To most of us, Jaya One is no longer a place which is a stranger to us, which is currently now hosting a lot of restaurant, café’s and Bar in that building itself. If you do not know what to eat or having headache on variety, take a stroll around the area that you can find variety of food range available.

One of the latest editions into the family is The Bee which just started their operation about 3 weeks and the crowds already start to love this place.

Bee

Most of us do watch F.R.I.E.N.D.S as they usually hang out in a café, but what I feel The Bee has is that similar kind of concept which is a perfect place gathering place for friends and colleague.

Bee (2)

I love their interior that really portray classic style café that I have went when I was at Melbourne, build up with red brick design and coffee counter with cake display fridge and a mini menu of food to choose from.

Bee (3)

A mini bar table type area with wifi and plug available for your online convenience.

Bee (4)

One thing that I love about their concept is that this cake display fridge is that they are going to feature most of our local bakers to sell in this fridge as part to promote local baker talent.

 

Bee (5)

They have not really launch the place yet and this is their only temporary menu.

Bee (6)

With currently limited choices to choose from but will be more starting from June.

‘Dukkah Prawn Salad’ RM16

If you love salad for lunch or dinner, then I would say you will surely fall in love with their salad range. Fresh salad that dress with their very own, homemade salad dressing, top with fresh grilled prawns is something I enjoy.

Bee (8)

If you want more healthy or diet meal, then ‘Roasted Pumpkin Couscous Salad’ would be the preffered choice also caught my attention more, RM18 comes with fresh softly baked pumpkin with their own seasoning to enhance the flavor up and sprinkle with the white crumbs(which I forgot the word), and I just can finish this alone. –Recommended~

One of their in house specialties ‘The Bee Burger’

Bee (13)

With their very own handmade beef patties which is certainly well mince, grill till its soft and juicy then baked with a layer melted cheese on top of it and its nice! – Recommended~

Bee (10)

‘Huevos Rancheros’ wrap with egg, bacon, melted cheeze, sauces, then perfectly toast till the skin is crispy and solid yet not burn with bacon is very aromatic, and so far it is the best I had. – Recommended~

Bee (11)

‘Ebi Fry Burger’ is something unique that I came across.

Bee (12)

Deep fried Ebi which the prawn is solid and fried perfectly add in with their own salad dressing to make it juicy, worth a try.

Bee (16)

‘Chicken Avocado Burger’ with chicken grilled to perfection coated with cheeze.

Opening Promo – ALL burger and drink for RM15 (which is certainly a great bargain)

Bee (14)

‘Deep Fried Ebi’ is something have not include in the current menu that would be added in their new menu very soon. The unique is the sauce that by dipping in it, our tongue get to taste sour yet sweet and spicy and its good till we dip it the whole sauce dry.

Bee (17)

‘Churros’ is something that I tried at Victoria market and not many people enjoy this desert which is very new in Malaysia, as I love to have mine, cripy on the outer layer and very soft in the middle then sprinkle with with cinnamon sugar is good~

I love this place and certainly, to all those who love burgers, go after their burger range which I felt very delectable as the catch is they have hired one of a very famous young lady chef from Australia to prepare the café’s menu and train their chef, thanks for hosting us that night.

I have heard a lot about this restaurant about their food quality and the best part is food from Taiwan. I just do not know why when mention about food from there, I would like woaahhhh, its like when people mention about Penang = Food. The term for me is Taiwan = Food as this would be my very first visit to this restaurant, Din Tai Fung.

This is their newly renovated and just open its door to public just before Chinese New Year with having another outlet they have is at Mid Valley, which I had walk pass a lot of times and its always full. To my surprise, this restaurant was ranked as one of the top 10 restaurant in 1993 by The New York Times. Not only their outlet in Malaysia, as their franchise spread over to Australia, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, and the United States.

Din Tai Fung

All the chef are busy preparing the Xiau Long Bao’s in the open concept kitchen.

Din Tai Fung (2)

With all the ingredients are prepared and measure correctly to ensure their food quality is there. What I was inform that, they do have daily QC check by their master chef as to ensure that their taste is the same and fresh ingredient are used to get the satisfaction out of it.

Din Tai Fung (4)

The new outlet interior design which is another total new concept that very different from the branch at Mid Valley as that branch with more of its crowd are family and the new branch decorated with modern classic style on the front section and the back section is all about back to the past with contemporary interior. . .

Din Tai Fung (10)

Start off the meal with their cold appetizer.

Din Tai Fung (11)

Din Tai Fung (12)

This arrangement of tower is the ‘Japanese Cucumber’ had been season a bit and its very crunchy covers in a very very mild taste on your tongue. RM3.80

Din Tai Fung (13)

‘Taiwan Century Egg’ as the texture of it is different, softer and the egg base is very nice in taste eat it with ginger is the perfect way to start off with. RM3.80

Din Tai Fung (14)

‘Spicy Jellyfish’ is served cold and I love the texture of it which is chewy and covered with the taste like mild thai sauce yet it’s a bit sour, definitely appetite opener. RM6.80

Din Tai Fung (15)

It’s the same like Hong Kong or China food that they do have ‘Chili Oil’ as to accompany some of the dish to pull up the flavor of it.

Din Tai Fung (19)

In Din Dai Fung, all QC and staff training is regard as priority to ensure customer satisfaction, as the focus a lot on staff culture and ethics had been professionally trained as this girl is send by the Taiwan HQ to trained on all the new staff and making sure that everything is in order, as this is to ensure that their brand name served with tip top condition and all the branch you go around the region is the same.

Din Tai Fung (16)

‘Crab Meat & Pork Xiao Long Bao’ served next as it was perfectly steam and the soup in it is hot filled with the juices from the steam that ooze from the pork in it. Very sweet in taste yet a bit salty that stuff in some ginger with vinegar, it tastes perfect. RM12.80(6 pcs)/ RM23.80 (12 pcs)

Din Tai Fung (17)

This is the way how to pick up a Xiao Long Bau with the tip of it so that you wont damage the delicate yet soft skin on the side as you can drink on the soup too.

Din Tai Fung (18)

‘Shrimp and Pork Dumpling’ is huge and stuff with compact ingredient. RM12.80(6 pcs)/ RM23.80 (12 pcs)

Din Tai Fung (20)

This soup get me all excited as it smells so good. When the cover was open up I was like haaa…?? So simple yet so aromatic, ‘House Special Chicken Soup’ had been steam in high temperature for 4 hours using Kampung Chicken with a proper arrangement of the meat in the bowl to enhance the maximum taste of it and cook with some simple Chinese herbs. It is something very simple yet the taste is top notch, and burning hot with the way just as I preferred. RM13

Din Tai Fung (21)

The chicken had been boiled till very soft and dip it with simple soy sauce. It taste good.

Din Tai Fung (22)

I am a big fan of ‘Hot and Sour Soup’ as no matter I spotted this, I would order, just a big fan of this soup. In Din Tai Fung, the soup is RM7.50 for small and RM11 for big. Its mild in taste as it suits people who do not like strong taste yet can get to enjoy hot (which is not too spicy) yet the sour is vinegar side yet the texture of it is just nice, not too starchy.

Din Tai Fung (23)

‘Cha Jiang La Mien’ is done very nice with serving for a simple dish that top with mince pork, taufu and peas as some soy and chili oil added in.

Din Tai Fung (24)

The trick to eat this noodle is to add on some vinegar instead of chili oil as it totally taste different and much better. RM12

Din Tai Fung (25)

‘Pork Chop Fried Rice’ as the fried rice is simple but fried with wok hei and the egg taste is soft and blended well with the rice, with the perfect deep fried pork chop eat with chili oil is excellent. RM14.50

Din Tai Fung (26)

‘Baby Green Beans with Mince Pork’ as if you eat it randomly like that, it would taste abit salty but a perfect companion for rice. RM16

Din Tai Fung (27)

Even though we are full, there are always room for deserts as to me, I find this desert quite special as its in the form of Xiau Long Bau, as the back basket is ‘Mini Sesame Buns’ RM5.50 and ‘Red Bean Dumpling’ RM7 (6pcs) / RM12.80 (12 pcs).

It was a great lunch and informative too from the great host Meng Lim and invites from Sidney. Of course, I will be returning to try out their other dish.
