Franco, IOI City Mall

Every year I have to bring my wife to renew my visa and I will always have my lunch here at IOI City Mall. It is great to see all shops are opened inside IOI City Mall. This year, I visited Franco which is famous with their souffle and pancake.
We ordered a set lunch which comes with this Minestrone, Carbonara Spagehtti and Vanilla Softee at RM18.77++. This soup is a little too sourish for my liking.
They do have a lot of fancy drink which is made from Matcha. I have tried their ice blended style which cost me at RM13.96++. It turns out to be just an ordinary ice blended with a little matcha taste in it. Disappointing.
Carbonara Spaghetti
Outlook: 2/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 3/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - The Carbonara is so milky and creamy just as I wanted to be. However, the spaghetti is a little too hard. They should have cook longer.


Squid Ink Pasta @RM27.17++
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 3/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 2/5 - The taste is delicious but I just do not like the aftermath of my mouth, lips and teeth which were turned to black color. It is very irritating. The price is outrageous expensive for just 6 pieces of squid in it.


Chocolate Souffle @RM19.62++
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - Soft, hot and sweet in the inside covered by crispy crust at the outside. It is really delicious. No wonder it is their signature. However, I wish it is not too sweet.


The soft serve ice cream is not too sweet but the vanilla taste is not strong enough.
Overall, it is not a bad lunch but it is too costly. I think I will revisit again for their souffle or pancake only but not their food. Anyway, as long they are enjoying themselves, no matter where we dine will be equally delicious.

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.

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.
