[FOOD REVIEW] Ombak Kitchen | Best Seafood Restaurant in Bangsar

Hi everyone! I recently had dinner at Ombak Kitchen with some friends for some fresh seafood dinner, and I can't wait to share with your our experience while we were there. Before i share about the delicious food we had, let me share with you why we chose Ombak Kitchen as a gathering location. Ombak Kitchen  has claimed to be the best seafood restaurant in Bangsar, offering halal seafood that is affordable and guranteed to be fresh from the shores. Operating since 2018, they are well known with their signature sauces, chief among them being the glorious Ombak Crazy Cajun Sauce that features a spicy tangy taste.


The concept of Ombak Kitchen was inspired by Louisiana's seafood boil concept, with the purpose to present seafood that is fresh and juicy. It's unique that the dishes that you order from the menu will be poured onto a covered table top, where you can freely dig in and indulge in their fresh seafood. Some of their premium dishes would include the Alaskan King Crab, the Canadian Red Lobster, XL Live Premium USA Oyster, and the XL Live Mud Crab. 

Ombak Kitchen Menu

When dining at Ombak Kitchen, you will be given a bib that says '#pakaitanganjer' which also means that you can just use your hands to eat and dig in. Alternatively, if you're not used to eating with your hands, utensils are also provided. But really, I think I would have to admit that getting your hands dirty would be the best way to enjoy seafood, especially when youre trying to enjoy the fresh prawns and crabs. It's also a popular dining location as the best restaurants for birthday celebrations in Bangsar as they also offer Birthday packages. Mostly, people enjoy celebrating their birthdays here for their 'Ombak Kitchen Signature Art of Dessert' featuring local and international fruits presented in an artistic way. 

Appetizer

Cheese Fresh Baked Oysters

While i was there, we decided to try the Cheese Fresh Baked Oysters as an appetizer. We had no regrets ordering this as it tasted very well seasoned. Under the Oyster, they prepared a special sauced with purple cabbage that complimented the baked oyster topped with baked cheese which surprisingly really builds up an appetite. Despite the sauce and cheesy combination, surprisingly it wasn't at all salty and the oyster still tasted very fresh despite it being baked. Rest assured, you know that your seafood is in good hands when youre at Ombak Kitchen. 

Signature Seafood Spread

Signature Ombak Crazy Cajun Sauce

Cheesy Zesty Lemon Sauce

For the seafood spread, we ordered a combination of prawns, crawfish, squid, clams and mussels in 2 different sauces, namely, the Signature Ombak Crazy Cajun Sauce and the Cheesy Zesty Lemon. Starting off with my thoughts on the Signature Ombak Crazy Cajun Sauce, I would have to say that it's definitely my favorite flavor cause it has just the right amount of spice. It blends in with the seafood really well, without overpowering the fresh juicy taste of the seafood. So, if youre a spicy food lover, be sure to try the Signature Ombak Crazy Cajun Sauce.


For non-spicy lovers, you would love the Cheesy Zesty Lemon sauce. The sauce offers flavors that is creamy but with a hint of cheese and lemon which makes it a great combination to enjoy fresh boiled seafood. Actually, since the flavors contrasts the spicy flavor, the combination of both these flavors actually tasted pretty good. Would I reorder these flavors? I would say its a yes! The Cheesy Zesty had some spices to add some 'zing' into the flavor, so you may need to request it to be less spicy if you have kids with you at the restaurant. 

Other Menu Options



Other than what we ordered, some of their signature dishes that you can also consider would be the Premium Alaskan Giant King Crab, the Live XL Mud Crab, and their Canadian Red Lobsters! I see people ordering their Lobster Thermidor with cheese sauce right next to our table, and that got me drooling. The other sauces that they offer other than the Signature Ombak Crazy Cajun Sauce and the Cheesy Zesty Lemon, you may also consider the Buttermilk Curry, Creamy Tom Yam, Peranakan Seri Nyonya, and Apple Cilantro Sauce.

Verdict


To conclude on my review on Ombak Kitchen, I would highlight that if youre looking for fresh seafood that is presented in a unique twist, Ombak Kitchen is definitely the place to be. From my visit, the seafood presented tasted fresh and was well done by the chef. The menu offers a wide spread of combinations to choose from with a starting combo price of RM169.90. It may be a little on the high side, but I can assure you that the price youre paying for is actually for fresh quality seafood. All in all, I would have to say that this restaurant is a nice place to gather with friends or to celebrate special occasions that could be a conversation starter when you dine in. So, what are you waiting for? Go plan your week ahead and make your reservations today!

My Nivea Vacation Kit | Body Spray, Foam Cleanser and Lotion


Hi guys! Im back with another blog post today sharing with you my must-have items that you need to bring for any trip you take. Nivea being one of my favourite go-to products, here are some of my picks on their latest launched products in which i will also share with you a review on what i think of it. Featuring in todays post, i will share with you 4 products which i think are useful for everyday use and for vacation trips, which would be, the Nivea Black & White Invisible Anti-perspirant, the Nicea Extra White C & E Vitamin Lotion and the Nivea Rosy White Hokkaido Rose. 

Nivea Black & White Invisible Range


The Nivea Black & White series has been one of my husbands fav ever since they launched and now they have came up with an upgraded formula featuring two variants, for men, the Black & White Invisible Ultimate Impact Long Lasting Protection and the for Women, Black & White Silky Smooth After Shaving. Both guranteeing 48 hours of protection, making it great for long lasting freshness! 


The Black & White Invisible Ultimate Impact Long Lasting Protection is specifically designed for men (which i secretly use it too when im in a rush to smell fresh), is formulated to be a 5 in 1 which offers 48 hours of protection from Odour, Sweat, Stains, Residue and Irritation! The perks of this would be that it doesnt leave your shirt with any stains, and honestly the new formulation smells nicer if you ask me. 


The Black & White Silky Smooth After Shaving on the other hand is designed for women, and i love the fact that it has a multi-dual purpose. Other than being an anti-perspirant, its also a great after shaving spray too. With 0% alcohol, its gentle enough to be applied after shaving, leaving us ladies with less worries when it comes to after shaving concerns. It has been dermatologicallt proven to be safe on skin and best of all, it doesnt irritate the under arm area. Just what i need for a fresh hairless vacation. To use this, i usually spray around the underarm, then allow it to dry. 

Nivea Rosy White Hokkaido Rose Whip Foam Cleanser


For my cleansing needs on a vacation, i would highly recommend you to grab this on the go! Being a mother now, i tend to cut down on my skincare products when i travel, and one of the biggest concerns i have while travelling would be getting dry skin at the end of the day from being a tourist. Impressively, the rosy white Hokkaido Rose Whip Foam Cleanser does not only cleanse, but it also restores skin radiance with 36x anti-oxidants. 



It deeply cleanses makeup residue, pollutants, and dirt effortlessly without harming the skin barrier. Its suitable for all skin types, but honestly i love it because it doesnt dry out my skin. Despite forgetting to bring my toner and moisturizer during this vacation, surprisingly this cleanser did a great job in keeping my skin cleansed and hydrated. I usually apply a pearl size amount of foam on my palm then lather it well before cleansing my face. Love how gentle the lather is, and its great that it doesnt leave my skin feeling dry and tight after cleansing. Major Love!  

Nivea Extra White C & E Vitamin Lotion


Im not usually a fan of lotion due to the sticky residue that it usually leaves, but this Nivea Extra White C & E Vitamin Lotion will change your perception on what you think about lotion. To be fair, this is beyond your ordinary lotion as its the first vitamin lotion that offers 10-in-1 benefits for the skin. 10 benefits?! Yes, even i found it too good to be true! We all know lotion serves a purpose to hydrate, but this lotion does not only hydrates as it also repairs and moisten the skin with 50x vitamin C and Vitamin E. 


A little review-sharing on this,  i was immediately in love when i applied this on my skin. Its surprisingly lightweight and is easily absorbed by the skin leaving no sticky residue no matter how thick you apply this in your skin. In case youre wondering on what are tha 10 benefitd this offers, it whitens, repairs, nourish, hydrates, smoothens, evens out skin tone, provides elasticity, enchance radiance of skin, an anti-oxidant and provides you with UV protection. With that much benefits, im sold! Been using this throughout my vacation and the after vacay skin still feels amazing! You have to try it to believe it! 

Verdict

To conclude my post on Nivea Products that i’ve shared, i would have to say that these are really impressive products as skincare and body care needs. Not being bias at all, but really, Nivea did a great job in innovating their products to be beyond basic needs. I would say that if you need some TLC in your life, its a great start by purchasing these products from Guardian Malaysia pronto! Do check it out and trust me, every penny spent on these are worth it! Well, thats all from me. Thank you for dropping by to read my review and please leave me a comment if you may have any other questions in the comment below.

Immunity Kit 2020 by Himalaya Malaysia [Herbal Formulated Supplements]


As the saying goes, prevention is always better than cure. Living in 2020, i think the world has taken healthcare seriously, especially when theres a infectious deadly virus spreading around the world, also known to be the Covid-19. So, the question now is, how can we prevent from being one of the high-risk category of individuals from catching the virus? Simple, you can start by boosting your immunity with Himalaya. Thus, in todays post, i’ll be sharing with you the must-haves that you can consider taking to boost your immunity.

Himalaya Malaysia has been established since 1930 and has gained trust by many of their customers (including myself) to trust their products which are popular to be an alternative to modern medicine. Himalaya has been a preferred choice to many for being a natural option of health supplements that are 100% made out of herbal ingredients. Coming from a family background with doctors in the family, I’ve leaned towards Himalaya products because they are natural, which also means there are less side effects in comparison to modern medicine. Now, lets get into details on my immunity booster combo! 

Amalaki (RM51.70)




Starting off with the Amalaki, this is actually your vitamin C booster. With Indian Gooseberry as the key ingredient, this will surely boost your immunity system while giving you 10X more Vitamin C than a normal orange would. Other than giving your body a boost in your immunity, its also good for those who are suffering with diabetes, diminished immunity, infections and convalescence. I personally take 1 capsule each time, twice daily and noticed that i havent gotten sick since. Being a mother now, i really need to be at my best to ensure that i have the energy and health to care for my baby.

Septilin Tabs + Syrup (RM48.40 + RM27.30)



Septilin in general is effective for those who are having sore throat, cough and flu. So, when youre feeling like youre having a sore throat, cough or flu, this is what you'll need. The Tabs come in table form which helps to build body's defence mechanism. It will acute chronic and recurrent infections which makes it a great product to have at home. The syrup on the other hand has the same purpose as the tabs. Honestly, the ingredients for both of these are the same, so if youre not a fan of syrup, the tabs is an easier option that minuses out the after taste that syrup would usually leave in your mouth. Or, for the little ones, tabs may be a little hard to swallow, so the syrup is a great alternative. 

Koflet Lozenges 10's (RM10.50)


Koflet Lozenges is specially formulated for those suffering from dry cough. The key ingredients in this would be long pepper, ginger, black pepper and clove, which basically will give a spicy herbal minty flavour to help treat dry cough. I actually brought this around with me, and its pleasingly nice around the throat when it feels a little chesty. You can enjoy this when your throat is feeling a little dry, but if youre suffering from heavy cough, then it would be advisable to take this 3 to 4 times daily to relief throat irritations and cough. Alternatively, if youre looking for a mouth cleanser, this keeps your mouth and breath fresh as well. 

Cold Relief Balm (RM10)



And last but not least would be the Cold Relief Balm. I feel that this is my favourite product among the rest of my immunity kit options. Containing only herbal ingredients, Mentha arvensis, cinnamomum, and eucalyptus, this is used to relief cold and blocked nose (which i suffer on a weekly basis, especially at night). With this balm, the purpose of this is to clear congested and blocked nasal passages which i feel that it works really well for me. All i need to do is apply this on my nose and throat, and a few moments later, my blocked nose is cleared! Alternatively, this can also be used to relieve headaches associated with flu, cold and sinusitis. 

Verdict


All products comes with an expiry date

As a verdict, i would definitely suggest you to get these items to be ready at home. The good thing about Himalaya Malaysia products would be that they are 100% herbal formulated, which also means this has minimal side effects in the long run in comparison to modern medicine. Its a great immunity pack to have and its also the best seller products during the pandemic of Covid-19. Personally i find their products are affordable if youre looking for traditional herbal medication as a healthier option for your health. Since we're all trying to stay safe by staying indoors, the products mentioned in this post are available online through www.shophimalaya.my or in Himalaya Boutique's, and Physical Pharmacies near you.
