The Library @ First Subang, Subang Jaya

This was my first trip to First Subang so we did a bit of a walkabout to check out the complex, it was a mid sized complex , looked very new and not that busy.

We decide to give The Library a try.  It was not a regular lunch hour, ~ 2pm, we were the only patron there . We were inside the complex and only saw a smallish door which was too small to be a main door so  we walked all over the place inside the complex and yet failed to find  a more entrance-ish kinda door, so we resort to slipped in thru the side door. where kegs of beers lined the walls. The deco  : shelves of books, kimono clad mannequin with a lampshade as its’ head, dozens of colourful Japanese fish kites/flags and large overhead TVs graced the restaurant – mainly showing football and  one was showing music videos. While the PA emitted  a wide variety  of songs ranging from Lady Gaga to Boney M to Thai and Malay songs.

The ala carte menu seemed pretty pricy, what attract us was the set meal, which was RM16.90 ++inclusive of drinks, main course plus appetizer.

For drinks , I had iced lemon tea- which was a very much watered down version and the others that had coke complained that these were flat.

For the appetizer : it was either  mushroom soup or salad. The mushroom soup was rather watery and had bits in it that I think must be mushroom. My choice of salad seemed  a better option as I got a big bowl of tomatoes, lettuce, cucumber and capsicum- the sauce was nothing great though- it looks like thousand island but taste like mustard ?

Fish and chips- I liked the thick chips , and as this was the fish dish to arrived and we were distraughtly hungry, everyone attacked this dish.  The 4 pieces of fish squares were deep fried, taste was pretty ok even without the chili sauce. Only complain was that they were a bit heavy handed with the salt on the chips.

Stuffed chicken leg – came with rolled up chicken meat , a blob of mashed potatoes and some steamed vegetable – carrots, French beans and cauliflower. The chicken meat were cut into sheets and then rolled, at the centre of the roll were some mushy softer stuff which tasted like liver- which some (like me) liked and some otherwise. I feel that these chicken roll were fried for a bit too long as the meat were overly dry and hard. The mash potatoes were creamy though.

Chicken Fajita – this started a discussion :  did the popiah come first or the Fajita…I dunno, do you ? Chicken cubes plus lettuce and some other chopped vegetables were rolled with the soft fajita and seasoned with some mayo. This was not too bad although the chicken could use with a little bit more of marinate as it was rather bland. This dish came with a generous portion of chips as well.

Overall, an ok meal and the servings were rather large.

There are a multitude of beers available by the kegs or off the tap. Live band are available on Friday and Saturdays.
