Afternoon Tea

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A truly elegant and refined space for a leisurely afternoon spent partaking in the time-honored ritual of Afternoon Tea. Indulging ourselves in three elegant tiers of freshly baked scones, petite gourmet sandwiches, quiches, pies and desserts accompanied with a perfectly-steeped pot of The Ritz-Carlton, Kuala Lumpur Blend. The tea was so nice that I lost count of  the number of cups I drank.

The ambience is enhanced by a quartet that plays soothing melodies.

Sarawak Laksa – Restoran Aunty Christina Laksa

37170163870_7f90eba26b_o

Aunty Christina was only operating a small stall inside a Kopitiam in Lucky Garden in Bangsar for many decades and I have eaten her Sarawak Laksa many times already.

Only recently she moved her business to her own premises in Sea Park which I finally got a chance to locate her restaurant and once again eating her awesome Sarawak Laksa. The menu was pretty simple and another thing that caught my eyes was the special dish of Hakka Abacus Seeds which I could not resist to make an order. Being a Hakka myself how can I not eat them. The Abacus was just as awesome and full of flavors.

I believe this is a closely knitted family business as everyone was so friendly and busy at the same time. I managed to get a glimpse of Aunty Christina in the kitchen busy preparing and cooking her dishes. All hands on by herself.

I need to taste all in one go so I ordered the platter which consist of Deep Fried Chicken, Stuffed Sotong and Sambal Udang.

Once a while it’s good to move away from the original Malay Nasi Lemak and go to the Chinese version of Nasi Lemak.

Brilliant Nasi Lemak house started in Kepong back in July 2010. Over the years, they have expanded their business to have branches in Puchong, Damansara Utama and Kota Damansara. Bukit Tinggi in Klang was opened in Oct 2015. Their nasi lemak set is their best seller with side order choice of pork rendang, chicken nyonya, stuffed squid and shrimp. Their sambal is tasty, moist, spicy and with nicely diced onions in them.

Drowning the white rice with thick black sauce is a common thing for Klangites to do when eating Chicken Rice.

Super famous butter milk chicken

Crispy fried pieces of chicken are generously doused with a creamy and delicious butter & milk gravy – perfect with a bit of rice and chopped chilli padi.

The main reason why we’re here is because of this menu. Gold Chilli Butter Milk Chicken here have a reasonable portion sizes. Personally I like how consistent the condensed buttermilk sauce and the sweet taste it produce. They added a little curry leaves and chilies to give it a little kick to the sweet buttery sauce.
