Subak - Dine with Nature

Fancy dining with nature? Subak is an ideal restaurant you should seriously consider!

When I first read about Subak, I saw that the address was Bukit Lanjan which sounded really far off from the city, hence I didn’t research much into it. However, it wasn’t until recently when I’ve come to realize that it was actually located a stone’s throw away from Damansara Perdana, somewhere along the automobile showrooms!

Who would have thought there was a forest dining so near from my home and workplace???

I was amazed by the green surrounding the moment we reached the entrance of the restaurant. Are you sure we are still in KL city and not Bali? LOL.

The restaurant took on the concept of Balinese fusion. But nope, it is a halal restaurant and there isn’t any pork rib or bebek here.

The menu offers a wide range of selection ie. pastas, burgers, Asian food, steaks and grilled seafood etc. You may access the full list of online menu here:

The raw design and the wooden structures reminds me very much of the many restaurants I have visited in Bali. Instantly feel like I was on a vacation.

I was told that the restaurant is a real romantic pick for dinner. Imagine yourself dining in a dim lit wooden attap house on a breezy evening listening to the singing of crickets. The only concern you should have is the mosquitoes. For that, the restaurant has got some coils standby in place.

Subak has got some pretty good mocktail. We had Amore and Blue Eye of the Float – RM13 each.

We did not order any starter but 3 main course instead.  LOL.

Seafood Aglio Olio – RM32

Served with an adequate amount of mussels, prawns and squids. It was good, but could have been better with more garlic.

Norwegian Salmon Steak – RM47

Looks burnt on the outside but the inside of the fish is fine. I always thought cooked salmon could be a bit dry but the problem is solved when eaten with cream sauce.

Black cod fish – RM65

What can I say? Cod fish could hardly go wrong! Smooth and sweet. That bunga kantan sauce (whatever it is) was rather odd though.

Noticed that all 3 dishes were seafood XD

Fish pond with kois ^^

Pardon me for my bizarre dressing. It was Christmas eve so I thought I could pretend to be a carol girl.

Matching outfit with the car cushion! LOL.

Subak serves the same menu for lunch and dinner. If you want good lighting for photos, go in the afternoon. Otherwise for lovebirds, I would recommend you to visit after sunset for a more romantic ambience.

Belated Christmas Update

Pavilion was crowded on Christmas day! 

Still, couldn't resist the Christmas atmosphere there. It made the jam rather worthwhile :x

Home-cooked Christmas dinner at Chucky's place. No expensive restaujrant set-meal, no late night drinking. We have come to that age when all we want is just a peaceful night with close friends/family *blessed*

Best salad ever! Recipe: strawberry, blueberries, pomelo, rocket and some olive oil. Can't believe something simple as that could taste as good! ^^

The main course was bacon-wrapped stuffed chicken with mushroom. Never a fan of chicken breast but this was exceptionally yummy!

He even made Rocky Road for dessert!

Chuck's Hammy. Name is Potato. LOL.

Part of Christmas shopping. Still owing those debt on my credit card. FML.

Tapas and wine at Estilo, Publika.

Met up with B&B (bitches and beasts from my A-Level's, what a name!) that weekend too. 

Pampered myself with macarons from Nathalie's Gourmet. One of the best in town I would say. 

Hope you had a joyful Christmas :)
