Alexis @Great Eastern Mall

By now, everyone should be familiar with Alexis, or at least, have heard of the restaurant. Established since 1995, many consider Alexis as a fusion restaurant and frequently compares it with Delicious. If you asked me to choose between them, I would say both are completely of the same standard. The only difference is, Alexis has live performances on certain days, which was started since 2003. Alexis has opened dozens of branches everywhere, and almost as many as Delicious owns. I am here at Great Eastern Mall today to dine where it is the nearest to me.

"Where izz me Buttery Nipples?" "What?! No hav? Jez gimme Kamikaze or Jell-o Shots or anything to get me boozed!" Caught this little man solo in action, leaving his parents at their dining table. So cute!
Too bad, we were there on a Sunday!
The live performance here is usually on Friday & Saturday nights. They're also the only days when fresh oysters are available on their menu.
Soup of the Day - Pumpkin Soup @RM17.00++
Presentation: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 5/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 4/5 - This is a one real tasty pumpkin soup and it is a huge bowl too! If we compare this with the same dish at On The Table, this one's got the upper hand for its creamy and not too salty taste. Rich in pumpkin flavour!

Smoked Salmon Sandwich @RM26.00++
Presentation: 4/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 3/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - The bread is a tad bit too tough to eat. Still, overall, it is not a bad sandwich.

Spring Rolls (Vietnamese Style) @RM20.00++
Appearance: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - The deep fried spring roll is slightly too oily but is overall a good dish. The problem is just the price, which is a little too expensive - RM5.00++/piece. I am not too sure if it's worth as much, even though this dish was prepared using fresh prawns.

Overall, this restaurant is a place I will dine and hangout frequently from now on because of their live performance. Okay...okay...I know...I know...Actually the real reason why I will be back is because of their Irish Fresh Oyster.
Total Damage: RM107.90

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.
