About two weeks ago, Proud Janny Restaurant & Cafe invited some media and food bloggers to their new premise in conjunction with the launch of the Slow Food campaign.
Proud Janny is the brainchild of Chef Ryan and his partner Shafiq Kong; together with their core team of Chef Janet and Chef Loke, this artisan restaurant serves up some innovative Asian fusion food that takes the norm out of your routine weekday lunch.

I love the raw, industrial look of the restaurant.
Our meet-up coincided with the Slow Food campaign, jointly organised by BTC Wholesale Centre and nourish! Magazine to introduce the concept of Slow Food. The campaign was held in the concourse of the Weld KL, directly in front of the entrance of Proud Janny. Crowds packed the event, checking out the interesting booths and product promotions by the various suppliers.

Ever since I attended the media preview on organic food back in December 2012, hubby and I have been trying to incorporate a more organic diet into our lifestyle. And so when hubby spied the Opika booth displaying various food items that were in our usual diet, he almost bought up the entire stall! I had to tell the booth staff (only half in jest) not to sell him anymore items LOL.

Chef Ryan and his team served us several of their signature Peranakan dishes:
|Appetizer : Crystal Bread with Salmon and Mango Kerabu|
|A unique appetizer that totally tantalizes the tastebuds|
|Chef Loke explaining how the crystal bread is made|
|Nasi Ulam with Ayam Percik|
|Love the rich and pungent percik sauce|
|Sunkiss rice with tamarind prawns, chicken lobak, sambal hebe|
|Herbs baked free-range chicken leg|
Some of Proud Janny's popular cakes:
|Piedmont Chocolate and Hazelnut|
|Dark Chocolate cake|
|And their signature item - Salted Caramel Through and Through.|
This one was awesome - you just have to try it to know what I mean.
