If you are looking for a place to eat that is not too fancy and tasty, you might want to key in SS26/4 into your GPS. It will lead you to a restaurant that has many tables and seats under the deep blue sky or the dark moonlight. It was once a hut around the corner, but now it has already upgraded to a shoplot, converted into a full sized kitchen for cooking a wide variety of food which you can never think of..
Gerai William or plainly, William's, offers unique dishes ranging from Asian to Western food and most of them are enhanced recipe's made by the owner, William himself.. His daughter, Charnice is a friend of mine and she took some of us there for dinner.. We have always heard so much about her dad's restaurant but never got the chance to try it. However, the wait wasn't long as we dashed into the restaurant last night..
Esther, Charnice, Bryan and William..
The restaurant is usually full every night..
Cozy it was as we sat in the open together in the cool breezy night. Technically, there is no indoor seating as the whole shoplot is a kitchen as said above. Customers actually have the freedom to walk into the kitchen to check out what happens behind the scenes. With that, we can see the cleanliness of the kitchen and good handling of food there by the cooks.. I was so glad that the restaurant actually had no flies around, and that I can enjoy my meal in peace without swinging my hand everywhere.
Above all, the food was pure delight.. I am not exaggerating but I am being frank here.. The restaurant is so famous that no menu is needed and most people already know what to order when they get seated. If you are new to that place, feel free to enter the kitchen to choose any food you like from a large chalk board menu.. Among the food that we ordered were..
The seafood risotto had muscles, clamps, salmon, squid, prawns and bamboo clams, served with cheese..
premium penuh- rm50
premium penuh (red meat platter).. various meats from lamb to beef, sausage, minced meat, chicken wings and mashed potato..
gouda cheese naan- rm8
gouda cheese naan is basically the famous indian dish, naan with cheese.. its served with caramel sauce, chocolate, condensed milk or butter..
nasi goreng ketam- rm25
nasi goreng chicken chop- rm 15
freshly cut potatoes deep fried till crispy
Not to forget the mouth watering deserts made by Esther;
panna cotta- rm 12
chocolate torte- rm8 (personal favorite =D)
gelato and cream puffs- rm 12
creme brulee- rm 10drinks small- rm 4
big drinks- rm 7
You may find the texture of the meat just about average, but what makes the food good here is because of its taste.. No preservatives or msg are used and the recipes are made by the owner himself.. This big time family business brings you home cooked food at the streets of Petaling Jaya.. Do try it for yourself if you havent.. =)
If you also drop by William's, don't forget to stop by Bam Bam Closet too.. Its a store run by Esther, the lady who made the delightful desserts, and she sells a lot of known perfumes for a cheaper price.. These products are basically rejected from the original company, having small or minor damages, just because those companies have a high standard in quality.. So if you are looking for branded perfumes or make up at a cheaper price, don't forget to drop by the closet which is just right beside William's..
So, do bring your friends along because the dishes are big and theyre good for sharing.. =) tee hee.. =P
