Sri Petaling, a place where mostly populated by Chinese community in KL has turn into a food paradise with lots of great restaurants serving good foods. I was introduced to Restaurant Herbs & Spices last week by Chris and Christine of www.broughtup2share.com.
This place looks simple inside out without much sophisticated decor. It is all about simplicity yet doesn’t compromise the comfortable ambiance. To start off the food try outs, I ordered myself a glass of cold 3 layers tea which I find pretty good.
According to the owner here, most of the chefs and kitchen staffs were from hotel lines. You may see them properly dressed and having a proper kitchen setup that able to cook any foods. We start off with a bowl of house special soup.
Hainanese Mutton Soup – RM10.90
The soup were something new to me. I am not a big fan of muttons as I can’t stand the smell. This bowl of soup don’t have that. The mutton meat were tender and soft with plenty of flavors.
Hainanese Chicken Chop – RM15.90
The chicken chop were tenderized with hammer then battered and deep fried. Home made onion sauce and freshly prepared coleslaw accompany the chicken chop at side. Not to forget the french fries at side.
Prawn Fritters – RM16.90
Rib Eye Steak – RM28.80
Medium rare done rib eye steak paired with homemade hainanese sauce and french fries. The meat were all juicy and tender.
Spaghetti with Chicken Chop – RM15.90
An alternative for those who don’t want the standard french fries and coleslaw to go along with their chicken chop can opt for this spaghetti set. The spaghetti sauce were chef’s special creation which blends in well with the chicken chop sauce. Normally the spaghetti sauce tends to have more tomatoes flavor compared to the chicken chop’s.
Lamb Shank – RM26.50
Lamb shank fans won’t be dissapointed here. A big portion just nice for you and the shank were cooked till perfection before laden with chef’s special sauce.
Besides western foods, there are plenty of rice dish which prepared by a Malay chef who were specialist in creating the traditional rice dish from the east coast ie. Terengganu and Kelantan. It was hard to find a good plate of nasi dagang in Klang Valley. Now you can get it here at Restaurant Herbs and Spices.
Nasi Dagang with Ayam Berempah (Spice Chicken) – RM12.00
Nasi Dagang with Ikan Tongkol – RM9.50
Nasi Dagang with Beef Rendang – RM12.00
Nasi Goreng Sri Petaling – RM12.50
Black Pepper Udon – RM11.00
This black pepper udon may look like a plate of ordinary hokkien char with some seafood on top. You are wrong! It is a plate of flavorful udon fried with black pepper sauce and accompany by all the premium quality seafoods yet maintaining the affordable price.
Aside from the great list of main course, they have a selections of desserts which prepared fresh upon order by the customer.
