[Food Review] Thirty Seconds @ Bandar Sri Damansara

[Food Review] Thirty Seconds @ Bandar Sri Damansara
Kuala Lumpur, July 2015 - Last month, I was given a golden opportunity to discover a gem in food & beverage as invited by Food Ink. The place is named as Thirty Seconds.

Food Review session:
Date: 20th June 2015 (Saturday)
Time: 3.30pm to 6.00pm

About Thirty Seconds:
The Phua couple once has a dream of running their own café around 15 years ago. During that time, their children were too young and they have other business on hand. The time was just not right.

However, they have never given up their dreams before. Finally, at the end of the year 2014, their dream has become a reality. That is why you have Thirty Seconds in Bandar Sri Damansara now.

Mr Phua has intended to make this a family business. By involving the wife and the sons, from the kitchen to the bar, from the concept to the menu, everything is done by the Phua family themselves.

It is also thanks to Mrs Phua, you can get to enjoy a cup of coffee and some hearty breakfast as early as 8 in the morning. She is one of the most hardworking persons that decided to open early in order to accommodate the early crowd.

Why was the café named as Thirty Seconds? Well, it is the perfect duration of time to brew a cup of wonderful and fragrant espresso. That’s how they came out with the name, to serve only the best espresso for their customers.

As for the bar, the sons are the ones in charge. To show you how serious they are in this business, we have to let you know that one of the sons was in a worldwide latte art competition this year. It’s definitely not an easy task for him to compete against other 64 international contestants in that latte art competition.

Food Review Session:
It was a fun session to take part in the food review session under FoodInk. I have met many new friends who shared the same interest in food. (Well, who doesn’t love food anyway?)

And it’s great to meet back some of my old friends such as Bowie, Vania as well as the famous youtuber Dankhoo there. I seldom join blogging events past two months due to my superbly hectic posting in Medical department. Hopefully, I can take part in more blogging events again in the upcoming months since I have already passed that posting.

Either way, let’s jump into our main topic today, the FOOD!

Porridge? Nope. It’s the Sodium Oatmeal!
First off, we were served with porridge…I mean oatmeal! Well, don’t get me wrong, the Sodium Oatmeal is really an oatmeal which tastes and looks exactly like porridge. Oatmeal has been well-known to be a type of healthy food but it is not always loved by many.

Mrs Phua has creatively made the oatmeal looks like and feels like porridge in order to cater more people, the great piping hot oatmeal which was served with savory chicken and mushrooms.

Baked Eggs!
Next, we were served with Baked Eggs. The baked eggs in Thirty Seconds contains not just egg but also sausage, bell pepper, mushroom & chili flakes in delicious curve baked with mozzarella cheese. It was simply delicious!

Pasta Time!
After the oatmeal and baked eggs, we were given the opportunity to taste many different kind of pastas in this restaurant.

i)             Chicken Pesto Pasta
A type of spaghetti with chicken, tomatoes, onions and savory pesto sauce.

ii)            Aroi Seafood Pasta
Squid Ink Spagetti

iii)           Creamy Curry Pasta
Linguine with chicken chunks, chilli and onions ; topped with an exotic creamy curry finish. 

My favourite among these three pastas was the creamy curry pasta. I really loved the creamy curry taste. It was a great delight to my taste buds!

Fatty Rice A.K.A Nasi Lemak!
The next meal on our menu was Fatty Rice. We were wondering why it was called the Fatty Rice at first till we figured out it might be the direct translation from Malay words Nasi Lemak. (Mr and Mrs Phua didn’t explain to us though but I think there wouldn’t be any Malaysians who would not be able to recognize our favourite Malaysian food of all time, Nasi Lemak!)

The Fatty Rice in Thirty Seconds consists of a flavorful sambal and a piece of tasty fried chicken. It was a delicious meal!

Homemade Mushroom Soup & Garlic Bread!
Last but not least, we also tasted the homemade mushroom soup and garlic bread!

Demo on Latte Art! A Taste of the Signature C.O.2!
Remember that I mentioned that Mr Phua’s son was actually one of the contestant in the international Latte Art competition? Well, we were fortunate enough to witness his LIVE Demo on how he makes his espresso at the bar!

And wow, I also get the chance to taste the signature coffee C.O.2! The taste was really unique, it was bittersweet but soothing at the same time! Something really different from other coffee I have tasted before! You all should try it out!

Oh yeah, by the way, Mr Phua’s son also taught us the right way to sip the coffee! Maybe you should learn it from him too if he’s free to teach you next time!

Menu of the day:
1.         Sodium Oatmeal – RM9
2.         Baked Eggs – RM16
3.         Chicken Pesto Pasta – RM15
4.         Aroi Seafood Pasta – RM18
5.         Creamy Curry Chicken Pasta – RM13
6.         Fatty Rice – RM10
7.         Homemade Mushroom Soup & Garlic Bread – RM8

It was a really cozy and comfy place to hang out with friends. Plus, it serves good food!
Maybe you should give it a try next time if you are looking for a place to dine!
