The cooks at KetMoRee compose a symphony of curries while scoring an orchestra of appetizers for the restaurant's melodious menu. The staff delivers starter plates of the chili-crusted calamari, which hold tangles of deep-fried squid surrounded by a tarn of homemade plum-chili sauce ($9). Afterward, bite into brisk salads such as the crisp cucumber salad ($4) or the sprightly yum nua salad, which consists of onion and cilantro shrouded with sliced grilled beef tenderloin and spritzed with mild lime dressing ($8). Specialties include the gai yang, a grilled marinated half-chicken soaked in house-made sweet-and-sour sauce ($13) and the flaming broccoli, which combines beef sautéed with broccoli and jalapeño for an entrée more explosive than a summer blockbuster starring both Quaid brothers ($11). Refresh tastebuds with a chilled shot of fruit-infused vodka, available in flavors such as kiwi-mango or strawberry-pineapple ($7). KetMoRee's banquet room hosts upscale after-hours entertainment, furnishing full bar facilities, high definition TVs, and premium sound and lighting equipment.

Streets of London Pub harks back to traditional London pubs with ice-cold pints and ample coverage of rugby and soccer. On the menu of hearty English fare, fries in the witness-protection program call themselves "chips" and lay low under toppings such as gravy, cheese and beans, or cheese and bacon, or pair up with fish in a platter of classic fish 'n' chips. The bangers-and-mash meal allows thick, juicy sausages to snuggle up on a hill of mashed potatoes. Along with food, the pub dishes out events; diners can throw back Guinnesses during weekly pub quizzes, compete for everlasting fame during monthly bingo tournaments, or stop in for Pint Night to enjoy pints on the outdoor patio.
