Had arranged to have dinner together with Rachel after a Friday (28 June 2013) work and we had decided to go Causeway Point for dinner as it was near to Rachel house so she will be able to reach home earlier to rest for the day as we have a long day outing on Saturday.
As usual, there were a lot of people around at Causeway Point and almost all the restaurants we had passed by were full of people inside dining and outside queuing for their turn. This was when we saw Gurney Drive restaurant do not have a lot of people and decided to dine here instead as it was more quiet and comfortable without many people.
Still quite a lot of empty tables not taken up
They also sold some of their products in the restaurant too
We were able to get a table seats without any waiting and the staff was friend to show us to our seats while giving us the menu to look through what we wanted to order.
After ordering our dishes, we happily chat up while waiting for our food to be served. Time taken for them to served the dishes was about 15mins of waiting time but the dishes was not really hot (More on warm temperature heat).
Ampla Juice @ $3.80 (Regular)
For those who do not know, these are made from a fruit called “Buah long long” which was said to be high in antioxidants and Vitamin C. Not as good as the one we had drank over at Malacca trip but still fine and cooling to drink it.
Gurney Special Fried Rice @ $6.90
The fried rice was soft and fluffy with 2 prawns on top of it while few other ingredients like pineapple, raisins, and chicken meat to make the dish taste nicer. In terms of quality, it was not a bad dish to have but in terms of quantity, they are very stingy as the plate of rice was small in portion for a price of $6.90 (Maybe one third of those Chinese Zi Char Stall).
Penang Fried Kway Teow @ $7.50
Same as the fried rice, there were 2 prawns being added onto it with quite a lot of bean sprouts and some other ingredients. The kway teow was a bit oily yet will give a dry taste. I believe these dishes were ready made but re-heated / cooked when customer ordered it. It looked and taste warm and not hot at all.
Grilled Stingray @ $8.20
The chili was quite spicy which was good for those who love spices. The portion was as usual, given in a small portion. Overall this dish was not a bad one as the meat was still soft and juicy.
Lemon Mantis Prawn @ $6.90
This was the first time I had eaten a Mantis Prawn so do not really know what was its original taste like. In this dish, I was able to taste a very strong powering of lemon with some strange smell and I guess that should be the smell of the mantis Prawn. Quite crispy those it felt like the meat was minced with quite a lot of flour so cannot see anything like what I should see in a prawn (Mantis was still consider a prawn type so the meat should be around the same yet I did not see it here).
Penang Cendol @ $3.50
One of the worst Cendol I had ever eaten so far. The ingredients were given in a super stingy way and there was not much taste of any black sugar like what I had eaten in Malacca or some other dessert restaurants. Totally not worth the price of $3.50 for a small portion and stingy ingredient dish.
Trying to have fun with our camera.
