Huck’s Cafe is a home-based restaurant located in the middle of 3-storey houses of the newer Jalan Gasing area. I live near Huck’s but only found out about the place this year.
I brought a few friends, including Mr. T, to dine at Huck’s. I actually reserved a table 3 weeks beforehand, so you can imagine how quick tables are snapped up on weekends. At Huck’s, you are guaranteed to have fresh food so you are required to pick your soup and main 2-3 days before the actual dining date.
Daun Kodok Appetizer
The light & crunchy appetizer (we liked it!) made everyone wonder – what’s coming ahead of us?
Wild Mushroom Soup
Hearty warm soup that has beaten most of the mushroom soups I’ve tasted.
We ordered the lemon roasted chicken (for two) & lamb stew. I let Huck decide on the other meal and it turned out to be the baked fish top with cheese and oats (not pictured). The herb-infused roasted chicken was simply delicious. The lamb stew was amazing too, but I was already feeling stuffed after eating 1/3 of it. My friend who had the baked fish just said, “Mmm, good, good”.
Unlike the soup & main, dessert was chosen on the day itself. We picked all three that were on the menu that evening and ordered an extra creme brulee.
I really love chocolate brownies with vanilla ice cream, more so if the brownie contains walnuts. Huck’s version contained bananas and it covered the chocolate taste, making it more of a banana cake. It’s still a great dessert but I prefer the conventional brownie that produces a rich chocolate flavour.
My friend loved the mud pie that contained a lot of nuts and she would recommend it anytime.
I only had one scoop of the creme brulee and I thought it was alright but one of them had a different opinion.
Dinner at Huck’s Cafe costs RM 88 per person. Apparently, the people whom I dined with do not intend to return but I think I will if there is a bigger group who wants to come along with me.
