Skillet@163, Fraser Place

Skillet @163 has been awarded as the best European restaurant in 2015 by TimeOut Kuala Lumpur. They successfully outclassed Albion KL, Mercat Barcelona Gastrobar, Soleil and Yeast Bistronomy which are all worthy opponents. For your information, European cuisine means food from all around Europe including Eastern Europe and Scandinavian countries.
They just come onto scene last year by taking over Mediteca at Fraser Place and managed to secure everyone's heart to secure the award. This fine dining restaurant does provide smoking section for their smoking patrons.
They do have second floor which is opened when they have a lot of customers or special event only. This is also the first time for my boy to dine in a fine dining western restaurant.
They do give complimentary appetizer (above), a mocktail and a creme brulee as our dessert too. We did not order a set lunch but somehow we received all these which makes me wondering how do they determine to serve these. I have been to some restaurants giving complimentary appetizer, bread or mocktail but this is the first restaurant that serves complimentary dessert too. All of them were really delicious.
Soup of the day @RM18.87++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - Smooth, creamy and with full of mushroom fragrance in it. Not to forget the exciting mushroom bits in it to give me a little chewing job to do. It was a really good soup.


Baked Chicken Satay Penne @RM33.02++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - I love this daring combination by combining one of our Malaysian favourite local food, satay together with baked cheese penne. The satay was really delicious, they should have serve at least 3 instead of just one. While the penne is very fragrant which comes from the cheese and a little spiciness in it. 

Morrocan Spiced Chicken @RM31.14++
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 2/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 2/5 - It was a little too dry for me and it is a breast meat which means hard to chew. I do not really like this dish.

You might have noticed with the weird pricing which I wrote based on the receipt I got. Usually this kind of pricing is inclusive of GST and service charge. However according to my receipt, it was not. The menu is definitely not showing that kind of price tag but I cannot remember what is the exact price stated on their menu. I only noticed it when I started to write this post. If you are happened to dine here, please take extra note on their receipt. Overall, this restaurant does serve a decent food and provide an absolutely friendly service. Just that I might have ordered the wrong food for my taste.

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.
