Last night , Claire, Jo and myself had a wonderful time dining at Olivenz Cafe in Medan Ipoh and just us ladies coz Daddy couldn't make it :) So, it turned out to be a ladies' nite out for us three. We chose Beacon Point but unfortunately for us, it was their rest day, so we went to Olivenz instead. It was a quiet nite and we had a nice time chatting and laughing the whole night long. No one can be sad with Claire around. She makes us laugh with her funny experiences in life and her blogging and we had a wonderful time together as Jo would like to have some time with Claire before she goes off next Friday.
*Thanks Claire for your wonderful presence there last night. The food tasted better with you there :) Let's do this more often :)
The food served there is actually not bad when it comes to taste. I love their red wine sauces that goes with their grilled chicken, salmon and lamb. The mashed potatoes with lots of gravy was a wee bit saltish for me but their mashed potatoes texture is something to boast about....fine and smooth texture. Their portion of meat has shrink lately. Those days it was a much bigger portion...all thanks to the economy downturn! Claire ordered BBQ Salmon with red wine sauce, Jo ordered grilled lamb in red wine sauce and yours truly ordered Grilled chicken with red wine sauce. We think alike for we are feathers that flock together :p red wine all the way. We ordered another side dish ...deep fried soft shell crabs and we were disappointed for the crabs turned out to be small in pieces and the price was expensive..
this is Claire's BBQ Salmon...can you see the red wine sauce
in the small white bowl ? That was great and I want to learn
how to make that sauce so that I have an excuse to buy
myself a bottle of red wine :p
a closer look at her Salmon chunks... RM17.80 for 2 sticks of
salmon chunks...but it was delicious alright so worth the price
this is the side dish we ordered ...deep fried soft shell crabs
RM 12.00 for 6 small pieces...expensive!
taste wise it was okay... I can finish the whole plate in few seconds...
this is Jo's Grilled Lamb in red wine sauce...tender and juicy
this is quite a big portion , there are 3 big pieces
RM15.90 if I am not mistaken
this is Momsie 's Grilled Chicken in red wine sauce...this
is indeed delicious..the meat ws tender and juicy but a small piece
of upper thigh...on the whole the meat portion has really shrink!
this is their iced honey lemon juice @ RM5.90 per glass
to quench our thirst after such a delicious meal
* We are looking forward to another night out like this.........:))
Beacon Point this time ..Claire?
Claire is busy entertaining her Canadian friends the next few days,so
