[Non-Halal] Old School @ The School, Jaya One

16:52 Unknown 44 Comments

When people found out that my office is in Jaya One, I'll always get the same respond - "So nice! They have so many eateries there!"
 
Frankly, if you are here 5 days a week, it will eventually became quite difficult to think of something to eat inside the area. So, my friends and I were quite excited when Old School finally opened for business!
 

They are an Asian-fusion restaurant that serves variety of pork dishes, ranging from Nasi Lemak with Grill Pork Chop to Pork Ribs.

The Classroom
The Canteen
The place is really spacious and bright; they have 2 dining area for you to choose from - The Classroom or The Canteen. In keeping their "old school" concept, their waitresses are dressed in school uniform - though not the usual Malaysia school uniform.
 
 
Very nostalgic notebook! That's their menu, and all the dishes in the menu were handwritten.
 
Honey Pork with Rice
Joe had the Honey Pork with Rice, and the pork was surprisingly tender and nicely glazed with honey. If my memory serves me right, it was priced at RM 14.90.
 
Nasi Lemak with Grilled Pork Chop (RM 15.90)
The Nasi Lemak with Grilled Pork Chop (RM 15.90) was not too bad. The coconut rice was fragrant and the marinated pork chop was tender.

Hot White Coffee
My only wish was the coffee would be less sweet! The total bill from my first visit came to about RM 41, including my hot coffee and Joe's cold coffee.

I actually went back the next day with my friends, and this time I tried something different.


Spicy Fried Rice (RM 10.90)
Instead of pork dishes, I decided to try out their fried rice! I was shocked when they served my Spicy Fried Rice (RM 10.90) - the portion was too big, at least for me. So, if you are a small eater like me, you may want to consider sharing the fried rice. I really liked this dish a lot - flavourful with a hint of heat from the chili padi, and the prawns were perfectly cooked.

Overall, the food was quite good, and the waitresses were very friendly. On down side, I think the pricing is a little on the high side; especially when they do not serve any set meal at the moment. I'm not too sure if they'll be serving any set meal, but I sure hope they do!

They have 2 branches - Puchong and Jaya One.

  9. the place looks pretty nice if it's considered an eatery rather than a cafe, which i reckon so, for the food is pretty 'eatery-ish'. looks pretty good though!
