"Remember to Remember"

Planter Jim @ Bangsar Baru

Shop, shop and shop...
We're just not tired of it. Not even a bit. And especially while I'm at Bangsar with my gals, the rage to get items is an essential. And of course, before getting our feet all ached up due to excessive retail therapy, a nice lunch is also another essential routine. Planter Jim serves Thai food that could help us save up for the shopping spree!

Since there were 3 of us, we went for their set lunch A, which caters for 2-3 pax. This is only available from Monday till Friday (12pm - 5 pm). This set meal is priced reasonably at RM49++ for 2 to 3 person and the portion is enough for us although tastewise, there's nothing to shout about ;P Just... a lil' better than OK ;)

The set lunch came with the appetizer, Miang Kam which was made up of wild beatelnut leaves with 7 treasures of ginger, lime chili, peanut, dried shrimps, coconut, shallots with sweet sauce of tamarind and shrimps. As I rarely consume these combos, wrapping up the ingredients with the beatulnut leaves, dipping it into the sweet sauce..... it rocked my palate ;P A nice and healthy serving :)

Next up, the Tom Yam; hot and sour lemongrass soup with prawns, oyster and mushrooms. Though sourish and spicy, it's a rather ordinary preparation. Just mediocre.

The Green Curry Chicken was better than expected. Cooked together with fragrant herbs, it's really aromatic as well. Love having it with the rice served. Curry gravy over rice... yum! *sorry for the blurred pic* ;P

Sotong Chili was kinda spicy. With addition of onions, curry leaves and chili paste, it was a bomb. Very tasty and the squid was chewy too.

Ipoh Bean Sprouts was stir-fried with onions, garlic and chili. I don't think they look tempting as I'm not a beansprout lover, especially the fat-stem ones. Lucky me, my girlfriends helped me sapu them all.

Really had a hot meal that day before going on with our idea to exhaust our wallet ;P
They have other set lunch available too. Do check 'em out if you happen to drop by.
Have to keep this post short as I'm rushing off ;P
Sorry guys. Gotta get ready for my hospital attachment in Seremban.
Till then again! :)

When I see squid I almost go weak ... its one of my favourite seafood and I have not come across a cooking method that I did not like!

Big Boys Oven April 4, 2008 at 8:57 AM  

walio! looks not that appealing compare to what you pay and what you get to eat. hahahah ipoh bean sprout cost RM1.60 a big packet at tesco lol! Maybe this what you get when dining in Bangsar....hmmmm just my 2 cent opinion.

~Christine~Leng April 4, 2008 at 2:16 PM  

It serves Thai :) dunno why got bean sprouts lo.. haha
There's Tom Yam in this set, didn't notice? ;P

Thanks, I'm back already! ^^

What else they serve? I only know Thai... ;P
Yea. I bought some home! :)

Sorta.. Just a lil' fusion.. maybe it's because everyone keep mentioning the Ipoh bean sprout! haha ;P

The Green Curry was good during my last visit. and yea, from the name, you can hardly tell it serve Thai ;P

Got Chicken also.. maybe from the pic, you can't see ^^

Outside your house? you planted? so convenient! then you can make your own. A lot cheaper from this! ;)

thanks for the info! I love Seremban's beef noodle. It's been so long since I last had it. I'm back already, and I didn't find the time to go for a makan trip. Have to wait till I'm there again in 2 weeks time ;P

thanks :) It was tiring..
Come to think of it, It's consider an OK price when you're eating at Bangsar... not to mention about mamak la.. haha..

Goodness~~ You know Bangsar Village rite? haha... ;P

A fan of squid! can definitely do lots with this. So far.. I love having squid cooked with salted egg! yummy! ^^

big boys oven~
yalo yalo.. can hardly find cheap food in that area. Have to scratch my head to limit my budget everytime... But the food here, Ok la. Not bad. ;P except the bean sprout... lol

daphne April 7, 2008 at 10:29 AM

Sugar Bean April 7, 2008 at 3:14 PM  

Hmm... Didn't know about this restaurant at all. Gonna keep my eyes open next time when I'm going to that area. The appetiser looks interesting to us, never have anything like that before.

Miang Kam is worth checking out. Kinda common among the Thais :)
Check 'em out if you guys happen to drop by!

hi Brian. thanks for making a stop here :)
I'm not sure about the pricing of the Miang Kam as it comes in a set with the other dishes. This set is priced at RM49++ for 2-3 persons.
