POT OF YAM Smile Dec 03, 2015

Categories : Chinese | Restaurant | Seafood

The day we went to have dinner at Double Joy was when I was not feeling very well. So you can imagine my displeasure when we arrived and the place was quite full of people, plus the weather was kind of hot which agitated me even further. It is safe to say that by then I was just expecting the worst for dinner.The steamed ginger and scallion fish that we ordered was.... It was not the best nor was it terrible. The one thing that I was looking forward to is the sauce which was quite scarce and there wasn't really much ginger either so the flavour was only so-so.

 
As always, my family's favourite is the Claypot Pork Belly with Salted Fish. I remember eating plenty of this growing up so I already know what is good and what isn't. Although the one I had at Double Joy was not the best, I can say that they cook this dish much better than a whole lot of other restaurants. The sauce was nicely thick with a hint of spiciness from the dried chillies. 

 
And the best dish of the night was the stewed yam with pork ribs. Usually the yam that we get elsewhere is only tender but the one at Double Joy was so soft that it melted into the stew till it's almost like a thick soup. Plus the taste was amazing. For someone that was kind of sick this was very comforting and I couldn't stop drinking the sauce, dousing it all over my rice.

Sandwich Smile Nov 30, 2015

There have been quite a lot of hype about Le Pont - both negative and positive. I've also seen quite a lot of pretty pictures of the cafe on Instagram and also Facebook but have never got the chance to visit until recently. 

 
Based on recommendation, I ordered the Vegetarian Lasagne which I shared with my good friend. It has roasted vegetables in between each layer and topped with some capers. It was Italian in every bite and I totally did not notice the missing meat element from the dish too. 

Although I would prefer if my lasagne was hotter when it got to our table. But other than that this dish was pretty good for the rm25.90 price tag. 

 
My order of Rose Latte priced at Rm12.90. This was a first time for me because it's not something I see a lot on regular cafe menus and probably was not a popular order. But I think this might just be almost as good as my Caramel Latte order. There's a very subtle rose flavour and sweetness in the coffee which makes it feel a little more special, then I feel a little bit more classy drinking it. 

There are many more things on the menu that I've yet to try so I'd definitely be back.

Lunch Smile Nov 30, 2015

For a friend's birthday, we decided on splurging on some good Chinese good. The one place that caught our attention is Canton-i which we hadn't eaten at for years. I almost forgot how good the food there is although slightly pricey. 

 
To share we got a platter of Char Siew & Siew Yuk. These were not at all disappointing because the char siew was nicely sweet, the edges charred just nice and the meat was also very tender. Almost as if it immediately melted on your tongue. 

Whereas the Siew Yuk was different but equally good. The layer of skin was perfectly crunchy while having the right amount of salt while the meat was juicy. There's a nice layer of fat in between each layer of meat but it wasn't too much that I had to spit out most of it. This, I had a lot of. 

 
Just to counteract how guilty we felt for indulging in so much meat, we got the stir-fried lotus root with cashews. This was my favourite dish because I like the vegetable is one thing but then the way that Canton I does it just makes it so much better. If we were not already quite full then I would have suggested to order a second helping of this.

There is something very interesting about the way Marche operates. Unlike any other restaurant they do not provide you a menu of set dishes that you choose from to eat. But instead they have different sections of raw produce where you can pick what you want then have the chef there cook it to your liking.

 
I think I spent more time walking around the restaurant looking at all the produce than actually deciding what to eat. It felt almost as if I was grocery shopping at a rather small but upscale grocer. So at the end I just left the decision making up to my mom cause she's dined there several times before.

 
For sides, we ordered some sauteed button mushrooms with garlic and also sprouts sauteed the same way. These two were my favourite option a side dishes which was why we chose them, but it's not exactly the best I've eaten at a restaurant. Though I do like how the dishes were freshly prepared as we order them so neither of them were soggy.

 
This was the best dish of the night. It's Grilled Chicken thighs with buttered grilled corn and mash potatoes. The meat was succulent and nicely grilled without being overly dry. Plus it had an amazing flavour from the rub on the meat and I liked the skin because it was somewhat crispy. 

Would have this dish again when I do go back there.

Chicken & Waffles  Smile Nov 26, 2015

After a rather negative first experience I had eating at Nutmeg, I was a little hesitant to return. However a friend assured me that things would improve as they give this place quite a good review. So reluctantly I went back with a rather low expectation so at least I won't be too disappointed if things were to turn out as it did before.

Perhaps because it was not lunch time so there were not too many patrons eating there. We got a table relatively quick and our waiter was more attentive this time, giving us a menu each almost instantly. I knew then to not order their baked eggs even though I wanted to have some nice runny egg yolk.

Instead my friend recommended the Chicken & Waffles. Which neither are really my ideal brunch or lunch order. But with good faith I ordered it anyway and it is safe to say that my impression of Nutmeg has changed after having this dish.

 
Sitting on top of a really nice light waffle is a slice of cheese, perfectly fried chicken with some corn strewn over it and then a beautifully poached egg. Also there's a little drizzle of maple syrup to keep it in it's 'southern' style. This dish I really liked because the flavour of everything just goes so well together. 

And having the richness of the yolk from the poached egg drizzling all over the crisp waffle & chicken was just heaven in a bite. So this dish has become my number one dish to order when I do visit Nutmeg and now, I no longer feel a slight disdain for the place.

In fact I think I will go there almost every time I'm at Bangsar Village. Just for this dish.
