Eat, Drink & Be Merry @ Jaya One - Part One

Having Jaya One near to where I reside, I must say that I have only managed to patronize a handful of the establishments there. When I received an invite to cover 6 in one night, I decided to check them out. Furthermore, this meant a gathering with other floggers and when floggers get together, we always have a great time!

Location of gathering : Jaya One, No. 72-A, Jalan Universiti, 46200 Petaling Jaya


1st stop
Brisik Restaurant
10-1 Palm Square
11.00am – 10.30pm daily
Tel : 03-7958 6681
(Note : No corkage charge)
Signature dishes : Satay Serai, Tahu Telur, Ayam Penyet, Sundanese Flying Fish

The colourful and cosy restaurant, serving Sundanese & Siamese cuisine

Brisik Combo Platter
Combo Brisik (RM18 for 2 pax) which I enjoyed the Satay Serai the most.
Satay Serai - Chicken lemongrass skewer
Satagor - Mashed bean curd and potato mix with minced chicken and mix vegetables
Emping Melinjo - Indonesian sweet chips
Gado-gado - Vegetables served with peanut sauce

*Packs up the camera in the bag and off we go to the next venue! Weeeeee.....*

Bar Madrid

Opening Hours:
Mon – Thurs: 12pm – 12am
Fri: 12pm – 2am
Sat: 4pm – 12.30am
Tel : 012-209 2812
Signature dishes : Baby back pork ribs, pork sandwich & tapas

Bar Madrid - Humour
"Beer is proof God loves us and wants us to be happy" - Bar Madrid humour. Just the place to unwind to Spanish melodies & Sangria and enjoy Spanish cuisine. Ahhh...reminds me of my 2 weeks in Spain.

Iberico Confitado
Iberico Confitado (RM17.90) - Slow cooked Iberico cuts on baguette.
Tender, tasty and with red wine reduction - this is one "sophisticated" tapas. Great stuff!

Spanish Omelette
Spanish Omelette "Tortilla Espanola" RM9.00 - with ham and cheese, this dish looked and fared average against the Iberico cuts.

Jamon Serrano Croquetas
Jamon Serrano Croquetas (RM15.90) - Mini fried potato balls with Serrano ham filling with cheese milk. A must order for cheese/milk lovers (best eaten warm!). Loved the light crisp exterior with the soft centre :o)

*Packs up camera in bag and walks slowly to 3rd venue - slightly weighed down by food consumed*
3rd Stop
6-1, Palm Square
Phone: 03-7955 9968
Opening Hours:
Mon – Fri: 11.30am – 12.00am
Sat: 3.00pm – 12.00am
Closed on Sundays.
Signature dishes : Grilled butter cod, Salmon with lemon garlic butter, Grilled rack of lamb with yoghurt and mint

Fortunately, our stomachs were able to take a breather as we were in Divino for a wine tasting session and not to eat their western & fusion cuisine. For those who would like to do some wine shopping, there's also the Pristine Wine Shoppe that carries the finest selections of both Old (Europe) and New (outside of Europe) Worlds.
From Top Left to Bottom (clockwise)
Black Cottage Pinot Noir 2008 (New Zealand) - floral, spice and cherry notes, goes with red meat & pasta
Ken Forrester Pinotage 2008 (South Africa) - great for happy casual occasions with a slice of pizza or BBQ
Cape Campbell Lobster Reef Sauvignon Blanc 2009 (New Zealand)
Juno Shiraz 2007 (South Africa) - spicy and pairs well with highly flavoured dishes like roasted venison & baked dishes incorporating beef, beans & lentils.

I have always preferred white over red wine as I'm a novice in this area and enjoy a lighter taste as compared to the usual drier red wines. So, obviously I favoured the Lobster Reef Sauvignon Blanc (which was awarded the Gold Medal in the NZ International Wine Show 2009). With a fruity flavour, it goes well with seafood and salad.

To Be Continued ...
