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.

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.

Local inspired food with a twist. Where can you actually find that in modern dining. It was a recent discovery for me that Bijan at Changkat Bukit Bintang is actually a well known Malay restaurant visited by many. With the success of this, they have expended it next door with SPG by Bijan. A twist of Malay Tapas and Light Bites and specialize cocktails with local infusion.

bar in changkat bukit bintang

If you are looking for Malay Cuisine then head to their classic well known Bijan.

spg by bijan

Certainly inlove with their ambiance. It reminds me of like when I am in Bali. Casual sitting area with fan and neon purple as background and classic mosaic bar is indeed a perfect place for gathering.

spg by bijan (5)

Their cocktail series is indeed a bomb. Not your usual classic that you get in cocktail bar but it is indeed with local flavours infusion.  Believe that one of a unique cocktail in Changkat Bukit Bintang?

Hit The Road Jack @ RM 35 : vodka, frangelico, jackfruit, lemon

One of the local inspired cocktail is :Petai Cocktail. YUP! PETAI! Stinkini @ RM 35 pickled petai, gin, vermouth. I was like whatttt.???!!! Decided to give it a try and it blew me away. I am not a fan of petai but this cocktail is another level. A well balance of mix with hint of fermented petai that brings the aroma right at the end. PERFECT PERFECT! – Recommneded!

Blur Like Sotomg @ RM 42 : Spicy squid ink sambal tumis, anchovies, petai, mozzarella & coriander. One of my favourite for the night as a well nice mixture of flavor. not the usual Italian classic. A clever combination that brings all the flavour subtle.

spg by bijan (13)

Or Chien San @ RM 22 : It’s SPG’s or chien meets okonomiyaki. Fried oyster omelette, miso chili sauce, aioli, bonito flake & sesame. Topped with fresh oyster and omelet is done right. Bonito flakes adds a layer of smokey flavour into it.

spg by bijan (14)

One of the iconic entry for the menu is : Ah Ran Sini @ RM 25 Nasi Lemak flavours stuffed into rice balls & deep fried for deliciousness, served with anchovy mayo

spg by bijan (15)

Lamb Dumplings @ RM 16 : Lamb & Chinese parsley dumplings served with black vinegar, shrimp chili oil. First time having dumpling made with lamb. Lamb is soft and chili shirmp is a great pairing.

spg by bijan (16)

Duck Curry Bun @ RM 29 : Baked Keralan duck curry in a bun.  Extra bread for dipping +5. Second favourite of the night is this unique dish for me. Duck curry bun that had done to perfection. Fluffy bun dip into the bread is just perfect. With its hint of tumeric and duck meat cook to its softness.

If any of you like Okonomaki then some of you know Chef Takeshi did pretty awesome authentic Japan Okonomaki. Now Okonomi by Tokyo Don is operating in Japanese Street Pavilion Level 6. I have been going a few times right after MCO to eat back the Okonomaki till only 3 weeks ago I discover they have move there.

It spark me that could not be that famous outlet is out of business.

Okonomi (10)

This is not your usual Sesame Tofu . The texture is so smooth that you are forgeting it is tofu. It is made with black sesame and arrowroot powder.

Okonomi (11)

Avocado with Cheese is a simple snack with Avocado wedge on grilled cheese melt. It’s creamy and cheesy but a tad too oily for my liking.

best okonomi

Jeng jeng jenggg. This is their signature. A must have from Chef. Okonomaki that is done to perfection. The okonomaki is thick enough to my liking, punch with flavour especially chef special sauce. Salty fragrant and goes well with the Pork Okonomaki.

Their next signature is also their  Australian Wagyu Sirloin@ RM 190. With some fats in between, grill to just nice. Every bite is enjoyable.

There are certain area famous for certain food. When comes to Kajang, what do you all think off? For me its Satay. Satay Kajang seems to be one of the most famous street food that most of us can associated to. I am sure there are plenty of Satay Kajang out there and there is this particular stall when @broughtup2share told me I must visit! Willy Satay is one of their favourite satay stall.

willy satay

True enough, I must agree with them that, for the first time in my life, I have seen a sate business which is soo good that it needs 5 bbq pit. Fully operating yet there are not many customer in the food court. Apparently, they are famous for both tapau and dine in. The only other 5 pit I am seeing is this famous roti canai at Klang, which also running with 5 roti canai pit  – restaurant IV at Klang

What I have read that they have been in sate business 12 years ago at only a small road side stall. Over the years they have gain huge loyal customer to be where they are today.

willy satay kajang (5)

One of the famous Malaysian street food yet you have to go all the way to Kajang. These are the famous charcoal satay in Kajang. I am sure that every satay seller do have their own special marination or recipe in place.

willy satay kajang (4)

willy satay kajang (10)

But theirs, is another level. The marination and the kind of spice mixture that makes the aroma of the sata so fragrant and flavorful is a whole new level.

willy satay kajang (9)

After burning in the bbq pit. the meat is crystalize glaze yet look juicy inside out.

willy satay kajang (12)

The meat here is slightly chunkier compare to the ones I had previously. My usual order to test a stall out are:

  1. 5 x chicken
  2. 5 x beef
  3. 5 x chicken

Satay sauce or peanut sauce here is slightly diluted but do have its own taste. I believe that the satay itself is already punch with flavour that you need not mix with the peanut sauce.

willy satay kajang (11)

All the satay sticks are flavourful by its own. A good combination yet the only thing to highlight is that if you are taking the lamb, it is slightly tough on meat and gamey in taste. Those of you do not like lamb taste, this might turn you off. However, eaters like me, must have the gamey taste and we enjoy it.

best satay in kl (2)

To mark this place is quite easy. You see the place punch out the most smoke, then you know you are nearby the stall. I am sure there are alot other great satay stalls in Kajang. Could Willy satay be one of the best Satay in Kajang or best satay in KL? Why not you guys share with me where is your favourite satay in Kajang?

I have tried a few satay in Kajang like :

  1. HJ Samuri (I have tried before the Kajang branch)

They do have delivery too. Just give them a call.

This would be my very first time doing men’s beauty product review base on some request. There are friends and strangers asked me through taufulou instagram that do I use facial products to maintain my skin. Many ask how do I manage to look younger than my actual age. Actually there is this particular brand I have been using, which is IOPE Korean Men Facial product series.

IOPE Men series

I have been using this Skin Care IOPE Men’s Series from Korea for the past 4 years. These mens product series are not available in Malaysia market as there are some reseller or even authorize seller carry the women’s collection.

How I stumble upon this series is that I was buying for my mom when I was traveling in Korea. Then asked the consultant, is this brand good for my skin then she recommended me this 3 products, that would be sufficient for my skincare.

men facial serum

IOPE Men skin care series with:
1. IOPE Pore Clean Mud Cleanser (estimated RM 120 – RM 150)
2. IOPE Bio Essence Intense Conditioning (estiamted RM 150 – RM 190)
3. IOPE Anti – Aging Emulsion (estimated RM 200 – RM 250)

facial mud wash

My personal favourite is this IOPE Pore Clean Mud Cleanser. It is sort of like soft mud, just press out a bit will do. Then rice water onto your face and just scrub it all the way. Best is about 30 seconds. Always go in one circular motion. If you start off with anti clockwise, best to maintain the whole sequence in that way. (that’s what the consultant taught me).

My dad is in love with this product too. Once he tried it, he ask me to buy for him too.

What I felt after using is that, my skin felt fresh and smooth.

korean facial products

toner

My second best favourite product is this IOPE Bio Essence Intense Conditioning. This is more like a Toner but then it has the freshness effect.

This is good after face wash then gently tap onto your face. The little effect it gives to my face is , it energize it look more fresh. Usually if I lack of sleep or I drank a night and could not really get up, I will certainly apply this when goes to work. It felt like makes up my face look fresh instead of pale and dull.

IOPE korea

Lastly, is the most expensive item is this IOPE Anti – Aging Emulsion. This is more like a serum to me. Comes in a cream format and usually I applies before sleep.

I only apply this on day time if I got important meetings or occasions. What is the effect? I have no idea cuz I felt expensive. Instead of using it daily, I only use once a week, hence the impact is not prominent.

korean skin care

men facial care

Not too sure is there before and after effect you guys can see as on the left was before and right is after I have applied the 3 steps.

Many also asked where to buy this series. The only place to buy is direct from Korea. How I gotten it is that whenever I know my friends traveling to Korea, I ask them tumpang to buy 2 sets back. The 2 facial product for men that I stock up are :

1. IOPE Pore Clean Mud Cleanser (estimated RM 120 – RM 150)
2. IOPE Bio Essence Intense Conditioning

Since MCO started in Malaysia, I have been doing mask weekly.

So yah, this is my facial product and I will share soon on the brand of mask that I am using.
