The ECLECTIC Lounge & Restaurant Main Entrance
As you should know by now that The Eclectic are formerly known as 68 Kelawei. We knew about that from Gourmet Garden few months ago and we did not have the chance to savour their foods until few weeks ago. lol
We brought our gal to Batu Ferringhi as she told us that it has been quite a long time that she did not go to beach. lol So we brought her there and have a look. After touring around, hubby spotted that The Eclectic is open. During that time, it was 5.30pm, so we parked our car at Rasa Sayang Car Park and walked opposite and have a look. And we were told that they are opened.
So we went in and have a seat. Then after few minutes, we were served by a waitress with a menu. Then....... we were told that they only doing "Happy Hours" now and the dinner start at 6.30pm. but they do served some finger foods.
OMG........6.30pm..... that's mean we need to wait for an hour. While we were discussing whether we want to go for their finger foods, the waitress came back and told us that they can cooked for us after she has checked with the chef, anythings from the menu except the roast part as they are still roasting it.
We were thrilled that they can make an exception for us. lol



Bar Area

Interior Setting of The Eclectic
Outside settings (Garden and main entrance)
Since we are the only customers, we walked around and take photos from the restaurant without disturbing anybody. lol
We ordered the following for our dinner:
Fruity Sangria
It is basically red wine with some fruits. And this is only half price(50% off) as it is charged under "Happy Hours". It is quite refreshing with a very hot day. lol

Bread

Butter
After we finished ordered our foods, we were served with bread and butter. And the bread is freshly baked. It is still hot while we are eating it. And it tastes nice.
Seafood Aglio Olio
This is my order for the day. The spaghetti is very tasty but too spicy for my gal. lol The squids, mussel and prawns are very fresh.



Brochette Chic
This is hubby order. And the chicken kebab tastes wonderful. The chicken is very tender and juicy. And it is served with rice, some vegetables and mashed potatoes. The mashed potatoes are too rich. lol

Chicken Nuggets
This is from kids menu and this is my gal choice. It is in fact a very big serve. lol The chicken nuggets taste not bad.

Sauce for Chicken Nuggets
After our main course we were actually very full. lol But when the waitress came and asked if we want any desserts........we ordered two....... lol

Mango Pudding
The mango pudding was not bad. But if they can serve the mango pudding chill then it would be perfect. lol
Crepe of Jack fruit
Hubby had this. And he loves it very much. Basically they blend the jack fruits and wrap inside the crepes and serve with ice-cream.
Overall..... we are satisfied with the service and foods. Will go back next time for their roast. lol

Cariso - dear....red wine cost RM11.00 (after discount) and seafood spaghetti aglio olio cost RM32.00. Since you don't take spicy foods, you better order other's spaghetti. The seafood spaghetti aglio olio tastes a bit spicy. :P

Lingzie - You are welcome! Yes the drinks and kebab tastes nice.

Criz Lai - Then will watch out for your reviews. lol
