Sakura Kristal Restaurant- More shine than substance

"What YOUTH deemed crystal, AGE finds out was dew."
~ Robert Browning

Last Friday we decided to try a new place for lunch. Sakura Kristal at AU2 Setiawangsa. The menu selection was impressively long, full of saliva inducing pictures of and endless choice of both Western and Asian cuisines. After studying the menu extensively we decided on:

  • Chicken Cordon Bleu Supreme (MINE!)
  • Hong Kong Kuey Teow
  • Sizzling Yee Mee
  • Black Pepper Beef Fried Rice

The restaurant was packed with customers and the friendly staff kindly gave us a heads up that the food might be a little late. However, we did not have to wait long at all.

~We waited only 10-15 minutes~

~KING sized sirap bandung- Shared!~

My Chicken Cordon Bleu was, to be honest, a slight disappointment. The coleslaw and mini hash browns were scrumptious, and the mayo dip was nice but the chicken itself was not up to par. It was extremely dry and really difficult to cut up into small pieces (despite the sharp steak knife they gave me). Even with the mushroom sauce that I added on to counter this problem, I was still unsatisfied. The Cordon Bleu stuffing was strangely spicy and had the consistency of a fishball (tasted a bit like that too). I think, if the white meat was more tender, and if it was served with a delicious sauce, it would be a much better dish. Looked gorgeous though.

~Chicken Cordon Bleu Supreme: Wish it was less dry~

~Sizzling Yee Mee: Everybody's favourite, although I'm not a big Yee mee fan~

~Hong Kong Kuey Teow: A bit too salty for me~

~Couldn't finish it had to call for help~

Hmm... at least we got to go somewhere new. Plus, we called Cik Ton in Sabah and out that she had been posted somewhere near Sandakan.
