coke showdown...

Ek het verlede week die Van Coke Kartel show by Aandklas gaan kyk as deel van hulle "Haal asem Kwagga Toer". Zebra and Giraffe was eerste op die line-up en ek was nogal impressed - nie baie nie, maar genoeg dat ek hulle weer sal gaan kyk. Hulle het baie fans en veral die meisies gaan mal vir hulle. Hulle het 'n goeie show gegee. Ek het heeltyd gewonder hoekom hulle almal presies dieselfde lyk? Hulle dra almal dieselfde klere en het dieselfde haarstyle. Mmmmm..

Van Coke Kartel was beter. Hulle het opgedaag in mini-suits en het heel ordentlik gelyk. Ek dink ek sal nooit ophou om hulle live shows te gaan kyk nie. Hulle gee net 'n cool show. Ek was minder impressed met die crowd. Daar was 'n paar regte dik ouens wat heel voor bo almal uitgetroon het. En hulle het geweier om 'n voet te beweeg! Dit het gemaak dat die crowd met alle geweld gedruk en stamp en stoot het. Maar anyway, dis nou verby en dit was awsome!

I like! I like! Keep doing what you do, boys!

Last weekend I went to the beautiful Onrus for the Kalfiefees. I was quite impressed with this year's festival setup - complete with a Computicket stall and its own art route! The festival's line-up looked fantastic, with plenty of things to see and do.

On Saturday I also went to the Hermanus Wine Festival. This is a fantastic event if you are a good-food-and-wine person. With plenty of yummy food and wine/beer stalls plus live music, you can stay for the whole day (and come back for more the next day!). 

We had a great time tasting some samoosas and local beer. And I had the opportunity to capture some great shots:

                                                                        "Pony" rides.

                                  This guy had an interesting stall - He engraved words/art on glass. 

                                      "Piano Ben" and his band entertained the crowd on Saturday:

                                                                 Plenty of wine tastings:

                                                                              And food:
                                                     Everyone enjoyed the good food:

 If all the people, food and wine become too much...Head down to the beautiful Hermanus Waterfront for some whale spotting!!

On Saturday evening we went to Hermanus' famous Gecko Bar. We had a festival dinner  - in the form of two yummy pizzas. Then we headed down to the Kalfiefees Kuiertent in Onrus. With some live music and the bar being super cheap, we had a good time sitting underneath a heater!

I will definitely say that both the festival was a success and it is surely growing every year! This is definitely one to mark off on your arts calender for next year!

Well done!

Have a great week!

Huck's Cafe @ Jalan Abdullah, Bangsar

Posted by Aileen Raymond Saturday, August 6, 2011 0 comments

Heard Sharmayne talked about wanting to go to Huck's Cafe for some time and so we decided to try out the place for ourselves! Made reservations on a Sunday night and off we go! Since it's our first time there, we had a pretty hard time finding the place because we were not really sure of the location. Little did we know, we actually found the place but we went in circles for about 30 mins as there is no signboard. It's actually located in the housing area. This is what happens when you don't know roads =.=

Went in and was greeted by the lovely and spacious atmosphere. We were seated on the floor.

Huck's Cafe serves about 20 pax per day. It's a private kitchen which is pleasant since its concept is home cooked food :)

Booking must be made at least one or two weeks in advance to be safe. The earlier the better :)  They don't take walk-ins. Menu must also be chosen beforehand as they shop for fresh ingredients everyday.

But Huck's didn't manage to get our chosen menu due to miscommunication. So instead he gave us a surprise!
Basil Seed Mint Soda
The first drink to be served after we arrived. It's pretty refreshing :)

Serewak Acar

Drinks and appetizer is served for the group. Whereas the rest it based on individual orders.
Pumpkin Soup
This is one of the yummiest pumpkin soup that I've tasted so far :)

Wild Mushroom Soup
I ordered the mushroom soup but I liked the pumpkin soup better. The wild mushroom soup was pretty disappointing though.

The meals take time to come so you must be prepared to be patient :)

Now, to the main course. Each dish was shared among 5 of us as it can get pretty filling/boring to eat just only one dish right?
Cottage Lamb Stew Pie
The tender and juicy lamb is cooked just right. According to Amelia, it can be pretty salty after awhile so it's good to share this dish :)

Grilled Salmon Garlic Asparagus Lime Rice with Orange Butter Sauce
Lovely combination especially with the fresh salmon!

Huck Lemon Roast Chicken
The chicken was slightly dry but the potatoes are lovely. haha.

Wild Rocket Chili Chicken Spaghetti
We got amused by the name of the dish at first. The  leafy greens is actually a herb called Wild Rocket. Learnt something new :)
Seafood Risotto Party Mix ft NZ Mussels
Fresh seafood but I didn't try much because I was already stuffed by the end of the meal.

Forgotten what is this drink called but its pear and sour plum if I remember correctly.
Great drink to suppress the bloated feeling after the main course and also make space for dessert! :D

Sharmayne, Me and Amelia.

Time for dessert!
Durian Mud Pie Ice Cream
Normally I do not fancy other dessert created from durian but this durian ice cream is exceptional. It is a definite MUST try!

Chocolate Mud Pie Ice Cream
Did not try this but Charles said it's good as well.

Creme Brulee
My favourite creme brulee, so so awesome and sinful!

After dessert, you can have tea or coffee. 
Alan, Huck Seng, Me, Amelia, Sharmayne and Charles.
Chatted with the owner Huck Seng for a while and he brought us to tour around the cafe. Fell in love with the outdoor garden setting!

Dinner is at RM88 per person. The main course was alright but maybe we had high expectations so we were a little let down. BUT the dessert was definitely worth it. My friends described it as gastronomic. LOL.

Another thing I enjoyed is the private atmosphere at Huck's Cafe where different dining rooms allocated for you to have a great time with your friends compared to the usual noisy restaurants. Can't wait to head back to Huck's Cafe soon :D

Huck's Cafe is located at:
22, Jalan Abdullah, Off Jalan Bangsar,
59000 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Open: Tues - Sun (7pm - 11pm)
Contact: 03 2282 2126
Facebook page: Huck's Cafe

Menu can be viewed at their FB page to order. It can get confusing at first, but just take ur time to slowly go through the menu and erm...drool :P
