Spices of India @KLCC

This is my first ever Indian cuisine post after 5 years in writing food blog but definitely not my first time in eating them. I have to be honest and admit that the reason I am not writing any Indian cuisine is because this cuisine is not the most craved cuisine by the public. Recently I watched a movie known as The Hundred-Foot Journey played by the well-known Helen Mirren, The movie was a little old movie which was released in 2014 and it is about a war of cuisines between French and Indian which suddenly makes me crave so much about Indian food. So here I am at the Spice of India, KLCC. Some people says when you are new to the cuisine just go to the finest. So here I am!
Lassi is the traditional drink which you will find in the menu from the Punjab region which consists of Pakistan, India and Bangladesh. Original lassi is a savoury type of drink which added cumin in it. However, the locals hardly able to accept the flavor so a sweet lassi is rather popular here instead. The sweet lassi is cost RM13.00++ and the yellow color one is the mango lassi which cost RM14.00++. The mango lassi is too sourish to my liking. Sweet lassi is the best.
Mutton Briyani @RM52.00++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 5/5
Price: 1/5
Overall: 3/5 - Before even this bowl reach our table, we can already smell the fragrance from our table. I am not kidding. It is so fragrant which makes you start swallowing your own saliva. The moment this golden looking bowl of Briyani rice presented our table, we just can't wait to dig in. So I only managed to take a quick two shot on it without really adjusting the position or anything. The taste is expectedly delicious and you can really taste a lot of spices in your mouth activating all your taste bud. The mutton is so soft which you do not have much trouble chewing it. The sad thing is the price of RM52.00++ bowl of Briyani is just enough to feed for one person only. It is really super expensive! The mutton is really not much to be seen and you need to dig deep to find them.


Machli Tikka @RM55.00++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 2/5
Price: 1/5
Overall: 2/5 - Just 8 pieces of fish tandoori, it already cost RM55.00++. Outrageously expensive. I am truly stunned by their price and the portion of it. I suddenly feel like dining in a French restaurant. High price tag with small portion. No wonder they can make a movie for it. Anyway, as for the taste, it is like the ordinary tandoori chicken that you will have at the mamak stall. So not really that special for me especially with such a price tag.

Pista Kulfi @RM15.00++
Outlook: 2/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 3/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 2/5 - It is their homemade Indian style ice cream. This Indian ice cream is made by reducing the milk and with bare amount of cream or absolutely no cream, its easy to make and is beloved by everyone on the plate. Kesar Pista, Saffron and Pistachio is the most popular flavor on this. Saffron is the most expensive spices in the world and follows by vanilla beans. However, I never know saffron can be mixed in an ice cream. It tastes rather a little minty but it is not the type of ice cream I would crave about all time.

Despite their hefty price tag, one thing I like about an authentic Indian restaurant is the person who take the order is always never the waiter or waitress. It always must be either the owner or someone close to the owner who knows about all the dishes in the menu. I have to give credit to their professionalism in every finest detail in serving their patrons.

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.
