Food wise, there are so many eateries that I wanna try them out and my list has already reached 2 metres long. Till last Friday, I managed to strike out one--Banquet @ Bangsar Village that has been on the top of my list for a month.
The 'Banquet's butter fish rave' was initiated by meiyen, then followed by JFKA's president and Nipple Joe. When in Rome, do as the Romans do. But I was craving for spicy nudles that day, how? So I forced char siew bao to order the legendary butter fish :p
Start off with a plate of Mango Salad first. Intially I thought it is going to be something like fresh mango cubes with salad leaves but I was wrong. It turned out to be a plate of Mango Kerabu! Priced at Rm 13, it is achingly expensive but worth every cent paid. Seriously, the mango salad was really good. Nice balance of sweet and sourish taste, topped with crunchy peanuts and anchovies. This should be the signature starter for Banquet.
Taadaa, here comes the Oven Baked Butter Fish with Honey Mustard (RM25). The flesh of the butter fish was really tender and juicy, tasted bland without the honey mustard dressing but no complains. Fresh fish always taste good on its own.
To fix my craving for spicy nudles, I had a bowl of Penang Prawn Noodles (RM16). The broth was full of flavour, sweet and delicious. Try it with Banquet's home made sambal to give it extra kick.
Even a glass of iced lemon tea (RM8) from Banquet tasted unique, which we believe that it's freshly squeezed lemon juice, different from the usual sweetish commercialised iced lemon tea.
Didn't try their dessert (tiramisu!) as we planned to visit Midori later that nite for its green tea desserts. Will do will do....on my next visit :)
