Very fierce thumbs up!@Fiercer, Publika Solaris Dutamas

image

I had passed by this restaurant on the way out of Publika several times, and for the split few seconds taking notice of its name, I wondered what food they served…but never really got the gear on to visit it….until my friend brought me there after sharing all his good indian food foodieventure experiences there….and no regrets then on! I’ve just learnt that the original outlet, known as Fierce is in Bangsar and this sister outlet is supposedly most upclass with a few new additions to its menu.

The contemporary decor and music, and their bar section did not really match the feel of indian food, rather more of western or fusion. And the menu came in a binded plastic laminated form, which did not appear to match its ambience. Nonetheless, all those didn’t matter as the food was mindblowingly amazing!

This spicylicious ladyfingers with potatoes was so flavourful and nicely cooked, not overly softened. Perfect with naan! Oh ya, full of wok hei too!

image

The grilled chunks of goat’s cheese (yes, it was a little guilty having too many pieces of ’em!) but it tasted so much more like tofu than cheese. Nicely done! The ooopph factor was even more, once the butter chicken gravy was added in.

image

The butter chicken was cooked with tender chicken fillet chunks, and the gravy was amazing..if not for my conscience telling me at the back of my mind of the amount of ghee used to make the gravy, i would have licked the bowl clean!

The naans here were amazing to me too! Thin, crunchy yet retained slight fluffiness, nice aroma of the burnt edges, yums yums yums!

The estimated cost for naan and 2-3 dishes for 2-3 pax, would be about RM50-60. Quite decently priced for such good quality food. Worthy visit for those who want affordably priced indian food but taste awesome as well! I will surely be back again for more Fiercer foodieventures! FIERCE THUMBS UP TO YOU!

No more Foodpanda delivery@Wendy’s at home

image

Lazy night. With a blank mind. Saw the ad on foodpanda on FB and logged on the website to have a look. Knowing there was a Wendy’s nearby, I decided to try out Foodpanda’s service for the first time and chose Wendy’s for dinner.

The delivery took slightly more than an hour to arrive. GOSH. For a place that is so near my house.

Sadly, the quality of the food was the worst I had ever seen in any food delivery services. Not sure where it went wrong, the service provider or Wendy’s,  but there wasn’t any sauces or straws given, my Coke was spilled and….

The fries…were like withered weeds. Soggy, tasteless and I couldn’t eat more than few sticks.

The beef burger, was the tiniest I have ever seen. Soggy, cold, bleh.

The best among the 3 mains were the nuggets, even those were cold, hardened and thankfully the taste was rather bearable.

Total damage was RM 30 over.

All I can say is…I am never trying Foodpanda ever again and probably not in a long time for Wendy’s. McDs delivery time is faster, and even though the fries became soggy but never to the level like this one. Even KFC beefed up their delivery services, given good quality packagings to keep their fried chicken warm and shorter delivery time too.

Booooooo…..

Stellar home cooked food that is not from mom!@Chef Tan’s crib

image

Greeted by the terrible haze upon reaching KL. Cough cough cough, welcome back.

image

When we arrived, chef Tan was almost done with her cooking. Totally pampered. All we did was help her serve and get our tummy juices boiling! Her dishes looked and smelled absolutely delicious. Guess which was my plate?:) My friends should know this within a glance haha.

 

image

Nope. Chef Tan did not buy this from a restaurant, but cooked it from scratch. One of the best home cooked butter chicken dishes I had ever eaten. Cooked with a whole lotta love. The chicken fillets were fresh, and each piece was coated with a thin batter to add texture and flavour, absorbing in all the buttery goodness. If there wasn’t anyone watching and I am eating this alone at home, me, myself and I would have no problem at all whacking every single piece of it.

image

Nope. This was also not bought by Chef Tan from Duck King, although it looked remarkably similar. I was amazed that she cooked it, and yes.. with a whole lotta love too! The fried chopped leaves were fried to perfection and kept warm in the oven until serving time. The vegs were also cooked just about right, not too soggy and not too hard. YUMMMMMMMMS.

image

Assam squid by Chef Tan, cooked following a recipe adopted from an online cooking site. Say, what?! From the way the squid slices looked, you could tell that it was home cooked. Restaurants would never bother to ensure those squids looking so pretty and evenly sliced. They were also nicely cooked, not too chewy and the spiciness from the assam gravy was perfect. I waved an invisible white flag, surrendering to the almighty home cook chef!

image

This home cooked dinner party ended sweet! The best part about eating fruits at home, you are well assured that the host would serve you nicely ripened and sweet fruits, unlike the crappy overpriced ones you get in Chinese restaurants, usually soaked in sugar water and thrown in with a ton of ice cubes.

image

Oops! The sweetness didn’t just end there! Sweetness factor just went up to a whole new level. Chocolates from a famous locally made chocolate farm brand in Australia, “Kitchen Garden”, known for its quirky and unique combination of flavours, using only home grown, hand picked produce and hand crafted.

When I first saw “White chocolate with figs and fennel seed”, I paused and looked again. Fennel seeds? Wah. Must try….

Outcome? Hmmm..acquired taste. The first bite was “feels like eating dhall chocolate”. The fennel seeds were a little overpowering for my liking and I guess I am boring when it comes to chocolate because I love them being plain jane.

image

The next Kitchen Garden chocolate test! Hazelnut chocolate with fiery peppers. Looked pretty normal looking, unlike the earlier white one, but THIS chocolate, is the ideal chocolate to have, if you ever get yourself stranded in a snowy mountain, or trapped in the cold. One piece, would leave your throat burning up like drinking a hot, spicy, peppery soup. Pee poo pee poo! Fiery alert!

image

Oh yes.. yes… not to forget the utmost important factor for a great dinner, wine! Courtesy of the connoisseur chic, who starting drinking since 2 pm. Not sure if she was ENTIRELY sober. haha. We opened a Cloudy Bay Pinot Noir (cannot go wrong with that), and proceeded on with a pinotage. My first time drinking, medium-bodied, with some berries notes and vanilla. Pretty decent and easy drinking, developed more after airing a while.

image

We were, yes… a litttttttle goner, by the 3rd bottle. struggled to finish the last quarter. We should have started with this first, and end with the Pinotage or the Cloudy Bay. The palate was rather bland with this one, but it became better after leaving to breathe for a while. Perhaps, it may also be influenced by us drinking the other two first, and along the way, we were eating those funky chocolates.

It was an awesome night, of catching up, with great food, great drinks, great friends. The rest of us were feeling a little stressed now, cooking to serve at that quality, ain’t easy! Better start practicing now!
