The sheer mention of The Blue Cow Cafe located at N-1-4, Plaza Damas, Jalan Sri Hartamas 1, Sri Hartamas, Kuala Lumpur would spark anyone mind that this shop only sells beef produce. But when we arrive we found out that it also serves pork dishes and for today we are going to be served “Bacon Inspired Dishes”
The Blue Cow Cafe has been around for quite some time now at the Plaza Damas, the concept offers diners and customers; to be able to either buy the produce back (as it is a butcher shop as well) for self-cooking or had it cooked at the cafe if the food in the menu does not fit your taste buds. What is being promised by the restaurant is top quality produce that is made at the premise and on demand.
For me; I personally find the back verandah of the restaurant rather cozy and quite nice to dine in especially in the evening as you can feel the night breeze and enjoy the beautiful view of the Agong Palace which also overlook the KL city skyline.
The first dish we had for this review is the Bacon Salad (RM15.00); Served with Balsamic dressing; loaded with fresh leafy garden salad, cherry tomatoes, carrot strips and of course topped with crispy Fried Bacon, it was a refreshing start for us.
This is then followed by the Two Eggs Benedict With Bacon (RM30.00). Loves the way they cooked the Egg Benedict which has a plump feel from the melted cheese and the yolk was smooth and flow out upon slicing it. Perfect with the burger bread which we use to licked up the egg yolk with the soft crisp bite of the bacon coupled with the thin layer of the patty.
To try out some bacon on pasta, we had the Spaghetti Carbonara With Bacon (RM25.00). Cooked with creamy carbonara and cheese with pieces of bacon chips; the sauce was thick and gel up each strand of the spaghetti and mushroom which is then topped with a piece of Fried Bacon.
After that, we had the Bacon Cheese Burger (RM28.00). A very thick beef patties; sandwiched with slices of tomatoes, lettuce, cucumber, bacon and topped with a piece of cheese. The patties were very succulent and have a nice bite texture. Married with the right amount of fats for the patties, it does not have a gamy taste. The burger is served with chilled coleslaw and ala-minute french fries on the side.
For me, this next dish is one of my favourite cut for steak dishes. I love Rib Eye steak as they tend to have a nice texture i.e. not too chewy and yet with the right amount of fats that makes a steak perfect. This dish is called the Bacon Wrapped Rib Eye (RM65.00). The bacon is wrapped with the rib eye and grilled to medium cook; which is for me the best cooking style for steak, as the steak still has that slight bloody juicy taste while the texture of the meat still succulent.
The last dish for tonight is the Bangers and Bacon Mash (Farmers or Hunter) – RM30.00. We ordered this dish with the black pepper sauce. We like the texture of the Sausage which has a meaty and salty taste which went well with the special mash potatoes that are mixed with fried bacon chips to give you a crisp texture while you are eating the mash potatoes.
For dessert we had the Australian Ice Coffee (RM15.00); it comes with a shot of espresso with vanilla ice cream and topped with white cream. If you like a lighter version of an Affogato then you would like this more creamy and sweeter version.
By the way, for pet lovers, The Blue Cow cafe is a pet-friendly cafe, you can bring your pets in and they also have a pet menu called the WOOF WOOF Menu; which comes with either pork, beef or lamb for you to choose for your pets. So, now you can dine with your pets at The Blue Cow Cafe.
They also have a counter where you can buy produce for your pets too; mind you; they have a peanut butter just for your pets too if you feel to indulge in.
