Previously when I was introduce to Anuar’s Fish Head Curry & Indian Apam at Lucky Garden, I was told that this malay food stall also offer great food. Decided to come by since I am on my way back to ease my cravings for apam. Yusof Tomyam is another stall ad the far end that enjoys good business at night.

bangsar (1)

Its funny to see how the guy look at me while eating. .  I can see in the kicthen its operate by young malay chef and its quite busy in there with a few chef in a line.

bangsar (2)

 This is one of a very traditional Indian apam next to this Malay stall that I am craving for.

bangsar (3)

Since I was told that thier Tomyum and fish range are a must order then I ordered Ikan Bawal Goreng Tiga Rasa. When it was serve, the aroma of it is so fragrant and can still smell the freshly fried fish smell. The fish is fried to perfection that the skin and tail is so crisps that shower along with this gravy that is so fragrant, with light spicy and sour end. The more I take on the gravy, the more spicy it had become as it cook along with chili padi. NExt is  telur bistik which I forgot to take picture on. Egg fried in gravy that pair with my rice perfectly well.

Here comes the Tomyum Chicken. Loving it as it has well balance of spicy and sour to my liking. Chicken is soft that they did not over cook it.

Overall if you are asking me where to get nice Halal food or nice malay food in Bangsar, certainly this is one of the stall that I would be recommending. Decent pricing and the food is above average.

Bangkok Trip – After spending 2 hours at Pattaya Floating Market, then we are heading down to Pattaya town to further discover the place. . .

bkk day 3 (1)

So the driver told us that this temple is very nice and decided to drop us here for a quick prayer and we did also with some donations.

bkk day 3 (2)

bkk day 3 (3)

Further inside the city its like super long beach covers along with night entertainment which I will put inside another posting (so do watch out)

bkk day 3 (4)

Last time I remember I came accross a blog that there is a new mall opening and with huge open air concept area for F&B outlets by the beach side facing the sea and I could not remember what is that mall called already. Regreted didnt key it down and we ended up in this new mall Central Festival at Pattaya which is the Largest beachfront lifestyle mall Shopping Mall in Asia.

bkk day 3 (5)

Very nice Interior and well design mall, easy to walk around ..

bkk day 3 (6)

Best of all they have like indoor weekend market style ..

bkk day 3 (7)

After a quick walk, we were very hungry and head out, manage to peek outside the mall that they have a street of kopitiam style food and we quickly head there to hunt for food. There are about 9 stalls side by side and one of the stalls that attracted us in is PORK LEG!

bkk day 3 (8)

They are hot, thirsty and hungry . .

bkk day 3 (9)

this is the super star that makes us choose this stall that comes to Thai must not miss Pork Leg

bkk day 3 (10)

This is the most sinfull of all yet one of the best!!!

bkk day 3 (11)

we ordered one stripe of fried pork as I choose myself what part I wanted and its super crispy, the meat is soft and dip along with their own homemade sauce is superb! A MUST HAVE!

bkk day 3 (12)

Then followed by Pork leg, braised till meat is soft, pork skin near to melt in mouth and add in their own gravy to make it more moist.

bkk day 3 (13)

Tomyam seafood as we find that the different taste of Pattaya cooking style and Bangkok cooking style as Pattaya taste of soup heading  more sweet and sour not too spicy. .

bkk day 3 (15)

Tomyam pork definitely taste much better compare to the seafood one.

bkk day 3 (14)

Fried Omelet that is drench in oil yet very aromatic and we add on a bit chili sauce to perfected it. .It was indeed a satisfying meal . .

bkk day 3 (16)

As everyone is very satisfied now, we head to the beach area to take a peak as we have very limited time in Pattaya .. .

bkk day 3 (17)

Feels like I am at Batu Ferringi just that they have lots of beach umbrella side by side .. .

bkk day 3 (18)

bkk day 3 (19)

bkk day 3 (20)

bkk day 3 (21)

AS the weather is killing us, all of them want to head back to the mall then only we saw superb architecture of Hilton hotel that overlook the beach front which is inside the Central Festival Mall.

bkk day 3 (26)

One of the thing I realize is that this little desert stall is every where in Bangkok and also even in Pattaya, Ice Monster, that I often saw alot people queuing for it. As this round we nearly melt from the weather outside, we decided to try out by enjoying the mall air condition.

bkk day 3 (27)

Under customize section, you can get to choose the ice and toppings you want as we are lazy to choose we choose the one in the menu.

bkk day 3 (28)

bkk day 3 (29)

bkk day 3 (30)

bkk day 3 (31)

Overall, we didnt really like the desert as find it a bit too sweet to our liking, very milky and the texture is more like Ice Kacang ice based top with some fruits and milk/ chocolate syrup.

Christmas is around the corner and many people are gearing up to prepare and cater to this happy celebrations of the year as you can see malls already filled with decorations and what is lacking is only food! As for this round, we are very happy to get specially invited for a home cook hearty meal preparation.

Ann is a entrepreneurial lady cum self learn chef had turn her home into a place to specialize cater for private functions that her intention is to create quality food instead of quantity food. You can expect the best from her few signature dish in her list and usually what customer do is that they give her a budget and just ask her to prepare all her signature dish.

What is well prepared for us for the night is all oven baked specialties. Baked potatoes with capsicum .

homecook (7)

Baked Tomato . .

homecook (3)

Star of the night is this huge Pork Roll that had been specially hand pick by the chef to cook the best for us.

homecook (4)

Roast to perfection with the skin is so crunchy even with the knife cut thru it, it had a huge crack sound eccoed in the room and every one is just staring at it, just waiting to get a taste of it. Aroma of roast pork filled the room that makes every one even more hungry. The meat is so soft, juicy and the skin is crispy with a bit saltiness where it is suppose to be.

homecook (5)

For just 1 Pork Roll, it is enough to cater for 10-12 pax and depends how you cut it. It cost about RM160 per roll and have to book in advance.

homecook (1)

Next, we were showered with Lamb that had been slowly cook in the oven with her own special herbs that ensure the taste soak inside the meat.

homecook (2)

Such a huge chunk of meat and after cutting it, the meat certainly does not look dry and the smell of the oven baked lamb meat when she cut it off smells wonderfull

homecook (8)

This gravy is one of the secret to make the lamb even more nice.

homecook (9)

The homemade sauce is perfect that is not too thick, filled with a bit black pepper taste that pairs very well with the lamb.

homecook (10)

This is my great dinner for the night with juicy lamb and soft meat pork  . . .

homecook (11)

And lastly to get the satisfaction kick in, we get to enjoy Lemongrass drink which is just perfect to end the meal . .

After this meal, I certainly know that where to get one of the best prepare homecook meal and also knowing where I can host my private functions in the future. She only cater 20 pax max in one session, so that every one able to enjoy her food. The best part is, not only you need to go over to her private kitchen, you can also hire her to your place and cook provided you meet all her kitchen requirements on the order you place on the day!

Certainly, this is one of my recommendation for food if you want something unique . ..

Road trip for food is definitely fun, especially when you go with a bunch of all hungry eaters that are responsible to eat and pay only, as on the way up north to Penang, we decided to do a little food hunt in Ipoh for early breakfast at Foh San (富山), and I have dine before at Ming Court Dim Sum which is quite disappointing  . .This round, we all agree to try out the famous Foh San Dim Sum which I heard so much over other bloggers or they rate it as best dim sum in Ipoh.

fu san (1)

We reach around 11am and there are still strong crowd inside the restaurant, with many people waiting for tables, as I have heard that strong crowd will pour into this outlet as early as 7am-9am which is the  most peak. .

fu san (2)

They used to operate in a smaller building as their business boom that had attracted many people from near and far, this is the new restaurant outlook which had expanded to 2 times bigger compare to their old outlet according to my friend.

fu san (3)

Modern tea house with nice floor titles, wooden chairs and marble and wooden tables are all well place around the restaurant. Now in order to get tables for pax of 10 person, all of us spread out equally into 4 sections, 2 at the bottom left and right and upper floor left and right. It really depends on your observation and luck to get a table, as you have to monitor your table closely with other public customer around too. . .

fu san (4)

If you come at 11am, quite a number of items are sold out, which is some of their signature item . .  will come back again for next round . .

fu san (5)

As all hungry eaters are ready to hunt for food and this plate I do not know what’s the name, its like a pao and sprinkle with pork floss, taste a bit dry and not my choice of item . .

fu san (6)

‘Malaikou’ is one of the best I had so far, super soft and spongy, and great in aroma . . have to eat it while its hot.

fu san (7)

Water-chestnut cake a bit more like jelly and slices water chestnut inside is fresh and something to eat after your hearty dim sum meal as closing ..

fu san (8)

 

fu san (9)

A simple delight that must not miss is Siew Mai, Har Kau then followed by some corn pork dim sum . .

fu san (10)

Pai Kuat

fu san (11)

Chicken Feet

fu san (12)

 

fu san (13)

 Lai Ngau Pau – is pronounce something like that, which is a must eat item! this was the last piece I manage to get as the pork meat melts in your mouth and the gravy inside is just nice to make it perfect! highly Recommended. . .

fu san (14)

fu san (15)

Loh Mai Kai

fu san (16)

fu san (17)

Porridge is also one of their signature which is also a must have item to try, as the texture of it silky smooth, mild in taste and just add a bit of soy sauce is just perfect. Highly recommended

fu san (18)

Fried loh pak kou, not many restaurant can fried this evenly and nice, as this restaurant is exceptional that fried till some edges are a bit crispy, not too big piece and got wok hei . .

fu san (19)

fu san (20)

fu san (21)

fu san (22)

fu san (23)

Their Egg Tart turns out to be impressive too, crispy side soft egg yolk spread in the middle. .

fu san (24)

By the end of the day, we were all very satisfied with this meal as we rate this one of the best Dim Sum so far we have come across, fresh, and not only that, the most important is their price which turns out to be pretty cheap, as we paid only around RM18 per pax for alot of dish!

Now only I understand why so many people flock to this restaurant, even I did a road trip down to Ipoh just to eat this dum sum and they like it, and ask when shall we drive down again. No doubt that this is one of my recommended Dim Sum place if you do pass by Ipoh.

It is very funny that how year 2011 suddenly boom with so many international franchise bubble milk tea in Malaysia, especially those brand from Taiwan. First start off with Cha Time, Gong Cha and a few more brands from Taiwan, then come Ochado from Japan and now Dong Cha is from Hong Kong.

Dong Cha (1)

Whenever I drop by IOI Mall Puchong, I tend to try out this brand more and found that they have some good drinks. Dong Cha is located at the Ground Floor of new wing in IOI Mall, nearby the escalator.

Dong Cha (2)

Dong cha have something different compare to other bubble milk tea outlet is that they have this little snacks, Wagashi that is made fresh right in front of your eyes that is a assorted hot cakes filled with different fillings in it.

Dong Cha (3)

I read in the net, saying that Wagashi is from Taiwan that makes a little combination of Taiwan and Hong Kong in Dong Cha.

Dong Cha (4)

They have a few flavors and size to chose as in this picture is the Jumbo Wagashi

Dong Cha (5)

  • Jumbo Cream
  • Belgium Chocolate With Cream
  • Italy Coffee With Cream
  • Matcha Red Bean With Cream
  • Peanut Cream With Mochi

Dong Cha (7)

quite a huge range of drinks to choose from in Dong Cha.

Dong Cha (8)

Compare with other outlet, I like their Moose Tea which the tea flavor is more thick, the creamy filling that mix along does not make it too milky and its just nice. If you are saying Moose tea version, Dong Cha stood up.

Dong Cha (6)

Price is very reasonable and for around RM5 you can get a big cup already.

Dong Cha (9)

Then Kelly have never tried this brand of Milk Tea before, she decided to give it a try. End Result, my fav brand still the best in Original Pearl Milk Tea.

Dong Cha (10)

Kelly and her drink

Dong Cha (11)

And as we were very full from our dinner, we opted to try the Wagashi in smaller version.

Dong Cha (12)

No doubt that the aroma of the Wagashi is very very nice in smell, texture is like cake and do not eat it while it hot, just let it cool down a bit and it will taste much better. We tried, their Original Flavour, Chocolate and Peanut. I like Peanut and Original flavor more.

Well, its another bubble milk tea brand for you to try out.

When comes to the word ‘Pork’ a lot of my friend would say, please please, take me to where is the best pork that they can hunt. Then one of the place that I have heard so much which is the best, legendary, caramelize, one of the recommended is this shop that located at off Jalan Pudu, behind Shaw Parade which is known as Wong Kee Roast Pork (siew yuk).

meng kee (2)

This place is always packed.

meng kee (3)

meng kee (1)

Then my friend told me that, this owner is actually a ‘Datuk title’ or a place mostly you can see political people dine in this shop and do bare in mind do not piss him off, that being a Hainanese their mood sure do swings alot ..  and me being hainanese I don really understand the terms but seems mostly older generation they do have that serious mood swings including my dad. Well, cannot denied that he really do good roast pork . .

meng kee (4)

This is one hell plate of a roast pork that most of my friend crave for that they are only here for the ROAST PORK, with its SUPER crispy skin, perfectly well balance fats and lean meat in between, once put into our mouth, I just love the strong aroma of the well roasted crispy skin saltiness, and the fats just melts in mouth.

To enjoy this savory roast pork, it comes to a hefty price, that our bills comes to RM50 with this 3 plate of roast pork and 3 plate of rice. Seriously NOT CHEAP! Still, it attracts many people for near and far especially my boss.
