There are lots of restaurants out there for fine dining but with great disappointment in the sense of taste while you still need to pay for a not very affordable price. I have been long heard of a place called House with the great quality of food they served and comes with a price. It is not only a restaurant, but also a bar or wine post for people to hang out on weekends.
To escape from crowds that usually happened at night in the House, I have chosen to come on the day time. So, what's for lunch? The waiter come towards me with two menus - one is for foods, another one is for beverages. As I know although House priced its food in the range similar to Chili's and TGI but the size of the portion is never similar in size. So, in my mind, I already planned to order 2 different courses. What catch my eyes on the first sight is lobster - oh, sorry, RM100++ just for a lobster, I will be broke for that if I order two. As what I have mentioned before, one is never enough. I still doubt that it is only a baby lobster, as I know RM100++ for a lobster is consider cheap.
Ok, my decision is a Baked Atlantic Cod Fish (main course), Penne Pasta with Salmon (the secondary), and a Mango and Lime Lassi.
Waited for approximately 10 minutes, they served me with the Mango and Lime Lassi. The drink is not purely liquid - it is semi-solid. Alright, in common sense, if you are given a lime for your food or drink, the action you are going to do is to squeeze that lime on it. Before adding lime into it, the taste is just a little sour, and after adding the lime, the taste is much better, however doesn't really satisfy me. Disappointment? Not that serious - it was just slightly above average. It was still early, around 12pm and not many customers there. However, customers at that time were mainly Europeans. I saw two European ladies ordered the same drink - maybe is a all time favourite - Berries Booster. I quickly order it for a try.
Another 10 minutes gone, Berries Booster served right before the food. The fruit they served with the drink is not a berry, but a blackcurrant. Nevermind, it still taste like berries with blackcurrant. I have no idea whether they use real berries to blend or mixed up with the berry syrup but seeds of the fruits were break into simpler substance.
Here comes the main course - Baked Atlantic Cod Fish. As you can see, it has green asparagus with baby carrots, and truffle cream covering the baked cod fish with mashed potato beneath. Pairing the fish with the mashed potatoes, the feeling in mouth is just between the half solid and soft with moderate creaminess. The adequate of saltiness with the slight blandness of potatoes matched very well in taste.The baby carrot is crunchy and it is really easy to bite and chew. The green asparagus must be freshly picked before cooking because if the asparagus is too old, the stem is hardly to be chewable. Both of the asparagus and carrots must have soaked with boiled water to make it easy to bite and chew.
Baked Atlantic Cod Fish priced at RM52.9, Penne Pasta with Salmon priced at RM29.9, ordered a Mango with Lime Lassi at RM15.90 and Berries Booster at RM16.90. Total included the tax and service charge is around RM134.00. Normally for guys, a portion of main course will never filled up your stomach. For girls, maybe one portion is just enough.
