MSS 2011 Day 2: Grand Dinner at the Golden Palm Tree Iconic Resort & Spa Grand Ballroom

9 10 2011

The dinner was again an eventful experience with a good selection of food ala buffet style held at the Grand Ballroom. For those who love grilled seafood, Golden Palm Tree Iconic Resort & Spa offers fish, mussles, lala and etc to sink your teeth into.

I also enjoyed the numerous live performances by the team of talented resort staff. We were treated to dances like Rasa Sayang and Kadazan Magunatip Dance. It was really interesting as we get to see how diverse Malaysia culture is with a variety of performances.

The grand ballroom was certainly spacious, offering 840 square-metre and can accommodate up to 1,200 people. The best thing about the ballroom is that there are no pillars thus the stage is unobstructed at any angle.

The ballroom is also ideal for wedding and banquets. To find out more, contact Golden Palm Tree based on the information below.

It was certainly a fun night and we had a group picture on the stage before calling it a night.

Here are some of the other food pictures taken.

Warung Rindu @ Bukit Angkasa

17 07 2010

I heard from my colleague that there is this particular stall at Pantai Dalam commuter station called ‘Warung Rindu’. Rindu is a Malay word for ‘yearning or longing’ and since Warung Rindu is famous for their nasi lemak, customers will apparently yearn for the nasi lemak when they can’t have it.

Since it sounded quite appealing to me, I decided to bring my iPhone to locate the stall using its Google Map function. After a handful of wrong turnings and Internet browsing while on the road, I managed to find the stall at Jalan Bukit Angkasa which is a stone throw away from the commuter station.

Sure enough, the stall does look pretty interesting with rows of nasi lemak bungkus lining up at the front counter. The chicken were also being fried when I ordered my plate of nasi lemak. Having heard so many good things about it, I was waiting in anticipation to taste it.

The dish (RM 4.50) came with a drumstick, fried egg and sambal.

Firstly, the chicken wasn’t really that great. After hearing so much about Warung Rindu, I was surprise to find out that their chicken was only average at best.

It didn’t have enough ‘rempah’ taste as I would expect from a stall like this.

The sambal wasn’t spicy at all. As a matter of fact, there was a tinge of sweetness in it which is not a bad thing. But I find it lacking of the ‘kick’ that I would prefer in a good dollop of sambal. Overall, I wasn’t impress with the meal at all.

The satay stall which is located next to Warung Rindu fared much better.

The chicken meat (RM 0.50 per stick) was sweet and tasted quite alright. Some prefer the skewered meat to have a bit more fats in them but I prefer mine without it.

And at such, the satay suits my preference.

The kuah satay unfortunately was only average. If they had added more crunch peanut in it, I am sure it would have tasted better.

After asking my colleague again, I was told that the original Warung Rindu is located at the turning off the main road of Pantai Dalam commuter station. Sigh…!

Mak Long Warong Satay @ Jalan Puchong

8 02 2010

It’s rare to come across a ‘Warong’ indigeniously built on a former abandon wooden house. Mak Long Warong Satay is a prime example where minimal renovation provides the right dining ambiance akin to an old Kampung village. I spotted this place a few weeks back when its big banner was hung on its entrance. Feeling the appetite for satay (skewered meat), I decided to stop by this place to fill my stomach.

Rows of satay are seen stacked up on the red container waiting to be cooked.

I ordered the Mak Long ABC too which tasted not bad at all. Instead of the usual shaved ice dessert, they also include pineapple cubes and a dollop of red beans on the side.

And here are the satays. We ordered the chicken and beef variants as you can see here.

Each stick costs RM 0.70 which is just about the price you paid elsewhere. I prefer the chicken flavour as the meat is tender and sweet.

The best way to eat these skewered meat is with nasi impit (RM 1.00) and cucumber and onions with the spicy satay sauce.
