VCR @ Jalan Galloway Pudu, Kuala Lumpur



 We always pass by VCR when we drive our way to Main Main cafe for lunch. VCR is located at Jalan Galloway along the way to the Swiss-Garden Hotel and few rows of old houses. Never did I know such cafe exists here. VCR is Hidden at the corner lot with no signboard and only a small board here showing the menu and opening hours. The entrance is mysterious and if I were to walk around this area, I will love to peep inside this cafe to find out more.


From this view, we are seeing a residential house with a traditional post box and walkway to the entrance door. The whole place is with black colour concept, painted panels and wooden stools and tables.





We ordered 2 cups of Latte, Grapefruit & Chamomile ( In bottle), and espresso. Reasonble price for the portion that we are getting. That is really a large cup of Latte. Love the design and the aromatic hot drinks is definitely my best choice for today

Here comes the Potato Waffle (RM 22). We are so impressed by the food. Russet potato waffle served with generous portion of mushroom fricassee, herb salad, tomato fondue, 63 degree Celsius free range egg . Savoury soft and fluffy waffle on the inside and crispy delicious on the outside layer.


Outdoor space with greenery grass




Array of cakes available





Limited choices in their menu

Great hang out place with quiet ambiance





Beautifully platted French Toast (RM 18)  - Fluffy brioche french toast, berries compote, crumbles, mocha sauce espresso based ice cream.  The ice cream flavour  is really something special that we all never try before. The whole combination is so perfect.
We enjoyed the food here and will surely coming back to try their VCR Big Breakfast soon.

Rama V Fine Thai Cuisine @ Jalan U Thant, KL

Rama V Fine Thai Cuisine is located at Jalan U Thant KL, just 15 minutes drive from Setapak. This restaurant is bungalow setting and i love how they arrange the tables setting, well organized and with dim lights. We will be sampling the ala carte buffet lunch today and there are so many choices of food. All fresh prepared from the kitchen and served on our table.




Greenery scene that are so beautiful for sight seeing. Thai resort specially designed for customers to dine in inside



Free flow of salad and appetizers






While waiting for the food to be served, we have a short tour surrounding




Since its inception in 1995, Rama V has been recognized with a string of awards. Amongst a few to mention, Rama V was rated one of Malaysia's best restaurant by Malaysia Tatler's Magazine for several years; a recommended restaurant by Expatriate Lifestyle magazine; and most recently, Rama V achieved the Top Food 40 status by Time Out Kuala Lumpur. 



Weekend Ala Carte buffet lunch menu. RM 59.90 ++ for adult and RM 29.90++ for child. 

The two page menu is quite clear and straightforward with brief description on the menu choices. But no photo attached as reference.




Complimentary bottomless pandan drinks


Tung Ngen Yueng - Deep fried minced chicken and shrimp wrapped in bean curd
Crispy and moist meat





KUNG PUN OOI-
Minced Chicken & Shrimp Wrapped in Sugar Cane

Big serving of the Tom Yam Jeh - Spicy tomyam with Thai herbs and vegetables


The taste is good but I actually expecting more spicy taste


After waited for almost 20 minutes, our main course arrived and to our surprised each dish is such a big portion. This is not really a buffet lunch with small sizes / portion of the food. The food is all serving just like the ala carte. From my past experience having ala carte buffet lunch at Siam 62 Kota Damansara, they are only serving a smaller plate for each dishes that we choose, thus we can actually taste more variety of the food in the menu instead of having such a large portion of each choices in the menu. 




Khao Phad Rama V -  Rama V Thai Style Fried Rice.

Kai Hor Bai Toey - Fried Chicken in Pandan Leaves

Stir kai lan with shrimp - This is absolutely good

Gaeng Ka Ree Kai - Yellow curry chicken with sweet potato. - Goes well with the rice and not spicy at all. Aromatic and flavourful

Beansprout with taufu


Pla Dang Sam Rod - Red Snapper fish fillet with three taste chili sauces. Appetizing sauce and the fish is fresh. I love the combinations of the three sauces


Tako - Coconut jelly with water chestnut and Taro. We enjoy this desserts, refreshing and not overly sweet.
Overall, we are satisfied with the food and definitely a worth visiting place to dine in with family.
