Charms Cafe @1Utama Shopping Mall, Bandar Utama

Besides Kell's Restaurant & Cafe, another combination of western + local cuisine into one restaurant which is called Charms Cafe. They have branches at The Curve and Kluang Mall too. But I wonder why they did not mention Kluang Mall in their official website. Hmmm....

Anyway, let's check it out their signature dish.

Lamb Charner @RM18.90++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 3/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - Very creative eh? Eye-catching interesting way of displaying the food which makes you wanted to order it. However, by the time they serve it to you...BIG LETDOWN. Look at the lamb. I hardly see any meat! The taste is good but because seems like eating the bones more than the meat has make it not worth the price tag.

Nasi Lemak Special @RM10.90++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 3/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 2/5 - A green rice nasi lemak? Another eye-catching dish which has cheated my appetite. Hehe...but...the portion is just too small. I expect bigger chicken part but it came out just small chicken fillets.

Cendol @RM3.50++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 3/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - Another nice looking dessert. But the cendol is as hard as ice. They should defrost the cendol first!

Very beautifully designed cafe. They really can "charm" you to their restaurant.
The name of it already says that. They really create a lot of charms. Charming design, charming drinks, charming foods and charming dessert which makes you sit down and order them. However, when the food arrives it is not what you are getting!!! How can it be like this? A big disappointment. This place equipped with wi-fi.

Total Damage: RM38.30 (2 pax)
Ambiance: 4/5
Service: 2/5
Food Serving Speed: Slow
Will I Revisit?: No

Tamarind Springs @ Jalan TAR, Ampang

Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - It is also known as their signature Symphony of Starters, which takes you across the breadth of Indochinese cuisine with Vietnamese shrimp crystal rolls, lemongrass prawns, Cambodian-style deep-fried shrimp cakes and minced chicken on cinnamon sticks. All served with a variety of piquant sauces. The plate is just nice for 2 pax but the price is too expensive for that small portion.

Outlook: 3/5 Creativity: 5/5 Taste: 4/5 Price: 3/5 Overall: 3/5 - If you think that coconut soup should be a milky soup, then you are wrong. This is a chicken tomyam clear soup with coconut meat in it. Very delicious and creative way to make it. The coconut meat is the highlight of the entire soup. It just gave the soup an extra coconut fragrance in it and of course, they are edible. Do not worry, the soup is not too spicy.

Magnum Cafe @IOI City Mall, Putrajaya

Outlook: 5/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 4/5 - It contains of cashew meringue, Mascarpone cream, honey balsamic cream served with white chocolate dipped vanilla Magnum topped with freeze dried raspberries and fresh strawberries. My suggestion is to mix them all together including the ice cream itself otherwise by eating the ice cream alone will be too sweet. Once you mixed them all together, the magic comes. The sensational taste of creamy, crunchy, a little sourish kick and sweetness combining all together to create a wonderful ice cream dessert. Definitely is a must order dessert when you are there.
