A Restaurant Review — Does This Make Me a Food Critic?

Blog Post #129

Bruce and I went out for bite to eat tonight— it was 33 degrees (Celsius) outside and not much cooler inside, neither of us wanted to turn on the stove, so… yay…dinner out!

There is a Pan-Asian restaurant that is within walking distance of our place, we decided to leave the car in the garage and stroll down the street to Manis Restaurant.  Let me tell you about our experience — I’ll put on my Food Critic Hat! (I’ve also posted this same review on Trip Advisor)

We’ve been to Manis’ several times and haven’t been disappointed yet!

Each time I eat at this place, I try a different dish. The food is always delicious, cooked to perfection and the presentation is always beautiful. This time I had the Nasi Goreng – an Indonesian fried rice dish with egg, tomato, and Chinese greens. I had it with chicken, but it is also available with beef or prawns. This dish was a pleasure to eat — the fried rice was scrumptious and the egg added a level of flavour that was very pleasing. Pineapple chunks gave a refreshing sweetness to the dish.

My husband had the Thai Mango Fish, which was so delicious that I have decided that it will be the dish I try at my next visit. The portion of fish was just right and it was so flavourful, with just the right amount of heat. The mango slices lent a tropical edge that balanced the spiciness. And who can resist coconut rice?

Manis is a cozy restaurant with seating capacity for 44. The staff is exceptionally friendly. Every time I have been there, I have been greeted with a welcoming smile. The service is impeccable, friendly, attentive but not overbearing.
