I've been invited for a food tasting event at Alicafe TigaRasa, USJ Taipan recently by Nuffnang. It was actually my first time ever attending food tasting session. Sincerely memang excited gila lah. Terasa macam dalam program JJCM u, enjoying the awesome foods galore!Owh..sooo heaven..=)
As u may know, the famous Alicafe brand not only provides their customers with their various instant coffee for extra energy booster >.<, they have started to explore the new market in the culinary business too. And the latest venture in this business is the opening of new Alicafe TigaRasa Restaurant which started serving Malay cuisines since the end of Dec 2011.This new concept restaurant with English Malay classic modern setting, enough to provide the customers a cozy environment while enjoying the authentic Malay cuisine.
During the food tasting event recently, we have been explained in detail about the speciality they have at this restaurant. The word "tigarasa" itself stands for the uniquely prepared of traditional Malay sauces which are the sambal lemak, gulai lemak and also sambal udang Geragau (Hebi-Hiam).
These 3 sambal and gulai then can be enjoyed with choices of grilled ikan pari or ikan selar, grilled lamb, grilled chicken or grilled mix veggies served in hot plates. All the dishes serve upon the order, thus u may request to have it more spicy or just at moderate way. Yums! Some of the dishes we had during the food tasting are..
Grilled ikan pari with gulai lemak..
A very thick gulai lemak served with bendi and terung too..
For me, its a lil bit spicy.. *berasap telinga* tapi sodap!!
Grilled sayur panggang with sambal Hebi Hiam..
Jangan tak tahu ada petai sekali,..but the dried shrimp paste used memang best sgt..
I love this dish so much...as I'm the big lover terung masak sambal!! *gulp*
And the highly recommended by Alicafe staffs, grilled lamb in sambal lemak..
Those who are the lamb lovers, shud try this!
Other than 3 types of sambal and gulai, Alicafe also served Curry Fish Head which presented in a concoction of Malaysia herbs and this is one of Alicafe recommended dish. I enjoyed this fish curry so much. The curry is not so thick as we had at mamak stall, but the taste of curry and the fresh fish served, enough to make me enjoyed the dish so much.
In conjunction with the coming Ramadhan in few more days, Alicafe TigaRasa has come out with special menu for set berbuka puasa. This Istimewa Ramdhan Set which includes a cool refreshing kurma drink, kurma and Hokkaido cake as dessert, having promotion as low as RM10.90 for one person.
