Kitchen Creature @ Centrepoint Bandar Utama PJ

Kitchen Creature is relatively new in Bandar utama's scene. Occupying the same spot as where Manhattan Fish Market used to be, I spotted them from the day they started renovation until the day they opened for business. From time to time Jenn & I would come here for quick lunch or dinner, especially when we felt lazy to venture far. Parking is definitely a breeze compared to the ever popular 1Utama Shopping Centre.

So when my friends came looking for me one day, I suggested this place for dinner. Definitely look impressive from outside!

All of us raved on the interiors too - neat, organised and brightly lit with a lot of pendant lights!

Menu was printed on a piece of paper similar to our buku latihan (exercise book) during our school days!

Creamy Wild Mushroom Soup @ RM5.80 - loved the crunchy croutons with each and every scoop of the soup. Quite filling as the plate was rather huge!

Grilled Lamb Chop @ RM16 - served with choice of brown, mint or signature chilly lime cilantro sauce. A chunky portion of red meat without the gamy taste normally associated with lamb

Chicken Cutlet @ RM11 - breaded, boneless chop with sweet peas and fries. For that price, once can't complain much :)

Grilled chicken, calamari & shrimp @ RM29 - with sauce, chips and buttered veggies.

Marinara @ RM13 - spicy with seafood. For the amount of seafood they put in, it’s a steal. I liked the sauce as well.

House special root beer @ RM4.50 - with ginger slice.. DILUTED!

Limey George @ RM7 - ribena, sprite & lemon. Refreshing although diluted.. I mean, VERY DILUTED!

Leo's verdict - "No Frills Dining" actually means great foods & great value with no extra costs of any kind. No Government tax and no service charge. This is the unique selling point of the restaurant. All the portions were very generous and taste-wise although not the best in town but the selling point IS the price! I wondered why there were no complains by other bloggers when they attended the food tasting organised. Or did George Creature practice different standard for regular customers? Hmmmm... can't give out any final verdict first! I have to go there the second time to see if the standard remains the same or not... since it's so near where I live

leo, if u dont know by now, yes when u r invited, everything is perfect one hahaha..

just like if u invite some1 to ur house to eat, surely u make extra effort to make it taste good rite?

Leo: yikes, the prices for the drinks seem a bit high though. And 29 ringgit for the mixed grill also isn't too cheap. I haven't been to centrepoint in more than a year ... But even when I'm there, I usually head to the outlets that serve booze :D

thule a.k.a leo said...

joe - spot on :P

sean - u mean Bernard's & Champ's??

Sean said...

Leo: yep, those places will satisfy my addiction :D

Hmm, can't blame them for inconsistencies. I mean, there IS a reason for advertorial/invited reviews right? To project the most positive side of the food and service, as well as spreading the brand to the masses.

Prices for most of the food items seem reasonable.
