Boat Noodle, Empire Damansara

Whether it is a fad or just marketing concept, Boat Noodle at Empire Damansara certainly did something right somewhere. They have been mentioned here and there that they have garnered the well deserved attention.

A quick search and you will notice of photos of stacked empty bowls which are associated to this place. It is as though there’s an unspoken challenge laid down for customers to outdo each other with the number of bowls consumed per seating.

Menu by Boat Noodle, Empire Damansara

The queue at any time (but mostly during peak period) can be terrifying is considerably long. Even when we were there on Friday, the shop was filled up to the brim that any customers after us needed to wait for a table.

Bowls of noodle by Boat Noodle, Empire Damansara

The menu is fairly straight forward; dry or soup and beef or chicken. For RM1.90 per bowl, it sounds like a good deal. But one needs to know, to avoid any disappointment, that the portion of the noodles per bowl is tad little (read the comments in Foursquare and you’ll probably get the idea.). On my scale/measurement, I could can gobble them up at a go effortlessly. That said, I have not been to Bangkok yet, therefore it is unfair to compare the portions between them.

Soup Noodle by Boat Noodle, Empire Damansara

Personally, I would go for the soup version due to its flavoursome, spicy broth. It has this satisfying kick with savoury endings. The glass noodles were cooked nicely with a good bite to it.

Between me and my friend, we both ate 14 bowls that day. Were we satisfied? Well… not really but we couldn’t afford to wait any longer as any extra orders will require much patience. Therefore, it is advisable to order as many as you can stomach once you are seated.

Though we could go for another round of steamboat, we were not really in mood for it. Hence, a quick good search has brought us to this place in Tanah Rata, Cameron Highland.

Rosette Cafe, Cameron Highlands

Locating Rosette Café was quite a chore. We roughly knew where the café was but we still had to look out for it. Without a proper signage, I had to rely on photos posted on the internet to search for it. The only landmark that I managed to spot from the photos was the Ambank.

Rosette Cafe, Cameron Highlands

Despite its small space, the café exuded relaxing ambiance with tables and chairs arranged close to one another. The menu was pretty extensive. It has probably more than 50 dishes covering from rice to noodles, eastern dishes to western meals. The café also served steamboat too… pretty much a common thing for restaurants in Cameron Highland.

Drinks at Rosette Cafe, Cameron Highlands

Nothing wanting to go full on, we opted for something simpler; their dinner set meal which consists of bread and butter, soup, main (western) meal and a drink. There were two sets and we went for both; Set Meal A (RM16.50) and Set Meal B (RM18.50).

Soup and buns at Rosette Cafe, Cameron Highlands

The food didn’t take long to arrive although the café was half filled. The warm buns were quite tasty, went well with the knob of butter. The mushroom soup, however, was pretty much run of the mill.

Black Pepper Steak by Rosette Cafe, Cameron Highlands

The black pepper steak (Set Meal B) was pretty tender. But due to their seasoning of sorts, it somehow has the sweet taste after each bite. I didn’t really like it but I didn’t hate it either.

Chicken Chop with Mushroom Sauce by Rosette Cafe, Cameron Highlands

The chicken chop with mushroom sauce (Set Meal A), on the other hand, was pretty good. The chicken was well marinated and deep fried to perfection. The skin was crispy while the meat was still juicy; pretty good to eat it on its own even without the sauce. The mashed potatoes on the side was probably of those instant ones; nothing to shout about.

Rosette Cafe, Cameron Highlands

For the price we paid for, I guess they were quite affordable. The portion was alright and the service was okay. We left the café feeling just right, enough space for a cuppa and dessert.
