Rasa Utara @ Berjaya Times Square, Kuala Lumpur

 was established  to highlight the beauty of  
northern Malaysian cuisine. 

with that intention,
Rasa Utara
forged ahead with the dream of expanding to the rest of

Starting of with the
Four King of Spices that should try if you're here,
(all may seem spicy, but its actually not and suitable for all to try)

Ayam Rendang Utara. - Herby
Its a traditional northern rendang recipe. 
The chicken was marinated with aromatic herbs and spices.
This dish's taste favor towards more to herbs over spice.
And they have really good thick gravy that you can mix and match with rice!

Ayam Goreng Cili Lagenda. - Spicy
I understand why its the best seller here.
Its a taste you don't get often in KL.
The chicken was deep fried first and topped it with
homemade blended chili paste that were slowly fried and stirred for few hours.
You would enjoy the crispy ness from the chicken along with the unique taste with it.

Kari Ikan Rasa Utara. - Soury
They used spanish mackeral fish which called ikan tenggiri in malaysia.
They cooked using mild curry powder with mustard seed cinnamon, finished with tamarind juice.
This is like a fusion of our local dhal that you eat in mamak, and curry.

Nari Rasa Utara- Sweety
Its a dish that serves ayam masak merah.
The chicken was marinated with spicy herbs and spices.
The taste is more towards sweetness that allows reasonable level of spiciness.
Ordering a set for this, you will have fish crackers, vegetables, and soup with potato fritter.

Apart from those above,
Totally recommend their signature desserts!
For people who love santan,
be happy,
because this place is very generous with their santan pouring!

Cendol Rasa Utara
Our local favorite! 
Made of nice shavings, coconut milk, Cendol (the ones in green), red beans 
and lots of sweet gula melaka syrup (palm sugar). 
Totally perfect dessert to end the dining experience here. 

Sago Gula Melaka.
Sago it's usually small tiny balls, but they put real good efforts putting it together.
And caramelized it with coconut milk & gula melaka!
The texture will be like a sticky-ish jelly.

Ubi Kayu Rasa Utara
I doubt u can find people making this in KL.
it's a simple dishes comes from boiled potato with
gula melaka and coconut milk.
But this dessert is kind of heavy after mains,
suggest to share it or order only the cendol or sago to try if you're almost bloated.

Desserts are my favorite!
