Tappers Caffe @ Bangsar South

10 08 2010

Tappers Caffee offers a kopitiam style dining experience reminiscent of the good old colonial days. The interior is charmingly designed with rattan chairs, white marble tables and old photographs which exude a warm colonial ambiance once you stepped into this cafe.

One of their recommended dish is the Tappers Hainanese Chicken Chop (RM 10.80).

Described as northern Hainan-style chicken chop, the dish came with a generous serving of potatoes, peas as well as carrots.

The chicken was nicely cooked albeit a bit cold. Nevertheless, the potatoes are soft and complimented the gravy nicely.

Too bad the carrot looks a bit stale in comparison.

We also tried the Soda Goo Leng Ping (RM 2.80). Using a mixture of red syrup with milk, the drink is reminiscent of ‘Syrup Bandung’ which is commonly served at Mamak stalls.

Tappers Kopi (RM 2.70) was pretty aromatic.

The Hainanese Fried Mee is also another noteworthy dish.

Stir fried using thick yellow noodle, the inclusion of chicken, fish and cuttlefish made this meal really appetizing.

For those who like the extra ‘kick’, the sambal willl definitely suit their taste.

I like the fact that the noodle was not too wet or dry.

Overall, I find Tappers Caffe to be a nice place for dining. The reasonable price with nice ambiance were definitely a plus point.

Balifeel @ Bangsar South

7 12 2009

Balifeel is a newly open restaurant at The Sphere in Bangsar South. Located at the vicinity of Kampung Kerinchi, The Sphere is a new commercial cum shopping mall that has recently opened with a few nice restaurants.

Offering authentic Balinese dishes with names such as Kenangan Balifeel, Jimbaran Seafood Platter and Be Pasih Mepanggan it is hard to resist the temptation of trying just about everything they have in the menu.

The restaurant is also nice decorated with Balinese theme. There is an outdoor section for those who rather enjoy their meal in the open air.

My girlfriend took the Nasi Goreng Kitamani (RM 8.90) which comes with a piece of fried chicken. Kitamani is a place in Bali famous for its volcanoes. After tasting this meal, I reckon the place must be also well known for its fried rice!

The dish was also prepared with some shredded fried eggs and crackers.

I ordered the Kenangan Balifeel (RM 12.00) which means Memories of Bali. This dish comes recommended in their menu. It a combination of grilled chicken wing, sate lili (skewered meat) and cumi cumi (squid).

The food presentation was very nice as it was served on a rattan plate. Here is a close up picture of the squid which was cooked with sambal.

My verdict? It is delicious! This is one of the best Balinese food I have tried so far.

Beside the food, I have to also mention that their dessert, Es Teller (RM 5.00) is worth ordering. It may look simple judging by the various mixed fruits they have in there but it has a nice milky and sweet taste to it.

If you are interested to try some great Balinese food, head down to Bangsar South, The Sphere.

This picture was taken in San Francisco Coffee located at Bangsar South, Sphere. Apparently, this new neighbourhood shopping mall is quite nice with open glass concept. I will try to post more pictures as soon as I get my laptop sorted out.
