The funny thing is that, when May Ling ask me to join her for dinner and told me the name of the restaurant I was like hah? again and again. .. as the restaurant name is called Ricetaurant which is located in Bangsar Village 2 which I cant even remember when is the last time that I came here.
The changes here is quite alot that now host quite a number of nice cafe’s and restaurant in this building.
Get to know one of the reason that why the restaurant is name like that because of Asian’s culture that most of us need to have rice on most of our meals.
Ricetaurant offers best of dishes around the region that makes it a bit fusion style.
I like the restaurant design in such a way that, it looks like a small little hidden cafe in some ally when I was in Melbourne, with tree trunk and very classic kitchen utensils to be party of the design.
The place is not big, but good enough to provide us a very comfy dining space, with paintings on the wall and open space kitchen right in the corner.
I like their menu, it reminds me when I was in primary school on maths homework exercise book. Price wise is pretty decent which is not too over price with their portion being served.
1) Apple, Elderflower and Lychee – just a perfect drink that blend till just perfect that I can taste the apple skin and very tiny small cubes of lychee – Recommended
2) Hainanese Tea
3) Pineapple, Orange and Mint
Chinese Olives & Seafood Fried Rice smells good, that already know enough ‘wok hei’. The rice were fried till perfect dry, very fragrant in taste and just find that the black pepper taste slightly over power the overall taste. If they reduce a bit, it would be perfect.
One of my favourite of the night is Teriyaki Chicken, which had been marinated very well, then cook along that the chicken is soft and every piece that I bite, the chicken is well coat with the sauce. Recommended
A plain simple fried rice, that lean towards very simple chinese style is Chicken and Long Bean Fried Rice. Very mild in taste yet fragrant in wok hei and if you eat along with some curry dishes, just good enough to be satisfied for me.
Another star of the night is Claypot Chicken, Yam and Dried Prawns in Nam Yue Sauce. Cook so well that the gravy is just thick enough, and some yam that just melts along with it, with cubes of chicken is soft and perfect to eat along with rice. – Recommended
Sweet and Sour Fish
If I am not mistaken this is Belacan Fried Chicken which is out of my expectation, fried crisply and by dipping with the sauce adds a bit kick but I still think eat it plain is much better and along with any of the fried rice.
If you love cuisine from east, then this is another must order dish – Ayam Percik with Nasi Ulam
The trick is, you must mix everything up Oxtail Asam Pedas, Sambal Belacan, Salted Egg, Ulam-ulam, Salted Fish and then eat along. Taste is pretty authentic with the ones I have tried before.
After we are so full, I still decide to try out their Black Sticky Rice with Coconut Milk. Sticky enough, as the black stick rice cook till its soft and its a suprise that they add in lychee that makes it natural sweet on fruits, as I have always like mine to mix along with coconut milk which makes it perfect. Not many places I get to enjoy this and certainly this is one of the recommended desert for me.
After the whole meal, we are just satisfied and surely we are going to return for more, as most of the dish here are quite authentic and nice.
