When we walked past All Stars Cafe on day looking for a place to eat, we noticed a little Standee outside the restaurant. This "pub" actually serves lunch !! So we walked in and sat down. I had no idea before that day that All Stars serves lunch, let alone be open during lunch time. Did you know ?
We did get our orders into the kitchen, and we did not have to wait very long before our food came out. I asked for a Lamb Stew dish, with rice, while Sayang ordered her Nasi Lemak. The food turned out to be quite tasty, which otherwise would have totally ruined our lunch.
Their lamb stew dish came with a bowl of butter rice, lamb stew and a generous helping of steamed salads. The taste of the lamb stew was abit salty, but I believe everyone makes it that way. I have no idea why. The lamb was not overcooked, and found the meat to be rather tender. It almost tasted like the Irish Lamb stew, which can be found at Secret Recipe.
Sayang's Nasi Lemak came with a piece of Rendang Chicken, the usual Fragrant Rice, accompanied with crunchy ikan bilis, fried peanuts, acar, one whole hard boiled egg, and a slice of cucumber and tomato. The serving was quite big gotta say. By tasting their Nasi Lemak, you can somehow tell whether the quality is good or not. Whether or not their Fragrant Rice stick to each other ( I was told once, that if the Nasi is done correctly, it should be fragrant, fully cook (soft) and should not stick to one another. Their's crumbles when you put a spoon into the rice. Their sambal was cold, so there's a hint that perhaps they actually get their sambal supplied from somewhere. The rendang chicken tasted quite good too. But then, their acar came cold, fresh from the fridge.... thats not good...
If not because of the slow service , and badly trained front line staff, I'd actually given this restaurant a 7.2 out of 10. Instead I am giving them a 5.6/10 rating for the entire place. I hope they keep improving their service as well as their food. Will definitely return to try some of their other offerings on the menu.
