Bloggers Food Tasting Event @ Skewers

Away from all the hustle and bustle of KL city life, tucked away in a new mall called Subang Avenue, lies Skewers Restaurant & Bar.

I was invited for a food tasting event for bloggers by Josh and I would say this is the next hot spot in KL/Selangor! Why so? Find out from the list of excuses/reasons why you should head your way there to give this new restaurant a shot!

1. Great service

So, Crystal and I reached pretty early despite all the traffic along the LDP. The friend who invited me, Josh, was caught up in the jam and considering Subang Avenue was pretty new (hardly any shops were opened for business), we walked into Skewers and blabbered our way through and the next thing we knew, we were seated comfortably with a complimentary drink, each.

Thanks to the owner, Ken Lau. At least we didn't feel lost/out of place.

2. Finger licking good FOOOOOOOOOD!

This was the main reason I agreed to attend this event. Food! Now let's review what we had.

Skewers Chicken Teriyaki

OMG I love this dish. The chicken's really tender I couldn't get enough of it. Nom nom nom. Luckily it was placed right in front of me :D

Skewers Butter Prawn Pasta

Prawn, salad and mashed potatoes were yummy but I didn't have enough of the pasta for me to savour.

Skewers Lamb & Herbed Rice

This is a middle eastern dish whereby the rice was rich with various herbs. The lamb was tender and I love the veggies! The only thing was, I didn't know how to appreciate the rice. Such a waste.

The Ultimate Skewers Glutton Burger

This was delicioussss. Very Mexican-ish.

Then came DESSERTS!

Skewers Tiramisu Cheesecake

This is honestly the 2nd cheesecake I didn't mind eating. The first cheesecake I liked was from Indulgence, Ipoh. I'm not a big fan of dairy products so cheesecakes are out of my diet. Not even the ultimate marble cheesecake and baked cheesecake from Secret Recipe marvels me.

Skewers Chocolate Mousse?

I kind of forgot the name of this cute dessert. Crystal, Tim .. anyone, help?

Hmm. I didn't really like the whitish creamy stuff on the top layer (told you I'm not a big fan of dairy products) but I went weak the moment I tasted the chocolate mousse at the base

All of us - Crystal, Tim, Josh, Chris and myself gobbled up all that was presented before our eyes. Yes, it was that good.

3. They serve Hoegaarden Beer

Great drinks to compliment great food.

Here's a random pic of FHM Tim Chew with his Hoegaarden. That's all he cared about. LOL

4. Ambiance

The interior has a warm and relaxing feel to it.

Friendly kitchen staff

Kudos to the unique wall design!

5. Free entertainment

No, it's not the typical live bands you get from any other places but rather ..

A live magic show by one of Skewers' shareholders - David Lai! Here's a pic of him entertaining our table! Crystal looked really pleased. Hehe.

David performed a magic trick for a group of foreigners seated a few tables away (I kaypo go and watch) and his act got them yelling "WTF" and "F***" so many times I had to excuse myself from the table to prevent language pollution in me.

6. You get to meet famous peeps!

And get their autographs/name cards/contacts, that's if you are bold enough to approach them. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to steal photos of celebrities/pageant winners/famous peeps at Skewers from David's FB but .. guess what?

I bumped into Men's Uno Model Search winner - Adrian Chee!

I put on my thickest skin mode ever and asked if he minds taking a picture with an ordinary girl like me. Although damn malu, I had zero regrets. It was such a privilege!

Click here and here for pictures of him on his model search competition.

7. A great place to chill with great people
