Kedai Kopi Melanian, Kota Kinabalu

Last year I had a disappointing experience of Sheng Rou Mian at Kedai Kopi Jia Siang so this year I was pretty determined to find a better Sheng Rou Mian for redemption. To my surprise, I was able to find one which is just located few streets away from Kedai Kopi Jia Siang which is known as Kedai Kopi Melanian. By the way, Sheng Rou Mian means raw meat noodle. Do not get panic by thinking that I am introducing you eating a raw pork. 
The pork is fresh and thinly slice and mix with flour before cook. So to make the texture as if you are having a raw pork. I find that people in Kota Kinabalu always having noodle for their breakfast. A lot of noodle stalls are opened early in the morning.
Their noodle is fantastic! The noodle is springy and tangy as if the noodle is jumping inside your mouth. The mixture of the sauces are perfectly done. The noodle alone is already scrumptious.
The price of a bowl of Sheng Rou Mian is RM7.50++. This is the Sheng Rou which is so soft and tender. Basically the pork seems like going to melt in your mouth gently. The feeling is really great. Finally I found the best Sheng Rou Mian so far. This Sheng Rou Mian is made by Melanian. Melanian is a small ethnic group in Sabah.

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.
