Cameron Highlands 2011: Rosette Cafe

**Pork Free**

We are creatures of comfort, so much so that we usually stick to places that we are familiar with especially so when the food is good and the place is always pack to the brim hahaha that was our most important indicator. We discovered Rosette Cafe after we asked around the locals where to eat. Guess what, this was where we have our 2 dinners in a row cos we were just too lazy to look around where to eat, playing safe at least!

On the first evening, we opted for Set Menu A priced at RM42.00 (excluding rice and drinks) which is suitable for 2 - 3 pax but Capt'n Hook was feeling famished and placed an extra order of Stir-fried Beef with Asparagus (RM14).

We started off with some Fried Crispy Spring Rolls. Hot off the oil spring rolls have fillings mainly of turnip strips which is quite ample actually.

A nice hot pot of Claypot Bean Curd that have loads of vegetables that I liked, satiated the cold and wet evening. There were slices of baby corns, cabbage, sweet peas, carrots, enoki mushrooms, button mushrooms (canned :( ) but fresh black fungus.

Who knows a simple Stir Fried Pea Sprout (Pea Shoots) could taste so good here. Could it be of the pea shoots here are so so fresh hence can taste its natural sweetness??? Even Capt'n Hook gave thumbs up to this one.

Luckily there's a dish of BoiBoi's liking in this set - Sweet and Sour Chicken. My boy can live with just sweet and sour everyday! The chicken in bite sized pieces were crispy and lightly coated with the sweet and sourish tomato sauce.

Asparagus is something that Capt'n Hook liked hence he got an extra Stir-fried Beef with Asparagus (RM14). The beef is tender and nicely done, went well with crunchy asparagus and an oyster sauce gravy.

On the next night, Rosette Cafe was jammed packed! Luckily we got hold of the last table. Both the boys opted for Chicken Chop with Orange Sauce. A whole boneless chicken thigh that has been grilled on the pan with a nice sweet and tangy orange sauce was appetising. It was served with some coleslaw; fresh lettuce, cherry tomatoes and canned pineapple slices; and a dollop of mashed potatoes. If not mistaken, all this was for RM12.00.

I had Venison Fried Kuay Teow (RM9.00) that surprises me totally. The tender venison pieces went well with the dry fry version of kuay teow. My only problem is it's just a little greasy for me but it ain't fried kuay teow if it's not greasy haha.

We wanted to head to Brinchang after dinner but it was so foggy that visibility was only like 50 meters. Very very dangerous hence we retreated to the hotel early.
