US Potato Special Menu, The Roulette Restaurant Bar @ Oasis Ara Damansara

US Potato Culinary Festival Kuala Lumpur 2015 is back! In celebration of this occasion, The Roulette Restaurant Bar at Oasis Ara Damansara has whipped up three special dishes that feature exceptionally high quality US potatoes. These items will be available on the menu for limited time. 

Fusion US Potato Salad

First to wow us during the evening is the fusion US potato salad served in glass. We are amazed by the injection of century eggs and crunchy cured ginger which beautifully lifts up the overall flavour of the chunky potato cubes. The creamy dressing is rather light but goes very well with the savoury condiments.


Chicken Potato Canape

The next dish is a bite-sized sharing platter that is good to go on its own, but it is one of my favourite appetizers for beer pairing! Sitting on a bed of criss cut fries, the moist chicken patty is crowned with spicy-sweet sauce and flavoured tobiko with a kick sure to delight. 


Golden US Wedges

Another highlight of the evening is the crispy golden US wedges which is served piping hot from the kitchen. It may look simple, but this is one of the best wedges I have tried! Generously coated with salted egg yolk batter, the exterior gives a pleasant crunch while the soft mashed potato in it melts perfectly in the mouth. 


Black and White Sheep @ RM68

Apart from the special US Potato-based dishes, we also order few signature items of the restaurant. Lamb dishes are aplenty here, but each of them surprises us with its creative presentation and cooking method.

For instance, we have a duo platter of deep fried crumbed and chargrilled New Zealand lamb racks accompanied with thick black pepper sauce. Both are exceptionally tender and lean to my liking.

Marinated Lamb Shoulder @ RM42

The next dish reminds me of my favourite marmite pork ribs. Although The Roulette does not serve pork here, I am delighted that the chef manages to prepare the lamb shoulder so well that the meaty texture is exactly what I am craving for! Plus, the sticky marmite sauce with toasted sesame seed is extra robust and flavourful. 

Dried Curry Lamb Mutton @ RM38

If you are seeking for a taste closer to home, the lamb rendang is equally good with its spiced flavours well-suffused into the tender chunky meat. Instead of having it traditionally with white rice, it is also wonderful with crusty oven-baked flatbread. 

Olio Olio Chicken Pasta @ RM20

The pasta and pizza here are also worth a mention because the chef is very generous in his application of poultry into the dishes. Spicy food lovers will rejoice as the al dente pasta is packed with the extra punch of flavours from the dried chillies. 

 Smoked Duck Pizza @ RM32

Fresh Water Prawn Noodle @ RM38

For a taste of fresh seafood, you can satisfy your cravings from the diverse menu here. This dish has blown most of us away with its extra succulent and gigantic tiger prawns on a bed of deep fried egg noodles. The gravy is very eggy and smooth, without being too heavy for me.

The Roulette Special Chicken Wing @ RM28

As the evening goes on, we have the bestselling chicken wings to pair with our beers. Beautifully garnished with the crisp garlic, the crispy drumlets and chicken wings are pretty addictive once you get hooked on. If you are having a football party or late night hangout at The Roulette, this dish is sure to be a winner!

The Roulette is well-known as an entertainment hub with dart games, live band performance and karaoke facility, but many do not realise that it is actually a hidden gem for good food, be it Western or Asian offerings. Highly recommended for parties and casual gatherings after work.

Jelly Bunny Spring/Summer 2015 Collection

Hello, Jelly Bunny! 

I recently got a pair of elegant high heels from Jelly Bunny and they are super comfortable even after a long day of walking. Love the chunky heels that provide good support and they do not look like silicone material at all! 

This design is still available in store, but I think you should really check out the rest from Jelly Bunny's latest “Dreaming in the Cloud” Spring/Summer 2015 collection.

Madly in love with PIXIE handbag, clutch and wallet that are good to go with any occasions! 

Yes, the Spring Summer collection is bringing us high above the sky, amongst the clouds that build dreams and fantasies. The ‘Sweet Glam’ concept for this collection brings more charming and playful designs using rainbow tones such as warm violet, French blue and light purple, adorned with lovely ornaments such as toffies, candies and liquorice.

Cute pastel purple tote and duo-tone SUNSHINE shoes! 

I always love this brand for having a fair range of light, comfortable yet stylish shoes for everyday lifestyle be it casual, leisure or party. The best part is that, Jelly Bunny’s bags this collection is super versatile for different occasions. A mini crossed-body bag during the day can transform into a glamorous clutch at night! 

Oh, the LIP bag (Convertible to a clutch!) and FRENCH bag are such cutie! 

We have tried plenty of the cheerful and whimsical designs in Jelly Bunny's store and all of them look too pretty to say no to! In fact, every collection of Jelly Bunny tells a wonderful and joyful story. From a casual afternoon tea with friends to a romantic picnic date in the park on a nice sunny day, every pair suits the occasion very well when matched with different outfits. 



There are actually lots more in store! How can I resist such seductive sense of colors, shapes, style and functionality?

Thank you Jelly Bunny for the super sweet treats! Wish to bring all your sweet glam collection home too

Alessio @ Publika, Solaris Dutamas

I had a short lunch meeting with my friends at Publika a couple of days ago. Since we needed a quiet place to chat and relax while enjoying good food, Alessio came into mind and we decided to check out its recently revamped menu. 

 Twin Duck Spaghetti @ RM27

Alessio's all-time bestseller on the menu is no other than the signature variety of pasta served in special house made sauces. Personally, I don't usually like duck meat in my pasta because it adds greasiness to the overall dish, but Alessio has executed it very well by keeping the crispy bacon and roasted duck at the right amount of lean and fat layers. 

Look at those thin, crisp bacon and beautifully moist duck slices, how can one resist that? On top of that, condiments such as sundried tomato, olives and fresh orange give an uplifting refreshing tang to the overall flavour of the dish.

Rosemary Chicken and Aubergine Spaghetti @ RM21.90

Another favourite of mine is the grilled rosemary chicken and aubergine spaghetti served in Alessio's special tomato cream sauce. The lean, meaty poultry is well-marinated and yields a tender and moist texture, but it is the creamy sauce that wows most of us with added touch of sweetness to the al dente pasta. 

Charcoal Grilled Chicken @ RM22

If you are going low on carbs, then the crisp-edged grilled chicken is a great option. Exuding aromatic smoky sweetness, the chicken is good to go on its own. However, for stronger flavours, it can be enhanced by the creamy fresh mushrooms and truffle sauce. 

At Alessio, you can choose to dine al fresco, or enjoy the ambiance of the restaurant in comfortable sofa seating or by the bar. Private dining area is also available here, for ultimate privacy. 

Publika can be quite congested especially during weekends, but if you need a quiet, tranquil place to dine and relax, Alessio is highly recommended for its good food, impeccable service and great atmosphere. During my visit this time, I did not get to explore much of the menu, but I will definitely be back for more :)

MBG Fruits Salad Bar @ Tropicana City Mall & Wangsa Walk

Salad On The Go created by yours truly  

Salad has been part of my daily diet no matter how busy is my routine. Nothing beats the enjoyment of munching through the colorful and naturally sweet fruits that yield different textures, flavours and nutritional values. Being a huge fan of salad, I got really excited when creating my very own "Salad On The Go" in MBG FruitShop's latest Fruit Salad Bar at Tropicana City Mall

If you happen to drop by at MBG FruitShop at Tropicana City Mall or Wangsa Walk Shopping Mall, surely you'd notice its new Fruit Salad Bar that features more than 30 types of fruits, vegetables, toppings and dressings for the most discerning palates. Be it a quick nutritious meal or a healthy snack, the salad gives a great boost of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, fibre and water, while curbing hunger. 

All you need is to grab a bowl, pick your favourite choices of salad, weigh it, and pay at the counter. The best part is, everything on the bar is pegged at a single price of RM3.70 per 100g. Now everyone can indulge in expensive fruits such as strawberries, blueberries, grapefruits and kiwis.

Look at those FRESH STRAWBERRIES! Simply delicious.

I believe everyone has different preferences when it comes to fruits. But my personal philosophy is always about mixing and matching as many colours as possible, and go light with the dressing because most fruits are already naturally packed with flavours.

Plain fruit salad can be boring, but not at MGB because here you can add premium toppings such as Organic Chia Seeds, Natural Dried Longan Pulp, Mixed Dried Cranberries, Blackcurrants, Mulberry, Raisins, Nuts and Seeds.

As for the dressing, there are plenty of room for creativity because MGB provides various types of dressings from savoury to sweet. I am attracted by the Roasted Sesame Dressing and Date Syrup apart from the basic salad dressings such as Honey Mustard, Yogurt and Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

Some nutritious creation that you can try is the Sunshine Rainbow Salad featuring mango, kiwi, berries, raisin and almonds. I love how it is paired with nutrient-dense dressing which is made of zesty orange, lemon and lime juice; Simply perfect for those who have sweet tooth. 

Cool Greek Yogurt Salad and Thai-inspired Savoury Spiced Green Apple and Mango Salad 

Savoury type of fruit salad is equally interesting as one can customize the dressing using herbs and spices such as chives, fresh parsley, vinegar and pepper. As for me, yogurt is my personal favourite for breakfast and lunch as it is refreshingly cool and provides protein, calcium and good probiotics. 

It is definitely a convenient, fun and creative way to enjoy your daily dose of fruits and vegetables at MGB!

At the other side of the store, there are large assortments of imported and local fruits to be chosen from. Looking at the fresh, colorful fruits, I am tempted to get some and prepare my own hearty salad at home! 

Spotted one of my favourites: Huge California Red Cherry

.....And Avocado, the antioxidant superfruit!

The Avocado, Date Syrup and Yogurt Milkshake is highly recommended for its creamy goodness! But if you prefer something light, refreshing and energizing, do try out the pure healthy juices here too :) 

Making fruit salad with the fellow friends can be so enjoyable!
Wanna have some healthy and yummy fruit salad too?

MBG Fruit Salad Bar is currently available in Tropicana City Mall, PJ and Wangsa Walk Mall, Wangsa Maju. Do check out www.mbg.com.my for more information!
