Categories : Western variety | Café | Desserts

Jam and Kaya resides in the the PJ Palms Sport Centre, though it's kinda hidden but the power of social medias were undeniable, drawing lots of people to this place. Pancakes are their signatures, fluffy and the condiments were simple generous enough to make you agree with it. I would really like to give compliments on their choice of strawberries.

 
Unlike certain cafes putting in strawberries for the sake of it, but Jam & Kaya indeed uses fresh, huge and red strawberries, reflecting how serious they prepare the dish, from the ingredients the pick. Regardless of Savoury or sweet, they have nailed it, their soft yet moist pancakes goes well simply with any condiments.

The cafe is also known for their signature hot chocolate with chocolate balls. The silky smooth and rich chocolate drink warms up the heart, bright up the day with its sweet and lovely chocolate aroma, with the chocolate balls giving a slight crunch to the drink, completing the overall sensation.

 
The whitish interior designs of the cafe simply made the environment bright and cheerful. With the minimal decorations of daisies and glass bottles, it enhances the happiness of eating 😁 Everything in the cafe looks ikea-ish, simple and clean.

 
Jam and Kaya is a day cafe whereby it closes at night. But it has not influence much the traffic of the customers, yet they will always find a time to pay a visit. Kudos!

Awesome New Hangout Spot Smile Jun 01, 2016   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Western variety | Café | Desserts | Bakery / Cake / Kuih

 
The new spots show wasn't that obvious in sight but the interior and the lighting of the shop were pretty attractive. The environment is extremely tranquil and comfortable, definitely can brighten up your day or gives you a peaceful mind.

 
The cakes and pies were supplied by the Humble Pie, one of my favourite place for desserts!

 
The spaghetti aglio olio served was seriously tasty, with generous amount of condiments such as mushrooms and veggies. It was an complete hearty meal.
With  the  choice  of  onion  rings,  wedges  or  French  fries. (Smaller Eater Portion)

Nonetheless, the fried chicken was rather less than my expectation as the fried chicken doesn't taste fresh, seems that it fried the chicken for few times or they over fried the chicken. It tasted and smells a bit rancid.

 
The cakes I had was the honeycomb coffee cake. Besides having a little too much buttercream, the cake was quite cool.

Anyhow, the menu takes smaller eaters into consideration, where they divide all food into regular portion and lite or small eater portion. I did thought that it's a smart move to reduce food wastage.

Superb Food! Smile Jun 01, 2016

This place is a BOMB! I recalled I once passed by this restaurant in USA, but i didnt know that there's a branch in Malaysia! Without knowing much but the fact the it serve seafood and yes lobster, we dined in the place for a birthday celebration.
The space of the outlet in the Curve was comfortably small, with great service and friendly staffs. We ordered several dishes for sharing as we could try more, not forgetting to order some mocktails to go with the meal!

 
Before our food is being served, there were some cheddar baybiscuits being served. No kidding, but the complementary biscuits tasted delicious! I am so looking forward to the food they serve.

 
First the appetizers, the Lobster Bisque was so so so good, and I really mean it! It's was rich, dense and creamy, the flavour robustly overwhelms your mouth, I finished everything, not leaving behind it's very last drop.  
And then, here comes the mussles in marina sauce. This is good especially when you soak all the sauces or broth with the toasted bread given, heavenly matched! 

 

 
Moreover, the serve real good, al dente pasta with extra rich sauces, in extremely large portion to made satisfy your appetite! I personally liked the Alfredo as it gives a a really smoth and creamy texture that, makes you crave for more!

 

 
The fish and chips were impressive enough that the batter skin was very thin, and the flesh of the fish was thick and firm. Not forgetting the platter serving lobsters and other seafood such as scallops and shrimps that tasted fresh and juicy, tasted perfect even without any sauces!

 

 
I don't see a reason why they categorize pizza as appetizer, but the pizza was up to standard despite they dont specialize in making pizza, but the pull ed off I would say! 

 
My overall experience in Red Lobster was superb! Not forgetting that on Saturday night, there are live bands just outside the shop, that's makes me feel like i was once in New Orleans!

Affordable Fine Dining! Smile Jun 01, 2016

Categories : Western variety | Restaurant | Pizza/Pasta | Burgers / Sandwiches

We heard from a friend that this restaurants serves fine-dining food at an affordable price. We booked the place for a pre-graduation dinner, and we had a really good night. The place was quiet and calm, not forgetting the staffs are extremely attentive and friendly. When we are having our dinner, the moment they hear the sound of cutleries drops on the floor, immediately they will come to you and change the cutleries for you. The owner also ushered us into the restaurant all the way from the parking lot.

I admire the food over here a lot, with crime brûlée being my favourite! The crime brûlée was silky smooth with the tinge of smoky flavour, and a very mild floral note. Complexity is what makes the dessert memorable. 

 
Besides that, the vanilla panacotta was so jiggly good, the macerated berries or coulis is seriously lovely. What is so kind about the restaurant? We actually ordered churros but it was sold out, thus they gave us a replace it with a complementary very Panna Cota! 

 
The charcoal grilled steaks no doubtly were tender and delicious too, every juicy bites unleashes the goodness of the meat, and complement by the seriously-very-very delicious crispy skin roasted potatoes! 

 
We too ordered the Pira Charcoal Grilled Avocado & Calamari as the appetizer, the small bites were delicate yet tasty, oh and yes, the squid ink purée was really amazing! smile
All in all we had marvellous memories and dining experience with us, thanks to the Copper team!

 
Scrumptious Pira Oven Mushroom, is like a hot pot with wholesome ingredients; roasted procini, assorted mushrooms, truffle oil, roasted cheease, onion puree, cracked eggs all cooked together like a stew, but a drier version, serves with a toast. All is good!

 

 
Here's something special called the Pink & Black, it the combination of freshly brewed Espresso, rose, milk and grass jelly. Sounds weird? But it tasted so fine, no kidding.

Delicious Japanese Fusion! Smile May 31, 2016   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Japanese | Western variety | Café | Pizza/Pasta | Sweets/Snack

 
The Japanese-inspired restaurant serves marvellous fusion food, and each of them has attracted me a lot by just looking at the name of the items. 

 
The food was marvellous! We ordered the Teriyaki Salada and a Oyako Teishoku for sharing, and the portion was indeed satisfying and we are really full. No forgetting the passion fruit smoothie was delicious and refreshing! Indeed, the drinks wasn't overly sweetened, perfect to quench your thirst and cool down the heat on a scorching day.

 
The staffs provides prompt service and the serving of food was fast! The teriyaki salad that we had was seriously good, served cold and fresh. Not forgetting to mention that the chicken pieces are huge too, it's worth the price. 

 
As for the Oyako teishoku, The baked mushroom pie and omelette was good too, just that the leek was slightly overpowering. I am personally okay with it, but perhaps not everyone likes the distinctive taste of leek. They also ask for suggestions and comments verbally or through survey, and they take it seriously. As a consumer, I personally has an favour on restaurants that care for their customers.

 
In overall, I would say that this dining place was better than my expectation and the varieties of food they serve were excellent as well!
