Spring Golden famous for both their Chicken Rice in Shah Alam and also of course their Char Siew.  Chicken is not too bad and I must say this is the better chicken rice I have eaten so far (note that I rarely eat Chicken rice)

Just loooooook at that. Caramelize 360 turn over inside out and the fats I got was even but just melt in my mouth. I wanted to order another portion but no more as the customer behind me got the last bits of it. Love the burnt edges too as it just stick right in your teeth.

Their homemade chilli is da bomb too. I ended up have 2 plates of chili for both my char siew and chicken.

If you are looking for char siew in Shah Alam, be sure not to miss this shop out also. I would definitely come back to makan if passing by this area again by ordering 2 pax portion charsiew for myself only. If you say best char siew in KL, then would doubt so.

During pandemic like this, and there are shops like this open, I am certainly impress with their courage. It was a random walk in as were hunting food in Sri Petaling and found this new shop that just open with their special price. Eat all you can charcoal bbq buffet at RM 29.90 and with drinks is RM 34.90 as their opening special and was a too good bargain in this Meet-ing Point at Sri Petaling. What can you expect. Support new businesses , support Lokal.

bukit jalil

When we first stumble upon them, they were just 2 days old . Variety of meat that they offer is pretty decent and just a challenge on how you plan to fill up your stomach! Fresh meat that is prep on that day is ready to serve to you to the table. Pick your selection and get it ready to grill. Pork Belly, pork patty & curry beef was our favourite for the night.

With their special bbq pit, it is not as smokey as what we perceive. Could be also only 5 tables were on that day.

meet-ing point (8)

We were happy with the meat selection and marination werent the best but acceptable for the price we are paying.

meet-ing point (9)

We tried out some of their snacks too.

variety of sauce were offered as they are still on R&D stages.

eat all you can buffet

the owner is pretty open as they ask about our opinion about their food and we gave them feedback accordingly. Of course they are more than happy to listen to most of us and looking forward to further improve their marination base on neighborhood feedback.

meet-ing point

Be kind to business owners, as it is not easy to spend money and run a business in this pandemic. Instead of criticize, why not give them a straight feedback where the owner can improve and we can come back an enjoy again. For the price we are paying with eat all you can bbq in KL, I have no complain at all. Just gave them some feedback what should be add on and also what could be further improve. For 2 days in operation, I certainly hope that they can thrive long for their business.

On and off, I keep thinking where to eat whenever go to Uptown Damansara, and drove pass by this shop Auntie Sim Kitchen uncountable times yet did not make a move to go in till recently. Instantly this place had turn to one of a must go shop in Uptown Damansara if you are looking for Hong Kong stir-fried cuisine.

Auntie Sim Kitchen

I must say, it is a perfect spot for family gathering if you are looking for Hong Kong dai chow in PJ. Train by a chef from Hong Kong and even some of the signature ingredients are flown all the way from Hong Kong.

Hong kong food in pj

Auntie Sim Kitchen (3)

As to preserve heritage and a twist of her own, this is a must have starter. Traditional Teochew Prawn Balls @ RM 35. It is a bit pricy but generous with ingredients. A bag full with mince meat, not too salty yet crispy on the outside with the skin and in it I think do have some water chestnut and also chewy juicy prawns. Perfecto!

Auntie Sim Kitchen (4)

Next is a simple veggie soup, with its broth are sweet and perfect.

Auntie Sim Kitchen (7)

Stir fried Angus Beef with Pepers. Very simple yet perfect in taste. Hint of grind black pepper that did not over power the meat yet the beef was cook to perfection. Juicy and tender that it is medium.

black bean fish

This is one of the dish that instantly hit my palate notes that makes them pretty authentic Hong Kong Dai Chow. Claypot Braised Tilapia with Bittergourd @ RM38 upwards. Not many eateries in KL are able to fried a perfect bitter gourd dish especially topped with black beans. One of the ingredients is imported from Hong Kong that makes it quite authentic.

Anything with their claypot bitter-gourd, I guess should give it a try. I am going to come back for their alternative.

fried duck

To me another local classic is their fried Duck topped with a twist of chef special gravy. Crispy skin, juicy meat and gravy to smooth gravy to tone the flavour down is indeed pretty spot on!

sang har noodle

ahhh, highlight of the night is this : Dry-fried Yee Mee with Freshwater Prawns

Auntie Sim Kitchen (9)

This is not the ordinary shang har noodle (so some of you call it that way). as this noodle was serve, the smell of the big head prawn just trail on the air. Makes u instantly hungry. Looking at the springy noodle just makes me want to instantly dig in!

Auntie Sim Kitchen (10)

Very fresh prawns that had been fried to perfection. Juicy meat that sips with the soy sauce to my liking.  I am in love with the noodle texture as it is one of the best reminiscence to Hong Kong food. Then only found out that it is also imported from Hong Kong. No wonder the springy texture, boink boink and the longish of noodle is just there.

Auntie Sim Kitchen (11)

avocado

To end the meal, we try their evergreen signature which is a must-try is their Avocado in Thai King Coconut @ RM 16. Silky smooth blend avocado puree which is quite prominent in terms of taste that did not give you the raw skin taste yet a hint fragrant of coconut taste is there.  – Recommended!

Auntie Sim Kitchen (13)

A perfect place for Hong Kong Dai chow food in PJ. I certainly will come back to try some of their other dishes.

A new hidden bar have surfaced up in KL. With your least expected area as The Curiousity Iron River 好奇鐵河  is operating at Chan Sow Lin, KL. Indeed a hidden gem for the area. If you are a person who loves to be in a second-hand kind of furniture shop, run-down ambience as I called it a rustic heritage building, then this place is a place that you would want to be.

We came here because of Petai Pizza and little did we discover further its a hidden bar. This place has great classic furniture pieces is also because the owner operates a second hand antique furniture shop.

bar in kl

Discovering this place would be a pain in the ass as waze will bring you to a location here you cant park your car. Best is to park your car at Jalan Satu and walk in this bright one-way street alley.

Looking at some blog posting, they have definitely light up the whole place to a new level. More vibrant and captivating. A neon blue sign board and a deck up Avatar kind lighting garden.

classic bar

This is one of my favourite walkway. I felt that would be a nice instagramable spot.

hidden bar in kl

little did we know that it is actually a nice bar place. We were here quite early, as bout 7.30pm for dinner. Love the ambience of this place as it is like a modern touch up of a Chinese 60’s herbs medicine shop.

We sat in this little room that is filled with unique furniture pieces.

Since we are here, trying out one of my favourite Negroni Cocktail @ RM 33. For this, I think it is more on the sweeter side. Not really my kind of taste or compare to the usuals that I usually have.

Smoked Duck Spaghetti – a better dish for the night compared to the rest.

petai pizza

Petai Pizza is indeed done nicely and the taste of petai is a bit prominent. Just that the dough need some improvement.

Nothing to shout out for the mushroom truffle pizza.

I would suggest to come here for drinks and enjoy the ambiance.

Indeed a perfect place to hang out as after 9pm, the disco ball is turn on. Totally switched the ambience. They also turn on classic Shangainese songs and also the 60’s and 70’s English songs. Indeed perfect music to be in. Do not mind to come back for round of gathering with friends here.

the curiousity iron river (21)

As they are a newly operated bar, food-wise they still have room for improvement. they need time to adjust and will go back again.

While waiting for next appointment and not sure where to go, he randomly try out Nanyang Cafe in Eko Cheras Mall. While I was writing this, only know that they are actually quite famous among this neighbourhood for a Hong Kong Cafe in KL after Kim Garry.

Eko Cheras

Simple modern interior that reflects much more on the Hong Kong Cha Chan Teng.

Polo Pau

What attracted me to try this outlet is because of their Hong Kong Polo Bun that make fresh in the kitchen, that looks pretty decent.

Hong Kong Cafe

Nanyang Cafe (4)

Menu is quite direct with noodles, cheese rice, toast where it should be. Pork Burger with their french style bun.

Nanyang Cafe (5)

I must say that their drinks are very impressive. All their drink series are very solid or strong in taste. Those with weaker heart might not stand their Coffee. Smooth and strong in taste.

I tried 3:

  1. Hong Kong Coffee
  2. Hong Kong Milk Tea
  3. HOng Kong Yin Yeong

I personally like their coffee if were for breakfast. then their milk tea taste better too.

Nanyang Cafe (6)

wan tan noodle is alright. Noodle is springy and the wanton sui know is pretty decent in size. A prawn sui know.

Nanyang Cafe (7)

Polo bun

This is the main star that caught me into the outlet. Hong Kong Polo Bao with New Zealand Butter @ RM 4.80. It is not too bad for a bun. Fresh soft bun, flaky crusty top and with a slice of butter and a glass of coffee its a great combination.

Healthy eating? What comes into your mind? Modern will say poke bowl. Older generation will say vegetarian. Well, both is also healthy for me. Another will be this Purple Cane Tea Cuisine in the Gardens, Mid Valley, which is one of my favourite restaurants. a restaurant cooking is infused with Tea. Not only that, trying to cater to a bigger market, it is Pork Free restaurant that they do not sell pork and beef.

With the festive season of Mid Autumn is just around the corner, celebrating this The Big, Bright and Beautiful Moon 《圓月溜溜》 Delivering a Plate Filled with the Gift of Fullness and Serenity.

mid valley

one of their moving item is also their HALAL mooncake which is love by many races. Prominents tea flavour which is not sweet yet flavourful.

When you order a pot of tea, 2 pot will be served. This is how the way they filter their tea. First pour of tea water into the pot. Then let it sit for a while before pouring out. According to them, this is the best way to get the aroma out from the tea.

Exactly like how I was thought when I visited China.

Purple Cane (10)

Purple Cane (8)

One of my all time favourite is their Double Boil Soup. Yup! Double boil soup serve in a tea pot. It is punch with flavour, easy to drink as I like it. I do not mind to have 3 tea pot of double boil soup. Recommended!

Purple Cane (7)

What is in the teapot? as below. The amount of ingredient in it for such a small pot!

Purple Cane (11)

Purple Cane (1)

I define this, a place where offer a kind of Taiwanese classic ambience with tea infusion food. Their mid autumn festival menu starts from RM 88 that can easily feed 4 pax. But there were 6 of us and I think it is just nice. 1 guy 5 girls.

Purple Cane (12)

Simmered Chicken with Yam in Jasmine Tea Sauce.

the chicken is soft and the winning part is the creamy sauce. Fragrant and just syrup ontop of your rice is a perfect combination. 
Purple Cane (13)

One of the signature for the restaurant is this Black Tea Curry Lions Mane Mushrooms. The curry is not too thick, yet you would easily need to bowl of rice for this. So easy to eat, super mild spicy with mild creamy. Instead of santan the replace it with Almond milk.

Purple Cane (15)

Purple Cane (16)

Sweet and sour Sliced Grouper with Lychee Black Tea. Fried to perfection as it is crispy and a layer of fragrant which is just right.
