i always believed that to enjoy true Indian food, you need to go to an Indian restauranthowever the chef at tonka bean created a tasty lamb masala and a nice and warm chapati bread to go with itof course they had other common curry dishes to go with the chapati but using lamb for the masala was indeed a fusion twist of western influence and Indian cookingthis is because they usually go for mutton insteadthe masala was very fragrant but not too spicy, i suppose it is to cater to the foreign tourists who stay at the hotel 繼續閱讀

i used to think that chicken bakuteh is a far cry from the pork bakutehthere is always something different when braising pork ribs and herbal soup but tonka bean did something unexpected where the focused on preparing the best herbal broth to couter the fact that they only had chicken to cook withthis halal bakuteh also came with some golden string mushrooms and soft bean curdalthough my malay friends didn't quite fancy it because it was "bitter" 繼續閱讀

I had the opportunity to dine at Tonka Bean Cafe in Impiana Hotel KLCC last night, and it was a pleasant affair. I must say, for a preview buffet dinner, they did not hold back on the variety of dishes offered. We were spoilt for choice last night. Never one to turn down an offer to have some mouthwatering satays, it was the first dish I "attacked" that evening. Juicy enough, it did whet my appetite for more dishes. The satay was perfectly prepared, without being overburnt, and meat was not too tough. Taken with the peanut sauce, I went for a couple of rounds of satays. Another staple dish for almost every Ramadhan buffet would be the prized grilled lamb, shown in whole, and carved by the chef for our consumption. It does go well with the sauces and condiments, without having the heavy lamb aftertaste. It was good though, as I went for seconds at the "lamb" table. From the collage of photos above, you would have thought it was more than enough to fill our stomach. With all that good food, it was a wonder how my stomach could take in more of the cakes and desserts after that.Not being a fan of raw or seafood which were close to being raw and on ice, I skipped the fresh mussels on ice, prawns and crabs. I am more of a "fried and grilled food" type of person. It does look colourful and good though. My friend who tasted these, told me they were fresh enough, and any fresh seafood is good seafood. Ample desserts were available for those with a craving of sweet stuff, including 18 flavours of Baskin Robbins ice creams, gula sago melaka, cream caramel, and even a sweet chocolate fountain with condiments. Feasting on the desserts alone may just be enough to fill my whole stomach for the night, so approach with caution, and do not overeat. 繼續閱讀

International buffet lunch at Tonka Bean @ RM62++ isn't so bad after all. It's rather value for money with the variety of Western & Local Delights. Prawns and mussels are fresh and the bonus dessert is Baskin Robbins ice-cream! The downside is the hotel's car park, it's narrow and limited (average 5 bays per level). I'm considered an "OK" driver, yet I got stressed up parking here. So, be forewarned! 繼續閱讀

For BR lovers, this is where you can whack as much as BR as you like. The only thing about BR here is they did not label the ice cream properly. What I reckoned that I had in my bowl was strawberry cheesecake, praline and cream, and cookies and cream. All of them was very very sweet (and sinful!). The texture was slightly better than Wall's or Nestle, so are their variations. However the best ice cream is not them, that's for sure. 繼續閱讀
