Edelweiss Cafe @Lebuh Armenian

I love to meet my old classmates at another state or country. This time I had the opportunity to meet one of my dearest friend during old times, Chan See at Edelweiss Cafe, Penang. She is still that pretty that I used to know of. She is also very nice and friendly enough to squeeze some of his precious time from work to take us for a good lunch with us.
Edelweiss Cafe is opened in a very old historical shop lot in Armenian Street. If you know the famous Ernest Zacharevic who draw the most famous brother and sister on a bicycle, that is called the Armenian Street.
There are a lot of antique in this restaurant. Even their tables and chairs are from the old time Chinese kopitiam. Very vintage and creative enough to merge a western restaurant in Penang style. By the way, Edelweiss cafe is a German-Swiss restaurant. It is because the owner's husband is a German-Swiss.
They do offer an affordable lunch set at RM24.00++ which is very attractive for office lady like Chan See.
It comes with standard salad, pea soup, drink, ice cream and a choice of 2 different types of main course.
First is the Ham & Egg which is not really worth it from the portion that you can see.
Second is the German sausage which is as delicious as always. Never get bored with German's creativity with their sausage.
There are two types of ice cream to be choose from which are mango flavor and chocolate flavor.
The signature of this restaurant is their Cheese Fondue which is meant for 2 pax. This is an authentic way of Swiss way of eating the cheese.
The only thing it is given for us to dip into the cheese is these bread.
Cheese Fondue For Two @RM99.90++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - The taste formed by coagulation of milk is very strong until you thought they mixed some alcohol in it. The taste is very delightful and I have never taste a cheese that is so original like this. I wish there are some other things for me to dip in it apart of the bread. Quite bored after a while when keep having the same bread to dip in all the time. Nonetheless, this is a must order dish if you are coming here at Edelweiss Cafe.

This is the Edelweiss Cafe which you probably will neglected it if you are not passing by here by foot. Overall, I do find this is quite a good restaurant to dine in especially for their cheese fondue but their price slightly higher than the local Penang could accept.

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.
