Kara – Conceptual French Cuisine, Kota Damansara (Sunway Giza Mall)

 

This contemporary French joint is all set with autumn-hued dining room and that neat and immaculate table arrangements. Lighting that creates a warm and intimate vibe that will heat up the heart before the stomach warms up for the main course, with a free flow of salad and appetizers at the salad bar. Indulge in Kara’s lunch offerings, including starter soda, one main of the day, and a spread of free flow salad and appetizers.

Beautifully served in champagne flutes, the Elderberry and Elderflower mix of soda cordials.

 

This salad bar is most lauded with bruschetta and slaws, and most delicious selection of cheese and olive. The hype surrounding its launch wasn’t prominent, but this polished tribute to the ultimate French contemporary is still charged with dynamite je ne sais quoi from affordable lunch serving through to romantic dinner. There is an entire service team making sure this contemporary restaurant living up to its reputation in both exceptional customer attention and culinary innovation. We are talking about set lunch buffet of RM 25+ and that is an absolute steal when it comes to value for money French cuisine.

Kara has tinkered little with the nostalgic transatlantic dishes, and we enjoyed the salad bar. But the pasta main course that followed was over-cooked: though well executed and teamed with a light pasta sauce, and cubes of salmon chunks seemed a match. Much better was the beef and chicken ratatouille, served in the portion perfect for lunch. Gravy for beef might be a little heavy but to have that with the bread is amazing. The tender beef helps balance it all but it needs more herbs. Some tweaks could be good but the portions are generous and price tags are small, it is worth every cent for quality like this, in particularly in relation to the ace ingredients and supremely innovative flavours.

Quiznos Sub at Jaya Shopping Center

Quiznos Sub Malaysia

 

Quiznos Sub first opened their doors in Malaysia years back and is still serving fresh and quality ingredients with all their recipes for bread, soup, and dressings developed in house so know that the flavour profile will be distinctly exclusive. And just like every other sandwich outlet, toasted sandwiches have long been practiced since it’s been heard off. Yet what sets them apart from many and mainly their main competitors is the fact that the whole sandwich is toasted and that the crunchy sensation is exquisitely memorable. Speaking of crunchy sensation, the bread on the pizza is nothing doughy or bread alike. Thin crust almost crackling crunchy was a stealer.

2.Quiznos Sub

 

This sandwich kiosk offers a comprehensive best for on the go or takeaway including sandwiches, pizzas, waffle fries and soups for any seeking the comforting warm and creamy start. But the astounding selection has never been any closer to our heart when they roll out their recent highlight – The Laksa Sub. That’s right you heard it right and you hear it first here on foodeverywhere. Who needs a bowl when you can have laksa in a sub? Big chucks of real chicken meat with succulent and juicy bites and the tang that’s tantalising, this one just will just leave you astoundingly anticipating their next season menu – the green curry. Look out for that as well.

 

4.Quiznos Sub

 

Quiznos Sub scores points for its smart packaging, and for the quality of their servings if not the quantity, though the fillings tuna evoke a sense of déjà vu. The bread though, invariably has a crispier outer crunch, tastes fresh. Mesquite chicken comes with the generous tiles of moist, tender chicken, cheddar cheese, tomato, onion, lettuce and ranch dressing. Choose between sub or pizza and pay RM 12.20 or RM 18.80 for either a 4 inch or a 8 inch sub and RM 13.10 for this as a pizza. Tuna sub here with a choice of wheat bread here has tuna, cheddar cheese, tomato, lettuce and red vinaigrette. And for all the meat monsters out there, fret not because there is the zesty steak to load up that protein in your meal. This one has got steak, mozzarella cheese, cheddar cheese, onion, mushroom, sweet honey mustard and zesty grille sauce.

Those or the Classic Italian with rosemary parmesan bread. This best seller comes with the chicken ham, beef salami, beef pepperoni, mozzarella cheese, tomato, onion, olive, lettuce and red vinaigrette. Pay about RM8.40 for a 4 inch and RM13.10 for a 8 inch for a sub or go with the pizza for RM 9.30.

Menya Miyabi Hokkaido Ramen @ Sunway Pyramid

 

From miso to tonkotsu made with that long-simmered pork bone broth, to some simple light soya sauce-based soup, we’d have no problem getting the ramen fix in all sorts of forms in the Klang Vallley. In the most authentic and traditional restaurants to some fusion contemporary cafes that are always trying something a bit different than the rest, it really isn’t challenging to grab that steaming bowl of Japanese noodle in broth. But as to exactly where the best ramen joints are at, is still a question with no definite answer. The newest in Sunway- the Menya Miyabi Hokkaido Ramen is one with decidedly classic looking ramen bowls with short pages of menu featuring a handful of ramen selections. We’ve slurped our way through some of the noodles on the menu and rounded up the conclusion if the place is a dupe .

 

First and foremost, the place is about ramen. Because menu is straight forward with pictures and quick description. The short and simple menu makes ordering easy, but I recommend the seasonal Burnt Garlic . I personally can’t get over the brined noodles thanks to the powerful broth. But the loaded topped garlic were unmistakeably garlicky, the whole experience is rich, flavour and might even leave some wanting more. Gyoza (six pieces for RM13, 10 pieces for RM19) wasn’t something memorable and elegantly presented. But that is the character seen in typical Japanese dumpling. They are the perfect nibble.

The classics topped with onion, bamboo, slices of tender meat and most importantly and interesting surprise of a good textured and perfectly cooked noodles- we hardly get good noodle texture without a gentle reminder to the chef, that some of us in Malaysia do like the real deal of springy from ramen noodles. While there are some with thicker and more flavourful broth, the rest of the bowls of the order didn’t quite make it to please or pass the musters for value and depth of flavour. The rest on the table seemed to unhappy with the rest of the ramen choices. All Assari Sio Ramen (RM23) , Tonkotsu ramen (RM 25) and Yaki- Miso Ramen( RM 25 ) were either lightly seasoned or

Harvest Ground @ Sunway Geo

 

Eggettes, otherwise also known as the egg waffle has always been an iconic Hong Kong street snack. One that is almost a quintessential and while it has always been classic and nostalgic, it has been really common in the recent years for innovative modern twists. Harvest Ground seemed to nailed their rendition with some of the most local falvours. I was instantly drawn to Jack the Baba HK Eggettes (RM 20) because of that interesting combo of jackfruit and ice cream. The generous scoop of fresh coconut ice cream was pretty amazing along the shredded jackfruit. Plus the choice of salted gula Melaka caramel sauce, was quite a fascinating match all together to the otherwise boring eggettes that could really use a little more of that crispy.

The egg waffle isn’t the only innovative modern twist and despite being unsure of the core selling point, everything else is pretty innovative. Gua bao here folds a tender strip of fried chicken and even though their menu did not exactly make things easy when it comes to decision making, I was told the Taiwanese Ru Rou Fan (braised pork belly over rice) was good.

Frame Thai @ Happy Mansion

Frame Thai @ Happy Mansion

 

Frame Thai @ Happy Mansion

 

The decor might be simple and even maybe borderline close to sloppy, but comfort dining is rest assured. Don’t expect contemporary and bold fusion but do prep yourself for some authentic Thai fire and superb cooking including stalwarts like tomyam and padthai. They have always been one of the biggest native crowd pullers and quite rightly so; the establishment imports Thai products and occasionally sells some really interesting street snack that is much loved by the Thai native community on top of the delicious cooking.

 

1.Frame Thai @ Happy Mansion

 

The menu is pared down to classics of Thai authentic flavours, all well prepared in both set and ala carte dishes for communal eating. Prices weren’t cheap thou but solo dinning is easy with their set serving that comes with rice and accompanied with a little bit of vegetables. I am happy it isn’t white rice (sometimes I like bluffing myself to some extent, haha. Don’t judge me). Fried Basil Leave with Pork (RM 10), Pork Leg with Rice (RM 10), as well as Noodle in Thickened Soup (RM 7) not only looks terrific but decently portioned as well. Add on the BBQ stuff. Grilled Pork Neck (RM 4) was delicious tender and juicy and best to go with some beer.

Fish is available at a standard pricing of plus-minus RM 40 and it’s highly doubted that it was a popular choice. They are not spotted on any tables amidst the crowded hungry customers. Soups and Tomyam made appearance at few tables so I tried and while comforting, it was but at the same time really warming you up when especially seated in the low ceiling and badly ventilated shoplot. Prepare boxes of quality tissue paper.

Pim’s & the Rama at Aman Suria Damansara

Pim’s &the Rama at Aman Suria Damansara

 

Talk about a pure satisfaction of tomyam and thai fare: Pim’s &the Rama at Aman Suria must be the one that comes into mind when it comes to mixes tongue-basting Thai soup in a Korean hot pot lookalike serving. Unlike conventional Thai restaurants, their first operating outlet in Klang was already renewed in such that the interior of the place catching on to trendy designs. This second outlet has wowed neighbourhood patrons with both it’s ingenuity, authenticity (think Thai staple with Chang Beers) and a good value of money. Oh did I mentioned the live acoustic music on Fridays and Saturdays?

 

As is the case in many of Klang Valley’s most authentic Thai restaurants, the cooking here is largely from the region of northern Thailand – including salad, accompanied by anything of pork. The food menu features plenty of well-known Thai dishes, with Green Curry Chicken (RM 28) alongside Thai Papaya Salad (RM 18), Pad Thai Noodles Prawn (RM 16.50) and juicy Pork dishes- Thai Grilled Pork Neck (RM 19), BBQ Pork Sticks – 3pcs (RM 12), Spicy Hot-Basil Leaf Minced Pork Rice with Fried Egg (RM 14.90) and Thai Pork Leg on Rice (RM 15.90).

You’ll also find a collection of southern Thai dishes such Thai Otah Otah Seafood (RM 25.50). Fish dishes are available as well. Fresh Siakiap Seamed with Chili & Lime Soup (RM 66) and Fresh Boneless Deepfried Siakiap Fish with Thai Sweet & Sour Sauce (RM 68). All very lovely to go with white rice.

The menu carries a long list of Thai dishes but something else is brimming with innovative confidence. Unashamedly fusing hotpot and Thai with the likes of fresh seafood and thick tomyam soup and lining the surface of the pot with crayfish, prawns, scallops, squids, mussels and some mushroom; and then topped with boiled egg with that runny and custardy yolk, Pim’s Super Seafood Tom Yum Pot (RM 88) reminds me of the Korean army hot pot. And, this one is sensational with icy cold beer.

If not this huge seafood tomyum pot? Then go for the popular pink soup. Yen Ta Fo (RM 39) represent hot pot with fishballs and tofu pieces and is another dish perfect for anyone who loves hot pot.

Lockers and loft at Damansara Kim (2018 New menu)

 

For a place with such good reputation for its food and cocktails, and entering celebrating its second anniversary, the Locker and Loft is refreshingly cosy: classy furniture, neat tableware, and a handsome bar counter lined with whiskies, ales, beers, cocktails and a good list of wine varietal. It has a hidden entrance but upon entering is a calm and cool place to eat and drink. Especially with their newest menu specially crafted for the cleaner taste profile. I was privileged to sample some of their newest cocktails and boy I love them less sweet and more refreshing than ever! That we are looking at bubbly remix of carbonated fresh coconut water with real coconut and the mild sweetness from the aromatic pandan leave especially when it gets close to your nose whilst bring it close to sip. K Rock! (RM 25)maybe lower and calorie but that really isn’t a bad thing. Because that means some more calorie quota for the CNY 2018 special- Babi Lu Mary (RM 40). One that has bakwa infused tequila, and some bold addition of with tomato juice, lemon juice, brown sugar, Lea & Perrins, Tobasco, salt, pepper & olive brine. Not forgetting the Blueberry milkshakes (RM 34)and The King (RM 38). The first really got me frenzy and while the later might be a crowd pleaser, durian really isn’t my thing. But dear durian fans, you are going to be drinking a controversial natural durian cocktail with vodka, Baileys, hazelnut liqueur, vanilla ice cream, almond syrup and cinnamon powder. (At this point, I realised that I’ve subconsciously held my breath as I described it.)

 

Of course there are some that I really enjoyed- all Tea Garden, LC 1 (RM 32) and Kopi Ice (RM 35) were all super easy to drink. I’ve always dislike eggwhite in cocktail but I do not dislike this, probably because of the floral hints from lavender. Despite looking ordinary, I am putting LC1 and Kopi ice as a strong contender for one of the tastiest cocktail for the night.

6.Lockers and loft at Damansara Kim (2018 New menu)

 

Their focus is on making both diners and drinkers feel happy and comfortable. Apart from their list of new cocktails, there’s new shot glasses made of ice and clients can now order the cocktail- catering service for a pop-up bar at private occasions. This one is real intriguing. But moving to the new food menu, it is a symphony of fantastic flavours we are all somewhat familiar with.

 

From delicious bites like Malacca Style Roti (RM 16), Salted Egg Prawn Cocktail (RM 23), and Varuval Quesadilla with Pineapple Chutney (RM 23), to succulent meat dishes like the Hainanese Chilli Chicken Wings (RM 25) and Peanut sauce Pork ribs (RM 26), you’ll never suffer regular pub grubs to accompany your alcohol. Malacca style roti really reminded me of Melaka roti john and that really is something I fancy. That quesadilla is one innovative complement to the pineapple chutney.

Kitchen also apparently excel in seafood preparations. Seabass Fish Fingers (RM 21) cooked with precision, came crunchy on the outside and breaded nicely without falling apart.

 

12.Lockers and loft at Damansara Kim (2018 New menu)

 

Mains are hearty, as well as glorious when you get pasta loaded with big flakes of sardine as well one with so big cuts of bacon bits. I like both the Chili Padi Sardine Bacon Pasta (RM27) and Pasta Masak Lemak with Bacon Bits (RM26) especially when the pasta are cooked perfect to my liking- al dente that is.

 

13.Lockers and loft at Damansara Kim (2018 New menu)

14.Lockers and loft at Damansara Kim (2018 New menu)

 

It’s a pleasure to pair and enjoy alcohol with quirky selection of food because the food at Locker and Loft is clearly presented by someone who cares about flavour. Not every dish was a knockout but where there were failings it was down to being over generous rather than unskilled; sardine and bacon maybe a little too much in ratio to the pasta resulting a slight overpowering of salty but most of the menu offers satisfying, moreish, somewhat complex dishes, the kind you always want from dining experience and so rarely get. Yup, I tried the Mini sliders consisting of 3 different patties and I enjoyed it very much.

 

15.Lockers and loft at Damansara Kim (2018 New menu)

 

Cempedak Goreng with Vanilla Ice Cream (RM16) wasn’t the greatest, but it’s something I would order again on my next visit. And yes, revisiting is most likely happening. I love cempedak still wrapping the seed and they are serving this seedless. But hey, it’s about how much you love fried cempedak and how this one is so perfectly pairing with the scoop of ice cream it combines to become a dessert that is absolutely delicious.

17.Lockers and loft at Damansara Kim (2018 New menu)

 

The Locker and Loft isn’t a place where tables brushed and every detail seen to by the serving crew but it is super chill place eat, drink and have plenty of fun enjoying everything they have to offer. Among its upcoming events are KL Rum Fiesta, GT Week, KL Amateur Bartender Challenge, The Shooter Week, Do The Classics and Sangria Sessions. There are also other regularly-scheduled events like Shake N Take (make your own cocktails every Thursday), BBQ Sunday, Sake Sundays and Dames Night. So make sure to follow their updates on their page. There is so much fun factor coming from the folks of this establishment.

Guess What Vietnamese restaurant @ Kota Damansara

 

Vietnamese chain and standalone restaurants are getting more and more popular in our local food scene with the latest and my most recent favourite, Guess What? at the Kota Damansara. No need to actually guess it, cause that’s the name of this Vietnamese restaurant. Don’t ask me. But there’s all the classic Vietnamese dishes (summer rolls, pho, rice) plus some Vietnamese tea and coffee. The menu is an edited-down list, each dish portrayed in an adjoining colour pic: a couple of starters, lots of substantial bowlfuls, some side dishes and my favourite sandwich of all time- banh mi. Service is laid-back yet welcoming, and the food quite superb. Not only is the food impressive and authentic, it’s inexpensive too. Whether you’re after Bánh mì or a steaming bowl of Pho, Guess What Vietnamese boast more than enough signature dishes to satisfy your cravings.

 

The herby Summer Rolls (RM 6.90) were a joy, together with the Fish Sauce Chicken Wing (RM 6.90) that is very highly recommended by the owner, for a good reason. Let the first bite speak for itself and at that point it’s only the eyes that’s talking cause the lips are sealed munching on that delicious bites of succulent chicken. Mango Papaya Pork Salad (RM 6.90) doesn’t quite capture the usually obsessed-with-raw papaya-me like how it usually does, but is a decent enough rendition with the addition of pork in it. I’ll go for the Deep-Fried Rolls (RM 6.90) instead.

Dry noodles were joy, and the beautifully flavoured pho with slices of beef, chicken and seafood was all it should be. All three of the Pork Chop Noodles (RM 9.90), Stir Fried Australian Beef (RM 12.90) , and the Lemongrass Chicken Vermicelli (RM 11.90) were packed with generous meat and a whole chop of pork, with tasty and fresh garnishes to enhance the flavours of each bite, every bowlful is a value for money. Pho with options of either rice noodle or egg noodle comes in beef and chicken variants, plus that seafood option packed with delicious homemade meat balls with satisfying biting size with deep and flavourful broth. Silky noodle some with a rendition of additional poached free-range egg is a luxury although it would be fine without it. Choose among Clams (RM 8.90), Handmade Beed Ball (RM 13.90), Pork (RM 8.90), Fish (RM 12.90), Beef Internal Organs (RM 12.90), Chicken (RM 8.90) using free range chicken and 1 poached egg, or even the Australian Beef Pho (RM 13.90 if asking for beef slice or RM 17.90 if asking for Ribeye Slices) for a meal of hearty comfort and satisfying pleasure.

The noodle bowls are not the only thing bulked out by massive, meaty toppings. Rice dishes definitely delivered with the same value for money with options like Beef stew rice (RM 15.50), Vietnamese Chicken or Pork Chop (RM 12.90), and Lemongrass Pork or Chicken (RM 9.90). The meats excel when it comes to depth of flavours and while there isn’t really any disappointment here, given the comfortable setting and fair pricing offered, I’ll let the absence of alcohol drinks slide.

French- Vietnamese sandwich is a big part of Vietnam’s street food culture but they are ubiquitous in Vietnamese café and restaurants outside Vietnam. I for one is a lame sucker for the crisp-shelled baguettes that makes beautiful crackling sounds. Even if they aren’t the principle offering, I am always ordering it just to have a bite of the crispy baguette. The baguettes here are outsourced and are filled with a choice of Beef, Pork, Chicken, or Tuna (all priced at RM 7.90 each), and topped with fresh vegetables and herbs. I love the generous coriander on it. The classic pork banh mi comes with a succulent cold cut of pork, earthy liver pâté, crunchy veg and fresh coriander, all in a light crispy baguette. It can be happiness in every single bite depending on how much you love banh mi but no matter how much I love it, I probably wouldn’t go for tuna.

Cooking Demonstration with In Style Hong Kong (Hong Kong Trade Development Council) by Hong Kong Celebrity, Luk Ho Miing

 

Being one of Asia’s most important financial hub, Hong Kong has always been known to be the most prominent business city in Asia. Characterized by the trade of business, lifestyle element and the high economic resilience in general, living standard in Hong Kong is growing rapidly in proportional to its economic growth- it is growing with a sundry of vibrant and unique lifestyle.

 

After a successful launch in Jakarta, Indonesia (2015) and Bangkok, Thailand (2016), the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) is hosting its third edition of In Style Hong Kong in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on 7 th and 8th of November 2017. Over the next few months, we will see a series of sales promotion highlighting the Hong Kong lifestyle elements such as design-led products, trendy fashion and culinary experiences with special offers from selected restaurants.

 

And with focus on promoting Hong Kong cuisine, HKTDC has invited famous Hong Kong food personality, Luk Ho Min to talk about the uniqueness canton cuisine has to offer. Partnering with the Canton-i, we are participating in a demonstration by Luk Ho Ming and Chef Yim Yu King from the outlet and the tasting menu is the Double boiled honey fig soup with sea whelk and pork lean meat, Slowed cooked dragon groupa fillet , and Double boiled coconut with natural peach resin soup and almond. These three dishes are available for 2 months starting October 1st, 2017.

Fig is already well known as a wonderful source of calcum and fibre, but this is my first time having them in soup. Together with sea whelk and the high protein pork lean meat, this one goes through the double-boiling process to release the taste of all ingredients and lock in the nutrients in the soup.

I might have taken slightly a longer time to photograph this but the silky smooth and soft texture of the dragon garoupa served steamed with bok choy is still lovely despite it being a little cold (we all know fish dishes normally gets a little fishy when it’s cold). Nonetheless, I acknowledge the benefit of this dish and I appreciate the beneficial ingredients that are also in the dish. Wolfberries are not only known to add and enhance the flavours of the dish, but are also rich in antioxidant and beta carotene to help fight aging and cancer.

Lastly, we had a dessert I would request for a second serving at anytime. Served inside a real coconut, this one with nourishing peach resin in it is supposedly rich in collagen that does not only resemble the bird’s nest when it comes to texture but is also containing almost the same content of the bird’s nest.

Solomen Cafe @ SS 2

 

From ramen bowls made with long simmer pot bone broth, simple soy sauce based soup, or miso to rice bowls with delicious pork slices; we can now get our Japanese comfort meal fix in Solomen Cafe at SS2. There is not only an assortment of steaming bowls of thin wheat noodles in broth, but a good fare of Japanese classics to complete a wholesome meal. This plain and humble looking cafe is absolutely a very good space and ambiance for leisure and comforting meal.

 

Starting with the delicious pieces of Gyoza (RM 1190), it is something that I’d highly recommend as add ons or appetisers. These parcels of pan fried dumpling are succulently wrapped tightly to reserve the juice and moist of the fillings so that every bite is rich and packed with flavours. And skillfully controlling the cooking time, those deep fried homemade marinated pork chop is another good dish for communal dining. Tonkatsu (RM 20.90) are crispy on the outside and tender delicious on the inside.

2.Solomen Café @ SS 2

 

Moving to their ramen bowls, both the Tonkotsu Ramen (RM 20.90) and Kimchi Ramen (RM 19.90) packs a flavoursome punch with the usual suspects of seaweed and eggs to be expected; as well as al dante bites of springy ramen noodle. The portions are amazing- not too gigantic yet great enough to satisfy ramen craving.

5.Solomen Café @ SS 2

 

Negi Miso Ramen (RM 20.90) also have those juicy pork but shredded to match the texture of fried leek on their ramen noodles simmered in delicious homemade miso soup.

 

6.Solomen Café @ SS 2

7.Solomen Café @ SS 2

 

Ramen isn’t the only thing you get because the menu also presents a couple of rice bowls and like their ramen bowls; these rice bowls are hearty and filling. Shiogayaki don (RM 21.50) was topped with stir fried sliced pork and onion in homemade ginger sauce while Hokkaido Buta Don (RM 22.90) had their rice topped with sliced pork on special homemade sweet sauce. Should the rice have a better texture, their rice bowls are close to perfect given the range of pricing they are tagged on. After all, mushy texture really won’t do Japanese rice grain any justice.

15.Tori Karaage  (RM 14.50)

 

Hoikoro (RM 16.90) stir fried sliced pork with vegetables in homemade miso paste would put a smile to pork lover with the layers of evenly distributed fats in between the layers of pork belly slices. But if you are avoiding those fats, may I recommend the gigantic Tori Karaage (RM 14.50). There are no fats in this one, only super thick coating of flour enveloping the chicken cuts to lock all moist and juice of the meat. I didn’t enjoy the thick- almost close to goey in between the supposedly-crunchy outer layer and the succulent tender boneless chicken meat; but majority would love the huge value-for-money pieces of chicken.

So because they are also a café, the beverage list conquers 2 pages of the menu. Cucumber Mojito Sparker (RM 10.90) was really refreshing and perfect as to beat those fiery weather out there and you get your caffeine fix too if are merely just chilling after the comforting meal. Latte (RM 9.90) fares well to go with their selection of cakes- both the Cempedak Lover (RM 13.90) and Tiramisu (RM 11.90) .

Fifth Palate @ Kota Damansara celebrates Malaysia Day with Nasi Lemak

Fifth Palate @ Kota Damansara

 

If there is one dish that represents Malaysia and if that particular dish must fit into any meal of the day (all breakfast, lunch and dinner); then it would inevitably be the nasi lemak for sure. And with the celebration of Merdeka and Malaysia day in August and September respectively, we are celebrating it with an assortment of nasi lemak renditions. We have the nasi lemak kukus, nasi lemak bungkus, and even nasi lemak with pork rendang. Fifth palate at Kota Damansara is celebrating patriotism with the national dish itself with the addition of Pork rendang on top of the usual suspects.

 

1.Fifth Palate @ Kota Damansara
2.Fifth Palate @ Kota Damansara

 

Their intereperation of this emblematic national dish is well executed here at the Fifth Palate. Not only did the sambal perfectly complementing the pandan infused rice, their pork rendang itself was absolutely delicious with aroma and thick flavours to accentuate the umaminess of the tender pieces of pork.

 

3.Fifth Palate @ Kota Damansara

 

Together with this dish is the Teh Tarik with Gula Melaka. This combination was cleverly done albeit a little weird but to go with their nasi lemak, is pleasantly acceptable.

 

4.Fifth Palate @ Kota Damansara

 

Finishing with their pandan flavoured eggette folded and filled with tasty coconut ice cream, is probably the best dessert to complete such satisfying meal. Sprinkled with some juicy corn kernels, this dessert can be a meal on its own if you are not sharing but hey, best things are shared and what’s a better to celebrate Malaysia if not over some sweet treats with your best bud?
