Spice Grill @ Puteri Harbour

Puteri Harbour is one of the good place for an evening stroll where you can see the sea (more like a small lake) and yachts (actually it is more windy in the afternoon but the weather is just too hot!)

Spice Grill is located at the Little Red Cube at Puteri Harbour. It serves two types of menus, Indian and Western. It is more known of its Indian cuisine, however, some of the western dishes are considered above average as well.

Normally when we have Indian food anywhere, Indian restaurants will serve Papadam (a kind of cracker ) after placing your order and before your meal is served. Papadam can be a lil bit too salty, but I still love it as a snack before meal. So we only ordered two Indian dishes, Butter Chicken Masala and Lamb Masala (Lal Maas). Butter Chicken is my favourite Indian dish no matter which Indian restaurant I go, I will order this dish. Butter Chicken tastes sweet, mild spicy and with special aroma of butter, coconut milk and spices. The Lal Maas here is good too, shredded lamb with very yummy and slightly spicy masala. We have cheese naan (naan, oven-baked flatbread) and steam Basmathi rice to eat with the butter chicken and lamb masala. Heavenly delicious and very satisfying!

Garlic Cheese Prawns, this dish was recommended by the staff. the prawn is almost the size of my palm, the size makes you feel very satisfied with one bite of prawn which can stuff your mouth full. The sauce is just nice, not too cheesy. A good combination, love this too!

Seafood Aglio Olio is of average restaurant standard. Considered not bad.

I love their cod fish much! Succulent, juicy, nicely cooked with chef’s special sauce. The sauce tastes slightly sweet and spicy but not too strong that you can still taste the freshness of the cod fish. Thumbs up for the cod fish! Maybe for guys, the portion might be slightly small. For girls, the dish might be just enough and slightly filling.

This platter is called Thrill that allows you to try different meats in a plate. Sharing by two girls will be just nice.

  • Prawn cooked with herbs: Dun really like it, I will recommend garlic cheese prawn if you wanna eat the prawns here.
  • Lamb rib: Dun really like the sauce and I dunno how to describe the sauce
  • Chicken Corden Bleu: Average
  • Grilled Vege: Average
  • Cod Fish: Good
  • Mashed Potato: I am a potato lover, so as long as the mashed potato taste normal, I will still love it.

 

In the end, although not every dish suits my taste bud, there are still some good dishes worth trying! And maybe those doesnt suit my taste bud one, will suit yours.

Last but not least, maybe you would like to make a reservation before you go.

Address and phone is in the following receipt. Maybe you would like to know the price before you visit the restaurant, as Spice Grill is quite a premium restaurant. you can refer to the receipt to have an estimation.

Cats Cafe. Cats at their Sanctuary @ JB Town

This is a place where all cat lovers will love!  The Cats.Cafe!

(Well, im not a cat lover, but i love all small furry animals ^^)

This is a cafe where the cats are able to move around freely, you can touch and pat the cats while eating, having high tea and chit chatting with friends! (They have house rules to protect the cats, such as  you cant frighten the cats, cant chase the cats and etc. They will give you the house rules once you are seated). My friends and I gave it a nickname, the miaow miaow cafe. haha!

Exterior

The cafe is a single-storey bungalow house. (It is a bit hard to find becos it is hiding in housing area)

The menu of Cats Cafe. The cafe serves a variety of western food. The food tastes generally good. Since there are currently so many cafes in Johor Bahru, and most of them serve western food with very standard and similar taste. If others considered as average, then I would rate Cats Cafe’s food as slightly above average which means it tastes slightly better and different from the other “general & popular” cafes in Johor Bahru.

The price is on average side for cafes. When I first saw the price for platters i was shocked but the portion of the platter is for 3 to 4 servings.

This is their Signature Tokyo Chicken Chop. I like the sauce, it is sweet but not too sweet, match just well with the grilled chicken chop and my favourite, mashed potato! (apparently something different from the chicken chop offered in other cafes, provided you love sweet stuff).

Warakuya Japanese Restaurant 和乐屋 @ JB

I am a frequent customer to Warakuya Japanese Restaurant (和乐屋). Few years ago it was a small restaurant at Pelangi, today it has its branch at sutera. Another new branch is going to be open at Austin.

Love to have lunch or dinner with friends there not just because the food is nice, the atmosphere is good. However, I prefer early reservation due to sometimes, really have to queue for quite some time outside especially during dinner time at the Sutera branch!

Warakuya Jap Food

They serve hot towel once you sit down at your table. I really appreciate this extra service! Although it is just something small or unimportant, but this hot towel and hot green tea really make me refreshed. Feel that all that tiredness and unpleasant emotions at work are all gone!

sushi

Classic sushi at Warakuya! Cheese and Prawn, Duck and Mango, mentai salmon (forgot whether it is salmon or other ingredient), haha! ^0^

sakae clams

I order this dish everytime I go Warakuya. Steamed clams with wine, erm~ super delicious! (But sometimes it is out of stock if I go too late T^T)

salmon sashimi

Salmon Sashimi! (but I dun like wasabi >_<)
