Gerai, The Food Loft @ Centerpoint Bandar Utama

This new cafe called Gerai, The Food Loft located in Centerpoint BU is becoming our canteen, judging by their portions and price tags. It's a little pricier than the food court, but the food is tasty and the quality and portion is there to match. And because this little place is located in Bandar Utama, it's attracting a lot of office folks from around the vicinity, and getting a table can be quite a challenge during lunch time.

I've already had a few lunches in a row in this place, simply because it's convenient, food is tasty, portions are generous, and sometimes I just don't know what else to eat! XP No complains about Gerai so far, except maybe some of the soup base dishes tend to be a wee bit sweet. Oh, if you're planning to take away food from here, best to bring your own tupperware. They charge RM 0.50 for packaging, something about using better quality plastic to pack the food. 

Soy chicken and Japanese tofu and fried egg, RM 11.90++
This rice dish was my first order during my first visit to Gerai. I coulnd't finish it, rice portion was pretty big (also because I don't take much rice). Sedaps!

Mee suah with chicken and egg. Think it was RM 8.90++
Love this dish, simply because it's mee suah, and the soup has Chinese wine it it ^_^

Bamboo charcoal noodles with smoked duck, RM 8.90++
This one had a chef recommended icon next to it, and the idea of having bamboo charcoal noodles intrigued me. Noodles had a springy texture (I like!), served with a few slices of smoked duck, minced meat, fuchuk and half an egg. Yummeh!

I've also tried a few other fried rice dishes, namely the Yong Chow fried rice (which was just so-so) and the prawn fried rice (which was not too bad, had what the Chinese called 'wok hei'). Both rice dishes cost RM 9.90++
