Modesto's Capital Square @ CapSquare, KL

When Modesto's is mentioned, I automatically think of a posh place with expensive Western / Italian meals, therefore I was quite surprised when I found out they have a different lunch menu for Asian fare apart from the standard set lunch menu comprising Western meals. The Asian lunch menu is fairly affordable too for lunching executives.

Complimentary starter
The complimentary crackers and salsa are very yummy - I can't get enough of them =)

Cantonese Fried Kuey Teow with Chicken (RM 9.90)
The Cantonese Fried Kuey Teow comes steaming hot with lots of wok hei even though it's a gravy-based dish. The chicken pieces are very tender and smooth and the noodles absorb the flavours of the gravy fully. The ginger and scallion adds to the aroma of the gravy.

Stir Fried Glass Noodles with Beef (RM 9.90)
You can smell the wok hei the moment the plate of Stir Fried Glass Noodles with Beef is placed on the table. The glass noodles are springy and savoury, the bean sprouts crunchy and fresh and the huge beef pieces tender and moist. A large sprinkling of deep fried dried shrimps further adds to the flavour of the dish. Very very good.

Nasi Goreng Kampung (RM 10)
The Nasi Goreng Kampung tastes slightly different compared to those sold at mamak stalls as it seems to be covered in dark soya sauce rather than belacan paste but is still good nonetheless. The runny sunny side up and extremely crunchy deep fried anchovies are a good accompaniment to the fried rice. The crackers are also very yummy.

Fried Rice with Chicken and Shrimp (RM 10)
This dish of fried rice with chicken and shrimp is also yummy and flavourful. It also comes with a runny sunny side up and crunchy crackers.

Hokkien Mee (RM 9.90)

The Hokkien Mee looked very real and authentic but sadly it lacked the wok hei. Otherwise it is pretty good for a halal version.

There are hits and misses but all in all, Modesto's is a good place for lunch if ever you pass by Capsquare (there are limited food choices at that area =.=). Not sure if other outlets have the same promo.
