Enjoy the nature, with sounds of birds chipping, sound of waterfall, and tress moving thru strong winds. This would be a perfect venue for family and friends gathering. Even for kids to run around at this area is still quite safe.

Start off with Tradional lou sang as this platter can easily fit 12-16 pax.

What can you expect over here is that the dishes are prepared by Executive Chef Somkuhan that would definitely spoil your taste buds with her Traditional Indochinese delicacies, which is something quite near to Chinese Cuisine. In another way to express can be in a form of Indonesian Chinese Cooking method.

Special fried roll for a starter. Along with salad next, that is filled with fried squid rings. A little spicy, sourish that makes it a good starter.

Prawn Soya Bean Pudding is very interesting as this is quite a new dish for me. Soft, like near to taufufa, slight creamy that gives a nice touch with freshness of prawns.

Clear Soup Chicken Tomyum whichs gives you a version of sourish is more than spiciness.

tamarind springs (15)

Quite like this, as the stewed duck is well done, best to pair with rice. Gravy is spot on and duck meat might be just a little too hard. Another dish that goes well with your rice is their Steamed Seabass with Ginger Sauce. Simple dish with the right amount of solid ingredient to make it pungent in taste.

I think Cincin Restaurant & Wine Bar is a good addition for Cheras Folks. I am not too sure is there any wine bar around but to cater for such a huge population is indeed a great addtion to the areay where folks in Cheras do not have to drive so far to hang out.

CinCin (1)

It is a two-storey restaurant located opposite Cheras Leisure Mall with ample of parking during night. Since MRT is operationg, good for those who needs to rely on the train, you can get off at MRT Taman Mutiara station and take a cab there as the restaurant is less than 1km away.

CinCin (2)

Well, all of us are like curious goat where why does the place is name cin cin and only found out that in Italian, Cincin literally translates to “Cheers”. Therefore, this place is a restaurant and wine bar also the space is big enough to cater for .private parties. The separation of space in the venue means ground floor – mainly for beer and casual dining and 1st floor – wine dining with a dress code – smart casual or can be your private event space.

Indeed Malaysian is spoilt of choices when it comes to food. Many of foodie mention Sapore is a hidden gem in Ampang. Alright what is Sapore? Sapore, means “flavour” in Italian also tag with an interesting slogan “Serving you Artisan Food and Fine Wine”. A restaurant that serve serving authentic Italian and Spanish-Mediterranean cuisine lead by Chef Fabio Ruggiero, who originates from Bari in Italy. It is hidden right behind the busy street of Jalan Ampang fly over bridge.

Sapore (8)

Every diners are serve with free entry of fresh and artisanally-made Focaccia. Any order is @ RM 5. Fragrant, soft and airy. Perfect to dip with their olive vinegar.

Sapore (9)

To those of you who have wine on your table or hand – Antipasti Tagliere for Sharing @ RM 88 is one of a platter are encourage to order as it is serve with mixture of Chorinzo Pork Sausage, Salchichon Spanish Sausage, Parma Ham, Capocollo Salami, Porchetta Pork Roast, Rillettes, and pickled vegetables. Fresh cut, love the variety of different texture and taste and if could have a white wine and red wine to go along is perfect!

Sapore (10)

This is rather interesting, as they serve this 1.1 kg Dry-Aged T-Bone Grain-Feed with Sea Salt Fiorentina Style, @ RM 238 – Served with Potato and Rucola Salad.

Sapore (11)

Sapore (12)

Spanish Sangria served with assorted fruits and red wine that go thru some fermentation process. If you love the slight pungent taste of classic sangria, you can order a glass to try it out. I like the taste of slight bitterness and dry end of it where the alcohol taste is minimal.

Sapore (13)

There are no 3 little pigs walking around. If yes there might left two as one on the table.

Sapore (14)

The Roasted suckling pig porchetta (Half : RM 198 / Full: RM 368) was one of the chef signatures and a must to try. Pig is roast to perfection where the skin is shiny and crispy. Bath with fragrant oil and thyme and a glass of their house white is not too bad too.

Sapore (15)

Comes with 4 sauces pairing. Personal favourite is the apple vinegar sauce and bbq.

Sapore (16)

Sapore (17)

Some of you might find this boring, as I find it a bit classic. Pici Pasta – served to together with porcini mushrooms and pork bolognese sauce, simple pasta but love the thickness of the pasta noodle that gives you the chewy texture.

Sapore (18)

This dish, a red wine would be perfect. Either Shiraz or a dry red. Cook to perfection for medium rare, where it is still red. The marination is perfect where a taste of mixture herbs is well balance and saltiness of seasalt is not overpowering. It is great sharing portion.

Sapore (19)

Panna Cotta @ RM 12 , along with Cake of the Day and Vanilla Creme Brulee will be my personal choice if were to order a dessert.

There are certain item which is only available in certain days, therefore best to call up to make booking on these special items. Roasted Octopus, Suckling Pig, 1.1 kg Dry-Aged T-Bone, Sevruga Caviar, and Pork Iberico Seafood Paella (Paella only available every Sun)

Who would have thought the next latest crazy hype is a simple homemade old-fashion egg sponge cake from Taiwan known as Original Cake had landed at Sunway Velocity, Cheras. Origin from Tamshui, Taiwan (臺灣淡水) that started since 2011. The hype for this shop is simply amazing that have created a huge buzz among all my friends and even week days, you have to queue 2-3 hours to get one. If I am not mistaken, I was told each person can only purchase 1.

Original Cake (2)

I was lucky that my friend help me to make a take away. Love their packaging.

Original Cake (3)

As I open the box, the cake sure do look a simple classic cake that we have locally and easily could get in our pasar malam too. Currently they have 2 flavours as the one my friend got for me is Classic @ RM 18 and another flavour that alot of my friends is aiming at is their Cheese @ RM 25 – that do have a melted slice cheese cheddar.

Other flavours to launch in the future will be :Spurted Chocolate, Healthy Dried Longan, Banana Milk, Cranberry, and Almond and Nuts

Original Cake (4)

As I pick it up, believe the cake texture have dense up as I do expect soft and fluffy sponge cake. As you can see, the base is also quite thick.

Original Cake (5)

Original Cake (6)

After a bite, only release that it is a pretty normal cake. However, the light and airy taste comes after that. The taste of mild fragrant egg with is there and mild milk sweetness that pairs quite well at the very end of the bite. The base that is quite thick, gives you the bitterness of mild burnt taste, also believe that the separation of ingredient is quite prominent where the top half is softer and the bottom half is more dense. The taste is very straight forward and I believe we can get such cake in our Pasar Malam. In the box, mention that it can store maximum of 3 days in refrigerator.

I believe that, the texture will be different if you eat it fresh. However, I will go again after 3 months as to queue for a cake for 2-3 hours, I will settle with some at Pasar Malam first as my friend told me you can get quite similiar to this in Taman Connought Night Market. Another reason for such a long time will be similiar to when Uncle Tetsu started, baking time per oven.

Apparently, I got to learn that Doutor Coffee is actually one of the largest Japanese Coffee chain and they have just open their first outlet at Sunway Velocity Mall over last weekend. It is one of a mall that is currently making a big buzz. Stumble upon this brand as I have never seen this and also need a place to settle work.

At the High stool area, each seat is equip with a plug point.

Doutor (5)

Also seeing their orders, alot customers head for their long black drip. Beans smells good too.

Doutor (6)

Their pastries do looks good and their best seller is Original Croffle @ RM 7 for 1 pair.

Doutor (7)

Doutor (8)

Besides those pastries, they do have warm food too.

Doutor (9)

Doutor (11)

Ordered their Honey Cafe Latte @ RM 13 which is also was recommended by the cashier. Turns out to be pretty good. Hint of mild coffee taste with a subtle hint of honey end.

Doutor (12)

Of course do get a pair of their best seller. Nicely cook, where this croffle to me is actually like a combination of Belgian liege waffle with croissant. Slightly chewy yet you can get the croissant texture. Coated with some caramelize sugar like how Belgian liege waffle original is.

Doutor (13)

Doutor (14)

Croissant Twist @ RM 8

Doutor (15)

This is by far one of the most interesting signature coffee as this is Military Latte @ RM 16. You taste bud will be filled with  multiple layer of flavour that do make you confuse. You get to taste a hint of seaweed, nice green tea aroma, some burnt chocolate taste yet a very nice flavour of coffee after taste. This or Honey latte would be a recommended item.

Did went back again to grab a take away Classic Latte @ RM 11. Their coffee is very mild in taste and some of you might find that their milk will be slightly strong in taste.
