[Update: 1/5/2016 – now have move to SS2)

Damansara Uptown is famous for a eatery place whereby we can hunt a few nice place to eat with a great mix. One of the latest addition outlet to the area is this Private Kitchen that I have been told that they started off with small little privite dining and its popularity had grown then they have to operate into a shop. Hence Private Kitchen was the name and now is available in bigger space  with both ground floor and first floor (more for private functions or family gathering).

Private Kitchen (1)

I have travel to Hong Kong a few times and yet find something similar here. Hong Kong food is definately must not miss. Well this new discovery,Private Kitchen is no ordinary shop like those restaurant in shopping mall as they are offering more authentic home cook Hong Kong Cuisine. The man behind the master creation is Chef Lam with experience of more than 20 years on him. Being in Malaysia for less than 18 months, he had creatively come out with many unique dish to impress.

Private Kitchen (2)

A cosy dining area with wooden chairs with many pictures that resemble on Hong Kong that certainly makes you think you are in Hong Kong Restaurant.

Private Kitchen (5)

Chicken wings are well deep fried to golden brown, crisps on all edges, with mild spicy and salty at the end. A great way to start off our dinner.

Private Kitchen (6)

Follow by this delicious Smoke Duck with Mango. Juicy and chewy slice of smoke duck which is aromatic and blend well with light sour sweet mango, perfect! – recommended

Private Kitchen (7)

I love my meal to start off with soup, and this double boil soup.

Private Kitchen (8)

Is just a great way to make our stomach warm. Boil along with pumpkin, pork and some other ingredient makes the soup sweet enough just as I like or its just me that love soup, any kind of soup is tasty to me. 🙂

Private Kitchen (9)

As we all had the introduction of the meal, then we head to the next meal section which is their set lunch menu that I am totally jealous with most of the office worker working around the area. Set lunch start off with as low as RM 7.90 and below are some of the items can be found.

Hong Kong style steamed chicken in sand ginger powder noodle soup @ RM 9.50

Private Kitchen (11)

Finely chop ginger slices is one of the extra condiments that you must not miss out to pair with the chicken. I finish it and asked for another additional. Not too spicy ginger taste which had tone down and suits many people I think. Well, if you are not a ginger person its worth for you to give it a try.

Private Kitchen (12)

This is no ordinary steam white chicken. Been perfectly marinated and bath with ginger serve along with hot soup noodle is one of the way to satisfy your lunch. Soft tender chicken meat, with slightly fragrant sauce that blends well with the noodle soup. If I drink the sauce it will be too salty as it is not meant to drink that way. I pour the gravy into the soup it made it extra flavorful.

Private Kitchen (10)

 noodle in the soup to pair with the chicken

Private Kitchen (13)

Noodles with mince meat & fried egg in tomato soup @ RM 7.50

Private Kitchen (14)

This is no ordinary instant noodle. Well, I often got scolded for ordering instant noodle at restaurant because of the pricing and its easy to cook. Sometimes I just crave for it and cant help it. This here is a must try. It look pretty ordinary or simple yet the hidden ingredient why I love it so much is they cook their own soup base with tomato and pork that makes it sweet enough (something like ‘Loh Shun Tong’) filled with mince meat and a simple sunny side up. Love the soup as its slightly sour tomato base and we just finish it within seconds as the instant noodle cook to springy. – highly recommended

Private Kitchen (16)

If you love to have some pork, then you can opt for this Typhoon shelter noodles with Pork Chop in Chili and Garlic Soup @ RM 15

Private Kitchen (15)

Comes with deep fried pork as the side dish and noodle, perfect for raining weather at this moment.

Private Kitchen (18)

Stir Fried Pork Ribs with Rice @ RM 12.90

Sweet and soup pork ribs might looks ordinary, but this is a well balance taste, mild sweet and more pineapple sour taste as they cook along where you can buy chunks of pinapple. Deep fried pork are in cubes and soft that pairs well with the rice.

Private Kitchen (20)

Fried Rice Portuguese Style with braised pork belly & Seafood @ RM 16 is filled with wok hei and too bad that they don have sambal or chili oil to pair with. If not it would make it more outstanding.

Private Kitchen (21)

Private Kitchen Stir Fried Prime Beef Fillet with Strawberry Pepper Sauce @ RM28 

Now lets head to more of its ala-carte menu. Begins with this is pretty unique dish with me, as strawberry is being used to cook along in this dish.Cook till the gravy is well coated onto the beef, tender soft and juicy with mild pepper spicy after taste makes it a great dish for me.

Private Kitchen (22)

Something creamy and palatable then go for this one of my favorite for the night, Deep Fried Pork Ribs with Special Salad Sauce @ RM32. Me and Ken just enjoying this dish by just munching it half a plate with it well coated salad sauce, sweet and slightly creamy that make it appetizing.

Private Kitchen (23)

Creating your taste bud dancing, Stir Fried Squids with vermicelli   in Special Chili Sauce is next to hunt for. YOu have to eat it pretty fast and if not, the vermicelli will soak the soup pretty instantly. Soup taste of it is pretty amazing lime, sour spicy and squid is just fresh, chewy bouncy as I like. RM 28

Private Kitchen (24)

oh oh, this dish is pretty Hong Kong style as Portuguese Style Baked Chicken Chop @ RM 18. Slightly can taste on powdery ginger curry taste which definitely relates back to HOng Kong dish as the chef hvae slightly change the ingredient as he mention the ingredient here is pretty good and the base of it is potato is amazing. -Recommended when you have your rice.

Some of you might find the curry slightly powdery but that is what Hong Kong curry taste like. 😉

Private Kitchen (25)

I know I am being called taufulou, yet this is another amazing by the chef. Crispy fried Tofu with Salt & Pepper @ RM 16

Private Kitchen (26)

The chef have made the toufu so delicately soft that nearly melts on your tongue  with crispy base outside with light after taste of pepper and the bite of it taste as soft as taufufa. Is the chef special mixture to make it outstanding. If you have beer on your side, this would be the best option!

Private Kitchen (27)

another dish that was gone within seconds as the aroma of the spicy garlic trail on our nose that make it so tempting. Private Kitchen Typhoon Shelter Prawns with Chili & Garlic @ seasonal price. Huge succulent prawn being deep fried along with chili and garlic make this dish simple and nice.

Private Kitchen (28)

Any vegetable with pork, I am up for it. Private Kitchen Sautéed Chinese Chives with Dried Shrimp and Shredded Dried Cuttlefish @ RM18 is a well balance vegetable that comes with me, and the best part is the small little salted fish is crispy and the saltiness that bite after it with the vegie and pork.. ooo so hard to resit!

Private Kitchen (29)

End with this healthy herbal jelly. Not many people will like it but its something unique to end off with. I am okay with it and I believe my parents would love it.

I must say, this is one of the most impressive Hong Kong Restaurant that I have come accross and you do not know where to dine, this is one of a highly recommended restaurant in my list for Hong Kong Cuisine.

Quite some time ago, when I read at the Star, when always comes to the food section it always attracts me and I will save a few copies and in my wanted list in food hunt~ So this is one of the place that interest me as the area had always been in my list of food hunting. When comes to Thai food, who could resist with a great write up article. I have kept the article quite some time till in the end decided to go and hunt for it.

Its located in the heart of the Entrepreneur park and I could not find the place with the printed address and was about to go to next restaurant till my friend ask me why not give it a call, and only realize that they newspaper print the address wrongly which the shop is located on the very next street. A large sign board like this is hard to be notice.

A kopitiam style concept which is nice and clean that divided into two area with air condition and without. You can just feel the heat if you were seated on the outside.

The shop is still new in the area and in the menu they are offering the usual Thai food variety.

In order to cater the lunch crowd which is usually limited with their lunch hours, so they have come out with a lunch menu which I think is quite reasonable as with the pricing comes with a 2 pieces of kuih and a drink with main course. What can you expect more?
They kuih looks nice and as the lady that serve us is very friendly explain to us what is made off and also its fresh but after one bite I had not continue on second bite as it is solid in texture and felt like its had been left overnight, not to my likings.
I have no idea why I am obsess with ‘Fried Pat Thai’. What I feel like its Char koey Teow in thai version, a bit pale in taste yet the noodle is abit strong and solid felt that its not well fried. RM7.50(Set Lunch Set) comparing with the price, I still prefer the one that I had in Pavillion Food court from the Thai Stall.
‘Fried Glass Noodle with Seafood’ as the glass noodles are a bit salty yet still taste not bad if they were to reduce the amount of salt or soy sauce. RM8.50(Set Lunch Set)

‘Green Curry Chicken’ is one of the best choice if you do not know what to order in Thai Food. When it got serve, all of us our face is like arrhhhhh.. why like dat eh, it was quite watery not with the usual curry which is a bit thicker, the taste of it is quite pale as we have tried better ones before. RM8.50(Set Lunch Set)

With us are being very tam chiak I kept looking in the menu see what we can add on order till I found this ‘Thai Otak-Otak’. It would have taste even better if its fried a bit dry but I just enjoy every bite of it.
‘Fried Belacan Rice’ something quite plain nothing to comment on. RM8.50 (Set Lunch Set)
‘Pandan Chicken’ is exactly what we are expecting, fragrance of the pandan leave and well marinated chicken that well fried and ‘Thai Fish Cake’ is something normal to me but my friend enjoy eating it. RM4.25 each.
In Thai food, it would be a lost if ‘Tom Yam Soup’ is not in the list but we were quite full and keen to try on and only request to the lady boss whether we can just get a small bowl of soup just to try on. Surprisingly the soup taste not bad, its a complimentary from the lady boss.

Desert is always in my hit list, and that day so nice that all of them wanted to try a few of it also. So we nearly order the whole range of it.

‘Water Chesnut’ is one of the signature in Thai desert something that I prefer, not too thick in ‘santan’ taste yet the ingrediant added on just combine the taste well. RM3.50

‘Thai Cendul’ looks like something new to me but it taste like bubur Cha cha. Quite thick in taste as what it is to be and its not in my list of favourtie as I don really like Bubur Cha cha. RM3.50
Among the other two, I felt that ‘Thai Sago’ is one of the best with the taste is nice, not so thick not too wattery and we ended up ta pau another 3 bowls for our friend. RM2.50
‘Mango Sticky Rice’ is also one of the signature desert that would always try on and it is fresh from the kitchen. The sticky rice is soft but if the mango were sweet enough that would be the kick of it. RM5.50

Previously my friend did told me about this place, never really got a chance to try out. Just so coincidence that happen to find my friend around Wangsa Maju area and I thought of this place for lunch.

The outlook of the shop which is kinda hard to get spotted cuz its located at the very corner.


Their plain menu with all black.

The set lunch menu to be choose from RM7.90 – RM15.90. After ordering my food, I decided to walk around to see its very own 4 section. What I have in my thought its someting like Quattro club. The restaurant occupied 2 story.

So start off from the top floor, which I came into this room. Interesting~ Definately suits me, but the section was closed, open more for dinner. This is their ‘Winter Room’

Pretty amazed of their interior, with this the sofa area sure very comfy.

The other section of the winter.

Walk out from winter room, this is ‘Autumm’ which is under the sun light. For smokers, I think this area sure will be a nice place to hang out, especially at night. This section also opens at night only.
Followed by the ground floor which lead by the spiral staircase to this ‘Summer’ area. The decoration of fan, lighting and the coconut tree sure makes the environments feels more summer.
This is the ‘Spring’ area which open up for lunch. Have a very nice interior which is pretty comfy and enjoying your lunch.
All set lunch comes with this set of appetizer. From very left is the
Jack fruit desert: not much taste at all, the santan is very diluted. The jack fruit is not sweet.
Cake: hopeless, its a bit hard, the chocolate top more on powdery taste.
Watermelon: okay lah~
The karipap: One word. Taste Geli!
Given a complimentary ‘Green Tea’
This is the extra side order which is ‘Vietnamese Cripsy Prawn Roll with Mango’. Mentioning with mango, the first bite, we could not detect any mango taste only can see a mango slice in there, the prawn is just average and the roll was friend to perfection with sesame seed around it. With the sauce in there, we feel that the taste does not really match as it covered up the mango taste. RM 8
My lunch order ‘Chicken and Cheeze Pasta’. Which noting much to comment on it. Just taste very normal. RM 9.90

The next order is ‘Chinese Style Roasted Chicken Rice’. Quite a large portion with the chicken they are giving consider alot. They sauce taste quite mild, just nice to go along with the chicken, the chicken meat is soft as were given breast part, to eat it with white rice perfectly goes along very well. RM 9.90

The next order is ‘Americian Club Sandwich’ RM14. With the price tag slap on the sandwich, sure it is not a disappointment. It is very nice, the veggie is fresh, the turkey ham is nice, fried egg and some chicken pieces and with the dressing the put on, its a sandwich you would be asking for.

 

Honestly, I would give them second chance for their food, most probably would try to dine at night to see what is the difference but of course I would say that this would be one of the best spot to hang out with friends especially the Winter and Autumm area. Dissapointed on food of that day but impress with the ambiance.
All the price are nett~
