Food: Bad Boy Cooks @ Oasis Square, Ara Damansara

Oasis Square is shaping up to be another hidden gem in terms of food. It took awhile to get ourselves over there too, and our first target was actually gonna be brunch at Mr. & Ms., but with queues there very obviously long from the outside, we detoured over to Bad Boy Cooks instead!

There's a real relaxed diner-esque atmosphere at Bad Boy Cooks. We like how there's plenty of glass to let the sun in, giving off a nice bright and cheery mood. It's the perfect sort of place for a Sunday hangout with the gang. And yes, we did see groups of students (who always know the latest places to visit!) and families coming here for brunch or late lunch. =)

The menu is quite standard, with the usual array of chicken, hot dogs, burgers, and pasta on demand. What really surprised us though were the prices. These days it's hard to find any new place that will let us have a decent meal for under 20 bucks. Even if you could, you'd probably be restricted to the salads and soups. But at BBC, 20 bucks surprisingly buys quite a lot of choices, and with some change to spare! =D

Meet the Super BB (RM 18) - a bun filled with cheese, grilled onions, chicken sausage beef bacon, onion rings, with a tomato-based Pomodoro sauce. I think we may have added on a fried egg for RM 1.

Digging in deeper...
We have to admit it sounded better on the menu than it actually tasted. The sausage was small and run-of-the-mill, while the bun was rather dry and the combination felt a bit dull, like the items were all just thrown together.

What impressed us instead was the Mad Nemo (RM 9), half the price of the Super BB above, but double in terms of taste. 

The Mad Nemo comes with the same uninspiring bun, but with three chunks of fish fillet.

The fish was very good, to our surprise. Deep-fried to perfection yet fresh and flaky within, it was also topped with a fiery mayo sauce that complemented it very well. I'm dying to just have the Fish & Chips the next time. 

Also fresh out of the fryer was the Fried Chicken (RM 10), a bread-crumbed golden brown chicken breast fillet. Something that was very simple, but executed well. The fries served with all three dishes were also very enjoyable, fluffy yet crisp.

Most if not all of the main courses can be upgraded to a set meal with just RM 1 for a drink - you can choose from either a Green Tea, Lime Juice or Lime Tea. Pretty good deal if you ask me.

When I see the name Bad Boy Cooks, I imagined food that was sinful, naughty, dangerous... And although food here is simple, I'd say Bad Boy Cooks lives up to its name for its fried food. The wait staff can be quite brusque and portions are small, but food-wise, it's admittedly a pleasant change from the complicated flavours we're so used to having these days... sometimes you just want to bring things down a couple of notches. (My wallet agrees too.) I wouldn't say you have to travel long & far just to give this a try, but worthwhile if you're in the area.
