With a tagline like “Over a 100 drinks, appetizers & snacks for RM 10 only!“, it wasn’t long before I found myself sitting here at TEN on Changkat flipping through the menu.
TEN on Changkat menu:
Getting anything for RM10 on Changkat Bukit Bintang is unheard of. Getting quality food and drinks for that price might even be considered absurb.
Well, not so anymore.
TEN on Changkat have just proved that it’s possible. My dinner on Christmas eve affirmed that food at TEN was solid for its price and portion. We savoured delicious pastas, lamb skewers, chicken rice and imbibed in drinks that were decently spiked with booze. All in all, a merry Christmas eve meal! 🙂
DRINKS: Left to right: Fruit punch – a lovely blend of fruits, Mojito – satisfactory pronounced mint and rum and lime with base of pineapple juice and Tequila Sunrise – discernible taste of tequila which made it’s well worth the price.
From the appetisers: Caesar Salad and Watermelon Salad. Both were decent though it was a bit of a let down for the watermelon salad. However if I were to compare this to say, Ben’s where a smaller portion of even more mediocre salad would set you back more than RM12++, then Ten’s Caesar warranted a thumbs up.
Caesar from TEN.
Caesar from Ben’s General Food Store.
Moving on to the snacks and tapas, the Roast Beef Sandwich caught my eye, together with Crab Cake with Mint Sauce, Lamb satay and the Calamari with Aioli.
3 fat crab cakes with fleshy crabmeat = satisfying! 🙂
Here’s the best Roast Beef Sandwich in town for RM10. Thick and generous slices of pink juicy beef with lip-smacking sauce sandwiched by toasted foccacia bread. Subway could learn a thing or 2 about making their roast beef subs here.
Calamari with Aioli. It’s amusing how simple a dish of fried calamari essentially is, but yet seemed so difficult to master.
I think this could do with less grease but nothing to fault for the texture of the squids.
Under Pizzas and Pasta, we ordered Hainanese Chicken Rice.
Wait, did I just hear you say “WTF”?
Oh come on, there’s Chicken Rice on the menu in an essentially Western restaurant serving tapas on Changkat Bukit Bintang. Allow me to satisfy my curiosity! 🙂
I’m sure you’re eager to know if it tasted good.
And I’m pleased to report that it does!
The tender, moist chicken even triumphs over most chicken rice stalls in KL and PJ. The 3 cardinal condiments were all well prepared; the ginger was pungent, the chilli mildly spicy followed with good quality soy sauce. The only let down was the rice. Add a sheen of moisture and a bit more fragrance and this would have been perfect.
Next we moved on to pasta and pizzas. Werner’s Favourite Linguini with Duck turned out to be my favourite too.
Olive oil, bacon, duck, herbs and chilli tossed with al dente pasta and the flavourful rendered oil clung to every millimeter of the linguini. If you’re ever at TEN’s, be sure to order this!
Ten Special Pizza.
This is my kind of pizza. Not too greasy with cheese balanced with a good tomato base. Throw on premiums like artichokes and serve it to me at RM10, I’ll happily return again and again!
And oh, I’ll add these 3 juicy skewers of tender marinated lamb each time I re-visit too. 🙂
Chicken cannelloni, stuffed fat with minced chicken and spinach. RM10. This could sustain a moderate appetite diner for a good few hours.
Skip the panna cotta though.
But make room for Andreas’ Special – A Dream in Chocolate (RM22.50). White chocolate milk cream, milky chocolate mousse, chocolate crumble, banana in passion fruit and pear in red wine. This is not RM10 (we ordered this from the ala-carte menu) but you won’t regret it.
Actually, you will. If you don’t order it! 😀
Upstairs of TEN is Dining in The Dark. IF you haven’t heard of it, do read about it HERE.
In TEN, you can also dine on the ala-carte menu from The Steakhouse (adjoining outlet with TEN & still owned by the same Werner empire) which offers tantalizing steak tartare, Mongolian Beef Goulash, Australian beef steaks and seafood galore of lobster and oysters.
Yes, I’ll definitely be heading to The Steakhouse soon. The beef is calling me! :DD
So if you’re on Changkat Bukit Bintang and seeking for good food in a cosy yet stylish venue, TEN is your best bet. Be sure to visit with friends since tapas sized dishes are ideally shared.
