Will I come back: Yes!

Pork-free, serves alcohol


This post is based on Open House’s dinner ala carte menu. All orders are recommended by the waiter.


I don’t have Malay Cuisines very often, but this was one of the better ones I’ve had in KL!


Food:

Umai Prawn Borneo (RM49) was good, tasted like prawn ceviche, except the portion was pathetic.


One of the best Beef Satay (RM39/3pcs) & Chicken Satay (RM33/pcs) I’ve ever had! Both had really rich flavour, and I loved the peanut sauce! But if I had to choose, I’ll pick the beef.


Off-the-Menu Tiger Prawns Lemak Cili Api (RM129) was okay, but not wow. Prawns were slightly overcooked, and the sauce was slightly bland.


Pais Barramundi (RM69) was very flavourful and moist. This was my favourite among the other mains!


Short Rib Masak Merah (RM133) was tender but had a lot of fat compared to meat. But the sauce was rich and flavourful.


Pepes & Satar (RM45) tasted like fish & chicken otak-otak. But this was super rich in spices and had so much flavour!


Lemongrass Rice & Kulim Rice we’re both very fragrant. But the Lemongrass Rice had more spices, hence it had more flavour.


Keria Churros (RM29) was served together with the mains as kitchen was about to close, so I didn’t get to try it while it was freshly served. It wasn’t crispy anymore but it was still chewy. (Doesn’t affect my critique.) The Milo & Caramel Salted Butter was overpowered by the salted caramel, barely tasted Milo.


Bubur Som Som (RM25) was very rich in coconut milk taste and had rich gula Melaka filling in the middle. It’s not bad but it’s not really my thing.


Service:

Attentive and friendly waiters. Very clear explanation on the menu.


Ambience:

Mixture of modern and traditional interior. Comfortable seatings.


Disclaimer:

Price is slightly steep for the portion, but will pay for the quality!
