Station 1 Cafe
This is what everyone might have been waiting for! This might be the one that everyone had been hunting for! NO? DON'T AGREE? You're right here now ain't it? Ever since the banner were review, Mirians had been looking forward for their opening and they had their soft opening on 17th May 2011 and grand opening on coming 25th May 2011.
Station 1 Cafe had been a great cafe at West Malaysia, and everyone wonders how great can they do at East Malaysia because franchise restaurant don't really give much good expressions to the locals BUT excluded the fast food chain outlet. Drop by there today with reservation and I feel lucky that I did because after moment we get our seats the place was fast packed up with people.
This mini stage is for band performers like what we formerly have for Halo Cafe but they did not turn out success so I'm crossing fingers hoping that this would last because they had quite great range of food for you to be picky.
YESTEA (recommended by Station 1)
Did not get to taste it but somehow it was quite nice for a hot sunny day. Cooling and refreshing to cool your throat.
Sweet and sour taste just enlighten your taste bud isn't it? This is very normal nowadays instead of just plain Ice Lemon and Lemon Tea all the time? Boring pick ain't it?
3 Layer Tea
This is to say speciality of Miri and I have no idea how do they have it in their menu. I wonder do they purposely have it for us like Secret Recipe have Sarawak Laksa in their menu or it was same all over Malaysia. Then it would be good thing for KL-ians because they can taste 3 layer tea anywhere in West Malaysia even mamak stalls.
This taste a little awkward, just a little because it doesn't suits well with milk. Papaya and watermelon is still a better combination.
Upset with long waiting hours for your food? Boring and mad when time runs and you're extremely hungry? Guess what? They have some toys for not only kids but adults to play. No restriction BUT remember to read instruction before you proceed. Here goes what we get.
I don't even get to start yet and our food is ready to served our drooling tummy. Just right on time and the appearance are truly tempting. Let's see how far different can it taste.
BABA RENDANG CHICKEN RICE
This is definitely as good as how it looks. Awesome taste, awesome aroma, awesome look. Would rate 8.5/10. Not giving out full because I didn't how the rice texture because it was a little too hard and cold. Other than that the meat was spicy enough for me to challenge (not spicy lover), and still could not stop having more of it.
CHICKEN HAM AGLIO OGLIO
This is a little disappointed because it doesn't smells nice and either taste pretty good. Mr Ho's will still be my favorite pick so far.
KONG PO CHICKEN CHOP RICE
This was not bad. Presentation wise and taste wise. Their kong po does not really hot & spicy. Maybe fusion style but still my colleagues did not like the rice too.
ILLED CHICKEN CHOP RICE
This was nice but little unexpected because I never ever see any chop that serves with rice and they did. Fusion I shall assumed? I tell you this was good. I love the gravy and simply greatly cook chicken chop. Soft enough for you to chew and swallow. Doesn't need much muscle of your mouth.
This is total disappointment because this looks total different and I mean REAL DIFFERENT from what it appears in the menu. Even though picture is for illustration but somehow this is a little too over?? Now I know why the westerns never have any picture on their menu. Put aside the appearance and go for the taste. Not really satisfying my taste bud, I think might be taste better with tomato paste?
GREEN DREAM VEGGIE SALAD
Who says vegetable does not taste good? Who says lettuce and capsicum can never be nice? This bowl of salad might change your thought. Nothing special but I can see that they have fresh vegetables and that was a real important aspect for serving great food.
All of us was satisfied with our lunch and the food was satisfying of course exception for the rice part. Definitely would come back for their appetizers and western steak from far New Zealand! Tempting? Head down and try it out instead of waiting!
