Love their interior, which is pretty simple with red brick wall, high stool coffee tables around the area, sofa seating behind that makes it one of a attraction for younger crowds to hang out.

One of the place that I recently visit certainly make it a hidden gem around the area. It was a surprise to me that, in that area actually hid one nice restaurant, although I went to KLPAC for some local stage show a few times. Neither did I know there is actually that exist here. KLPAC is actually like a new dimension as you enter the guard house with tress flanking on both side that will lead you to a abandon house smack right in the middle on the narrow road. Just follow the flow you will reach to another end of the park is Samira by Asian Terrace.

SAmira (1)

Here we are today hunting for Thai Food that is located directly opposite KLPAC and you will see this red brick wall standing tall with bamboo tress hidden behind it.

SAmira (2)

Right here in the park, this is where the restaurant is hidden in that you actually sit in it, you will get to enjoy the view of the park and pond.

SAmira (3)

Getting into the restaurant is pretty tricky, as you will be entering a little maze and you will reach this wooden bridge with  a huge pond next to it.

SAmira (4)

As follow the flow of the wooden bridge, you will reach the main area of the restaurant.

SAmira (5)

The ambiance of the place is truely amazing, that you got transported back to another world. Found out that the previous owner runs Japanese restaurant and it was taken over that now serve Thai Cuisine.

SAmira (6)

Surely it is a nice place to have quiet and peaceful dinner with family and friends, or would make it a nice place for your special occasions.

SAmira (7)

or you can be seated outside chill on the wooden bench and table.

SAmira (8)

overlook the pond and park.

In Thai food range is hard for me not to order this few drinks – Ginger and Lemongrass, Lemongrass and Basil drink.

SAmira (11)

The first serving caught me by surprise, as it the first time I came accross Crispy Catfish with Mango Salad @ RM20, fried to perfection that it is very crispy as you bite you can still hear the cracking sound. Easily to be peel off , eat along with mango salad gives you another new bursting flavor. – Recommended!

SAmira (12)

Vietnamese Yam Salad is another new dish to me, that hardly come across a Thai restaurant serve such a unique entree dish. Yam was fried to crisp shower with some lime juice, fish sauce and sugar. Sourly is not just the taste as to make your taste bud to wake up up,  chilli padi is added in to make it sourly spicy.

SAmira (13)

Another one of my favourite entry as I just love sour dish to kick start with. Huge juicy prawns top along with pamelo, as you take one full bite of it, mouth had been burst with sourish juicy pamelo follow by spiciness at the end. Thai Pomelo Salad is something that you must not miss for as start.  RM 24 REcommended~

SAmira (14)

Tom Yam Goong is one of a thai soup that you must not miss too. If this soup is serve pippin hot then it would have been a perfect dish. serve along with seafood – prawns, squid and fish fillets. @ RM30

SAmira (15)

Grilled Norwegian Salmon With Basil Leaf is something that I truely enjoy, as I do not really love basil taste on my food, yet they are able to tone it done and blend well with the gravy giving it a perfect mix of balance with the thick sauce that cook with mix herb.

SAmira (16)

Southern Thai Masaman Curry With Beef @ RM 28 will be a perfect pair with white rice.  Gravy is thick yet slightly sweet in spicy curry, and rich with spices that cooked with tender beef slices is just delicious.

SAmira (17)

Traditional Thai Tom Kha with Chicken

SAmira (18)

SAmira (19)

Steamed Squid with Chilli and Lime Juice @ RM 28 – juicy squid brought to steam first then drench in sourish soup. I love the soup and chewy squid with my rice.

SAmira (20)

Grilled Fish Fillet in Banana Leaf (Otak-Otak) @ RM 32

SAmira (21)

When this dish was serve River Prawns with Lemongrass Sauce, we were like ‘wahhhhhh’ as it was set on the table it feels like the prawn got rape as it is tremendous huge prawn that was place on the table. I had 3 of this that making it particularly like I am having the whole plate already as prawns were very fresh, with roe and the lemongrass sauce @ RM35

SAmira (22)

Pineapple Fried Rice that smells very fragrant, cannot deny it is with pineapples, and spices akin to kunyit @ RM18

SAmira (23)

Do not ask me why, as I just love Phad Thai Noodle with Prawn and Egg @ RM16 and I would say its one of the recommended dish that make it well fried with ‘wok hei’ and mix all ingredient in, just comes to my liking.

SAmira (24)

Pineapple Lamb in Coconut Sauce is another new dish to me. Mild in coconut taste with slightly thick gravy yet hint of pinapple sour sweet taste is detected after that. I just place this whole bowl infront of me. – Recommended

SAmira (25)

Spicy Chicken With Chef’s Special Sauce @ RM 22. Chicken is well prepared with outer layer fried to crips with meat is soft. It is very    fragrant with spices in thick coconut milk. Another star for the night.

SAmira (26)

Pan Fried Banana with Ice Cream @ RM12

Mango Sticky Rice @ RM 18, that mango is fragrantly sweet and by dipping a bit of coconut gravy with sticky rice and eat along all in one bite gives you the satisfaction.

At the end of the meal, all of us were satisfied with the  amazing dish that this restaurant have to offer as I find the food price is decently price along on the quality that we had, surely we will return again for more. It will be another recommended Thai Restaurant in my list.

AS I was in Jakarta, I miss my friends there, and some of them arrange to meet at this new neighbourhood bar Hops & Malts as I Google it and some Indonesia bloggers do blog about this place as I quite worried that not many searchers will appear. Apparently this bar is also quite well known for their food as I did not try it out. Was here for a drink and chill with my friends here.

hops n malts (1)

Located in the new development around the area in Ruko Garden House, North Jakarta, smack with alot of F&B units and this is one of my friends, Ryard favorite hang out place. I also do observe that there are many young Indonesians hang out around here also.

hops n malts (2)

Love the ambiance of the bar which is simple with red brick wall design by playing R&B and house as background music at that time.

hops n malts (3)

hops n malts (4)

simple casual seating area. .Casual also they do have games such as Beer Pong, Beer Dart and Beer Roulette for you to play along with your friends.

hops n malts (5)

and outdoor too as it was pretty empty on weekdays and I was about to leave it was full . .

hops n malts (6)

Price of the food are pretty reasonable ..

hops n malts (7)

So try out their local beer Anker – A deep golden pilsner with creamy foaming head, strong flavor, delicious well balanced bitter taste and full body, something like Tiger crossover with Carlsberg. In my own opinion. Kekeke .. (forgot to tale the bottle)

They have another funny name for the beer is called Kuda Putih (White Horse) and my friend do not like it so did not order.

hops n malts (8)

This is one hell of a great fries with bacon and bbq sauce top with some cheeze dressing on top and goes perfectly well with our beers.

hops n malts (10)

Its a nice small little neigbourhood bar to pop by after work or hang out with friends. Had a great time there by meeting some my friends there. It was a busy day for me as non stop meeting friends there. 😀

One of the places that I often heard alot which is this Andes BYO Pork Burger that located in Aman Suria, and finally, me and my friend decided to pay a visit as actually we were on the way back from Penang and since its on the way then just drop by. There are alot of bloggers are talking about this place and makes me wonder how good is the pork burger actually.

Well, its not so hard to find it actually which its located the same row as Betty’s Midwest Kitchen/ Kayu Nasi Kandar as its on the other side of it only.

Andes (1)

Ample of parking space you can find around the area, as it is a bit more quiet on this side. Therefore you do not have to worry that much even if it rains, that its just a few steps away from the nearest shop lot.

Andes (2)

On Sunday night, this place is a bit quiet as there are a few tables occupied.

Andes (3)

Love the setting of the outlet as its a bit more towards old English interior with red brick wall, old wooden tables and chairs.

Andes (4)

Food price in Andes BYO Pork Burger seems to be very reasonable and I am so keen on their pork range available.

Andes (5)

So what we order is this Porky Pork Grill @ RM 17.90. Looks like it had been perfectly grill with their own marinated sauce and turns out to be juicy and taste perfectly good. My friend is enjoying every bite of his pork. By dipping with the gravy along is very individual preference, either you find it spoil the taste or makes it better. For me, I prefer just to dine it original . .:)

Andes (6)

Aussie Bacon Burger Wrap @ RM15.90 is their signature pork burger and when I was serve in front of me, I am a bit surprise to see the thick and round the patty is is being serve. Smells good as their signature burger being serve along with bacon, coleslaw and fries.

Andes (7)

The patty is good, that able to maintain its juiciness of it and after cutting it, I can just see the cheeze oozing out from the patty. Indeed it was home made by the size and well mince that I get to enjoy mouthful bites from it and the problem for me is a bit hard to grab hold and need to open my mouth to the widest to get full bite of it. 😀

Pretty good for a pork burger being serve in this area, to make another visit back to this place, I would not hesitate as the price are very reasonable. One of the set back that I read from other bloggers that the QC in here are not consistent. Thank god that I had this meal in pretty good taste!

If you are hunting for Pork Dishes around PJ area, certainly would be one of the shop to look out for.

It has been a while since I last visited Pavilion that I have less reason to be there now after I have moved. Traveling down town is just being lazy except there are friends from overseas that came over or any special occasions or events to attend. Well, we bought a discounted voucher from a website to try out this outlet Morganfield’s which is doing a discount of RM 25 voucher for RM15 which i think about 40% off which quite a value buy, so we decided to give it a try.

Morganfields (1)

Morganfields is located at the GSC Cinema wings or directly next to Overtime Pavilion. One of the reason we to get this voucher as Morganfield is Europeanized American casual diner specializing in pork ribs. Pork Ribs how can we miss that? Not many outlet that serve that even the famous Tony Roma’s also serve without pork (which is their signature too).

Morganfields (2)

Standing right outside the outlet and it was full house on Friday night, every one just hop onto bar and restaurant to get out from work as its heading weekend to chill with friends, thank god that I made my reservations which I am used to it already.

Morganfields (3)

They have outdoor area too especially for smokers.

Morganfields (4)

I love their interior design or would love anything which actually have simen wall/ interior base that create their own style of ambiance.

Morganfields (5)

Happy Hour certainly a good buy . .

Morganfields (6)

Love this bar dining section as the cool dim lighting just lit it perfectly.

Morganfields (7)

Interior with red brick wall, wooden planks, tables and chairs just blend the whole concept very well.

Morganfields (8)

Morganfields (9)

I was suprise that I was given what they so called VIP room. Its great to be in here as it is quieter compare to outside with full house and every table talking, just imagine that. One of the set back in this room is, its a bit hard to look for waiter / waitress as it is a bit hidden.

Morganfields (10)

Long hot day, so we ask the waitress what is nice for such weather and Cucumber Apple Mint Spirit was recommended! indeed it is a great drink with hint taste of cucumber that mint taste blends in very well and apple base at the in make it a perfect start. – REcommended~ @ RM 13.90

Morganfields (11)

Mango & Lime Lassi taste good just that one of the set back of it is the lime and its skin was blend along too that make it bitter with every sip. If without the skin in it, it would have taste perfect. RM 14.90

Morganfields (12)

 Smokehouse Club Salad @ 17.90

Morganfields (13)

As all of them wanted to start off with some thing light then salad was the first dish to arrive. Chicken meat breast was being the top of it and nothing special to shout about.

Morganfields (14)

Cheesy Fries is something similiar to Dog food(click here)  that we have tasted yet much better as this is Morganfield version. The whole plate was covered by cheeze and with some dippings to go along, certainly if beer was pair along with this, its a good combination and for the price of RM 14.90, its a good bargain with its portion.

Morganfields (15)

I didnt have this much for Tequila Spiked Chicken @ RM 32.90

Morganfields (16)

Ribs & RibsRM 65.90

Morganfields (17)

The signature for their outlet, pork ribs, being grill to soft and their bbq sauce is nice to pair along with its meat and we have opted for 2 sauce in here, BBQ sauce and Black Pepper sauce. On my preference, I just prefer this with their in house BBQ sauce. Black Pepper just taste weird with pork ribs.

Morganfields (18)

Lamb Chops was a bit overcook as its had turn to solid meat, burn the taste of the lamb taste and if it were to cook a bit medium well, would have been just fine. RM 49.90

Morganfields (19)

I find this Pork Chops is one of the best after the ribs with its texture of meat is soft and blend well with their special sauce. Something to look after for the price that they are offering. RM 29.90

Then funny thing for the night is, I wanted to order desert to end my meal, all of them give me many excuses to order later with:

– wait la, 2 of them went toilet

– eh, you got eat desert after dinner 1 meh? I thought you don like desert

– wait for me to finish my meal 1st la.. I was like huh? order first la.. “wait wait wait”

– can I have the menu please, “har u want to order d ah” can you please just wait for the rest to come back?

– Me- where they go so long eh..I want to order my desert now! ” others reply – okay, we help you order right after we came back from toilet!

Morganfields (20)

To my suprise, cakes were served along with them and it was a suprise bday arrangement from them. No wonder I cannot order my desert. . .

Morganfields (21)

Morganfields (22)

These were the crazy friends that celebrated with me on 2 weeks ago.. Thank you guys~ Hugsss!~!~!~

Morganfields (24)

As every one left, I took again a picture of this area. Just love it.

Morganfield is one of the outlet I would just drop by for a drink as I find the food so so only, and on the pricing wise, its a high to pay for meal like this..

I prefer Chicago Ribs House (click here) over this, in terms of price and food quality . .:D
