Equine Park Restaurant, Seri Kembangan

>> Sunday, January 25, 2009

Date: 9 January 2009, Friday
Venue: Equine Park Restaurant, Taman Equine, Seri Kembangan
Occasion: Olivia's & Kryslynn's surprise birthday celebration
Overall comment: Taste of the food served was quite good. The only thing is the portion, which I thought was a 'lil small. Service was definitely quite efficient & the lady boss was quite friendly as well :) Price-wise was good on the overall.
Halal: No

Okay...I know this post is LONG overdue....really sorry for the delay in posts :( I've been very busy of late & only now that I have the time AND mood to sit down to blog...anyways...

It was one of those times where we planned for a lunch gathering to accommodate 20+ colleagues. This time around, we had around 25 persons, taking up 2 large tables. We decided to try out this restaurant instead of the usual Ma Poh at Equine Park as well since it was recommended by Toby; he calls this place the "RM8/fish"...hahaha...the cheapest fish-dish (small red Talapia) does cost only RM8.00/fish :) We paid a total of RM200+ for all the food & drinks, which I felt wasn't too steep a price lah...can be considered as a decent place for a meal.

I kinda like this dish. It has a tinge of spiciness, tangy-ness, & the fried cray fish is also slightly crispy, even after cooking with the sauce :)

The lady-boss recommended this style of chicken instead of the usual steamed herbal chicken. Well, it's alright lah...a little bit on the dry-side since it's fried. It's not a dish that I would order again since there's nothing really 'wow' to it...

Almost everyone (if not everyone!) liked this dish. The deep-fried fish was crispy & the mango sauce was rather unique. We rarely come across fried fish served with mango sauce, do we? :)

The sauce could do with a bit more ingredients for a richer flavor. It's a little bit spicy, creamy/thick (I think it's due to the coconut milk or at least evaporated milk), & has a faint fragrance of the lemon grass+ginger taste. We much prefer the mango sauce fish :P

Since nobody wanted to eat the meat on the fish head, the PerutBesi-gal had to do the honors. Gah. It's not that eeky, really. There's not much meat on the head anyways, & I don't 'suck' the meat/juices out of the fish head...I just use my fork & spoon to dish out the fish meat... :P

This was a rather interesting dish. To actually find stir-fried ferns (commonly known as the paku leaves/paku-pakis in Malay) in a restaurant, plus cooked in such a style, is something that I wouldn't mind trying out. Many of my colleagues were curious when this dish was served...some have never tasted this veggie before! *shakes head* I've never eaten this style of ferns before, but it sure tastes pretty good :)

A very common veggie, yet if overdone or under-cooked, would just ruin the dish. This one was just nice.

I must say that this dish is quite good...at least the pork isn't too fat or too lean 'til it's tough to chew. The sauce is alright as well, & I would recommend this dish as a decent pork dish to savor :) Kids would love it!

The beancurd's very smooth...mmm....the dish was finished quite fast! *lol*

The reasons for the occasion- surprise birthday lunch for these 2 ladies! Hahaha...they were indeed surprised. Olivia was told that this is a usual lunch gathering since we haven't had such a thing for quite some time, while Kryslynn was told that it's a surprise birthday lunch for Olivia. Little did they know, it's a celebration for the both of them! ;)

Delicious chocolate cake *lip smacking* Rich, moist, not too expensive! I can't remember its full name though....Chocolate Wonderland maybe? It's Chocolate "something" lah... :P
