Tasek / Kg. Tawas is an area that we seldom go for a meal. We usually just zoom past. The only place that I had lunch prior to dining at Cordon Bleu was at Kok Thai Restaurant, which is incidentally located directly opposite.
Cordon Bleu was suggested to us by Google, actually. Opened about four years ago under new ownership, it serves a fusion of local-style Western chops (choice of chicken, pork or fish), that are flooded with lip-smacking gravy. If you like your plate “banjir-ed”, this is the place to try.
Having dined at so many different eateries over the years, it’s difficult to come by one that is this generous with its gravy. The photographs may not be striking, but the taste, super yummy.
One feature about Cordon Bleu that stands out is its entrance as well as its table layout. I am reminded of tiny Hong Kong eateries where space is scarce.
Slight discomfort and stuffiness aside, it is worth dining at Cordon Bleu. Just look at its portion, and I am referring to the slab of meat, rather than the volume of gravy. Haha!
Price for chops with large serving of rice go from only RM10 up to RM13, while full set chop sets that come with sausages, ham and egg are priced from RM17 to RM20. The advantage of going for full sets, besides its large serving, is that diners only need to top up RM0.80 for any beverage. Otherwise, it’s RM0.50 for a glass of plain water.
Cordon Bleu is well known for its burgers but that will have to wait for another trip to the area. Let’s see when that will be.
