believe many have heard of Namoo on the Park (full name would be Namoo Korean Dessert Cafe and Bistro on the Park), the first ever Korean Dessert Cafe in Malaysia, along with its famous Rice Burger.
Unfortunately, we are not here for that.

 
Cake of the Day (White Chocolate Marshmallow Cake) RM9.90
This is what my mischievous friends would described as the cake that goes to gym with super hard 6 packs. I should have added the word, "with no sweat".
Seriously hard and dry, two uncommon words in describing a cake.

 
Sweet Pumpkin Cake RM10.90
On the first impression, it looks like Kuih Ubi Kayu (translated directly as tapioca cake) to me.
It is basically mashed pumpkin puree, being mould into the form of solid cake.
And you can totally skip the part where the sugar was supposed to be added. Rather too healthy and not the type of cakes that we have all imagined. I bet it would be great as low calories cake (if it were to be marketed that way) for ladies on diet.

Both of these cakes have vanilla ice-cream on the side. Actually I wouldn't know how to name it, since it was not freezing cold and in half liquid form when it arrived on our table. Hey, it was not my photographing time that caused this. Having it together with the cake inside the mouth is like adding lubricant to smoothen it but nothing more.

We weren't satisfied with the two cakes above and decided to order one more cold dessert, hoping to have a happy ending upon leaving here.

 
The King's Bing Soo RM16.90
Shaved Ice with Rice Cakes, Red Beans, Strawberries, Kiwis, Bananas, Peanuts and Ice-cream Sprinkled with Multi-grain Powder
What's with the melted ice-cream? I just couldn't comprehend it.
The ratio of toppings and green tea shaved ice just doesn't tally: By the time we finished all the toppings, still lots of shaved ice left in the bowl. And again, this has no sign of sugar appearance.

Despite the very relaxing ambiance for a cup of coffee or a slice of cake while chilling out with friends, the cakes were not up to my expectation, or perhaps, it is just the Korean cake culture that this side of me could not comprehend. Shall go for the famous Rice Burger on next round and leave the cakes or any dessert with melted ice-cream behind.

We were disappointed to learn that the afternoon tea set were sold out at 4pm with less than one third of the seats occupied. Jason then suggested to try out their March promotion of Buy 3 for 2. The cakes were of soft textures and low sweetness level. Average with nothing to wow about.

Dinner OK Oct 05, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Chinese | Restaurant | Private Party

 
Very easy to spot this restaurant as it occupies one whole bungalow unit along Jalan Yap Kwan Seng.
However, parking unit is very limited, like 4-5 cars only.
So we parked at the parking space just behind, but being charged by the another restaurant that claimed the parking belong to them. Paid RM5.

 
Since we have 9 people, we demanded for private room.
(Minimum expenses is RM300)
These are all the decorations and furniture in our room.

 
Mango Kerabu -Large
We ordered one meat and one vegetarian, total RM67.80 for both.
Meat one definitely tasted better than the vegetarian one.
At first i thought only the ingredient inside is different, but no, the yam texture is different too.

 
Philippines Fried Eggplant -Small.
We ordered two as well, to cater for 9 people.
RM23.80 for both, RM11.90 each.
It is one of the must-try appetizer here.
More like eggplant with tempura/french fries style, then add a bit of sweet and spicy sauce.

 
Indonesian LaLa -Large.
Ordered 2 plates, total RM99.80 for both, RM49.90 each.
Yes, the lala is tasty, but not the big portion as large.
RM49.90 for this plate is expensive.
p.s: This is according to seasonal price, price not available in the menu.

 
Cencalok Prawn-Large.
Ordered 2 plates, RM177.80 for both, RM88.90 each.
Almost RM10 each prawn. Seriously???

 
Steam Seck Pan.
Ordered one, RM75.80.

 
1919 Homemade Tofu.
Ordered 2 plates, RM47.80 both, RM23.90 each.
This is another must try at 1919.
Tofu is so smooth and the vege besides not only for decoration, edible also.

Including rice for 8 people and tea, the bill came to us for RM662.85.
Bear in mind that the service charge of 5% alone costs us RM31.55.
That's an average of RM73.65 per person!
Such a rip-off!
We were all very shocked and never expected it to be such expensive.

Well, the service is good with friendly staff and cosy environment that feels like home.
Definitely not noisy, good place for gathering.
Feedback were asked and we said too salty for both visits.
If the environment is homey/old times oriented, please make the food less salty as mama's cooking as well?

Sunday Brunch Buffet OK Sep 30, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Japanese | Chinese | Western variety | Hotel Dining | Fine Dining


Thanks to the invitation from Thirty8 that both Agnes and I get to enjoy ourselves at their Sunday Brunch buffet, on 38th floor overlooking the captivating scenery of Kuala Lumpur.

 
Dining at Thirty8 with its 360 degrees unobstructed view of Kuala Lumpur was great, but watching how those chefs in their open kitchen preparing my customized order from fresh ingredients to piping hot dishes was even better. For one moment I felt like I was in the set of Iron Chef but with very friendly chefs. The dishes were then sent to my table without any indication of numbering/area. After all, there were limited tables at Thirty8 and it was all about getting personal.

 

 
There were 3 cuisines in general: Western, Chinese and Japanese.
Now, the best thing about being in buffet spread is to sample a bit of everything.

 
I adore beautiful texture of raw meat especially the balanced layers of fat and flesh. Still, Thirty8 Japanese chefs did not excel as these sashimi pieces were the best I can find from the selection. Keep the best on plate and let presentation do the talking.

 
A simple photo that shows how well-trained their staffs are: Realizing that the spoons were missing, the waiter brought us 2 spoons and placed in 2 different directions in case we were to share.

 
Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” sang by this little girl and the live band certainly was the best highlight of the day.

 

 
After meal dessert was inevitable. Though their macarons have improved in terms of texture from my previous unfavorable review on Thirty8 afternoon tea, I wish they would consider on lowering the sweetness level too.

 
Spending per head: Approximately RM190(午餐)
