One of the food outlet which is no stranger to all of us, I remembered that during my college times, when we were pretty broke yet still want to enjoy nice food, we head to hunt their set lunch at RM14.90 comes with a drink at Subang Parade outlet, and we just sit there talk and watch soccer and for the first outlet that they open in Penang, my dad brought me to dine there, he give me a prank yet also a surprise on my birthday few years back, that I have to stand on the table holding chili sauce bottle to sing as song to a full house crowd~ Gowd!, that was one of a great experience that I kept with the restaurant.

tgi_welcome02

It was not until recently that got invited to go to TGI Fridays to try out one of their new menu, Tex-Mex, the range of Mexican food. When comes the word Mexican, the next word that pop out from my mind is Tacos, with fine fried bacon baked with cheese. Yummm~

TGI

The bar area in the restaurant also used to be one of my favorite hang out spot after work, as I often came by for their happy hour after work when I was in Penang as it was on the way back home. I love their dim light ambiance filled with a few big LCD to watch ESPN or some news to chill and nice Bartender to talk with. It was chill and relaxing after hard day of work.

TGI (2)

TGI (3)

It always depends on mood to hunt for which beer but to me, it was always draft, never on bottles~ The clear and fresh taste of it. Stout is one of my favorite choice but Heineken is the most preferred choice as its cooling and refreshing.

TGI (4)

With the branch at Hartamas Shopping Complex, the team had put in a lot of effort to decorate the place and the team had won several times as the best dress restaurant, cannot deny that now the whole restaurant had Mexican ambiance that decorated with donkey, cactus and famous Mexican hat.

The day could not be any better that we got served with ‘Gold Mango Margarita’ ripe mango pureed with tart lime juice and shaken with tequila and triple sec. The mango smell is so tempting but they were never stingy with their tequila shots, it was strong, a few sips already make me haywire abit, but it was good. RM17.90. The good news is, they also served ‘Virgin Gold Mango Margarita’ whcih is without alcohol.

I have always been to and pass by Hartamas, neither did I know that actually on the other side, hidden another shopping mall which is Hartamas Shopping Complex which I find it kinda cool place to be for the very first time, whole stretch of shop rows that filled with F&B, some souvenir shops, and many others and if add on some exclusive brand there, it would be like street shopping at Melbourne.

The reason me being there was, Richard had extended an invitation to us to dine at Bagel n Coffee Station in that area.

I have no idea what Bagel is about until the boss explain to us that it is actually another type of bread that shape into ring(very similar like donut) boil in water then baked that will comes out with chewy, dense and crispy. There are a few types of it and the classic one are with poppy and sesame seeds. It is popular at Europe, US but not in Malaysia.

Bagel n Coffee

Bagel n Coffee (2)

A simple classic western café decoration and appearance that make it simple and nice which you can always see in the movie as I like this kind of designs.

Bagel n Coffee (3)

As we were seated and the friendly owner greeted us and explain to us how this shop been set up and the concept of it and got to know that this brand is origin from Germany as the owner travel quite often between Malaysia and Germany so then he took the franchise and open it here.

Bagel n Coffee (4)

Another classic menu that makes me recall back my working time in a cafe when I was in Melbourne.

Bagel n Coffee (5)

Offers variety of bagel in different dressing. If you guys are coffee lovers, please do not miss their coffee which is blend with imported beans and the way that they blend the aroma out of it, its truly get the taste of the finniest coffee, of course I mean is better than Starbucks and Coffee Bean in my own taste.

Bagel n Coffee (7)

‘Cafe Latte (R)RM8.70 With smooth foam yet brew to perfection with the froth at the right temperature and right blend had pour on top of it. Its something I could not resist.

Bagel n Coffee (8)

‘Voreo Cream Shake’ RM12.50 is what I would assume like Oreo Shake. Was first to serve this and I finish it within minutes. Just cant stop slurping it. Nice taste yet not too sweet the smoothness of the ice is just perfect.

Bagel n Coffee (9)

For those who love coffee extra strong that I would recon ‘Double Espresso’. Brew from Original double shot with hot water compress and pressure thru it, comes the nice creation of aroma in it. RM5.80

Bagel n Coffee (10)

‘Iced Barraquito’ is something new to us. Its like a shot of espresso added on with condense milk at the base and top with creamy foam added with 1 or 2 cubes of ice, had bring the coffee aroma to another level. Something which Ken loves and enjoy alot. RM6

Bagel n Coffee (11)

I was too caffeinated till I forgot to shot another drink which is ‘Ciokaffe’ which is behind this glass of coffee. More like a long black but surely long black with great smooth taste. RM7.90

Bagel n Coffee (12)

Then next head on with our order of Bagel. That the bagel is slice into half and as the based support, cabbage, lettuce, onions, green pepper then top with the selection of your chioce and cover the top with another half of the bagel.

Bagel n Coffee (16)

Bagel n Coffee (13)

Which first serving is ‘Chicken Bagel’ by the look of it, me and Ken look down upon this bagel that wonder how would it filled our stomach but bagel had proof our assumption wrong! A whole slice of bagel is enough to make us full. RM11.50

Chewy texture yet with the special seed top as into baked had make the bagel unique in taste and with the ingrediant, sauces and salad added in. Its perfect!

Bagel n Coffee (14)

Then we head to our ‘Roast Beef Bagel’. Beef was roasted perfectly yet preserving the softness of the beef that did not overcook yet the aroma of the beef slices had combines well with the bagel and dressing. RM14.60

Bagel n Coffee (15)

Next the owner introduce us to try out ‘Sesame Bagel’ and tag with ‘Classic New York Lox’. Among the list so far, this would be the far best and personally highly recommended. The freshness of salmon that had a cream cheese spread on the bread added on with some dressing that combine is truely delightful. RM14.60

Bagel n Coffee (17)

We order another one that caught our attention which is ‘Quater Pounder Cheese with plain Bagel’ . The name and the look of it had made us impress and the taste of it, its delicious too. Medium well beef with salad with a slice of cheese is just more high class of Ramlee burger version. RM11.50

Bagel n Coffee (18)

Being the place orignate from Germany we would not miss the opportunity to try out their ‘Beef Krakauer, Chicken Garlic, Chicken Jalapeno’. Chewy and juicy texture that bath with their home made sauce had just end our meal with satisfaction and the boss gives us more coffee. RM7.90 each.

Bagel with coffee is truely great combination. Surely we will return to the shop for anothe round. Thanks to the owner for giving us a warm hospitality n Richard too.
