This place is another gem of Puchong whereby it serves really good honey thick toast with Kapiti Ice Cream at reasonable price! The portion of the toast is pretty generous I would say, besides the buttered thick toast, two huge scoops of ice creams were served, accompanied by whipped cream as well. Such sinful the honey toast is, but sometimes, good things make you forget about the 'fat' word. mad

I love the desserts over here, guess what, there's a time where I'm really stressed bout my assignment, this is the place that feeds me good desserts and chase my doomed days away! There's another jasmine mille crepe cake, which is another favourite of mine, and my mom's too. The cake wasn't overly sweet yet, the fragrance of the jasmine flower lingers in your mouth, with a mild green tea end note, soothes your mood and your taste buds. I was so happy to know that it's from Vanilla Mille Crepe! Then I could buy the whole cake and stuff it in all by myself. lol

 
I've tried the Salmon Benedict as well, and I love how generous they are by giving perfectly poached eggs, not one but two! Thick toast is used instead of english muffins but it works fine too!

There goes the waffle! Although it is not the best I've tasted, but for me, it is still quite good.

The place provides good wi-fi connections (I'm serious!😁), no doubt it is one of my favorite spot for assignments! Moreover, there are plenty of plugs all over the place, even for the tables on the centre, the plugs can be found on the floor, it is really convenient for those who needs power supply for their gadgets to work on. The environment is really comfortable and peaceful. I guess the interior is quite spacious, it doesn't sound noisy even when everyone is talking. I'll keep visiting this place, no worries!

The restaurants serves delicious Chinese cuisine indeed! My family and I often go to the restaurants as the food was quite awesome. The dishes we we ordered were served hot, and it feels extremely fresh from the stove! I personally don't really eat Loh Mee, but in here, it's a tragedy not to taste their Loh Mee. I was quite skeptical about the taste, but my dad keep asking me to try, so ended I up I had 3 small bowls with the soup bottoms up! In fact, the appearance does not look like the usual thick and slimy Loh Mee (i'm sorry! 😂), in fact the soup's consistency is just right, and the flavour hit on the right point. 

Besides that, dad ordered Drunken Cockles as an appetizer, and guess what, in my opinion, cockles have never been so nice. The drunken cockles are "flooded" with chopped garlic to remove the fish smells of it and to give them a pleasant approach for those who are afraid of cockles. If you don't mind garlic, you'll love the cockles like I do. 

As for the lychee pork, I liked the taste a lot, since it's sweet and sour pork anyway, but I expect the outside be crispy and tender meat inside. As for the spinach, it was boom! The spinach was served in a rich and flavourful broth was allowing the veggies to soak up good amount of the essence! Yums! 

We did not order any rice to go with the dish, and the dishes are good by its own. Besides that, the Loh Mee is good enough to replace carbs in my opinion.  

There's only one thing I would comment is that the portions are quite small over here, as we went in by a group of 8 person and the waiter suggested a set menu but we had to ordered extra since the portion is insufficient. 😅 

Despite the small issue, we had a marvelous dining experience here, even though it may take us some time to wait for a table. Kudos!

Le Pollidor wasn't a very obvious place to be spot on in Bandar Puteri. It on the second floor, and indeed a hidden gem. 

The menu offered is quite comprehensive by having certain favourites of Asian and Western Cuisine, not forgetting to mention, they had huge varieties of beverages! 👍 I had a hard time to pick my dish to be honest. 😂 

I ordered Japanese Curry Rice with Breaded Deep Fried Chicken Cutlet and my mom ordered English Breakfast. As a hardcore Japanese Curry Rice fans, the dish was okay only in this place, but I still like it, I bet nothing can goes wrong with Japanese Curry! The English Breakfast was quite good, especially the sausages that my mom keep complementing it. As for the Hot Chocolate that I've ordered, it was averagely good, but sincerely nothing special about it. 

The environment is pretty comfortable as it is on the second floor, pretty much it feels like you are being isolated from the busy life of Bandar Puteri, and truly you can have your  quiet time with your loved ones or time alone over here. Indeed, me and my mom had a really good time spent with each other. 

I can't comment much on the service because we are the only customers on that weekday morning around 11am. But Im pretty sure it is doing quite well as it has survived in Bandar Puteri for quite some time.

The interior design of the place was marvelous, elegant and dreamy, grace with the latest favourite colour- Tiffany Blue. The cafe concept reminds me of Full House restaurant, but with turns blue instead of pink. 

The food was surprisingly good, and the prices were quite reasonable, since it's similar to those western restaurants in shopping malls. As a rare kind of themed restaurant in Puchong, the restaurant often crowded at night, and the parking is very limited too, so do pray hard before you come, if you intend to have dinner. 😂
My friends and I ordered Lemongrass Salmon Pasta, Terriyaki Carbonara, Deep Fried Calamari Rings and Classic Fish & Chips for sharing. A BIG PLUS POINT is that, a complementary soup of the day was beigg served with each main course! We has Spicy Tomato Soup that day, and it's perfect for me as well! 

One back slide of the dishes is the presentation of the plate. Chopped parsley was being sprinkle all over the plate for almost every dish, making it looks messy and amateur. 😅 I did suggest that they remove the chopped parsley as garnish, and the plate will be clean and more appetizing! 

Nonetheless, we encountered a bad experience on our visit, as we ordered pumpkin soup and waited for more than 30 minutes and turned out we had nothing as they say it was sold out after the long wait. I suppose there may be some miscommunication between the staffs? Nevertheless, the shall work on it to improve customers' satisfaction. 

All in all, I would say it gave a good kick start in Puchong and it has caught the attention of the people in this area, however, in my opinion, the food service has to be improved to avoid turn downs. All the best, and Kudos!

The Neighborhood Kinda Cafe Smile Jan 08, 2016

The rising number of hipster cafes in this area draws crowd to themselve. Often I prefer a quiet, decent and simple cafe with good internet connection and power supply for work or small hangouts with some close friends. 

Indeed, Photografee was pretty hidden as compared to other bakeries and cafes in this area, it might not serves the best food in town or with the best environment, but it's definitely my first choice for work, assignments or heart to heart talks. 

The environment is quite spacious, with a generous number of power sockets (no jokes!), and simply enlightened with beautiful photographs hung on the wall. There's also a few sofas for seating, allowing a more casual kind of occasions and meet ups. 

The waffles served was not the best that I have tasted, and was pretty packed and hard. Nonetheless, the ice cream and the strawberry sauce saved the date! There's one thing I think they should improve, is to use riper strawberries. 😂 

The beverages was okay, nothing special and fancy. It's good enough for those who just want to have cup of one or two. 

In conclusion, I would suggest the cafe not by hightlighting their food or beverages, but in overall. The menu offered was simple and not so expensive ; the environment and facilities provided are big plus points for me. It is definitely my place for doing work or maybe when I need to have my peace of mind.
