An amazing product with great health benefits, palm oil lends itself to various culinary genres.
Accidents do happen. They are not something we think too often about and the very nature of accidents is that they will happen when we least expect them.
Given the not too good figures for Malaysian road accident statistics, we should at least know what to do if we are unfortunate to be involved in an accident. Equipped with this knowledge, we won’t need to panic. We can calmly manage the situation if we are not seriously injured.
This knowledge is even more important for new drivers who must be aware of the involvement of related parties such as the police, tow truck drivers & insurers.
We wanted to have a special birthday celebration for my sister-in-law KT and Kai’s Plato was suggested by niece-in-law Immy. Since we live to eat and are ever ready for a food adventure, Kai’s Plato seemed to be an interesting & attractive choice and was confirmed as the venue.
It was planned as a surprise birthday celebration but KT found out about it. So we ‘cancelled’ the event & went ahead with it so that it would be a surprise no-surprise celebration. She was pleasantly surprised so it worked. LOL, real fun, it was!!
I did mention Unique so what’s unique about Kai’s Plato? Since it is in KD, it obviously won’t be by the beach.
Alright, here’s what everybody is talking about in Kai’s Plato’s own words …. “the 1st in Malaysia to have the most tiers with more than 10 types of scrumptious seafood in a tower platter.” Fresh seafood comes served in a tower platter to be finished tier by tier from top to bottom. Cool! The tasty yummy soup in the bottom platter is a splendid way to finish a great delicious sumptuous feast. It goes well with the Angel hair.
Take a look at the Side Orders menu if you want some side dishes. We had soft shell crabs, deep fried squid & otak otak. I love the crabs which were really crunchy and appetizing.
Wait, there’s another surprise. The other unique point about Kai’s Plato is its concept of “Hands and Table” … simply enjoy and eat with our hands as they are the best utensils we have for eating seafood. I think we all can pretty much agree with this statement. It was a simple affair of helping yourself to food from the platter (Caution: It’s steaming hot!) and attacking it on waxed paper laid over the table. But you will need a bowl for the soup. 😉
To fully enjoy this new experience, photography unfortunately had to take a backseat. You do not want to mess with the camera with dirty messy hands for sure! The pictures were quick snaps with my Zenfone 2. Food Photography, however, will be the priority on my next visit.
While waiting for your tower platter, create some memories on clam shells with the coloring pens provided. They get to go to the wall in the restaurant. How’s that for creating some lasting memory?
The birthday boy / girl gets a complimentary bottle of Makkoli rice wine to celebrate the moment. High Five!
So, if you are a seafood lover and are looking for a unique dining experience, you are in for a treat. We had a blast enjoying the fresh seafood & each other’s company. Thanks for a great recommendation.Immy!!
Is Kai’s Plato recommended? It gets a DO-DID-DONE recommendation for satisfying our search for a new & good experience. Service was good & attentive. The environment is relaxing with a fun ambience.
Kai’s Plato is located at Garden Office @Encorp Strand, Kota Damansara in the building block beside GIANT. They are on Facebook, so check them out for further details.
We were a bit disoriented when we were in the car park. But the food adventurers were not deterred, of course.
Let the story unfold ……
If your last visit to Melaka has been some years ago, you will be amazed by its transformation into a vibrant, modern city. Some parts might even be unrecognizable. It is fortunate that it is able to retain some of its old charm, rich culture & old buildings with its recognition by UNESCO as a heritage city.
One of the latest attractions is the Sky Tower at The Shore (located by the Melaka River) where you can take in the spectacular & breathtaking 360 deg view of the city from the rooftop of Sky Tower. A RM18 (adult) entrance ticket is required to access the rooftop.
This is how you will make it there. Be sure to use the special lift that takes you to the 41st floor. Floor 42 can be reached by stairs or elevator. Level 43, the rooftop is where you want to be.
Even if you are not afraid of heights, there is a good chance that you will find yourself taking slower steps. And remember, keep breathing, LOL!
Other than the bird’s eye view, watch out for the transparent fish pool and transparent platform / deck for the daredevils. You are only allowed to challenge your fear of heights at the transparent platform if you want to have your picture taken. Take note that it is a paid service. Don’t be surprised that the photographer is nowhere to be seen. Your picture is captured by a camera which is controlled remotely.
Best time to visit
The best time to visit is just before sunset to witness the magical transformation that happens before your very eyes as day turns into night. You will be wise to avoid the punishing heat of the hot midday sun.
Food / Sky Dining Experience
Try the Sky Deli if you want to eat in style for an exceptional sky dining experience.
I’ll let the pictures tell the rest of the story. They were taken with my smartphone.
