Last Sunday, its another meet up with Lekaa the MSU gal, this time we went to Empire Shopping Gallery again to have our dinner. It was such an unplanned outing ( again ) since I had just arrived in Shah Alam from my hometown that very evening too! AHA. Not to forget, Lekaa's friend, Amir also present at that time too, though I basically never knew him *awkwardness*
My verdict? Sad, too too sad to say, that Serai did not live up to my expectations. Even more, I was pretty much disappointed since me myself as a Kelantanese food lover + sweet tooth should have found joy dining in this elegant restaurant. Nonetheless, it was just so-so. Perhaps, I picked the wrong menu *trying to be optimistic here*
|Serai..finally after we failed to reach you last Ramadhan|
|the ever-craving Pavlova....which too unfortunate failed to impress me :(|
sad to say, but 1st impression is always vital for me :l
|my Nasi Ulam Ayam Bakar. either totally does not suit my palate or the meal is just tad bland?|
should have sticked to the safe Nasi Kerabu or even, Nasi Lemak hrmmmm.
RM 22 I think.
|Cendol. RM 7. Definitely cannot beat my hometown Cendol, how I miss it!|
|lekaa's bowl of chicken Tomyam, a bit too spicy for her though I found it rather good!|
|radiant huh? ;D|
( or was it the lighting? lol )
|Amir's Olio. Too dry, he said. RM 22.|
|Ice Kachang. RM 8.|
The price does seem a bit steep as predicted, but the point is, I wouldn't mind if the taste was great too! Like I say, mostly anything for food darling. Sigh. Should have gone to TGIF/Italiannies whatnot. But, it might not be my day and I failed to pick the right menu. I guess.
