Exotic, Desa Sri Hartamas: Exotic, Indeed!

It feels great to be able to blog and not bog down by work. Here’s keeping my fingers crossed that it’ll be a while more before my next hiatus. As mentioned in an earlier post, although the blogging has stopped during the hiatus, the eating has not. And thanks to the Qguides for the invitation, many weeks ago, I’ve managed to savour a surprisingly good Indochina meal.

I used the word “surprising” because truth be told, I’ve not heard many good things about this place before the invited review. Hence, I’ve always deter from walking into its premises in the past and chose other establishments over it. I don’t know what has changed, it could be the chef or the recipes, but if the dishes served the other night were anything to go by, I’d be happy to bring my friends back there for a meal. That is saying a lot for a place I wouldn’t step into a month back. And the one thing I really like about Exotic is the fact that I can get Vietnamese, Cambodia and Thai dishes all in one place.

Anyway, because it’s a Monday, I’m making this a visual heavy post. Enjoy!








Thanks again to the Qguides for setting this session up and to Jess Lew for feeding us that evening. Looking forward to a meal there again soon. You can make your reservations through the Qguides and earn rewards when you dine through them.

    HAHAHAHAHA.. I laughed so hard I almost pee-d in my pants!! That confounded look on FBB's face! Priceless! And Big Frat looks like how a father would react when his favourite child shit-ted on the leather seats in his new X6.. :D

    Lil Frat garnished with an orchid and mint – he looks like a Hawaiian cocktail!!

    Excellent post, Munky. But unfortunately, as a food review you failed miserably because your brilliant cartoon overshadowed everything else!! :D

    J: yeah, notti frat. Can't bring him anywhere.

    C&C: Hehe, can u tell that I really wanted to make a comic?

    Old Man: oh please, I'm chopped liver compared to you. Now that Frat has done Indochina, where would u like to see Frat do next? Vegas?

    Aly-uring: Yah, never take a banana from him. Ever!

    Joe: Happy Monday to ya!

    LFB: Stole it from AhPa's comments. Read his review yet? I love it.

    Frat: U are all but 6" tall! Now go sit in your little corner

    Msiagirl: Glad to be of service

    Sean: I had to, the was no where else to go with the story. LOL

    Thule: How are you bro? Thanks for the hat. Will collect from you when I meet you next

    GFAD: Can't you tell I'm trying hard not to talk about the meal so much? LOL

    LL: Now that you mentioned it, yeah Ciki was there. But think she blended in too well with the red table cloths-lah. Couldn't tell her apart. So, could only remember Aly being there. :P

    Eiling: It's either a spanking or this. So I chose the more humane option.
