Special ambience and good rojak @ Bayu Timor

8 June 2008

Adjacent to Famous Amos in Taman Megah, PJ, there is this unique furniture cum cafe which is delicately decorated with Bali furnitures and antiques.

Once you step into the cafe, you will be amazed by the variety of decorative items and their wooden furnitures. I suggest you tour around the shop to discover it yourself before/after eating as there are full of surprises at every corner and each dining table is different. My favourite corner is always around the toilet as it is very creative and fancy! If you are keen, you can find bigger items upstairs and all that you see are for sell. I would definitely say this is a somewhat new concept of dining where you can experience the old & rustic charm of yesteryears at the same time lookout for any interesting items or funiture to purchase.

Food wise, primarily rojak, others like western food (eg. fish n chips, pies) / nyonya kuih / cakes are also recommended.
Fish n chips RM12.90Seafood platter set lunch - scallop, squid, mussle, fish, prawns, broad fat friesNasi lemak - nyonya stylePumpkin soup comes with the set lunch

For lunch, they offer set lunch priced at around RM20 which consists of soup, a main course, nyonya kuih for desert and hot or cold tea / coffee. We ordered seafood platter from the set lunch menu, fish and chips which was recommended by my friend and first trial from their local food menu - nasi lemak but did not order their must-try rojak this time for a change. Nasi lemak & fish & chips are RM 12.90 while the seafood platter is RM 13.90 as ala carte and it is RM 18.80 for the fish & chips set menu and RM 19.80 for the seafood platter set menu.

We had a good start with the soup, served piping hot with a slice of garlic toast. We were pretty satisfied as it is smooth, rich, fragrant and the garlic had sufficient butter & garlic on it. The same could be said for the desert which came after meal as it is quite authentic and natural.

The fish and chips were good. The fish tastes sort of like dory fish, but it is not fishy and fried to perfection and the seafood platter is served with scallop, squid, mussle, fish and prawns which were all fresh and juicy but I would say the portion is too little for guys, ha! One credit for their western food as they use broad fat fries! For the nyonya nasi lemak, it is just ok but it is bigger in portion compared to the rest and the rendang was thick & creamy too.

Just a short note to add that the penang rojak comes in a plate shaped like a leaf & the specially made sauce is black, thick that is the key success and comes with very generous amount of grained grandnuts, fruits and crispies, definitely a great dish to share among 4 people. Apart from that, I have also tried the pies & pastries & I can say that is even better than Secret Recipe.
