Dazzling Cafe @Midvalley Megamall

The spot of for Gardens Lifestyle Cafe has been replaced by a well known cafe originate from Taiwan.

Dazzling Cafe is the name.

As quoted by Dazzling Cafe, it has been named one of the most famous cafes in Taiwan. Hence it is commonly frequented by celebrities and socialites and has been crowned as “A Celebrity Hotspot.”

Not only famous for its media personalities, but it is also renowned for its chic and classy interior decor.

I do agree that this cafe looks elegant and classy yet trendy. I guessed it also attracts much attention from shoppers because it is located near the link bridge connecting both Midvalley Megamall and The Gardens Mall. The bunny ears chairs looked catchy.

Dazzling Cafe also serves All Day Breakfast

There wasn’t much choice of ‘main course’ dish. I was told that the Honey Toast is good and its their popular dessert here. Hmmm….that makes me think, most likely people come here for their dessert or during tea break.

We started off with Mentaiko Spaghetti with Cream Sauce RM29.90. It is a recommended dish shown on the menu. Mentaiko is Pollock Roe, tossed in the al-dente creamy spaghetti topped with nori seaweed. A few scallops were added to it. I like the crunchy roe texture on every bite of my spaghetti.

We also ordered a set of All day Breakfast. We chose Classic Big Breakfast RM25, which consist of grilled sausage, beef bacon, baked beans, sauteed mushrooms, grilled tomatoes, and scrambled eggs. The big breakfast was just alright. Quite normal I felt.

For the main course, we also ordered a Oven Roasted Whole Chicken Leg RM30.90. Roasted chicken paired with garlic cream spinach, sauteed mushroom. The chicken was tasty and tender. I do like the garlic cream spinach sauce eaten with the chicken. However I find the sauce abit salty.

Last but not least, we end our meal with the signature toast, Dazzling Classic Honey Toast RM20.90. Cubes of thick toast were stacked up in 2 layers, then topped with a scoop of  Häagen-Dazs ice cream and dripping strawberry sauce. The toast was slightly warm, a lil crust on the outer layer but fluffy and soft inside. I could taste the hint butter in it too. Was the yellow creamy thing, some sort of custard? Because it tasted like custard to me. 🙂 Anyway, the toast was very nice to be eaten with ice cream.

We wrapped up the meal with a lovely group photo taken here at Dazzling Cafe.

Verdict: Dazzling Cafe has nice ambiance. A nice dining place with friends and family. Food prices are on the high side. The only thing that I would love to re-visit is for the Honey Toast.

I like the plaque saying “Keep Calm & Drink Beer”.

Brunch @Coffee & Dreams, Seremban 2

I am not a heavy coffee drinker. But I love the fact that there are more coffee joints opened in Seremban 2. Currently there are 4 (did I miss out any?). 4 is definitely a small number compared to KL. Anyhow…quality is more important than quantity right? hehe….

I’ve just visited Coffee & Dreams located at Uptown Avenue, Seremban 2. The so-called happening place in Seremban 2 with restaurants and pubs.

I enjoyed having a cuppa aromatic coffee in a cosy environment.

“A coffee a day keeps the doctor away”

Lets see if Coffee & Dreams is ‘my cup of tea’.

Cakes, muffins, pudding and pastries are served here.

I also like the quiet and calm environment when I was there. Service was not bad too.

Selections of ‘hot drinks’ on their menu.

The current on going promotion for breakfast, lunch and tea time which I thought its a good deal.

The free glass of watermelon juice upon ordering lunch from their on going promotion.

Latte

Chocolate Mint

Cappuccino

Full Spaghetti with Ham – RM15.90

The spaghetti bolognese was alright but not memorable.

Chicken Chop

Skinless and boneless chicken chop was grilled to perfection and drizzled with fragrant black pepper sauce. Alongside with some greens. The chicken meat was tender and also tasty. Quite good.

I wanted to try their waffle. Therefore I went for original flavor;

Butter & Syrup Waffle – RM6.90

The waffle turn out to be quite nice. Not dry but fluffy.

Mille Crepe (Vanilla). There were actually few other flavors…but I chose to try the original flavor. Want to try the originality ma… hehe.. Unfortunately I felt that their mille crepe was just average. Too much cream I felt. A nice mille crepe shouldn’t look collapsing, right?

This “I dunno what name” chocolate cake was better.

Yay…I finally got the chance to taste this handmade pudding by Sweet Montage. There were few other flavors, but I chose Salted Gula Melaka. Price at RM7.90 for a small jar… a lil pricey?? But I love everything from the packaging, the taste and the texture. Wobbly texture and wasn’t too sweet. Like a combination of custard & tau fu fah 🙂

Verdict: If you notices… I actually visited Coffee & Dreams on 2 different occasions. First round was for drinks and cakes…2nd round to sample the food. Eventually the drinks (coffee) tasted better on my 2nd visit… first visit made me felt that the coffee taste was rather mild. I hope they will be more consistent in brewing their coffee. Will definitely return for more coffee and food 😉

Lunch @ Coffee Chemistry Signature, First Subang Mall

2-Course Western Meal: Grilled Salmon Steak, Classic Roasted Lamb Shoulder, OR More + Dessert at Coffee Chemistry Signature, First Subang Mall for 2 (RM39).

Managed to grab this deal from Groupon.

Alex and I decided to redeem the coupon to settle our lunch.

Coffee Chemistry Signature is available at First Subang Mall since January 2011. If I’m not mistaken, before this..they were located at Sunway Giza.

Since their name come with the word ‘Coffee’, so I assume they served good quality coffee. And I also read several positive reviews about their coffee.

This deal does not come with drinks. Therefore we browse through the menu serving varieties of fusion food and drinks, we ordered a drink for ourselves.

At the entrance of Coffee Chemistry Signature.

Its quite obvious as you come up from the escalator. Its on your right hand side.

Counter where barristers prepares the drinks.

I noticed that their ceiling is quite nice, with decorative lights.

♥ with love

Alex ordered Ice Lemon Tea. The ice lemon tea that I usually order has strong tea taste but lack of lemon taste. Eventually, over here its the other way round. Not much of tea taste, but strong flavors of lemon. Which I think its not bad also la…

I ordered a cuppa Cafe’ Mocha – RM8.50 for myself. Rich and aromatic drink with nice coffee art.

Happily admiring my drink. But feel so ‘sayang’ to damage the art…. @_@

For the main course, there were total of 5 choices applicable for Groupon user.

I chose Grilled Salmon Steak, served with mashed potato and vegetables. The yellow gravy that you saw on plate is not oil but its maltaise sauce. Good match with the salmon. Unfortunately I felt that my salmon is slightly overcooked. But I do like their mashed potato. Very smooth and buttery.

Alex chose Grilled Chicken Chop served with homemade mushroom sauce, mashed potatoes and vegetables. I like the mushroom sauce but not the chicken. I find it slightly overcooked as well. Because the meat is abit dry.

For dessert, it comes with Brownie in ice cream. The brownie is warm and moist. It tasted great together with vanilla ice cream.

And Affogato. Espresso topped with vanilla ice cream. This is absolutely good for coffee lovers. Rich flavors which gives you the ‘umhhppp’!!

Verdict : I would love to return for their coffee! ^_^

Dinner @ Nando’s , USJ Taipan Subang Jaya

Greeting Happy New Year to everyone here. How was your new year? Hope everything is fine.

……my first post for year 2012……

Checking in Nando’s USJ Taipan, a busy commercial area.

Nando’s at USJ Taipan is a new outlet. Usually you will locate one at shopping malls…which is rather common. This stand alone Nando’s has good ambiance and its spacious too. How about the food quality and service? Well, its not bad too. The food served has a good presentation with sufficient ingredients and flavors. Well…I’ll leave it to you to judge through the photos  ^^

“Hence, to my gf Ashley…I know lately you are quite stressful, upset and quite disappointed. Perhaps, this post might brighten up your day….hehehe…(her favorite food after all)…”

The exterior looking pretty attractive.

The lowered wooden platform to place a row of Nando’s Peri Peri sauce. What a creative idea!

a promising deal….

All Nando’s Chicken are marinated for 24 hours in their secret sauce until the flavor goes right through to the bone. They are then flame-grilled and basted with your choice of Nando’s Peri-Peri sauce.

Everybody loves Nando’s…

Nando’s authentic Peri Peri, also known as the African Bird’s Eye Chili. Which is your favorite? I like Garlic Peri-Peri Sauce.

1/4 Chicken with 2 sidelines (Mediterranean Rice & Old Style Chips)  – RM15.90

1/4 Chicken with 2 sidelines (Coleslaw & Peri Chips)  – RM15.90

Based on the Peri-o-meter, choose your desired flavor for the chicken. Ranging from Lemon & Herb(for beginners), Mild Peri-Peri (a little warmer-for those looking for more adventure), Hot Peri-Peri (if you really want to spice things up) and Extra Hot Peri-Peri (Evoke tears of joy for serious chili lovers).

Lighten Up Chocolate Cake – RM8.90.

Look at the thick and rich chocolate slice. Its a good choice for chocolate lovers (referring to myself).

I’m giving a good score for this Nando’s outlet. Hopefully my next visit won’t be disappointing .
