The Maxis Om Nom Nom Race - Location #1 : Strawberry Fields Cafe

SO ! Our team, the Foodologists consisting of Khai Sim, Louis, Yi Ching and I have just arrived at the first location, the Strawberry Fields in OldTown Petaling Jaya in first place! Let’s hope we get to keep our lead at the remaining 4 restaurants!


Conveniently located in front of the MPPJ Building, The Strawberry Fields Café serves a variety of local dishes such as Asam Laksa (RM6.95), Tomyam Soup Meehoon (RM6.95) and even seafood like the Butter Cream Prawn Rice (RM9.20).


We were served three dishes to sample in total, the first:


Strawberry Fields Fried Mee RM 8.10
The springy thin noodles are a perfect expression of our local flavors, with ingredients such as fresh prawns, carrots and onions. It tastes like home cooked food which is something that most of us love. The flavors in the dish go together very well and the ingredients complement one another just as well.


Thai Pineapple Fried Rice RM8.20
The Thai Pineapple Fried Rice is as we expected: tangy, full of fresh seafood and comes served in a pineapple as it’s name clearly suggests! It does taste a lot like most Thai dishes I have had in Thailand before which is a very good thing. However, it isn’t very spicy. Probably the dish was tweaked a little to suit the tastebuds of us Malaysians.

Yi Ching devouring em D:

Both Main Dishes were served in hearty portions and were appropriately priced. Presentation wise, they were both served in a very eye-catching manner. For example, the Thai Pineapple Fried rice was served in a makeshift pineapple ‘bowl’ made out of an actual pineapple. As for the Strawberry Fields Fried Mee, it was served with vegetables that added colour to the otherwise plain looking dish.


Sagu Gula Melaka RM4.00
After tasting 2 main meals, time for desert! For desert lovers out there, you just got to come and try this. Just sit around chilling and indulge in the Sagu Gula Melaka. It’s sweet with good authentic gula melaka taste.



The Strawberry Fields Cafe is decorated with various tokens of the owner’s past, from Elvis,
