Not many people is eating out nowadays as it is noticeable in some F&B outlet. We were dining out as mum had some important errand to do, so no cooking for that day. The historical Sun Yat Sun reminds me of the new place that we had yet to patronize and from there we make up our mind to dine there. Surprisingly, the car park was almost emptied. We asked the parking attendance where is the dining place and he shown us the Spring Chamber.
Well, nothing much of a change despite the building once used as a tuition centre in the eighties, the GE Institution if am not wrong held night classes for student who needed assistance to pursue subjects that they are weak at before its tuition centre were slowly out of business with some notably good ones like the KK Tan tuition centre behind the formerly Rex theater. The building had since been rented for other business trade until a year ago the Spring Chamber took up for F&B. Heard that there is another Café opening coming Tuesday just right in front of the Court yard. Those who need a sip of the Mocha cafe may patronize this new outlet next week.
On one look, the décor of the internal remains as of the original built, with only some basic curtain hung on the windows and the centre of the Spring Chamber. We were seated and shown the menus, then hubby asked for the restroom. One need to walk to the court yard, then turn right to proceed through a small alley right to the end, I felt it is a little secluded at the far end and a distance from the dining hall. You’ll notice upon entering the toilet a flat wide flower pots altered to used as a wash basin, whereas the vase flower pots modified to used as a urinary bowl, never thought the idea can be fully utilized as described by hubby.
Price on the menu is on the high side as we thought the food must be tasted good. I ordered the curried pumpkin soup with potato ravioli. The pumpkin taste a little different, I think they added too much cream.
While my hubby ordered the fresh wild mushroom soup with garlic bread.
As for the main meal, I ordered the grill cod fish with their special sauce the lemon grass with tumeric cream sauce.
And my hubby ordered the grill boneless chicken with garlic brown sauce. The boneless chicken not too bad except hubby found the sauce a little weird. Since the waiter asked whether the food is alright, hubby requested black pepper sauce half way through the meal. Black pepper sauce is the ultimate sauce for grill chicken in the end. The damage for the night was RM94.50 was not worth the price we paid for as we can get a better taste in 32 Mansion.
Again, we didn’t order any special drinks except for the plain warm water on the house. They need to do something now before everyone who patronizes this Spring Chamber will give bad comments.
