Since The Waterlily moved to Mutiara Tropicana, I'd never visited once.
I'd been to their Puchong outlet, which carried different menu from Bumbu Bali and Ole-ole Bali.
Actually I quite like their previous menu, more light food and cheaper too.
So I proposed to come here for our gathering for 2 reasons. One is just to pay a visit (at least I stepped into it XD), another reason is their food is meant for sharing. We had 4 people meeting up, so we can make order to share.
The Bali style interior.
First, we had Barley lemon drink in jug, RM18, for sharing.
We asked for less ice, but they came with a jug with half of it filled with ice. But good enough that the flavour haven't being diluted and it's very refreshing.
Bali style mixed salad, RM9.
We were quite surprise to see the portion and variety of ingredient used in it.
Tasted good, yummy!
Here comes their specialty - nasi campur (RM33).
We ordered chicken to replace beef as I don't take beef.
It's very big in portion, but we're quite hungry then. So we managed to finish it.
I fancy keropok and sate lilit the most, not too oily and very aromatic!
we went for vege pasta (RM15) to balance up our meaty meal.
The sauce was good, however it'd been out shined by the other star dish.
But it's good too to have something light, right?
We were busy chatting throughout our meal, and we thought that might as well get a dessert to share. And also since there's still some space in out tummy, hehe~
Dessert menu had made us spending some times to choose one, we had pisang bakar (RM13) finally.
It might look a bit normal (like eating bananas with ice-cream for that price?), but mind you, the combo of vanilla ice-cream with grilled bananas is awesome.
We had a great dinner to spend with each other, isn't that the priceless moment?
I was trying to get bread loaf from mini market downstairs, but the rack was quite empty.
So I have to go to another market next to my apartment to get it.
When I was about to get the household brand one, I saw this wholewheat bread loaf.
It's written there 'rich in wheat bran, 100% brown sugar'.
Since I've never tried before, so I grabbed it.
I'm not sure if it's really healthier than other brand (the ingredients did sound healthier), the taste and texture are quite similar to those produced by bakery, but at the same price as the household brand's. They have more wheat in proportion, hence the rougher texture of the bread. The nice smell of wheat is also stronger.
I'm happy with my new finding.
This Homemade by Mel & Anne's orange marmalade jam was given to my mom by a neighbour.
The family couldn't stand the bitterness of the orange chunk. I think they were talking about the orange skin, maybe they put in whole orange in the process.
Yes, the jam is truly full of flavour and texture of orange (and the skin XD). I don't mind the bitterness, if fact I'm not a fan of sweet stuff. So I'm comfortable with the taste.
When I was thinking how homemade is this jam when the expiry date is in year 2013, then only I found out that 'Homemade' is the company name. -.-
Well, consumers are more conscious with healthy food nowadays, so a lot of production of food label as 'healthy', 'low sugar', 'homemade', etc.
We wouldn't know how true they are, so please be careful when selecting them, such as paying attention to their ingredients and also look out for the labels with *. Read them thoroughly and then make your choice.
