Hello... I'm in the midst of revamping my blog to make my life a little easier. So do not be alarmed as work is still under construction.

Review: La Manila Cafe
This is La Manila Cafe in Mid Valley Megamall, which started off as a bakery in Taman Megah. Many years later, they opened a cafe. I think that one was in Taman Tun Dr Ismail but I'm not really sure. Anyway, hubby discovered this cafe serves super delicious Char Kuey Teow (CKT) when he worked in that area some years back. He took me there and I was hooked.
Their rendition is really smashing, huge prawns and loads of cockles, cooked to perfection. Please do ask for the spicy version. The chili does give an extra kick to the CKT. I've tried the non-spicy one which is kinda bland, well maybe because I'm so used to spicy version and my tongue got picky. This is what a mother need to sacrifice so that her kid get to have some food off her plate hahaha. I'm sure a lot of mommies or daddies will relate this. These days I have to order boiboi friendly food, otherwise ordering a portion just for him is just too much.
This is how the sinfully delicious CKT (RM8.50) look like. Don't you wished you're sitting at La Manila Cafe eating a plate now?
Ordered a Chicken Lasagna (RM9.00) for boiboi to be shared with me. Taste wise it was good but I feel there is a lack of lasagna sheets in there. Too much sauce and cheese but my boiboi liked it and ate half the portion.
This is Soursop with Peach syrup ice dessert (RM5.80), I think that's roughly the name but I'm not sure since hubby got boiboi to picked up this one via the picture on the menu. It's actually shaved ice topped with soursop, jelly, nata de coco, colourful large sago pearls, biji selasih and peach flavoured syrup. I like the shaved ice texture here unlike most hawker centre's version. The ice is very finely shaved and had loads of ingredients in there especially soursop. The 3 of us finished this up in no time.
This cafe sell lovely and sinful cakes and brownies. I like the blackforest cake plus most of their cheesecakes. In fact I prefer their cheesecake more than Secret Recipe. If you happen to be around one, check it out yourself. Their HQ is over at Taman Megah (sorry don't have the address) and the other branch we always frequent is at Taman Tun Dr Ismail which I don't have the address either but it's same row as OPSM Optical.
