[Remark] Its just so funny to see how I write a food blog post 3 years ago as this post was written 2009. Because of the pictures was deleted in blogspot now I have re-visited this place to make it available again. One of my favourite mee goreng – Mee Sotong place.
This is one of my favourite mee goreng stall or I would rate the best Mee Goreng in Penang, came back a few times, but did not manage to eat it, cuz it was close on Sunday and usually came back for the weekend and today, the crowd was suprisingly alot. I mean DAMM alot. I have to wait for 1 hour and 15 mins for this because it was holiday season. Wrong timing to eat.

The pricing consider one of the very reasonable that they are offering with the portion being served. There is usually a queue when you go at, wrong timing. This is the crowd that ta pau, have not include the crowd that are dining in.Those people that ta pau were at least 4 packs and above. Celaka

Tadaa…this is the ‘Mee Goreng Sotongthat been served. My favorite. Tambah Pedas pedas. Even though I cant really take spicy but to the hack, it taste bloody nice. The first 3 mouth I am already sweating like crazee, it is just worth the taste. Alot of sotong on top, taste a bit sweet and you have to stir the whole plate up. It has the ‘wok’ taste, not too dry compare to those like eating dry noodle. It only cost RM3.50 for this. (Now RM4)

To those who could not take spicy noodle yet would want to enjoy this famous mee goreng, you can go for one without chili. Usually anything without chili is quite blend in taste. This plate of noodle is flavorful as they are fried with their own special sauce in it and mixture of sotong pull up the taste.

I guess there is too much food to choose when you came by in a mall, not until my best friend Kheng came down to KL with his wife then they tried on first round and told me the next day during yam cha session, Bok, got one restaurant served very nice Thai food – Just Thai , you must go try. . . then I said, kia, we go again second round and to my surpise he agree. . .

*note: missing out some price and dish name (lost receipt) 😀

For me, I did not know that there are such a nice Thai restaurant located inside 1-Utama New Wing even though I walk passby 1000 times and don even bother to take a peek until I was brought here.

Just Thai which is located at the Lower Ground Floor which is directly opposite Speedy Video shop that offer great ambiance of dining with more contemporary style instead of Thai deco.

Just Thai with their quote Hospitality with a heart . . You judge yourself ..

Prize in this restaurant are pretty decent with their portion and taste.

 

Thai iced tea @ RM9

So what chu waiting for. . lets take the fork n spoon and lets eat. . .

Simple stir fried veggie was fried very aromatic and the gravy is just perfect to go along with rice.

Thai Otak-Otak which I hardly miss when comes to Thai Food, with seafood along with finely chopped coconut meat, with the gravy coated on each piece of the seafood and I kinda like it too . . .

Signature FirePot with Tomyam (4 pax)  is the star of the night. Quite spicy, and sour as me and my friends like it to be. Recommended~

One of the dish I seldom order locally because not many places can fried this very good as it cook along with basil leave till a bit dry in gravy, that makes it one of my favourite and do not know what struck me, I order this and turns out to be not bad. . .

Green Curry Chicken as up to my expectation with creammy type of curry and chicken meat was soft and eggplant did not overcook @ RM 15

Water Chestnut with Coconut Milk is not bad, a bit too sweet for me. .

Mango sticky rice with steam the rice first and mango is nice just that find the coconut dressing a bit weird in taste.

Overall, we had enjoyable time at this restaurant. . .which is my friends favourite restaurant.

Last weekend, we went down for a short weekend to Melaka and the hotel we stay is superb, Philea Resort (which will blog bout it soon) and while in the resort we skip out for a while before dinner time to hunt for some light food. Jason introduce us this place which is flock by alot people around the town area and also as far travelers from out station. Original Klebang Coconut Shake.

After reaching there, we were a bit curious what is so good about this drink which so many people are queuing up. Then we join the crowd also to see what is happening.

Jason told us that this place started off with just a very small stall and after his coverage in paper and blog, their business had a sudden boom which makes what it is today.

According to him, they are the first to do coconut shake and they have their own style then ask us to judge ourselves what is so good about it.

Starting of with ice pack in a blender, then a few scoops of ice cream, then coconut water then a mini cup of sugar syrup.

Blend it n crush it with with coconut meat that place at the bottom . . .


Then pour into this tube machine. . .

pour it out cup by cup and it looks something like milk shake .. .

You can have it either Coconut Shake PlainRM 1.80

Or Coconut Shake SpecialRM2.30 with additional scoop of ice cream.

The taste of it is quite thick taste like milk shake at first and the more we sip the more normal it taste like and the ice did not crush properly and ice is a bit harsh, actually there is nothing to shout about something simple and I still prefer my Penang style Coconut shake (click here) with a plate of mee sotong which is a RECOMMENDED PLACE if you visit Penang.

So if judge it yourself lahhhh.. and be prepare to wait for 20-30 minutes in line for this cup of drink as we felt its not worth the time to wait.

Revisit this restaurant as it has been years since dine in here. It was about 4-5 years back when my buddy’s sister brought us here to eat and as I remembered it does not look like this. They have renovated. Decided to try again here.

It was during in the afternoon lunch time, so there were not much people in this restaurant but it is sure nice to sit and chat with friends here. From the food wise, I would rate it something like Madam Kwan.

In the drinks menu, what caught my attention was this, ‘Coconut Mint Float’. Something unique. If you are here, I would highly recommended this drink. Has a scoop of ice cream and blended of the coconut meat and the taste of the mint and coconut goes along very well. Was not too sweet, just perfectly good for a refreshing drink price at RM8
For the ‘Chicken Chop Set’ comes with a bread. The bread was warm and just toasted but it do not have the bread taste and smell. The bread is not nice. Taste so plain even with the butter.RM15.50

The chicken chop sure do look very plain. It is like you can get it in any of the roadside or coffee shop western food. Looks even better. It is perfectly fried with the crust is crispy. The chicken cooked is soft on the inside. The veggie is nicely steam.

My order is the Nasi Bojari. I can’t take beef so change to curry chicken piece. I must say that this is a bad food. To compare with Madam Kwan, it is 10x much nicer. The cannot be denied that the chicken is nicely fried but it has a strong chicken smell, which did not wash properly and it was very salty. The curry chicken is so thick in ‘santan‘ taste which make it a bit too sweet for it. The ‘Nasi‘ is very dry and very salty also. I think the salt in the restaurant is very cheap. The prawn was not fresh and I did not finish this dish. Total FAILURE and it was very expensive. RM21.

Since the chicken chop is so dry and did not comes with a gravy so order the ‘Mushroom Sauce’. In my life I have never eat before such a bad mushroom soup. Which the taste has very strong Chinese herb in it. Do not taste anyting like mushroom soup. More like when we have fever and you go to Chinese medicine shop and you boil it. Here, drink it all. Something like that. It cost RM3
‘The Cendol is a complimentary from the Chicken chop set. The taste of it is not bad especially the brown sugar syrup but the sad thing is the ice blended out is so rough that the more you take, it might damage on your upper throat. If you were to order it cost RM5

Well, for lunch it was a bad experience for the whole food which compare to 4-5 years back they are much nicer. So will temporary BANNED this shop at the moment with its pricing I would rather go somewhere else to have a better and nicer food. The bills comes in total around RM57.
