I think Spring Gourmet and Dessert is a fairly new establishment at E-Gate. It is under the same management as Manila Place at Gurney Plaza. For those who do not know, I was told by the waitress that Manila Place is moving to the new wing at Gurney Plaza and is currently under renovation.
Spring serves some simple fare e.g. rice, congee, noodles and desserts. They were enjoying brisk business when I went for dinner on a week night. I ordered based on the waitress recommendations.
|Thai Style Fried Bee Hoon RM9.90|
The bee hoon was a tad bland and could do with more tom yam.
|Minced Pork and Sliced Abalone Congee RM8.90 (Teng Jai Juk / Boat Congee)|
I liked the congee texture which was smooth with ham, century egg, salted egg and supposedly sliced abalone.
|Red Bean Tang Yuan RM4.50|
|Double Boiled Green Apple and Pear RM4.90|
I actually favoured the Double Boiled Apple and Pear over the Red Bean Tang Yuan. The red bean dessert was a tad too sweet for my liking but I did like the black sesame dumpling.
The meal was nothing to shout about but there are other things on the menu which looked quite interesting so it warrants for a repeat visit. Nevertheless, it was a cozy place for catching up with my bestie that night.
