Strudels @ Mid Valley

My dinner was not really satisfying that night (quality n' quantity wise).
Called up char siew bao and he told me he is still hungry for food...Aiks, we are gluttons mar.

I was somehow craving for tea n' cakes so we went off to Strudels for their discounted pastries (30% off after 8pm).

Char siew bao had the Vegetarian Shepherd Pie (RM9.50), it was the only choice left for hot dish. I lurve the colourful salad so much! The dressing was very light n' tangy, tasted something like Malay's acar.
The shepherd pie was good too. Underneath the thick layer of mashed potatoes was a generous serving of brocollis, green peas, carrots and cauliflowers.

I was so tempted to bite into this colourful fruit tart (RM6.80). The crusty tart case was filled with creamy custard and topped with fruity peach, strawberry, grape, kiwi, dragonfruit and plum.

This so-called tiramisu (RM8.50) was a rather disappointing one. The texture was plasticky @_@ Mascarpone cheese n' ladyfingers were nowhere to be found. Just so un-tasty!

A cup of Cappucino (RM6). Bet you all now who ordered this. You are so addicted to coffee dude.

My glass of Iced Earl Grey Tea with Tangerine (RM5.80). Like the sweet n' sourish taste. Very refreshing.

Didn't order their signature pastry--Apple strudels this time. The last time I had it was like 3 years ago, nuthing fantastic n' appealing, somemore they dun give discount for strudels.

MeiyeN said...

Xiu Long Bao said...

teckiee: choco log cake? hmm...didn't recall seeing this in the display case but i noe there was one choco pyramid cake :)Must try that highly rekomended piece of cake!

kok: no worr...very goody one?

meiyen: No probs. But no discount for strudels orr.

Tummythoz said...

Err.. should there b ladyfingers in tiramisu?
Thx for d tip of 30% after 8pm. All branches, right?

Xiu Long Bao said...

tummythoz: u mean the vege ladyfingers? not sure bout the other terms, maybe i should use the term 'sponge biscuits'? Cus the shape of the biscuits look like fingers. So some ppl refer to it as ladyfingers...;p

I believe the discount applies to all branches...they will put the discount sign at the counter :)

Kok said...

xiu long bao,
Super goody lahhh... Tourists here sure bring a pack of 6 home! It's quite pricey though. If my memory serves me right, it's Aud$17 or Aud$18 per strudel. But it's worth the money!:)

LoL... i remembered we were conned the first time we went there 2 eat. Cut the cashier said 30% discount for "ALL" items... that was untill we bought strudel n realised that there was no discounts for strudels @_@".

So potential buyers beware! 30% discount for all xcept strudel items!

Kok said...

xiu long bao,
it's definitely more than a foot long for that strudel. hahaha! I think I have written a post before on that. Just a touch on that Apple Strudels. It's in my June 2006 post. :)

Kok said...

I'm sorry. It should be a post in November2006. This is the link.

I like the tea there too. I usually drop by there for drinks rather than food. After all, there's loads of restaurants in MidValley ... but thanks for the information though.

Xiu Long Bao said...

kok: waa...then should worth the price lor. Too bad i didn't get to try it :(

jason:haha...u concealed it pretty well huh.

timothy:A good place for a cuppa after 8pm...haha wiv the discount!

sc said...

Xiu Long Bao said...

sc: haiz...i think most of the cakes from strudels are not triable. Not surprised to find their cakes stale cus their biz is not dat gud.

Kok said...

xiu long bao,
Come to Perth yourself and you can try it liao. ;)

Mark said...
