Anyway, this is our second time at Jibbys. Why, you ask? Because we were turned off by our first visit there. No it wasn't the service nor was it the taste of our food. But rather because the menu had nothing suitable for the taste buds of Mat Melayu Aiden. I mean seriously, why wouldn't a fusion restaurant in Malaysia not have at least fried rice on the menu??!! Due to that, we had to endure his crankiness throughout the whole meal. Le sigh.
This time around we were forgiving enough to give it a second chance. Well that, and because my sister in laws invited us for lunch to celebrate my in-laws' anniversary. *chuckles* Fortunately though, Aiden's palate has expanded slightly to include cheese burgers. So that was the savior for the day; Jibby's The Ultimate Burger (RM35, add RM5 to add a sunny side up). Quoting the menu, juicy 100% Aussie beef patties with melted cheddar cheese topped with crispy onion, beef bacon, tomato & onion jam. One word: Yum!!!
|Check out the many expressions of Aiden and his burger. He actually finished the whole thing!|
|We had to cut it in two so it could fit in his small hands. Served with fat chips.|
As for me and Hubby, we were dead tired from a morning well spent cycling at Taman Botanic Shah Alam (formerly known as Bukit Cerakah)... separate post on that later! After burning all those calories *chewah*, we were craving for some good ol' carbs, so instead of looking at the Western mains we decided to choose from the Asian selection. Hubby had the Beef Ribs Glaze with Thai Chilli BBQ Sauce (RM38) while I had Pan Fried Atlantic Salmon Steak (RM35). Both served with rice.
|Hubby's beef ribs. The beef was so tender, it didn't even need a knife. It practically melted as you chewed! Definitely the highlight of the entire dining experience.|
|My pan fried salmon. The spicy tamarind sauce and stir fried french beans went really well with the fish.|
|Ian and his Daddy, writing on the anniversary card.|
|Hogging my drink.|
|This cutie pie was all over the place that afternoon! Dah nama pusar dua kan!|
|A very creative (and healthy!) anniversary 'cake', made by my sister in law.|
We requested for the staff to bring the said 'cake' to the table as a surprise for my in-laws. They promptly brought it over, unfortunately the entire restaurant crew started serenading my in-laws with a rendition of "Happy Birthday"! I felt so sorry that we had to cut them off midway. They looked all confused, as we hurriedly explained that it was an anniversary lunch. Oh well, at least it's the thought that counts.
|Here was what my father in-law had. Prawns, Salmon, Calamari, Clams and Butter Fish Hotspot, served with toasted Turkish bread (RM38). It was so-so.|
Anyway, service was good, the staff were attentive - the guy who served us actually repeated our orders a couple of times so that was well appreciated. Food arrived fairly quickly too. Despite the all glass facade with the sun hitting hard outside, it was cool and comfortable inside the restaurant. I guess we've somewhat changed our minds about the place. We will definitely return, for the beef ribs!
