A new outlet that had just pop out in the neigbourhood of Damansara Kim. Tug in a quiet area but it had start to gain its fame thru online platform. We got to know that KomPassion one of a NON-Halal Thai food, then it makes us even more eager to try it out. Then decided to head to that outlet and do menu attack again..

kompassion (1)

kompassion (2)

I love the interior of the outlet which is creatively set up, that is very simple yet look elegant, with zink atap roof, wooden platform chairs on the side with pillows and lights below  . .

kompassion (3)

 Water paip s as the support frame of the lap. .

kompassion (4)

A group of us sitting there quietly browsing on the menu, then got slightly excited as they offer quite a range of food to choose from and many new items or signature to hunt for. Price are slightly more expensive . .

As usual, when we go in a group of food bloggers without any invites, the usual still we will be equip with our gear – lights and camera. As the food came, every one in the restaurant were very curious on what we are doing. Then only the owners drop by our table to introduce themselves as Desmond Wong and Tan Huat Jin (who are brothers-in-law). Even better to know that both of them actually  teamed up with Chef Nikom Uatthong to set up this restaurant.

How the name Kompassion came up is they know the chef have alot of passion in cooking hence by using his last 3 character of his name and combine with this and that is how the name being created.

kompassion (6)

We started off with starter. KomPassion Chicken Wings @ RM17.90 A very simple dish that well marinated with spices and I was saying, if order a beer would have been perfect.

kompassion (7)

Stir Fried Kai Lan @ RM15

kompassion (8)

 First pork dish and we are all excited, as The Paneang Curry Pork Loin came first..

kompassion (9)

A bit dissapointed on the other end as for the price of RM 35 its a rather small portion. Curry is thick with a hint of basil taste after that. Its not bad to go along with rice.

kompassion (11)

If you prefer something light and more soupy gravy, Green Curry Crispy Pork is the one that you should go after. Filled with basil leave taste, slightly creamy curry gravy and the pork cook along can still taste the crisp of the [email protected] RM35

kompassion (10)

Tom Yum Fried Rice with Grilled SeafoodRM18.90 , is cook in a healthy way with multi-grain brown rice is used and the serving came with grilled squid rings, a medium-sized prawn, crabsticks and salmon fillet. At the price I find this is very reasonable and rice being fried to fragrant and the sauce pairs very well, with seafood is fresh.

kompassion (15)

If you travel to Thai often, then many of us would not miss pork leg rice, as its the same in Kompassion Pork Leg Rice, when we saw this in the menu, its a must order. Pork meat is soft and juicy with gravy and the chili sauce that pair along is mild spicy and sourish end taste.  @ RM25.90

kompassion (13)

One of my favorite which is under KomPassion Special, we ordered the Double Cooked Pork Belly and Soft Shell Crabs with Cucumber Salad @ RM65. The pork skin is awesome, that its crispy on every bite and the meat is tender. Unami sauce that shower into it that makes the taste even better. Soft Shell crab on the other end fried to perfection till crisp and top with ebiko to make it even more bitefull feeling. – Recommended!

kompassion (14)

Tom Yum Fish @ RM45 with a spicy level of 2 (choose from 1-3, 3 being the spiciest). For those who cant really like spicy then would advise to go for level one. As the spiciness doesnt kicks in immediately, will suddenly shot up and I down a glass of water instantly. Its challenging yet I would not mind to go for level 3. 😀 Fish slices that cook along is soft and fresh. – recommended!

kompassion (16)

Tako @ RM10 is one of the signature in the outlet as its better for you to pre-order first when you are ordering your meal. Smooth coconut milk texture on the top and pandan base makes it hard to resist and and Ice Cream with Jackfruit and Red Ruby @ RM10, I find it pretty average..

Cheese cake are complimentary for us to try (bottom left)

In the end our bill came into RM 382.50 for 6 pax. Slightly more expensive than normal dining restaurant but its pretty satisfying with the offering in the restaurant. Surely will come back again as there are a few dishes that I am looking to back for.

Remark: do note that this is a Fusion Thai restaurant as the taste might not be at your expectation as the taste had been tweak.

If you are looking for some nice Thai food, surely this would be my another recommended restaurant.

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~

Roselle another refreshing drink . . .

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!

It have been long time since I heard about Food Foundry in section 17 on how good their mille crepes are. I have always wanted to try it out but always last minute there are cancellation or last minute thing that I gotta do. Even 2 weeks before coming here, there was actually a plan to come here for the deserts but got cancel again, I guess timing is on my side this round that I at last manage to step my foot into this place.

Food foundry (2)

As I reach the place, I find that Food Foundry actually hidden in the middle of Section 17 that is not really that visible if you drive pass along the road as it is operating on the ground floor. Even though it is quite hidden but it had not stopped many food or desert lover to hunt for this place.

Food foundry (3)

In Food Foundry, alot of thing you can miss but their Mille Crepe remain as one of the best desert to hunt for.

Food foundry (4)

The restaurant is divided into two sections, if you are looking for a sweet chat and comfortable place to have a good time, then you would want to be in this section that filled with rattan chair and pillows on it with orange dim light.

Food foundry (5)

What I know that this wall is handpainted byone of the artist. .   Pretty impressive as I thought they use spray to spray on it.

Food foundry (6)

Another section is what I felt more for dining purposes.

Food foundry (7)

A simple menu that they have. . .

Food foundry (14)

Iced Mocha

Food foundry (15)

‘Soup of the day – Onion Soup’ @ RM8

Food foundry (16)

‘Basket of Bread’ which is homemade by themselves that its best eaten when it is served. @ RM 2

Food foundry (17)

‘Soup of the day – Tomato cream soup’ turns out to be very aromatic, creamy that tomato taste is strong but dipping it with their homemade bread is something that goes along very well. RM 8

Food foundry (18)

I am a fan of greenery when it comes to food as ‘Foundry Caesar Salad’ @ RM 12 as I love mine with lettuce and those hard-boiled eggs with crouton, sprinkle with lots of cheese powder.

Food foundry (19)

If you prefer something light to start of with, another option would be ‘Green Salad’ @RM 8 fresh lettuce, carrot, cucumber and pepper with drizzles of olive oil.
