Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Food, Food Review, Photography

Calling all oyster fans ! Better keep your September free for the oyster promotion at Victoria Station outlets ! You guys have to go for the promo , man .. It’s SO WORTH IT . ._. I really sound like a tv commercial .. BUT REALLY. Compare the prices from the menu and the promo menu .. The promo is almost half the price ! Seriously, guys .

GO HAVE SOME IMPORTED US OYSTERS DURING THE MONTH OF SEPTEMBER ^^

Kaki Furai (RM23.90 for 6, RM47.80 for 12)
Deep fried . They’re so, so yummy .. Even with Victoria Station’s special homemade sauce, it’s so, so good .

Baked Rock Oysters (RM23.90 for 6, RM47.80 for 12)
A shell full of oyster accompanied with good cheddar and smoked chicken .

Ostriche Arracanate (RM23.90 for 6, RM47.80 for 12)
Don’t be mistaken , it’s not ostrich meat (Quite obvious, with the photo above.) . It’s oysters in French . Lovely rock oysters cooked with olive oil, parsley and bread crumbs .

Meep . Meep meep . :3 Sorry, I just had to . It just looks so adorable . 😛

Caesar Salad with extra topping of salmon.
This is lovely , but it’s so common, it’s just another Caesar Salad.
S: RM9.90++, M: RM12.90++, L: RM14.90++
+Smoke Salmon: RM11.90++
+Australian Beef Salami: RM3.90++ 

Wild Mushroom Soup (S: RM8.90++ , L: RM10.90++)
It’s probably one of the best things I had here. It’s really wild mushroom soup, not one of those canned Campell soups or the instant packets.

That’s my crepe on the pan!

Mushroom and Cream Crepe (RM22.90++)
Lovely. Probably it’s just me, I loveee mushrooms !

Australian Rib Eye (RM40.90++)
For that price .. NO . And the amount of fats.. Oh gosh, I’d rather have something else .

The most pathetic Carbonara I’ve ever seen. Does it even look like a Carbonara? (S:RM16.90++ L:RM25.90++)

Spanish Paella in makin’!

Spanish Paella (RM22.90++)
This is something really worth the price. It’s so refreshing and the rice was just al dente. Beautiful.

White Chocolate Cheese Cake (RM7.90++)

 

Blueberry Crepe with Strawberry topping and 2 scoops of Caramel Häagen-Dazs Ice cream (RM24.90++)
Without the ice cream, it would only cost you RM14.90++
Yummy yummy . But I find the crepe gets hard a lil’ too fast .. Something just doesn’t feel right.

I didn’t take pictures of their Rosti , but they are GOOD .
Plain Rosti (RM8.90++)
Toppings
Smoked Salmon (RM11.90++)
Cheddar Cheese (RM6.90++)
Fried Egg (RM2++)
Any sausage (RM10.90++)
Sauteed Mushrooms (RM10.90++)
Homemade Beef Meatballs In Fresh Mixed Berries Sauce  (RM12.50++)
When we were leaving, I saw the couple in front of us paying about RM290 ! Goodness gracious me! I don’t think it’s worth your money to come here to had a full meal! It’s just too costly.

Beef Carpaccio
This was one of their specials of the week . It’s different every week , so be sure to come back to have a taste of the chef’s creativity with food !

_MG_6414

Iberian Beer Cecina (RM19.50) (right) La Petute Moderne (RM16.50) (left)
Well , for the Iberian Beef Cecina , the air dried beef loin was a little on the dry side, but I definitely love the capsicum concassé .
The La Petute Moderne on the other hand , the texture of the chicken was almost like eating tuna , but chicken form . Really ! Quite interesting, especially with avocado on top and caramelized onions below it .

_MG_6417

_MG_6423

Poutine Cheek (RM26)
French fries with braised beef cheek (6 hours of braising!!)  with truffle oil , and cheese on top .
This is a very filling bowl of fries . It can be a dinner meal for anyone to be honest, or shared among a table of 2 or 4 .. But trust me, it’s very filling, it’s so delicious , the beef cheeks just melts into your mouth .

_MG_6439

Emilia’s Tagliatelle al Duck Ragu (RM28.50)
The roast duck was fantastic , but the duck cooked with the pasta was a little dry . Other than that, this is a very interesting dish . Quite unusual and worth trying out .

Overall , Petite Millie is worth a go , especially for those who haven’t been to fine dining, this would be a nice introduction to fine dining and French food .

Urban @ Istana Hotel

Posted on 9 CommentsPosted in Food, Photography

Last Friday I was at Urban, Istana Hotel for dinner menu review(during lunch! how odd? oh well, mum didn’t want to sit through the traffic at night) . It was such a rainy day ! I kept having this thinking that the heaven wants to remind us about the tsunami that happened .. Everything will be okay, Japan.

1 good reason to go to Urban for dinner : Everything’s nett priced so you can skip the rough calculations before ordering. 😀
