Kalau ada kita bersyukur, kalau tak ada kita bersabar.
Tak perlu bermegah dengan apa yang kita ada, tak perlu bersedih dan mengeluh jika kita tak ade seperti orang lain.
Allah bagi ape yang terbaik untuk kite pada mase yang betul. Tak cepat tak lambat.
Yang penting berusaha untuk capai ape yang kite inginkan.
Assalammualaikum Morning sahabat semua. 😉
This Chicken ala Kiev at the @bonvivantpalais had its own share of wows and woes. The stuffed chicken comes with herbed butter, mashed potatoes, veggies and a tad bit underwhelming-ness.
Value for money: 7.5/10
Price: PKR 750+tax.
Bon Vivant Palais is a rightly called food multiplex with brilliant and majestic interiors took my expectations to a high. It has three sub-restaurants, Pan Asian Xing Fu, Desi ‘Riwayaat’ and a multi-cuisine offering cafe.
A huge chicken breast crumbed to perfection was slightly over fried. Well, despite the exterior tased great, it was more hardened than usual. The crust was thick but the core had well tenderised chicken, fairly juicy and crispy. The core was stuffed was herbed butter which was too watery, oily and scanty. At first it didn’t taste well, more of runny herbed water than butter but it started getting tasting better with every mouthful. Too bad the stuffing was astoundingly low, about half of the chicken had no stuffing. So taste-wise it passed muster, the herby taste was great with apt amount of salt and spices. It lied on a bed of delicious mashed potatoes, while the mayo dip tasted a little bland. Full points to the veggies wrapped neatly. Another rather technical issue was that this stuffed chicken faced to the right, making it rather difficult for right handers to eat, but it was somewhat ignorable.
The service was apt though the staff was less than required. I was gobsmacked by this majestically huge place with multiple floors, charming interiors, fancy lamps, comfortable sofas, wooden walls and a pleasing aura.
Well this chicken ala Kiev had certain highs and lows, the watery runny scanty herbed butter and hardened exterior were downers but overall it was a satisfactory experience. Ciao.
