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.

Meatworks @ Solaris

14 01 2010

Last Thursday, I decided to bring my girlfriend for dinner at Solaris, Mont Kiara. Despite hearing so much about this place, I have never been to this place until that night.

Initially, we wanted to try out the Japanese buffet at Tenji but after looking at the price, we decided to look elsewhere. That was when we stumbled across Meatworks which is just right in front of Cold Storage supermarket.

Meatworks is a restaurant, deli, butchery and meat studio all mixed into one. With its unique concept, customers can walk in to purchase fresh meat and even participate in cooking classes apart from dining in there.

For starters, we took the Meatworks Chips (RM 12) which is basically fries with spicy garlic sauce.

The fries were thick and goes well with the garlic sauce.

I also ordered a cup of Earl Grey Tea…

As for the main dish, I ordered the Texas BBQ Burger (RM 24) which comes with ground beef chuck, Texas BBQ sauce, North Carolina Coleslaw and corn crusted onion rings.

The beef was tender despite asking for it to be cooked well done. The BBQ sauce was flavoursome too. The only problem was the size of the burger. The beef chuck was quite thick and and I had to eat the individual pieces of bread, onion rings and meat separately.

My girlfriend tried the Portobello Burger (RM 24) which comes with ground beef chuck, chargrilled Portobello mushroom, sliced cheddar cheese.

This is how it looks like…

The beef chuck was really thick. Here’s a picture of the meat with cheddar cheese on top on it.

Overall, the food was pretty good. Although the price is not cheap, the portion and taste makes it all worthwhile.
