Medina Thai Palace - Alor Setar

When in Alor Setar, kalau nak makan pure Thai food, biasanya I terus pegi Danok and makan kat Nur Laila Seafood. Tapi kadang2 tu malas la jugak, nak drive ke Bukit Kayu Hitam tu ok lagi..time nak masuk border tu yg malas..orang punya ramai kat checkpoint..nak beratur la..stress gak kadang2..

So alternative lain, dah jumpa satu kedai Thai kat Alor Setar yg sedap, tapi Nur Laila tetap dihatiku...teringat2 sambal belacan dia...

Hahaha..nak citer pasal kedai lain dok promote kedai lain pulak..

Ok, back to the main story, nama kedai ni Medina Thai Palace.. tukang masak semua mmg Siam mari..so rasa and feel mmg real..

Sedap sampai datang 2 kali..hehee...1st time with my office mates, diorang la recommend tempat ni..
Pastu next day datang dinner with my family pulak..:)

Tom Yum Seafood


Kerabu Mangga, dish yg paling win..my fav




Ikan masak steam asam

Hubby with ayah
Overall, Tom Yum dia tak mengecewakan, authentic Thai Tom Yum, ikan steam, to me rasa ok, hubby ckp terlalu masam sgt..:) yg penting ikan fresh..
yang paling best to me, Kerabu Mangga. Lain dari yg lain, ada crunchy2 skit, manis2 pedas..

Selera Pokok Pisang : Alor Setar

A place utk korang yg stay or bercuti kat Alor Setar.
Kedai makan yang cool..literally..kedai tepi sawah..kalau time makan tu angin punya kuat..nasi pun boleh melayang..heheeh

Apa yang best kat sini..of course la food dia..its authentic kampung food..semua sedap2 belaka..ikan bakar pun sedap..my hubby especially like the daging bakar..
Kalau ada musim tu, kadang2 dapat jugak telur ikan mayung...pergghhh memang rare...

Makanan best, view pun best, tambah pulak angin dari bendang..fuhhh..memang tak nak balik rasa..lepak berjam2 pun tak sedar..

Sangkaya - Coconut Ice Cream

Latest craze in town..latest ke.. tak la baru sangat..i je yg baru mencuba.. Hubby dah lama ajak nak try Sangkaya ni..First time dengar when they started out kat Jalan Alor..
Pastu ada kat Pasar Malam Bangsar pulak every Sunday.. dekat sikit dah..hmm tapi tak sampai2 jugak..
Tau2 bukak pulak satu branch kat Damansara Uptown..yeayyy...time ni harus la cuba..dekat yang amat.. :)

Apa yang craze sangat pasal Sangkaya ni..well, its coconut ice cream.memang rare la kan..mana ada orang jual aiskrim kelapa kat sini..
Apparently ice cream ni banyak jual kat Thailand nun..Malaysia ni yang baru nak in..

So for this Damansara outlet, kedai dia kecik je..half lot..its the same row as KK Supermart. Senang citer kalau tau Uptown Food Court tu, dari tangga food court tu dah nampak kedai ni kat seberang jalan.















So what did I ordered..
Their Signature la.. Its 4 scoops of coconut ice cream serve dalam bowl tempurung kelapa..at the bottom tu ada la isi-isi kelapa.. Then boleh choose 3 toppings - either corn flake, peanuts, grated coconut, red beans, nestum or corn.























Overall, memang sedap ice cream ni, memang betul2 terasa kelapa, its thick and creamy, tapi tak muak and overwhelming sangat rasa kelapa tu..
Tapi sapa yang allergy kelapa tu..sorry this is not ur place..

But for me, I am surely nuts about coconuts...heheeh.

ROA by Jovian..Manadonese Cuisine


It's Monday and its my day off..yeayy...Always wanted to try this place..
Hurrmm masalahnya cuti tak sama dgn orang..
What to do...only thing to do is to kidnap my good friend Kathy during lunch hour..heheeh
Office dia pun dekat je dgn Bangsar..

Roa by Jovian Mandagie.. Ada 2 location kedai ni.. the first is in Shah Alam which I think is bigger and ada live band on weekends.. but since tak kuasa nak ke Shah Alam tu..next best thing is their second outlet kat Bangsar..Jalan Telawi area..

First2 masuk je dah impress dengan deco dia..wow..memang nampak sangat Jovian ni detail orang nya..
Boleh nampak his attention to detail in fine little things.

Ok, about the food here.. masakan Manado..never had one before..selalunya restaurant  Indonesian kat sini either masakan padang or ayam penyet.

So here it's something new for me..



Manadonese Vocab.. Learn while you eat



Gorgeous Interior



Even the menu presentation is awesome



Alas meja dia pun menarik..ada Manadonese Vocab








Actually I datang sini twice..first time with Hubby, second dengan Kathy..hehehe that's why ada byk lauk..giler nak mkn byk2 ni 2 org je..
Marlin Woku


Ayam Tuturuga


Sapi Rica-Rica


Terung Saos Telur


Cumi Woku Belanga


Ayam Isi Buluh








Best dessert - Blueberry Nutella Cheese Cake..korang wajib try ni!!




My verdict - main dishes here tak lain tak bukan is nasi and lauk2..sesuai dengan tekak orang Melayu..:)
if you guys love hot and spicy food, this place is a must try..Boleh kata majoriti meals dia pedas2.. I like..

In my opinion, Mandonese food ni takdela beza sangat dengan Indonesian food lain even lebih kurang macam lauk2 orang Melayu pun ada..iyela kata serumpun kan..any beza sikit here and there.

Price wise, tengok tempat pun dah boleh bajet harga :).. One dish dlm RM12-RM15 camtu..tapi sedap and berbaloi..Dessert dia pun nampak semua sedap2..traditional Manadonese dessert pun ada tapi tak try sebab Nutella Cheesecake tu lagi nampak mengancam..hehehe
Memang terbaik..coming from somebody yang tak suka manis2 ni..the sweetness is just nice and yang penting tak memuakkan.. Two thumbs up!!!

My only complaints is the lauk2. Semua lauk2 dah di masak siap2..ala2 macam kita pergi makan kat kedai nasi campur la..hmmm..bayar mahal2 takkan tak dapat freshly cooked food kot..ok katala nak masak lauk org Manado ni lama and payah..at least reheat la lauk2 tu when serving it..barula tambah selera makan panas2..Even if you search the net..memang ramai dah complain about this..well Jovian if you are reading this please take action..reheating bukan susah sangat pun, masuk dalam microwave seminit dua dah siap..
