yasmine restaurant at the pier, SHV

Postby bolueeleh » Sun Sep 25, 2016 12:18 am

went to the yasmine at the pier this evening, ordered the falafel, best presentation i have seen in snooky so far, the falafel is crispy on the outside but soft and fluffy on the inside, but it needs more herbs and spices, kind of bland taste wise.

the falafel wetted my appetite so decided to order more, tried ordering pork ribs - NA, tried ordering chicken kebab - NA, tried ordering lamb kebab - NA, tried ordering fired calamari - NA

Gave up, feeling frustrated, paid and left

Argh I hate that! We stopped going to Snooky's because after a few times of slower and slower service, the one night they had no beef. We've never been back for a meal.

Kind of surprised by that, but yeah the place is a bit off right now wrt the food/menu. although the Turk crew opened it a few months back, they've never really trained the Khmer chefs properly. My best mate, Cordon blue taught, who trained some of the Olive Olive cooks, is currently teaching another young Turk cook to take over the kitchen and become the main chef, and is also developing their new evening menu which should be out this week. Also if you order a latte/cap/etc., make sure the female cashier doesn't make it!

New night menus are out, prices are a bit higher than the day menu for similar dishes but the dishes are a bit more elaborate
i was told. Steaks are a bit expensive/small compared to MM and elsewhere but the place is more geared towards the tourists. Lamb will be available tomorrow it seems. can't comment on anything on the menu except the falafel which has improved and the turkish breakfast :thumb: as my friend is cooking a special dish tonite since the lamb is still marinating.

Trying out the steak pita kebab, not too shabby. Home made bread, nicely marinated meat, lightly grilled veggies, ample french fries! Ate a quarter already.

Last night had a spinach feta stuffed chicken breast wrapped in cheese and baked with caramelised onions. Was a bit salty, i think they were suppose to put riccotta cheese but unavailable at the time. Salad was great, had a honey basalmic type reduction, and the veggies were lightly steamed.

Lamb and pork ribs are available too.

Will try tomorrow. Easy enough to drop by and check it out, I think there's two different large menus, morning/day is a typical book menu and the other for dinner is like a large cardboard menu. Dunno why they decided to do that honestly?!
