Ju.Ne Japanese Restaurant @ Solaris Dutamas, KL

For a restaurant located at the quiet side of Solaris Dutamas, Ju.Ne seems to be doing pretty well with its own set of loyal customers. That’s always a sign of good things to come, right?

Sashimi-Moriawase

A huge display of sake bottles coupled with a bilingual menu (Japanese followed by English) give a character that is unmistakably Japanese. Which is why some of the more exotic items could be found in the assorted sashimi @ RM62.
One of them is the Monkfish liver, which has a creamy and delicate flavor. No wonder it is also called the ‘foie gras of the sea’. The other items were OK, quite fresh but just not as good as the ones I had at Ichiro Sushi Bar. Besides, the ebi still had some shells attached to it.

Salmon-Sashimi

The salmon is the only redeeming point of this dish.

Coffee Société @ Publika, Solaris Dutamas

It seems to me that almost every cafe in town (or maybe just Publika alone) has to be Melbourne inspired, Coffee Société included. Their menus are also so similar to each other that nowadays, ambiance comes first when choosing a place to chill over a cuppa.
I usually have little to no expectations on the food when eating at cafes because, well the food always come out ‘cafe standard’. But that does not mean the food is bad, just that you should sort of have an expectation set before you step into any kind of eating place.

Cappucino

Iced-Cappuccino

The coffee here is OK I guess, they taste exactly like how you’d expect them to be. I couldn’t really discern any significant difference like I did with espressoLab. For the ladies, you will be glad to know that there is some sort of happy hours (for coffee though) every Thursday from 6-9pm. As long as you come in a group of three or more, you get free coffee.

S.Wine Café @ B.I.G, Publika Solaris Dutamas

**Warning: Non-halal post**

So I have succumbed to peer pressure and finally tried S.Wine at Publika. It is one of the more hyped restaurants in the mall because one, it is owned by BIG group – the same that also owns the highly popular Plan B, and two, the menu is full of pork dishes.

Swine-Publika

The interior is so quirky and funky blah blah blah, honestly I don’t really care. Anyway here’s a cliche photo mosaic of the restaurant because that seems to be the trend in food blogging.

Pea-and-Ham-Soup

Pea & Ham soup @ RM14 was the best tasting dish we had that night and it came totally as a pleasant surprise to all of us. However, the presentation was quite awful, not sure if the chef had a shaky hands or what, the creme fraiche was laced to look like there were tadpoles in the soup – simply unappetizing.

The Red Beanbag Café @ Publika, Solaris Dutamas

The consensus out there on The Red Beanbag café has been mixed. Some argue that the food is not worth the hype while others agree that their fast and friendly service is great. Well, to be honest I think RBB is pretty good in both aspects since we actually had a pleasant breakfast (solely based on what we had) there in the last weekend. Of course there is still room for improvement, but those issues are really just miniscule.

Red-Bean-Bag

Knowing that RBB is situated within Publika you should expect it to have a distinctive character. Like any other quaint coffee house that are mushrooming in KL, RBB has that cozy and hippie vibe which makes you feel like you are abroad somewhere. And I am pretty sure Instagram users would have a field day here with all those bean bags and various decorations around.

Awesome-Fryup

RBB’s Awesome Fryup @ RM22 – a platter of toasts, eggs of your choice, beef or chicken sausage and turkey ham or beef bacon completed with sides of sauteed mushrooms, hash brown and baked beans. Everything was fine for me except for the scrambled eggs that were slighly overcooked.
