Hmmm, this year I do travel alot and lets start off with my Australia journey that I have done which I have always wanted to go back visit my friend. This round did not stop by Melbourne but head direct to Sydney. One of a trip that is pretty last minute but nevertheless I have to thanks to Jun Wen for all the best hospitality and knowing I love food he bring me to all his favourite restaurant – Bassim.

On my late arrival, it was well just nice for dinner time. Therefore he introduce me one of the place that he drop by at least once a week to whack on all his favourite beef slice. When he ask me am I okay for Korean BBQ, of course my reply is hell yah. As far as I know till date, there are still none of the Korean restaurant can still beat anything here yet.

Bassium (1)

Bassim – Steak and Seafood House is like a neighborhood restaurant that located in Strathfield which is about 25 minutes drive away from city. The reason being here is that nearby my friends house.

Bassium (2)

Its a place that fully pack with humans during dinner time as I snap this pic when they are about to close the shop. Yap, we ate from 8.30pm till closing. That’s how much and how long we spend our time there.

Bassium (3)

This is what I mean when getting a spot in the restaurant wasnt easy.

If without any conversion rate, the price is definitely much cheaper to any Malaysian restaurant can offer.

Bassium (5)

Normally, Korean restaurant will give you alot of side dish, but this shop give you selected side dish to pair along with their bbq.

Bassium (6)

AFter BBQ this is the ingredient that you have to wrap along with, a slice of cabbage, garlic, cucumber and green chili.

Bassium (7)

Dipping along with the sauce to make it even more perfect.

Bassium (8)

Charcoal BBQ that bout to bbq your favourite ribs away.

Bassium (9)

Before that, order Denjang (if I am not mistaken) Bean paste soup with vegetable and beef. A perfect dish to go along with its winter outside something to bring back body heat. Pouring the soup over to the rice just  makes it a perfect combination to eat along. Slightly sour with mild spiciness.

Bassium (10)

2 types of meat we order for the night is Spicy Dak Galbi @ AUD 16 marinated along with special spicy sauce.

Bassium (11)

Here comes our ribs So Galbi @ AUD 19 with 3 portion. Look how pretty the red meat is with their own special marination sauce.

Bassium (12)

AS the ribs was added on top, the smell of it generated is aromatic. Cant wait to get a bite of it.

Bassium (13)

Grill till its medium well and left the bone there to char grill. Beef had been own grill to perfection, flavorful, and the seasoning that they use, makes the beef slice juicy. I keep picking up the beef slice and keep ordering till I was totally stuff.

Bassium (14)

Along the way my friend order this, to be eaten along with Beef slice to make it even more kick. We ended up ordering 7 portion of beef and 3 portion of chicken for 4 pax. Definitely all of us are big eater. :p It was a very satisfied dinner, whereby I have long forgotten the best taste of it. At the end of the meal only understand that why this is his favourite Korean place or he rate Bassim is the best Korean BBQ restaurant in Sydney so far. If you do have the time, this is definitely a restaurant worth trying.

I just love end of the year as more and more parties coming up. One of another big music festival coming up is this Heineken Thirst 2012 which is no stranger to me and many of my friends. Most of them are looking forward to this huge music event that is gonna happen on the 8th of December at Sepang! I have been to their last event with huge boombox being build up (click here) which I did not blog about it, just a glimpse for you.

Lighting up the December darkness like a solar flare, Heineken Thirst – Malaysia’s leading electronic music festival – powers back to life again on December 8 at Sepang International Circuit. Expanding into new dimensions of music and creativity with a series of exclusives, this year Heineken Thirst brings you two stages of passion and excitement against a backdrop of towering light sculptures and creative wish fulfilment.

Every year Heineken Thirst searches for sound barriers to break and visual limits to exceed. In 2011, it was lift-off with ever-accelerating super producer Tiësto. In 2010, the awe-inspiring spectacle of Godskitchen Boombox touched down at Sepang. This year Heineken Thirst scores a double first: with twin headliners in the shape of Swedish house supremo Avicii and French electronica pioneers Justice across two arenas, both playing their debut Malaysian sets, Heineken Thirst 2012 is set to eclipse its own supersonic achievements.

“Heineken Thirst is an opportunity for our consumers to experience a destination music festival without jumping on a plane,” comments Loh Ee Lin, Heineken Brand Manager. “For one night they can escape the city and immerse themselves in the creative universe of Heineken Thirst and bring their music experience bursting to life.”

One of the place that I have heard quite alot is this Sanbanto restaurant that serve premium pork. They do sell fresh pork meat on the spot and you can dine along in this little restaurant that have limited capacity. I have actually visited their 2nd outlet before heading to this one which is The Pork Place located in Puchong IOI Boulavard (click here for review). Its actually one of my favourite there, but find out there slight in consistency yet still good on overall.

Sunbanto (1)

Sunbanto (2)

As you walk in, you will be greeted with fridge filled with pork meat from all sort of part that is available and the price of pork in here is slightly above market rate but you can see the quality of meat is there.

Sunbanto (3)

See what I mean . . .

Sunbanto (4)

Sunbanto (5)

In Sanbanto cafe, you can also choose what kind of pork meat you need and cook instantly. You can choose from all available parts.

Sunbanto (6)

Pork Bacon sandwich was a total let down that they are like using Gardenia bread, bacon is over cook.

Sunbanto (7)

Sunbanto (8)

Sanbanto Bacon and Cheese Burger @ RM 17.00 (Sanbanto Home Made Patty with Straight Cut Fries). Not bad, as the patty is soft and just nice

Sunbanto (9)

Pork Bolognese with Home-Made Pappardelle @ RM 17. I have tried this in another branch and the taste is there. Like it and its the best among the rest.

Compare with both branch, I prefer the other outlet in Puchong – The Pork Place where I find that their food is much better than this outlet.

Last long weekend over Raya, had nothing much to do and decided to drive to Klang met my friend for a simple meal hunting. Of course when you are in Klang, one of the thing to hunt is definitely Bak Kut Teh. As my arrival around that area for lunch time, to get the best Bak Kut Teh is surely out of topic, as far as I know those famous one usually have to go early morning and even sold out before 8am, was introduce to Restaurant Qe Xiang.

klang bkt (1)

Well, my friend brought me to one of her favourite outlet, Restaurant Qe Xiang that is located in Bandar Baru Klang that is actually not that far off from Federal Highway. She told me that, last time this outlet operate in small outlet at the same spot as recent years, they only expended with build up of front portion.

klang bkt (2)

Its one of the place to get Bak Kut Teh during lunch hours as this outlet operate from 8am-3pm

klang bkt (3)

Just only 2 of us we order 2 pot with dry and soup version.

klang bkt (4)

As the dry Bak Kut Teh we order the soft bone part and the meat is braised till soft and gravy is thick with dark soy sauce. A bit spicy at the end as they added chili padi, and I think I had better ones in Puchong.

klang bkt (5)

Here comes the soup Bak Kut Teh as I am surprise by the generosity of ingredient that the serve along as I ordered mixture. Soup is less herbal as I always prefer mine to be thick in Herbal taste but taste for people around here, they prefer less herbal. Soup is a bit thick with sign of boiling quite a while with all the meat being in there and its sweet.

klang bkt (6)

Multi layered pork intestine. Good!

Bak Kut Teh here is surely not one of the best, yet I do not mind to come back here again for another round as the price are pretty reasonable with 2 big pot for 2 of us with 2 rice, and drink is about RM38. Soup is refillable upon request.

On the 6th Day which is another shopping day request by the Girls, so we cancel all our sightseeing and spend our time mostly in the prime area for malls and the first stop for the day was MBK mall that we spend 5 hours there, from 10am – 3pm.. So walk around as everyone is very hungry and and saw this irresistible deal. Eat all you Can at ShabuShi Restaurant.

Shabu shi (1)

Had a quick breakfast in the morning and as all of them shop till forgot the time and stomach start growling, all of us start to hunt for food till we come over to this floor on the exit side we saw this sign – EAT all you CAn buffet.. every one say..go eat this one, damm hungry.. cow also can eat.. So we went in, and was request to use the front entrance. . .

Shabu shi (2)

Shabushi is a Restaurant offering Japanese Shabu shabu and Sushi for customers to enjoy at a very cheap rate I would say.

When we reach the front entrance, we were like OMG..so many ppl..siau eh~ and took our number, was told to wait 1 hour to come back, so we went to continue shopping and came back an hour after that.

Shabu shi (3)

Its a crowd mixture and one of the main thing that attracted so many people was the price of the buffet which is quite cheap. If I am not mistaken it is about 250 bhat nett per pax (if I remember it correctly) with given 90min/120 mins to dine.

Shabu shi (4)

We storm into the place and quickly place all our things on the table and start to attack on the food as given such a short time frame.

Shabu shi (5)

They have sushi bar counter seating or group seating with conveyor belt offering all fresh steamboat ingredients.

Shabu shi (8)

Many types of drinks available. . .they also have desert corner which I forgot to took a picture of it. .

Shabu shi (6)_resize

These 2 cha boh attack on sushi counter very fast, with offering of lots of sushi and even salmon fish head also available.

Our soup was clear soup and spicy that taste pretty good though

Shabu shi (15)

Tatt and Steven was taking care of our dining table and by the time we went back to our table, it is already full of ingredients waiting to be pour in.

Shabu shi (16)

Shabu shi (17)

This piece of meat is good with marinated sauce and corn in it. .

Shabu shi (18)

This is how pack our table is. . . The best part is on the conveyor belt, the chef was standing there and we were the last table on the corner and whenever he put new ingredients, we took all of it and till a certain time, he got piss off cuz other customer could not enjoy it and he went to the front to put all the new ingredient…kekekek~

Shabu shi (19)

This is how we eat our steamboat with Malaysian Culture and every one that walk pass by our table, look at us like dinosaur, as our eating steamboat habit is definately different compare to the rest of the people there.

Then after dining, Goft only told us that this is one of a famous Japanese steamboat buffet in the mall that attracted alot people go. If got chance when you are in Bangkok and would want to try something different, try out this Shabushi, value worth and the ingredients are all fresh and good! – REcommended!!

we had a very satisfying lunch that last us till late dinner. 😀

One thing is that you cannot compare the pricing and quality to Malaysia restaurant cuz they enjoy lesser taxes and that’s how Thailand industry grow so well ..

It has been quite a while since I last step into Gurney Plaza on its basement level that filled mostly with F&B outlets. Last round when I went back, while accompany my friend shopping my friend suggested this Xuan Xin Ramen Kitchen that its pretty good. To me, its like another new shop!

xuan xin (1)

Seeing this place so pack on odd hours as in 3pm and its still full house, then told my friend no problem, lets go especially anything with Ramen which is one of my favourite.

xuan xin (3)

xuan xin (4)

There are quite  a number of Ramen to choose from and price of it are pretty reasonable. Most of the Ramen selection I would say a bit in fushion style.

xuan xin (6)

Sze Chuan Dan Dan Ramen @ RM 11.80 that usual will served with lots of peanuts in the noodle, soup taste a bit spicy and thick.

xuan xin (5)

Compare to another choice, the rest of us prefer Ramen with Sze Chuan Soup @ RM 11.80. Love the taste of it, sour more than spicy also soup its a bit thick and starchy that comes to my liking. Recommended~

xuan xin (7)

I have eaten quite many Shanghai Steamed Dumpling and find that for the price of RM 5.50 which will be very precent compare to alot other restaurant. Skin might be slightly thicker compare to the others, soup base in it and texture of the meat is good!

I could say that, I certainly do not mind to return to this shop again to try out other of its range.
