we had a nice farewell lunch for ijan and ayeka at rooibos café in ara damansara. they serve decent western food. the price is reasonable i.e. rm20+ for a steak meal, rm15+ for a pasta meal. since we already pre-ordered, it was a short wait. kalau tidak mau kebuluran 18 org nak menunggu steak siap.
clanwilliams rooibos steak - had this, saja suka try yg lain dari yg lain. thankfully it was good. at rm27 it's the most expensive steak on the menu.. tak mahal mana pun. the sauce is soury + a touch of spicy tapi taklah pedas.
prawn fettuccine/spaghetti with cream sauce - liza had fettuccine, ijan had spaghetti. came in huge plates. the sauce wasn't that good, rasa mcm mushroom soup pekat je. some ppl enjoyed it but me being a cheese lover wasn't impressed.
other ppl ordered usual stuff like black pepper steak, mushroom chicken chop, lamb chop etc which i didn't really bother trying, so can't comment on that. but each of them seemed to be enjoying their meal, so sedap laa agaknya laa tu. ni gambar kak linda's mushroom chicken chop.
bolehlaa kalu nak try. the place pun bersih and nicely decorated. got a private section upstairs if u come in a big group. time pegi lunch hour tadi org mas jugak yg ramai. mat salleh pun quite a number, agaknya those engineering ppl yg keje around the airport.
kalau ikut rasa n portion maybe kalah dgn williams kat pj tu, tapi kalau ikut ambiance mmg la rooibos menang besar. biasa laa kan food gerai tepi jalan selalunya lebih sedap dari dlm restoran, cuma korg sanggup ke tak dok atas kerusi plastik sambil kaki digesel kucing2 jalanan ;-)
a group photo.. actually my ofc taklah terlalu gender imbalance, tapi pasal yg lelaki semua tak ikut gi keluar mkn except sorg budak trainee (berdiri sebelah i) ngan sorg staff (behind the camera) tuh nampak mcm dipenuhi bunga2 di taman ;-)
