The Chicken Rendang Spaghetti is one good example. We found the Rendang flavor was spot on with strong presence of spices and the Pasta was expertly cooked but a pity that the Chicken was overcooked. Not only that it was overcooked with a rubbery texture, the Chicken pieces were cooked in the Rendang sauce... merely fried version, which we thought it was slightly off the Rendang theme
The best seller and signature dish of Banana Beer Hauz is its Mee Udang. The broth may seem unpromising at first but the flavors were bold. It packed a powerful spicy kick as well. Not overly outstanding but definitely better than any average Mee Udang.
One of its brunch items- the "Scrambled" features Avocado-spread Toast, Scrambled Egg, Chicken Ham, Wedges and Yogurt-Granola. The serving portion was much bigger than expected. The Toast was alright but it gets soggy after a while
The roasted crsipy pork belly and the pork congee with foie gras here are the highlight.
We had Chicken Yaki Soba... which came in a huge serving portion. The noodles were legit and the sauce was spot on. It was a straight-forward dish, the Yaki Soba sauce was probably the buy-over-the-counter type of Yaki Soba but the seasoning was spot on- a good mix of both sweet and savory elements.
The chunks of tender lamb with notes of herbs are complemented by a big plate of fragrant white rice and a salad of tomato, lemon, and gherkins. A spoon of the sauce with the rice is just heavenly.
The Club Sandwich on the other hand, was decent-average. The Bread was nicely buttered and the texture was good. No big issues but things would be better if they could improve on all these small little things.
The beef noodles is a little different from the other versions I've eaten in KL and Seremban.. it comes with wantan noodles in a dark, beefy broth and tender chunks of meat. Although different, it was pretty enjoyable. Overall, a good lunch which the kids enjoyed.
And if you’re just looking for something light and non-spicy, the Fish Head Noodle RM12.90 is a dish you would go for. Many loves eating this bowl of noodle served in a milky fish broth with pieces of fish head, ginger, and aromatic garnishing. On a final note, you can have the dish loaded with extra ingredients like fish fillet, big white prawn, and pork slices.
