I was brought by my friend to this what I called High Class Tim Sum. My first time in such dining for breakfast. Was drag up by my friend saying that bring me to a nice place for dim sum and just go loh.. Ended up here. Well, we came pretty early and the pathway to this restaurant it seems like the my house. No one is walking around, just US!! Then till the restaurant, EMPTY for the whole area. Then my friend prank me, I book the whole area ma. Don’t you know that~ In my dreams. The restaurant is very nicely renovated with classy interior and dim lights. It is so comfortable that once your ass is on the chair, it is glued with it. Would not really want to walk away. Then it was like the whole restaurant waiter and waitress are ready to serve us cuz we were the only customer that time. Wow!! what a service that they providing. The crowd starts pouring in after 12pm, I was there at 11am and alot of Datuk’s and Datin’s came here for their breakfast or what I would say Brunch….
I was the only one with camera, and all the people stare at me like a monkey with a camera what is this person trying to do. No picture please! this kind of feel.

Well, once you are seated they serve you this walnut. Taste good. *beware it is piousness Once eaten will never stop.

This is what I called Hong Kong Chee Cheong Fan’ (fried version)but here is name as ‘CCF‘ on the receipt. Do not know what the hell it means. Very very nice. The skin is crispy on the outsite and inside it is soft with steam type. The filling is with Char Siew. Highly recommended also. RM 11.50

My tim sum will always never miss a few dish, the ‘Steamed Pork Buns’ aka ‘Char Siew Pau‘. The bun is nicely steam and the filling is good. The mince meet is juicy, blacky enough and very nice char siew taste. RM 9 for this.
Must not miss No.2 Siew Mai’ The top of the siew mai is with the egg roe where you can find it in the sushi. You can just feel the pork ah,soft and not too thick the feeling. Mix with ‘Tim cheong‘ very nice. RM10

Wanted to have “loh mai kai‘ they do not serve so ended up ordering this one. ‘Glutinous Rice’ Which I never finish, only eat 3 bites cuz my friends they don eat. It is salty and aroma doesnt taste good. Maybe not my type but what I have eaten in Melb is far big difference. (Cannot compare then).RM14

Must not miss no.3 ‘Chicken Feet’. Not Happy Feet the show. It is a bit spicy, the skin of the chicken leg is alright, would not order again my next visit. Not my type of taste for this one. RM9

My friend ordered this ‘Lunar Cakes’. It is friend. For me I can manage to eat 1 whole piece. More than that please kill me. A bit sweet. Taste nice. Must be shared with more people only taste better.My most preferred for this is that my mom always did it for me, whereby steam it, then mix it with coconut. Wow, that will be so nice compare to this(my preference)RM10

They introduce the speciality of the desert here which is tadaaa‘Avocado Cream’ yucks..I hate avocado but surprisingly in this I took it. Taste nice and sweet, so smooth like eating Gelato ice-cream. Highly recommend on this desert. Will never be perfect if not desert to end with.

RM 12
The whole bills come in total of RM 116 including tea, taxes and service charge. For such a location I think it is reasonable and with their service they are providing. Would rate them 1st class.

This morning was suppose to meet up my friend. This is the first time in my life waiting for some one for so long. I was waiting for my ex colleage from 11 till 3 without notifying. Bloody Idiot!!! saying as a friend. ‘What a friend’!! till today he had dissapeared.

Another type of the O-Town food style. It had quite a nice interior for the inside as this is non smoking area and for smokers you can sit outside which I find it pretty hot. The staff here is friendly but the service here is bad.

The ‘Teh Iced’ i orederd RM3.50 Taste so so only.
A set of bread toast with kaya and ButterRM1.20(damm little, only 4 small cut peices) and 2 Omega half boil eggsRM 3.20
The price mention is based on estimation as I cant really remember the exact price but it is near.

Was searching for nice Japanese food and Jeslin recommended this Kampachi Restaurant, have heard good food review that they provided here. Been always saying wanted to dine here, and finally get the chance to go with their classy outlook and cozy interior.

This restaurant is pretty huge with its luxury interior settings and spacious. Feel cosy to sit in a place like that to enjoy your meal.

Here are all the shasimi and sushi being prepared by all the busy chef here. All of the raw ingredients looks fresh.

This is what I have ordered. In the menu, the picture looks different from the rest so give it a try. They serve in a set and comes with miso, chawamushi, chicken and the main is Some salmon mix with egg roe. It is a cold dish. Did not know that. I use my chopstick and stir everything in there. Taste a bit weird at first cuz it is cold but then after a while, taste nice. The chicken is nicely deep fried. Chrispyyy on the outside, juicy on the inside. This is ‘Shake Oyako/Wakadori RM35
This is what Ian ordered Teppanyaki Beef Set’. When the set is serve, we were pretty shock of the serving portion. With his size, definitely he ordered the right food. I can’t take beef,so cannot review on it but what he said is the beef is just tender, soft and nice. Not too cook as he order it to be half done. It cost RM48
Jeslin order this as she said wanted to go diet, ‘Sushi Bento. The shashimi is very fresh as this is what I say. It cost RM 48
Jean ordered Unadon & Salmon’. I have no comment on this dish cuz she sat the other end of me, so my hand can’t stretch so what she said was so so only except the Unagi is nice. The dish is RM40

Gyu Katsu Don’ is what Jay Jay have for the night. It is something like Oyako don. This dish I would recommend as it is nicely cook on the chicken meat, the egg is not too cook, nice to blend/mix with the rice. Goes along very well. It is RM40 which I would say a bit expensive for this.

Ian is like a vacuum cleaner, sucking all the sauce and finish the whole dish. Dinosaur. Trying to cover his face not to be identified.

Jeslin too finish everything but I did help her on the last 2 piece of sushi. Trying to avoid too like Ian.
Good meal must always finish with a desert. Jeslin ordered this Macha Zenzai cost RM16. Nothing special about it as a green tea ice cream with red bean sauce and Japanese mua chi. Can get it in MOF on the food court level which is something similar.
This is what Ian get for his desert Goma IC Special’ RM 16. I think it is special because of the biscuits standing tall with red bean, mango, Japanese mua chi and Sesame Ice Cream(which I don like). Special in the deco but taste normal.
After sit, chat and eat by deciding to call for the bill, it comes up the total off RM289. What I can say is the price of the fine dining restaurant. Cant blame for it.

This post was suppose to be up last year mid December, was not free to blog it delay till now. That time decided to go lunch at this Bavarian Beirhous a German food restaurant. The place looks nice and with the set lunch promotion was told by my friend is RM20 set. So we just went ahead.


It was kinda packed with the office people around lunch time

A very classic sitting place

The bar area looks pretty decent with the wall picture black and white

The set lunch is RM 20 include this soup, drinks and a main course.

This is the ‘Pork Steak’. Looks pretty ordinary and INDEED it is ORDINARY. Noting so special about this dish as with the set lunch price totally do not worth what they serve. The pork with BBQ and some plum sauce gravy on top and mash potato at the bottom,’ JUST LIKE THAT’. So plain.
The taste of the pork they over cooked it, therefore it is like very chewylicous and hard. The sauce is like BBQ and plum tasted weird. With the quality like that, I would say that most of the people can also just grilled it out. The mash potato is soft and riches with milk and some cheezy taste.

This is what they called Thueringer Sausage’. Simple and nice for the set of decoration. The 2 sausage is so small if I were to order it, I just would not know how can it fill in my stomach. Just by measuring it around my stomach, I think it just fill like 1/4 of my capacity.

The taste of the sausage is just ………….. no comment.

Grace and me ordering the Pork Steak
Ee Lune ordered this sausage dish for small size person.
Well, I would say that their set lunch I would not recommend on it, but the choices are there, From Monday to Friday, every day their menu is different from a 3 choices to choose.
German food is usually famous for their pork, guess that I will be going back again to try on their signature dish. No More Set Lunch.

Christmas was around the corner, me and my friends decided to have a better dinner so me and Lys chose Sentidos Tapas a Spanish restaurant at Starhill. The restaurant ambiance is not bad. The pricing is expected as we are eating at StarHill. This restaurant definitely good for a drink and also to catch soccer also for those who are into football.

We ordered 2 starter, start of with this Lamb Meatballs. Does not taste nice, the meet is hard and there is not much taste in the meet yet it is a bit overcook. So BANNED on this dish cost RM16.
This starter is Fried Octopus. The nicest compare to the other stupid lamb ball. The taste of the octopus is nice with its friend smell is there, just nice and juicy with the octopus smell definitely similar like what you can get in Japanese restaurant. This also cost RM16
This is our main dish Chicken Paella. It is something like nasi Berayni. A bit different from that, as has strong smell of Green paper which is dislike, but the rice definitely taste good. The wok is hot, therefore you have to stir it quite like claypot rice. Satisfying dish. Cost RM 44. Not a very big portion though.
This is my favourite of the night. It is Fettuccini Funghi. For me I would rate it is Fettuccine Carbonara. The cream is think and milky. Just nice for the Fettuccine and enough chezzie but not enough of the gravy. If they add a little more would be perfect. Creamy and Cheezy..Yum!!!!

After the dinner is the pressie exchange time!!!

This is what Jason got for his Christmas gift exchange cute Paul Frank

This is what Lara got delicious Godiva Chocolate.

Lyssa got a mystery gift with nice wrapping.
My mystery gift and a Christmas card.
OMG!!! This is what I got for the gift. A Canon EF 75-300mm lens. When I opened it with my eyes so big nearly popping out, I could not believe what I have got. Just a perfect Christmas gift for me. Thanks to you!! Really really love it alot!!! Thaaaankkksssss!!!!! Just a wonderful Christmas by having You and all of you.
Total bill for the dinner is RM130
The service was bad. The waiter and waitress were like snail and yet blind. Could not see us wave our hand. Have to call. Bad rating for the workers there.

Finally, after a few days of searching of restaurant, we have decided this will be the restaurant to be dine for the Team Bonding Champion’s held at Port Dickson last weekend. This restaurant have a nice ambiance as to my first time I went down to lower ground of StarHill and to my astonishment, the whole place is well decorated with alot of fine dining restaurants and the design of the area is just so good. It does not surprise me only during the first visit but definitely the rest also.

Tarbush actually serve Arabic food and the owner is also from Arab. Therefore with the origins of the actual culture, we give it a try.

The decoration of the restaurant is not bad but definitely its crowded, when it comes to celebration as that day it was not us only have celebration there were another big long table on next to us was about 14-18 people, and us would be 9 people. It was crowded until like the waiter and waitress have sneak thru the narrow ally of the chairs in between with us praying that the food don’t fall on our head. Communication would be a problem if you ask the wrong waiter or waitress as they are from Arab. They do have locals also but I definitely can say that during Tuesday night, the whole restaurant was full with foreigners and we were the only local customer that they have.

Caesar Salad

This would be the first dish of the night, a Caesar Salad. Can honestly said that it is just a salad, noting special on it and of course most of the team winner did not finish it as this is their first time in their life that start to eat a meal with a salad.

Mushroom Soup

The second dish that came up. Mushroom Soup. Definitely it looks ordinary, but when you drink it, it is so think and fill with mushroom blended. Not only that, the special ingredient that they add in was oyster. They blend mushroom and oyster together, that makes the taste nice and think.

This is my main course, forgot what it is called as I forgot to take the receipt back. But the whole meat is all lamb. The lamb is so tender and soft. Juicy and melt on the fats of it. The nasi beyani have the wok aroma. It goes very well with the nut and also eggplant.


This is the winner main course as most of them ordered this which is the Lamb.(forgot what’s the name also) This serving was not really nice, as the lamb is overcook. Some pieces of the lamb is burn because the reheat the food again. Even you can take one of the burn piece of lamb and throw the dog, will faint. It is just so hard. We complain on this dish.

Mix Grill
This is another main course we ordered. Its Mix Grill, This definitely taste alot much better compare to the Lamb thing. It is a mixture of Chicken and Lamb. Start off with the chicken, the chicken tendory is so juicy and soft as they cook it just nice, not too hard and ngam ngam cook. The Lamb is definitely the best in there, they season it with mint I believe as has strong taste of it, yet when you cut it, there will be the juice flowing out from the lamb. The pizza, from the top left is the nicest, they mince the lamb and baked in pizza style.
Caramel Pudding & Arab Dessert(Baklawa)
 
 
Caramel pudding taste normal, noting special on that. But definitely to our shocking experience, the Arab Dessert is the most expensive desert we ever encounter. It cost RM15 and it was only a few pieces on the dish. Looks like the left over that they manage to accumulate and serve it out. We were so ‘charm’ have to be like 1 person bite half. BANNED on it. It was not as nice as I ate when I was in Melbourne.
This are the chef that prepare our food. Definitely a good job to him, in the middle. We will come saviour on the lamb again. Definately the service in there was good by the supervisor Yaakob. Great job to you for serving us so good. During the complain of the lamb, he asked us what do we want for the compensation, in the end he gave us 1 more extra Sisha and 2 ‘Teko’ of Arab Tea.
9 of us dine in a total bill of RM650. Well, I guess it was reasonable. As 5 of them (champion had 4 dish course and 4 committee only had main dish and a drink.
