Last Friday, my family was searching high and low for a place to have our lunch. Besides serving delicious food which will be cheap, we also want to have a very cozy ambiance to enjoy our lunch as well. That was when we stumbled upon Thyme All Day Dining in Hatten Place which ticked all our boxes (Good food, cheap price, cozy environment). Honestly I was really shocked the moment I arrived at the place. Everything looked so unbelievably classy! The receptionist and the waiter were already there waiting for us with arms wide open-speaking about top notch customer service. :)
Yours truly me enjoying the breathtaking view. :)
Ok time to order our food.
The waiters here are truly excellent!
So what shall we eat?
As we were relatively early, we got to choose where we wanted to have our lunch. The amiable waiter then ushered us to our table with a stunning sea-view. Nestled in a slightly secluded corner, we enjoyed sitting on the comfortable curvilinear sofa while selecting what we would have for our lunch. How much do you think you need to pay to have lunch in such high-class, posy environment? Do you know that each set would only cost RM14.90 each with bottomless Iced Lemon Tea? YES! Only RM14.90! I was so taken aback by the price tag that I ordered 5 different dishes. Besides we were really starving back then. LOL :D
Our lunch has arrived
The first dish that landed on our table was the Claypot Chicken Rice set which was served with salted fish. This dish was perfectly cooked as every grain of fragrant rice had been coated with the savory broth which really whetted our appetite. The tender, divine chicken meat, the ambrosial salted fish and the toothsome chunks of shitake mushrooms really dovetailed to tantalize our taste buds. Two thumbs up for this dish. Oh! Did I mention that the portion was very generous and two adults could actually enjoy this dish together.
Behold the ginormous Claypot Chicken Rice!
Can you spot the salted fish? :p
Every single bite was truly flavourful
I love it
My wife enjoyed this dish as well.
Our next dish was the Thyme Dunked Chicken Burger which was of course an in-house specialty at Thyme All Day Dining. In fact I would say that this is the must-try dish for all patrons as it was really packed with wholesome homemade goodness. This very presentable burger is laden with homemade pepper sauce, onions and of course homemade chicken patty! OMG~the flavorful chicken patty was so, so, so tender and succulent that I admit I wanted to order another one. So while our kids were biting away the crispy tapioca chips, yours truly me was feasting on the heavenly burger! I really wanted to have this again on our next visit!
Thyme Dunked Chicken Burger
Homemade goodness. The patty was so (OUUHHHH) tender and juicy!
I thought this is like one of the best burgers I have ever sunk my teeth into!
I am not a lamb person but our next dish the Lamb Briyani proved me wrong. The ghee rice which came with the Lamb Briyani was really soft, fluffy and delightful. Our juicy Lamb Briyani was very delectable and there was no hint of any gamy scent from our well-marinated mutton. I guess what made the briyani lamb here so tasty was the dainty gravy which was truly smooth and appetizing. I must admit that after having this flavorsome dish, I still felt very hungry despite my bloated stomach having said otherwise.
Up next was Briyani Lamb
The lamb was flawlessly marinated and cooked.
The ghee rice was astoundingly aromatic.
Do you wanna have a bite?
Those who love fish and curry will be glad to know that you can indulge in their Indian Fish Curry which is served with sauteed vegetables and steamed rice. Rest assured that the your rice will go really well with the rich curry which was a bit spicy and sweet at the same time-I know mine did. Thyme was really generous as they gave me at least 3 pieces of fish fillet to enjoy together with those equally juicy tomatoes, brinjal and okra aka lady finger. Definitely a must try for curry lover.
Curry lover rejoice!
Spicy and sweet
I love the vegetables that in the curry. :)
Last but not least, the highlight of our lunch was the Butter Chicken With Oatmeal. It was mighty close to choose between the Thyme Dunked Chicken Burger and this dish. We love this dish so much thanks to its luscious, creamy texture together with a hint of spiciness which was really a divine combination to give you that mouthgasmic sensation. I added it to my white fluffy rice and the rest was truly an unforgettable palatable journey in my mouth. Dayum! Will surely return for this dish.
Oatmeal with Butter Chicken
Without a doubt the best dish here.
Love the creamy butter texture and the tingling spiciness that comes with it
Truly lips smacking!
To top it off, you can enjoy BOTTOMLESS Iced Lemon Tea when you dine here. I actually ordered ours to be warm and of course what you wish is what you will get here thanks to the excellent service provided by the whole F&B team of Thyme. Honestly the setting of Thyme All Day Dining is probably the most beautiful one I have ever seen in Malacca. Everything looks so posh and classy here from the exquisite marble table to the artistic, comfy chair with armrest; From the spectacular view to the warm, soothing glow of bulbs which grace the whole place; Everything here looks really chic! You will definitely love the ambiance, trust me!
