Avenue 1 Café (留香)
Posted by: Wen Ching In: Malaysian Food
As we’ve mentioned before, there are many new restaurants popping out in the Kuchai Maju area. So here we are again, looking for new place to dine in.
We ordered a set meal for RM9.80 which comes with a main course, a drink and a dessert. We were given a choice of jasmine tea or sour plum ice (酸梅冰). We had an iced sour plum which was the drink on the right. It tasted as artificial as it looks, we didn’t like the taste of it. We also tried their ice white milk tea (奶茶冰) for RM3.50 which was rather tasteless as it lacked the sense of tea.
Fortunately, the food made things up. We tried their specialty which was this Satay bihun (风味沙爹米粉) for RM6.80. The presentation of this dish was nice and neat. The rice vermicelli which was mixed with the satay sauce tasted good as the crushed peanuts went well with the slightly sweet satay sauce. The chicken tasted good too, it was sweet and tender and even better when dipped in the satay sauce.
This is our tomyam fish head mee hoon (东炎鱼头米粉) which was part of the set meal. The soup was spicy, sour and aromatic. They even added yam into the soup which seemed quite new to us. A generous serving of fresh fish head was served too! It was quite tasty overall.
Service was quite average and the menu was not organised. The good thing about them is that they serve a wide variety of food which includes different types of toasts, special snacks such as grilled seafood ota-ota (烤海鲜乌达) and desserts such as blueberry and marble cheesecake. Also, this café do not charge customers for government tax and service charge. Quite worth to give this place a try!
