Earlier this year, I vowed I would lose weight before my big trip to the UK.Needless to say, I have done an awesome job.. of failing at it.
I've been on a slew of gastronomic adventures these few weeks, indulging in complete inhibition of the palate. Eating all day. Which includes at work, where you will most likely find me nibbling on some chocolate bar or something similar. Anyway, above is a fine-tasting, albeit slightly watery mushroom soup from PitStop Cafe in Serdang.
Went well with the garlic mantou pieces.
Do I look 15 or what? HA!
Checked out Brew N Bread, a stylish little cafe tucked in a quiet corner of Shah Alam.
Fresh milk for mua, the kiddo, because I can't handle adult drinks. And no, that isn't an optical illusion. :D
Rich, moist chocolate cake which had a slightly bitter-sweet taste.
Grilled fish with garlic butter lemon sauce on a bed of greens : cauliflower, cherry tomatoes, green peas and carrots. The presentation was very attractive and colorful, while the tender fish was heaven in every bite: moist, succulent and melt-in-your-mouth. The sauce had a tangy, savory flavor with the fragrant aroma of garlic butter. One of the best fish dishes I've ever tasted, and I'm not really a big fan of fish, unless it's raw salmon.
Apple-tini at DOME Cafe over brainstorming sessions.
Awesome coffee, topped with whipped cream, sweet and crunchy honeycomb candy bars and chocolate dusting. Set to satisfy the cravings of any sweet-toothed kid out there.
Seafood spaghetti carbonara. Well worth it's hefty price tag, because it comes chock full of delectable fresh seafood, from mussels to chewy squid, crunchy prawns and soft, melt-in-your-mouth fish pieces.
Moving on, I visited Haikara, a Japanese fusion-cafe located in Subang, right next to Subang Avenue. It's a quaint little shop tucked into a corner, cozy ambiance and environment, great for drinks and long talks with friends. The place is run by a Japanese couple; a tall, strapping guy in his 50s with a head of white hair tied back into a ponytail, and his very lovely Japanese wife.
Macaroni and prawn gratin. It's kinda like a porridgey-soup-macaroni baked with a layer of stringy cheese, prawns and corn. Could do with a stronger flavor though.
RokkoMokko, a tender, juicy patty of grilled beef atop a bed of bright green, served with a stringy, cheesy omelet.
That's about what I had over these 2 weeks.
