Well the Sumbs is one of them.
Located in Seksyen 13, Shah Alam, to get here is pretty easy, its the area belakang Tesco Extra (old Makro). Jalan yang dulu leads to Batu Tiga race track, skang dah jadi row of shops. There's also Goodhope Hotel nearby as landmark.
When we got there, the place is packed. Wow business is good.... Had to put our name on the wait list. Waited around 20 mins till we get our table. The restaurant itself is quite small, only about 8 tables inside and a few outdoor (lucky they're on a corner lot)..Also saw the JJCM plaque..so they've been here. Patut la ramai orang..
|On the waiting list :(|
On to the food..presentation memang menarik, unique and one of a kind..everything is served in a box.
senang takyah basuh pinggan..hehehe
We had the chicken milanese - portion is big, but frankly it's sort of a variation of chicken chop, so nothing to shout about.
Heard the dendeng is famous here, tapi tak try nasi dengan dendeng pulak, want to try something different, so had the dendeng calzone - ala2 macam karipap gergasi inti daging dendeng,...and its purely the daging dendeng and cheese..but the pastry is quite thick. Tak garing sangat and lama2 jadi muak la.
For pasta had the spicy chef - memang pedas, ala2 home cooked mee goreng pedas, tapi ni spaghetti la.
Carbonara pun not bad, thick and creamy sauce tapi tak la terlalu sangat sampai muak.
Pasta ala sumbs pun spicy jugak, berkuah skit, macam mee goreng basah...:) but its all good way.
To end all up, desserts..That's what brought us here in the first place.
First - chocolate moist cake : frankly its nothing magical or wonderful..to be honest cake is a bit dry.. maybe sebab dok dalam chiller kot. But the macaron is nice..its not too sweet, filling dia masam2 sikit so tak rasa kemanisan macaron to..sedap..
Second - churros. For those yang tak tau churros is a spanish dessert..its fried dough pastry..can be eaten alone or in this case dipped in chocolate..Marvellous...agak susah gak la nak jumpa churros ni.
The churros in my opinion kalau makan camtu jer rasa telur tu quite overpowering, tapi tak la teruk sangat, bila dah dip dengan chocolate memang superb..
Third - Eclair with creme patisserie. Forgot to snap the pics..hehehe anyway its like chocolate eclairs, tapi ni cream fillings and ada colourful ganache on top...chehhh..ala2 masterchef pulak.. :)
As a whole the main dishes here is good, nothing outstanding, but sort of a place where you can order anything on the menu and won't get disappointed. Price wise is quite reasonable too.
Part desserts yang kecewa skit..knowing it was by the masterchef Fazley..its just not what i expected.
I had better chocolate cake elsewhere and the price pun agak melampau RM14.90 for a slice..maybe cause of the macaron on top kot.
