As I recalled, Sri Petaling is always a food hub. We used to look around for lunch or dinner after the great walk / exercise in Bukit Jalil Park (that was years back then when the park was still pretty new and beautifully established).
Recently, Sri Petaling has got a new face. It has now expanded; with new restaurant, desserts houses, bubble tea just popped out along Jalan Radin Bagus. Guess there are more than 50 over restaurants along that road. Say, if I wanna try out one restaurant per day, I may need 2 months to complete the task!
For you who love Hainanese fares, western cuisine and Kelantanese local delights, do check out Herbs & Spices! A simple and cozy restaurant which is manned by a pair of Hainanese husband and wife; while the chefs in the house, they are specialized in both western and local cuisine.
Special thanks to Herbs & Spices for the invitation and Broughtup2share for the arrangement.
Hainanese Mutton Soup (Rm 10.90)
The soup was well-flavored; with the additional of herbs like wolf-berries (gei zi), it was quite similar to the Chinese herbal soup but with additional of soft delicate mutton.
For Western selection:
Hainanese Chicken Chop (RM 15.90)
This was my favourite. The chicken chop was deep fried into perfection and served with french fries and coleslaw.
You can have chicken chop to be eaten alone or drizzle it with the homemade Hainanese sauce for extra kicks
Prawn Fritters (RM 16.90)
Snack for sharing! However, I find the coated batter was thick. Hmmm, still prefer tempura-liked batter :)
Rib Eye Steak (RM 28.80)
As you all know, I don't take beef.
So, for further description, feel free to hop over BroughtUp2Share and eatonlylar.
Spaghetti with Chicken Chop (RM 15.90)
The spaghetti was tossed with chef's homemade pesto sauce, not too sourish but appetizing. Arranged on the size was the Hainanese Chicken Chop as mentioned.
Lamb Shank (RM 26.50)
This is another signature dish of Herbs & Spices. The portion was huge!!! The meat was soft and succulent, drenched with chef's special gravy. You will need minimal jaw activity for this.
For Asian Selection:
Nasi Dagang is another must try in Herbs & Spices; prepared by the house's experienced Kelantanese Chef. There are side dishes such as Ikan Tongkol, beef rendang or ayam berempah for you to choose from. Each plate comes with sweet sambal, acar and a hard-boiled egg.
Nasi Dagang with Beef Rendang (RM 12.90)
Nasi Dagang with Ikan Tongkol (RM 9.50)
Nasi Dagang with Ayam Berempah (RM 12)
Black Pepper Udon (RM 11)
The stir fry udon in black pepper sauce with lots of seafood such as prawns and mussels.
Nasi Goreng Sri Petaling (RM 12.50)
The local fried rice comes with sunny side egg, anchovies and satays. Comes with real wok hei and their satay was really smokey and fragrant.
Sago Melaka (RM 4)
Love the pairing of rich coconut milk and thick gula Melaka with the sago.
Creme Caramel (RM 5)
sweet egg custard
English Triple (RM 6.50)
Apple Pie (RM 8)
served with vanilla ice cream.
