Browsing

Tropicana is one of my favourite mall for movies based on convinience in parking, much less people and cheaper by 10%. One of the reason its nearer to my house and office. Well, there are actually some eatery in Tropicana that serve pretty decent food that I small little shop that I have dine pretty often is Tuan Yuen that serve Taiwanese food at Lower Ground, same area as Tea Chansii or Carrefour Level.

[UPdate – No Longer in Operation]

Bare in mind that Taiwanese food are mild in taste, not as heavy taste as our local food.

Taiwan (1)

This little shop is a small family business that operate by both the ‘tau keh so’ and her son along with 2 worker. The owner herself is from Taiwan that had migrated to Malaysia and starting up this business to promote Taiwanese food. Since I came back from Taiwan, this is something that is quite near to Taiwan food taste and sadly to say she is tweaking the taste to suits our local taste bud.

Taiwan (2)

Price is pretty decent that starts from RM7.50 and quite a huge range of Taiwanese food that you can choose from.

Taiwan (3)

One of my favourite is the dumpling that you must order, Me and ken love it alot as we find its pretty similiar to Taiwan. Something simple to start off with.

Taiwan (4)

Taiwanese sausage is pretty simple and direct whereby you can eat it in most of the night market . . .

Taiwan (5)

Taiwanese Style Extra spicy Beef Rice @ RM 11.90

Taiwan (6)

One of their signature is this Big Meal Beef Noodle, Extra Spicy @ RM 11.90 that I often order. Colour of the soup gives you the impresion that its not spicy and after a few sips of the soup, it will make your tongue numb as, spiciness are more towards Szechuan style. Loving it~ noodle are not cook consistant as it is suppose to be smooth and thin while eating and it have to depends on who cook it. If cook by both the owner or the son it taste good, and if its the worker, it would be usually overcook.

Beef slices are soft and goes well with noodle. They do prepare tissue for you on the table for you to wipe your sweat off. :D, Those who could not take spicy dish, it is not adviseable to order this, or maybe you can request the owner to toned it down for you.

Another thing that its a must order in here is their Winter Melon Tea. One of the best by far that I often came here to make a take away. I personally feel that it beats any of the bubble milk tea shop out there.

One of my personal fav Taiwanese shop.

A roast peking duck that just roasted pipping hot from the oven with the skin so shinning and when I was capturing this, I was swallowing my saliva with its aromatic smell that hard to resist.

When this lady cut on the duck skin, you can just hear the cracking sound of it, it means so fresh   and I just wish that I could steal one slice to put into my mouth first.

Not long after we were seated down, then the table was bombard by all the variety tim sum, while we were busy taking pictures of it, it never stop till the whole table is full, then I was like Wow! Wonder how are we going to finish it.

ZuanYuan (9)

In this buffet I got shock that we get to order ‘Steamed Seafood Dumpling with Superior Stock and Shark’s Fin’ or as the picture below. I love this very much, with its strong taste that been steam for long time, and the seafood dumpling remains soft and filled with ingredients. Recommended this compare with another one.

ZuanYuan (10)

‘Braised Shark Fin’s with Crab Roe’ is a bit starchy and added on with vinegar, it just taste awesome.

ZuanYuan (11)

I just like their vinegar taste that make the whole soup so nice.

ZuanYuan (12)

‘Water Prawn Noodle’ is served next in the set menu with a plate each. Chewy juicy prawns hints the freshness of it and end with an egg top on it.

ZuanYuan (13)

The ‘Chili Oil’ is something that I constant attack on, as its very fragrance, a bit salty and with dried shrimps and not very spicy.

ZuanYuan (14)

‘Pan Fried Shanghai Dumpling’ I always bite open the tip of it and stuff it with Ginger Vinegar that served upon. Just loving it as its been pan fried well on one side of it.

ZuanYuan (15)

ZuanYuan (16)

ZuanYuan (19)

‘Steamed Prawn Dumpling’

ZuanYuan (20)

As I always love to have my plate of ‘Barbeque Char Siew Chee Cheong Fun with Sesame Seeds’ added with their chili oil…

ZuanYuan (21)

‘Shredded Dried Scallop Chee Cheong Fun’ as when bite on the scallop its juicy and springy, like the feeling of it.

ZuanYuan (22)

‘Flaky Barbeque Char Siew Pastries’

ZuanYuan (23)

Certainly this taste unique as ‘Taro Dumpling Wu Kok Style with Scallop and Miso Sauce’ the sauce itself had blend in well with the taste of the wu kok, a bit salty and crispy edge.

ZuanYuan (24)

‘Deep Fried Prawn Dumpling and Salad Dressing’

ZuanYuan (25)

ZuanYuan (30)

With every Tim Sum that I always go, I must always end it with their desert range. With this two Behind: ‘Double-Boiled Crystal Pear with Fresh Ginseng, ‘Chilled Aloe Vera Infused with Lemon Grass’ as both were rather chilling and refreshing, which is good for me to cool down to get the satisfaction of it. Surely a must have desert to end off your meal.

It was a great new discovery that with just only RM48++ we are getting such luxurious range of it. Definately I will be coming back for second round~ is available on daily lunch from 12pm – 2.30pm.

Last round went for costume hunting for company dinner, and we were short of time due to traveling time then for the past round that we went there, we saw this shop that its kinda pack with people and might thought that, hrmm…would be a good place to have lunch since the price is quite cheap. Chong Ko Hakka Noodle

I am not a big fan of hakka food, but then still acceptable as did try a few disappointed restaurant and also good ones.

Chong Ko

Chong Ko (3)

‘Original Hakka Noodle’ is something plain that add in with some mince meat and small cubes of ‘chu yau’ which taste something simple and clear. RM 4.30

Chong Ko (4)

‘Curry Chicken Hakka Noodle’ Would be one of my favourite, not so thick curry soup base yet the santan is not so thick too, the flavor of the soup is just nice yet the chicken meat is soft. I just wish that my bowl is added on some pork balls. Yummm~ RM4.80

Chong Ko (5)

‘Pork Ball White Noodle’ with the look, I have underestimate the taste of it. Among all, this would taste the best with its thin noodle compare to the rest which is the thick one. Springy like wan tan mee noodle, with mild taste of the soup and I just love their pork ball, solid chewy type. RM 4.30

Chong Ko (6)

That is why we order another bowl of ‘Pork Ball’ RM 3.50

Chong Ko (7)

‘Dumpling’ is nothing to praise on. Just a normal one. RM 4

With the price and the food in this area, I would say its very reasonable and no complain.

Of course after lunch, I will always make noise for desert. Choe told me, don worry, its just directly opposite. By reading in Melaka also famous for Durian Chendol, she told me that this is the best place to go.


Being weekend, every where is just damm packed with people.


In the menu, surely its my type of preference filled with desert.


The rest waiting and camwhore abit. Then the next shelf to us is the place selling sweets and local snacks. Ended up Kenji bought a big Lolipop.


‘Durian Springy Dumpling’ caught my attention. I think whatever with durian I am just going to order. RM2.50

Cold skin and soft texture had make you bite like cotton and its not durian purree its like durian kuih inside. To me its like eating durian Kuih in cold version.


‘Refreshing Essence Lime with Liquorice’ RM3.90. By the name is self already proof its a refresing drink. Totally recommend this for such a hot weather.

Jeng Jeng Jeng…here comes one of the local favourites enjoyed by alot of people. ‘Durian Cendol’ RM5.80. Its refreshing soft icy that will just melt in your mouth and the best thing is the keharum’ness of the durian they added in is just veli good ah. Abit bitter in taste that goes along with the sweetness of it. Just perfect.

We ordered another bowl and told Jonathan that we wanted to add more durian in there, then he told us they say cannot add. DOWN!

Then I went out, saw this this stall looks quite tempting and buy 1 piece only. The promotion is buy 5 free 1 if not mistaken. Since I cannot finish and just wanted to try out 1 only.


The fish is call ‘Amoy’. hahha… means girl?


Insert with kaya, and its best to eat while its warm. RM1.50 per piece.

Camwhore session, have you ever seen a ghost licking lolipop… ?


tu dia… Karen looks like a ghost in this pic. 😛


Me trying my best~

This stall is located opposite the Chicken rice ball.

If you are looking for other sweets to buy, this is the shop to go. Directly inside the cafe.
A great place for the desert.
