In the holy month, there are of course many restaurant taking this opportunity to run a promotion. One of a late discovery for me that I just realize, Bali Hai had open in Kota Damansara for nearly a year now. This is pretty well known brand for many Penangnites for its fresh seafood that available in the stretch of Gurney Drive. I often dine there, and till last week only found out about this place. Many people have mix reaction on their food quality. I still trust them my trust for fresh seafood.

There is 2 row of shop houses sitting right in the middle of the whole neighbourhood in Damansara Heights, you will be spoil for selections of what to dine in this area. Not only that, its an area also pretty well know for Happy Hours with a few bar is in this area. The Full Moon Bar is no exception from that too.

[No Longer In operation] – currently is Huckleberry

Moon (1)

Operating about a year plus, it had start to gain popularity around the non muslim as this is one of a only very few outlets that serve Pork. With hot weather recently, its a great bonus to discover that they are serving set lunch now starting from RM12.90.

Moon (2)

Moon (3)

AS the night is young, we are serve with their signature Mojitos.

Moon (4)

We get to sample some of their signature for the night that starting off witha platter of Spicy Fried Chicken Wing, Black Pepper Lamb Parcels, Fried Breaded Mozzarella and a skewer of Roast Pork Belly and Chargrilled Honey Lime Chicken. 

Moon (5)

If you do hang out at the outlet for beers, then Roast Pork Belly and Chargrilled Honey Lime Chicken will pair very well with it as the marination of both dish is very well done and cook to perfection, along with the chicken is fried till crips and aromatic.

Moon (6)

Next we were told to challage on this dish with its excessive spiciness level  is Butter Briyani Rice with Spicy Sri Lankan Tamarind Pork Belly and Mutton Varuval.  When this plate is serve, the aroma of the curry and spices filled up our nose instantly. First few bites of the briyani rice is bursting with spices and flavours are awesome! Then after that, I am burst with excessive spiciness that just hit hard on my tongue. Love the taste of the spiciness, but not really a fan of cloves as they cook pretty much in it. If they tone it down, then would have been a perfect dish.

Both Pork Belly and Mutton are cook to perfection with the curry are well marinate and coated on the meat. Taste of Mutton is more outstanding than the pork.

Moon (7)

As the days pass, the demand of  Hokkien Mee for supper is pretty good. With consumption of beer into our belly, the version of Hokkien Mee is shower with alot of Chu Yau Cha (Pork Lard). If you find that the current serving is lack of  it, you can just order extra Pork lard at RM 4. For a Bar to cook Hokkien Mee, I must say its pretty impressive!

Moon (8)

Not only Hokkien Mee in Demand as their Bak Kut Teh is also another popular dish among many people who are looking for supper in the outlet.

Moon (9)

Broth been cooked for hours to get the best taste of it, and do note that the taste of the soup here is not strong in herbs as customer here prefer mild version.

Moon (10)

At the end of the meal, we were pamper with Cheng Yi (Fatboybakes) cakes. As always, his cakes never dissapoint us and always on top notch. If you do plan to order, can check out his website. fatboybakes.blogspot.com

Moon (11)

If you are lazy to drive far and staying around the area, then Moon Bar might be one of your choice with add on bonus as on Friday nights. With veteran jazz pianist David Gomes and friends, known as the ‚ÄúDavid Gomes Trio‚ÄĚ, will entertain all of you for the night.

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.

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.

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 . ..

The funny thing is that, when May Ling ask me to join her for dinner and told me the name of the restaurant I was like hah? again and again. .. as the restaurant name is called Ricetaurant which is located in Bangsar Village 2 which I cant even remember when is the last time that I came here.

The changes here is quite alot that now host quite a number of nice cafe’s and restaurant in this building.

Rice Taurant (1)

Get to know one of the reason that why the restaurant is name like that because of Asian’s culture that most of us need to have rice on most of our meals.

Ricetaurant offers best of dishes around the region that makes it a bit fusion style.

Rice Taurant (2)

I like the restaurant design in such a way that, it looks like a small little hidden cafe in some ally when I was in Melbourne, with tree trunk and very classic kitchen utensils to be party of the design.

Rice Taurant (3)

Rice Taurant (4)

The place is not big, but good enough to provide us a very comfy dining space, with paintings on the wall and open space kitchen right in the corner.

Rice Taurant (5)

I like their menu, it reminds me when I was in primary school on maths homework exercise  book. Price wise is pretty decent which is not too over price with their portion being served.

Rice Taurant (6)

1) Apple, Elderflower and Lychee – just a perfect drink that blend till just perfect that I can taste the apple skin and very tiny small cubes of lychee – Recommended

2) Hainanese Tea

3) Pineapple, Orange and Mint

Rice Taurant (7)

Chinese Olives & Seafood Fried Rice smells good, that already know enough ‘wok hei’. The rice were fried till perfect dry, very fragrant in taste and just find that the black pepper taste slightly over power the overall taste. If they reduce a bit, it would be perfect.

Rice Taurant (8)

One of my favourite of the night is Teriyaki Chicken, which had been marinated very well, then cook along that the chicken is soft and every piece that I bite, the chicken is well coat with the sauce. Recommended

Rice Taurant (9)

A plain simple fried rice, that lean towards very simple chinese style is Chicken and Long Bean Fried Rice. Very mild in taste yet fragrant in wok hei and if you eat along with some curry dishes, just good enough to be satisfied for me.

Rice Taurant (10)

Another star of the night is Claypot Chicken, Yam and Dried Prawns in Nam Yue Sauce. Cook so well that the gravy is just thick enough, and some yam that just melts along with it, with cubes of chicken is soft and perfect to eat along with rice. – Recommended

Rice Taurant (11)

Sweet and Sour Fish

Rice Taurant (12)

If I am not mistaken this is Belacan Fried Chicken which is out of my expectation, fried crisply and by dipping with the sauce adds a bit kick but I still think eat it plain is much better and along with any of the fried rice.

Rice Taurant (14)

If you love cuisine from east, then this is another must order dish –¬†Ayam Percik with Nasi Ulam

Rice Taurant (15)

The trick is, you must mix everything up Oxtail Asam Pedas, Sambal Belacan, Salted Egg, Ulam-ulam, Salted Fish and then eat along. Taste is pretty authentic with the ones I have tried before.

Rice Taurant (16)

After we are so full, I still decide to try out their Black Sticky Rice with Coconut Milk. Sticky enough, as the black stick rice cook till its soft and its a suprise that they add in lychee that makes it natural sweet on fruits, as I have always like mine to mix along with coconut milk which makes it perfect. Not many places I get to enjoy this and certainly this is one of the recommended desert for me.

After the whole meal, we are just satisfied and surely we are going to return for more, as most of the dish here are quite authentic and nice.

It is quite surprising that my friend told me there is a place that offer good coffee. Then he just said, lets go and try it out. Based on the location given, I find it very weird as it leads me to residential area and no sign of coffee place to be found and asked the guard he told me is correct and I just park my car in the covered area free parking (which is super good). Ristretto

[UPdate: NO longer in Operations]

Risseto (1)

Once walk along the sign, really there is a hidden coffee shop which is known for Risseto with a very coffee joint that offer at foreign country, its simple and relaxing place to have a cup of coffee.

Risseto (2)

Not only that, they do offer quite a huge range of coffee and one thing caught my attention is Soya Latte which is one of my favorite that not easily available in KL, then food range is quite impressive too for a small cafe like that. They do cater alot for the residence around the area or I would say more like a neigbourhood cafe. .

Risseto (3)

Potato with Ham Salad

Risseto (4)

Club Sandwich is certainly one of it to consider .. .

Risseto (5)

Black Pepper Chicken Burger

Risseto (6)

Chicken Hamburger with Egg

Risseto (7)

Char Koey Teow

Risseto (8)

Nasi Lemak with fragrant rice and with the spicy sambal is good.

Risseto (11)

Meatball Arrabiata

Risseto (12)

Risseto (15)

Risseto (16)

Wild Berry Cheeze Cake

Risseto (17)

My coffee for the night was Top left to right : Long Black, Cappucino, Flat White and unique order Soy Chai Latte, as the spices of the chai is not that strong, and its recommended to those who have not tried before.

Risseto (18)

What we tried is also coffee liquor Mayan Coffee, Irish Coffee and Guinnesss Coffee. I would say that I do not know how to enjoy these coffee. ūüėÄ

It had been so long that since I last step into this shop as it was not until recently I pay a visit again. No doubt that they do have their signature roast chicken which is a must try item when you are in the shop. Kenny Rogers

As for this round, I head onto their latest promotion that caught my attention with Chicken and Pasta Meal promotion. Looks huge in size that makes me think, will I be able to finish this dish?

Usually with limited edition menu, there must have limited edition drinks also. I grab myself with Minty Green Tea Mocktail (RM7.50) as I always love green tea. Taste is quite refreshing and with strong hint of mint flavour that might have overpower the taste of green tea. Love the gassy taste of it.

Then when my friend ordered Minty Passion Mocktail (RM7.50) I find that this had taste better compare to the other one.
