Flora Terrace @ Hampshire Place

Celebrated the youngest family member in our family 18th birthday's here last week.
My baby sister is finally turning 18! 
Oh how time flies. She'll always be my baby sister no matter what lol.
That chubby little one running around and make friends everywhere she goes. Definitely an outgoing one! 


It was a small family and friends dinner last week here at the Flora Terrace, Hampshire Place.



I really love the theme of this restaurant. Flowers hanging down from the ceiling, felt like I'm in some fairy tale secret enchanted garden as I entered. Loving the spacious and cozy ambiance too. Perfect for a romantic dinner or to host a special event here! Didn't know such lovely place in KL exists! 



Oh how I love this place! Even their furniture and decorations are exquisite 




Lovely couple at the private section for a romantic dinner

The hubs and the birthday girl! 



Lovely couple alert! 


Their menu offered asian fusion list of food.










For starters we had,



1. Mushroom Cappuccino Soup with Prawn-flavored Chawanmushi (RM25)


A creamy mushroom soup with prawn-flavored chawanmushi-like base.


2. Cream of Pumpkin Soup with Almond Flake and Green Mussel (RM20)



3. Smoked Salmon Caesar Salad (RM22)


Loving the salad and generous amount of salmon they served.




And here come the mains,








4. Honey-Glazed Slow-Cooked Norwegian Salmon Served with linguini pesto, mango salsa and tossed mixed salad. (RM40)


They recommended this pasta as their star dish. It is pretty normal, pasta is a little soggy and tasteless.
Nothing to shout about. Or maybe it's just me, linguini is just not my thing.


5. Grilled Spring Chicken (RM36)


With creamy polenta and parmesan, baby spinach sauttéed with garlic and onion, assorted vegetables, served with honey mustard sauce.


6. Grilled Rib-Eye Steak (RM60)


200 gram of rib eye steak marinated with local spices, grilled and served with creamy mashed sweet potatoes, arugula salad with pine nuts and shaved parmesan, and spicy belacan green chili sauce on the side. Chef's favorite.



Some add-on side dishes,

7. Smoked Salmon Panini (RM22)


Smoked salmon, lettuce, tomato, cheese and egg topped with caramelized onion, served on panini bread, accompanied by potato wedges and mixed salad.

Absolutely loving this dish! Everything together is just heaven! Not forgetting because salmon is my fav 

8. Flora Platter (RM50)


Flora spring roll, potato skin, crispy pie tee, cheese finger and chicken wings, served with spicy BBQ Sauce.


Food was overall good and satisfying!


After the dinner, well of course is the cake cutting candles blowing time!

Miam Miam @ One Utama

First try at Miam Miam last month with my food buddies again! After the hype was over. Late! I know! It is located at One Utama (old wing). You may see it when you park at their outdoor car park. Was there for a brunch session, crowd was okay, service was moderate, food was damn super slow despite the little crowd. But the food was good so it's worth the wait. I guess? Judge it for yourself after this post.





Very high-tech and fast way of taking down orders. But food and beverage still served pretty slow :/






Your classic Iced-lemon tea.




Okay this drink below is something to boast about.

It is called the Peanut Butter & Banana Milkshake!

Creamy peanut butter and fresh banana, blended with milk.


I'm a sucker for smoothie and this is just my glass of smoothie! Who doesn't like peanut and banana?
Especially when they are mixed is one glass? The dreamy-creamy texture... Mmmmm! 



Le food twime 



1. Clam Chowder (RM11)


Clam chowder was pretty good, it was creamy and flavorful paired with their french toast.



Next up is,


2. Miam Miam's Famous French Toast! (RM16.80)


Pan-fried square french toast coated with thin layer of egg batter.
A giant scoop of whipped cream and along side with maple syrup.


I really liked it! But if you are a small eater and this comes after meal,
I suggest 3 person can share a pan of this! The portion is pretty huge.


3. Soufflé de Nuage (RM28.80)

Home-style fresh tomato sautéed rice topped with fluffy clouds of egg and cheese!


Ordered this because of the interesting appearance and we wanna find out what's so special beneath those fluffy clouds eggs and cheese? It's more like a mac and cheese except its rice and cheese with tomato sauce. If you like cheese this is definitely your dish! Waiting time for time is about 20 minutes. 


4. Miam Miam Spaghetti (RM26.80)

Sautéed with frankfurters, tomatoes, baby spinach and turkey ham. Tossed with french butter, secret broth and shoyu.



It's a french-japanese kinda dish and we all loved it!
We love everything that's topped with a poached egg! Haha  


5. Mac and Cheese (RM23.80)

Over-baked fresh pasta shells with their selection of four special cheeses with crunchy Japanese breadcrumbs.



So here's the real deal with four types of sophisticated "cheeses". Can't get anymore cheesy than that!


Overall, I will give a 7/10 for this restaurant. Food was satisfying but they really have to improve on their service and speed of serving the food. The whole meal took them about 45 mins to serve all the food which is pretty long especially when we were all hungry. One dish came right after we finished another. 

For me, it is unacceptable. It could have been a very satisfying meal with the quality of food they served.

It's a to-try restaurant, but make sure to go on a non-peak-hour to avoid frustration.
