Ikea @ Mutiara Damansara

Had a quick bite at Ikea a while back. I ordered the chocolate muffin which costs less than RM 2 each. Been a while since I ate here and thankfully, the food is still as good as it was.

Dr. Cafe @ Solaris, Mont Kiara

25 04 2011

One early morning, I found myself at the uber-modern commercial centre, Solaris Mont Kiara to exchange my defective iPhone at DiGi centre. While waiting for DiGi to open, I spotted Dr. Cafe which looks appealing from outside. While I am not a coffee lover, I do enjoy spending my time at any Starbucks outlet since the music and cozy ambiance make it feel like a second home to me.

Dr. Cafe seems to offer a similar ‘feel’ and hence, I decided to have my breakfast there. I took the E-Breakfast value set (RM 7.40) which includes a turkey and cheese burger and a cup of coffee.

The mini burger comes with a slice of turkey with melted cheese oozing out. It has a slight savoury taste to it. Although the portion wasn’t big, it was good enough to fill my stomach although I wish the size was slightly bigger.

As far as I know, Dr. Cafe prides itself on serving the highest quality coffee beans. Like I said, I am not a coffee connoisseur to tell how a good coffee should taste like, but as far as I know, the coffee tasted alright to me.

Apart from the food, the customer service was good (the staff were full of smile) although photography was not allowed inside Dr. Cafe (sigh!). Speaking about the interior, Dr. Cafe do offer their own range of merchandise for sale ranging from coffee cups to tumblers and etc.

And look… Their serviette comes with printed text. How cool is that?

In short, I wouldn’t mind dropping by Dr. Cafe for a cup of coffee if I am around the neighbourhood of Solaris the next time.

Fullhouse Lifestyle Store and Cafe @ Sunway Giza

17 04 2011

I had a chance to try out my cousin’s AT-X PRO SD 12-24mm F4 Ultra Wide Angle lens (that’s a mouthful). Coincidentally, we were at Fullhouse Lifestyle Store and Cafe at that time so it was a good time for me to test the lens. Using a UWA lens is like seeing the world from a bigger perspective. Everything look wider which gives more flexibility in composing a shot in a tight area. Here is a sample picture that I took today.

Secret of Louisiana @ Plaza Kelana

15 04 2011

A while back, I got to know of this restaurant called Secret of Louisiana which is located along the LDP highway. This might as well be the best kept secret (pun intended) so far as Secret of Louisiana offers some of the best western cuisine that I had tried so far.

First up is the famous Seafood Gumbo (RM 20.90). Seafood Gumbo is actually a mixture of seafood cooked with thick creamy sauce, herbs and cheese and served with toasted garlic bread. While it may be a bit salty for some people, I find the taste just nice for me. Perhaps my taste bud leans towards salty food but the rich texture of the gumbo compliments the crispy toasted bread very well.

Next up is the Louisiana Famous Shrimps Scampi (RM 28.90). Although the price may not be cheap, the restaurant certainly did not skimp on the portion. The inclusion of huge shrimps certainly made it worth the price to pay.

From what I know, that the shrimps are chargrilled and cooked a mixture of cajun spices and other herbs. Again, I was told by the captain that Secret of Louisiana uses a lot of herbs resulting in the dish tasting a bit more salty.

If you do fancy seafood, then go for the Creole Grilled Seafood Platter (RM 69.90). According to their menu, this is the richest seafood platter ever which comes with crawfish, prawns, clams, mussles, fish fillets, calamari and scallops.

I must admit… the list is certainly exhaustive and will delight any seafood lover!

The dish was accompanied with BBQ and citrus sauce. Just look at how appetizing the dish is!

And here is the Smoked Salmon Tossed Pasta (RM 28.90).

The highlight of the dish was of course, the slices of smoked salmon which were topped with toasted garlic and chilli.

And finally, for something a bit ‘lighter’ do try the Fisherman Seafood Olio (RM 28.90).

With the absence of the usual spaghetti sauce, the Fisherman Seafood Olio was cooked with olive oil, button mushrooms and assorted seafood.

Admittedly, dining at Secret of Louisiana isn’t a cheap affair, the food and great ambiance do make up for the price to pay. Did I tell you that the restaurant is located next to the lake side with a beautiful view?

If you are into Western food, then make it a point to drop by this place. Oh, if you are looking forward to try their pizza, please note that they do not serve pizza on Sundays.

It has been quite a while since I took pictures for Bakin’licious. If you are a fan of bread pudding, make it a point to order one or even two from the website. More pictures can be found here.

Wei Ling @ Kelana Jaya

5 04 2011

Last two weekends, I joined a couple of photographers for a portrait shooting event. Despite the hot weather, the event turned out pretty well. Wei Ling was natural in front of the camera which makes it easy for me to shoot her. Here are some of the pictures taken that day.
