汇东假日酒店, Tianhe

The main objective to Guangzhou is not looking for the best local food here but actually I am here for business trip. So today I am meeting one of my supplier for my business and they brought us to this great restaurant which is located inside a hotel called 汇东假日酒店. The hotel seems to be not really well maintain but the food there is totally awesome. Read on and I will share with you more about it.

Our supplier get a room for us to dine and the minimum spending for the room is CNY350. Not a lot actually. Easily achieved when you have at least 3-4 pax in the room. 
Stewed Mutton
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 4/5
Overall: 3/5 - It is always good to have mutton during winter. It warms your body somehow. However, do remember this is a heaty food so try to avoid having it too much or you will going to spoil your own trip.

Stewed Lotus Root with Peanut
Outlook: 2/5
Creativity: 2/5
Taste: 4/5
Overall: 2/5- It may not look so delicious to you but this lotus root really very delicious. Unlike in Malaysia, their lotus root is the softest I have eaten so far.

Salmon Fillet
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Overall: 4/5 - Actually this restaurant is serving Sashimi but does not sell live fish for steam which normally what an older people who like to have. For me, I rather have sashimi but since they do not like eat raw food so we have the salmon to be grilled in fillet. The taste is so sweet and delicious. After all, it is from the fresh salmon. 

Leek! - Sorry I opted out the moment I saw this dish. So I did not try any of this.
Baked Onion Cookies
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Overall: 4/5 - Very fragrance cookies which is so fragrant enough to roam within your mouth while you are chewing it.

Golden Egg
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 5/5
Overall: 4/5 - This plate is seriously not enough. It is finished within seconds. The inside is the smooth hot kaya filling with crunchy outside. I like this dessert so much.

Golden Bun
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 5/5
Outlook: 4/5 - Because the above two desserts were so delicious but hardly enough. We ordered another type of dessert. Their dessert is serving by dozen with the minimum of 1/2 dozen. So since 1/2 dozen earlier on was not enough, we ordered 1 dozen this time. This is another wonderful dessert. The bun is so soft with hot filling inside. The skin is full of melted sugar so this dessert is slightly sweeter than other desserts.

This is the hotel I am talking about. Not very sure of each of the dish price because it is not me who is paying the bill. But I do not the total damage was CNY600++ which I do think it is pretty reasonable and cheap because we did opened a bottle of red wine on top of this meal.

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.
