Margaret’s Café e Nata Macao, Authentic Portuguese Egg Tart

Margaret’s Café e Nata Macao. Are they any good or better than Lord Stow’s ? Who wins the battle of Macao Portuguese Egg Tart?

 

1.Margaret's Café e Nata Macao, Authentic Portuguese Egg Tart

 

Macau egg tarts were initially and commonly considered a Portuguese import, with Lord Stow being one of the early names for egg when it comes to Macao Portuguese tart. Another famous egg tart seller, often linked in many posts as battle and showdown of both recipes as to who bakes the best Portuguese tart, is at the Margaret’s Cafe. Both Margaret and Stow are friendly competitors. Once married, the two used to operate Lord Stow’s Bakery. It is no surprise she will forever be Lord Stows ex wife whenever anyone go into intensive egg tart debate. This in my opinion doesn’t do Margaret much justice. Margaret’s Café e Nata should be best known for her own effort when it comes to Portuguese egg tart instead of her love life.
I personally enjoy Margaret’s because the brulee on Lord Stows were simply too overwhelming for my liking. The line though… That I did not enjoy. Fortunately, it was fast moving and having a good company to queue can be a good idea, except that would also make the line seemed endlessly long, which isn’t too great for everyone else. Oh well… I am sometimes selfish and I admit it. LOL!

Freshly baked at a very quick pace and flaky buttery delicious with a good ratio of custard and light crispy brulee on top, is a must when visiting Macao. There is always a queue and it is all part of the experience when travelling to Macao. This month is exceptionally gorgeous with light breeze and slight cooling temperature- best to stroll around and chill with these freshly baked bites of delicious sweet treats.

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.

Infused with love at Hard Rock Café

 

Infused with love at Hard Rock Café with their limited-edition menu and enjoy freshly prepared American classic favourites at an outstanding world class services with glam of rock and roll. With fine ingredients to create the best of authentic American style food, Hard Rock is always a lively venue offering plenty to keep entertained throughout and after the meal. Vintage posters and iconic music with variety of cocktails only means that there’s always something to relate to whenever visiting any of their branches. I’ve personally went to both Hard Rock Kuala Lumpur and Hard Rock Melaka within this duration of the availability of their limited-edition featured menu.

 

1.HardRock infused with love
Sizzling platters of Tequila and Lime Chicken Fajitas were impressive with chicken nicely cooked, lettuce freshly sliced, and very refreshing sour cream, avocado mashed, and cheese to accompany. The chicken marinated in tequila and lime, then grilled and seasoned with Tex Mex style spices, on a bed of grilled jalapenos and onions was delicious and generous when it comes to portion serving size.

4.HardRock infused with love
Crispy Chicken Sliders was probably the stealer and if anyone knows me well, would know that I am not into battered meat but this one got me eating quite a lot of it; as a matter of fact, I reordered the same at my second visit- it was that good! Beer battered crispy chicken on three toasted slider buns with melted Monterey Jack Cheese and pickled, served with seasoned French fries is probably one of their best featured item and I love the choice of Monterey Jack to be melted in between the sliders. And like the rest of their food serving, this one was generous as well.

Fritz Brasserie @ Wolo Hotel, Bukit Bintang

 

With a chic interior and the top- notch service, Fritz Brasserie sits elegantly at the ground lobby of Wolo Hotel in Bukit Bintang. Polished in every way possible, the Fritz Brasserie ‘s remarkable interior absolutely got me enamoured of owner Christian Bauer and Eddie Chew’s sense of style and concept. The same name behind the renowned and iconic names such as Mr. Chew’s Chino Latino and Troika – sky Dining, it’s gusty modern Euro- inspired offering pleases, and excites in an equal measure, right from the small plates to crackling artisan bread with luscious quality butter, and fries discovered better by mistakes to meticulous curating of desserts. Whether you’re a food novice or seasoned gourmand, there’s going to be something you’ll enjoy here at the Brasserie Fritz.

Steak (RM 95) here is showcasing the tender meat at its best: the cut blushing pink with juiciness at the prick of a fork. Fish and Chips (RM 75) is all about the crispy batter of Indian inspired flavours. The aromatic batter layering the plump juicy fillet carries Indian spices that could either be a work of a genius, or the opposite- depending on how much you can accept fish fillet with a hint of spice masking that sweet, juicy cod. It is inevitably impressive how well this tender-firm textured large flakes with high moisture is so well encased in that light airy batter casing. Serving generously with that signature fries, and those addictive dollop of raita, along some nicely cooked peas, this one is a memorable one. Mussels (RM 38) was radically different from anything we’ve ever tasted. This fresh black mussels in tarragon broth served with potatoes and choucroute is so tasty the flavour lingered in the mouth long enough for a smile. This if nothing else was worth another visit. Only, I’d wished for it to serve with some baguette perhaps.

Small plates are nearly stellar. Each dish, such as Soured Cucumber (RM 18)- Japanese cucumber and liquorice scented hummus with dill and Marinated Mushrooms (RM 38)-Mushrooms with lemon feta cheese, crushed peas and my favourite mint, is beautiful and thoughtfully rendered, packed with bold flavours. Also, on the table is another all-time favourite of mine- Roasted Cauliflower (RM 18). Herring Escabeche (RM 38) served with crème fraiche, onion, gherkin, celery, chives and chervil maybe pricey given the portion size, but it isn’t measurable with portion to begin with. Special mention should also go to the incredible bread and butter.

Desserts stayed loyal to the classics like Ice cream scoops (RM 16) and Crème caramel (RM 25). Ice creams are homemade from fresh milk, cream, and eggs and served with chantility cream and topping. Fritz Crème Caramel stacks cake and creamy caramel with marinated fresh berries- a combination to balance the luscious creamy and tangy sweet berry.

Brasserie Fritz has gained a fast reputation for great service and even better food and ambiance, with some saying that the chips served here might very well be one of the best in town. I wouldn’t agree one hundred percent but it seemed to magically have me wanting to have every occasion celebrated at this establishment.

 

 

The restaurant menu is slowly being fine-tuned so prices might vary from when I visited.

And what can never go wrong is the White Chocoffee when the blend of white coffee mix is put together with chocolate and peanut butter. While these already lightening the mood at the table, the Kaya-Nika Fusion beguiled me with their presentation before getting me hooked onto the delicious layers of sweet and creamy with traditional `kaya’, `gula melaka’, `pulut’ and red beans. This one is truly Malaysian and I must highlight that piece of toast piercing through creamy brim of the mason jar. It was ridiculously delicious eating the rich buttery toast with icy cold bites of actual lumps of pulut rice and red beans- this could be a dessert on its own.

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.

 

1.Quiznos Sub

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.

6.Quiznos Sub

 

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.

 

7.Quiznos Sub

Appreciate this healthier grab and go option with all the fine and premium ingredients and skip the frizzy drink if you can. This certainly is a cleaner meal at any time of the day.

Absolute Thai Street Food @ MIdvalley Megamall

 

Currently in Thailand when drafting this particular post just makes it worst to have to describe my experience with Absolute Thai street food in Midvalley megamall. If I must put it bluntly, then the simplest and most accurate description is probably localised. All our order, including the drink, of which one of it is sold as the Thai coconut (RM 7), totally fail to live up to their reputation. Absolute Thai has been serving street food with comfortable indoor seating, mostly inside malls, but the eatery still qualifies as street food given the array of most popular and renown Thai street dishes. One of which is the Thai Chicken Porridge (RM 11.90) and the Beef Noodle (RM 15.90). Which turns out would be a delight to most Malaysians. Seasoning and taste profile are closely tied to the local palate so for those eager to satisfy the Thai street food cravings, I’d recommend skipping this one.

 

1. absolute thai street  (2)
2. absolute thai street  (3)

 

Lemon Grass (RM 4.90) drink weirdly has a wedge of lime and this one totally reminded me of our local limau ais. Safest order is probably the omelette but take note it isn’t a sharing portion.

 

3. absolute thai street  (4)

 

In Thailand, even if you don’t know where to look, there’s still a high chance to stumble upon treasure. While Bangkok’s street food already claiming their throne to be legendary, with critics and bloggers from all over the world dropping reviews and praises, there is indeed something magical about their cuisine that seemed familiar to most of us in Malaysia but yet still never fails to create a little bit of surprises each time. I am hoping that there will be more Thai restaurants in Klang Valley that could give us the same surprises.
