Samira by Asian Terrace, KLPAC

A place where my boy able to be in awe like this is at Samira by Asian Terrace. Last time, it was a Japanese restaurant but because of the quality and bad customer service had caused them failing to survive. Now, it has become an Indochinese cuisine restaurant.
The catching point of this restaurant is they have an amazing lake by the side of the restaurant. It has koi fishes in it. The restaurant does not have air-condition so during the day, the restaurant might be a little stuffy and hot. There will have more customers during at night.

Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - It is a set of Vietnamese famous delicacies in one plate. The best of all is the mango salad which is sourishly sweet. This platter is fit for 2 pax only.


Prawn Tom Yam Clear Soup @RM24.00++

Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - They do not sell tom yam in a big bowl. It is all comes in an individual bowl like this. The clear soup tomyam is not too spicy. It carries a little spicy it in after you have swallow it. It is quite appetizing.


Chicken Tom Yam Kung @RM22.00++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - A slightly different tom yam kung that I have tried in Thailand. This tom yam kung carries more coconut milk in it. So the spiciness in it is still not too hot because it has been covered by the coconut fragrance.


Green Curry Chicken @RM28.00++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - The strong coconut milk taste in it which is best to mix with your rice. It is not spicy at all. Usually, people misunderstand when the word curry in it and it must be spicy but for green curry. It is not spicy at all.


Prawn Tamarind Sauce @RM36.00++

Taste: 3/5

Overall: 3/5 - Chicken and prawn isn't that visible to be tasted. The flour used in cooking this egg is just too much.


Fern Leaf Shrimp Paste @RM17.00++

Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - A little over cooked but the taste is still acceptable.


Actually, I was having my primary schoolmate reunion in this restaurant. Not really a lot of people able to attend as expected but I am glad to have them to be there. We had a great time catching up each other. We do not need to have reunion all the time. Just once a year is good enough. If we can't even attend a once a year event, that kind of friendship is good to be forgotten.
Overall for this restaurant, their price written on their menu seems reasonable with average around RM50.00 and below. However, when the food was served, you will realized all their portion is really small. So I recommend if you are coming in this restaurant with just 2 pax so that you don't have to order the same thing twice.
People are here for the scenery. I have to tell you that their scenery is only visible during the day while at night is pitch dark. However, during the day, the hot burning sun is really not going to feel comfortable especially when this restaurant is not air-conditioned and you are required to wear smart casual! You will definitely not able to enjoy your lunch with such a condition. Therefore, if you are really here for the scenery, I would suggest you to forget about it.

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

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.
