When it comes to food in Shah Alam, I'm often at a lost on what to eat unless I settle for Mamak food. Before we found Eat Work Shop, this place known as Big Plate was the default location whenever we wanted to eat a decent meal. The portions of the food served here is huge hence the reference to a big plate. There's also a copycat version of this place in Section 9, Shah Alam called Big Portion which we have heard about but not tried.
Like all western food places, this place serves fruit juices in huge glasses to quench your thirst. For their soups, they serve them in a bread bowl which reminds me of how they serve the famous clam chowder in San Francisco. It used to be a new thing in town but nowadays it's been copied by most of the cafes. The tricky part is drinking the soup and eating the bread together to make sure the bowl does not break apart.
Splashie Boy had the Chicken Piccata (RM19+) that is essential slices of chicken coated in a flour batter that is then pan fried. It's served on top of spaghetti with a creamy sauce and lots of vegetables. I love their side items they serve as it's pretty unique. For this dish, I always steal the Cauliflower Polonaise from his plate as I love the cauliflower served with a topping of hard boiled eggs and bread crumbs.
This place is great for salad lovers as they serve yummy salads versus the usual cucumber, tomato and lettuce combinations most places resort to. My Kambing Banting (RM20.50+) was so full of salad leaves, it made up for the fact I was eating cholestrol laden lamb shoulder. They also served potato salad and a piece of garlic bread. Besides these items, they have a few pasta dishes and interesting named dishes after places in Selangor like Ayam Shah Alam, Steak Kelang, Chicken Subang, Ikan Morib and etc.
