I was out for Sunday lunch to Low Yatt that Simon the founder of Blup Blup and we were shower for token of appreciation by being a member of Blup Blup, they had organize lunch at EspressSOUP, and treat all the members a meal which is more like a mini get together.

Most of us when we head to dine in any restaurant, soup comes in a set or we would order the soup separately if we find that the soup we want is not in the list, but one of the owner had come out with this idea that why not soup for everyone? By creating idea to life, this is how EspresSOUP been set up, and that made them the first Soup Kiosk in Malaysia.

This is one of their signature bread that they are using this farmer bread which is made of wheat and rye flour that is oil, sugar and preservative free. In the Kiost, there are a few choices of soup to choose from and other food like sandwich and spaghetti.

‘Clam Chowder’ which is creamy and can taste the clam in pieces, dipping it with bread its good.

‘Mushroom Soup’

‘Pumpkin Soup’ that I had made the wrong choice on the bread, which me and my friend think that, if put mushroom soup in would taste much better. The bread is a bit hard is to hold on the soup in there.

Then you cut it ooze out from the bread its like a burst dam, then you cut the bread into pieces and dip along to eat.

My favorite hang out area, Alexis at Bangsar especially craving for the Tiramisu cake combine with the Mocha there is the best combo. Like this place a lot especially is not too big, just nice, not so much crowd and pretty cozy area to go for my fav desert but for that day, not really hungry so kidnap my friend along to accompany me to eat.

Like this wine rack which I always think will I ever drink that much of wine?

As I am quite hungry so the first item to be order is of course ‘Clam Chowder’ which cost RM16. The soup is thick and creamy, shower with quite a lot of clams and the taste is just so good and the piece of garlic bread makes it a perfect combination.
Saw the table besides us order ‘Garlic Bread’ charge at RM8 which smells very nice and rich in garlic aroma, I also order one lah~ But I tell you, the garlic bread is toast to crispiness on the side and soft in the middle, the garlic spread on top of it and the first bite on it will make you finish the whole plate~


My usual that I would rarely miss to any kind of restaurant when look at Spaghetti section is of course the Carbonara. The order of ‘Spegitti Carbonara’ cost RM 32 . With the price on this plate of carbonara I honestly think its quite expensive with the bacon serve some mushroom and spaghetti. Not the type of carbonara I crave for. This is not very creamy and its near to dry, yet of course do not want to waste the food so finish the whole plate la.

Last but not least, the only thing that must not miss of course their ‘Tiramisu’. The outer layer is filled with crunchy nuts and when comes to the inside, its so soft when you eat it, it melts inside on your tongue. The taste of the cheese, the coffee on the cake and some of the chocolate taste just poison you that make you enjoy every single bite of it. The strawberry syrup is just for the added taste. If you like it you will or you will just ignore it. Highly recommended – RM15

It was our buddy B’day Gay Keong and CB Kenny. They came down to KL to celebrate with the rest of us for lunch, dinner and club 2 weeks ago. So for the lunch it was arrange by my bestie Yeong Yong to head here because of the prank they can put on both of them.
For their lunch they have of course the 2 course meal promotion for RM29.90 which had been going on for quite sometime already which we think the food is not bad so going back for lunchie~ Where you get to choose one dish from the Appetizers and 1 dish from the Entree.

We combine up our order and share share, so the first appetizers is ‘Boneless Wings’ dip with their very own traditional spicy Buffalo sauce. When it was serve, we do not really have the urge to eat because it looks it had been left aside in the kitchen for quite sometime and the looks of it very soggy. It was not spicy and a bit too sour but it dip with the sour cream taste so so onli.

This is always our high time favourite if we do visit here. ‘Fried Mac and Cheese’ creamy cheeses and elbow noodles golden-fried to perfection.

The taste for that day was pretty disappointing. It was well fried but inside, the cheeze was friend nearly dry and the elbow noodle was totally dry where you put into microwave to reheat your food where usually we it, when we cut it, its pretty cheesie and flowing down to the plate~
Next is the ‘Clam Chowder’. Which is find its the best compare to the other 2 as it is hearthy, creamy blend of celery, garlic scallion and potato lightly seasoned with pepper and rich with clams.
The soup is creamy and the ingredient in there is blend of celery, garlic scallion and potato lightly seasoned with pepper and a bit of clamp. But overall, it goes pretty well with the taste. We were very happy of this appetizer. The rest.. *shake head.

After our disappointing appetizer and cross finger to get a better 1 for entree. The first dish is ‘Sizzling Chicken and Cheese’. It was very appealing at first but the taste of it was not as expected to what is on the description and the thing is, the portion is seriously small. In this pic might look big because its taken near. If you take the piece of chicken breast and compare it with my stomach its like onli 1/4 of it. The mash potato is a bit tasteless, onion was not deeply fried, the chicken breast is overcook. Hopeless dish again!

Next was ‘Cajun Shrimp & Chicken Pasta’. One of the okay dish of it as just ngam ngam creamy, after you stir it the sauce is gone, it got ‘serap‘ into the fettuccine. Theeere are a few pieces of chicken cubes and shrimps. Nothing much to comment on.

Follow by the ‘Jack Daniel ‘s Chicken’. Haiyoooo, tis is by far the best of all, the chicken breast is grill just perfect, a bit golden brown, the breast is soft wont be so meaty and the sauce that pour on top of it, is just so good that every 1 of us have not enough and thought of ordering another 1.

The next dish that serve is ‘Fettuccine with Chicken’. It was abit dry but the taste normal. The chicken stripes were quite generous and okay lah…don know what to say.

The last of the entree would be the ‘Club Sandwich’ if not mistaken. This is one of the best dish of the day. The bread is toast to perfection till the crust and outer layer of the bread is crispy. The bread in the middle is soft. They were never cheapskate on putting in the ingredient, the breast meat is alot, some bacons, mayo, cheese and other’s with the sauce all added up, can just saviour it instantly.
After eating session, I was fast fast told to arrange to deal with the manager there to give them a surprise. After they were clearing the table plates away then a few minutes after that, suddenly a group of ppl sweep across by their table and surround them. They were told to stand on the chair and to introduce themselves to every 1 of us…They si pek sporting, directly jump onto the chair…So let me intro for you, this 2 are our Birdie Brithdayyyyyy Boi~ Gay Kiong(in white) and Chan Tou Nam Kenny.
Then comes the supervisor to brief them…’Lai lai, now u guys have to use this salt and paper bottle to treat this at the mic. Then you have to either, share or sing to all of us. Ah Keong was like, an chua.. let me go first laaaa, you better say later la..si lang Kenny.!!’
So there goes gay keong(actually his nickname we gave him) talk talk talk and bla bla….

Then Chan Tou Nam…*fast forward mode …..talk talk talk and bla bla.. After talk talk talk and the best part of all, the second part, DANCING!~!~!~!~
Then here comes the gay Keong performing, as we told Chan Tou Nam better not, cus you are too fat, later you broke the chair we have to pay. So he is the pole and Keong, perform his best…
Making the crowd go while. All of us was like going crazy..with gayness keong swaying so sexy..
lol~
Then the manager told them, not yet finish…..In order to get this complimentary cakes, you guys have to do 1 task. You guys have to blow the candle from the distance we placed.
After announce, Keong was like ‘Oh SHIT!!..How to blow? Kenny no eyes see…
We were all like, blow la blow la..got free cake eat..at the same time pity them also, have to blow till their face ‘bin che che‘(hokkien) – face green green~
So before all the blowing get’s going, so they Birthday song singing….
Follow by our very birthday wish tradition. We at the bottom there helping them say Keong – I want to be Sushi King and please give me more idea of how to be more gay if needed. Chan Tou Nam – how i want to grow my stomach, don want to be Chan Tou Nam, want to be Santa Clause.
After that, cheng cheng cheng…please welcome our very first participant to blow the candle. Chan Tou Name.
First attempt, sucking all of the air in and trying it for 1 blow…no effect….if for me, I’ll faint.
2nd attempt, better, the light of the candle moving abit..!! We were like cheering down there. Chan Tou Nam!! Chan Tou Nam!! Chan Tou Nam!! with our fork and knife.. 3rd attempt he manage to blow it.
Keong is more daring. Like monkey directly climb accross nearby and blow it in 2 attempt.
This is what we manage to get, a complimentary cakes by TGI for Birday Guy/Gal. If you were to celebrate your birthday there, please do not ….I mean please do not miss this piece of cake. It is so addictive that from your first bite melting in your mouth with the chocolate, the ice cream, the cakes in it just bring you the satisfaction. The best of all!!! Don know what is the name called but its highly recommended.
With Yeong and Siew Li sitting another table and scolding us that. STOP TEMPTING US!!!!! We are trying to be on diet. In the end they also cannot tahan and join to eat..wakakkaka~~~~
The food for the day, can say like 75% disappointed with the quality that they serve. Can just say that, it was the worst of the time on so many occasions. We think that the chef had PMS!
