Fullhouse @ Sunway Giza

25 10 2010

Ever since Fullhouse opened its door at Ara Damansara a couple of years ago, the cafe has garnered quite a number of followers due to its unique lifestyle dining concept. So it was no surprise that theme-based restaurants such as Gardens Lifestyle & Cafe started mushrooming around town. It appears that apart from food, ambiance and atmosphere do add up the overall dining experience for city dwellers.

Fullhouse has recently found its way to Sunway Giza. Featuring a three-storey high restaurant, Fullhouse was unmistakably the most attractive looking place to eat there. The Mini which was so prominently displayed at the Ara Damansara branch can also be seen at Giza albeit in a different colour. What makes the decor even more attractive is the life-sized replica of Tiffany standing next to it. Tiffany is one of the cartoon character featured in the Fullhouse menu.

Fullhouse definitely scores high in terms of its ambiance. But how did their food fare? I took the Vongole Spaghetti (RM 16.90) which came in a reasonable portion.

The spaghetti was cooked with olive oil and clam meat. What made it spicy (and I mean really spicy) were the chili flakes. As for the taste, I would say it was quite nice. I am not a picky eater and as long as it goes well with my taste bud, I am generally okay with any food.

Only thing it was a bit too spicy for my taste but those who are looking for an extra kick wouldn’t mind at all.

Profiterole (RM 9.90) or otherwise homemade custards were delicious.

The texture was soft and fluffy while the vanilla chocolate sauce was not too sweet.

If you are planing to eat at Fullhouse, make sure you bring your camera long. There are tons of nice pictures to take around this place. Too bad I did not stay for long. Otherwise, I would have spent my whole afternoon snapping pictures there. 🙂

Garden Lifestyle Store & Cafe @ The Curve

4 08 2010

If the idea of dining in a garden full of beautiful decor sounds good to you, then Garden Lifestyle Store & Cafe may very well suit your taste. Similar to Fullhouse at NZX, Garden Lifestyle is a lifestyle store and cafe located at the Curve. The concept is simple. Beautiful garden, outdoor area and great ambiance all come together to bring a new dining experience at this place.

Even the tables were ornamented with mini flower pots which added a touch of English country decor to it.

The menu was filled with a selection of food ranging from salmon salad, deep fried calamari to lamb shank. We ordered the Butter Ginger Dory Fish (RM 16.90) and Spaghetti Marinara (RM 17.90). The Dory Fish was nicely prepared with a piece of pineapple stacked on top of the fish fillet. The dish was covered with butter ginger sauce and mashed potato on the bottom.

Although it may sound weird, the fusion of sweetness from the pineapple mixed with creamy sauce and fresh seafood kind of worked for me.

Next up is the Spaghetti Marinara. I had high expectation for this dish after tasting the delicious Dory Fish.

The inclusion of mussels, prawns calamari sure made it looked delicious.

Thumbs up for the food presentation.

However, I was disappointed with the spaghetti sauce was a tad too salty for my taste.

Somehow, I felt that the dish was hurriedly prepared and certainly did not fare as good for the price I was paying.

Admittedly, the beautiful decor is a crowd puller and for me, I wouldn’t hesitate to give this place a second try, albeit skipping the Spaghetti Marinara for something more tasty.
