Peranakan Platter @ D’Cuisine, Plaza 33

Had a scrumptious lunch the other day at D’Cuisine at somewhat new office building, Plaza 33 at Petaling Jaya. It’s located just beside Jaya 33.

D’ Cuisine is a fusion restaurant, featuring Malaysian unique dishes in a modern way, such as your local Nyonya curry noodles with salmon, and mustard and herb crusted baked chicken among others.

I ordered the Peranakan Platter aka nasi lemak Peranakan that comes with steamed coconut rice, chicken thigh, and prawn in their very own sambal sauce.

The steamed coconut rice is very fragrant that I can eat the rice alone without any condiment or dishes.

The chicken thigh is pretty crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. The sambal prawn is another flavourful condiment that goes very well with the coconut rice.

Price wise, D’Cuisine is slightly on the high side where this plate is RM25. I wouldn’t mind returning for other stuff but maybe restricted to celebration meals only. That’s just me.

myBurgerlab @ Seapark, Petaling Jaya

myBurgerlab, a new burger joint that recently appeared in the neighbourbood of Seapark, Petaling Jaya.

It’s not like any Ramly burger or Burger Kaw Kaw stuff because it’s a burger shop, yet not a restaurant.

Two special things about myBurgerlab are its fresh burgers, which include its patties, buns, and other ingredients like mushrooms, salads, etc, and it doesn’t serve pork.

Most Chinese would asked for a scrumptious pork burger and yet myBurgerlab would just stick to the basic, beef and chicken.

Few of the reasons I think they opted out the pork burger is because of its customer where I think myBurgerlab would love to cater to the different races and religions in Malaysia and also the consistency and efficiency of their production.

myBurgerlab make everything from buns to patties all on their own. So there’s a limit to the amount of buns and patties that they can make, and also to keep them fresh.

Hence I think there’s no plan for pork burger yet until they found the solution to increase their production. They also serve vegetarian burgers!


*The shop*

myBurgerlab is an open-space shop which I think can accommodate 50 pax at a time.

The shop has a photo booth, communal table and an open kitchen. The communal table is to encourage strangers to sit with strangers and maybe they can strike up a conversation while enjoying their meals, quoted from the shop owner, Chin.

You can play in the photo booth while you are waiting for your burger or before you leave the shop. It’s pretty fun if you have a big group of friends together.


*Assembly & Collection*

This is the ‘Assembly & Collection’ window where you can see how the burgers are made and assembled and of course, to collect your burger when it’s done.


*Beautiful Mess 1.0*

This is my first burger, Beautiful Mess 1.0 with Portobella mushroom, sunny side up, mozzarella cheese, and of course a beef patty.

I don’t know how Fat Boy’s burgers taste like or any other burger in other restaurants taste like but this is one very different burger. The first bite definitely gave me a shock and surprise.

“Normal burger patties have 20% fat in but ours only have 15% fat content and no preservatives at all since we don’t keep them for any more than two days,” said Teoh, one of the owners.
