Souled Out @Somerset, Ampang

Souled out has been began their footstep at Sri Hartamas, Mont Kiara since 1996 and finally they opened a new branch after 15 years at the east of Klang Valley, Ampang. It is a great news that I do not have to travel so far for it. 7atenine @Ascott and W.I.P @Bangsar are under the same company with Souled Out. 

Red bedded roses over our dining table. Nice~

Pan Seared Aussie Shore Scallop
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - Scallop on a bed of rich pumpkin puree, topped with aged balsamic reduction, tomato & avocado and garnished by alfalfa shoots & drizzled with truffle oil. Incredibly done but unfortunately the chef was making these in bulk which has made these dish turned cold when it was served. Pretty disappointing.

Rack of Lamb Tandoor Grilled
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - Served with parmesan mash, sauteed spinach, green lentils, diced carrots & yoghurt mint sauce. Slight gamey taste which is pretty okay for me which at least I know I am having a lamb chop. Other than that was pretty normal as not much meat for me to chew on. Once again, the serve it in a bulk, the lamb has turned cold.

Andaman Sea Bream
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - Covered with sauteed organic spinach, antichoke bottom, golden roast pumpkin, shimeji mushroom topped with crispy capers & lemon beurre blanc. This should be the best dish for that night. I light the crispy part on top of the fish. Nicely done crisp with soft and melty fish meat inside. Perfectly done. However, too bad because when they served this dish, it was already cold. Yes, they served in bulk too. 

Miniature Lava Cake
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 2/5
Taste: 2/5
Overall: 2/5 - I do not really know who the heck creating this lousy dessert. The apple and the cake do not seem to blend for me. Apart of that, the lava inside the chocolate cake already turned cold.

Newly opened inside the Somerset, Ampang and right beside the busy road of Ampang. Very obvious enough to catch an eye of them since most of the time you will stuck in a jam on this road.
This is not a bad place for partying and some gathering. However, never try their sets which they are preparing in bulk which has turned cold in a moment. Pretty upsetting when eating cold western cuisine. I thought I am having a Japanese meal. Apart of that, I have waited for hours for them to serve the meals. Really disappointing.


Parking inside the Somerset and leaving your car to the valet are the same price which is cost RM10.00 per entry. I rather leave it to the valet which save my time to hunt for a parking lot.


Total Damage: RM190.00
Ambiance: 4/5
Service: 4/5
Food Serving Speed: Very Slow
Will I Revisit?: Yes, but never order a set meal again.

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.
