Hi …. back again with another new article for another new makan place !

Not many of my friends know where NorthPoint MidValley is located … although I did specifically mention the word “MidValley”. Situated at the north entrance to Mid Valley City, Northpoint comprises two towers of suites and residences. Expanding on the SOHO concept ( small office home office ), Northpoint offers a city lifestyle where you can combine home and office in a single building. Cool or what !

Now that you know where NorthPoint is …. let’s move on to the next topic. There are 4 restaurants in Northpoint, namely RedGinger, Isthmus, Ninja Jones and finally Izzi’s (did I get that spelt correctly?). I plan to write about them … yeap, all 4 of ’em and I shall begin with RedGinger.

Located just next to the pedestrian bridge that bridges from MidValley to Nortpoint, RedGinger is pretty strategically located … because once you walk over from MidValley to Northpoint, there is no way you can miss the restaurant.

As you walk in to the restaurant, you can’t miss the beautifully crafted logo of RedGinger at the entrance … and the decor is an interesting blend of contemporary light fixtures, and old chinas, a huge counter bar, and touches of flowers to soften the environment. Yellow lights soften the ambiance.

We started our dinner with some starters … common street food but exclusively prepared. That’s also because except for the Chicken Lobak, the rest of them food looks different from the ones you get outside. The “Yau Char Kwai” for example … are delicious thin crispy strips dressed with mayonnaise … instead the the “double-barrel” rolls of flour … and the Otak-Otak comes in packets.

Huge packets ! I think the Otak-Otak alone could satisfy my dinner pang. But of course, with 20+ people sharing the food … it’s just nice.

Then comes the main courses … you should’ve seen how we paraded the food ! The dishes were treated like models in studio shoots minus the stage lightings though…

I manage to take some shots but not all …. gosh, it’s difficult to have a good balance to ..

  • Enjoying the sight of the food
  • Taking photographs of the food
  • Eating the food
  • And actually enjoying the food

But like I said, a man’s got to do what a man’s got to do. I went on shooting away, missing some of the dishes along the way though. Well, here are the dishes that I did enjoy … the Ipoh Hor Fun, the special Kam Heong Kuay Teow, Dry Curry Sang Har Noodle and also the Fried Rice. And my favourite …. the Ipoh Hor Fun is the best.

I’ll let the photos do the talking here.

And here are some dishes that are equally mouth-watering … the Black Pepper Beef and Steamed Chicken with Wine and Salt. Again .. I will not elaborate further on the description of the dishes but … let’s just say it’s a must-try for all !

    unfortunately, Red Ginger (both MV & Damansara outlets) have closed down already. Someone else has taken over their MV outlet.
