Howdy readers? =)
It's been a truly long time since I last did lifestyle blogging (eat+travel+shop). I kept ranting about my pathetic far from my beloved boyfriend situations. Thee-hee. To sum up my life recently, I passed my Ethics Exam at first attempt alhamdulillah, Ummi had 3 surgeries and is currently visiting a number of doctors, I am taking leave from my chambering to accompany her at home and for doctors' appointments. Therefore currently I am just focusing on Rakan IJN, freelance make-up service, Abaya Suraya online boutique, also a new addition is Courier Service especially for Hajj pilgrims from Makkah al-Mukarramah, Saudi Arabia to any destination in Malaysia. =) Will update that in the future insha Allah. Nana is also back from Geelong, Australia for her Summer holidays, to accompany Ummi, so I am definitely having fun having her around. Always. As for my chambering, I might continue another 4 months or start all over again. I am not sure on that yet, but i am thankful for my rezk in business alhamdulillah. Oh yes my boyfriend has performed his Hajj this year, so alhamdulillah I am very happy for him. =)
Alright I'll stop it right there about my life. Who cares really right? =D Now let's proceed with a Jom Makan! entry. I warn you, if I am in the mood to blog enough, there will be more ok? =)
Well recently, it was our monthly eat out with Ayah. Haha sometimes we have 2-3 meals per month ok it's not like only 12 times a year excluding Eid. =D Eating out with Ayah is always fun, I always look forward to having them. As for Deena, she's so looking forward to eating some sort of American Burger at Delicious, Dua Residency but somehow rather, Ayah had already chose the venue for us and apparently already set his mind of the dishes he liked to order. =)
The address : No.301, Jalan Bandar 11, Taman Melawati, 53100 Kuala Lumpur.
Tel: 03-4108 5897
The selections. Mainly they sell Asian especially local Chinese/Nyonya food, Western and Fusion.
It's cosy and clean. Great for hang outs with friends and family. It's open air atmosphere thus very convenient for you smokers to smoke a ciggie or two.
Ok obviously I got the first few pics from their website. =D Here's a bird's eye view of the whole place. The place is huge, and I noted some familiar faces from my school, SMK Taman Melawati.
Ayah sensed that Nana was not quite in the mood because she was hoping for Delicious. (Well who doesn't love Delicious right? =)) Ayah said "Here! This is your Delicious Nana!" Ouch hehe Nana made a face. =D Ayah trying to coax Nana, tried his best to convince that he knew the best dishes on the menu. He wanted to order the dumplings but it was finished. Ayah even made a funny response knowing that there was no dumpling. Oh Ayah. =D
Ok now let's start with the food review. Let's start with the drinks.
Honey Sour Plum Calamansi. RM 5.00
Tangy. Subtle sweetness. Balanced. Awesomely refreshing!
I am so going to order it again. =)
Nana ordered Oreo Milk Shake. RM 9.00
Creamy, crunchy and super yummy!
Yup since there was no way for us to try Ayah's favourite Fried Dumplings, we ordered Crispy Wanton instead. RM 10
The pastry was light and crispy, while the insides were so hot and so tender. Yum.
Ayah decided for us to eat plain rice with several Chinese dishes.
Claypot Beancurd Deluxe. RM 15
My most favourite dish of the night! It's so hot, and when the warm liquid goes down my throat, it felt so soothing. The texture of the egg tofu was very tender due to the hot gravy. I also like the vegetables in the soup.
Crispy Lemon Chicken. RM 16
Option is to choose Mango Sauce instead of Lemon Sauce.
Seafood Nyonya Squid. RM 20
Tasty. The sauce was the typical sauce simmering the Portuguese Grilled Fish. I tasted familiar because it reminded me the sauce strangely used on each and every dish at the Sekinchan Ikan Bakar. Weird experience there. Not to mention the shockingly over-priced menu there.
Sakura Butter Sauce Prawns (Market Price/ In our bill it was RM 33)
The most generous garnishing of fried, grated butter on a Butter Prawn dish I have ever tried in any restaurant. The butter was perfectly fried till it's so light, fluffy and crispy. The golden colour was a delight to the eyes and the size of the prawns were acceptable, 5-6 pieces of them in a plate. Too bad Ummi wasn't there with us because she was the one who was craving for this. Ayah wanted to order another set for us to take away for her, but we decided it's much better for her to enjoy them hot at the restaurant some other time insha Allah.
My plate. And I haven't eaten rice for a few days and now it's ruined. Guilty as charged. Oh it's a guilty pleasure anyways. =D
As for the dessert, I am not much of a sweet tooth but Ayah always orders dessert to complete every eat out. Ayah can't eat sweets much so mostly it's for Deena to enjoy it. =)
Banana Split. RM 8
A happy gal with her dessert. =)
Service Rate : Good service. The particular young waiter whom attended our table was very polite, fast and efficient. A good experience. Will definitely come again. =)
