The Cave Couple Cafe & Restaurant @ SS2

This restaurant is closed

cave1
[entrance of the cafe]
The Cave Couple Cafe & Restaurant is located in SS2. Steven & I wanted to visit this cafe for quite some time & it so happened we decided to have dinner somewhere in SS2, and we went there for dinner.
cave2

The restaurant’s owner was fascinated by the Anatolian Houses, a cave hotel during his stay in Cappadocia, when he returned, he opened The Cave Couple Cafe & Restaurant. As you first stepped into the restaurant, you will have a kinda feeling like you have entered to a different world. The interior design of the restaurant looks unique with the man-made rocks and dim lights.
cave3cave4
There is a sofa for diner to sit while waiting for a cave room & there are also tables for you to have drinks.
cave5
[straircase to the cave room]
cave6cave7
[our cave room]
Each cave is attached with a satin curtain in order for diners to have private dining. Besides that, there is a service bell attached for diners to call the waiters for orders and bills.

The Cave Couple Cafe & Restaurant offers a wide range of Chinese, Western & Japanese cuisine, either ala carte or set meals (Western Dinner Set Menu & Japanese Bento Set Menu, both @ RM 46++ per set). I had a Western Dinner Set.

[Spicy Seafood Soup, Spicy Seafood Spaghetti & Coffee]

Western Dinner Set Menu:

(A Choice of Salad or Soup)
Appertizers
  • The Cave House Salad
  • Sushi Ceasar's Salad
  • Trip of Mushroom Soup
  • Spicy Seafood Soup

Entree
  • Spaghetti Chicken Carbonara
  • Spricy Seafood Spaghetti
  • Spinach Salmon Fillet
  • Duo Chicken
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dessert of the day
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Coffee or Tea
The Spicy Seafood Soup tasted a bit weird, it doesn't taste like seafood soup at all, it taste more like spicy japanese miso soup. Their Spicy Seafood Spaghetti was pretty good. It is served with a combination of seafood, mussel, prawn, squid & fish with sambal. For those who likes spicy food, I would recommend this dish. Hot 'n' Spicy Pasta (spaghetti or fettucine). As for Strawberry Cheesecake, we both don't really like it. Sort of 'out of taste'.
cave10
[Percik Spring Chicken @ RM 29.90++]
Steven ordered Percik Spring Chicken, an oven baked marinated spring chicken with traditional sauce. The taste was not good as the chicken is not marinated well enough & the chicken meat was very dry.

Overall, we are not really satisfied with the foods there though. We will give a thumbs up for the ambience but not for the foods we ordered. They have more rooms to improve i would say. In fact, there is a slogan for The Cave Couple Cafe & Restaurant, "everyday is your valentine's day"! Perhaps, you may visit this cafe to experience a romantic dining in a cave room.

The dessert is crispy on the outside but fluffy inside. But it is a bit too sweet for me, perhaps you should try this if you prefer something sweet.

The Spread @ The Garden Hotel @ Residences

the-spread26

The Spread is located on level 6 of The Garden Hotel & Residences. Apparently, my colleague was having a hotel/food review for this hotel, and so, i'm there to be a so called "photographer", to take some pictures of the hotel & the restaurant as well. Of course, the hotel provided us a complimentary one night stay (for our editor) and also a complimentary buffet breakfast & dinner for us. We had the buffets at The Spread, which is an all day dining restaurant, featuring a wide range of Chinese, Malay, Indian, Western & Japanese cuisine.

Since i'm here with a mission, I better quickly go snaps some pictures before I start to fill my stomach. Here are some of the pictures taken during our buffet dinner.
