Star Cafe, Taman Desa

Looking for a after-work hangout place? Or a place to chill while listening to live bands, with a drink in hand?
Star Cafe would be the place to be. Star Cafe is a cafe-bistro which occupies a two-storey shop lot here at Taman Desa for 19 years! Star Cafe also has a few more branches across Klang Valley (TTDI, Plaza Damas & OUG).
Tucked away from the busy Old Klang Road , The Star Cafe's branch in Taman Desa has ample  parking space (& they even have private parking bays for Star Cafe's patrons!), which is really a plus plus brownies point. One can choose to dine in & chill at the quiet outdoor el fresco area, or inside where live bands will delight your ears & warm up the atmosphere.
At Star Cafe, there will be different live bands playing different genres musics EVERYDAY from 9pm onwards!

We were there on a Thursday night & we really enjoyed the performances. Most of the songs played were classic oldies rock which was truly nostalgic. It was nice to see old people getting on their foot dancing & moving up to the stage singing with the bands :P

The different bands performing at Star Cafe Taman Desa from Monday-Sunday. Time to time Star Cafe will have special band guest performing so do stay tune to their FB page for the latest update!

All the chef here have many years of experiences in the F&B industry. You can get a peep on what's cooking in the kitchen by looking through the glass window that separates the kitchen and the dining area!
Fresh Salmon Cerviche RM22
Fresh Salmon Sashimi slices sprinkled with Asian Herbs & finished off with a Citrus Dressing.
A great dish to kick-start our meal, with the sourish citrus dressing that delivers a kick of spiciness. Warning: Super Spicy
Tofu Salad RM18
Silken Tofu & crispy Wonton skin on a bed of Salad Leaves. Served with Peanut & Japanese Sesame Dressing. A Japanese-inspired salad. I love how the contrasting texture of the crispy wonton skin & soft tofu come together in this dish.
Beef Wellington RM59
Juicy Beef Fillet smoothered in a blend of Mushrooms and wrapped in a Puff Pastry. Served with Red Wine Sauce & a side of Steamed Vegetables and Baked Potato

The Beef Wellington is definitely my favourite dish here at Star Cafe. the juicy & succulent beef slices wrapped in the buttery, flaky pastry puff definitely won my heart & taste buds.
Slow-Cooked Lamb Shank RM39
Lamb shank cooked for 4 hours in a red wine marinate. Served with Creamy Mashed Potatoes & Steamed Vegetables.
Hainanese Lamb Shank RM42
Tender Lamb Shank in a traditional Chinese Roots & Wolfberry soup. Served with white rice. Definitely something you can't fund elsewhere. The lamb shank here was also really tender, and the soup tasted really homey. It tasted like a traditional Chinese Herbal Soup (with a huuuuuge lamb shank!)
Chicken Deminoff RM26
Quater Chicken cooked in a cream sauce.
Otak-Otak Snapper FIllet RM32
Traditional Malaysian Otak-Otak Spiced Coconut marinate fillets of Snapper served with Rice
Star Pork Knuckle RM65
Crispy Pork Knuckle served with Sauerkraut & Potato Wedges

Spring Chicken
Fried Half Chicken Served with a side of Fries & Vegetables.
Oyster Fried Kway Teow RM20
Charred wok-fried flat rice noodle with oyster fried in eggs and tiger prawns.
The Oyster Fried Kway Teow was surprisingly quite decent and it was loaded with generous amount of prawns!
Mantis Prawn Yee Mee
The huuuuge size of the mantis prawn!
 Bittergroud Fried Glass Noodles RM18
Glass Noodles fried with generous amount of Prawns, Squid, Bitter Gourd & Egg. Not really a big fan of bitter gourd hence I can't comment much on this dish.
Curry Mee
We ended our meal with a sweet note with their homemade Sarawak Layer Cake. Star Cafe has a Sarawakian pastry chef who made these dainty layer cake from scratch here!

Verdict: Decent fusion food generous in portion! Lively performances by live bands at night not to be missed.
