I kept seeing Henry Cook’s dishes on Foodspotting. Their specialty is Mr. T’s favourite dish, laksa, so it’s an opportunity to try a new place to see if we would return.
The place is small, runs on the order chit system and there aren’t many selections from the menu. On that Saturday I went, I wanted to try their kebab but they didn’t serve any on weekends. Hmm.
Nyonya Laksa w/ Egg, RM 7.50
Thick spicy soup with glass noodles that came with a whole boiled egg that wasn’t sliced. I didn’t like the spicy yet flavourless soup, but as usual, Mr. T said it was not bad.
Chicken Roll w/ Potato, RM 16.50
This was another famous Henry Cook dish but it wasn’t as tasty as it looked. The sauce for the chicken was bland and I felt that the chilli (or tomato? I can’t remember) sauce didn’t go well with the dish. Personally, “special” sauce should be the strongest appealing component in a dish and should not be mixed with tomato/chilli sauce – it destroys the attempt of making it “special”.
I don’t agree with this huge statement they have in the restaurant as there are very limited choices. Henry Cook’s still considered new but it definitely needs a menu revamp when more restaurants occupy the mall.
Chrysanthemum tea (very diluted): RM 3.80
Plain water: RM 1 (unsure whether it’s refillable)
