Bumbu Desa @ The Curve

Bumbu Desa, one of the Indonesia's leading restaurant is now here @ The Curve!

Was at The Curve to meet one of my friend for lunch last Sunday. We were strolling down "The Street" and the crowd at Bumbu Desa caught my attention!

Took a quick glance and saw a notice stand placed near the food display island. It indicates that the restaurant served ala carte dishes and it's not a buffet system.

I guess the food displayed at the island cabinets has given patrons the wrong idea that it is a buffet. As for me, the restaurant is kinda like a "medium to high end" mixed rice restaurant to me. Am pleased with their dishes and I revisited the restaurant the next day itself.

Bumbu Desa @ The Curve
Bumbu desa serves Sunda (Western Javanese), Padang & Melayu Cuisine. Dishes are displayed on an island, with a small indication card with a brief description of the dish. Picks your favorite/preferred dish and after frying/cooking or reheating, food will be served shortly.

Nasi Lewit
Traditional Sunda steamed rice (steamed with coconut milk and anchovies) and then served with fried anchovies. Appetizing!

Ayam Pop @ RM 7.90
Ayam Pop, one of the chicken dish believed to be originated from Padang, Indonesia. A dual process dish, the chicken was first steamed and then sauteed.
I have ordered another chicken dish- Ayam Bumbu Desa but missed taking picture of it.

Like the tenderness of the chicken, taste wise- pleasing!

Fried Talapia @ RM 16.90
Well marinated deep fried talapia. Crispy and crusty and yet juicy! Goes well with the sambal paste!

Vege @ RM 4.90

Kailan @ RM 4.90

Gulai Daun Singkong @ RM 4.90
Simmered kale leaf in coconut milk with and spice. Not as appealing as described.

Paku Pakis @ RM 4.90
The word "Paku pakis" always reminds me of the plant we used to learn during in school. Gulai Paku, also sometimes known as Gulai Pakis is a vegetable dish that originated from the Minangkabau ethnic, Indonesia.
Gulai Paku Pakis served in sweet and sourish broth, tasted ordinary.

Chilli paste @ RM 2.50
My favorite of all!! Ended up with red and thicker lips after this!

Cucumber Ice @ RM 5.90
Blended ice cucumber with lime juice, a popular drink among the Achehs. A little cooling effect for me after the meal.

Nothing extraordinary, just another dining experience to share. Am not concluding anything.... but will definitely return (but not so soon) to try other dishes! Food displayed like a buffet spread is so tempting! You might be attracted too.....

Pastis Cafe @ The Gardens

Tea Set for lunch and cakes as desserts after dinner!

Pastis @ The Gardens seems crowded during lunch hour. It raises our desire to know more about this cafe and we decided to have our lunch there. Since, my colleague and I were quite full, we had the teas set for lunch.

Pastis @ The Gardens

Afternoon Tea Set for 2 @ RM 48.90

Afternoon Tea Set for 2 comes with:

2 pcs Tomato Bruschetta
2 pcs Toasted Salmon Sandwich
2 pcs Mini Mushroom Quiche
2 pcs Scones served with cream & jam
2 pcs Cake Sampler
1 Chocolate Mousse Sampler
1 Tiramisu Sample 2 cups of coffee/tea served with biscuits

Nothing so special about it. Not pleasing either.... Within the week itself, my colleagues and I were there for a drink and have a go for their cakes as dessert.

Apricot Crepe Cake 50% Promo @ RM 6.95
Tasted like my failed experiment after few hours of war in the kitchen !!!

Marble Cheesecake @ RM 11.90

Pastis Hot Chocolate Lava Cake with Ice Cream @ RM 12.90

The other two pieces of cake were neither very good not very bad. I have not try their main course and lunch sets am not grading it. In all probability, I will no revisit....

But then again, I welcome suggestions... or tell me about your Pastis experience!! Convince me...
