公巴好友海鲜, Teluk Kumbar Seafood

Have you ever dined by the sea and watching airplane landing just across the sea? I can't think of any other seafood restaurant can give you such experience but Teluk Kumbar Seafood. I am not attracted with the sea and airplanes. Actually I am here because they claimed that all their seafood are caught in the morning and cook in the evening. I called this FRESH!
Many people think that too! Look at the crowd at 6.00pm. Some people just to avoid the crowd, they shifted their usual dinner hour to 4.30pm. By the way, they started their business at 5.00pm. Exaggerate eh? But I am not kidding.

Taste: 4/5

Overall: 4/5 - The clam shell is big so does its meat! The meat is so sweet and fresh. No fishy smell at all. So I do believe they had all these in the morning. The soup is full of herbal taste. The price is crazily reasonable!

Crab with Signature Sauce @RM31.50
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - There are two crabs served in this plate. You can choose whether you want male or female crab. This is the first time I tried this type of cooking. At first, I do not really like it because it is a little too spicy. However, the more I eat the more I like the sauce. I am not really that good yet to identify how they make this sauce but definitely it is worth to try something new.

It is a worthy 40 minutes drive to this amazing seafood restaurant from Georgetown. I will definitely be back to try some other great dishes. If you are a crab lover, please be there early because their crab usually will sold out by 8.00pm.
Total Damage: RM70.50
Ambiance: 4/5
Service: 3/5
Food Serving Speed: Everything is very fast except the crab.

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.
