More Than Just Peri Peri – Nando’s @ Pavilion KL

Nando’s always associated with its famous Extra Hot Peri-Peri flame-grilled chicken. But, actually, Nando’s has more delightful offerings than just its famous chickens.

For the start, Nando’s Peri Kick Starter which consists of 3 pieces of Chicken Wings, 4 Mini Kebabs, Grilled Chicken Sausages, Novo Pita and fresh cucumber sticks with Creamy Peri Dip, is a superb combination which will satisfy most appetites. Novo Pita is amazingly fresh and it’s best eaten when it’s still hot. Grilled Chicken Sausages is tendered and cooked to perfection, best eaten with the Creamy Peri Dip. Mini Kebabs which mixes grilled chicken breasts and capsicums is also delightful, so are the Chicken Wings.

Nando’s Espetada which consists of 4 pieces of grilled chicken thighs with roasted capsicums is served on a skewer. Besides being a pretty sight, the grilled chicken thighs are pretty good too.

Unpleasant Experience – Dome Cafe @ AEON Bukit Tinggi Shopping Centre

Dome Cafe is one of my favorite place as I have mentioned before, especially the Suria KLCC branch. However, Dome Cafe in AEON Bukit Tinggi Klang truly disappoints.

Our orders arrive quite late despite being one of the first few customers. My dad ordered Spicy Olio Pasta but it only arrived after nearly an hour. By then, my dad has already lost his patience and left the restaurant. I do not understand why it needs to take an hour to prepare a plate of pasta and I do not know why Dome does not practice first-come-first-served basis. Shortage of staff should never be an excuse. The staff should have nicely explain the lengthy duration they need to prepare the pasta instead of making the customers wait. Perhaps, Dome Cafe in AEON Bukit Tinggi Klang has never experienced this high turnout of customers on regular days. What’s worse, it didn’t even has a restaurant manager.

Worst of all, it was a dinner my sister has planned to treat the family for mom’s 50th birthday — which in the end, turned out as one of the most dismal experiences I ever had. We vowed not to ever return to Dome Cafe in AEON Bukit Tinggi Shopping Centre.

Anyways, below are my review of the food we had.

Dome's Spicy Chicken Mushroom Pasta

Dome’s Spicy Chicken Mushroom Pasta is the first dish to arrive. It is good enough, at least, my mom and sister manage to finish them.

Dome's Grilled Chicken Turmeric

Meanwhile, Dome’s Grilled Chicken in Creamy Turmeric Sauce is quite blatant. Despite the chicken being marinated with herbs and the so-called creamy turmeric sauce, I found the dish quite blatant and almost tasteless. Maybe the chef did not put his mind to the dish when preparing it.

Please don’t bother to visit Dome Cafe in AEON Bukit Tinggi Klang. There are many other choices available in AEON Bukit Tinggi Shopping Centre in Klang.

Price

  • Spicy Chicken Mushroom Pasta – RM 21.00
  • Grilled Chicken in Creamy Turmeric Sauce – RM 23.00
  • Gourmet Chicken Pie – RM 21.00
