Been away for quit a while as was overseas due to work so on a wenesday nite i brought 2 of my buddies to dine at my favorite cafe at rangoon...JEWEL....i saw on the FB they have launched a new menu. We were there about 8pm there was a few tables of customers, we were greeted by a sweet young lady lead us to a table. I ask the lady if we can sit upstairs as i remembered my wife and i likes the sofa seats up stairs, the lady say no problem but when we want to move a malay guy just talk to her very openly upstairs is closed. my friends a bit dissapointed as was only 8pm and closed upstairs . But i told my friends was alright the food here should not be a missed.
We sat down looked through the menu, my friends first time here cant decide so they ask me to order we share. So i ordered a mushroom portobello salad, a prawn pasta, a scallop with mash , beef taco and a mushroom soup.
First came the soup than 1 by 1 the dishes out togather, the mushroom soup was as usual hot , tasty , strong mushroom and truffle aroma. The prawn pasta dont need to say was fantastic, at first my friends though that the flakes are alive as was moving when wind blows.than i tried the new dishes, scallops with mash if i remember correctly with capers puree.... was a great match!! then the mushroom salad... the mushrooms was very juicy and well seasoned goes well with the dressing .lastly the beef taco... very tasty, great acidity flavour and i like the kick of spicyness.My buddies loves the food!
Come to service....hmm.... slack.... server not attentive enough. We have to wave to ask for refill our ice water. I am qurious as i saw the guy in spects not really attentive and alert to customers but ...standing inside the bar pressing on hp. So i ask the lady that served us whats that guys position....to our suprise she said is the Manager!! I think the managment got to give a big push on the service as this place serves great excellent food me and my wife and now my buddies knows this place love to dine here regularly.....but if service not there it will be chasing customers away.
