Deep fried Dory Fillet with Salsa Sauce, served with Cream of Tomato, and Sauteed Potatoes, Onions & Mushrooms
Forgot to blog bout this one, hmm. One find day, we ran out of idea on where to dine. Then colleague rmbr i mentioned bout Brewster's before. It is located on the beginning of Jalan Sultan Idris Shah (Brewster Road), near Padang Ipoh, right at the curvy corner opposite FMS Bar & restaurant. Quite hidden, mind you. And parking's a mess. But it's just a short walk from our office, muahaha ... Anyway, the set lunch that day was Deep Fried Dory etc etc ... (too long la the name of the dish). RM18++. Well, won't burn a hole, so we stepped in.
Ambience was nice, pretty dark, wooden tables and stools. Yeah, heard me right, stools. Oldies certainly not recommended as prolonged sitting may hamper your ability to walk straight. ;)
Menu was simply, TOO simple in fact, printed on color papers, with no photos whatever. Prices ranging from RM20+ for mains, and RM4 to RM8 for drinks. Oh, set lunch DOES NOT include drinks, though plain water is free. Ordered Brewster's Special Ice Cream Coffee RM8.50. Frenz ordered Ice Lemon Tea RM6, and Coke RM4.
Food arrived quite promptly, funny thing is they serve soup together with the main dish, as shown in the picture above. Hmm, to dig in the fish 1st? Or savour the tomato soup? decisions ... decisions ...
Tastewise? Fish was moist, not too dry, though typical dory smell existed. Wonder they use Pacific Dory? Or the cheaper Cream Dory variety.Hmm ... Cream of Tomato soup was tasty, enough zing, and not too creamy. Best part was, the sauteed potataoes. WOW, so so delicious! with caramelized onions and mushrooms (button version), this side dish got the thumbs up. But too small a portion la ...haha... Oh, they serve the fish with greenish sauce around the plate, tasted slightly sweet and spicy. Probably honey mustard, but I'm not sure. The coffee with ice cream was normal, nothing special. Just your typical vanilla ice cream in milk coffee.
Dessert served was Chocolate Brownie, topped with Sugar Dusting. Small portion, but moist and chocolatey enough. It was warmed before served, the way brownie should be served. Nice.
Total for 4 pax = RM99.00. Not bad, but slightly small portions. Hopefully the ala carte dishes will fare better .... Til the next time ....
