La Gomera Spanish Buffet @ Neo Damansara

We decide to give Spanish food a try after Heather, a friend of mine found out about this place in mydeal, and the price was not really that expensive for a buffet dinner(@RM29.90). This is my first time having Spanish food, so the review is based on MY OPINION ONLY and NO COMPARISON was done for Spanish food).

But overall, I will give the environment and lighting a B+, it is definitely a comfortable place to have dinner in.
The services offered by those waiters are great too...Thus, thumb up for that too.
They offer free food tasting on their new dish, seafood in spanish sauce, of which I like the sauce very much, not too spicy,at least not too ordinary that you can make comparison to tomato sauces that you could find anywhere.
One of the dishes I like most was the cold prawn. They are considerably fresh and not too colds, that you can actually feel the freshness and juiciness of the prawns, even when they are not that big.
The lamb dishes was not bad too. The lamb are succulent and not too hard. In fact, they have nearly every kind of meat (chicken, lamb, beef, seafood) in Spanish sauce.
Of course, you could never missed out raw oysters. Theirs was not big, and only one on every order you placed using the small clips similar to Tenji.
The seafood was OK, just a tad too salty.

This is considerably new to me, but I like the crunchy part of the bread, and taste even better when you dip into the soup.
Forgot to take pictures on the spaghetti, but they are really not as good as it looks, and too sour for my liking. Even a friend of mine who has a passion with spagetties couldn't take it.
Overall, I would rate B for La Gomera, and I think I will recommend it for family gatherings or even dating...:)

Ming Sate Hut - Malacca

Craving for sate babi? or pork intestine sate?

Head to Ming Sate Hut at Malacca nearby Mahkota Parade. Situated a few shop beside Nadeje Crepe Cake shop, Ming Sate Hut serve variety of sate from chicken to pork, intestine to lamb all under one roof.

The sauce is also very unique. Rather than the usual peanut sauce, the sauce in Ming Sate is cook with chunky pineapple that give the sweetness taste of the pineapple.

The chicken satay is nothing to shout about as other stall can simply serve the same standard as theirs.

The intestine sate is very unique indeed. There is no smelly taste or neither it was hard. The intestine was nicely bbq over the charcoal fire. Well, it was my first time eating intestine by way of BBQ...

The pork sate on the other side taste much better than the chicken version.

Nancy 's Kitchen

I was invited by a crazy bunch of colluegue to be the judge for WTF Challenge which stands for 'Where's the food'...Each participant are required to search for food that they never taste before and marks will be given based on the food, price, ambience as well as the presentation of the food itself.

Nancy Kitchen is located at Jalan Hang Lekir, which is off Jonker Street....very easy to locate the shop. Once have to queue up as the shoplot was rather small and can accomodate about 30 person at ground floor and another 40 person at upstair.

Among the dishes we order are as follows:

For started we opt for popiah and 1 set of Top Hat (Pie Tie)

For main course we order Pongteh babi, cincalok egg, 4 angle bean and otak otak serve with white steam rice.

The bill come at RM 61.50 which inclusive of 4 drinks.

The popiah and pie tie was extremely well done.

Pongteh babi was nice as well but a little too oily for my liking...

Cincalok egg was normal and turn up to be salty...But that is the way it should be since cincalok is salty in nature.

4 angle bean and otak otak was nothing to shout about.

Overall it was a decent meal....for the price that we pay, it was consider affortable..

Lastly i give the challenger 71 marks out of 100....not that bad after all....
