Private Kitchen, Damansara Uptown

Posted on 6 CommentsPosted in Food, Food Review, Photography

Last night , I had dinner at this little place behind Maybank (nearer to the construction area) at Uptown for dinner. I had a great dinner. It’s relatively new, so you guys should go check it out and give some of your feedback to the restaurant! (;

Herbal drink of the day – Barley with special herbs

_MG_1093

Love at First Sight Floral Tea (RM5)

_MG_1002

Long Spring Rolls (RM10)
Crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside . It’s a little oily on my opinion , but that’s what makes it’s so yummy . Isn’t it ?

_MG_1028

Shredded Chicken with Private Kitchen Special ‘Ma La’ Sauce (RM12)
Initially, I thought the cucumbers were the main ingredient accompanied by the shredded chicken. Apparently not ! Silly me .. Anyway , the shreded chicken is a little spicy and sour at the same time accompanied with pickled cucumbers like the ones you find in acars .

_MG_1019

Long Boiled Soup of the Day (RM6)
This boiled soup is definitely a must have to accompany the other dishes that you would be ordering. Firstly, it cleanses your palate , secondly, it just refreshens you and ready to move on to main dishes. Heads up for you guys, every bowl would contain different amount of meat and arrowhead.

Cantonese Chicken with Sand Ginger Sauce
I’ve tried many kinds of steamed chicken , this is relatively good. It’s different from the normal ‘pak cham kai’ you have at chicken rice stalls as it has more ginger to it. Honestly, I hate ginger. But for all you ginger-haters out there, go ahead and take a bite. Trust me, it’s so mild, you can’t even taste a tinsy bit of ginger.

Private Kitchen Stir Fried Prime Beef Fillet with Strawberry Pepper Sauce (RM28)
I had a shock when the lady served the dish and said it’s stir fried with STRAWBERRY pepper sauce. I thought she was joking. Goodness gracious me ! This is the best fusion version of stir fried black pepper sauce beef ! Juicy meat accompanied with strong pepper taste with a strawberry after taste. The strawberry doesn’t overpower the meat nor the pepper sauce. It was just divinely perfect .

_MG_1060

Private Kitchen Sautéed Chinese Chives with Dried Shrimp and Shredded Dried Cuttlefish (RM18)
Not many would enjoy this dish . It’s the Chinese Chives I tell you .. Also known as garlic chives, it’s quite an aquired taste especially to those who rarely eat this veggie.

_MG_1055

Pan Fried Pork Chop Lemongrass (RM25)
This is another fabulous dish . First bite’s the best, as you can instantly taste the lemongrass with a hint of citrus. I treat this like a snack, something you can just munch on as you’re in a conversation with your company.

_MG_1079

Deep Fried Pork Ribs with Special Salad Sauce (RM32)
Juicy tender pork ribs with a bold hint of mustard mayonnaise . I’m not too sure what is in the salad sauce, but it taste so delicious . End of discussion, you’re ordering this!

_MG_1073

Portugese-Style Fried Rice with Braised Pork Belly & Seafood (RM16)
Nothing big to shout about. It’s fried rice but ala portugese !

_MG_0997

A warm cosy atmosphere, perfect place to bring your parents for a Hong Kong cuisine dinner!

More Than Beer @ Craft Brews

Posted on 3 CommentsPosted in Food, Photography

What do you think of beer? I personally do not like beer. I’m a champagne person. Anyway, mum and I went to Craft Brews @ Mutiara Damansara. It’s opposite of Tesco to be exact. The place is quite big with many glass doors. Really comfy and abstract place with nice music. Apparently, Craft Brews is in Malaysia for the very first time.

Black and white, very zen.

Meanwhile, these are very earthly/beach-like.

P1070109

The bar. Ain’t the pipes cool? The colour made it stand out even more.

P1070110

A diagram on how beer is made is drawn on one side of the wall.

P1070134

P1070141

Bacon-wrapped Classic Roast Pork Skewers (RM16)
Note: Only available from 5pm onwards
These are lovely, There are total of 2 skewers, which is perfect with onion, capsicum and the roast pork.

P1070140

P1070147

Lemon Grass Butter Dory Fillet (RM26)
Served with capers and lemongrass infused in white wine and cream sauce reduction with wedges and coleslaw
Lovely main course. The lemon grass taste is obvious though the dory fillet is quite salty without the cream sauce. As for the wedges, I find them sweet. Apparently, these are US potatoes!

P1070158

P1070153

Honey Mustard Back Ribs and Tex-Mex Hickory BBQ Back Ribs (Combined) (RM35)
I love the honey mustard back ribs! Basically it’s cause the honey mustard sauce is sour as for the tex-mex, it’s too sweet for my liking.

P1070157

P1070171

Caribbean Spiced Chicken (RM18)
The sweetness of the peanut sauce overwhelmed the chicken meat. Lovely sandwich but I wouldn’t be able to finish the whole portion. O_O

Nice and warm with bits of pecan nuts. Yummy.

P1070191

Recommended to share, as this is quite boring after a while. But banana and chocolate always, ALWAYS go together. No? (:

Those are what they use to make the beer. One of them think the hops look like rabbit food. Haha!
