Best New Eatery SERAI EMPIRE at Empire Shopping Gallery Subang Jaya
SERAI is a name that always buzz in my head. I just love it’s lemony fragrant and taste that can burst inside your mouth which may work wonders. It is definitely an amazing herb that is being infused into our drinks, soups and curries. Yet here at Empire Shopping Gallery I stumbled upon an eatery by the name of Serai Empire. I definitely recognised this restaurant as it is run by Chef Najib who I interviewed few months back for the newspaper. Now he is heading this kitchen. His creations are so well recieved and I was told the restaurant is packed during weekends.
Chef Najib yet another talented chef who had been abroad for more than 10years in perfecting his culinary. That was in Australia. Back here with his luggage of talent and together with the Taff family, Serai Empire was opened at Empire Shopping Gallery at Subang Jaya . With a simple and very laid back interior together with it’s delicious style of dishes, Serai Empire will definitely can easily charm it’s customer. I was there and I loved it. It was totally pampering.
We had Serai Iced Tea, which was unique combination of iced tea flavoured with lemongrass and topped with a generous scoop of lemon sorbet. I was truly chilled and refreshing. Beautiful I would say. The Mint Calamansi Soda was truly pleasureable but my eating buddy found it was overpowering with sourness but I felt it was balanced with sweetness, yet with a touch of Calamansi and Mint. It was nice. The Frosty Tamarind was interesting and rather unusual for me. It was my frst time having them frosty. I think it was a great ideal.
The Milky Bandung was on the sweeter side for my liking and it is rather a common. It was creamy sweet!
