When it comes to pasta offerings, expect to tuck into the Seafood Risotto prepared with al dente Arborio rice. The creamy umami-rich risotto with many flavors and ingredients of tiger prawn, clams, calamari, and semi-dried tomato offers abundant heartiness.
Carbonara Smoked Duck – RM28, Smoked Duck Slices, Carbonara Cream, Egg Yolk, Speghetti Parmesan Cheese & Fresh Egg Yolk, Cracked a la minute. Even though this dish is not the signature here, yet the taste of this dish was simply delicious. The fresh eggs yolk made the pasta creamy when mixed together. On the other hand, the taste of the smock duck slices were tender and packed with aroma.
Was a bit disappointed la cause they looked like a restaurant/cafe that has it all. But then again, there were quite a lot of food items on their menu. But the Salted Egg Yolk Pasta is really the bomb!
Here's the location.
Not forgetting to go along with coffee of course. However, today the espresso-based beans have changed to Brazil and Sumatra blend compared to single origin Guatemala yesterday. Prefer the latter’s fruitier taste profile as this blend was kind of bold to my taste bud, hehe.
Lemon (MYR 25) Whipped yuzu ganache lemon and mint insert in white chocolate yellow lemon coating I must say that this was one of the best tangy desserts I had so far in terms of very citrusy pastry, after the vivid decadent memory last had at Bubba’s Gump- not for its prawns but Key Lime Pie, haha!
Overall, i feel that the food here is good, environment is comfortable and service is good.
Unagi Omurice – RM22, Pumpkin & raisin fried rice topped with Japanese omelette and grilled unagi, ebiko and nori flakes. The unagi was pan fried until golden crisp and full of pan aroma, it was then covered with teriyaki sauce and Japanese omelette. One of the highlights that captured my attention was the rice was fried with pumpkin and raisin that made it taste naturally sweet and unique.
We tried the Smoked Duck Mazemen (RM 14) and was delighted with its taste. Though smaller in portion, the noodles texture was al-dente with nice springiness and it has an elusive taste. Then the bowl is topped with nicely done smoked duck, along with ramen egg, sauteed mushrooms, tempura bits, steamed corn, spring onion and tori to give it a complete set of nutrients.
Overall, Saigon Bowl is a decent place to dine in. Service is good, environment is nice and clean. In terms of food, i feel it is average.
这里主打越式河粉 "Pho" , 有牛肉粉和鸡肉粉哦!
On weekdays, the restaurant offers set lunch at rather affordable prices. Last but not least, it is also noted that Saigon Bowl's menu is entirely pork-free.
It is worth coming back DCOVA for the second time ..
DCOVA is located in Logan Heritage row at Bishop Street, a heavily business populated area. House in an old building DCOVA has been around for a few years, discreetly serving coffee, pasta and desserts to plenty of locals. Word of mouth gets out and many continues to flock there to hang out at the quaint ambiance of the bistro.
This place, no doubt is the perfect spot for sipping coffee and people watching on a Sunday afternoon, or any afternoon actually. Or morning, or evening, or night. Okay I'll stop here.
Over the years, Gayo Coffee hosted multiple events including but not limited to marriage proposals, and small concerts.
Gayo Korea House serves a variety of delicacies, ranging from Korean, Western, desserts, pastries, coffee and etc. A few recommended dishes would be Ginseng Chicken Soup, Korea Kimbap, King Skewer, Kimchi Fried Rice, Spaghetti Cacciatore and Roasted Chicken Leg.
Here's the location.
The Buah Keluak Chicken was beautifully marinated, the sauce was expertly concocted... the Buah Keluak Sauce was something like blended Olives with a sleek bitterness, quite an acquired taste but the Chef had done wonders on the Chicken and amalgamated with the sauce perfectly. The dish might be a little expensive but trust me, the flavors are one of a kind
We decided to go with Peng Hu (RM 28). The fish was grilled to perfection in banana leaves, and was nice to enjoy itself without the condiments actually. Of course, the condiments elevated the dish into a higher level. This is probably one of the best marinated grilled fish without char that we really enjoyed.
The Sotong DeSumbat was probably our favorite dish of the day- huge squid stuffed with minced Meat and grilled over fire for the smoky touch. The dish was served with 2 types of sauces- a Vietnamese-inspired Fish Sauce dip and a Honey Mustard-like dip; both went well with the Squid though we would prefer the Fish Sauce dip for a more refreshing touch
Here's the location.
Seafood lovers can try the warm claypot of Udang Entangled, a chowder-like soup base noodle prepared with a tinge of alcohol. In the pot of bright orangy yellow colour soup, there is pronounced Chinese wine flavor and light depth of spice, and the owner uses vermicelli (glass noodles) and two huge prawns. Priced at RM38, the portion makes it a good dish for sharing between two.
Urban Daybreak has been serving some of the greatest brunch items in town but the proprietors push the boundaries further by offering a new dinner menu. The cafe is now open for dinner, apart from retaining the brunch-highlights, they are also introducing a monthly dinner menu. The culinary team behind Urban Daybreak challenges themselves with monthly themes, for the month of November 2017, the dinner features a Greek-inspired menu, showcasing an array of Greek specialties. Expect frequent change to the menu as the team is committed to roll out menus with tantalizing food trends and fierce flavors in the near future, not only Western but Asian delights as well- Japanese, Indian or even Chinese just to give you some hint. The dinner menu can be ordered as a set or ala-carte.
So next time you’re in the mood for a hearty urban brunch, do try out this cafe located in inner Georgetown. The cuisine is both wholesome and comforting.
Overall, this is the place to get nostalgic and comforting food especially with the use of their famous Ghee Hiang sesame oil. The BOOM drinks are also their specialty here which are perfect to quench thirst on a scorching hot weather. Another selling point is the price of the food here is very reasonable. The only drawback is there are not much parking space around this place.
While the Rice dishes did not wow us specifically, they did not disappoint... particularly the Chicken Vindaloo, which we thought it worked very well with rice.
One of the biggest hit All Day Breakfast Set (RM 7.50) that comes with a choice of Kopi-O or Teh-O, Toasted Roti Kahwin (Butter & Kaya) and 2 half boiled egg. Personally, we thought the charcoal toasted bread is good. It has nice aroma and toasted to crisp, then coated with a generous layer of mixture of butter and kaya. The butter and kaya is smooth and sweet to the right point. Such simple and classic taste that reminiscent us of the good old time.
Environment here is nice and comfortable but there is limited seating place as Biscotti Cafe is not a huge place. Service is good and food is tasty !
Butter Bunny Private Party was our only savory pick but the combination was not common- Vietnamese Banh Mi with Western Fries and Thai Mango Salad.
Adapting to the new normal Zen 161 Coffee and Patisserie is a cashless cafe, all payment transection is done either by e-wallet or credit card.
The made to order Raspberries Crumble Bar was much better, the Raspberries Crumble Bar were moist and crumbly, though slightly sweet, the berry flavor was bold and the Vanilla Ice Cream was not too shabby either
the food pricing here remains fairly affordable for most people.
The bell pork was nasty. They taste were wicked. Absolutely great Vietnamese!
Central Georgetown is a real food hub with no shortages of International cuisine... and that includes Vietnamese food. The name Pho Viet certainly rings a bell... and we were right, their specialty- Vietnamese Pho. The place was previously known as Yellow Lips (at Beach Street) but has since taken over by a new Vietnamese team that offers a variety of Vietnamese delicacies. Prices are on the higher side (20-30% higher than other Vietnamese joints in town) but they have certainly delivered the quality; service was impeccable as well. Not only did they offer complimentary dessert but they try to explain every dish in great details (they politely advised me on the correct way of eating Vietnamese Pho). If price is not your concern, do give this place a try.
Overall, it's a small place. So probably best if you order a takeaway.
As for the bobatea, they have a variety of the milk tea, fruit tea, cold brew tea, and many more. We have the Hamsup millk tea ( RM 10.90) where the boba milktea is served with the light seasalt in it. I love the milk tea flavours that comes simply aromatic with the hint of saltiness in it. The boba comes simply chewy too. And I love how they packaged the tea overall.
