How many of you are a frequent diners at Northen Beach Cafe? If you do, I am pretty sure you guys know this little stall called La France tug in the middle of the coffee shop, that serve nice French Food. Well, over the time they have gain their reputation and now they have grown by moving to a new premises since last year to this heritage front corner unit behind Northam Hotel.

La France (1)

By operating on the corner unit of the junction, its pretty hard not to miss this beutified outlet with huge trees located right at the outlet. Ample parking around the area especially you can park opposite with RM2 per entry car park instead of taking risk to be park at the road side and got fine from the MPPP.

Actually this place is own by my best friend’s sister and we have decided to dine there over the weekend for lunch, since they had been serving pretty good food previously, most of their recepi is design by themselves and head more towards homecook style. Like the ambiance of the cafe, with a bit of contemporary style yet the overall cafe look and feel is there.

If you are a smoker, you can be seated outside too, but cause of our hot weather, I prefer to stay in. 😀

La France (4)

As you walked towards back, they have like a mini bar stool garden concept which is nice to be seated at night. Cozy place . .

La France (5)

To kick start with our late Brunch, so a coffee is a must for some of us and Cafe Latte being serve and by looking at the smooth froth, know that it would be a great coffee.

La France (6)

Iced Latte was being order next, as best to order less ice, if not it will dilute the taste of it

La France (7)

Love my simple cup of Ice Lemon tea, with strong flavour of tea and hint of sourish lemon at the end.

La France (8)

We do not know what we are ordering as we have ask my friend’s sister to serve us what is the best. 😀

I think this would be Albacore (French Croissant with Tuna, Cheeze and salad). Upon serving, I thought  – oh no~ why is my croissant is burnt on the top, thought it would not have made my day, but to my surprise it turns out to be super tasty with the style of it and the cheeze and tuna are perfectly match and I before I manage to cut into 3 pieces, it was instantly gone!

Jambon BeurreFrench Croissant with Ham, butter and Salad

Another toast delight that make our day with ham carefully friend just a bit and inserted in between the bread.

La France (9)

Next up is Croque Madame (Ham & Cheeze with Egg) in Ciabatta bread. Finely toasted which it is very simple yet just delicious.

La France (10)

The super star of the day is this  Pork Sausage in Cabiatta bread (don really know what is the actual name) that apparently only serve during dinner time! Pork sausage is just wonderfully friend and aroma ooze out from the sausage is just irresistible. – highly Recommended!

La France (12)

Aglio Olio with Extra Virgin Olive Oil @ RM9.00 is a very simple dish with lots of olive oil, olives and freshly cut tomato to cook along. Spegetthi is al dante and that Tatt whack half portion of it and left a bit for us to share! Pretty good too. .

Overall, this shop certainly serve pretty good toast if you are looking on healthy options. Other range like Speghetti as my thought, if they can cook a normal Aglio Olio tasty the rest should not be a problem!  Food price is pretty affordable which is not overly price.

Service wise I have no comment cuz its different for all of us and what I have been told and read thru other blogs, you might just received it uniquely. 🙂

Highly Recommended place~

After the first 4 restaurant hop, I am nearly Ko’ed with the food that was offered that even though not much on each restaurant, as heading to the 5th restaurant Vietnam Kitchen, I am already start to drag myself there even though Vietnamese food is also one of my favorite.

Star of the night is this Braised Pork in coconut Juice @ RM 19.90. Perfectly braised and soft on the fats, meat that makes me like the smooth texture of it.

Khadijah Ibrahim, Khadijah’s Kitchen sure do not ring a bell to me, after talked to her in person only realize that she is one of a famous singer in local and internationally arena with more than 31 years of experience that makes her as one of the leading singers of her generation, pioneer and innovator. From her popularity she had been named as a cultural ambassador for Malaysia and I believe you guys are very familiar with a song for Tourism Malaysia,  ‘Malaysia Truly Asia’.

Now besides being a singer, she loves to cook too, a food hunter and also a person whom is humble and willing to share and teach if you want to be a chef  and that creates out Khadijah’s Kitchen which is one of the hidden gem in Petaling Jaya area, thanks to Florence for introducing this place.

A simple and cozy place that offer more on homely ambience that she mention, most of the restaurant furniture are from her house. Her friends are quite shock when visited her house saying that, isn’t that is the same as your restaurant? As she spends most of her time in the restaurant, she had made it her second home that ensure it’s a place like home to provide for diners.

If you are looking for nice local Malay authentic food, there is no doubt that this would be one of the places to look for.

khati (5)

A place that resembles all her unique collection and award that she had got from the past to decorate it around her shop. If you would want to know, what she had sang, her shop would be the best place to see it.

Besides serving ala cart, she sure do reservation for special function, hosting big group of people and also catering. We do not know what to order and we order most of it with chef’s recommendation.

This shop had been in my wanted list food hunting for quite long time, usually which the time is not ngam that me and my friends ended up eat other choices. So this round, we were totally lost do not know what to eat then remember this shop. The place is not big but always quite pack.

A modern living room style cross that came across my mind on their interior, quite a cozy place but it’s a bit warm after a while.

Besides the ala cart menu, they do offer set menu also which is kinda worth to try out.
We order set meal ‘3 Cup Chicken Rice’. Thick in sauce that goes along well with the rice but there is nothing special to comment on. RM 14.90

‘Pork Chop Rice Set’ RM13.90 with traditional method of Taiwan, their rice will always pour on with mince meat and the gravy. Its flavorful with the rice and . . .
The pork chop, was well deep fried and I guess pork cannot deep fried too long that will make the prok meat abit solid and chewy. I still prefer the fried chicken on Shin Lin Taiwan street food snack.
Their ‘Milk Tea’ is good, thick and quite fragrance with the tea taste and the pearl is the type that I like, chewy and a bit solid like chewing gum. RM3.50

After a while in this shop, I remember that, there is another Taiwan Food which is quite good mention by my friend and I heard during my colleage time long long time ago was the one at 1-Stop. Wondering is the shop still there.
