Restoran cantik tapi servis agak selowwww.
We loved the Cowboy Burger (RM17.50), a special take on their famous 2x2 Burger; the double patties are fried with mustard and topped with caramelised onions, gherkins, lettuce and tomato. Juicy and flavorful, just how a good burger should be! The menu here at Cyberjaya also offer 3 x 3, 4 x 4 and 5 x 5 burger for those who like to go BIG.
Next on is the Chicken Burgers (RM9.50). The patties is a whole piece of de-boned chicken thigh. It has a nice crispy skin on the outside while the meat has a tender succulent texture. The buns that are used for the burgers are home-made by Harley's.
I believe this place is more suited for tea time, but we came for dinner. Only 4 dinner items on the menu: 2 similar egg dishes, and 2 similar nasi lemak. The egg set is just average, but my wife..

All in all, Alcea Coffee is built on a vision and conviction for honest, quality food that delivers and it shows. For those who happen to make a trip down to Cyberjaya, a visit to Alcea Coffee is not to be missed.
Masih tak mengecewakan aku !
Apa apa pun, Ramadan buffet dia memang terbaik !
The rice which this restaurant is famous for was heavenly. It had such amazing flavours that I was addictively going for it despite having had a full tummy. The best Nasi Arab that I have tasted till date and my rating for this shall be 10/10.
Resto bersih dan selesa.
Another one that we very much enjoyed is their Fried Chicken. It was deep fried to a golden brown perfection leaving the skin crispy and the meat juicy. This is one that would put many of those famous Fried Chicken joints to shame. Absolutely loved it and my rating for this shall be 9/10.
Overall, the food is not bad for just RM1.90++/bowl. I felt as if I have tried the whole menu in a Thai restaurant. It is truly satisfying. Among all the food I tried, the Thai-style Chicken Fried Rice was the worst. I do advice to skip that one. Their tom yam is spicy but delicious. However, the most spicy food among all was the Thai Basil Chicken with Rice. Do drop by to Aroii Thai to try a cheap Thai food at a dirt cheap price.
For those who are not fond of sotong or simply watching your cholesterol intake, you could opt for Siakap (RM15/set) or Ikan Bawal Goreng (RM11/set). Both are absolutely delicious in my opinion
The rice itself was so fragrant and richly made with coconut milk and their Sambal was mildly sweet and mostly spicy. If you like to have add on's, they do have items like Sambal Sotong, Ayam Masak Merah, Cockles and a lot more to choose from. My rating for this Nasi Lemak would be 8/10.
Their Tofu Sambal was really good. Mildly sweet and spicy, the Tofu itself was fresh and as a total preparation, it was very tasty. Similarly, their Mashed Potato was another delight on it's own. If you have been following my blogs for a while, you would have noticed that I would always need to have some curry to go with my rice. Today, that was not necessary as the potato itself went so well with the rice. I would rate both of these at 8/10.
The Mutton Perattal was cooked with lots of potatoes, just the way I love it and it came in some thick gravy. Not much bones and decent lean cuts were used. The spices were perfect too. My rating for this shall be 8/10
THE BOTANIST @ Cyberjaya
Salmon Run Set (RM 20) Luckily I ordered this set, whereby the salmon was smoked so well, and tender with the juices still intact. The pau is really soft and tasty. It goes well with the fish roe inside as well. But the burger portions is a bit small hence I was hungry by 2.30 pm.
Verdict: 1. It is a perfect place to chill out under relaxing ambiance. The only downside is that, securing a seat during lunch hour is difficult because of the huge corporate crowd. 2. Service is friendly and quick, but the desserts are a little on the high side price-wise. 3. Recommended: Pavlova, Tiramisu, Smoked Salmon and Asparagus Salad
Their Nasi Lemak Bungkus is probably two and a half times larger than the standard ones that you would get and the price is RM 3.00 each which I felt to be quite reasonable. Flavours wise, it's very Indian and lots of spices had been used to prepare the Sambal. There were lot's of Fried Peanuts as well and they too were fresh and crunchy. There's a huge, thinly fried egg that covers the entire Nasi Lemak packet as well. This I felt was a tad too thin. If they wanted to limit the egg used, that's fine but don't fry it to such a thin layer as it seems like you don't really get an egg taste to it. Overall, I would say that it was a good packet of Nasi Lemak. Very Indianised flavours and is not to be compared to the Malaysian version of this dish. My rating for this shall be 8/10.
The brand is also proud to introduce the “Bell Rice Bowl”, featuring our very own Malaysian-made sambal to cater to the Asian palate; a menu item that is unique to Malaysia. Made specially for Malaysia! Mexican seasoned rice with your choice of protein, sambal, seasoned black beans, pico de gallo salsa and fresh lettuce, along with nacho chips for the added crunch. An all-in-one meal!
