Movie and food I suppose should be in tandem. Well, at least for me. If there's no food tucked in, how then? Honestly, when the tummy growls, honestly, I can't sit still in the theatre and within time, I will wriggle like a worm out of hunger. Thus, before movie time, stomach must be taken care off. At Summit USJ, choices of eateries I won't say are limited but sort of not to our liking. Fast food and what not? Nope. So, up and down we walked, eventually, Garden Cafe (halal), indeed, a comfort zone with decent crowd.
The foreign waiter came with the menu, we looked through and no qualms for the reasonably priced set meals.
The grilled lala and ikan pari set - white rice, two keropok, a slice of cucumber and calamansi lime and the aluminium parcelled with grilled lala, fishy fish, okra and red onion atop, and lathered with a vibrant sauce/sambal. Included in this set was the ice lemon tea (RM11.00). A hearty meal, worth the price. Taste wise - not the best meal, yet I won't complain though lala was rough and tough.
Ice lemon tea was a nice thirst quencher whereas the coffee for the sizzling lamb set - ohhh! The highest diabetes rush which my half-half shouldn't and couldn't drink. Despite gently asking to dilute with hot water, back-back to square one. So, the coffee kept aside and we shared the ice lemon tea. As for the sizzling lamb chop (RM15.90) paired with French fries and coleslaw, tasty but portion a little small for other half's hunger.
We tucked in, settled the bill and left as movie gonna start soon. Garden Cafe, we won't mind returning again - food, price, ambiance and service - okay, can be credited.
