Ben's @Pavilion KL

Today I am heading to the one of the lately has been highly rated restaurant which is known as Ben's which is located at Pavilion KL. Words of mouth is really powerful enough to make the place 90% occupied at 9.00pm on the weekdays. Truly a remarkable crowd.

I like this set of cards on the table. It is really creating a table topic for you. Very brilliant idea. However, I hope they maintain cleanliness for the card because I feel it is easily getting dirty with foods and drinks around it.
I do really hope these are the collection from the owner of this shop instead of just purely decoration purpose only. It will be more meaningful that way.
Yes, one table left which is still empty and others are all occupied.
This is a very elegant design which is quite cozy and relaxing when dining in here.
Salad Wild Mushroom @RM21.90++
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 2/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 2/5 - We begin our dinner with an upsetting appetizer. Only the walnut is nice wild others are either too salty or too oily.

Lamb Rack @RM49.90++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 2/5
Price: 1/5
Overall: 2/5 - The taste of the meat was good but the problem is I am licking the bones more than eating the meat. As you can see from the picture, you already know how small the portion of meat there. Serious disappointment. I wish to throw back to them and make them cook a new one for us. 

This is what I mean by licking the bone more than eating the meat if you do not understand. Hahaha...
Pasta Soft Shell Crab @RM21.90++
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 2/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 2/5 - The gravy is truly delicious and milky enough to make me dip for more. Oppss...I started of by complimenting the gravy because the pasta is nothing special. The soft shell crab is too salty! Terrible! I have to drink few glasses of warm water to cleanse it.

Over-rated, truly over-rated. 
Their mistake in their menu is they does not single out their chef's recommendation selection. If they do that, a new customer like me will not simply choose something which are not their signature dishes. Too many dishes in the menu are very confusing so I ended up with wrong choice of dish which not just spoils my appetite but my whole night as well. Yes, I am easily become super depressed when encounter with bad food. Bad food = Bad mood.

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.

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.
