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.
