Just another ordinary pan mee. I prefer pan mee which is thicker and with bite, this one is just a bit too smooth.

Lamb Rack in sweet granola bar crust, caramelised onion on top of mashed potatoes & spiced peach chutney. The meat is very tender, but they undercooked it a wee bit that we have to send the above back to the kitchen for a little more heat.

GtowerTanzini19

Beef tenderloin and cheek is tender and yummy as well, same as above it was tad too rare that we have to send it back to the kitchen.

GtowerTanzini20

Yellowtail king fish(hamachi fish)

GtowerTanzini21
I am less than impressed with the profiteroles with banana ice cream dessert as the ice cream felt icy and the choux pastry taste like it has been in the fridge together with the ice cream for too long.

Invited Review: Sri Kulai Microwavable Frozen Ready-to-eat Meal

Sri Kulai1
Thanks to Andora of Truth Communications Sdn Bhd, i was given a Sri Kulai goodie bag which consists of 6 items to be reviewed.

Sri Kulai2

clockwise from top left: Nasi Lemak with Rendang Chicken, Sambal Lengkuas Udang with Rice, Spaghetti Bolognese, Teochew Mai with chicken soup, dumpling with chicken soup and beancurd chicken roll

Sri Kulai3

Box removed, not yet micowaved. Need to tear a small opening in one corner of each items so that steam can escape. Although the package mentioned all the items to be microwaved for 4 minutes, i find some part of the food still icy/cold after 4 minutes, so it is better to microwave them for 5 minutes.

Sri Kulai4

Dim sum items ready to be eaten. I like the siew mai(rightmost) the best, made with minced chicken, mushroom and i think some coriander. The left most beancurd is ok, i don’t fancy the dumpling(middle in picture above) as the wrapping is too thick and the filling tasted quite bland. Above dim sum items all priced at RM7.90 each.

Sri Kulai5

Nasi lemak one of their top seller is quite nice with surprisingly fluffy rice(RM5.90. There are 2 pieces of chicken. The sambal and rendang chicken taste quite good, only lacking curry spice aroma which could have been lost after being frozen for quite some time.

Sri Kulai6

Their sambal lengkuas udang(RM5.90), recipe is from one of their winner from “Sri Kulai All-Time Favourite Recipe Search” competition. The sambal is similar to that in their nasi lemak, and the prawn although small is not floury.

Sri Kulai7

Spaghetti bolognese is one of their popular item as well, taste ok.

Among all the items above, i like Teochew Mai with chicken soup, nasi lemak and sambal lengkuas udang.
