It was a nice afternoon taking a casual stroll at The Mines Shopping Mall. There have been quite a number of new additions to the shop lots here especially if F&B is of concerned
So here we are, dropping by Yum! Kopi for a quick grab of lunch.
The theme was white which reminded me of Gardens Lifestyle Café. But, the customer service was a huge let down. Not sure if it’s due to lack of staff or newly operating, we need to wait at least 30 mins for the food to be served. Mine was lucky as it was noodle but not so for my friend, hehe
He was already drooling at that time, hehe .. >.<
The menu itself was pretty intriguing. With Richard Chaplin to be seen
After browsing through, I ordered a bowl of Kimchi Korean Noodle. It was served hot but got cold very fast due to the air-conditioned surrounding. The noodle was springy, with savory soup, which I think is bit salty to my liking. The vegetable were crunchy with slices of crabstick and Abalone mushroom were soaked well in the soup. I actually was hoping to have a taste of authentic Kimchi soup, but that’s fine.
In between, I enjoyed my Kiwi Shake. It’s cooling, sourish and tad diluted. It would taste better if the Kiwi were added adequately. But I don’t actually able to taste any milky sensation as it was named “Shake”. Guess I just go along with it.
Then his Chicken Chop rice arrived in the end. But we were quite bewildered as isn’t chicken chop meant to be fried crispy chicken? Well, since we are rushing for some events, we just stay put with it. Lucky thing was the meat was tender and decently flavoured. Coming alongside was a piece of popiah and some cucumber to accompany the simple meal.
In a nutshell, I think there is still a lot more room for their improvement. For the time being, I just enjoyed the scenery of the nearby indoor lake, where you could catch a glimpse of cruise passing by occasionally.
