Ole Ole Bali, Solaris Mount Kiara, Mount Kiara

I guess Ole Ole Bali doesn't need much introduction, pretty famous for their great Balinese food and affordable considering the quality and environment of it. Ole Ole Bali remains as one of my top favourite visited restaurants, mostly for it's simple fresh dishes yet feels somewhat similiar to our Malaysian palate with spices and sambal incorporated into. I frequented (loved) the outlet at Solaris Mount Kiara the most for it's quiet and cozy environment, and the outdoor side of it is especially romantic! =)

Candles on table are always welcomed.

Rustic and cozy interior decoration.

My must have drink for every visit, the Lemongrass Mojito(RM11). A lil pricy for a glass of drink, but it's really worth it for that refreshing, zitty and sourish concoction! It's like crossing over ice cold soda with very strong Ice Limao and gulping it down in Bali!

For starters, we ordered the Soto Ayam(RM11) to be shared. Comes with a slice of toasted garlic bread. I would rate the soto as average, though it has quite generous amount of chicken and vege cubes thrown in. I had better ones. I liked the pieces of rice cakes though, tastes like soup soaked ketupats!

Seafood Platter(RM32). The girlfriend's favorite, comes with prawns, squids and dory fishes with side dishes of thick cut fries, salad, brown sauce and a slice of watermelon. We had this a few time, and the strength of the barbecued platter is the freshness. Test the bouncy prawn to believe. The brown sauce was the bomb too which pretty complements everything from the seafood to the fries.

Nasi Kambing Bumbu(RM26). Pretty big portion, and 2 small eaters or women could share or will be struggling to finish everything. The really fragnant rice comes with a side of lamb, sauted vege, crackers, tempe and the very own Balinese version of sambal which is more thinly sourish and spicier. The lamb was pretty good, but I felt the sauce was a bit over powered with spices.

Like always, I couldn't stand the temptation to have some real burger patty. I had the Ole Ole Burger (RM21), which I then added Cheese(RM2) on it. There are other options that can be add like mushrooms and eggs for RM2. The beef patty, which is cooked medium rare is really juicy, really good barbecue chef I would say. The burger bun is one of the best I've ever had, being fluffy and has this sprinkle of flour(I guess?) on top.

Overall, we had a very satisfying meal complemented with good environments and company. To be noted: Ole Ole Bali has a few branch, located in Sunway Pyramid, Puchong and Subang Empire Mall (website link tells exact address). However, I would say Mount Kiara's branch wins hands down just because of the environment itself, and not to forget, some quiet and really cozy dining experience obtained. Their other specialities like Nasi Campur, Ole Ole Trio, Sate Lilit and barbecued items are also very much recommended.

Our total bill for the 4 of us came around RM131.45 . I wouldn't say it's cheap, but fair enough for a weekly splurge on exchange for some relaxing experience.
