Ecoba @ Taylor's


A year after launching its hugely successful outlet at Damansara Perdana, Ecoba has spread its wings to Taylor's Lakeside Campus. The main reason to head here is the beautiful alfresco setting overlooking soothingly calm waters.

Prices are kept low for the student population's sake, with portions accordingly reduced. This beef stroganoff was satisfying enough for slightly below RM12. The meat wasn't chewy and the sauce wasn't watery, so we can't complain.

Blackened fish fillet with Choron sauce (a Bearnaise variation with tomatoes). Won't win awards, but again, it was flavorsome and well-prepared.

No wine, cocktails or hard liquor is available, but mercifully, a reasonable range of beer is served (while teetotalers can merrily sip iced latte).

  1. Ah, another place to hit the next time I visit Taylor's for my talks and what not. Plus, the students there aren't bad for me eyes either... ;)

  2. Lfb: (hmmm my phone spelling autocorrect tried to change lfb to KGB all of a sudden) anyways I'm not sure campus security would look fondly on cradle-snatching! Though admittedly, I have wondered whether any wild-haired, fresh-faced members of the student population here ever use their campus lake for a spot of midnight skinny-dipping :p (btw I'd have thot your go-to eatery at Taylor's would be marufuku udon)

  3. Campus security? I have them eating outta my hands, I tell ya. The wonders of a nice formal jacket and formidable demeanour.

    And I guess I'll go eat where the good-lookin', young ones go eat... ;)

  4. Oohh nice!! So near my place! Now I know there are more eateries at Taylor's so I can make a trip there one day :)

  5. lfb: hmmm, i guess when you said you visit taylor's for "talks and what-not," the emphasis was on "what-not." oh well, waste not, want not, right (and beauty certainly shouldn't be wasted merely on the young) :D
    iamthewitch: yeah, there've gotta be at least a dozen cafes at taylor's. some of them are ordinary, like old town white coffee and wong kok char chan teng, but at least the lake ambiance is nice, heheh :D

  7. leo: oh ya, most of these eateries only opened in the last six months. the students here sure have a lot more dining options compared to what i had at USM penang! :D

    ReplyDelete
  8. Yes, but you had REAL nasi kandar penang wor... You luckier lah.

    ReplyDelete
  9. lfb: nasi kandar really pinched the pocket back when i was impoverished student lah. RM10 per plate sometimes :P

  10. i think it'll be a great outlet for the students and those who lived nearby. At least it's nearer to where I live than the PJ trade centre

  11. eiling: just realized i actually have no idea where you live! heheh. ya, and i'm glad that the restaurants on this campus are all open to the public! :D

  12. RM10 per plate? But that's like current prices? I would have imagine prices were considerably cheaper 20 years ago... :P

    ReplyDelete
  13. lfb: ahhh, but i was a growing boy back then, so i had to pile my plate with lotsa chicken, cockles, fried liver and other lauk-pauk that pushed the price up to RM10 :D

    ReplyDelete
  14. Aiyo. I shoulda have seen that one coming.. It would probably have been single-digit if you didn't add them cruel summer cockles... :P

    ReplyDelete
  15. lfb: the worst of the culprits was actually those big prawns (udang galah, i think). adding one of those crispy suckers would send the plate of nasi kandar into RM20-something territory! no wonder my bank account was always empty by the end of the month back in uni =(

    ReplyDelete
  16. Well, let's hope your bank balance fares better these days, despite your affinity for booze and foie gras... :P

    ReplyDelete
  17. lfb: the bank balance fares all right, though i think it's our health that can no longer afford the strain of nasi kandar anymore. imagine the effect of all those thick, cholesterol-choked curries on our arteries! :P

    ReplyDelete
  18. Then you are better off than me and Devil. Our bank balance is indeed getting too many blows of late from eating out. Oh if only we could afford to have one of us as the stay-at-home-spouse and cook meals instead of dining out... Would be healthier too, I reckon. :)

  19. lfb: ahh, but that begs the question of who would bring home the bacon and who would cook the bacon :D and bacon isn't healthy either anyways :P

    ReplyDelete
  20. Bacon shall be obtained together, and cooked together too. Or alternating, taking turns. What's important is that We Eat Bacon! :D

  21. Lfb: ham and eggs for me please! (pork ham, just in case u weren't sure, and three eggs sunny-side-up) *beams*
