Recently, I attended an AGM of a company which was held at Royal Bintang Kuala Lumpur and to my surprise, the big bosses of that particular company was very generous and had awarded those who are present during the AGM a voucher each. The voucher entitles the holder of the said voucher a food voucher worth RM50 which is valid in certain Royale Chulan Hotels around the Klang Valley.
As I do not wish to travel too far away from home, I decided to go to the nearest Royale Chulan which is the Royale Bintang The Curve. There were many restaurants which I could choose to dine and some of them are the Window Restaurant, The Terrace, The Skaters Cafe, Minori Japanese Restaurant, Asam Pedas and etc. After going through the menu, we decided to have our dinner at Asam Pedas. Asam Pedas is located at the Western Courtyard, The Curve. Asam Pedas can be spotted very easily as they have a group of singers and musicians singing and playing right in front of the courtyard.
We ordered their Sweet, Sour and Spicy Seabass / Tiga Rasa Siakap Fish @ RM50. The fish was quite fresh and it was very beautifully presented. Taste wise, it was quite good. We expected it to be spicy but it was mild – just right for those who doesn’t like the spiciness of the dish to overpower the rest of the taste.
We also ordered their seafood tom yam. The seafood tom yam comes with a generous amount of squids, prawns, mussels and etc. In terms of its taste, it didn’t quite taste like tom yam. It lacks the sourish taste a tom yam should be.
This portion is the large portion and it is sufficient for 4 to 5 persons.
We also ordered their spicy red beef or also known as daging merah, which is available in almost any Malay restaurants. It was quite alright except that it is a little bit tough – which I am not complaining as beef tends to be tougher if it is cooked longer.
To compliment our dinner, we also ordered their omelette and some green vegetables.
Overall, we were quite happy with our meal as it was very simple and delicious, and most important of all, partially free – we had to pay our drinks and additional charges as our total bill exceeds the amount on the meal voucher.
