Kitchen Creatures @ Centrepoint

20 10 2010

When I first came across Kitchen Creatures, I was intrigued with their no-frills dining concept. Simply put, all food at Kitchen Creatures are nett price. This means there are no extra costs, no government tax and service charge. Certainly, this notion was a welcome change and prompted me to give this restaurant a try last weekend during lunch hour.

Apart from the name of the restaurant, their menu was also creatively designed. Inside, a plethora of food were just waiting for us to sink our teeth into.

I took the Monster Platter (RM 15) for starters which came with fried shrimp, mushrooms, mini chicken wings and nachos. The waiter apologised to us as they ran out of calamari rings but promptly substituted them with additional shrimps. Clearly, the name itself was a good indication of the huge plate which they served the food on. The portion was also quite reasonable and can be considered as main course if you are not a big eater.

And speaking of the shrimps, they were fresh and nicely fried. The shrimps were also tasty.

The mushrooms were also equally good. I rarely had fried mushrooms but the ones at Kitchen Creatures have made me look forward to eating them in the future.

The nachos were very big in size but somehow it weren’t as cheesy or spicy as I hoped they would be.

Thankfully, the chicken wings fared better. They were moist and tasty. I wished they would have given us at least two more pieces. Oh… that was gluttony speaking on my behalf.

The combination of sour cream with tomato ketchup had me dipping the food into these two sauces. I even asked for a second helping as the first one finished in no time at all.

Next up was the Chicken Shiitake (RM 15). It was basically grilled chicken breast accompanied with some buttered vegetables and spaghetti noodles.

Hmm… does buttered vegetables means they are fried with butter?

Ever heard of roasted capsicum sauce before? Well, it was the first time I came across it. The sauce was poured onto the chicken breast. It sure looks good and tasted even better! Slices of shiitake mushrooms were found underneath the chicken.

And what did yours truly had on that day? Behold… The Big Daddy Monster Burger! If you are game for something huge, this is it. The burger is so huge that you will gasp in awe when it is put on the table. It came with double patty (choice of chicken or beef), bacon, cheese and vegetables. For RM 18, I say it is value for money. You won’t find any burger that big for that price.

Putting the size aside, how does it taste? Well it wasn’t all the bad. I sliced the burger into two portions and the first half was rather dry in my opinion. The second half tasted much better as the sauce (presumably) was not evenly distributed.

In the end, I felt so full after eating the entire burger. I even skipped my dinner on that day and did not feel hungry the next morning.

Yeah, I guess Big Daddy Monster Burger sure lives up to its name.

Overall, I would consider Kitchen Creatures as nice place to eat. Of course, the no-frills dining concept will definitely means that what you eat is what you pay. Recommended!

Ribs @ Tengkat Bandar Utama

15 10 2010

When my other half wanted to eat Western breakfast last two weekend, I stumbled across Ribs @ Oasis on the Internet which is located not too far away from 1 Utama shopping mall. Apparently, Ribs was offering weekend breakfast menu which features their Ribs Breakfast Special.

For RM 19.50, the set consists of choice of eggs, grilled tomatoes, mushrooms, sausages,bacon and baked beans. If you ask me, the price ain’t cheap for a breakfast meal but I was quite satisfied with the overall food.

The breakfast set also came with toast bread which goes well with the baked beans.

Of course, what would a Western breakfast be without the bacon? It was nicely cooked, tasted nice and goes well with the rest of the stuff on the plate.

The grilled potatoes was slightly burnt but then again, some people do prefer it that way. It was also salty (in a good way).

The set menu also came with free refill of tea or coffee.

I also ordered two half boiled eggs (RM 3.00) which I dipped the breads onto it. I would prefer the eggs to be slightly less cooked.

Overall, Ribs is a nice place to have a decent Western breakfast meal. However, the price was rather expensive though they do have other offerings such as Nasi Lemak or Fried Beehoon. Do check out their breakfast menu here.

Black Canyon Coffee @ Centre Point Bandar Utama

It has been a while since I discover a nice place to hang out. Black Canyon Coffee at Centre Point offers a nice ambiance for people like me to surf via their free wi-fi service.

While it is not as popular as Starbucks, the food and drinks weren’t too shabby. Their menu certainly looks inviting.

In fact, I enjoyed eating their American Club Sandwich which comes with four slices of sandwiches and french fries. Good choice for a late afternoon snack.

The drinks were also nicely presented. I enjoyed my iced chocolate which was perfect for a sunny afternoon weather.

And here is a picture of Phuket Paradise which is basically coconut yogurt with pineapple taste.
