Little Cottage, Burma Road – A Place for Romantic Ambiance

For those who read my post previously, you might probably have read my post on Waterfall Hotel, Little Cottage 2. The food at Little Cottage 2 is good and has a very cozy ambiance. This time instead of re-visiting Little cottage 2, I’m going to review on Little Cottage 1.

It is not hard to locate Little Cottage 1. If you are driving through Burma Road, you will sure pass by Telekom Malaysia on your left, where Burma Road is a one-way road. After about 20 meters, look on your right and you will see CTY or Chew Thean Yeang Aquarium on your right. Just a few shops ahead, you will notice there is a small hut called Little Cottage Cafe.

Looking for a place that can immediately get away from the hustle and bustle of city life? This is the  place that you are looking for. Although it is located in the midst of town area, with the quiet and romantic setting it would definitely free up you mind. Each table is equipped with a small candle light coupled with soft background music which makes the place ideal for romantic couples or small families. Part of the pictures is supplied by Patrick Soon of Moonspell Studio.

Lamb shank – RM29.90, also known as  “Ossu Buccu de Angelo”. Lamb Shank Stew comes together with fragrant Italian mushroom rice and grilled veggie. The lamb was well marinated and cooked to perfection. The meat was soft and less firm compared to Little Cottage 2. The gravy was slightly sweet which is a great combination to the lamb. However, the mushroom rice was too overwhelmed with black pepper taste and I could hardly tasted any mushrooms in it.

Grill Almond Fish, Set Lunch – Price: RM 15.90, full of fragrant almond flakes, the fish is served together with tartar sauce and lime slice. The flake was crunchy, the fish is believed to be dory fish. The meal inclusive of:

  • Butter roll
  • Soup of the day
  • Main course
  • Dessert
  • Coffee/Tea

Lamb Shoulder (black pepper sauce), Lunch Set *Popular Choice – RM19.90. The sauce has too strong touch of black pepper. The sense of the pepper had overwhelmed the dish. I believe if the sauce is substituted with mint sauce will be a great combination. This meal is inclusive of:

  • Butter roll
  • Soup of the day,
  • Main course,
  • Dessert
  • Coffee/Tea

Lobster Combo Special, Dinner Set – RM 49.90, baked lobster & thermidor, with the choice of:

  • Lamb
  • Chicken
  • Beef

The beef was cooked to medium, which is normal and suits majority audience. The sauce of the beef is again black pepper which overwhelmed the dish as well.

The dessert which was served together with the set meal was bread pudding. The taste was acceptable. There were crunchy bits above the custard line, whereas in the middle to the end of the layer was soft.

Clam Chowder Bread Bowl – RM19.90. The bowl-shape bread was soft and fluffy, and it was stuffed with potato based soup. The soup was full of herbs and it was very milky and creamy. The drawback of the soup is the portion of clam was not enough.

Fresh Mushroom Soup – RM 9.90. The taste of Mushroom soup was very thick and it had alot of mushrooms in it.

Seafood Olio – RM28.90. Seafood “Olio” (Spaghetti) – Lightly Spicy/Non-Spicy. A seafood spaghetti with a combination of prawns, half-shelled mussels and squids in special white sauce with a slightly spicy taste or non-spicy for children.

Chicken Sausages and Turkey Ham Combo – RM 36.90. A combination of chicken sausages and turkey ham steak, served with tartar sauce, fries and fresh veggie. I find this combo set is definitely on the high site as it only has chicken sausaces and turkey ham. If the price is lower a bit, it would be much more attractive.

Garlic Lingguine, Set Lunch -RM 9.90, the smell of garlic was very strong and it was a bit oily. The garlic should be reduced some as it overwhelmed the taste of olive. This set is inclusive of:

  • Butter roll
  • Soup of the day,
  • Main course,
  • Dessert
  • Coffee/Tea

For those who prefer more variety of food and value for money, you can always try out their Sunday Buffet Lunch. The price 0f buffet for adult – RM25.90+, children – RM13.90+.

Besides the great dishes, there are also drinks that will quench your thirst.

Little Cottage Mocktail (Right hand side of second front roll), drinks (Non-Alcohol) Section – RM 7.90. Very fruity with orange taste. However, it might taste like cough syrup to some.

Homemade Sparkling Golden Lime Juice, Specialty Drinks (Non-Alcohol) Section (Second from left at the back roll) – RM 6.90. A “cooling” pure local time drink traditionally prepared by Grandma.

White Wine Cooler and Red Wine Cooler (First from left and second from left) – RM 9.90. A refreshing bubbly wine drink to open up taste buds before meal.

Little Cottage Fruit Shake, Specialty Drinks (Non-Alcohol) Section – RM 12.90. An all-time Favourite in this Tropica Climate. Taste very nice with a lot of fruits in the mixture.

Overall, the ambience at Little Cottage 1 and Little Cottage 2 are mostly the same. The service are equivalently same for both sites. The price is also the same. However, the food at Little Cottage 1 still has room for improvement in terms of freshness and ingredients proportion.
