It was a Saturday morning and I'm unusually up early, excited for a visit to Tan Chong Motors Assembly plant in Serendah. It's been quite a while since I've been on a road trip to anywhere and I'm hoping that this would be as much fun as the time where I embark on the road trip to Malacca on the Nissan Almera.
I met up with other bloggers & media with the PRs in charge at the Nissan showroom in Section 14.
Asahi Super Dry AllStars Tour Party but I'm still rearing for some breakfast. Still, I need to patiently wait for the rest to arrive.
When the party was complete, we headed off in 2 MPVs - the Grand Livina to our breakfast destination.
Personally, I've never been to this place and have never eaten in it before but everytime I pass by, I'm sure to see an insane crowd of people in the restaurant. On that day, I get to savor the dish to see what the fuss is about.
After a quick check on Foursquare to see what are the comments of some customers are, a lot of them commented that it's the best nasi lemak that they've had and so I decided to try just that....the Nasi Lemak Ayam Goreng. I ate it together with a Neslo Ice:
Let's be honest, I don't expect fine dining material presented in a kopitiam-like environment like this but at least put out decent dish.
Aside from the presentation, I was hoping for a phenomenal tasting experience for this RM8.30 plate of Nasi Lemak. I was again disappointed when I dug into my food to taste it. Aside from the rice having a bit of a fragrant Pandan flavor to it, the rest were nothing special. It's just your usual fried chicken with sambal and hard boiled egg on some fragrant rice. For a price of RM8.30, I expected more out of it.
This place is so popular that it even had signages indicating to patrons to not use their laptops/notebooks in here for fear of you lingering around (or that's the impression that I'm getting):
After that experience, I was baffled on why I had such contrasting views on this restaurant as oppose to the public and media. I know I can be a rebel at times but this is ridiculous. Later that day, a foodie friend of mine related to me that Village Park Restaurant used to serve really good Nasi Lemak but now it's just average. This explains things. I wonder do other people feel that way too.
Anyway, after that breakfast, it was straight to Tan Chong Motors Assembly Plant in Serendah.
An awesome looking President car was on display at the reception area:
So off we go for lunch at Section 17, my old home area.
The place that was chosen was Decanter:
Personally, I love the huge shelf with the various liquors on display:
The drink that I opted for was the Ice Blended Lychee with Plum (RM8.50):
My blogger friend Joshua had the Oreo Milk Shake:
For my meal, I had the Carbonara Spaghetti:
Joshua had the Cod Fish which was one of the Special of the Day:
When dinner was finished, we reached the Section 14 showroom at about 3.30pm which concludes our road trip on the all new Grand Livina - "Drives like a sedan, fits like an MPV".
