Hi everyone, recently I tried out this new booking site called OffPeak, and it is all about Food!  With OffPeak, you’re able to book a reservation at a restaurant near you and it has a great selection of restaurants mainly in the Klang Valley, with 2 in Penang and 1 in Pahang

What’s cool about OffPeak? You get discounts depending on the time! For example, at 3-4pm(non-peak period) you may get about 30% discounts off your total bill. And it is also very convenient because you’ll be able to book it online straight away without having the hassle of calling up the restaurant to arrange a booking

So I tried out OffPeak.my to review 2 restaurants, named Fat Spoon, Uptown and La Bodega, Empire Shopping Gallery

So first up: Fat Spoon

Fat Spoon is known for its Nyonya-inspired delights that incorporate family tradition and Gen-Y ingenuity. I brought Eileen along and we ordered a 3 course meal for ourselves J Yippee!

Seared Tamarind Prawns  (RM18)

Verdict: the 5 pcs of Prawns were of medium size, there was a strong taste of Tamarind & tangy after taste. A little overpriced, but if you have the spending power, why not?

Kentucky Fried Oysters with Kaffir Lime Mayo (RM18)

Verdict: There were 4 pcs of oysters of medium size. Batter was crispy even after we waited for about 10 minutes. The Mayo didn’t overpower the oyster and is a great pair.

Moo Moo Rice Bow (RM16) – A hearty bowl of basil beef tenderloin served over rice & topped with fried egg  + ABC soup

Verdict: It was delicious & one of their specialties, beef was tender with a slight basil after taste. The ABC soup washed it all down nicely. Great for the price being paid

Ulam Angel hair Pasta (RM15) – Angel Hair Pasta Tossed in Light Curry Sauce, Aromatic Ulam Herbs & Minced Chicken

Verdict: Very fragrant and has a unique taste. The sambal is slightly sour and not too spicy. Recommendation will not to overdose the sambal or it’ll kill the Ulam’s taste

Fat Chocolate Cake with Ice Cream (RM15)

Verdict: Cake was rich in flavor, but was a little dry and crumbly (probably it’s just that day as I had it before and it was alright), but the ice cream managed to “moisten” up the cake

Last Polka Ice Cream - Salted Gula Melaka (RM7.80)

Verdict:  Definitely Unique, Something you’ll definitely enjoy

It was a great meal over there and the restaurant owner, Michelle was really pleasant with us. Do head over there and give it a try and of course, book it with OffPeak.my!

The next Restaurant I went to was La Bodega at Empire Shopping Gallery

It is one of the most famous Spanish Restaurants in town with plenty of outlets around. It serves great food & alcoholic drinks for anyone who walks in

This time I just ordered a main course with Eileen, so there won’t be much pictures on this one J We sat at the bar & ordered a paella & spaghetti

Paella Fideua (RM27) – Angel hair Pasta Cooked in a Paella Pan with Chicken, Cuttlefish, Squid and peas

Verdict: If you have time to spare, get a plate! As it takes about 30 minutes to cook this but its well worth it is really tasty and it was full with condiments. (not like those normal mee you get with very little meat & condiments)

Spaghetti Meatballs (RM28) – Lamb Meatballs in rich tomato sauce served with spaghetti pasta

Verdict: Love the lamb meatballs, it so much more tender compared to that certain brand everyone loves =P. The Sauce is thick and nice
