MM Cafe, Section 17

>> Wednesday, August 10, 2011

Overall comment: Decent food & pretty cosy ambiance. Prices of food is slightly high for a cafe located at an apartment area, but I guess it's a cafe & food here have standard cafe prices (average RM9.90). The best part - no taxes (service/government)!
Halal: Yes

It's my 1st time at MM Cafe & I didn't know that this place existed since I rarely pop by this area (although I live 5minutes drive away)! The only 2 cafe/coffeshops that I know at this Happy Mansion area is 6-to-10 Grill & Nasi Lemak, & the chicken rice stall opposite 6-to-10. Yes, I'm SO not a food blogger, eh?

The chicken rice is pretty good, but I don't really fancy 6-to-10. I feel that it's quite pricey & the portion isn't THAT large for the price you pay...I wouldn't go there unless I've no choice. As for MM Cafe, I reckon I may visit that place again to try their other food on the menu, but this place won't be one of my top-choices around this area. I still prefer road-side stalls/coffeeshops when it comes to Asian/hawker food.

The cafe's interior is very simple. It seats roughly 30 persons comfortably & has very minimal decorations. (photo was taken when we left the cafe around 10pm, so we were the last customers to leave the cafe!)

Ginger Beef Kuey Teow (RM9.90/serving)
Portion is average; not overly generous 'til you get "jelak"/bored & can't finish nor was it too miserably little that you need to take supper or order more food. I find the beef over-cooked. I remember having ginger beef kuey teow somewhere else (I can't seem to recall where!) & the beef slices were tender!! *drools* This one is hard & rough already :( On the overall, it's okay, but I find that it lacks flavour, "kick", & fragrance. Something is missing & I'm wondering if it's the "wok-hei"/flame. Usually, food that is cooked in high flame tastes better :)

Mushroom Soup with Garlic Bread (RM8.90/serving)
When it was served, it looked nice. The texture of the soup looks chunky & has generous servings of mushrooms. I don't know how it tastes like as I didn't try it, but there weren't any complains from CQ...perhaps she's not very picky with her soups...haha...

Penang Char Kuey Teow (RM9.90/serving)
Firstly, when you eat such dishes at a cafe, never compare it with the original road-side stalls in Penang nor PJ/KL. Somehow you'll never get the "road-side"/stall's taste, which is very much aromatic & flavourful. KK is a chef by profession & he didn't really complain when he ate, so I'm assuming that there's nothing very wrong with this dish! I couldn't smell it when it arrived, so I felt that it wasn't too impressive. I guess it's edible & tastes alright if you're not picky.

Bread & Butter Pudding with Ice Cream (RM5.90/serving)
I've never really know how to appreciate bread & butter pudding. The ones that I've had before at hotels didn't taste fantastic. This one seems alright. It's not too sweet, nor was it soggy (ergh...I'll SO dislike it if it is!). What makes the pudding interesting is the crunchy almond flakes. I'm not a great fan of nuts, but the mixture of cold & creamy ice cream +warm & sweet bread pudding +crunchy almond flakes exploding in your mouth gives you a different level of satisfaction to the simple dessert :)

Classic Swiss Apple Pie with Ice Cream (RM9.90/serving)
I'm surprised at 2 things with this dish. Firstly, it's the same price as a main course!! Secondly, this cafe lacks creativity in food/dessert presentation! *disappointed* Ok, those aside, I kinda enjoyed this dessert although I find it extremely pricey for the portion served. The apple pie is probably the size of my palm, while the ice cream is smaller than my fist. Mind you, I don't have big hands. The only thing that I like is the level of sweetness - not too sweet nor was it tasteless :) This pie could do with more cinnamon & apples!

We're gonna miss KK when he leaves for Dubai again (for work)...enjoy your last few days in Malaysia & have a greater year of work abroad!! *come home, come home!*

yeah.. saw MM so many times while dining in that area - My Elephant, 6-10-Grill... but sadly never venture to this place before

Also nearby is Food Foundry, famous for their crepe cakes.
I can't believe I haven't tried My Elephant. Shall make it a point to pay a visit there soon :)

Though I was not blown away by the food there, still they offer pretty reasonable Western dishes for lunch. And the desserts are not bad either. Best is? Ample parking spaces.

Nice to know, that this place is still going strong! LOL

I went there today and the waitress (a fat short one who could not speak proper english) was so rude! She insulted my guests and shouted at me when I asked her why she was so rude! FORGET THIS PLACE! There is plenty of other cafe just like this one everywhere! Pity to the owners that the staff is so blindingly rude and abusive! I am going to tell everyone what a horrible experience I had there.
