Zaika , Authentic Indian Restaurant.

I've been wanting to try out Zaika since their opening, but I have no get the chance to do so. Yesterday Tracy asked if I wanted to go Zaika, I answered "yes"without any hesitation. So thank for suggesting it for lunch, everyone was hungry at the time and it is a good timing.

The four of us drop by there for lunch, Zaika is just above Fratini's restaurant. I like the ambience and the decors that blends well with the restaurant's theme, the music played there is a good too and it gives you the sort zen feeling or feeling like in a trance. My friend almost fell asleep to the music, LOL!

Now I cannot actually remember exactly what is the name of the dishes that we order, but I will do my best to name the item. We had Tandoori chicken, lamb, 4 types of Naan bread, mix vegetables, and briyani rice all recommended by the waiter. Before the food is serve, we were given appetizers. It is like those pappodom crackers usually served in other Indian restaurants. After 10 minutes, our food is served.

I love the mix vegetable thing, the spiciness and the aroma of the spices is lovely. The mango lassi was one the best I have ever had, it was very potent but super nice. My Overall POV, the food, the service is all good. Would I go back? the answer is yes I would go back for more Indian food.

Starbucks coffee in Miri

The first coffee franchise outlet that opened was San Francisco coffee, follow by coffee bean. Recently starbucks has open one of their outlet here in Miri Bintang plaza. I have only tried starbucks a couple of times when I was in KL, since they are here and s a coffee lover I might as well drop by to check it.

The ambience of the place is great, decorated with artistic decors and the color of the interior blends well the theme. Service is excellence, I asked for a recommendation and they did not disappoint me. Any food & beverage outlets that I patronize, I would usually do that to see what is their flagship dish or signature items. I had the mocha with coffee Jelly, Eric had the Caramel and Rin had the Java Bean.

The iced blended is not too sweet, the coffee taste is there and it is not masked. Which is good, unlike other places you usually don't taste the coffee and it is always too sweet. Just one more thing, parking in bintang plaza is a real bitch Lucky for me I stay a few blocks always so I can always walk there. It is good to see more food & beverage outlets opening here in Miri, next stop Soho, Secret recipe, and Zaika.
