Coming to year end, what we usually do is hunt for nice spot to eat and drink with friends and family. Recently came across this outlet located at Bangsar Shopping Center, that had instantly top in my list of recommendation with a great balance of scrumptious food, excellent service, great entertainment and of course, an environment to die for. WIP at bangsar is one of a many favourite hangout spot

The name itself already very catchy that evolve from “Work In Progress” and now mature to WIP is short for “Whipped Into Place”

Luscious cuisine featuring a hearty selection of Western, Asian and Northern Indian cuisine will more than satisfy the palate.

wip (3)

Its a huge restaurant that have a few sections in it with bar counter are uniquely design. If you look and feel, its more like a indoor tropic garden interior like.

wip (5)

For huge family they have a long table, that is sited slightly higher compare to other dining area and its a bit close up that give you privacy on it.

wip (6)

Cigar anyone?

Offer great selection of Mocktail, Cocktail and wine too.

wip (11)

A great dinner of course my accompanied by favorite alcohol, with Strongbow, Guinness and Paulaner in presence.

Find that North Indian cuisine are slightly different compare to the south, as its more usage of spice rather than spicy. Mutton Varuvalis one of the dish that first came out from appetizer menu. Chunky cubes of mutton being well marinated with spices, aromatic with bursting flavours. Not spicy at all.

wip (13)

Grilled Portobello Mushrooms – something simple is with this juicy mushroom and eat along with garden salad is just nice.

wip (14)

Never knew that Mushroom and Spinach Pizza @ RM 31 falls into appetizer catagory as its  not small ordinary pizza, its quite huge to feed for 2 person. Made fresh with paper thin crust that is crispy on the edge, with cheeze, mushroom and spinach.

wip (15)

I love The Chicken Chimichangas @ RM 22 were actually flour tortilla stuffed with chicken and cheese, deep fried and served with spicy tomato salsa. Well prepared, and love the condense ingredient that added in. To me, its like Curry Puff in Spanish style – Recommended~

wip (16)

Kakiage looks plain, but with just only first bite, you will never stop. Something simple and the magic is the sauce that will keep you going.

wip (19)

Every restaurant sure will have their special item. Well in WIP Espetadas are their signature item. Typical Portugese dish made of chunks of meat on skewers, seasoned and grilled. As right in the restaurant I was very curious as I saw many people order this dish with skewers all hanging on the metal pole. Presentation sure its eye catchy as already caught my attention from the beginning.

wip (18)

Special sauces are created to match the right food.

wip (20)

Lamb loin marinated with garlic herbs and balsamic vinegar, Sirloin chunks marinated with garlic and traditional herbs @ RM 92 , Chicken breast and chicken thigh chunks marinated with jerk spices, and Prawn, squid and fish marinated with olive oil, garlic and herbs @ RM 78

wip (21)

Roasted Caribbean Chicken. A whole chicken thigh, marinated with spices, oven roasted and served with potatoes, vegetables and roasted garlic sauce.

wip (22)

Branzino – Barramundi fillet pan fried and served with grilled vegetables, potato wedges and bisque sauce. Fish meat is soft, with a sign of freshness, and the sauce just make it more delicious.

wip (23)

WIP’s version of Sang Har Mein  is  using deep-fried wantan noodles and fresh “blue-legged” prawns cooked and shower in a thick eggy grav.

wip (24)

Another one of my favourite North Indian cuisine here is Chicken Makanwala marinated chicken breast cooked in hot and spicy gravy and served with chana masala (chickpea in spicy gravy), aloo methi (potatoes cooked with fenugreek leaves), salad, papadum (Indian crackers) and naan or briyani rice. I prefer this to be with Nan as its well prepared, as its soft and pair very well with the gravy. – Recommended~

wip (25)

The Tropical Fruit Pavlova is a meringue-based dessert topped with dragon fruit, orange, mango and passion fruit with coconut cream filling.

wip (26)

First bite on the crust of the pavlova, it instantly reminded me of kuih bangkit (Coconut Cookies) that I eat during Chinese New Year. Crust easily melts in my mouth.

wip (27)

Another creative invention by their great pastry chef is this Trio Creme Brulee (Vietnamese coffee, passionfruit and ginger).

No doubt with great ambiance, services and great food quality that they have that won them this award. Surely its one of the restaurant that I have been recommending my friend even before I am witting this.

Continuing my food hunt in Jakarta that my friend bring me along to a few nice places. One of it is this Paulaner Bräuhaus that I have heard my Indonesia friends talk about it alot last round and here am I, hunting for this place. It is located next to Grand Indonesia, right below Hotel Indonesia Kempinski.

Night landscape of the hotel is very nice with multi colored Led lighting around that  building that constantly changing colors. This are the main entrance to the restaurant.

For those of you who loves German food, this outlet certainly will impress you as it had emerge as Jakarta’s most popular German restaurant and micro-brewery for both visitors and locals.

beer houz (3)

As I step into the outlet, I am blown away as it looks like a classic mini beer factory and my friend told me that, it used to be a beer brewery that serve fresh beer to customers and due to some issue, it is no longer producing here.

beer houz (4)

Interior here are just so nice, that makes it a perfect place for friends and family to hang out.

beer houz (5)

Asparagus Soup @ RP65,000 is some how a bit tasteless.

beer houz (12)

Sausage Pork @ RP 90,000

beer houz (13)

Sausage pork is grill to perfection by maintaining its juiciness and its soft. Potato salad with pork ham if I am not mistaken that make it not too creamy and just to my liking.

beer houz (14)

In Indonesia, every one just love their food to be spicy and Heinz come out with Sambal Pedas.

beer houz (15)

Order the classic Paulaner and Mango flavour Paulaner beer. Girls would love the mango flavor beer as it have sweet after taste.

beer houz (17)

most of the staff here wore classic German clothing as I have seen in many of German restaurant.

beer houz (18)

This is another entrance to the restaurant or I would say the back way from the mall or hotel.

Overall, this place is certainly a great place to hang out and it is constantly full or pack with crowd over the weekend.

As recently I am in the mood of reading books back and went to MPH to kill some time while waiting for my friend, and guess what, I stumble upon one deal book. I guess being a foodie some times we hunt for deals, I cannot deny that I do hunt for deals online, and this book sure capture my interest. Worthy Book F&B Special Edition.

Worthy Book (1)

When I saw this book, I could not help but to flip thru see what they have to offer.

Worthy Book (2)

This little note on page is interesting, that recommends sample offer inside.

Worthy Book (3)

Next page really caught my full attention as they catagorise it, in malls on what outlet had participated in this book. I could see some of my favourite brands in there, Boost, Beer Factory, Subway, Hokkaido Ramen Santouka and many more. . .

Worthy Book (5)

Then I check out what these outlet have to offer. . . Boost is offering Buy 1 Original Size low fat Smoothie or Crush and Enjoy second one for only RM 1, Free Upsize, 20% on original size drink .. .

Worthy Book (6)

Now I can enjoy share tea at my work place as they have Buy 1 Free 1. . .

Worthy Book (9)

Best of all, when I see this as I hang out quite often at Beer Factory and since they now have this coupon, certaily I am getting this book already with 50% on food bill as their food are not bad. .  Those of you whom have not been to their outlet, ambiance of their outlet will look something like this,please ignore the Arthur’s Day celebration (click here)

Worthy Book (7)

Heard so much about Santouka and now I will have a reason to pay them a visit. . .

Worthy Book (8)

The book is also pretty interesting as all the participating outlets in there, do have a brief write up and what is their signature dish .. Cool . .

Ended up I bought this book with another 2 more books. . Unfair Advantage and Make Money Online by Blogging : Alan Tan . .

Find that its a pretty great deal on how I spend on my food and by paying RM29.90 I can see that I already save more than that, then only found out that their book also available at selected major bookstores (MPH, Popular, Times, Borders, Kinokuniya) and  myNEWS.com outlets in Klang Valley

You also can check out their FB page (www.facebook.com/worthybook) or website  www.worthybook.my. . Happy Hunting to all of you~

Arthur’s Day refers to a series of music events which were first organised in 2009 to celebrate the 250th anniversary of the Guinness brewing company by its owner Diageo plc.(source from Wikipedia).
