Magenta, Publika Shopping Gallery

Publika consolidated so many mid-end restaurants to high-end restaurants here. Just too many for me to explore one by one but anyway at end up with this Magenta restaurant.
The restaurant layout. Just take note that the food I have ordered under special lunch promotion for 2 which is choose any 2 of their 5 delicious food at RM39.90++ only. This set is inclusive of free selective drinks.
Aglio Olio Mushroom
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - Quite delicious. Not bad. Just any other ordinary Aglio Olio.

"Not so ordinary" Chicken Rice
Outlook: 5/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Overall: 4/5 - Honestly, the main reason for me to sit in this restaurant is because of this. I wanted to try how not so ordinary chicken rice can it be. Well, from the outlook, they looks different. As for the taste, it indeed taste better than any other chicken rice stall. But the question is this chicken rice cost RM29.00++ if you order ala-carte. Does it worth that much to compare with a RM5.00 ordinary chicken rice? So the only "not so ordinary" is just the price.

Pistachio Cake @RM12.00++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 5/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 4/5 - Soft, not too sweet and something to crunch on...one slice is really not enough.

Overall, I think this restaurant has a good ambiance to sit, drink and have a slice of cake. Apart of that, it is a bit overpriced.

Total Damage: RM57.10

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.
