How many of you actually dine before Mexican food as not to mention those commercialize  ones, as there is one that serve near authentic Mexician food which is Frontera Sol of Mexico that smack right in the heart of Jaya One. One of the few outlets that hard to miss if you are around the area.

What is in the house today is their Christmas menu, as you might think its early but nope, its just about a month away where is just nice you start to offer Christmas menu.

Frontera (1)

Frontera (2)

Frontera (3)

its a place that normal pack with families and friend to come by to get their favorite dish.

For their Christmas menu, they are preparing the food to be as authentic as possible, that will differ in individual taste.

Frontera (4)

One of the thing that I sip non stop is this Watermelon Agua Fresca – Non Alchohol drink, that had a bit of soda, sweet watermelon and mild lime taste as the end is just thirst quenching.

Frontera (8)

Next, head to the  most classic drink of all is this 1919 Sangria an Alcoholic drink origins from Spain and, different restaurant,pub and bar prepare this drink differently, what you taste here might not be the same as other outlet as they have their own recepi on creating it.

Frontera (5)

Traditional Tamales (Choice of chicken / Beef)

Frontera (6)

Find that this is the Bak Chang in Mexician version. Like sticky rice, that have lots of ingredient inside and the taste is quite different but rich in ingredient.

Frontera (7)

Roasted Butternut Squah Soup With Sage Pesto, as after I finish the whole plate, as I thought it was pumpkin soup and I am a bit suprise that its not. It is butternut, anyway, I still enjoy the soup.

Frontera (9)

Mesquite Smoked Turkey with Broccoli Florets Topped with Chili Con Queso

Frontera (10)

This is one of the main star for the night that, when ask, do you prefer fish or Turkey. Instantly 90% of them order turkey, as during Christmas period, we have been taught from small is that Christmas = Turkey (must have dish). Turkey meat was well marinated, soft and prefect pair with gravy and the best of all to pair along that you must not miss is the pinkish Cranberry Chipotle Relish (a bit sour sweet and very unique in taste, I sure do not mind to have more of that), pair along with sweet potato, yes its sweet potato not meatloaf.

Frontera (11)

Since every one opted for the Turkey, so I try out their Veracruz-style Fillet of Red Snapper with mexican rice & sonora vegetables. Usually, I do not take fish and its quite beyond my expectation that the fish is good, soft fish meat and the gravy is abit sour and you eat along with jalapeno which is not too spicy, that balance up. After effect will make your tongue a bit numb. 😀

Peach Tres Leches Cake

I guess there is too much food to choose when you came by in a mall, not until my best friend Kheng came down to KL with his wife then they tried on first round and told me the next day during yam cha session, Bok, got one restaurant served very nice Thai food – Just Thai , you must go try. . . then I said, kia, we go again second round and to my surpise he agree. . .

*note: missing out some price and dish name (lost receipt) 😀

For me, I did not know that there are such a nice Thai restaurant located inside 1-Utama New Wing even though I walk passby 1000 times and don even bother to take a peek until I was brought here.

Just Thai which is located at the Lower Ground Floor which is directly opposite Speedy Video shop that offer great ambiance of dining with more contemporary style instead of Thai deco.

Just Thai with their quote Hospitality with a heart . . You judge yourself ..

Prize in this restaurant are pretty decent with their portion and taste.

 

Thai iced tea @ RM9

So what chu waiting for. . lets take the fork n spoon and lets eat. . .

Simple stir fried veggie was fried very aromatic and the gravy is just perfect to go along with rice.

Thai Otak-Otak which I hardly miss when comes to Thai Food, with seafood along with finely chopped coconut meat, with the gravy coated on each piece of the seafood and I kinda like it too . . .

Signature FirePot with Tomyam (4 pax)  is the star of the night. Quite spicy, and sour as me and my friends like it to be. Recommended~

One of the dish I seldom order locally because not many places can fried this very good as it cook along with basil leave till a bit dry in gravy, that makes it one of my favourite and do not know what struck me, I order this and turns out to be not bad. . .

Green Curry Chicken as up to my expectation with creammy type of curry and chicken meat was soft and eggplant did not overcook @ RM 15

Water Chestnut with Coconut Milk is not bad, a bit too sweet for me. .

Mango sticky rice with steam the rice first and mango is nice just that find the coconut dressing a bit weird in taste.

Overall, we had enjoyable time at this restaurant. . .which is my friends favourite restaurant.

This restaurant is no longer a stranger to us as they served quality food. We had 2 occasions here that was during our first time got to know this place for a review on their food and second we did a Chinese New Year Photo shoot here. I heard a few feedback from my friend mentioning that their tim sum is pretty good too, and this round we are here for a round of great tim sum!

House of TAng (3)

‘Soup-filled Dumplings with Goji’

House of TAng (4)

‘Spring Roll with Salad and Prawn’ been fried crisply on the outer thin layer of the roll and the salad prawn that mix in it is not too creamy which is just nice.

House of TAng (5)

‘Pan Fried Carrot Cake’ had always been one of my favaurite that makes it a must have item for me. I love it as it is perfectly grill on the skin layer and inside its soft and filled with aroma of dry shrimp, by dipping with their chili and sweet sauce is just what I prefer.

House of TAng (6)

‘Homey Sticky Rice Rolls’

that we decide to operate it open. Filled with a big piece of juicy prawn which cause by the after effect during steam and its fresh.

House of TAng (8)

‘Rice Rolls with You Tiao and Chicken Floss’ as I love mine to dip it in soy sauce.

House of TAng (12)

‘Dumplings (Siew Mai) with Ebiko’ is rich in ingrediant and I love to chew on Ebiko.

House of TAng (13)

‘Sizzling Marinated Meat Bao’

House of TAng (11)

‘Guangzhou Prawn Red Rolls’ Is something which is not in tim sum’s menu that turns out to be one of their special dish in this limited time to be given out complimentary when you order 3-5 plates of dim sum.

Chewy skin that wrap with crispy tempura crust that been crush and a fresh prawn is insert in the middle, something that we do not get to eat every day, worth a try.

House of TAng (10)

We get to taste one of the lunch special ‘Curry Fish Head’ which is around RM14.50++ for this big pot, that I totally agree is one of the cheapest!

Me and Sunny just cant stop drinking the curry base and looking for the meat inside the claypot. Its aromatic with curry spices and the fish meat is fresh. Given a plate of rice to go along, we have no problem in finishing it within minutes.

House of TAng (20)

‘Unagi Puff with Teriyaki Sauce’ that you must have it hot while its out from the oven. Freshly baked and unique in taste with solid crust wrap around it and taste like Unagi in pineapple tart skin.

House of TAng (14)

‘Yam Paste Pau’ is the piglet that served next and all of us were like wahhh!!! so cutee!! then what happen to the pau next is as the picture below. . . .

A tim sum makan will never be perfect for me if did not end it with desert.

‘Herbal Jelly With Ginseng Roots’ is highly recommended by me, if you love strong ginseng and herbal taste that served out chill. I had 2 bolws of this.

House of TAng (18)

or you can go for ‘Tau Fu Fah’ served with ginger white sugar puree.
