The garden slug @ Telok Kurau
This is our 2nd visit to this place and i must say we were disappointed... Located at quite a remote area in telok kurau's bright centre, it was quite a search the first time round. The staffs were friendlier the first time. I'm not sure, perhaps the not-up-to-expectations food spoils it all.
Carrot pumpkin ginger soup with almonds bits and peppermint leafs. The ginger taste was omg so strong.
Dory Fillet. I wouldn't say its horrible, but it really left a bad impression. The fish itself wasn't the problem. The freshness and texture was decent, just that the whole fish had this burnt smell and taste. The fish wasn't burnt though, it's just that it taste burnt, probably the grills they used are so burnt such that the food taste of them. Jeez.
The mash potato is worth mentioning as it's pretty tasty with a nice combination of butter. I would say it's one of the best I've tried.
Portobello vegetarian burger. Ok, first off, the potatoes patty was burnt at the side, pretty gross out. 2ndly, the portobello mushroom was undercooked; the flavors of the mushroom wasn't brought out as a result. We had to ask the cook to grill it more.
There is celery and carrots as sides, both raw.
Spent around $20 per person. Their main attractions are most likely their mixed grills, which from what I heard and read was not too bad. Our first visit we had lamb chop and it left quite a good impression. Perhaps, healthier choices here are not that much recommended then. Their slogan is "eat drink don't think", sorry lor i think too much and don't really agree with you on that.
