Lemon Garden Cafe @Shangri-La Hotel

I am really surprise that a five star hotel like Shangri-La Hotel KL has very few selection of restaurants in the hotel on Sunday for lunch. What is left are the Shang Palace, Zipangu Japanese Restaurant and this Lemon Garden Cafe which served buffet. I am not into buffet so no choice I opt for an ala-carte meal here. I determined to have my lunch here because I am a Prestige member which I can enjoy 50% discount in all restaurants in the Shangri-la Hotel KL.
The wait is quite long so we are served with these delicious bread. You can refill again once you are finished if you want.

Raspberry Chocolate Dacquoise Cake @RM28.00++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 0/5
Price: 1/5
Overall: 2/5 - Looks nice...even the name is nice. Furthermore, it is recommended! However, just two scoops I feel very queasy and I cannot finish it no matter how I force myself. It is just a simple chocolate cake with raspberry taste which cost me a bomb.

Tiramisu @RM26.00++
Outlook: 5/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 0/5
Price: 1/5
Overall: 2/5 - Cream...cream and cream. All I can taste is cream. Do they know what is Tiramisu?

Overall, this restaurant is really meant for buffet only. Do not try something else.

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.
