We never brought the Bro out for his birthday dinner coz he was away for work. So when we finally had him at home over the weekend, we took him to a fancy new place in Taman Perindustrian Pusat Bandar Puchong called 6 Senses Gastrobar. The place is tucked within an industrial area, but there are several bars, cafes and restaurants around that have been making the waves, turning the spot into a cool hangout.
The interior is classy and elegant, done in a mostly black and gold colour scheme with leather accents and warm, ambient lighting. Despite its almost fine-dining vibe, we were pleasantly surprised at their reasonable prices.
A beautifully decorated corner with a classy leather couch and gramophone. Great for photo opps!
The menu serves mainly Western cuisine, from thin crust pizzas to pasta and steaks – but there are also dishes like cheese baked rice, as well as a selection of wines.
Refreshing carrot juice; but if you don’t want to order drinks there is complimentary lemon water.
For our mains, Pops went with the Carbonara. It was excellent – on par with the one I like from Enorme.
The dish was creamy but not cloying, with a rich sauce coating each strand of perfectly al-dente pasta, topped with a beautiful runny egg yolk for extra smoothness, and crispy fried bacon. Also a shaving of cheese for extra aroma.
Moo’ had half a spring chicken, served with deep fried sweet potato, vegetables and a side of gravy. The chicken was tender, moist and juicy enough on its own, even without the accompanying gravy, and packed with flavour.
The birthday boy had the most expensive item – grilled pork chop – served with vegetables and a cream sauce. The chop was huge and thick, but cooked thoroughly, with a nice, smokey flavour on the outside.
Everything else was good at this point, but my order of Curry Tonkatsu Rice turned out to be disappointing. The curry was tepid, not warm and hearty, and even by the mild standards of Japanese curry, the taste was weak and watery. The tonkatsu was dry; none of the moist juiciness you get from places like Tonkatsu by Ma Maison.
Well, 3 out of 4 is not too bad, and for the setting vs price, this is a nice place to take the significant other on a romantic dinner date. Sunday is family day, so if you’re in a family of four, one person gets their main dish for free.
