Another lunch at KDU

My three boys and I went to KDU Bon Apetit Restaurant to have lunch today and we are glad that this time, the foods taste great! Our last visit was alright but things have improved so much this week. I suppose my eldest son and his friends are now more pro than their first few weeks.

I didn’t bring my camera today but I have the video camera with me. So, I managed to shoot a short clip of our lunch.

If a picture says a thousand words, I guess a video clip says a million things? I started the clip with our journey with scenes of the Queen Victoria Clock Tower at Bulatan King Edward where the bank areas/Esplanade is. Next you see is the steel structure which is suppose to be a pinang dibelah dua but some folks thought it is an egg all the time! The video from our car wasn’t that nice because of my heavily tinted window but you can see some of the buildings in Penang.

When I am free, I may want to take a more decent shot of Penang, minus the shaky hands from the moving car. It is fun doing video filming and video editing. Once I got a hang of it, it is like writing a blog post with the video camera. My video camera is just the lower range, non-HD type because I am using it mostly for online upload and I don’t need high quality files. Right now, I am using Canon FS100 which is only RM1,350. I like this model because it allows external mike jack, unlike other brands which restrict us to use only their brand of external mike. As citizen journalists, we need the external mike to record interviews.

Back to lunch, the menu today is :
Cream of brocolli which is really gooood….

Black pepper steak with mashed potatoes. Due to cost control, the steak is from India but it wasn’t so bad. I like that they have served medium rare steak without over cooked or too raw.

The other main dish option is chicken cordon bleu which in my opinion is very good. The chicken is not dry at all and with the brown sauce, it makes it so much moist. Usually, chicken cordon bleu is served without the gravy and I hate the dry version.

And dessert? I only managed a bite of the cream caramel pudding because my little boy walloped all of them. You just need to see the video to know how beautiful and how nice the dessert is.

So, kudos to the chefs in training, including the chef here!

The price of the lunch is RM13 and available only through tickets bought from the students. One needs to make pre-order. The lunch cooked by my son and his batch of course mates is available on Friday from 12 noon to 2 pm. Anyone game to be guinea pigs? Let me know and I can reserve the tickets for you. It is really value for money with free flow of orange squash.

I must mention that the sweet girl who served did a great job today.

    We have heard about this kind of professional student meals but yet to sample them, as in Sunway College KL
    Maybe after this inspiration TQ

    theNG – My son and his coursemates only cook on Friday. They are in their second year for the Diploma in Professional Chef so I cannot guarantee quality of the food wor. But one has to buy the tickets through the students cos they only cook for limited number of pax. They also have to sell off the tickets before their weekly duty or else they have to eat and pay for the foods, themselves. Hehehe, marketing training, I guess. This coming Friday, 1st May they are closed, btw.

    We also went to similar type of dining, by Taylor’s student. Very worth it, but yes, as guinea pigs. 😀
