As food lover, I know its quite hard for us to hunt for good gourmet food at one area. We did come accross one section was promoted along social media that get to know Food Bites is being held at Jaya One is also a collaboration of Jaya One with Asianage Holdings to make this Gourmet food in Street style available. After carefully curated on the vendors to feature, finally it was these unique 9 vendors that got the opportunity to be feature in this section as Food Bites is also part of Jaya One Weekend Market that happens every quarter for year 2012.
As when comes into food topic, everyone is just excited as seeing a cotton candy like a 3 year old kid. To make this place a wonderful playground for alot of vendors to shine Jaya One act as a creative space for food lovers, as this is a place for the chefs, bakers and baristas to share their culinary in dishing out their specialties without need to have a high start up cost and yet taking care the customer’s wallet by charging them a reasonable price (RM5-RM20). It turns out to be a great food section as they are selling together with Non-Halal food together. Just a perfect combination ~
Happy to see many familiar faces of food bloggers there of course no stranger like BangsarBabe, Evelyn, Me and Isaac, of course there are many more that I see.
As selected blogger by BangsarBabe we were given some vouchers to try out on the food vendors as before that, me and Ken already patron half of the stores before getting it. kekekek~
Food Bites section start along with the weekend market at 11am and the place was instantly flock with many hungry people as all the food were well decorated and it definitely looks tempting or you will felt regret if you do not have any of it.
Found out that most of the vendors do not own a cafe or a place to cook, as cooking is just their passion and some are home bakers as they take orders via introduction or website.
One of my favourite that its hard to get nice brownies and more about if you are talking about alcohol brownies. YES, we are talking on ALCOHOL brownies.
This is one of my favourite Ultra Fudge Brownies – Baileys Irish Cream & Walnuts @ RM 9 as the look itself already tempt me to buy it. A perfect first bite is like love at first side, that it is moist, soft and the alcohol mixture is just perfect that did not overpower the cocoa taste. Generous with ingredient as every bite also filled with walnuts!
As I told the ownner, if she could serve it with a scoop of ice cream along, that would be the most perfect in such humid weather.
and tapau 3 pieces more for own savory.
As after I return back from my studies oversea many donkey years ago, during my working time in the cafe, I was taught by an Italian on how to savior my Quiche as I hate the taste and texture at that time, as once I learn it, its a dish I enjoy very much and its hard to find really nice one in our country.
then came across this colourfull many types of Quiche as this would be my first time so see an offering with my flavours.
all just look tempting as it used to be and one bite, instantly I know this is what I have been looking for, soft that can taste along egg and cheeze taste with mild ingredient after taste on each of it.
We were quite sad as we thought we can roam around and come back for this Quiche and mana tau, came back at 12.30pm it was the last piece and they were sold out! this shows how good their Quiche is! Damm!!! I want more, would love to seem them back again next round!
As coffee lovers, I just love the name of this vendor, Espresso Lab. . Sounds like some R&D coffee bean company. Which is not as the boss are being cheeky with the name to make it catchy, they are actually one of the bean provider. . .
The boss are just so friendly as the particularly the type of playful and get serious to business type. They ask me to try out their 2 signature drink that available for the day only which is Lady Gaga and Green Peace. Unique in taste and something new to me. 😀
Along the stretch I also like this Panini bread spread as they do own a cafe in Bangsar called CRUMBS CAFE located in Lucky Garden. A place you could drop by to savior their lovely bread series!
NUTELLA SMORE-MICH @ RM7 that is one of the best I have come across that is unique that it have melted along with mash mellow, banana and wide spread of nutella and well toast! Just heavenly
that’s the young cheerfull chef that behind the person behind the whole created series and its just lovely!

Front – VPL – Vodka Pineapple and Lime – RM6 – An explosion of expertly blended combination of fruits in a coconut custard tart, lime curd and balanced with a shot of vodka.

Ruby Montana Tart – RM10 a slice
Macerated strawberries and cream carpet a Sarawakian black pepper cookie tart base finish off with a drizzle of aged balsamic vinegar upon order. One of the most unique tart that I have come across in taste and also must say one of the best too with the crust is baked to perfect and they used high grade strawberry to pair it along. Something that you need to try to understand as it might sound weird. Once you taste it, you would want the whole slice by yourself!
next is the cup cake stall bake by this lovely girl with passion of creating unique flavours out at THE FAT BLOSSOM by Yun Ann which she got her aspiration from Melbourne, Australia.
One of her unique creation is Earl Grey flavour as its not easy but she manage to get the taste right.
Oh, if you are here, this is the stalls that many people would not miss cuz it was like an oven on the weather that day, as every one just rush and sardin pack this stall with one of the reason they offer very unique flavors for ice cream potong! POTONG is the name of their brand too . .
Their Booze pop and which have beer flavour, wine is just outstanding and all of us were talking about it. The taste is strong and other normal flavours.
Founders of POTONG Ivan, TeeReei and Victor are captivated by the simplistic idea of developing unique flavor concoctions. The trio only use the freshest, seasonal, natural ingredients that literally melt in your mouth. On this special occasion, these trendy artisan pop makers are bringing out the crowd hits to keep you cool. There are red bean, gula melaka, teh tarik, water melon fizz, Pina Colada, Strawberry Pepper and Choco-Nut.
This is one of a busy stall too with its unique types of hotdog he is offering know by his own brand HAUTE DOGS. Guess what? Zainal have a day job as an engineer by profession and for his passion towards hotdog never stops him from creating his own version that infuse with East meet West too.
This is the DAIKON DOG. It consist of a Teriyaki Glazed chicken sausage served with grated daikon (white carrot), bonito flakes and wasabi mayo. I just love the filling and the sauce, its a bit sad that the bread is a bit hard that it was suppose to be soft according to Bangsarbabe, as the guy prepared early and his first experience in serving such a big scale.
These version of hot dogs just makes me going for more as I took out the bread and went for the filling. As the 3rd picture is Kimchi hot dog as when I saw it, serious? It taste good as it looks. . .
as it proceed to lunch time, strong crowd just pouring into this section and every one just love the unique offering of the food at a very reasonable price.
Frontera is another stall that offer Mexican delight that is well known for their Tacos and also their signature drink – Horny Margarita.
At this last stall that we could not resist and die die also would want to try is this few friends Ryonn and Nick that came out with The TRANSPARENT APRON. These duo also call themself supper club which they serve a min of 4 up to 6 pax at any one time. Me and Ken are very keen to head to their home and sample their special menu for the day as they do not operate in a restaurant and only do live cooking at the home and serve you on the spot! INTERESTING!
In their simple menu, they only offer 3 types of food BrB, Pork-Dog and Pork-Gy. . love the catchy name of their menu.
See the stack of order they have as the are unable to cope with the sudden huge demand which they only cook in small scale as they took up the challenge today and kept us waiting for as long as 3 hours for their main signature item.
They are doing their best to serve all of us and I would say good job to them!
To keep our crave, we kick off with BRB @ RM5 – Be Right Back …. No no no ….. It is Deep Fried Breaded Balls of Bacon Bits & risotto rice served with Napolitana sauce
Pork-Dog @ RM10
Fresh pork sausage on a bun topped with chili con carne and fresh white onion served with a side of chips
Pork-gy @ RM15 is the dish that makes us wait for 3 hours and if you ask me worth the wait? YES, certainly. . the texture of the pork is AWESOME, slowly braised to perfection ale cinnamon with root vegetable mash that nearly melts in your mouth,
Definitely you guys in our hunting list for food as will will storm your house soon . .:D (Check out their FB Page – Transparent Apron)
This section attracts people from all ages with kids enjoying everything too. Me, I just whack every stalls with Ken and other bloggers while we can ended up used finish the RM50 voucher and fork out addtional RM 30 with Ken to try out their full range of food.
Its very worth while that rarely come accross unique gourmet food that feature such talent in the industry. Good job to Jaya One and Asianage Holdings.
I am definately going to be there on their next upcoming one. Check out their FB fans page for more details – http://www.facebook.com/FoodBitesPJ
