HanCook Korean Restaurant, Desa Sri Hartamas

Once again, I had a meeting with my beloved Elayne jie and her family to become our "driver" to take us to our destination. Therefore, I must repay them with a good lunch. The place is Hancook which is a Korean Restaurant.
Plenty of side dishes which is quite promising for us but only a few of them are my favorites.
Salad with vinegar which is pretty appetizing enough to start our meat feast.

Taste: 3/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 2/5 - Ordinary stewed Kimchi soup. Very few meat can be found. Just kimchi and tofu. It is better to be served as side dish. As for the taste, it is quite spicy and that's all.

This is where to grill their meat. Their original air ventilator is not working.

Overall: 3/5 - Pork belly is still my favorite meat to choose no matter where I go. They are just so delicious. One thing I find that the portion given by this restaurant is quite small. Look at the plate above, that's all?

Overall: 3/5 - The taste is mediocre because this pork neck meat has more meat than fat. So it tends to feel queasy if eating too much.

Lastly, we are having a marinated pork rib which is done a little bad...which later you can see from the picture.

Price: 2/5
Overall: 2/5 - It is over grilled and the burn is easily been seen all over the meat. It should be taste really good but too bad that the burn taste has bring bitter taste into it.

Finally, we are served with their Sikhye for free. Sikhye is a traditional Korean beverage made with barley malt powder (yeotkiereum 엿기름) and rice. The taste is sweet and cold, with its own particular subtle flavor coming from barley malt. I love sikhye because of the flavor! Without the flavor, it will be like a bowl of sweet water and rice.
Overall, this restaurant serves a very small portion of meat but at a very high price and their grilling skill is not really that good. Somehow, I do not really recommend this restaurant.

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.

Magnum Cafe @IOI City Mall, Putrajaya

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.
