Hey guys and gals!
Waho this coming week 11th, 12th and 14th is gonna be really hectic.. but I guess its not good to question good things but just open with open arms.. even if those same arms cramp up and fall off..
Anyway as good photographers, we need to scout the areas before hand at times.. usually we have to reach the place early and do the necessary 'walk around' and determine the proper lighting and do some test shots before the whole event starts..
This is a photograher's homework actually.. and in line with our professionalism, we've scouted out Jarrod & Rawlins @ Damansara Heights last saturday.. for the shoot on the 12th.. So here's the glimpse of how J&R looks like..
Frankly this is the first time I've been to J&R.. after being traumatized by Mr Ho's pork wonderland @ Mid Valley.. seriously that dude's food almost made me turn my back on siu yok.. and was afraid to try any of these german deli style of foods… anyway that Mr Ho's pork wonderland closed down and turn Carin Pharmacy.. I guess its the shop lot's way of redeeming itself since falling from grace..
So here I am, giving J&R a chance to change my mind … so lets start with the opening view when one steps into J&R.. this used to be a bangalow house turn restaurant..
We've met a cool guy Gobi which I told him reminded me of Gobi Desert.. near Mongolia.. seems like these dudes all fail geography but hey, I need them to serve me good food and not a geographical lesson so I'm cool with it..
J&R is splitted into 4 distinct floors.. upon entering, you'll be greeted with the food counter..
then if you take a small flight of stairs up, you'll enter the fine dining J&R style.. the picture is the glimpse of the fine dining ambience that awaits..
Then if you take another flight up, you'll be greeted with the bar..
And last but not least is at the bottom floor.. which holds most of the function/events and unfortunately mosquitos as well..
So far, the place has an extremely cozy feel to it.. not bad ambience..
Now all we've left after the tour is to sample the food.. so off we went back and pick our 'meats' from the deli counter.. If you head down there, go meet the supervisor there Gobi.. a really amazing and cool fella.. and seriously he knows his stuff.. right down to wines.. since my last encounter of a dude trying to introduce me white wine when I ordered nasi goreng.. is sufficient to say that a lot of people out there don't know nuts about their wines or food but this guy passed with flying piggies.. yumm…
Anyway this was the first victim.. melted cheese on top of portobello mushroom.. you know the ones used for Carl's JR portobello mushroom burger.. yum.. delicious.. seriously this is the only few seconds that the mushroom was left unattended.. after which somehow all was left was just the plate.. burp.. it wasn't me.. trust me..
Ok here's the main courses.. 3 sausages of different flavors.. the most spicy of all is the dynamite flavored sausage.. seriously this isn't for the light hearted.. but for me its just perfect.. even dipped into french mustard and english mustard (has a similar kick when eating Japanese wasabi) .. seriously all of the sausages didn't have any overwhelming porkish smell and flavor.. it was just a joy.. a surprising one.. so damn you Mr Ho..
The picture below is just the pork bacon and fries.. oooh god that onion sauce.. which was meant for the mash potato.. try dipping the normal fries.. yummilicious.. damn.. I did ask if there was a job opening.. burp..
So far, this place got Ardent's recommendation certification (if one ever existed in the first place) .. Strange as it is, I'm not sure if I'll be shooting pictures while taking fries dipped in onion sauce breaks.. such a distraction.. kekkee
Ok, till the next time..
