Ohana

As any fan of "Lilo & Stitch" can inform you, Ohana means "family" _ the perfect name for this commendably friendly outlet, where a Hawaiian theme takes center stage in the setting.

The type of salad that an island resort might serve, featuring roast chicken with tomatoes, capsicum, lettuce & mayonnaise dressing. Forgettable, without the extra spark to elevate it.

Can't fault the burger, which comprised a meaty beef patty with all the typical toppings, but can't praise it much either, since there are more satisfying ones elsewhere.

Skip the cliched chicken-&-pineapple pizzas & say aloha to this one instead, topped with salmon & black olives. Yummier than expected, with a perfectly crisp thin crust & a zesty tomato sauce that tasted fresh instead of artificial.

No wine is sold (since this outlet caters mainly to students), but beer is available.

Passion fruit green tea & hazelnut chocolate frappes. Could be richer & creamier.

Customers can laze outside with a sweeping view of Taylor's Lakeside Campus.



Ohana,
The Boardwalk, Taylor's Lakeside Campus, Subang Jaya.

    1. Simple Person: heh, that's true! some wine can be cheaper than premium beer. and i guess students who are old enough to drink beer can also drink wine :D

  7. Oh I have never had salmon in pizza! Oh Sean I know I keep saying this but you're lucky to have tasted very delicious foods.
    I would certainly enjoy my time at this restaurant. I'm surprised the salad doesn't include pineapple

  8. I would put up with mediocre food for a view of the Lakeside! It's nice that the restaurants actually stay open after classes are over don't you think?

    1. Dropsofcontentment: oh yeah, but i wish the restaurants here would open on sundays too! i think many of them close on weekends, but that's a shame for us, since parking here is difficult during weekdays =)

  9. Was at Taylor's over the weekend and it is such a nice campus. Kinda reminded me of Bond in Australia if it had just a little bit more landscape.

    Ohana sounds (and looks) like a good chill out place for students and office folks who don't want to join the mad jam nearby. For college grub, this is actually quite good. Have seen worse ones.

  10. food seems mediocre but the population of students here will sustain it.
    I wonder, has there been any outlet which actually closed down here?

  12. Actually, props to the novelty of the theme - Hawaiian (apart from maligned chicken & pineapple pizza) hasn't really been exploited by the local F&B scene here and I'd imagine the cuisine would go down really well with us!
