Alexis @ Mid Valley Gardens
February 5, 2009
One of the few restaurants at the Gardens where the kitchen remains open past 10 pm.
The lemon risotto was a tad too salty, though the combination of arborio rice and peas was a dynamic duo of comfort food.
The Nasi Istimewa Alexis was more notable for the side dishes than the rice, which wasn't very flavourful despite the kaffir lime and garlic infusion. However, the ikan bakar berserai tasted fresh, while the beef rendang was a lot more tender than we had expected. The kerabu pucuk paku supplied our semi-healthy veggie requirement for the evening.
The aglio olio angel hair pasta with yabbies was hearty but not really worth ordering again. Kinda bland. Maybe it's healthier that way?
