Imperial Duck Restaurant, Kuching

I forgot to mention about the lifestyle for the people at Kuching which has caused the restaurants at Kuching to accommodate to their norm. Most of the restaurants here are opened as early as 6.00am. Don't be amazed! That's their breakfast hour and their lunch hour is 12pm sharp or before. Most of the restaurants will start to packing up when near 2.00pm. If you travel there and looking for good food, you better plan your lunch earlier and do not bother to try after 2.00pm because they most likely will stop selling even though they still have things to sell.

Because I dived earlier on and by the time I get back to the city already after 2.00pm. We hunt for more than an hour for food and in the end we saw this Imperial Duck Restaurant which is opened but has no patrons in their restaurant. I thought they are having a break but I confirming with them, we got a green light. Hooray! This restaurant specialties are their dim sum, duck and soup.

They have this cute piggy red bean bun. I ordered it straight away when I saw them. Look at both them...so alike and cute!!! :D

Taste: 4/5

Taste: 4/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 4/5 - It is served cold. I really like the sweet mango inside with an adequate amount of cream which is not too sweet. Delicious!

Here you go, my sister is trying to demonstrate how thin is the skin of this dumpling. You won't feel like eating flour.
Imperial Duck Drumstick Noodle @RM9.50
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - Since duck is their specialty, I just have to order them and try. The duck meat is really delicious. It is not hard to chew like what some other restaurants served. Apart of that, the crispy duck skin is just irresistible. This is a great duck mee but the price is just too expensive.

Glutinous Rice Dumpling with Black Sesame @RM4.00
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - This is like mochi with black sesame. It was served cold and the black sesame cream pour into your mouth with just one bite. Very delicious. Not so sweet when the rice dumpling which is tasteless has compensate with each other.

Steamed Egg Yolk Bun @RM3.00
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 3/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - This egg yolk bun is so beautiful with yellow golden color. However, it is not really tasty as I have expected it to be. The egg yolk inside where like paste instead of cream like I used to like to eat at Hee Loi Ton. I do not experience the heavy egg yolk flooding in my mouth in the first bite with this.

A closer look and you can see a little amount of egg yolk paste inside which can't caused a flood.

Overall: 2/5 - I just hate almond dessert. It taste so weird like eating medicine. I do not why I order it that day. I know almond good for skin but this is just not for me.

The dim sum making kitchen area
The chef who is making the duck mee and rice. Their duck is indeed very delicious but just a little too expensive.
This is the location and very much recommended only if you missed Kuching's lunch hour.

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

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.
