Minted Calamansi Soda (RM8.5)

Serai Iced Tea (RM10.5)
It’s actually pretty addictive. But there’s so many things in the drink, there isn’t much liquid in it.

Serai Tasting Platter (RM30)
6 sticks of satay (Beef, lamb or chicken), fried squid and make-it-yourself bruschetta.

_MG_3930

Deep Fried Crispy Brinjal with Serai Spice (Regular: RM13 , Large: RM21)
For someone like me, who hates brinjal (Yes, seriously), this is actually good. Like, REALLY good. Not much of the mushy, slimy gross taste of the brinjal either!

Mango Chicken (Regular: RM20 , Large: RM30)
It tasted and looked like fish. And soaking it in the sauce makes it pretty spicy. Be careful there.

Crispy Skinned Salmon (RM35)
Served with potato cakes, sautéed asparagus spears and crisp bread with roasted capsicum dip.

Nasi Kerabu (RM20)
Rice served with ayam percik, salted egg, ulam, solok lada and keropok ikan.
They use the real morning glory flowers to colour the rice too!

Sang Har Yin Yong (RM19)
Kuey teow and crispy mee hoon served in egg broth, complemented with fresh water prawns and vegetables.

_MG_3927

Steamed fish in lime sauce (Market Price)
This is really really good. Although, it’s really spicy due to the chilli. It’s a very Thai dish. Sour and Spicy.

_MG_4008

Pavlova (One of their selected cakes of the day)
Home baked. You can taste the lovee. (:

_MG_3996

Macaroons
Home baked too! Yummy.
The red one’s raspberry, the yellow’s salted egg (It’s good, try it before you criticsize it.), white one’s pine nuts, and the purple’s wildberries.

A Day Out @ Pavilion

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Food, friends, Photography

I woke up pretty late today.. Yet I still had time to watch cartoons while dressing up for a day out. Mum and I were at Pavilion today. Window shopped here and there.. Despite the numerous times I’ve been there and seeing people in really casual clothes, I still find the place ultra grand. Anyway, we were at Tangs, forgetting the price, we saw a skimpy top. When I saw the price tag, I nearly fainted. Mum said, even if it’s on 90% off, I wouldn’t pay for it. Haha. The price tag said RM1,010. No kidding. We lingered around, looking at bags and shoes, waiting for mifa. Malaysia’s International Fashion Alliance. Woo! They started late, but the fashion show was quite impressive!

Isn’t this gorgeous?

I wouldn’t want to wear that.. I’d look like I’m wearing pampers under.

After the fashion show, we went one level down to Serai Satay Bar to have lunch. They have this great concept of serving satay in a tall cup like container. Plus, you get to eat it in the afternoon! I seldom eat satay for lunch, and seldom see a place that serves satay during lunch hours..

Milky Bandung (RM5)
Very sweet carbonated drink. It’s totally different from the air bandung we often consume.

P1040948

Mini Pack Set A Chicken/Beef (RM9.60)
Yum yum! Taste fantastic. I could go without the peanut sauce too!

Soto Ayam (RM6.90)
I’m so used to my school canteen’s mee soto. I still prefer my school canteen’s. Anyway, this one is different, it has bergedel and nasi impit. Note: The bergedel has beef and potatoes.

P1040957

See the drink cup behind the soto ayam? That’s how they serve their satay. Not kidding yo!

Roti Jala (RM5.90)
3 pieces of roti jala with chicken curry. I had it cold, so it didn’t turn out nice. Sigh, photographer’s life. ):

Cucur Udang (RM5.90)
Yummy, it’s crunchy on the outside and soft inside. It contains a secret technique/ingredient, says the owner.

Grilled Banana with Sweetened Milk (RM4, with chocolate rice) (RM4.50 with cheese)
Lovely. Lovely. They taste superb when it’s hot! Ooh. I’d recommend the cheese one. You’d get a total different taste. It’s cheddar cheese. Yummy.. I love this so much!

In the evening, I went to DK Court for the stupidest project ever – Civics Project. I wanted to be the latest to arrive.. Yet, I’m the earliest. *sighs
