Rahsia @ Jalan Damai

August 26, 2009

The place is as lovely as ever, but the food has taken a turn for the worse.

Tagliatelle in a crispy "designer bag" with mussels, prawns and squid in cream sauce. Brimming with seafood, but bland and completely forgettable.

Pan-seared Norwegian salmon in coriander coconut cream with roesti potatoes. The fish was dry and not quite fresh. The menu stated that this would come with arugula, but it turned out to be a garden-variety salad instead.

Grilled lamb rack with lemongrass mint sauce and buttered veggies. The kitchen did its best, but the meat was hopelessly subpar. Rubbery and chewy.

Envy (guava juice, lime, soda); Asmara (mango juice, lime, strawberry, pineapple); Cinta (soda, watermelon, lime, mint leaves).
