RUEBEN'S Bistro & Pub - Taipan, Subang Jaya

Rueben's Bistro & Pub. The affordable watering hole for near and afar customers who like a drink or two or "the more the merrier" before going home or don't want to go home. Beer as far as I know, is the main crowd puller though some prefer to park bottles and if you are amongst the early birds, you will most probably notice grey hair, no hair, pot belly "Men From Uncles", and maybe a few women around. These customers somehow will disperse before or just after the clock strikes 8.00pm and then, almost like silence is golden environment before the hip-hop crowd stroll in later after 10 o'clock or so. What about my other half-half? Unsure I am if he is among the early or later customers but he sure carry home some juicy stories to my ears. Why did I end up in RUEBEN'S Bistro & Pub? For dinner actually. 
Ambiance? Like most bistros and pubs. Nothing special. We once we arrived, after my other half-half greeting the regular faces, we decided to sit outside for avoiding the smokiness and almost full house noisiness inside. Menu for food ordering? Just a basic one, and we calling for lemon tea, mutton nasi lemak, lamb chops and sky juice. 


Popping up soonest was ice lemon tea which by far tasted like plain ice tea. What happen to squeezing in lemon juice? I think the person who fixed ice lemon tea didn't know which is and what is lemon.        
Thereafter, Mutton Nasi Lemak and Lamb Chops were served. Mutton Nasi Lemak. Not too bad. Sambal especially kicking in spiciness and tastiness when eaten with coconut milk rice, fried egg, mutton curry, cucumber, fried peanuts and anchovies. Mutton curry must receive quite a rave actually.    
Lamb chops I tucked into on the other hand? Almost a disaster. Especially the pepper sauce atop lamb chops. As if right out from store bought pepper sauce. Lamb Chops however must be praised. Nicely cooked tenderness, but without a tasty sauce, you tell me? Like? What about the fries and coleslaw? Anyone for the matter can be a skillful chef to these two sides.  
Overall, I think RUEBEN'S Bistro & Pub can remain forever as a watering hole. Food wise, there is definitely room for improvement.

    2. Quote: "the more the merrier" before going home or don't want to go home???" ha, dream on, the MALE boss would chase you out if you are the last customer (yes CUSTOMER), without asking he would ask the staff to turn off the music and whatever to give you a BIG HINT that "hey you better go".
      What kind of service is this?

Malaysian Sodhi (Indian Coconut Milk Stew)

Sodhi. Coconut milk infused and laced ( Shrimp Coconut Milk ) Indian coconut stew. In fact, sodhi is the branching of  Masak Lemak ( Vegetarian Malay Spinach Coconut Stew ), or vice-versa or whichever. Sodhi is definitely a popularity amongst the Indians and without a doubt, in my house as well. Sodhi is usually drenched over rice, and eaten alongside side dishes. Trust me, nothing like sodhi soaking or flooding up your rice and then, using your hands for mushy-mushy diving inside eating style. Sodhi. Like, every once a week in my house. In other words, a regularity and it is a dish that can be put up effortlessly. Needless to say, easy cooking and mind you, there are other variances of sodhi too, which I have already shared before ( Malu Kirata , Kiri Hodi , Prawn Sodhi & Cabbage Sodhi ). This latest sodhi? Basically, the humble, basic simplicity, but why a Malaysian Sodhi? Well, Cooked by this “The Crazy Lover” who is a typical, true and true Malaysian, and cooked in her, most o

Mochakottai Karuvadu Kulumbu (Field Beans Salted Fish Curry)

Look at this earthen pot and in it thick, salty, spicy and vibrantly exciting to our palates and eyes  Mochakottai Karuvadu Kulumbu (Field Beans Salted Fish Curry). Like immediately can trigger our hunger throne right? I know. I am definitely a big fan of this Indian style salted fish curry and salted fish on the whole by itself ( Spicy Ikan Bilis Potato , Sambal Tumis Ikan Bilis  &  Sambal Kentang Ikan Asin ), can drive me crazy because I so love saltiness. In fact, every day can be a salted fish meal day for me ( Salted Fish Pickle , Bean Sprouts Salted Fish  & Steamed Pork Salted Fish ). But, I think we all know it? Too much of saltiness and salt can ruin our health? Of course. Then again, there is such a thing as every now and then saltiness as our best friend? How do make this salted fish curry? Nothing much, no major confusing cooking matter ( Salted Fish Bone Curry ). My recipes as always will never cause you to struggle in the kitchen. Ingredients listed below

Restoran Orkid Thai - Section 9, Shah Alam

By the third day, Iphone 7 started showing its dark side. Really a terrifying-horrible shocking discovery, it kept rebooting every now and then for no apparent reason. Obviously, I couldn’t believe my eyes. Duh! Its a brand new phone I paid from  my savings ( Da De Bak Kut Teh Subang Jaya ), never ever have I encountered such a problem with my previous faithfully yours 6 year old Iphone 5. Absolutely heart wracking, I really couldn’t find the time ( Karaikudi Chicken Curry & Fikcles Cafe Taman Tun ) to rush to the service centre amidst the busyness of getting ready for the family wedding and another travel venture ( Oats Fried Prawn s ). Keeping my fingers crossed, hoping it’s just a minor teething problem, I went ahead with shopping nearby Plaza Shah Alam and Plaza Masalam. Accompanied by my niece, we bought a couple of things and then of course, naturally, shopping is more or less regarded as synonymous with hunger throne.
