After our scrumptious and most delightful Thai dinner here, my brother-in-law wanted to give a return treat and at the same time, take my sister-in-law, his sister, out before she left town.
He wanted to come here as he had not been here before and he chose a table by the window where it was brighter owing to the light coming in from the coffee shop section next door which, of course, meant that I would be able to take nicer photographs of the dishes served.
We placed our orders and everything was served very promptly – we did not have to wait very long. My brother-in-law had the grilled chicken chop with mushroom sauce…
– my missus’ favourite and yes, he thought it was very good.
His wife had the fish and chips…
…but she did not seem to enjoy it very much and she passed most of the bigger of the two chunks to the hubby and the other to my sister-in-law who was too full to handle that so she passed it to me. I thought it was quite nice actually – I don’t know what fish it was but if it was dory, it was not smelly nor did it have that jelly-like texture that I came across elsewhere and I would never want to order it since. For one thing, these people are related to those at the shop selling imported frozen seafood so they probably have access to some nicer fish compared to others who would just get their frozen fish fillet from any supermarket. The batter was slightly oily though – maybe they dropped it into the oil before it was hot enough.
They also ordered this bowl of Ceasar salad…
My visiting sister-in-law had the creamy cheese chicken chop…
…which, to my surprise, had rice by the side, not quite usual for a western dish but I guess this being a fusion place, one can expect the unexpected.
No, it wasn’t plain rice but nasi lemak, the same as what my missus got with her ayam penyet…
…which did not look clobbered/smashed at all. I had the nasi lemak when we were here last and I did not like the rice – it was nothing like any nasi lemak anywhere but this time around, we all thought it wasn’t too bad, not the lemak-est I have had but the taste was there. As for the ayam penyet, yes, my missus enjoyed it even though it was not hot and spicy enough for her – perhaps they should give an option to anyone ordering that dish, to tambah pedas or not.
As for me, I had the chicken parmigiana…
…and I loved it…or initially, that is. It tasted really nice but with all the cloyingly rich cheese, there was this what I would call the law of diminishing returns so towards the end, I was feeling kind of jelak…but I am sure it was just me. Those who are more into this kind of stuff would probably love it all the way.
I am not sure of the specific prices since I was not the one to pick up the tab but these items were all on their special promotions list and may range from between RM9.90 and RM12.90, if I am not mistaken and the total on the bill was only RM66.90. Not bad, eh?

The grilled chicken chop with mushroom sauce looks good and I would like to try the creamy cheese chicken chop but it looks more like chicken cutlet
Not too sure, can’t remember – I think I did see chop in the menu or was it just creamy cheese chicken? Let me check their Facebook page. Ah yes! You can click the link here – I am right!
Chicken chop with mushroom sauce, chicken leg and fish and chips! Now I am getting hungry, they all look delicious! 🙂
All very familiar dishes except the ayam penyet, eh? Very very much cheaper too than over at your side, am I right?
Yes. Tried chicken parmigiana once. It was good and cheesy but towards the end, I were stuff and “jelak”. Wahaha. too rich to handle but good for sharing with others.
Nice Western treat. everything looked delicious.
Oh? You too? Probably more for the younger lot, not the thing for “old” people like us. Hehehehehe!!!
With so many choices for the chicken, if me, i will have a hard time choosing which to eat as all looks yummy….
Yes, chicken is cheaper here, compared to lamb or beef. Quite a lot to choose from.
Not a fan of creamy stuff but to my observation, girls seem to like it more.
Oh? So you’ve been observing the girls a lot, eh? Hehehehehe!!!
Quite a feast here! The dishes all look very rich. I’m not sure I’d be able to finish any of them in one siting.
Especially when it is all so rich and creamy. I thought what I had was really very nice at first but after a while, I was not enjoying it as much. My sister-in-law felt that same way too. We were very full after the Thai dinner the night before…but with this one, we felt full, so bloated and the feeling was not quite the same.
All looks great. Though am not so much into Western dishes, still I find the grilled chicken chop with mushroom and sauce & caesar salad to my liking. Surprisingly, the price is a good deal for Western food.
That would be a good pick, not so rich and creamy with all that cheese…and too bad the batter for the fish was rather oily – would have been good too. Yes, p[rices are more affordable here compared to a lot of places.
All that for only RM66.90? Amazing! 🙂
5 persons, ordered 6 items. Not bad, eh? Everyone can eat…western! 😀
Price is really not bad… but I think I cannot finish the whole portion of any the above by myself.. you know me, western food, I eat very minimal unless too hungry…. hahaha
We old people are all the same. Muahahahahahaha!!!
Which one would I choose …. hmmm, the chicken parmigiana! I can eat a lot of cheese without feeling jelak 😉
I’m sure you can, you’re more used to this kind of cuisine. Somebody did say once that it will also depend on the quality of the cheeses used like the parmesan I had in NZ did not have that strong smell that puts some people off, the ones here.
All the food makes my tummy rumbles. hehe
This place is pork-free, I saw some Malay/Muslim chefs, bertudung-tudung and all in the kitchen.
