Tamarind Hill, Jalan Sultan Ismail

It is another year of Valentines' Day where all high class restaurants are squeezing their brains to come out with great ideas to bring the Valentines' atmosphere out to their beloved patrons. Usually during Valentines' Day, all high class restaurant will halt all their ala-carte menu and only serve Valentines' Day Special Menu. This happens to Tamarind Hill as well. It is a Burmese and Thai restaurant.
A glass of Chandon Brut, a lovely dessert and a beautiful girl to start my Valentines' Day. This Valentines' Set dinner is cost at RM450 nett per couple. Set not inclusive champagne but only include coffee or tea.
Tasting Platter: Pandan Chicken, Steamed Seafood with Young Coconut and Papaya Prawn Salad.
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Overall: 4/5 - Very delicious set to start with. Since it is a Burmese-Thai cuisine, these food are served cold and you would not feel offended by it at all because it is meant to be cold.

Soup: Clear Tomyam Hot Basil Leaf with Scallop, Lobster, Squid and Red Snapper
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Overall: 4/5 - The tomyam is not very spicy to spoil the night with running nose and tissues but the spicy kick is still there to make you know you are still drinking a tomyam soup. I hope the soup can be more and same goes to the seafood. The seafood is just a small chunk of everything.

Taste: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - It is served in order to get ready to fill in the main course. Nothing taste special enough to be commented here but not bad either.

Main Course: Wagyu Strip Loin (MB5) marinated in Oyster Sauce served with Pandan-flavoured Coconut Rice accompanied with Sautéed Kailan and Broccoli
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Overall: 4/5 - The wagyu strip loin is the highlight of the whole dish for tonight. How it is melt in your mouth...the experience...I am out of word to describe the greatness in it. Just hope the portion can be bigger. The rice is so fragrance enough which you do not mind to just eat them like that. Sauteed Kailan is still ok.

Dessert: Fresh Caramelized Mango Envelope in Pastry with Green Tea Ice Cream
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Overall: 3/5 - The ice cream has already melted by the time they served it to us. That is really bad way to end a course. As for the taste, I am quite fine with it but I thought to have more Thai style dessert instead.

The bar session which is not really needed at this moment.
I like their basin in the toilet the most! There is no tap water and the water just flow like it is a natural water from the river or something. Very cool design.
We enjoy our Valentines' Day a lot! This is a really good place for this special day. Highly recommended!
Without a doubt, the price is a little too pricey. However, when you only spend on special days...it is worth every cent!

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

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.
