I guess for the pass 6 months is the big buzz off Burger and Cafe. In KL we have quite a few famous one like MYBurger Lab or street Burger Kaw Kaw (which is now overrated) with different version of it. In Penang Island, Marshall’s Burger had been a hit for the past 6 months with them starting selling burger at the road side in Pulau Tikus area, opposite Belissa Row that you will not miss a long queue at night after 8pm, this would make them hold the title Penang Best Burger. Not only that, the best part is they sell pork too.

Marshall's Burger (1)

Few months down the road, now they have successuflly bring the brand to another level by operating in a shop lot at Burmah Road or next to Penang Plaza.

Marshall's Burger (2)

A shop that filled with simple decoration in a old building with wooden menu that place all their signature burger on the wall.

Marshall's Burger (3)

Sitting place in here is rather limited as I was highly advise by my best friend to head there early, and I was lucky that they do operate for lunch on Weekends. as for weekedays only at night.

Marshall's Burger (4)

Marshall's Burger (5)

Menu is rather straight forward with few choices to choose from or different meat.

Marshall's Burger (7)

People like me, sure will do add on’s

Marshall's Burger (8)

Onion rings are pretty good by frying to perfection that its crisp inside out with Marshall special sauce, its like a combination of bbq with light sour sauce, will pair very well with beer. .Ended up order another portion  RM 6.50

Marshall's Burger (9)

The Biscon with 2 beef patty, 2 cheddar cheeze and [email protected] RM 15.80

Marshall's Burger (12)

Classic Beef @ RM 8.90

Marshall's Burger (10)

For pork lover, you can opt for this .. The Boar that comes with 2 patty, 2 cheeze and bacon @ RM 16.50

Marshall's Burger (17)

Here is my special verison of burger as I order only The Bull – with 1 beef patty and cheddar and I add on with 1 pork patty @ RM 6

Marshall's Burger (13)

Then we deconstruct the beef patty . . .

Marshall's Burger (14)

Grill till the meat is just nice, not too dry yet not too solid as in between have slight airy feel. Just nice.

Marshall's Burger (18)

here is my pork patty and I find beef taste better.

Marshall's Burger (11)

Those who do not prefer beef or Pork you can go for chicken which is Bacon Special Chicken Thigh with a cheeze and patty @ RM 8.90

Marshall's Burger (15)

The burger is pretty good and their amazing signature is the sauce that makes the whole thing different. Only set back is the bread that  they are using, not so fluffy and its doesn’t taste fresh. Sauce is good and if they can intorduce another 1 or 2 more then its perfect.

For this kind of price, its definitely a great bargain, and will surely return again.

If in Penang its will be a top  notch place and good enough to satisfy your burger craving. Please do not compare to other joint in KL.

My friends are all a good fan of this brand.

I believe many of you that head to Melacca/ Melaka will stop by at this famous mille crepe that is always pack with people (click here). Well, good news for many of us that now the famous cafe had expended its wings to KL and being their first branch, Nadeje now is open at 3 Two Square, PJ which is nearby Jaya 33.

Nadeje (1)

In the premises itself, the cafe is located inside one of the lot and if you are coming in thru Toyota Entrance, that would be the most ideal entrance to hunt for this cafe.

Nadeje (2)

I have heard some of my friends that they have to queue for quite a while and as long as 30-45 minutes for their cakes. I guess luck is on our side when we reach its only 2 person away and within 3  minutes we gotten our cakes. Its a weekday lunch. 🙂

Nadeje (5)

concept of their cafe in KL is totally different compare to their main Branch in Melaka. Its more contemporary design and seating are pretty limited with only 4-5 tables in door and another 3-5 more outdoor.

Nadeje (3)

In this cafe mostly are cakes and coffee are available, more like a tea time hunting ground or craving for dessert then this would be one of the option.

Nadeje (4)

Nadeje (6)

Not only that, as this round I notice that they have doughnut added into their range and as usual, there are many choices of crepes to hunt for.

Nadeje (7)

Nadeje (8)

Nadeje (9)

This is my crepes for taking away as usual I prefer their Original.

Well, people, now you need not drive all the way to Melaka to hunt for your favorite dessert shop as now they are open in this area for less than 10 days.

This place is totally new to me as Nicole told me she is gonna bring me to her favourite nasi lemak stall in Uptown I was like, “huh, there got famous Nasi Lemak one meh?” she said yes! just meet her there and I could not even remember there was one located along the stretch of HSBC. Have not met her in ages as she is busy travelling around and its a great to see her again. Village Park Nasi Lemak is one of a famous nasi lemak that gain huge popularity.

village park (1)

It is a place surely to  impress and I was here at lunch time. Its chaotic in Uptown as to find a parking spot at this time is your worst Nightmare!!! The only choices is to double park and being risk of either being kena Saman or Tow away. Be sure that you are there to monitor your car. I have seen a group of people came out from a restaurant and looking for their car as I saw their car got tow away.

village park (2)

Its amazing to see how this shop got huge coverage on media and not only that. As behind the payment counter you can see some celebrity and even our PM, ex PM Tun Dr Mahatir and many others came here to dine before.

village park (3)

Well, parking is not only the thing you have to be concern at as inside the shop is also chaotic, as the queue on this rice counter had build to outside and customers are pouring in.

village park (4)

Look at the Ayam goreng is just so tempting.

village park (5)

and my friend told me this is one of a must have!

village park (6)

Prices are slightly a bit more expensive for a plate of nasi lemak cuz you are dining in a restaurant.

village park (7)

This is how full house it would be and many other people behind me are waiting too.

village park (8)

This is a portion that according to my friend their signature ‘Nasi Lemak Ayam Goreng’ @ RM 8. Something simple yet delightful, as rice is fragrant with light santan taste, fried chicken is nice and I would love to have mine with the extra crispy left over from the fried wok. Sambal is not bad as I prefer it to be more spicy and I was told that it used to be spicy and due to general taste bud, they have tone it down.

village park (9)

Kangkung Belacan order extra for side dish.

If you start comparing, I would compare it in this way, as Village Park Nasi Lemak they are cheaper than any malls restaurant that have to offer and taste much better or one of the best so far. If you compare with the makcik pakcik little stall on the road side, cant be comparable as those are street food category and of course their price is much cheaper and you can find a few stalls that taste better than them.

As this place is not that far from my place, I find that the price and quality is pretty decent. Been returning for couple of times already. 🙂

Just barely a few weeks old and this place already got a massive publicity. One of the reason is they are the first Ramen restaurant that serve Authentic Kyushu Ramen in Malaysia, as actually means Tonkatsu that boil their soup with pork bone. There are already quite a number of Ramen shop popping up and as a Ramen lover and have tasted very nice ramen overseas, hope this Yamagoya Ramen will fare pretty good too . .

Yamagoya (1)

Not only that, what makes them special as they are also the first outlet of the famous Japanese Chain Ramen Restaurant as they have more than 140 outlets in Japan and this shop had landed in Malaysia as currently operating in Publika, Solaris Dutamas would be their very first outlet.

Yamagoya (2)

As I saw on the wall and people coming into this shop and dine with Chinese Newspaper cutting as I believe some chinese food writter had came by to feature on it and we came in as early as 7.30pm and its full till we left 10.00pm and there are still people coming in.

Yamagoya (3)

Yamagoya (4)

Their ramen is made fresh daily and they weigh the ramen accordingly on the machine to ensure that all are even.

Yamagoya (6)

Here you go, with some choices of the ramen available as this shop purely serve ramen .. .

Yamagoya (7)

This is one of my favourite drink that I often used to drink it as my lunch drink when I was studying overseas that time. Its Calpis WaterRM5.80.

It is a uncarbonated soft drink as the beverage has a light, somewhat milky, and slightly acidic flavor, similar to plain or vanilla-flavored yogurt or Yakult. Its ingredients include water, nonfat dry milk and lactic acid, and is produced by lactic acid fermentation.

The drink is sold as a concentrate which is mixed with water or sometimes milk just before consumption. A pre-diluted version known as Calpis Water “Karupisu Wōtā” (カルピスウォーター?), or its carbonated variety, known as Calpis Soda “Karupisu Sōda” (カルピスソーダ?), are also available. It is also used to flavor kakigori (shaved ice) and as a mixer for cocktails and chuhai. (Source from Wikipedia)

Yamagoya (8)

AS a ramen shop, these few sauces its  a must have to make it complete, as I usually like to add in alot of chili oil . .:D

Yamagoya (9)

As a starter, I rarely miss this order Gyoza @ RM 11. If the gyoza is pan fried a bit longer at the bottom till the skin is crips, it can be one of the best so far I have come accross. . .

Yamagoya (10)

This might look like one of ordinary Fried Chicken as the taste is just amazing. Squeeze it with lemon to get a hint of sour taste and dip with Japanese Mayo and the soy sauce at the bottom makes it perfect in taste as the skin is crispy and the chicken meat being fried just perfect as the meat is not too dry. Guess what, our table ended up ordering 3 plates of this. RM11 – highly Recommended!

 

Yamagoya (12)

One of my favorite is to get eggs in my ramen as this is Yamagoya Braised Soya Sauce Egg. If the yolk is not so cook it would be a perfect pair, still good in taste, no complain . [email protected] RM4

Yamagoya (13)

When comes to pork, we will never complain more which less is just only the factor. So we ordered additional 2 plates of Pork Char Siu as this side dish is serve cold compare to the one added into the Ramen. Different in taste though as I prefer mine to be dip into the [email protected] RM11

Yamagoya (11)

If you love garlic taste then this shall be one of the ramen you should hunt for – Black Garlic Ramen @ RM22. Garlic taste is pretty strong in the sweet soup base as just how I like it. – recommended~

Yamagoya (14)

Menma Ramen @  RM22

Yamagoya (15)

Mukashi Special Ramen is a bit mild in taste, with the broth soup that they add in just suits many people taste bud. How I make it more interesting is by adding alot of chili oil then it adds in the kick for me. 😀  RM24

Yamagoya (16)

Fuhhh, one of the super star on our table is this Char Siu Ramen. The strong sweet taste of soup base makes us fight for this bowl of Ramen filled with thin slice of Char Siu. I just love this bowl of soup base.  @ RM24, highly Recommended!

Yamagoya (17)

Another one of my favourite is Spicy Tobanjan Ramen @ RM 22

 

Yamagoya (18)

Well, do not expect the spicyness level is the Malaysian version as remember its authentic from Japan and Japanese taste bud on spicy level is very much different compare to our local palate. After put it in, it taste pretty good and by one scoop of spicy paste you might find it not too kick, why not add in another paste that would have been perfect. (beware that you might spoil the authentic taste of it if you add in 2 paste).

By having one paste it just make the soup a bit spicy and aromatic.  – Recommended~

Yamagoya (20)

A bit of infuse ramen which is Kimchi Ramen, a more korean taste. @ RM22

Yamagoya (21)

There are only 4 of us in the table and look at the amount of Ramen we whack! Its just something I could not resist as this shop have currently top in my list if I am craving for Ramen because of its ramen texture and soup base. Well, if I have to compare to the one I have overseas still cannot be compared and talking bout local, this would be one of the best so far. Would be a highly recommended shop by me. or currently one of the best ramen shop in KL.

REMARKS: please eat the noodle what its serve hot, as the noodle is springy and smooth.. If you leave it a while or more than 5 minutes soak in the soup, the noodle texture had change and become soggy.

Anyone of you can think one of the best Japanese buffet spread available or to recommend? This is the constant question I got asked by my friends as they know I always hunt for food. Well, one of the restaurant I can remember was this restaurant Jogoya Japanese Buffet  which offers a huge Japanese Fushion Buffet that located on the top floor of Starhill. My last dining experience in this restaurant was 3 years ago where Jogoya was the most popular buffet spread available that often customer are spoilt with their huge selection, which I think offer more than 100 types of dishes.

In Jogoya, if you are a VIP member, you get to try out some special food selection compare to other normal diners as they reward more exclusive range that will be given a certain numbers of special receipt to clip on and drop to the bowl.

Jogoya (1)

As 3 years ago, this restaurant also offer one of the finest quality in buffet spread as overall they fare pretty well. As time pass, I wanted to visit this place again, alot people told me that their standard drop had then stop me from re-visiting not until recently, friends came down from Penang and requested that they wanted to dine in here. So, here we go again on coming here enjoying this buffet.

This round I am not going to write alot but to spam alot of pictures on what is available in this restaurant.

Jogoya (2)

Their interior design of the place is very cozy, filled with hard cement flooring, filled with wooden chairs and tables… Dim orange lights are shine towards each individual tables that provide you a cozy dining experience.

Let’s head what is available in the store:

Jogoya (9)

always in Japanese food, the first section that every one will attack is this sashimi area which filled with lots of raw food.

Jogoya (10)

Fresh Oyster. . .

When you are in downtown shopping, in Pavilion, there are something new for you guys to explore is the newly renovated Tokyo Street located on the 6th floor in Pavilion. Its a section that house many Japanese eateries, Japanese products and some house hold goods for you to explore. After they have open quite a while, this is my first time being here and SukiYa is one of my favourite.

sukiya (1)

Under this section, the whole area is filled with Japanese ambiance with their look and feel of all those outlets.

sukiya (2)

The outlets that are in the middle section are all mostly build with Japanese wooden concept, and lanterns at the side of the shop.

sukiya (3)

sukiya (4)

Most of the restaurant here sell fusion food  . ..

sukiya (5)

Japanese Desert – Mochi Sweets.

sukiya (6)

Another Japanese Restaurant .. .

sukiya (8)

As for this round, we are trying out this outlet that offer buffet spread which is Suki-Ya : Eat all you can Sukiyaki & Shabu Shabu, which is more like a Japanese Steamboat. . .

sukiya (9)

The ambiance is not bad that is pretty well design that if you come in big group they can combine all the tables for you in one section.

sukiya (10)

Sauce wise is pretty limited in selection . . .

sukiya (11)

Healthy bar that offer a good selection’s of greens to be put into shabu shabu . .

sukiya (12)

sukiya (13)

sukiya (14)

There are only 3 choices of soup available, Shabu-Shabu which is more like a clear soup and I heard the table next to me mention that the soup is tasteless. . .then we opt for Sukiyaki and Kimchi Soup.

Among the 3, Sukiyaki is the best as the taste of the soy is pretty strong which reflects to the original taste I had before, not too salty and its quite aromatic. .  Recommended among those 3. . For Kimchi, under Japanese restaurant.. not as good as you tried in those Korean restaurant. So close one eye .. .

sukiya (15)

sukiya (16)

Then on the paper they teach you all the steps how do you do the best shabu shabu out .. 🙂

sukiya (17)

We opt for the healthy options and pour everything in . . .

sukiya (18)

Then you get free flow of thin slice, Lamb, Beef and Chicken . . .The best of all is Lamb follow by Chicken then Beef as the beef slice I find it taste funny or we rate it as a low grade beef slice!

sukiya (19)

For beef slice, its pretty simple and quick that you just take a slice and dip it for about 10 seconds then its done . .

sukiya (20)

Then we had the sauce as the Sesame sauce is GOOD that you must request and normally I eat most of my food with their special homemade chili sauce.. A bit sour, chopped with lots of garlic and a bit spicy, that pair well with all the meat that I have. ..

My friend taught that, take a raw egg and stir it well, then after the meat had cook, dip it and eat along with any sauce it just perfect!

sukiya (21)

Then would let you finish off with Ice cream . .

The service here is good as they have alot of staff on duty and our slices of meet constantly got refill and the best part is the manager drop by and ask you, do you want more refill which we had raise white flag as this would be the first time that the staff ask do you want more!

For a price like this in Suki-ya I would say its a buffet spread that worth a try as it only allow you to enjoy 2 hours dinning which is far more than enough.

Adult (lunch) – RM 29.80 ++
Kids (lunch) – 50% disc off buffet price

Adult (Dinner) – RM33.8- ++
Kids (Dinner) – 50% disc off buffet price
