Fork & Spoon, Dataran Sunway

First and foremost, let me clarify this was a food tasting session last December'07 at the restaurateur’s expense. Yes, eating without paying. So will my opinions be biased? Only one way to find out – try it yourself. Before that, do hop over here for the discount coupon here.

We sat al-fresco.
This made sure we were comfortable - no sweat.
Only reason to peruse the menu under such scenario is just to check out the design and price. Recommended or favourite dishes will automatically appear on the table.

Roti Jala (literally translated as Bread of Nets) with Curry Chicken and Potato (RM6.00). Yummy. The plate was empty when it reached our end of the long table. We turned a wee bit ‘thick skin’ to request for an extra serving. It was worthwhile. Oops, caught my own shadow in the picture.
Lamb Chop In Rosemary Sauce served with Mashed Potato and Coleslaw (RM16.00).Me not exactly a lambie fan. Alive they are adorable. On a plate, they tend to smell. So as usual I gave this a miss. So please excuse my blurred picture. However, heard others commented it was good.

‘Kum-Kong’ / Golden Rork Ribs. Calamerised beauties.Penang Prawn Mee with Spare Ribs (RM7.00). It's called Mee Yoke in Klang valley but better known as Hokkien Mee in Penang.Fork & Spoon Thai Laksa (RM7.00)Fork & Spoon Assam Laksa (RM7.00). A light broth version leaning towards those served by the Malays. You know, those we get from seaside make shift stalls or pasar malam / night markets, sans the generous pieces of fish.Rice with Vietnamese Styled Shrimps (RM10.00). This was one of their best seller set order item.Fork & Spoon Nasi Lemak Special (RM11.00). Served with Rendang Chicken, Sambal Sotong, Assam Prawns, Anchovies and Hard Boiled egg) I have been trying very hard to stay away from this favourite Malaysian rice dish, hoping to reduce dress size. Failed miserably. Both in staying away and reducing size. Well at least I can tell myself a few of us shared one serving so more men less share less guilt.

Spicy Prawns with Petai (smelly pods). (RM10.00)
The sambal (a mixture of chili paste) was good with rice but as for the green pods, it’s either you love it or run. Never share toilets with frequent petai consumers. Actually the smell lingers in their breath too. *choke* Gimme durians anytime.

Pulut Hitam ie Black Glutinous Rice with Coconut Milk (RM2.50).
It has been a long while since I’ve enjoyed such a delightful bowl which was not overly sweet. Only gripe was there were some grainy bits. Oversighted rice husks?
These we chose our own.

Special Honey Lemon Juice (RM3.00).Carrot Juice (RM4.00 for regular which was this glass, RM11.00 for jumbo)Tropical Blend (Apple+Orange+Carrot+Pineapple). Regular RM5.00, Jumbo RM13.00. I enjoyed this.
We exclaimed full yet managed to wipe clean this final dish of Ku-Hiong / Home Styled Snack (RM8 for medium serving, RM15 to serve 5-8 pax) meant to be a great accompaniment to beer. Personally I think it will go marvellously with porridge / congee.
Calling Card:-
A gracious Thank You to Big Boys Oven for the invitation.By the way, those are the colourful Big Apple Donuts brought espcially for Sid by 2 pretty floggers. Lucky man.

Juicy pork ribs...Did they add some salt to the coconut milk for the Black Glutinous Rice? It will make it taste so much different.
