TBF @ SetiaWalk, Puchong

When the quintessential dishes of Malaysia & Italy collide, Nasi Lemak Pasta is the inevitable aftermath: TBF recently introduced an enjoyable interpretation of this hybrid recipe (RM18.90), doing justice to both nations with slick strands of pasta coated in a well-balanced sauce that speaks of coconut cream, pandan, ginger & anchovy sambal, accompanied by all the familiar accoutrements of nasi lemak, from hard-boiled eggs & cucumber to peanuts & ikan bilis, plus a boost of poached prawns. A creation capable of satisfying a wide swath of customers - nasi lemak lovers, pasta pursuers & novelty hunters.

Another current highlight is the Jumbo Porkie Platter (RM98), strictly for sharing, showcasing crowd-pleasing components like Spanish pork ribs, pigs in blankets, & siu yok. Our favourite on the platter is the bacon mushroom bombs - battered balls filled with minced pork, lard, shiitake mushrooms cooked with Shaoxing rice wine & button mushrooms wrapped in streaky bacon; we'd happily gobble up more than one of these tasty, textured bombs. The platter comes with a heap of fries & multiple sauces - pineapple chilli, kicap manis chilli, aioli chilli & Dijon mustard - each designed to complement a specific portion of the platter.

If you happen to visit TBF in SetiaWalk, Scott Garden or Sunway Giza, these three branches also boast an extra temptation - Guinness Nutella ice cream, smooth & robust with the nuances of stout (RM12.90 for two scoops with whipping cream, almonds, Oreo crumbs, biscuit flakes & chocolate sauce). At SetiaWalk, customers can linger by the waterways & fountains with TBF's cool classic cocktails - the Old Fashioned is a respectable rendition. Thanks to the TBF team for having us here.

  1. Oh dear! Nasi lemak but there is no nasi. They cooked the pasta in coconut cream or they just tossed? I would go for the porkie platter - looks gorgeous! RM98 for all that is cheap compared to what we had here the other night, same price...but not that much in the platter.

    1. Suituapui: the pasta is quite well coated with the sauce, so each strand of the pasta is pretty creamy and flavoursome, sort of the way a carbonara pasta texture might be :) yeah, after you try the huge pork platter here, your porky cravings should be quite satiated for the next few days! :)

  2. Hmmm... Nasi lemak pasta but sans the nasi.. What's the point huh? Better call it pasta lemak instead �� That being said, I was wondering what is TBF until you wrote The Beer Factory at the end. It has been a while since the last time I went to a pub

    1. Leo: heh, i think nasi lemak pasta is OK for identification purposes - since there are other masak lemak dishes in the malay cookbook, so this makes it clear it's definitely inspired by nasi lemak. but i agree with you that it can also lead to different expectations - i too thought there might be some nasi on the plate, though ultimately, i guess the rice element might not really fit into this dish, since the pasta supplies all the necessary carbs ;) yeah, there's been some rebranding for the tbf brand for some of its branches ... that confuses me too sometimes! :)
