P.S.Cafe @ Platinum Walk Setapak

Tuesday, September 30, 2014 1 Comments A+ a-

The best food to have during rainy days, I would definitely choose steamboat. The satisfaction of slurping on the simmering broth and spending time together interacting while waiting for the food is what I enjoy.

Spotted this newly opened steamboat-P.S.Cafe which is located at Platinum Walk. P.S.Cafe served authentic Malaysian food and their signature halal steamboat set. Recognisable by its' traditional trishaw and coconut tree themed signboard, P.S Cafe is worth visiting for their steamboat menu.

Comfortable place to dine in with friendly and attentive staff. Originally born from Penang, the owner hope customers can feel the homey restaurant environment with the touch on the vintage interior and wooden finishing. The red brick wall is specially designed and he is planning to put on the old and unique wall arts soon.

Set lunch promotions that comes with the selection of nasi lemak ayam, maggie tom yam seafood and wan tan mee soup with only RM 6.90 from 11am to 3 pm . Teh o Ais drinks is included with the set.

Customers have the options to choose a single drinks or a jug for sharing among 3-4 pax. 

Reasonable steamboat promotions set that is cater for different group of customers from individual set to 4-6 pax set menu. The seafood menu include scallop, tiger prawn,flower crab, and dory fish fillet, all are carefully selected. Ordered from the Malay providers for all the ingredients and replenish often to keep them fresh.

Current ala carte menu that is available.

Longan juice ice (RM 3) and Umbra Sour Plum (RM 2.50). Both drinks are refreshing and I personally prefer the Sour Plum, a healthy goodness drinks.

The steamboat here comes with a half pot clear soup in one side and another half tomyam soup. We prefer the clear soup. The soup is boiled with nutritious anchovies and Jicama (sengkuang), which can bring out the natural sweetness of the soup . The tom yam soup is belly warming with the right balance of the spicy taste, They used the tom yam paste, serai with additional adding on the lime and daun limau purut. Flavoursome, spicy, sour and fragrant tom yam soup.

We are given the set that is exactly same with their current promotion deal in Groupon offering two person serving steamboat set that includes the following:
  • 4 x Shrimp tail
  • 5 x Lobster ball
  • 6 x Sandwich tofu
  • 7 x Fried fish cake
  • 4 x Stuffed fish ball
  • 4 x Chicken slices
  • Cabbage
  • Meehoon
  • Noodles
  • Broccoli

The only missing ingredient is the seaweed which I just realized. The amount is actually nice just to satisfy two adult .The drawback is the presentation of the broccoli which could be better as the colour doesn't looks appetizing to me. The broccoli has change colour and the crisp texture become limp.

The standard sauce that can be found in Malay steamboat. They only have two sauces - Thai sauce and chili padi with soy sauce. Pretty decent 
All the ingredients is bring to boil and ready within 8-10 minutes. Aromatic tom yam soup

Bouncy fishball stuffed with mushroom 

Non spicy Sarawak Mee Goreng (RM 8.90). Sometimes we call it Mi Kolok.  The mee goreng is a wee bit salty for my liking.

Wan Tan Mee Soup (RM 8.90). A hot pot with wan tan mee texture and generous portion on the seafood ( prawns, crabmeat, chicken meat and dried oyster).Flavoured and sweet soup

Thanks to Ricky and Mr. Lai for this invitation and we are glad to found another new eatery place in Setapak area.

I have planned for family gathering to celebrate my youngest sister birthday and will be meeting up with them at Mid Valley Megamall. Have few vouchers from the previous contest, I can used these vouchers to dine in at Chili's. We reached at 1pm, waited at the counter for less than 8 minutes and our table is ready for 11 people. Good service as usual and MidValley outlet have more walkway space and I find this outlet is more comfortable compare to the KLCC outlet. As usual we will always ordered this TRIPPLE DIPPER - A combo of three favorite appetizers of Chicken Crispers, Wings Over Buffalo and Southwestern Eggrolls with sauces for dipping. Appetizing and portion is enough to be shared.

Sis ordered this CILANTRO PESTO PASTASpaghetti topped a savory cilantro pesto sauce, chicken meat sprinkled with pico de gallo. The salsa is sourish blends well with the pasta.

FIRECRACKER FISH FILLETA - grilled fish filled with sweet & spicy glaze and garnished with red chile tapenade & sesame seeds. Served with rice & seasonal veggies. Hubby said he wanted to try this out, bored with the salmon fillet. Surprisingly, this dish is spicy and the grilled fish taste so good.

CRISPY HONEY-CHIPOTLE CHICKEN CRISPERS - This is one of my favorite serving of few Strips of crispy chicken that is fried to perfection. Succulent chicken meat with the addition of the spicy and smoky Honey-Chipotle sauce. Served with juicy sweet corn and homestyle fries as well.

CLASSIC FAJITAS Juicy, fajita-marinated chicken grilled to perfection. Served sizzling with onions & bell peppers. Combo or Veggie (mushrooms, rice, black bean & brocolli). 
My sister complimentary birthday treat..the staff sing along the birthday song to her..but my naughty kids are pretending there and just aiming at her ice cream desserts ..not singing together 

Another accomplishment and successful gathering among my family members. We have a fun and enjoyable lunch with scrumptious food. The kids are the most energetic and I saw the waiter is getting annoyed by our kids..Hahaaha..that's how the situation (out of control) when you dine in with 5 kids..

Pretz n’ Beanz @ Solaris Mont Kiara

If you ask me where to find pretzel? I will only think of Auntie Anne's. 
After visiting Pretz & Beanz, this has totally change my mindset and I finally found a good quality of Pretzel which I can said the best pretzel I have tasted.

Located strategically at Solaris Mont Kiara, at the corner lot, this cafe is easy to locate. We can have the options parking outside along the shoplots, or at the basement with RM 1 fee only. 

"Pretz & Bean" - it means pretzels and coffee beans - A very straightforward approach to differentiate their specialities and when I walk in, I was impressed with this cafe as a whole. 

Previously known as Chilla Cup, which have been established for the past 4 years. Now they are re-branding their name to Pretz n' Beanz, adding more choices in their menu. Instead of just serving pretzel and coffees, here you can find a satisfying meal with wide selection of breakfast menu, pasta, Tower chicken burger ( highly recommended), fish and chips for dinner or trying out their first introduced Pretzel Pizza.

Outdoor space to chilled

Cozy and spacious place to relax ourselves with a cup of coffee

Mouth-watering menu in large font sizes. Breakfast are serve all day. You can choose family breakfast for dinner as well and can be shared among 3 persons. The price is reasonable for the good quality of food and of course the huge portion of what we are getting is really worth for the price paid off. The menu are revised from time to time to bring the best choices to customer. The donuts and croissant is double the size compare to other cafe.

Wide range of hot and cold beverages available. Coffee is their top selling item originally from the name of Chilla Cup, and they adding on healthy juice drinks which is now high in demand. People are concern on healthy lifestyle and they looking for 100% fresh juices that will beneficial to their body. 

In the menu, I can find such name " Keep Fit" ( it looks like I will slim down after the drinks - which I hope so), "Wake Up" (It sounds like the refreshing juices), " Super Charge", "Mean Green" and etc. Alice suggested Mean Green, she said this is really good which I couldn't agree more.

The crowd is here even after 9pm

Array of homemade cakes and pastries. The cakes are fresh make daily and they also supply to other cafe in town. Looking forward to try it out next time especially the chocolate cake

The main counter to order your food and drinks. 

Current promotions offering personal pretzel pizza of the day + 1 iced lemon tea for RM 15.90 and RM 24.90 for regular pizza sizes with the same drinks. This dinner combo set is only available from Monday to Friday from 6-9pm.

Neat Red brick wall with some nice quote hanging on the side wall. The cafe bright lighting looks inviting with friendly staff assisting our orders and serve with a warm smiles and welcomes. I noticed customers are so comfortably sitting there enjoying their dinner,surfing the net with a cup of warm coffee . 

 Pretzel shape is shown on the left and coffee bean on the right in the shape of heart to symbolize LOVE.

And it has a Chinese character of 人 (pronounce as "ren" which means human) - serve people (human) with their  love, and heart. Such a nice combination. The owner is thoughtful and this simple logo will just flash in our mind that this place is serving pretzel and coffee.

Enjoying my cup of warm Caffe Latte (RM 11)

Mean Green (RM 13.50) - Combination of apple, celery, cucumber, ginger root and lemon. Great healthy juice and for detoxification. Uses 4 fresh apples and adding on more ginger root. Awesome.

We have the chance to see how the staff prepare the fresh pretzel pizza. Estimation time around 10 - 15 minutes.

Spread the sauce and ingredients
Finally, the cheese portion is a must

Green Tea Latte (RM 11.90) - Being the most healthy drinks and pairs wonderfully with the milk. Smooth and creamy matcha-based beverage that can be enjoyed any way you like. 

Introducing the First Pretzel Pizza in town  
Hot Pepper Chilli Chicken Pretzel Pizza RM14.90 (Regular) RM20.90 (Large)20.90) . Special in-house dough recipe and you can see the obvious difference that Pretzel Pizza uses the soft pretzel dough and still remain soft even after 3-4 hours after the serving time. The pretzel pizza may look thick at glance, but once you have your first bite, you will be very much agree with me that the pizza dough is so soft and fluffy.  I must confess this pizza taste so good!! Every bite are bursting with flavour.

Filled Pretzel with Sweet Potato - RM10.90. You can never find this unique pretzel elsewhere. Slightly-crispy crust and stuffed with sweet potatoes. Great combination and the natural sweetness of the pretzel makes me wanna have more. A fresh-baked soft pretzel taste with perfect mix of sweet potatoes and salty baked cheese.

Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel (RM5.90) –  Familiar pretzel that I have known off  with crunchy brown sugar cinnamon topping. The best part is the pretzel texture was fluffy and tender. Kids gonna love this too. Ideal place to get a quick snacks, huge and satisfying pretzel which are all freshly made upon ordering.

Basil Cheese Pretzel (RM6.90) - This is my favourite. The basil pretzel is aromatic and the texture is extremely crispy. I enjoy every bite with the cheesy and strong flavour pretzel.

Lovely heart shape.  Hand-twisted gourmet pretzel that will surely melts your heart

Next, we ordered another Ice Blended Mocha - RM13.90, claimed to be their most hot selling drinks.

Apart from that we also tried another type of their signature pretzel pizza - Norwegian Delight (Seafood Pizza) with the price charging at RM15.90 (Regular) RM21.90 (Large). The pretzel pizza is bake to crisp perfection, Tender on the inside, crunchy on the outside. Savoury pizza, flavourful and have the spicy kick. Each slices are so delicious with charitable amount of the cheese on top of the pretzel dough.

Pretz n' Beanz own creation of Caramel Butter Thick Toast (RM13.90) –  This really surprises me the most. Huge toast that I never seen before. The super thick toast can be shared among 2 persons. The flavour whipping cream have the right balance with the caramel topping.  The toast is perfectly done , delightful taste with crunchy on the crust and soft on the inside. Caramelized butter toast which have gained the popularity here.

Just look at the creamy thick toast..yummy

Thanks for having us tonight. We really enjoy the food and the homey environment. Definitely will visit this place again.
