RM12++ Really Good Value Lunch At Sanook Bistro Sports Bar Plaza Kelana Jaya

Out of so many bistro or bar, my personal favorite vote still goes to Sanook Plaza Kelana Jaya. The special part about this place is the relax environment and having reasonable priced drinks plus range of good foods. Normally when we visit bar, the whole environment gets smokey and you smell terrible after walk out. Here you smell lemon grass and fresh air at the alfresco outdoor.

The alfresco sitting area of Sanook.

A glass of Rosee Wine paired perfectly with their wood fire baked hand tossed thin crust peanut butter based HONEY LAMB Pizza.

Although I was invited a couple of times for review, I did return to do my signature MENU ATTACK on them where we order about 80% of their menu items. We shared among ourselves foodies hence allowing us to try the consistency and food quality under extreme pressure like this. It is not easy to cook everything on your menu on adhoc basis if you are not well prepared. We never announce our arrival. Here I give them thumbs up! They are able to bring it!

Last week I was invited by the Godfather which is the owner and also turned into my good friend that I visit him for a cup of tea whenever I go to Bangkok. He was actually hands on with his chef to come out the best crafted menu that brings quality and affordability to his patrons. I would say all the menu items for the set lunch were priced with minimal profit in mind. The whole idea is that he want to promote his foods to customers to return for more of his vast range of foods during dinner time.

Smokey Wing Khao Pad Khapit (Belacan Fried Rice With Fried Chicken Wings)

Hainanese Chicken Rice where you get a quarter chicken portion rather than the sorry ass few small bits normally. They don’t cut corners. Gals may share this portion and order extra bowl of rice base on my suggestion.

Authentic Thai Jasmine Rice. Just the rice alone I can clear a few bowls on its own. The rice are cook with the chicken stock that came while poaching the chickens.

Daily fresh prepared ginger and chilli mix.

The Hainanese Chicken Rice Set

Ayam Percik Vietcong Style

Malaysian BBQ Styled chicken topped with Vietnamese peanut sauce come with pilaf rice and acar rampai.

Spaghetti Aglio Olio Seafood with squid and tiger prawns

Vongole Clam Penne

Fettuccine Chicken Alfredo

Seafood Canton Sang Mee

A value priced equally good SANG HAR MEE with a smaller tiger prawns rather than fresh water prawns. For lunch, I don’t think you wanna spend RM50 for just a place of noodle right? Here are Sanook the taste remains but prawns were replaced with a more value priced version. With the current economy so bad, this is the best you can get at RM12++ with drinks and dessert! YES!! You hear it right! RM12++

Sanook Bistro & Bar Kelana Jaya New Menu 2012

Sanook Kelana Jaya is no longer a stranger for us in providing good food, wine and ambiance. Their menus never stop to impress me everytime I went there. There are plenty of surprises awaiting food lovers with their fusion foods.

Sanook has a great alfresco setup by the lake which give a great open air experience dining under the moonlight.

Biggest screen for your favorite sports show. Grab your favorite drink to chill out after hectic office hours and then grab yourself a plate of your favorite foods from their latest menu.

Margarita RM11

3 weeks back Sanook Kelana Jaya just launched their new DANGEROUS MENU!

With a theme of DANGER, Sanook’s new menu are extremely dangerous to food lovers like me. I can tell you this is the best set of menu which I would love to try every single dish of it.

Moogus Salad – RM22

Grilled Sirloin Beef & Asparagus tossed with wild rocket salad topped with parmesan cheese and roasted red capsicums in house special dressings. I love this salad over the traditional Caesars. Too much of something is boring. This is new and so tasty!

Spicy Mermaid Salad – RM22

Sauteed tiger prawns & calamari rings tossed with roasted capsicums, asparagus, cubed Japanese cucumbers & romaine lettuce in Sanook’s special house dressing. The squid were having perfect texture and do not taste like a rubber band at all. Every bite are crunchy and balance in terms of taste and freshness.

Tom Yum Goong Pisek – RM29

This is a MUST ORDER at SANOOK! Recipe from the owner’s mother in law (A Thai) will let you taste the best of Thai National Price Tom Yum Goong. It comes with tiger prawns, squid, fish, mushrooms and infused with herbs. A bowl of fragrant Jasmine rice paired with this soup are hard to resist.

Gyro Lamb Pita – RM18

Sliced boneless marinated lamb leg with veggies & black olives, stuffed in fresh homemade pita bread packets, with special yoghurt mint mint sauce. This is a great one for people who are on diet menu. There are no fats and helps in giving the body energy minus the fats. Body builders sure love this.

Kim Yang Lamb Cutlets – RM52

Kim’s favorite lamb cutlets coated in Korean Spices, charbroiled to perfection & accompany with Korean Kimchi. I am not a lamb person coz of its smell. But this one I can take it which is pretty mild on the smell. Dip into the sauce and mix a lil Kimchi enhance the taste further.

Masala Rib Eye – RM42

Prime cuts of beef rib eye (250 gram) coated with chef’s special mix of garam masala, grilled to perfection and accompany by vegetable kebabs.

Sotong Otak Otak – RM30

Grilled whole squid (250 grams) stuffed with prawn otak otak (spicy prawn paste), served with sambal tumis , pilaf rice, garden greens, garnished with prawn crackers, almond & fried shallots. In my personal preference, I don’t mind to order this as a take away set and next day morning buy nasi lemak to pair with it. Yummy to the max!

Teriyaki Char Siew – RM22

Tenderly broiled chicken, brushed with special sweet soy sauce marinate, garnished with piquant plum sauce & green onions served with herbal pilaf rice . It may sounds like sweet and sour pork dish serve on rice. Don’t let the outlook fool you. It taste more than it looks. The tenderness resembles char siew and the plum sauce change the traditional way of enjoying it. This is more of like enjoying it the roast duck way.

Espresso Chicken – RM25

Tender chicken chop with espresso honey glazed and then roasted to perfection & served with pomelo salad, corn mojo, citrus bean salsa paired with tortilla chips.

If all the foods above still couldn’t satisfy your crave, you should try their SPICY THAI MANGO TUNA PIZZA. They are well famous for their hand tossed thin crust pizza.

It is prepared fresh upon order. The sauce used are not the ordinary Margarita sauce. The sauce were from the dishes above’s sauce. This is a secret recipe created by the chef. Truly a creative approach on creating new dish that leaves a deep impression to the one who eat them.

They are not stingy in the condiments put into the pizza. Top quality ingredients is the priority here.

Unlike commercial pizza sellers which uses electric oven, here at Sanook they are using wood fire oven  that gives a smokey aroma. This is the best way to bake your pizza.
