Papa J's Kitchen, Kota Bharu

I'm in the utmost missing level while editing these pictures!

Just last month, we were having a great day celebrating Ni's birthday at Papa J's Kitchen,
and now we are apart from each other, having different kind of work life. 

While sharing with you this wonderful moment,
I will also share with you this wonderful restaurant located in Kota Bharu, Kelantan. 
It's the Papa J's Kitchen. 

I have not been able to update my blog for quite a long while since I haven't got myself settle down in my new life. 
I have been traveling from school to home quite frequently and it was tiring. 
Spent more time on my work also my family this time since I haven't got the chance to real gather up with my parent for the past five years.
Guess I am trying to compensate before it's too late :)

Here comes the pictures taken when we were at Papa J's Kitchen.

I'll let the pictures do most of the talking, 
and at the same time
 I will, too, review this lovely restaurant. 

In front of Papa J's Kitchen.
I know Papa J's Kitchen simply doesn't look like a restaurant. 
but as the old one says, don't judge the book by its cover,
Papa J's Kitchen serves one the best western/American cuisine in KB town. 

With lovely Esther before we walked in the restaurant.
(Oh I miss her loud laughing voice! :D)

Papa J's Kitchen is kinda like a household-theme kinda restaurant. 
It is a cozy home dinning outlet serving western cuisine from a private home.
There's not much of decoration,
but it definitely gives you a feel of home. 

A little decorations at their wardrobe to brighten up the scenery.

Fyi, if you are interested to pay them a visit, 
You will have to book the time since there's only two table at once. 
For more information, please scroll down to the end of this post. :)

With beautiful PS

With Michelle :)

With cute baby Chong. ^^

And not to forget, 
the birthday girl, Ni. :)

Okay, here comes the appetizer, the mushroom soup
Although it was named 'mushroom' soup, 
but I sense a lil potatoes in it.
The taste was mild,
definitely good to warm up the stomach before the heavy meal. 

Michelle's and Ni's Teriyaki Salmon
Salmon was cooked in a good way and a good temperature. 
It's crispy on the outside, 
and soft on the inside. 
It's a mouth-watering meal. :)

Ting's and Pei Si's Chicken Parmigiana
The typical Chicken Parmigiana, served with tomatoes, 
and baked in a good way. 
I didn't really remember the taste,
but I remember Ting said it was nice. 
Probably because the smell of cheese was not too strong.
For me, I am more of a cheese person, 
so this will not be in my favourite list. 

Chicken Breast 
stuffed with cheese, chicken ham and dried apricots 
served with a Parmesan cheese sauce
(Yea it's a long name) :P
I enjoy this meal although I have only tried a bite of it. 
The stuffed filling was so special especially the apricot!
Who has ever thought of this brilliant combination?!
A must try! :)

Seafood Aglio Olio
Frankly speaking, 
I was a little bit disappointed by the looking.
I know I shouldn't judge it by the looking,
but I have always pay attention to the culinary art before I taste the food.
So I have actually cut down the mark as soon as it was served. 
the taste was good!
I am assuming the chef was really tired from cooking because we arrived there earlier than the booking time.
And he had to rush to cook so many dished.
And thus the last plate (mine) was served in a hurry. 

I was simply overjoyed by the amount of the meal.
It really filled my up :)

we had ice-cream brownie as dessert. 

We sang birthday song to Ni and forgot that the ice-cream is melting...

And so it looked 'stupid' :P

Overall, it was a pleasant experience in Papa J's Kitchen
The chef was really friendly and showed us quite a few of his masterpieces when he was working as a film director.
And he was kind enough to play guitar for us to sing the birthday song to Ni.
We were having so much fun together,
it's like a home :)

Miss you ol's :)
