Restoran New Wong Poh,

It has been quite some time I have not had butter crab in KL. The last memory is still vividly in my mind. To refresh my mind again, I decided to dine in Restoran New Wong Poh. I found this restaurant by just typing "Butter Crab in KL" and this restaurant name was listed 6 out of 10 results in the first page. This restaurant must be real good!
Lala in Superior Soup @RM12.00++
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 4/5
Overall: 3/5 - I know I am here with the main objective of feasting on their butter crab but their Lala in superior soup is something you really shouldn't miss. It is the best starter to have before the crab. Their superior soup is really full of lala taste in it with a wine kick. Extremely delicious. Apart of that, the lala meat is fat and chewy. The best part is the lala is fresh. So don't let yourself blinded by their butter crab and miss this superior soup.

Butter Crab @RM55.00++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 5/5
Price: 4/5
Overall: 4/5 - Here is the main character for today and first of all, I need to comment about their price. During their weekdays, they have this special crab promo which is only RM55 for 2 crabs. Each crab weight at least 500gm. It is so worth it. As for the taste, I really like their creamy, smooth, milky, buttery and delicious gravy. It is so perfectly blend into their fat crab meat which is so fresh and sweet. The best part of the gravy is the curry leaf. That's the main reason why the gravy is so fragrant. Without the curry leaves, it is just another ordinary gravy like any other restaurant. No wonder they are so famous. You will definitely lick your finger in the end and finish up the whole claypot of gravy like drinking it like a soup. I am not exaggerating.

Mantou @RM0.90/pc
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - You definitely do not need rice to accompany with the crab. You need their mantou. You can choose to deep fried them or steam. I personally highly recommend you to choose the deep fried ones. The sensation feeling when you sink your teeth in the mantou with the crispy crust on the outer area and the soft in the inside.


When you dip into their butter gravy sauce, it will be even better. The mantou will absorb all the gravy that it could and release them all when you sunk your teeth into the mantou. Absolutely divine experience. For your information, you can add additional butter gravy with a cost of RM3.00/bowl. The bowl size is as you can see from the picture above. Overall, my crab experience in this restaurant is unforgettable. I will not hesitate to come back to this restaurant for their butter crab even I have to dine in alone. It is that GOOD! P.S: Parking here is a pain. Do come as early as 6.00pm to avoid this problem.

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.
