Latest Recipe

Debs took mum out for her birthday here and kindly made room for me to join in which I was thankful for cos the food was good. But it would be a meal I would regret cos I had to endure weeks of bowel twisting and tummy aches after that. Too much of a good things should be monitored. What I enjoyed from most buffets is the salad bar spread. If its good,I'm happy. And if they have an ever better dessert spread,then WHOOPEE! This particular joint had a good sushi bar which I shamelessly left my mark on,visiting it after each empty plate.

Gorging on sashimi all sorts is a thing of joy!

Their tomato aioli.
Squid ink pasta in tomato sauce.

Stir fry chicken,prawns and squid in cream was sooo sinfully delicious to the last bite.
Le Meridien and the Hilton joint? at Midvalley boasts the best dessert table I've ever enjoyed. You can see I had a ball creating my own dessert art. Waffles oozing with butter and maple syrup with ice cream,fudge and choc stick with nut sprinkles is sooo decadent and heavenly.

Their other options,I wasn't so crazy about...just for my own creations of delight.

Cafe Pat Kin Pat Sun in Cheras

I'm so glad Barb introduced me to this new place in Cheras that's different from our regular food dives. Def an improvement on the usual grub we get at Cyberjaya.
So far we've done 2 visits,but their huge array of food choices prompted me to make this an eating target till I've covered a fair amount of ground going through their menu.
What we had so far.....

Crispy Crabstick roll from their Dim Sum menu. Yeap, they have a Dim Sum menu along with their already full ala carte and set menu. Sooo many things to try, so little tummy space.

Steamed Bean Curd Rolls. Most of their dim sum items range about RM3.80 a dish so it allows us to try more just one or 2.
Their Har Gow was better on our second visit. More moist and juicy compared to the dry and hard centre from the first batch.
Crispy fried rice for RM8.50. So good,we'll def order this again and again and again.
Their Dory fish fillet with house special sauce which is basically garlic cream with herbs and I suspect,cheese. Sooooo sinful and tender,juicy and succulent,we now order it everytime we pay the cafe a visit. Oh,and RM12.90 per order.
I love mopping up the sauce with my hot bun.

Viv recently treated me to a Jap dinner last Saturday at a quaint looking little Jap restaurant called Zakura something...sorry. Viv,can you help me with this? Decent chow at decent pricing.
Thank you so much,Viv! I won't go greedy with the Tempura ice cream ever again.
Vivs tempura sashimi and unagi bento.

My tempura sashimi bento.

The tempura batter had yam and chocolate flavored ice cream inside. Never again...too heavy a bite to handle after the bento.

A typical Chinese dinner at PJ Old Town.

Crispy bass in a bed of soy sauce.

Pork ribs. No dinner is complete without some prokers on the side.
Stir fried long beans.
I love this beancurd stew dish. Oh so good!
Black pepper beef strips.
The Pièce de résistance...Braised Duck! I'm in love!

Old Town Kopitiam chain

Some small in portions, but quite tasty enough nontheless. Though it can burn the wallet for these standard dishes. I'll usually order their ipoh hor fun with a side of omega eggs or their nasi lemak with crispy chicken or their curry chicken with rice for a quite satisfying to my tum meal. I won't be ordering their eggs on toast anytime soon though their kaya with butter and toast is really awesome with a cuppa ice milo. Yum! I dig having a side of curry puffs too to lap up the curry chicken gravy.

Lunch at Padi

My order of Thai Style Crispy Chicken Rice with and egg on top. If I'm not mistaken, it costs about RM6.90 or was it RM7.90 each ? Ah well....anyways, it all looks appetizing and pretty, but the overall taste came out really bland than what it actually looks like. Most of the stuff I've eaten there so far is kinda on the bland side,save for their dried fish fried rice. Their fries are pretty decent and good but I wouldn't order the onion rings again, good as it was due to the really small portions served. I've as yet to test more of their menu options so we'll see how that fares.
Cheers folks and happy chowing!

Breakfast and Dessert

Wish I had more spare time to do food painting in my room. But here's a snippet from one of my sketch journals. Above is a breakfast plate consisting of philly cheese wrapped in lox with caviar, slices red peppers, philly cheese topped with more caviar and a variety of fruits on the side.Oh the fond memories of such an exquisite and very sinful breakfast.
Below are some of the extremely good selections from Bakerzin....ooooo, I'm still drooling over their green tea slice which I highly recommend to you all. Well worth every penny to every bite.

Venny's Restaurant

Went there last Saturday morning for breakfast prior to our expected attendance to the PEKOMIK comic convention at PWTC. This was one of the many side cafes/coffeeshops located just outside of Low Yat Plaza, a dying tech supply building in the heart of KL.The stall owners here are still a lively bunch though. One cannot emphasize enough the amount of boundless energy that exudes from these money making enthusiasts as they bawl out for customers to come patronize their stalls while ignoring their competitors next door. Customers literally park right up to the curb lawlessly irregardless of road regulations while making their way to tank up their morning bellies. Check out the wide range of freshly cooked chow all ready for lunch time even though the clock still chimes 10.30 am. But that didn't seem to matter much as customers don't discriminate much between lunch and breakfast meals as they proceed to devour down the long array of lunch dishes along with their breakfast selection and so on.
I chose to sample their Pan Mee with a side of Iced Milo. Everything about their cooking seems to run on the light side. Both Prawn Mee and Pan Mee broth were neither bursting with thickness in the soup consistency or exuberating with flavor. Personally, I think if you'd just add a nice chunky pork bone into the boiling pot,the soup would've come out 10 times better,if cooked overnight that is.

Still it was a very decent and satisfying meal for the morning's adventure and served as an adequate source of energy filling station before we continued on with our journey.

Lunch time at Mumbo Jumbo

One of the few places to grab a decent salad in Cyberville. Another good place would be at the Pizzaria Italiano,both located at the Street Mall. We had this chow at Mumbo Jumbo. Quite new with decent chow with decent prices. I recommend grabbing the chicken masala sandwich. A good place to grab a healthy lunch. They also have a breakfast set included in their menu with a nice dessert list from waffles to ice cream. Nice! Go for their set menu for lunch at an affordable rate from RM 10 onwards.
