Hakka Republic @ Wisma Hap Seng KL

What will you think of when you get an invitation to Hakka Republic? the first think cross my mind is, what type of place is this, perhaps a drinking bar. Thus, it's not but it's a fine dine restaurant with live band performance when the clock hits 10pm.

What I can say about the menu is.... not much too choose. basically all of us almost had the same dish which is the Australia Wagyu and the marination of this piece of meat is not enough.
But of course it's a fine dine restaurant before they serve you the main course or appetizer, you'll be serve with their house bread and even with a spoon of scallop on house!

olive oil and truffle butter
 mini bun
 sip it and bite it
We ordered a few appetizer which is the Tuna with Tobikko and nothing to shout about.. just hurmmmm normal =P

We ordered a Foie Gras as well, the taste is acceptable and it taste better when you have it with the toast

After showing you what we had for starter and even told you guys what most of us ordered but there is still other main dish we ordered which is the US Wagyu and this taste way better compare to Australia Wagyu and even the price difference is almost RM100 but I think worth it hahaha
And also a Pan Fried Dory which taste so-so only

Ordered some sides as well and the puff looks cool and it taste like a egg puff

Also a few flavour of mash potato where visually looks da same

After meal, I got a cappucino
while the rest had been enjoying their wine while the food is served haha

Summary: I was here 2 months ago and basically I had forgot the actual name of the dish and also the pricing as I remembered is not cheap and the taste is so-so only. So sorry for the inconvenience guys but they do have a live band every Friday and Saturday night starts from 10pm

Address: Lot 2.05, Level 2, Menara Hap Seng, 
Jalan P.Ramlee, Kuala Lumpur,
50250 Wilayah Persekutuan.

Cantina @ KD (Kota Damansara) (CLOSED DOWN 12 July 2011)

Got to know Cantina by Pam. I doubt you will walk in when you passby maybe due to it's exterior. let me tell you, don't judge by it's cover when there's lots to tell with the food they serve! Tonite the dinner menu is all decide by Lawrence and you will amaze with his secret recipe menu which can't be found from the menu! Look for him and get him to recommend!

So now you have seen the outlook. Let me show you what they serve which it's a Halal restaurant run by Lawrence an Eurasian convert Muslim and not only Malays cuisine he serves but also Thai, Indon, Nyonya and Western! where can you find all good halal food with all this different cuisines?

It's my second time to Cantina, the 1st was a buffet with barbeque Western and Asian food and over the weekend had try the West side!

We start off with a Vege Tempura @ RM8 and the flour taste I just got no idea how to describe it but you will crave for more! and also dip on the chilli sauce!
Lawrence encourage diners to have more fiber in their food pyramid so the next dish is a Potato Salad with Smokey Turkey @ RM10, the sauce and fresh potatoes and greens just make this dish goes greener!
After all the fibers intake and here comes the superstar which is the Beef Steak & Cheese Sandwich @ RM10!! you'll definitely ask for more!! We gets lotsa ingredient due to many of us sharing and in it besides cheese and beef there is also egg and it is toasted!! besides that, it was so juicy when you have the first bite!

Besides the Beef Steak & Cheese Sandwich @ RM10, Lawrence did prepare us a Lamb & Cheese Sandwich, where I still prefer the beef hahaha..
We also had a Salmon pizza @ RM12! and the most amaze things besides the crunchy crust, the flour which made the pizza also gave me a shock, where Lawrence uses wheat flour and when I ask him, he said yea I tend to like people takes more fiber which is good for health. It's really impressive isn't?! a shop which looks soooo normal but the menu Lawrence come out with it's a surprised!
Guess wart we had for dessert?! it's Pengat Pisang @ RM3! a Malay dessert which looks like Bubur Cha Cha but this is made with mainly banana, sweet potato and yam. It's my first time trying this and despite it's not a very sweet dessert tho and the aroma it's awesome!

Taste: 8/10
Value for Money : 8/10
