Makan - Makan || Restoran & Kafe Sakura Kristal, Taman Melawati

Had a feeling to eating out the other day.. tapi tak tau mana nak pegi.. so just drive on and do'a that the place we ended up to is approvable.. eheheh..

We ended up to a place that we've visited quite a few years back.. Didn't know why we didn't came for a second time.. the food as I remember was not a let down..

this is where we had our dinner that night..
Adam's current favourite drink to order
garlic bread for Adam
mushroom soup for Adam

The garlic bread must be ordered separately form the mushroom soup.. Adam loves the soup.. but he always loves mushroom soup.. and must be specifically eaten together with a plate of garlic bread.. he would order them himself..

my grill chicken

The grill chicken was nice especially eaten together with the black pepper sauce.. but I would prefer if they would drench my salad more cause its a bit dry..

enjoying his food

I guess we would be coming back to this place.. and I can see this is our future hang out place as a family..

Makan - Makan || Meat Point, TTDI

the shop

Another place that we went to to have halal steak.. read about this place in some of the blog review.. The place was not that hard to find..

The shop was not that full when we arrived.. we were asked to pick our own steak and doneness.. the price range was according to the type of the steak and the weight..  You also get to choose your own side dishes consists of vege and potatoes..

list of steak cuts
We ordered mushroom soup and garlic bread for Adam.. and we settled with warm water instead of the normal fresh fruit juice..

mushroom soup
garlic bread
enjoying his meal

The mushroom soup was delicious.. Adam wallop all of it without offering a bit to us..

bread & butter

Then our steak came.. I was quite disappointed with the side dishes portion.. quite small to compare with the steak.. and another thing.. if you notice, I didn't order my usual t-bone steak.. they were out of t-bone.. a little bit frustrated.. so I ended up with grain fed striploin..

my grain fed striploin
Mr. AZ ordered grass fed tenderloin.. he was happy with his plate..

Mr. AZ grass fed tenderloin

We decided that Meat Point would be the place we go to for a steak if we were in the area or somewhere near.. but we won't be going all the way to TTDI for a steak.. because for us the steak was at par with the one we get from Meat U Here..

Makan - Makan || Secret recipe, Galeria Putrajaya

Another indulgence during lunch hour.. actually we were tired of the same office cafe food.. something for a change.. 

I was feeling fishy that day.. so my choices are fishes.. I ended up ordering Fish & Chips.. another friend ordered Caribbean style fish fillet..

fish & chips

caribbean style fish fillet
The Caribbean sauce/gravy were too much.. it made the fish fillet soggy.. the emeal would be nicer if the fish is more crispier..

golden crispy chicken
 We would prefer if the chicken sauce to be more.. because this meal is a little dry..

ice lemon tea

Another 2 ordered their Lunch Chicken Promotion of Golden Crispy Chicken.. all of us had ice lemon tea..

pumpkin soup

Ouhh and we had pumpkin soup for starter..

the restaurant

Since it is a working day, me and Mr. AZ went straight from office and meet the rest there.. as expected we were early but couldn't order yet.. Had to wait for Mr. Finance Minister (abah.. ehheheh).. Adam was very excited as he spotted us.. he ran towards us.. rindu sangat kot..

our table
menu book

We ordered 2 servings of rice with lamb and chicken and salad.. such a big portion.. the 10 of us adult plus 3 kids couldn't finished all of it.. what more with mak ordering chicken sandwich and another additional order Shawarma.. But for me, I love the main dish.. rice..

the chicken and lamb rice
sauce and yoghurt
orange juice
The end of the dinner, the kids asked for ice cream.. so they got themselves a scoop each.. But I didn't let Adam finished up his ice cream.. I passed his bowl to everybody at the table.. afraid that he'll be sugar overload that night.. kalau dier sugar overload.. matila aku!!

The night ended with sending my aunty and family off to one my uncle's house since they'll be catching morning flight the next day to Sarawak for family holiday..
