AHMO, Georgetown

Listed as one of Axian's favorite, I just can't miss the chance to find out the truth about this western restaurant which is known as AHMO. Axian is the presenter of a local food programme which is called "Taste with Jason". It is available in AFC channel in Astro. This place is quite dark and quiet at night. Pretty scary if you plan to walk here.
AHMO blast @RM12.90 - Mixed with 5 different kinds of fruits which I do not find it "blasting" for me. It is rather a plain sourish drink.
Shitake Mushroom Soup @RM5.90
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 5/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 4/5 - Very creamy soup with rich mushroom taste. What I am expecting the most from a mushroom soup is to have lots of tiny bits of mushrooms in it and they did it just right. This is a great one for the start!

Classic Caesar Salad @RM20.90
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 3/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - Overall I like this salad except two things. I prefer the egg to be a poached egg and the chicken meat should be from the drumstick which is tender and easy to chew together with the salad.

Tom Yam Seafood Carbonara Spaghetti @RM16.90
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 2/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - They got the creativity of getting the Thai tomyam flavor in a pasta but unfortunately the tomyam flavor is way too harsh for this meal because it has cover all other flavors such as seafood freshness and creamy carbonara. One more thing I do not think the tomyam flavor is not anywhere near the original Thai flavor. It is more like a Malay tomyam.

Grilled Tiger Prawn @RM59.90
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 2/5
Price: 1/5
Overall: 2/5 - Sorry about the blurry photos...lack of light in the restaurant but carrying a flashgun for dinner is a little exaggerating. Anyway, looks tasty and the whole prawn is easily take out of its shell. Freshness is 100% after the first bite but when chew went on and all I can taste is saltiness. It is VERY salty. Lastly, just two prawns = almost RM30.00/pc??? 

Overall, I do not think this restaurant has made it as my favorite as what Axian's believed. I would say it is over rated or their quality is declining.

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.
