Food can sometimes be very different if we are adventurous enough yet at times it can be a dissapointment. Recent discovery on something new in Bukit Damansara is this outlet called Maliqa Mediterranean Cuisine that serve HALAL Mediterranean food, and I must say its actually a hidden gem in the area. Open its door not too long ago already have build up well with many return customer with its reasonable pricing and food quality.

Tug in a very hidden corner inside of Sapura Kencana Petroleum building in the area of Publika, you will find this little fine dine restaurant, Millesime. I have heard friends mention about this restaurant last year, as they serve excellent food that is a little pricey but worth the spending.

Update 1/1/2017]: NO Longer in Operation

millesme (1)

I do believe some of you are like me, eat till do not know what to eat for the day or next meal. One special style about this restaurant is that they do not have a proper menu for you to choose from, mostly will be the best set of the day as both of the chef uses or sources best ingredient of the day then come out with the menu in the morning itself. Therefore, if you dine daily here, you will have different types of food being serve.

Or if you feel being adventurous, just sit down and let the chef enlighten you with their specialty.

millesme (2)

millesme (3)

Ambiance of the restaurant with their hidden corner of the building, that gives us alot of privacy, not to mention service here is excellent as the floor manager really do know their stuff.

millesme (4)

millesme (5)

millesme (6)

The restaurant also just recently won an awards.

millesme (7)

millesme (8)

Its a huge open concept restaurant that they  have and you can look at the chef cook right infront of them at viewing area.

millesme (9)

Left menu will be set of the day and the right menu which they have recently came up are ala – cart menu for the week.

millesme (10)

As we were seated, we are serve along with toast of the day that made fresh daily and serve along with seaweed butter, that is one of the chef signature.

millesme (11)

When the manager put this few slices of bread on the table, it smells so good that we have to get a slice of it. Love grew towards the bread when we spread the seaweed butter along. Strong taste of seaweed with mild butter end, as eat more and we tend to spread the butter ticker till we ask for another round of butter, till Ken and me just cut half of the butter slice, and just eat it.

millesme (12)

After stuff myself for 5 slices of bread, next serve along is Amuse Bouche serve with a cut of shitake mushroom wrap with a slice of slice of smoked duck is bursting with flavour in my mouth follow by and  mashed roasted aubergines got top with feta cheese.

millesme (13)

Some of them commented, this is one of a beautiful presented dish that its so hard for them to start eating is Gravlax of Snapper and Salmon with Mizuno Leaves and Shaddock Nuggets @ RM32. Hard work had been putting in to prepare thsi dish, as been marinated with sugar, salt, lemon rind and dill for 4 days.  Then little round of salmon are place on the side, then shower with a golden-hued tangy citrus vinaigrette, Manukka honey and mustard.

millesme (14)

This is no ordinary tomato soup, as Smoked Herring and Oregano Oil are poured into Rustic Tomato Soup.

millesme (15)

Soup is creamy and slightly thick, as smoked carrots and leek were blend along. The taste is perfect when mixed with the smoked herring as it add the kick onto the taste. . I am definitely recommending this soup, as its unique in its kind.  @ RM23

millesme (16)

Squid Ink Linguine with Calamari, Chilli and Pesto in Olio @ RM45

millesme (17)

As the pasta is cook slightly moist, and with the perfection of al dante in spaghetti . Squid were fresh as its chewy, cook along with cherry tomato.

millesme (18)

Before our mains, we next have our Palate CleanserStrawberry Sherbet

millesme (19)

This dish will definitely be top in my list as Slow Braised Wagyu Beef Short Ribs with Polenta and Mushroom Ragout @ RM58  by the side.  Chef Patrick explained that the short ribs been braised for 6 hours with red wine and the taste of the sauce is extremely good, aromatic and strong in taste that the wagyu beef need not knife to cut it, a gentle touch is good enough to separate it. I enjoy every bite of it by slowly munching.

millesme (20)

Comes to dessert – Valrhona Dark Chocolate Souffle served with vanilla ice-cream.

millesme (21)

Chocolate Souffle is fluffy soft .. .

millesme (22)

millesme (23)

The superman behind the kitchen is Chef Patrick Keith

If you are looking at good dining experience, surely this is one of the place to recommend, needless to say for special occasions. If you do have time to spare on Wednesday, its their wine Lunch and in the hurry with your client, they have  3-course Set Lunches at RM60++ per person.

[Remark] Its just so funny to see how I write a food blog post 3 years ago as this post was written 2009. Because of the pictures was deleted in blogspot now I have re-visited this place to make it available again. One of my favourite mee goreng – Mee Sotong place.
This is one of my favourite mee goreng stall or I would rate the best Mee Goreng in Penang, came back a few times, but did not manage to eat it, cuz it was close on Sunday and usually came back for the weekend and today, the crowd was suprisingly alot. I mean DAMM alot. I have to wait for 1 hour and 15 mins for this because it was holiday season. Wrong timing to eat.

mee sotong (5)


The pricing consider one of the very reasonable that they are offering with the portion being served. There is usually a queue when you go at, wrong timing. This is the crowd that ta pau, have not include the crowd that are dining in.Those people that ta pau were at least 4 packs and above. Celaka

mee sotong (7)

Tadaa…this is the ‘Mee Goreng Sotongthat been served. My favorite. Tambah Pedas pedas. Even though I cant really take spicy but to the hack, it taste bloody nice. The first 3 mouth I am already sweating like crazee, it is just worth the taste. Alot of sotong on top, taste a bit sweet and you have to stir the whole plate up. It has the ‘wok’ taste, not too dry compare to those like eating dry noodle. It only cost RM3.50 for this. (Now RM4)

mee sotong (6)

To those who could not take spicy noodle yet would want to enjoy this famous mee goreng, you can go for one without chili. Usually anything without chili is quite blend in taste. This plate of noodle is flavorful as they are fried with their own special sauce in it and mixture of sotong pull up the taste.

mee sotong (1)

With the noodle served, you people must not miss this stall. directly beside it. Their Signature drink which is…………………..

mee sotong (4)

‘ Coconut Shake’, it doesnt taste so sweet, have a very strong coconut juice taste, with vanilla-ice cream and of course the coconut meat in it. Only RM 2. It is very famous among all the patrons there.

mee sotong (3)

and for this last drink as being regular, the taukeh very nice, make me 1 very special refreshing juice which is called Limau Shake’ which not many people know about it. After having those spicy food. This will be the perfect drink to go along with it. You will have the feeling ahhhh…so satisfied. RM1.50 for this wonderfull drink

mee sotong (2)

Besides those, Ice Kacang in this stall seems a hit to many people, just that I do not really prefer it. Different taste bud.

Although I don really come to Desa Park City, it certainly is one of a nice neighborhood place to chill in. Everything seems so calm and peaceful, with people jogging around, playing tai chi, taking their dogs for a stroll and just feel nice to be here. – Soi Thai Restaurant

[UPdate – NO Longer in Operation] 

Not only that, as Desa Park City also have a little eatery place that smack right in the middle of the field and host quite a number of restaurant. One of the restaurant that I previously went that serve pretty nice food is a Italian restaurant right at the corner. Now, dropping by here again is a new Thai restaurant that open its door since last year October and heard quite good feedback on it.

soi thai (1)

Soi Thai Restaurant its like a hidden gem in this neighborhood that serve nice authentic Thai Food. I got lost when I first look for this restaurant as it always appears in my mind that all restaurant are only on ground floor, as this restaurant is located on the first floor.

soi thai (2)

Soi Thai offer very pleasent dining experience with simple interior and their staff is very helpful

soi thai (3)

soi thai (4)

soi thai (5)

Price wise are very reasonable and there are quite a range to choose from.

Pandan Leaf and Lemon Grass Drink, Thai Ice Tea,

soi thai (13)

Started off with usual Thai dining with kerabu, Green Papaya Salad with Dried Shrimp and Peanuts. I just love the taste of it, sourish which is good for stomach before heading to main course and its quite spicy with little chili padi being  mix along, and a bit of salty cuttle fish just blend the taste well.

soi thai (12)

Soi Thai Combo

This is a combination of pandan chicken, fish cake, thai wantan and croquette platter.

soi thai (17)

One thing to hunt for in this plate is the Pandan chicken. Well marinated and fried to perfection as the meat is ginger pale yellowish with a bit hard crust on the edge and its soft yet aromatic.

soi thai (9)

We ended up order another Thai Style Otak-otak as it is so good that each of us took 2. Steam to its softness like near eating jelly to my likings, and some prefer it to be harden abit. For me, I am okay with either version.

soi thai (10)

Thai Green Curry Chicken pairs well with rice.

soi thai (11)

Steamed Siakap with Lime and Chili Sauce sourish with lime base and we drank it like soup. Spicy yet its good till my tears nearly drip.

soi thai (14)

Something that you must not miss is their Signature Fire Pot with Seafood Tom Yam (4 to 5 persons). By the smells of it already thrill us to drink in asap with its sourish spicy smell that poke thru our nose is something that we can wait to put our hands on. To our delight, the taste is as good as what we smell. Spicy yet the soup is filled with seafood taste and sourish after taste. Just a perfect pot of Tomyam. – REcommended~

soi thai (15)

This is something worth to recommend Thai Red Curry Roasted Duck mild in curry taste, with duck meat is quite soft.

soi thai (16)

According to my friend, this is a very rare receipi that not many restaurant in Klang Valley able to cook this dish – Choo Chee Deep Fried Fish, is actually one of a signature dish in the restaurant. Deep fried fish shower with mild spicy flavor and skin is crispy with soft meat filling. – REcommended

soi thai (18)

Pineapple Fried Rice

soi thai (19)

Thai Style Kicap prawns

soi thai (20)

One of my favourite dish that I would not miss to try out is Authentic Pad Thai. Turns out to be good as the glass noodle is thin and small which it is suppose to be and fried with ‘wok hei’ covered with omelet. Mix all up is exactly the taste I have in Bangkok.  Just that Malaysia version do not add sugar. Recommended

Cannot deny that, this Thai restaurant is quite good around the neigbourhood and its worth to try as we are quite surpise with the taste that they can offer. Certainly will come back again, along if you ask me where to hunt for nice Thai food, this restaurant will falls into one of my recommendation list. 🙂

Publika had bubble up with many F&B restaurants as it had become one of my latest hit place to hunt for food. After reading numerous blog on Fatboy’s Burger that I walk pass many times yet could not find many friends to go with until last few weekends. Some good review pull our expectation up on that day and gearing up ourself to hunt for this sinful big burger. The brand that originate from Singapore and now it had kick off their first outlet in Malaysia.

fatboys (1)

A outlet which is easily located right above the Non-Halal Food court (Eat Food Village) facing their mini staging area. We were there early that day as 11.45am still yet to open and I thought it was close for the weekend as I see many customers try peeking in, to check on their outlet including myself.

fatboys (2)

Well, they open 12pm sharp that day and instantly many people just dash in to get a seat for themselves and family members.

fatboys (3)

Settings of the ambiance is pretty cute as the wall are filled with cartoonic drawings and I find that the seating is a bit like modern canteen.

fatboys (4)

As Excited to see on the menu, I am totally impress with the wide selection of burgers and all description  look goods too me. Felt like ordering half of the menu. 😀

fatboys (5)

I also got to known that one of their signature is from The Milkshake Bar for drinks filled with thick Malt.

fatboys (6)

If you could not find any of the burger suits your liking in the menu, then you can customise your very own burger. This would be an interesting one on your creation.

fatboys (7)

First start of mine with Vanilla Malt Milkshake. It was heaven when I first sip it that its super thick that you had hard time sucking it up as its serve along with frozen glass. Love the texture which is creamy from vanilla ice cream and milk taste did not over power it. Just love this glass of milkshake as I love mine dense yet not too sweet. RM 12Recommended 

fatboys (8)

Onion Rings is next as we saw the serving on next tables look so tempting and huge, as upon our order came, it came in different size that ours look much smaller and more oily. A bit dissapointed with this @ RM 12

fatboys (10)

Jamaican Me Hungry. RM19.00 – bacon stuffed pork patty topped with sundried tomatoes, chewy bacon, homemade coleslaw and smothered with mayonnaise on sesame seed bun.

fatboys (11)

Well, this certainly did impress with the pork pattie grill to perfection as it is not overcook, yet can taste the pork texture that is a bit chewy and filled with bacon and I added on mustard sauce to perfect it.

fatboys (12)

AS do not know what to order and came this sign recommended which is their signature is Fat-Basterd @ RM 28 –  sesame bun, extra thick double beef patties, extra thick bacon, cheddar cheese, fried egg complete with Fatboy’s homemade BBQ sauce

fatboys (13)

Its a huge burger and I think it just fit me perfectly. :p homemade BBQ burger was perfect with egg and cheeze, sadly the patty was overcook and it is dry and well done. If it was in medium well, then perfect.

fatboys (15)

Mahalo @ RM18.50 is another pork burger that we order. More like Hawaiian style

fatboys (16)

Wimpy @ RM 19

 Since in the menu mention that the burger are serve medium well, on the day itself they all serve all Well done which is very dissappointed on the serving on the beef patties. Nevertheless, I can say that they do not have the consistancy as my friend went a night before, she said that the patty was done medium well and it was perfect. AS for the pork is quite alright.

Well, shall go another round to try out and for 4 of us to dine a total bill of RM150 I find it reasonable. I hope that my next visit I will request my patty to be medium as to be on the safe side. Would encourage to request rather than leave what they mention in the menu.

Many of us know that 1-Utama is going thru major renovation especially on the old wing. From there, it had attracted many new retailing outlets to be operating in there and now if we go again, you get to see new F&B shops too. One of the newly operated outlet in the mall is this catchy shop that the front is painted red which is very eye catchy in the mall is this Watami Japanese Casual Restaurant as this lot used to be operate by Italianese which I rate one of the best in food among their other outlet.

[Update Jan 2014: NO Longer in operation]

Watami (1)

Watami is another new concept with Japanese Fusion style dining.

Watami (8)

Watami (19)

First few sips of the soup taste great and addictive as it head towards the end of the base it gets more salty.

Watami (20)

One of my favorite for the night is Wafu Hitokuchi Steak, that is cook medium well, just nice to chew and dip along with the sauce to make it extra kick, yet I still prefer mine to be eaten without the sauce. . 😀

Watami (21)

Tokyo GyudonTokyo Gyudon is beef rice bowl with hot spring egg in Tokyo style. Fine slices of beef being cook along that top with half boil egg Japanese style. 

Watami (22)

Well, Watami certainly offer a nice dining experience especially with their good attentive customer service that they have train for their staff.
