Joseph Kitchen @ Menara UOA, Bangsar

The online vouchers craze has hit the Malaysians mid of last year and had been growing steadily ever since. At the very beginning, I was skeptical to purchase those online vouchers, simply because I was in doubt as some of the deals are too good to be true.

Everything has it's first time. My first purchase was of online vouchers was back in March with MyDEAL, one of the few online voucher portal in Malaysia. The deal entitled me to redeem a 3 course set meal at Joseph @ Kitchen Cafe located in Menara UOA at Bangsar.

The cafe isn't very big but the setting are rather spacious and cozy, offering a relaxed ambiance for those who dine in or even a coffee break.
Little place but a cozy atmosphere

The redemption of the 3 course set meal includes an appetizer, a main course and a dessert to be chosen from the menu specially cater for MyDEAL customers. The deal also includes a free flow of drinks with a choice of ice lemon tea or fruit juice.
Exclusive menu for MyDEAL customers

Ice Lemon Tea
The first serving came alright but the eventual servings were slightly diluted. Well, it's free flow, so I've got no complain but the eventual servings could have been better.

Next, came the appetizer.
Italian's Ball Platter (RM 12 per platter)
Homemade fried cheesy meat balls and potatoes with shrimp.
The meat balls were not as cheesy as claimed by it's description. The potatoes with shrimp meanwhile tasted very ordinary, where it features potato strips coating the near to tasteless shrimp.

Creamy White Mushroom (RM 8)
Stir fried white button mushroom, onions with creamy white sauces and topped with almond flakes and herb. Our second appetizer and this was the bomb! The white button mushrooms were so juicy and blends well with the thick creamy white sauces. The hint fragrance from the almond flakes is like icing on the cake.

The main course came shortly after the appetizers were served.
Carbonara (RM 14)
Creamy white sauce with turkey strips and egg.
Wonderful carbonara, just the perfect flavour and the sauce thickness that I wanted in a good carbonara. Two thumbs up!

Grilled Lamb Chop (RM 15)
Grilled lamb shoulder with black pepper sauce that is served with salad and fries.
The lamb were rightly cooked to my liking as it resulted to a tender and juicy meat. The black pepper sauce were as great, offering a real thick and pepperish flavour to the already well marinated lamb chop. The only downside of this is that the serving of the lamb chop are rather small.

Creme Brulee
Zoe ordered this as her dessert. I don't really fancy this dessert as I find it too sweet for my liking. All I can say is that, the experience of it is like having a pudding with melted sugar as the icing on top. Sounds very sweet, isn't it?

Banana Split
A rather very ordinary dessert that is not helped by the bland taste of the ice cream.

I reckoned the deal was pretty a steal considering the quality of the food that we had and as well as the bottomless drinks which includes the choice of fruit juice (though a little diluted).

For the deal, we paid a total of RM 39.80 for two online vouchers which entitle us to a two set redemption. Total savings from the deal was RM 40 (RM 79.80 - RM 39.80). It has been sometimes since I last had some western food as good as this, and Joseph @ Kitchen certainly does worth a revisit.
