If I have a garden, the very first tree I am going to plant would be a lemon tree. Then the tree would grow and bear fruits so I can use in my cooking, for lemonade and natural air freshener. Okay, just a little day dreaming here but no harm done right?
Usually when I dine out, I would order fresh honey lemon for my drink. I like the scent and taste of refreshing honey lemon which is a mix of sweet and sour. Great for my throat and good to drink on a warm day.
If I have this lemon tree at home, ....
Anyway, continue with my food adventure, I dropped by this Honey Lemon Cafe & Zakka last night. Have meant to check out this place for months but did not manage too. I think it used to be called a different name then?
If you are wondering what does Zakka mean, I got the interpretation from Wikipedia. Zakka (from the Japanese 'zak-ka'（雑貨）or 'many things') is a fashion and design phenomenon that has spread from Japan throughout Asia. The term refers to everything and anything that improves your home, life and appearance.
It was my first time there last night, so the waiter was happily introducing his food menu to us. It is a fusion cafe, so they have oriental food, snacks to Western. After we put our order, we were left to roam around.
They have a corner of merchandise, mostly for girls.
Their bags corner. Not my kind of taste! *wink*
My kids shared this fried rice, which fit for 2 persons. Very huge portion. The fried rice was good, enough "wok hei".
My SIL had this baked cheesy chicken rice. Look at their "over-presented" baked chicken rice! I think they should omit the shredded cucumber and cabbage, as it over-whelming the dish. The rice was alright but the cheese was not so "cheesy" enough as it did not melt into the rice. So this dish fell flat in taste.
I were thinking of no-rice dinner, so I ordered its chicken chop with mushroom sauce. A bit disappointment for me as the chicken chop was not well marinated. Rather bland and the mushroom sauce was not so great. The coleslaw was too sour, as they added too much lemon in the coleslaw.
The place looks like a good place to hang out but different story for its food.
Maybe the next time I drop by here, I will try its local dish such as nasi lemak or nasi ayam penyet. Both dishes look delicious in the picture. But I guess I got to try them out to know how good they are, right? Another time then!
