Our Favorite Medley

 
After our first dine-in together two weekends ago, my brother and I went out to makan-makan again. This is some sort of revenge dining out hah..hah...

We were tossing with a few places to go to when I remembered how wonderful the Middle Eastern Medley was at Serai. So I wanted to eat that again and so did my brother.


On our way there, traffic was very heavy. I guess things are back to normal now. 


At Sea Park, we spotted many food riders outside a coffee shop.


I wonder what is good there. 


The first thing I did (after scanning the check-in code) was check the cake counter. So typical of me.


There were two Pavlovas (we already planned on ordering that), a Burnt Cheesecake, Banofee Pie and a solitary slice of cake which could be the Hazelnut Roche.


As usual, the two coffee addicts must have coffee.


No need to look at anything else, we only want this!


Like before, my brother gave me his chili dip.


The Middle Eastern Medley is consistently good and (to us) it is the best thing on the menu. The lamb shank was fall off the bone tender and the rice was perfectly aromatic and delicious. It was worth braving traffic and the hot sun just to eat this.


Of course we had to have cake.


At first I thought of adding an order for a slice of the Banofee Pie to share but we were so full after our main meal. 


There is another thing I am craving for, ramen! I suggested to my brother that we ought to revisit Ramen Bari Uma. But let us rest our stomachs first.

  1. Wowwwwwww!!! That looks so good, the nasi Arab and the lamb shank!!! Hmmm...no lamb shank for me these days - the place where I usually buy mine is a high risk zone, always in the daily list where there are positive cases.

    Cake looks good too! That does not look like a pavlova? You said you would order that?

    Now, which brother is this? The one still single and available? Wink! Wink!

  2. Oh, that popular seapark coffee shop is Thong Kee, I like the dry fried HarMee from there and their coffee drinks. If your brother is game, both of you could give this coffee shop a try. Ah, I have forgotten whether or not I have ordered takeaway lamb shank from Serai before. I seem to remember that I have but I didn't record it. Maybe one day I will order this lamb shank as delivery from Serai. So delicious! Good to see you enjoy dining out again.

    2. You have a good memory. Yes I did eat this lamb shank in serai restaurant itself back in 2016. Before or starting pandemic, I think I did buy this lamb shank as takeaway but I can't quite remember. Oh dear, losing me memory slowly d. ๐Ÿ˜…

  3. Not into lamb shank...but glad you satisfied your craving! I like how you and your bro term this...revenge dining...lol (my husband is still not into dining out yet). >_<
    I've a Thong Kee in my taman...been there once or twice...nothing special.
    The thing about have a slice of pavlova cake (instead of an individually baked one) is that you'll have to settle for less of the crispy meringue around it..but no loss there (for me) since the meringue is all egg white & sugar anyway! :O

    Nowadays, there are so many people ordering delivery, you'll find the delivery guys 'hovering' around the 'hot (makan) spots' so much so they tend to be very impatient now. If the shop takes too long a time to prepare the food, they're not willing to wait (that was what happened to our delivery yesterday). The rider wanted me to cancel the order coz it was taking too long and he said he'd be missing out on other potential deliveries. I said no! If he doesn't want to wait, I asked him to cancel the job which he didn't want to coz it'll affect his rating. What about my rating? Pandai-pandai to ask me to cancel instead...ish! >:(

    1. I read about Thong Kee just yesterday and it was mentioned in the article that they have computerized queue system to boot!

      I see! Now I understand why one of my orders got cancelled last time. I also see many Grab riders hanging around outside Village Park.

  7. It has been ages I have not eaten at Serai. It used to be orang atas restaurant when it opened the first outlet. Their menu prices were so expensive and they revised it eventually to cater for better market.
    I want to try the Middle Eastern Medley this week!! I am convinced the photo says it's delicious.

    1. The virus is here to stay and we have to accept it. I am quite used to it now, after two years, scanning here and there and keeping my mask on.
