Discovering Treasures From Below The Sea @ Williams

No these are not "treasures from below the sea" that Jaded brought back from below Redang! They however were some treasures we found at Williams Taman Mayang that we have been reading about. After checking all the food blogs about Williams, Jaded and I were determined to pay William a visit. Opportunity came when I took leave last Tuesday and Jaded could leave from Cyberjaya.

Our Makan Sister Time is always an adventure. We would make plans on how to meet, where to park the car....blah, blah, blah. I have checked out the blog and was thinking about the stuffed sotong and fried fish......But hey no one told us that there is NO Menu at Williams.

We found a table, sat down and an Indian guy came and asked us...
"Ada apa?"
"Manggo .... ade, orange.....ade, water melon....ade" (actually that was all we heard the first words
.... so we ended up "Ribena dengan lychee, bukan bukan... ribena longan" Jaded ordered
"Ada apa?"
"Chicken chop ade, pasta ade, nasi ade......."

Jaded looked at me and I looked back. In our minds "so how".....Then thank goodness William the saviour, no the Walking Menu came. To say that he is a Walking Menu is also doing him injustice. He could just customize up your dish there and then!!!

I asked, "Ada sotong dengan ikan?"
He said, "Ada... sotong dengan ikan pasta...."
I said, "tak mau pasta..."
He, "Ok Sotong dengan ikan dengan soo hoon"
I, "soo hoon??" Strange I thought!!.....ok lah
Jaded, "Seafood?"
He, "Ada....seafood pasta? Baked seafood penne!!!"
Jaded, "Ok!"

And those were the Treasure from below The Sea......My stuffed sotong and fish sprinkled mint sauce on a bed of soo hoon.......very verry unusual!!! (pix above) The sotong with little bits of cheese and chicken meat.

Jaded's Baked Seafood penne came really hot and the white sauce was good not too creamy .... It had sotong, prawns in it and the portion was large!! Jaded could even have Microwave Leftover Seafood penne that next next day!!!

After the Menopause....

Since Jaded's last posting....we have done nothing to the blog. Da List still rest with 3 entries from Jaded and 3 from me......gosh and we claim we have A LIST!!!.....

Anyway Jaded is too busy with work and with her "diving adventures"......yes into the deep blue. Guess there wont be any posting from her for a while.

I just wanna share about what happened after the Menopause...............The Musical! I went for the musical at Actor's Studio with my girlfriend. I didnt know it was a musical and hey I was truly entertained!
The show finished at about 7.30 and Dee suggested we eat at La Bodega....the easiest. I have always enjoyed the Tapas there. The best I must say.....pricey though. However this time I was surprised that they have a set menu. You pick can 4 different tapas from 6 (i think) choices together with a paella. All these for RM75.00++. I thought it was good a deal, the choices are all their signature tapas.

We selected the sauteed mushroom, the brinjal, garlic chicken and crispy shrimp with tartar sauce. I have always loved their mushroom and the shrimps were something new(to me) and they were delicious. The paella was a big helping, and it came will mussels, prawns, lalah and chicken. We couldnt finish the paella. Though this set is meant for 2 pax, Dee and I thought its good for 3 or 4 person!.

I remembered to snap the photos of the food this time.....but as you know its so dark at La Bodega....and I forgot to switch to night mode........sorry photos did come out good!!!.....
If you can see that there are prawns and mussels in the paella too.
