Herbs & Spices

Posted by: Wen Ching In: Malaysian Food

Is your group torn between having local food and Western food? Looking for something reasonable? Are you in the Sri Petaling neighbourhood? Then Herbs & Spices is exactly what you’re looking for!

Herbs & Spices
Serving up a wide range of quality dishes, Herbs & Spices is bound to satisfy any cravings whether it be for steak, rice or a fusion of cuisines. The restaurant is pictured above in the centre of the photo, but unfortunately its sign was covered by the red and white canopy which was temporarily erected for an event in which Herbs & Spices catered for.

Herbs & Spices
The interior was brightly lit and clean. It was comfortable and the pictures of food on the wall made the restaurant look very attractive.

Kopi Tarik (left) and Herbal Tea (right), Herbs & Spices
While waiting for the food, we started off with a Hot Kopi Tarik (left) and a Cold Herbal Tea (right), both priced at RM3.00. The kopi tarik was strong and not too sweet, just the way I like it! The herbal tea was mild and had a hint of spice, which made it a very refreshing drink.

Hainanese Mutton Soup, Herbs & Spices
We started off with the Hainanese Mutton Soup for RM10.90. The soup was very appetising and had a strong herbal taste to it which complemented the mutton.

Hainanese Chicken Chop, Herbs & Spices
Moving on to the mains, we sampled one of their speciality dishes: Hainanese Chicken Chop. For RM15.90, one would get a tender piece of chicken deep-fried to perfection. Served with French fries and coleslaw, this had all the makings of a balanced meal.

Hainanese Chicken Chop, Herbs & Spices
The chicken itself was very good and could definitely be eaten on its own, but don’t forget to pour on the accompanying sauce for an even better eating experience!

Spaghetti with Chicken Chop, Herbs & Spices
Another appetising dish was the Spaghetti with Chicken Chop. Priced at RM15.90, the chicken chop was as excellent as the previously-mentioned dish, but spaghetti in a special pesto sauce was in place of the fries and salad instead. We thought the spaghetti was very enjoyable, but the only drawback was that the portion of spaghetti was rather small.

Rid Eye Steak, Herbs & Spices
For RM28.80, one could get a serving of Rib Eye Steak as well. The steak was juicy and tender. It went down very easily and was not tough to chew at all!

Prawn Fritters, Herbs & Spices
We also had the Prawn Fritters for RM16.90. The prawns were fresh and the serving was generous. The batter coating each prawn was not too thick which we enjoyed.

Lamb Shank, Herbs & Spices
Also on the menu was a Lamb Shank for RM26.50. The portion was rather big and the meat soft and succulent. This was one of our favourites! All those listed so far were but a few Western items on the menu of Herbs & Spices. We were definitely not disappointed by any of them, which was to be expected from their team of experienced chefs.

Nasi Dagang with Ikan Tongkol, Herbs & Spices
Moving on to more Asian fare, Herbs & Spices offers some quality Nasi Dagang. Prepared by an experienced Kelantanese chef, the nasi dagang was authentic and definitely delicious. Each plate of nasi dagang comes with some sweet sambal, acar and a hard-boiled egg. Pictured above was the Nasi Dagang with Ikan Tongkol priced at RM9.50.

Also on the menu were the Nasi Dagang with Beef Rendang (bottom) and Nasi Dagang with Ayam Berempah (top), both priced at RM12.00. The beef rendang was flavourful and one of the better ones we’ve tasted in a while and the chicken was top notch! For that price, we would definitely come back again!

Black Pepper Udon, Herbs & Spices
This was the Black Pepper Udon. For RM11.00, one would get mixed seafood fried along with udon noodles in a strong yet pleasant black pepper sauce.

Nasi Goreng Sri Petaling, Herbs & Spices
Priced at RM12.50, one could opt for the Nasi Goreng Sri Petaling as well. The fried rice was served with a small portion of salad, anchovies, two sticks of chicken satay and some sweet sambal. The rice itself was fragrant and had strong influence of bell peppers.

Sago Melaka (bottom) and Crème Caramel (top), Herbs & Spices
Phew, that was plenty of mains, wasn’t it? We’re not done yet though, it’s time for dessert! We tried the Sago Melaka (bottom) and the Crème Caramel (top). They were priced at RM4.00 and RM5.00 respectively. The sago was served in a bowl with gula Melaka and coconut milk, also our favourite dessert.

English Triple, Herbs & Spices
This was the English Triple. Priced at RM6.50, it was sweet and refreshing.

Apple Pie, Herbs & Spices
The Apple Pie is worth a try as well! For RM8.00, one would get a slice of apple pie and a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The pie was not very sweet on its own and was perfect when eaten with the ice cream!

We would really like to thank Herbs & Spices for extending the invitation to sample their food to us. Otherwise, we would never have discovered such an amazing place! It was a great event as we were able to share such good food with our friends: Brought up 2 SharE, Food Point of Interest, iamthewitch and My story~.
