Samira by Asian Terrace @ KLPAC, Sentul – A pleasant surprise

Okay, did any of you guys know of the existence of this restaurant? I have been to KLPAC about 5 times and never did I see/hear of Samira. Apparently, they have been around since 2012, lol and I am 5 years late, but hey – better late than never, right?

First thing I noticed was the surrounding. Samira is located at the edge of a mini lake of sort. Breathtaking, really.

If you fancy yourself some time off from the city, surrounded by nature, then you should give Samira a go. Β It certainly was a breath of fresh air for me, loved it. Β At the point when I visited this eatery, it just finished raining, so I had the breeze literally heading my way with droplets of water occasionally hitting me – felt real good. Totally naturalistic.Β

They offer a variety of Asian dishes, there is the Indian style Prawn Crabmeat cake that resembles vada/vadai, the pineapple fried rice which is a popular Thai dish, Kankung belacan – Chinese style and many more dishes to tickle your taste buds.Β 

Prawn Crabmeat Cake, 26 ringgit

For starters, I decided to give this vada/vadai like prawn crabmeat cake a try. I have tried this dish several times before, elsewhere and while it tasted good, it usually is either overwhelmingly oily and/or somehow lost its crunchiness along the way. When the dish arrived here though, as soon as I cut into it to take my first mouth, you can literally feel the crunchiness. Β YAY! IT tasted really good, was not overwhelmingly oily and was properly spiced. There was plenty of prawn and crabmeat filling that came with this ‘cake’ , they did not stinge on it. There is nothing I would change about this dish except for the fact that I wished there were plenty more ‘cakes’ than 5 that came with this dish. It was not enough – I needed more, lol.Β 

Chicken Spicy Sauce, 28 ringgit

If you like you chicken not too spicy, a little sweet with some gravy – the do give this a try. Β I fancied myself some chicken that did not fall into the ‘curry’ category because that would mean too much gravy, so instead – I wanted something dryer and this was what that was suggested. It was exactly what I needed. The chicken was deboned and cook to perfection, tender and easy to cut into. The gravy was thick, fragrant, spicy with a tinge of sweetness. I loved it.

Pineapple Fried Rice, 24 ringgit

I loved this fried rice. Literally all the ingredients that made up this dish – I like. There was about 3 large prawns, cashewnuts, raisins, corns, carrots, peas and egg. Β There was crunchiness, sweetness and spiciness with a burst of flavors as soon as you take a spoonful of it. Loved it. Definitely the kind of fried rice i would order again.

Would I head here again?

Yes, but not anytime soon. First of all, it is located quite a distance away from where I am located. Secondly, as an attempt to eat healthier, Β I usually eat rice and seafood once a week and when I do – I like variety. In terms of the food offered at Samira, it is perhaps something I can find nearby, maybe not at the similar standard served at Samira but I can nevertheless find something nearer. I would head to Samira though, when I want a change in ambiance/environment – the naturalistic feel/view it offers. It certainly will distress me.
