US FRIES FIESTA 2019 – SPEAKEASY BAR AND KITCHEN

Posted by crizlai On June - 28 - 2019

The Potatoes USA’s U.S. Fries Fiesta campaign, which is ongoing from 17 June to 21 July 2019, has 5 participating outlets and one of them is Speakeasy Bar and Kitchen. This outlet has one of the most extensive dining menus compared to others, with options ranging from main course, pasta, platters, pizza, burger, salad, soup and a long list of finger snacks. More additions would be available within these few weeks to satisfy your appetite even more. If not for dining, there would also be some alcohol promotions and lots of U.S. potatoes snacks to chill out while enjoying some Mandopop live band music during weekends.

The outlet would be promoting 3 dishes, namely Garlic Butter Escargot in U.S. Potato Boat, U.S. Waffle Pan-Seared Norwegian Salmon and U.S. Wedges Lamb Cutlet.

The Garlic Butter Escargot in U.S. Potato Boat (RM18nett) was impressively tasty, especially with the added cheese which brought out the ultimate umami sensation.

I was expecting a normal serving of U.S. Waffle Pan-Seared Norwegian Salmon (RM35nett) but the portion was humongous and the dish came with lots of ratatouille and U.S. Criss Cut Fries. Moreover, the salmon cut given was way bigger than most I’ve eaten.

If fish is not your choice, you could also go for their U.S. Wedges Lamb Cutlet (RM36nett). Who could resist two big slabs of delicious lamb cutlets with so much of mashed potatoes and potato wedges at that price? It’s surely a dish value for the money paid.

There will also be a Facebook Contest where the public can win dining vouchers on a weekly basis with a grand prize of an iPad at the end of contest. All they need to do is to order any US Fries Fiesta dish from any of the participating outlets and post a creative caption and photo of the U.S Potatoes dish with #MYPotatoesUSA, plus “Check In” to the participating outlet. Terms and conditions apply.

The outlet would be promoting 3 dishes, namely U.S. Crisscut Fries Special, Mixed U.S. Fries Platter and U.S. Fries with Special Chicken Burger.

The U.S. Crisscut Fries Special (RM10nett) had some salsa with melted cheese, served with pickled jalapeno. It was simple yet refreshing.

The Mixed U.S. Fries Platter (RM14nett) consisted of 3 different types of fries and the dish came with some salsa dipping sauce.

The U.S. Fries with Special Chicken Burger (RM18nett) had a big chunk of batter-fried chicken and it came with loads of mixed fries as well.

US FRIES FIESTA 2019 – 9’S GRILL & CAFE

Posted by crizlai On June - 26 - 2019

When it comes to creativity, 9‘S Grill & Café in Ipoh, Perak, topped many others in the ongoing U.S. Fries Fiesta 2019 campaign by Potatoes USA, which would be running from 17 June to 21 July 2019. The outlet does serve some high-end dishes such as the Matsuzaka Beef, considered as the most expensive beef out of all types of beef amongst the locals in Japan, even overshadowing the taste of many other beef types with its divine melt-in-the-mouth sensation and sweet aftertaste. However, the outlet does also cater some wallet-friendly dishes for families.

This outlet would be promoting 2 dishes, namely Deep-Fried U.S. Criss Cut with Pandan Cream & Palm Sugar served with Gula Melaka Ice Cream and Salted Duck Egg U.S. Fried Potato Rounds with Smoked Duck Breast & Salad in Popiah Skin Bowl.

Who would have expected potatoes to be served as part of a dessert? The Deep-Fried U.S. Criss Cut with Pandan Cream & Palm Sugar served with Gula Melaka Ice Cream (RM15+) was superb as it was like having an ice-shaven chendol with bits of crunchy bites, minus the intense flavor of coconut cream.

The Salted Duck Egg U.S. Fried Potato Rounds with Smoked Duck Breast & Salad in Popiah Skin Bowl (RM18+) was something out of the world as the dish had distinctive flavors from the added salted egg yolks, beef bacon, curry leaves as well as some hidden spicy hot chili paddy. I won’t mind having some hot steaming rice to go with the dish, if possible.

There will also be a Facebook Contest where the public can win dining vouchers on a weekly basis with a grand prize of an iPad at the end of contest. All they need to do is to order any US Fries Fiesta dish from any of the participating outlets and post a creative caption and photo of the U.S Potatoes dish with #MYPotatoesUSA, plus “Check In” to the participating outlet.

US FRIES FIESTA 2019 – ROOFTOP RESTAURANT AND BAR

Posted by crizlai On June - 25 - 2019

Rooftop Restaurant and Bar is another one of the participants in the Potatoes USA’s ongoing U.S. Fries Fiesta campaign, happening from 17 June to 21 July 2019 in Ipoh, Perak. The spacious outlet is equipped with pool tables, electronic dart boards, sports news on many scattered flat screens, and live band during weekends to keep you and your companies entertained throughout your presence there. It’s a great venue to chill out and release some stress.

The café would be promoting 3 dishes, namely U.S. Hash Brown Cheese Burger, U.S. Popcorn Hash Brown and U.S. Loaded Waffle Fries.

If you are a big eater, their U.S. Hash Brown Cheese Burger (Homemade beef patty only – RM28+) would suit you well. It was one of those legitimately tasty burgers which have moist yet tasty beef patties. Of course, there would be a big piece of hash brown and curly fries for the bulk to fill up your appetite.

The U.S. Popcorn Hash Brown (RM13+) was nothing to shout about but then accompanied by the tasty cheese dip, they could be deliciously blasted bombs in the mouth.

The portion for the U.S. Loaded Waffle Fries (RM25+) was huge and with the dressed salsa and creesy sauce, who could stop munching over bottles of beer?

There will also be a Facebook Contest where the public can win dining vouchers on a weekly basis with a grand prize of an iPad at the end of contest.

US FRIES FIESTA 2019 – LAZY CHEF

The Potatoes USA has kicked off its U.S. Fries Fiesta campaign from 17 June to 21 July 2019 in Penang with 15 participating outlets and for the first time in Ipoh, Perak, with 5 participating outlets. The outlets would be using various U.S. fries varieties to pep up creative, unique and tantalizing dishes to bring some excitements to fries enthusiasts. One of the participating outlets in Ipoh is the Lazy Chef, a cafe serving amazing brunch, delicious teatime dessert treats and freshly grounded coffee.

The café would be promoting 3 dishes, namely U.S. Waffle Fries, U.S. Hashy and Ocean on U.S. Hash Brown.

The U.S. Waffle Fries (RM15nett) might look rather simple but yet the dish was packed with flavorful bites from the added crunchy beef bacon plus lots of grated parmesan cheese. No dipping sauce was provided but then you could always grab a bottle of mustard to pep up some pungent flavors.

On the other hand, the U.S. Hashy (RM23nett) was delicious, especially when combining the oozing egg yolk from the sunny side up, accompanied by the crunchy beef bacon. I won’t mind having this dish for breakfast.

The Ocean on U.S. Hash Brown (RM28nett) remained as everyone’s favorite as the whole concoction was taste-perfect for just any meal. It had a slice of crunchy fried hash brown as the base, topped with some tartar sauce, fish fritter, smoked salmon and artfully dressed with some gherkins, capers, cherry tomatoes and some micro greens. We almost licked the plate clean~ Haha!

There will also be a Facebook Contest where the public can win dining vouchers on a weekly basis with a grand prize of an iPad at the end of contest. All they need to do is to order any US Fries Fiesta dish from any of the participating outlets and post a creative caption and photo of the U.S Potatoes dish with #MYPotatoesUSA, plus “Check In” to the participating outlet.

This year, you would get to savor home-style dishes from the various states in Malaysia with the main highlight being the Minangkabau dishes from Negeri Sembilan. The Kitchen team would arrange more than 170 dishes which would include 6 live action stalls, 2 types of carving, 6 types of Gulai Kawah, up to 20 main dishes, 2 types of savory rice, and more than 15 types of desserts to get your saliva dripping from the minute you stepped into Spice Brasserie.

Let’s have a tour on what are the items available for your Ramadan buffet dinner experiences. We would start off with Salad, Appetizer, Soup, Selection of Breads & Rolls including Roti Benggali, Grill Station, Roast and ‘live’ action station such as carvery, noodles, deep-fry, Indian Station, Chinese Station as well as Western favorites that will certainly satisfy your palate. Perennial favorites of Nasi Impit drizzled with sweet peanut sauce, and Lemang accompanied with Serunding and delicious rendang will be part of the arrays too. Wide variety or traditional salads or locally known as ulam, a popular main dish in traditional Malay villages and a variety of aromatic spicy sambal to give it that extra zing.

The main menu would be rotated daily throughout the Ramadan month with flavourful cuisines comprising of the key highlight such as Lamb ‘Percik Minang” (Kambing Percik Minang), Coffee-Crusted Beef Tenderloin (Daging Lembu Tenderloin Dengan Salutan Kopi Istimewa), Chilli Crab (Ketam Bercili), Field Beans & Drumstick Salted Fish Curry (Kari Ikan Masin Dengan Kacang Bidang & Murunggai), Duck Egg Bird’s Eye Chilli Coconut Gravy (Telur Itik Masak Lemak Cili Padi), Hot & Spicy Assam Stingray (Ikan Pari Asam Pedas), Beef Rendang “Nogori” (Rendang Daging Nogori), Pineapple with Dried Shrimp in Sweet-Spicy Coconut Curry (Pajeri Nenas Udang Kering), Lamb Keema in Pita Bread (Kambing Keema Dengan Roti Pita), Gearbox Soup (Sup Tulang Daging) and special Lamb Char Koay Teow (Koay Teow Kambing).

Do not forget to check out their Teh Tarik section, where you would get to savor one of the best beverages in this region.
