Malaysians are getting more creative in terms of their food presentation. My Cookbook‘s food presentation is just so pretty. It is sad that I will have to “destroy” the chef’s effort in placing each and every dishes neatly and carefully on my plate in seconds. Turning through the pages of the menu is like looking through an art book. I do have some doubt as to whether they can recreate the look as represented in their menu. You know, the burgers at McDonald’s doesn’t look the same as represented in their menu. But when they brought my Barley Pandan Rice with Curry Chicken – RM15.90 to my table, my jaw dropped. Wow!
Then I have this thought – usually something that looks good doesn’t always taste good. Sorry for being negative but I was numerously disappointed everytime I see food that look so pretty. Well, My Cookbook did a pretty good job here. The curry was thick and rich with flavour, rice rolled into an “uncutted” sushi rolls, half an egg with it’s middle still watery and warm, delicious smash potatoes and a fully packed prawn wanton. It tastes amazingly good.
My Cookbook’s Chicken Rice is one of the best selling item on the menu. Priced at RM15.90, this plate of chicken rice comes with 3 neatly rolled ingredients. Yes, the 2 ingredients are rice rolls, chicken rolls and Japanese cucumber. This plate of chicken rice comes with a bowl of chicken soup.
I’ve got to say, not everything was good. I felt that the Mozarella Balls served in TGI Fridays are much better than the ones offerred here – RM8.90. It is not cheap either. Given the second chance, I won’t order this.
Drinks tastes really normal. The only thing special here is that each glass are served with flavoured popsicle.
Our total bill comes to about RM58. We weren’t aware of the lunch sets currently served at My Cookbook – yes, the waiter/waitresses did not put this to our attention. So we ended up paying a lot more. So if you are heading your way there now, do insist on their lunch sets.
