Well, guess I seldom walk through these alleys or it's been a while since I have done my shopping in 1U?
Either way, I was awed by the LOVELY, and I mean really lovely/awesome/wonderful/serene, etc...all the adjectives I could use to describe the settings of this little restaurant tucked away in the corner of the new wing on the ground floor.
It feels like a homely garden and to a certain extent, it even reminds me of the gardens in Babylon..LOL!
Even the lighting is just so soft and it all makes the ambience LOVELY! (this must be the highest number of times I have used the word Lovely in one article =P )
If you are interested in their designs/ensemble, you can choose to purchase their flowers, pots, vases, etc.
However, they don't come cheap...or at least to me =)
On the table where I was seated, there is lovely pot of lavenders
All the lovely atmosphere makes me go awwwww so much that I almost forgot about the food and anyway, the food along with the ambience, should make this a memorable meal, right?
The prices of their set lunches are reasonable; estimated around RM14.90++ onwards and each comes with a drink (choice of Iced Lemon tea or Coffee/Tea) and a soup.
The Iced Lemon tea came in a unique little jug like this. I thought it was something like the Fruit cocktail served in Winter Warmers when I saw these being served to other tables earlier.
The soup of the day was tomato broth
It was really diluted; even for a non-soup fan like myself and I find myself wondering, is this really tomato-based?
Next comes the food...
My classmate ordered the Black Pepper Chicken cutlet
It looks pretty good although the portion is just not proportionate to the size of the plate.
Taste-wise, I think he said it was on the average
As for my other classmate and me, we both ordered the Butter Lemon Fish which was basically dory fish fillets as expected
What we didn't expect was this...
We both asked for the sauce to be served separately and erm....this definitely does not look appetizing to me at all, nice ambience or not!
No amount of soft lighting is going to hide the fact that this looks like chunks of stuffs being served to your pet!
Needless to say, I was totally disappointed in the quality of the food served here...and even though the ambience is really nice, I doubt I will really go back for the food.
What say you?
