Good food is definitely hard to find, more ever those that you found and like, quality to maintain is another challenge. One place definately did not let us down so far is Sanook Bistro and Spots Bar never let us down so far, even we patron this place numerous time as normal customer, the consistantcy of food is there. I have blog about this place before last year (click here). This restaurant is actually a hidden restaurant right in Kelana Jaya yet overlook the lake.

As for football fans, its will be a great place to hang out too, with huge screen special beer promo and ample parking around the area. As for this year, the Godfather had decided its time to change its food menu and came out with interesting food range that never fail to impress us.

Sanook (1)

I am totally impress with their wine menu, as this is the first time I came across a restaurant that write the characteristic of the wine and description of drinking. A totally perfect menu for me that I always have difficulties in looking for my bottle of wine yet asking the waiter/waitress they would not know what to recommend.

Sanook (2)

As its still early, we decided to chill with their signature Margarita @ RM11. A glass that is not too strong, with perfectly blend ice filled with salt at the glass and a slice of lemon. I ended having 2 glass. 😀

Sanook (3)

Jeng Jeng JEng.. here is the new menu, a unique way of capturing attention with chef special and road sign being install as a main attention grabber icon in the menu. BY many unique names and description in the menu have the attraction to attack us by telling us everything is good. – Dangerous!

Sanook (4)

Gyro Lamb Pita @ RM18 – Sliced boneless marinated lamb leg with veggies & black olives, stuffed in fresh homemade pita bread packets, with special yoghurt mint mint sauce. It look rather simple like any other pita bread that I am having. With first bite, lamb being well marinated and burst with flavor as the taste is even better when you dip with their yogurt mint.

Sanook (5)

Spicy Mermaid Salad @ RM22

For greens lover, something light to go after with seafood then it is filled with Sauteed tiger prawns & calamari rings tossed with roasted capsicums, asparagus, cubed Japanese cucumbers & romaine lettuce in Sanook’s special house dressing.

Sanook (6)

I prefer Moogus Salad @ RM22

Grilled Sirloin Beef & Asparagus tossed with wild rocket salad topped with parmesan cheese and roasted red capsicums in house special dressings. As its just simple and I always prefer meat over seafood in salad. 😀

Sanook (7)

Kim Yang Lamb Cutlets @ RM52

Kim’s favorite lamb cutlets coated in Korean Spices, charbroiled to perfection & accompany with Korean Kimchi. As unique as the name could tell you, this lamb certainly is one of a recommended dish in the menu. Marinated to perfection and cook to well that the meat is tender and juicy. Sauce is totally unique and nearly bone licking good.

Sanook (8)

Masala Rib Eye @ RM42

Prime cuts of beef rib eye (250 gram) coated with chef’s special mix of garam masala, grilled to perfection and accompany by vegetable kebabs.

Sanook (9)

A mix for us sometimes would be good as it give you the option. Again the sauce is the main item not to be miss to dip.

Sanook (10)

Sotong Otak Otak @ RM30

Sanook (11)

Grilled whole squid (250 grams) stuffed with prawn otak otak (spicy prawn paste), served with sambal tumis , pilaf rice, garden greens, garnished with prawn crackers, almond & fried shallots

Sanook (12)

When I saw this in the menu, I told myself I must order this – Espresso ChickenRM25. Something its totally unique and first time I came across.

Tender chicken chop with espresso honey glazed and then roasted to perfection & served with pomelo salad, corn mojo, citrus bean salsa paired with tortilla chips. Sauce on the chicken is just amazing.

Sanook (14)

Teriyaki Char Siew @ RM22 – Tenderly broiled chicken, brushed with special sweet soy sauce marinate, garnished with piquant plum sauce & green onions served with herbal pilaf rice

Sanook (13)

Tom Yum Goong Pisek @ RM29 – Soup lover that love tomyum, its bad that you miss this soup as the owner himself is nearly half Thai and very particular of his soup that he needs to ensure that the soup stays authentic as possible whereby what he prefer. Spicy enough to make you go numb for a while, sourish enough to my level and a perfect companion with rice.

Sanook (15)

I always told myself, I am going to skip their pizza this round yet I always end up ordering. SPICY THAI MANGO TUNA PIZZA. They are well famous for their hand tossed thin crust pizza. @ RM 33

Sanook (16)

In this bar, their firewood pizza is also one of their signature item that must not miss, home made thin crust with generous filling is always a must with beer while watching football. This is totally new flavour, weird by its name but taste good in your mouth.

Sanook (17)

Some of you might not like the sesame seed like me as I do not prefer the taste yet the aroma of lamb help me pair off the taste well. Sesame Honey Lamb Pizza @ RM35

Sanook (18)

Marie’s Crepe Suzette @ RM17 – Freshly pan fried french crepes flavored with creamy fresh orange juice and citrus zest. Orange zest taste might be a bit strong especially taste of orange skin taste is very visible but when comes to desert its hard for me to say no. crepes are thick in a mouthful bite are just nice and orange pairs it well yet a scoop of ice cream would me it perfect!

Sanook (19)

Every one went crazy of this Henry’s mud cake @ RM11. Serve pippin hot, small portion enough to satisfy your desert crave or end your dinner in style that mud cake is moist with warm chocolate in it.

Sanook (20)

After reading the post, might sound that I have like praised nearly everything, well, this is the Sanook Bistro that we are expecting as it never fail us with their consistant food quality as I have mention and the chef behind all these food are just amazing to make every portion right and perfect. As far as I know their new menu is amazing.

Good for you to give it a try.

It has been quite a while since I last step into Pavilion and I have read a few blog post that new restaurant opened on the 6th floor which looks pretty cool with its concept. Then few days ago, whereby, I came down to meet up my friend which had been quite long time since I last met her. Then I suggested this place Market Hall and she said not a bad place.

[UPdated Jan 2012: No longer in operations]

market hall (1)

I like their restaurant concept, which is similar to one of my favorite seafood restaurant when I was in Melbourne in Crown Casino.

market hall (2)

Right at the entrance they do sell other items more on Italian range and also some bottle drinks ..

market hall (3)

I like their concept with its simple contemporary rustic style, that place wooden tables and chairs, using chalkboard on the wall to draw what is the specials of the day.

market hall (4)

market hall (5)

market hall (6)

A very huge open concept kitchen and you will be amaze to see how many chefs and assistant are in there.

market hall (7)

Their pasta are made fresh daily or would say, when we place order then only they will prepare it ..

market hall (8)

Not only that, you get to choose the seafood too . .

market hall (9)

in the chiller, the desert looks tempting too . .

market hall (10)

market hall (11)

In the menu, they do offer more on the Italian side, with Risotto, pasta, pizza and others. . .

market hall (12)

Then comes by this complementary bread stick with salsa sauce I guess and its nice, soft loaf that prepare fresh and warm then dip with the salsa sauce is just perfect. Eat it while its warm.

market hall (13)

Then in the menu found this dish to be very unique ‘Tagliatelle – Fresh Salmon tossed in Vodka, citrus zest, and mascarpone cream sauce @ RM 32.90. For the price of this and the amount of small chunks of salmon in there is very generous, which I can say that every bite will filled with salmon. I love the taste of it , which is a bit sourish of the olive, and the sauce just coat on the tagliatelle which is fresh made. I love it .. – Recommended~

market hall (14)

Now days, I am hook with anything that state with blue cheeze ..  although not many people can accept the taste but if it is done well, the taste is super nice. Then I try out Market Burger Spicy Mayo, caramelise Onion, Bleu Cheeze @ RM 22.90

When it was served, my friend she kept laughing cuz it looks like baby’s diapers been wrap up and ready to throw away . .I was like ‘Oi..that’s my food ler’ . . . .

market hall (15)

I love this burger how it was done compare to other restaurant by using fluffy buns, and this the made it more like focassia bread that been toast on both side till the top is crisp’s and the butter just soak into the bun welly. The beef patty is home made by judging its compact meat and was cook medium well to my liking. The juicy sauce combines well with the taste with the burger doesnt make it too dry and the bleu cheeze was stuff in the middle of the burger that very mild in taste and make the aroma stood up and combines well. I enjoy this burger very much . .- Recommended~

market hall (16)

Then only I realise that the side entrance I used to see alot people queing up on weekend is a bar behind the restaurant which is called the Bedroom, more on foreign style too which I rate a bit of opera decor on the ceiling with comfy leather sofa and huge dance space.. I will sure come and check it out one weekend. .

I am quite satisfied with the food quality that they served in Market Hall and the service is not bad too, or I guess it was just weekdays whereby only a few dining tables were occupied. Anyway, I will return to try out their desert as I was full on that night. If you are looking for nice ambiance to hang out with friends, its a Recommended place by me ..
