Kota Damansara/ T.T.D.I


One of my favorite private hidden wine bar Private Room at TTDI had now change to Collins Sake and wine bar. A slight chance of concept to iron out their new route towards Japanese. Some good selection of Japanese Gin and Sake you can find in here with many of the Japanese Gin I have not seen before. Of course, you can still pick your selection of wine at the rack.


Still the same as you need to find this blue door, to head up to their secret hideout.

They classic Japanese Gin is quite awesome. IF you love variety of Japanese Gin in PJ area, they options are pretty alright. For ladies, you would definitely love the Sakurao Japanse Dry Gin or Yuzu Gin. These two are so easy to drink that the effect will knock you off direct. Both have its own fragrant.

My personal favourite is this among the 3 we have tried. Okinawa Gin is in deed a classic yet unique. A flavour that not many will enjoy as it is quite strong and pungent after taste. A bit woody end. This is like drinking Isle whisky which is on the oaky side.

Slowly I am turning into a fan of Marrybrown. A local brand that had been in our market since 1981. To surprise you, they have 500 restaurants across 16 countries . The group been growing steadily and getting hyped up over their egg-cited Salted egg yolk series. Carefully curated and R&D over the years had make a huge come back with a slight twist on this new Marybrown Salted Egg Meals.

Available in two options. Diners can hit on their Burger or MB Crispy Chicken coated in tantalizing real Salted Egg sauce!

We were greedy. I hit on for their 3 piece Crispy Chicken Salted Egg and my sister is after their Salted Egg Burger. , For the Salted Egg Ayam meal, it serve along mashed potatoes and vegetable salad. Both orders are serve with generous serving of Marrybrown’s special rich and creamy Salted Egg sauce infused with a dash of spice and aromatic curry leaves for that extra local flavor.

Quite a decent price from RM 15, both combo meals come with a refreshing cup of Heaven and Earth Ice Lemon Tea to quench one’s thirst.

Marrybrown (4)

Combo meals can be chosen with 2 piece chicken combo @ RM 15.90 or 3 piece chicken Salted Egg Ayam combo @ RM 18.80. As I heard quite good feedback about this flavours, and I got greedy by ordering 3 pieces of Crispy Chicken Salted Egg.

Marrybrown (5)

My sister love their Crispy Chicken Salted Egg Burger from RM 15.90. Serve with a piece of juicy chicken and it is indeed quite good! Do not mind to come back for this next round.

Salted Egg Ayam

Salted Egg Meals

During MCO I did try on Grab Delivery as my food is usually 30-45 minutes later. Upon arrival the chicken is not that crispy. This round I order in their outlet and the chicken turns out much better than what I have experience. Serve with 3 quite big piece chicken, drench with their salted egg sauce.

Salted Egg Burger

The sauce is thick, fragrant, and punch with flavours. Even I finish the third piece, it do not give me the “too much” kind of salted egg yolk feeling. Indeed egg-stra padu. I do not mind to have a mini sauce tub filled with egg yolk at the side, then it would be perfect.

I certainly do not mind to come back for their this crisply chicken series. Recommended by me

Japanese Roasted Sesame Rice Bowl @ RM 5.80 Crunchy chicken tenders with roasted sesame dressing, served over diced tomatoes, onions, shredded lettuce and fluffy fragrant rice.

texas chicken (5)

Spicy Korean Bowl @ RM 5.80 Chunky chicken tenders, drizzled with sweet and spicy sauce and sesame seeds. Layered on top of diced tomato, shredded lettuce and fluffy fragrant rice.

texas chicken (6)

Out of my expectation, rice are pretty good for the kind of price that they are offering. At RM 5.80 per bowl, I certainly I have no complain over it. Among the 2, Spicy Korean bowl will be my prefer option as gives me the hint of spiciness that I like. Japanese rice is not bad too as it is slightly more creamy from the sesame sauce.

Spicy Thai Porridge @ RM 5.30 Warm porridge with tender chicken chunks, topped with crispy tomyum flavoured potato flakes

texas chicken (9)

Chicken Porridge @ RM 5.30 Tender chicken chunks, garnish with sesame oil, spring onions, crispy fried onions and thinly sliced chilli. This turn out to be better than what we expected. For a chain to offer a bowl of pippin hot porridge, is quite good. This was the first bowl to finish.

It is now available at all Texas Chicken outlets. When your friends opt for their favourite fried chicken, you now can opt for something smaller in size.

Whenever you purchase their set with drinks, it always comes with free flow and I always aim at their Southern Sweet Tea.

Together with their 3 piece chicken, I will never miss out on their famous honey-butter biscuits too. One of these items is a must-have.

I have been here like at least once a week for 十面埋伏 Ten Noodle Restaurant. Regard them as one of the best Pork noodle in Kota Damansara.

Ten Noodle (1)

They are also consider as the new kid on the block. As in a short span, they have gain their popularity among the working crowd in this area.

Ten Noodle (2)

The best time to dine here is to avoid crazy lunch hour of 12.30pm – 2pm. But then the queue is quite fast as it will be less than 10 minuntes waiting time.

While you are waiting, you can actually browse through their menu and key in your order on the paper. Upon right before your table seating, then pass it to them to place order.

Ten Noodle (4)

One of my favourite is to eat along with dry maggie mee or Koey teow and mee mix.

Ten Noodle (5)


Ten Noodle (7)

This is the soup version. For a bowl of Pork noodle at RM 7.50, we cant complain as it is pot with lots of ingredients in it. Quite generous.

Ten Noodle (9)

Soup base is quite strong and the colour of soup says it all. Sweet and flavourful.

Ten Noodle (10)

One of my favourite pork noodle place in Kota Damansara. If you would want a slight tweak of pork noodle cooking method , then check out ah Loy Pork Noodle in Kota Damansara also.
