Daorae, Sri Hartamas/Mont Kiara

From Min Park.
From my sketch journal.
Min Park introduced me to a fantastic Korean BBQ joint which is situated right above a Korean grocer. Awesome! Fantastic ambiance with fantastic food and great company. Lovely! Sam Gub Sal/ Pork was ordered and the tiny platters of sides starts pouring onto our table.

See the lovely cuts sizzling on the iron grill pit. I appreciate that they regard garlic and onions as mandatory ingredients in this meal.
Kimchi cabbage is a must have.
Their soup tastes similar to Japanese miso only spicier.
Min working the chops for the BBQ.

I love this side dish of spicy spring onions. Though quite a huge meal, I still felt very healthy after partaking it cos apart from the pork,everything else was rather light.

Our kimchi pizza. Light,fluffy and I totally dig the flavors with the onions innit.

Tasteful decor. There's actually another floor above us which has private dining rooms for customers to enjoy without the hustle and bustle and loud chatter experienced on our level.

Dim Sum @ Taman Megah Dec 2008

If you're hankering for Dim Sum, I don't have to look any further than my ol' neighborhood's Dim Sum shop which has been there since I can remember. Well prepared and with a wide variety to choose from. Congees, siew mais,har gows, loh mai kais, Hong Kong Chee Cheong Funs, Crispy wan tons, Fried carrot cakes ...the selection is endless! Pity I can only gorge so much in one sitting for breakfast.

Dessert at Svensens @ ss2

Chan Ghee refused me the chance to treat him dinner at Sugimoto but gave in when dessert was suggested. We had their sizzling Apple Crumble with syrup,butter and ice cream. So very good!

Delicious at Bangsar Village

I treated my partner in food crime,Viv, to a late tea cum dinner at Bangsar V's Delicious. All the food we've ordered there has lived up to that title, I am pleased to say. And thankfully after past experience, we have wisely opted to share our dishes together enabling us to order more for our enjoyment. We ordered their spaghetti cabonara.
Huge portions coupled with good flavors,good ingredients and tasteful preps makes it all worth the price one pays for it. I like the chef's idea of putting a single basil leaf on top to add contrast in color to the plate. And I appreciate the flavorful crunch it adds to the bite.

My order of Ceaser Salad. So so good! I will def order it again and again whenever I'm dining here. First I'm having my salad with the egg cooked as a separate entity and not mixed in with the salad dressing as I anticipated. But most prob another egg has been added to the dressing already. thin anchovies strewn along the top of the pile with huge chunks of bacon and sliced of toasted baguettes subsidising the usual croutons makes for a very very good Seaser indeed. I just love this dish.

My Vanilla Milkshake over Viv's Mint Iced Lemon Tea. I go for Creamy,baby!

And an order of their Antipasti Platter for pure decadence. Always a winner at the table. Duck/Chicken? liver pate with melted butter on top, with a side of grilled tomatoes in olive oil dressing (my fave), grilled mushrooms, grilled whole garlic clove(another fave of mine), puree egglant, grilled asparagus and grilled squid. So so very good with a basket of toast baguette slices. We had to order another basket to balance the mouthfuls of antipastis.

Delicious comes very highly recommended as it is affordable with very well prepared dishes to please anyone.
