Browsing

I have always been a fan of Vietnamese food, as I had alot nice one when I was at oversea. Well, still nothing to be compared. When this shop open few years back, I have heard much good feedback from my ex colleague when they went to dine there with clients. One of the set back was, its a bit pricey to dine there then timing was right a while ago as they were doing promo and decided to stop by with a group of friends.

For a Vietnamese Food, they really offer quite a unique range of food compare to any other restaurant that I have been too.

Of course when you are in this shop, Prawn Spring Roll (6pcs) @ RM 18 its pretty classic item to order or one of the dish that represent Vietnamese food. Roll up pretty well with the sauce to dip along and prawn is fresh~

sao nam (9)

I am not sure I put this name on the correct picture or not as Banana Flower & Chicken @ RM 20 its one of a good appetizer to start off with. It was gone within seconds as it has a bit of sourish, and sweet end. Just perfect.

I read many review, this is one of a dish that highly recommended by many people and same goes to me. Mangosteen & Prawn Salad @ RM 32 is a very unique salad that I have come across, they used Mangosteen to pair it as we thought it was weird at first then, the flavour is sour with their special sauce make it very good to go along with the prawn.

Vietnamese Pancake @ RM 26

When this is serve, it looks and smells good but taste differently. Part of it is with the dressing that they have in there. I do not really like it but some of my friends love it.

Rice Rolls Lotus Leaf (6pcs) @ RM 21

If you are having rice and Lamb Curry @ Rm 34 is a must order. Thick in curry gravy with lamb cubes are cook till soft. A bit sweet and spicy and those of you do not like the taste of lamb do not order this. Its quite strong even you can smell it, according to my friend.

sao nam (17)

Chicken Lemongrass @ RM 20 is another dish that you can consider even ordering. The soup that cook along is fragrant with mild lemongrass taste that I would rate it like Steam Chinese Wine chicken but this is Vietnamese version.

Imperial Lotus Leaf Rice @ RM 18

Sweet Potato Leaves @ RM 12

Friend Tofu @ RM 22

In Vietnamaese Food, of course we must try out their Hue Beef Noodle Soup @ RM 18, soup is sweet with thin noodle and few beef slices to go along. Pretty good though.

No doubht that this place do provide nice Vietnamese Food, and if you are willing to pay a bit more, you can even consider this place for dining.

The Apartment is not like a new development or project that is upcoming. A place that had been establish with very homey concept as The Apartment was named. Understand that many of us dine outside after work very often as the outlet aims to provids a casual, comforting home dining experience set in a modern apartment-like restaurant setting that is located at The Curve shopping mall.

With their cozy environment, I used to hang out here with my friend for drinks on weekends as they play great soft music as background music and perfect place to chill and chat.

the apt (4)

It is exactly like a house as this is one of the few sections I love to be seated around as I called it living room area or bed room style located one floor up.

the apt (5)

A simple DJ deck area to spin off some music. I guess we can be DJ ourselves too, by doing a mixture at home, plug and play here. :p

the apt (3)

For special functions or private events, definitely wound be one of the place to consider as can easily cater quite a crowd with their huge dining space.

Okay, lets start off with what The Apartment have to offer and for the month of April, the have something special inhouse as currently they are doing The Chef Series that feature special serving of deep sea delicacies themed menu Unlimited Flavours Of The Ocean. They will be featuring in 2 parts as for Part 1 which is in April and Part 2 is on May.

the apt (12)

A flavorful Oyster Shot that prepare in shot glass to give you the after pleasure. I was told not to use spoon to dig up instead I just have to eat the whole thing like drinking a shot. Being a good follower I just follow and I am amaze on how the taste blend in. A bit sweet and sour from the mango, oyster is fresh that the after taste is fresh and refreshing. I do not mind to have another 2-3 more shots. 😀  RM11.90

the apt (15)

Next is the steak which is prepare medium well that comes to my liking and for the first time I see a steak pair with prawns mixture with  au jus, garlic, chillies, honey glazed tiger prawns & mash. Surf ‘n’ Turf is one of the latest addition to the menu.

the apt (16)

Almond Crusted Cod is one of my favourite for the night. Cod is very soft and fresh, with a gentle cut in between it just open instantly. Almond was fried crispy and brings the aroma out of it, cook along with some clams make it sweet and a bit sourish taste of tomato that makes the taste perfectly good! I just drink the soup base till dry. The cod nevertheless was being attack and gone within seconds. – Highly Recommended!

the apt (17)

Red Snapper @ RM39.90

the apt (18)

Pan fried red snapper with couscous and lemon butter reduction is one of the dish that suits most of our local people here as one of the reason I am saying this is most of our locals love to have their meals with rice. Therefore a simple pan fried fresh snapper and pair along with flavorful rice is good~

the apt (19)

Stuffed Squid is heading towards more of our local taste, a bit spicy on the end yet juicy squid being stuff with risotto to make it solid and goes along with the gravy. Every one just loves it. @ RM25.90

the apt (13)

Another dish that I like is Jamie’s Duck Pasta that brings you Fettuccine with shredded slow-roasted duck and tomato red wine ragout, topped with toasted pine nuts. Not many places that can cook this well especially with duck involve, and they have make it good with slices of duck meat cook along with red wine and the tomato taste just did not over power everything. Highly Recommended!

the apt (20)

Looking for something not so complicated then go for Tossed Pasta Plain is very simple yet flavourful as some of them just like their portion with lots of chili flakes. Too much will make your tongue numb yet its nice. 😀

the apt (21)

Prawn Capellini with tiger prawns, lemon zest, olive oil and marjoram.

the apt (22)

English Lamb Curry is another new addition to the menu. They are being generous with the lamb as its quite a big piece for a portion like that, well marinated and cook till the lamb is soft and serve along with special briyani, egg, carrot raita (yoghurt) and cashew nuts.  – Recommended!

the apt (23)

After great main dish on the table and it always have to get something sweet as ending and comes with Creme Brulee that is perfectly burn on the top to make a fine thin crips while your spoon poke upon it gives you a crack sound after that. Top with a scoop of ice cream and pretty good enough to make the sweet [email protected] RM13.90

the apt (24)

A desert that reflect much on our local delicacies as this  Buah Melaka Desert serve  palm sugar dumpling served and coconut ice cream @ RM12.90

the apt (25)

Premium Dark Chocolate Cake & Banana Pecan Cake 

the apt (26)

It used to be a hype on Red Velvet Cake and I have only tried once so far and this would consider the second time. I love this piece more with the texture of the cake is nice and the two cheeze layer is being put with the right amount that does not give you the feel of too much and strawberry dressing pairs it well. – recommneded

the apt (27)

For those who loves chocolate alot then you would not want to miss this Chocolate Mousse

the apt (28)

When this Baked Chocolate Pudding, every one’s eye was set on it and had make this desert super star for the night with its oozing chocolate syrup flow out along and with a scoop of ice cream being serve along and it is being freshly done from the oven and serve piping hot as upon this order you would have to wait for 15-20 minutes to get it. It was all worth the wait. I certainly would love to have this desert all by myself! not going to share! – Highly Recommended! 

the apt (29)

For those of you prefer something not that sweet then this slice definately suits your taste bud as Homemade Carrot Cake served with mascarpone cream and carrot syrup.

I have never been to Bali before, but its a must visit place for me very soon after I have got tempted by alot of my friends on their great scenery and especially on the food! Well, since I have not been there, and right now we can get a taste of how actually Balinese food taste like The UMA. I have actually dine at this restaurant a few times that I just did not blog about it and I guess I should now ..

uma (1)

The Uma which located in Kota Damansara next to the Strand that offers a great selection of Balinese food and best of all, its a shop that offers NON-HALAL food. The chef cum owner had work in Indonesia previously and decided to come back to spread Balinese cuisine to locals.

uma (2)

The whole interior was decorated to get as much feel of Balinese as possible, with wooden chairs and tables, and if you prefer something different for dining, you can head upstairs.

uma (3)

uma (4)

With simple decoration that put on the wall of scenery of paddy field, makes you feel like as if you are dining next to it and up in here, they do not have chairs, that offer to sit on the floor style with pillows for your comfort.

uma (6)

They are reasonably price with the portion they serve, you better opted to share and it is advice that for a pax of 3 person you order 2 person’s meal. If not enough then only decided to order extra.

uma (7)

Jus Apokat (Indonesian Avocado Juice) behind – RM 9
Fresh avocado & milk drizzled with chocolates! I am not a Avacado fan but its good, not too thick nor milky

Es Timun Segar (Fresh Cucumber, Lime and Mint juice) – RM 7
Refreshing cucumber mix with lime and some mint. Its the best drink among all, really a thirst quencher. I do not mind to have another 3 more glass. Highly recommended~

As to end on our meal, we ordered  Es Campur Bali RM9  a bowl of Bali’s ABC brimmed with cendol, jackfruit, cincau & coconut. Something which is not too sweet and I love the jackfruit, if they add in more would be even more nice.

Our dinner was rather simple to order as in sets, a set that can just satisfy us that serve most of the authentic balinese food under one big plate. A meal with reasonable price and companion certainly we will be back for more again!
