Meatball & Co, Putrajaya

I’m not a mean person, but I have to tell people to not eat here. The food was horrible.

The meatball set comes with an option of two side dishes. I ordered beef meatballs with salad and mashed potatoes plus soft chocolate cookies and cappuccino.

The meatballs were so tasteless, I felt like I was chewing a sponge. The mashed potatoes was equally tasteless. I wondered if the cook forgot the vital ingredients. There was nothing memorable about the salad and the cappuccino.

The chocolate cookies was OK. Not too sweet and they actually tasted like chocolate cookies. The cookies were the only good thing I ate there.

The bill was RM25.95. I beg you not to waste your hard-earned money here.

My verdict:

Salam Noodles, Cyberjaya

I dropped by at Salam Noodles for lunch. It’s located on level P2 of Shaftbury Square, Cyberjaya. I heard much about this restaurant and decided to check it out.

This restaurant has a welcoming feel that I like. It’s decor is simple but attractive. I sat down at a table, wrote down my order on a piece of paper and then went to the the counter to pay. The menu consists of a variety of soup noodles. There are also a few rice dishes, if you prefer that. I ordered braised beef soup noodles. Drinks are free flow and free of charge if your food is at least RM8.

Balqis Restaurant, Putrajaya

Before I write about the food at Balqis Restaurant, I have to let something off my chest. Eating Arab food does not make one Arabized — no more than eating Korean food makes you Koreanized, or eating western food makes you Westernized. All those people with puny brains who are afraid of the imaginary Arabization of Malaysian Muslims need to take a chill pill and get a life. I sure do hope the Chinese family I saw eating at the restaurant didn’t make a bee line for a shop selling abayas and starts using Arabic words. Otherwise, we’re doomed!

Now that that’s off my chest, let’s talk about the food. I arrived at around 12.20 p.m. on Sunday. There weren’t many people. I ordered mandi lamb with rice but was informed that it would take a while because it was still cooking. So I opted for kabsa lamb with rice (not that there was a bread option). The photo of the spicy potato wedges looked yummy, so I ordered that for appetizer.

None of the hot drinks I wanted was available. Because I don’t like milk shakes and ice blended drinks, I ended up ordering mineral water. What’s the point of having a long list of drinks on the menu and many were not available?

Hei Sushi

How crazy am I about Japanese food? On a scale from 1 – 10, I rate it at 6. Hei Sushi claims to be the first halal certified restaurant, so of course I had to check it out.

I opted for the three-course meal. I ordered the red passion drink, sirloin steak and I don’t remember the name of the appetizer (sorry!). The red passion drink tasted fizzy and I quit carbonated drinks years ago. My bad really, for not asking what’s in the drink. So I then ordered the flower tea.
