The Base Tea Bar, Kluang

A small town like Kluang, being stand out is really important especially when in a food and beverage business. However, it is totally a different case for The Base Tea Bar. As you can see from the picture above, they are located at an alley behind a row of shops which the road is the dead end.
I can't describe detail enough how secluded it is. You have to witness it by yourself. The parking here is extremely limited but you will have a plenty of parking space on Friday and Saturday where the open parking space which is reserved to Wisma Bunga will be opened to public.
The interior design is more into 90s. The rattan chairs and tables are pretty limited and low. It is not convenient for dining unless you are here for their tea only.
There is a staircase to lead to the first floor but they have no plan to expand yet despite limited seating available.
It is an air-conditioned environment but it can be pretty hot especially during the afternoon where the sun shines directly above your head.
Overall, I love their design which bring me warmth and maximum relaxation by emptying my mind and soul especially the flower fragrant spread throughout the whole cafe.
There is the pretty lady boss, Ms Carol who is one of the owner of this magnificent cafe. All the recipe is done by herself through trial and error.
Rose Brewed Pot @RM15.00 - Specially mixed and brewed with honey, dates and goji in it. It is a strong type of brew which gives you a good head start for the day.
Okonomiyaki Ham @RM18.00++

Taste: 3/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - Okonomiyaki is a Japanese pizza with ham as the main ingredient here. I should have order their octopus instead because this okonomiyaki is not very impressive. However, it is still edible.

BBQ Chicken Pizza @RM16.00

Taste: 4/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - Super thin crust with lots of cheese on top is a dream comes true for a pizza lover. I can finish the whole plate all by myself to be honest. I am not kidding and it is really that good.

Waffle Choco @RM10.00

Overall: 3/5 - Personally, I like a crispy waffle instead of a soft waffle like this. 

Chicken Wings @RM12.00

Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 4/5 - Delicious tender chicken wings with smokey taste on it. It is a must have and definitely kids favourite! Because my boy loves it a lot!

Overall, their menu is limited to light bites and tea only. There is no coffee and main course yet but according to Ms. Carol, they are still looking to it. Since they have just started their business early this year so keeping the momentum is the most important thing. After they got the common patrons, they will need to improvise new things to turn them into their loyal customers.

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

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.
