Boat House @ TTDI


    September must be the peak birth month, where we are having a hive of birthday celebrations for the September babies every Friday/Saturday since the first week of September. Let’s start with divide celebration of Kelvin’s and Poh’s!

    Nestled in the heart of Taman Tun, this cosy little hideaway functions as a quiet neighborhood restaurant. A very low keyed, family/friends owned quaint and cosy dining experience that offer an extensive menu, ranging from Western delicacies to Local delights.



    I love the way they staged the table, the dinnerware match the harmonious purple-red color scheme very well. Very gorgeous indeed!






    Cempedak Chicken (RM9.90). After deseed, the cempedak flesh is stuffed with some seasoned chicken cube and coated in batter to be deep fried. The sweet orange-yellow coloured pulp coupled with the salty chicken cubes is an acquired taste, some of us like it so much but some just shoved it off.


    The Grilled Chicken Chop (RM 19.80) with a mushroom sauce glaze and a side of roasted potatoes is lightly dusted with herbs. The chicken is tender, juicy and well marinated.


    Kampungboy had the Oven Roasted Rack of Lamb (RM 39.80, the lamb is seared, and encrusted with garlic and sweet herb crust and served over a bed of seasonal vegetables The pinkish –read meat is succulent, delicious and done to a turn. The de-boned lamb is a pleasure to eat but only complain is that the serving is too insignificant.


    Kelvin’s Carbonara (RM 23.90) is sinfully rich, egg, cream, butter, parmesan cheese all in one smooth creamy concoction. It is a pleasure for the first few bite, but eventually it becomes too heavy for his taste.


    Piccata Chicken (RM 27.80) is made of simple ingredients such as butterflied chicken, capers, lemons and white wine but Chow find his plate of chicken disastrous because they over laden It with aubergines, zucchinis, shredded cheese, mushroom slices and frozen mixed vegetables. To make thing worst, the chicken is deep fried instead of pan fried.


    Blue Cheese Scallops Poppy Seed Fettucine (RM 28.90). The blue cheese sauce is not pungent and empowering at all, in fact it was a bit bland in taste. Maybe they use a well-balanced, approachable blue instead of the pungent blue? Poppy seed is something different, it makes a terrific contrast for texture and appearance.


    The Tenderloin Steak in Red Wine (RM 45.80). The tenderloin is very thick, but not to say extremely tender and juicy. The birthday boy would be more delightful if he was given with a bigger serving. Nevertheless, this was a truly delicious meal served with some balsamic-sautéed greens and boiled potatoes.


    ML’s Fish and Chips in classic English beer batter (RM 23.80). It is served in a classic and simple way, fish fillets dipped in an ale batter and deep-fried with a side of fried potatoes and malt vinegar, nothing fancy and nothing extra.


    Drunken Prawns with Emperor Noodles (RM 13.90). Served in a clay pot, the succulent juicy prawns are lapped up with delicious Chinese wine soup and the oodles of emperor noodles remains springy even though it soak up the wonderful savory soup. Something that my mum taught me, a fool proof cooking trick for Chinese food is to add a dash of Chinese wine into your cookings. It will never fail to amaze your guest/loved one.


    My order of Spaghetti Mee Mamak (RM 13.90) comes in a to-die-for aroma.
    The additives and taste imparting ingredients penetrate into the glistening noodles and they are very generous with the seafood as you can see from the picture. Pure bliss.

      ooohh… the food presentation look good but too bad the taste was not a good one..

    • boo_licious says:

      I’ve tried the Poppy Seeds pasta before and it was so salty. The burger was much better – juicy and succulent. They do this promo on Tuesdays – eat a main meal and you get a pasta for RM1. Portion of the pasta is of course smaller than the normal size served but still a good deal to sample their food.
