'Piak'...Sound of silence...
Followed by black out...arghhh! Not again!
Wasabi : We can't cook tonite!Can't shower! Can't watch tv!
(That is when you realise how much you depend on electricity)
Oolong tea: We will eat out then.
Me & Wasabi: *Grin*
Thanks to the power failure, we got to try out the new 3 months old bistro, featured by Star recently.
Apparently, the owner of Kokopelli used to run a restaurant @ Royal Selangor Club with its specialty dish--CHAR KUEY TIAO it is!
Before presenting the killer dish to you, quench your thirst with some mocktails with funky names.
I had the 'Car Pool' (RM8.90) which is essentially carrot and apple juice. Wonder why they named this glass of fruit n' vege juice as mocktail...hmm...
Wasabi had 'Come fly with me' (RM7.90). Interesting name with cherry juice in sprite.
Done with the drinks, now I shall present to you the must-have dish from Kokopelli--Spicy char kuey tiao! Very reasonably priced at RM8.90 but without skimping on the ingredients, the plate of nudles is full of 'wok-hei'. Just wonderfully delicious!
Wasabi is enjoying her plate of char kuey tiao. She can't believe it when she finished off the last strand of kuey tiao. *I walloped one whole plate of nudles!!!*
Oolong tea went for Kokopelli's western selection--New Zealand Lamb with 3 sauces (BBQ sauce, Mushroom sauce & Black Pepper Sauce) and he asked for medium well.
Priced at RM20.90, the serving is generous enough with 2 big pieces of lamb and some side dishes like baked potatoes, corn on the cob, bun & roast veges.
But medium well seems to be not a really good choice as Oolong tea had a hardtime chewing the meat, just stick to well-done when it comes to lamb.
And lastly, my cauliflower & brocolli gratin (RM7.90). Sounds healthy but not. The big fat vege chunks were baked in sinfully creamy cheese. Thumbs up!
The dessert selection is rather limited, you can pick your fave cheese or choc cake from the dessert counter. That nite three of us went for a slice of Strawberry cheesecake (RM6.90). Tasted fine, I luv the lite and sourish strawberry jam layer.
The service was overall attentive, the owner--Ariff came to greet us too and that was how we got to know that he has been char-ing kuey tiao for the past 10 years. Try it and fall in luv with it!
