Lets head for the first appetizer and when it was serve it create alot of curiousity among all of us, as we were guessing is it Pau? then turns out to be Mashed Potato @ RM6.90. Its unique in taste as they add some spices in it.

plates n bottles (16)

For Mushroom Soup lover and you love it thick and creamy, then I would suggest that this is amust order soup. Its quite thick and dense with blended mushroom in it. @ RM7.90

plates n bottles (17)

We started off with oriental cuisine and first to arrive on our table is Drunken Prawns. By smelling the aroma of it, we are already half drunk and cant wait to dip our fork and soup by having sip of the soup base. Aroma of the rice wine is just perfect that trails along our nose. Strong with herbs taste with chinese wine at the end is just perfect with rice and prawns were fresh!  @ RM16.90

plates n bottles (18)

One dish that surpise us is that we thought that Honey Chicken is quite a normal dish, and turns out to be that it was cook to perfection that its moist and very well caramelize on the meat with sprinkle of sesame seed. A bowl of rice is perfect companion.  RM11.90

plates n bottles (19)

Made from scratch as first made from soy grinding  then  mold it and deep fried. –Homemade Tofu @ RM9.90

plates n bottles (27)

Curry Pork @ RM10.90

plates n bottles (21)

Sambal belacan with ‘4 types of Vege’ that have long beans, ladies finger(okra), petai (stinky beans) and egg plant(brinjal). Another dish that fried to perfection with ‘wok hei’ and did not over fry it. Taste is quite solid and by eating it like that, it definitely will give you more towards saltiness and spicy. @ RM9.90

plates n bottles (23)

Salted Fish Pork Belly 咸魚花腩 (ham yu fa lam) @ RM10.90. A well balance dish with hint of sweet, spicy ,salty, cook along with thin slice pork belly is something you would not want to miss. Highly recommended!

plates n bottles (24)

Something that I used to cook alot in college days is  Braised pork belly Fried Meehun @ RM7.90. Something delicious and simple. Its another nice dish to hunt for in here.

plates n bottles (22)

Spaghetti Meatballs @ RM15.90.  Meatballs that made in house is something special, not solid yet pan fried by inside meat still moist and juicy with hint of herbs and black pepper detected. Spaghetti is al dante and creamy enough to my liking. After that they serve only the meatballs and it was gone instant seconds.

plates n bottles (20)

Something light, you can opt for Grilled Chicken Spaghetti Pesto @ RM15.90

plates n bottles (25)

I would say the burger is a bargain that serve along with thick Pork pattie melted with a slice of cheeze and I just love mine spread with mustard, to pair it up well. Pork Burger @ RM15.90

plates n bottles (26)

Another bargain hunter is big slab of Pork Chop that being pan grill till moist and eat along with the special made gravy is just nice. @ RM16.90

They have fortuna wheel. What we need to do is just pick one of the number that you feel chances of hitting on it is there, of course there will be different price. I choose the easiest and after the wheel stop, you have to be the first one to answer the questions shown on the screen. The first one to answer it corretly, and I got won myself a 2g Pen Drive. Well, there are just some greedy people staying on the machine winning more than 5 pieces.

Awww, sometimes I do wonder how long will it takes me to get there to earn that kind of money to let me spend on what I want, as in not to be super rich, but just nice. Sometimes I sure do wish that if I do not get to travel overseas or locally I do have that kind of feeling I want myself to be pampered in a 5 star hotel. A night or 2 would be great. Till then, is one of my wish and also working my ass towards there.

We were here for a food review session and of course like one of our foodie VIP is down to this event too, CK which is famous in the up north and she bring me and Coco up to this Exclusive Residence Longue for refreshment and show us around with Keegen being a very nice guy to tour us around. This longue is located on the 26th floor of the hotel to host guest that stay in an exclusive room.

H (2)

I sure do not mind to spend my whole day here, lazy’ing around, enjoying the view, blog and online to utilise their free online services, bringing my whole group of friends to chill together

H (3)

This would be my most preferred area that makes me think of that Heineken advertisement having the whole fridge by myself, which is all foc.

H (4)

If you are a fan of mocktail or cocktail, they do have a mini bar upon per your request the person in charge of that day will hand made one for you, besides that you also can enjoy the finger food that prepared upon.

H (5)

Then Keegan is one of the managers there that introduce us his specialty in making cocktails. He introduce us ‘Lime Margarita’ for CK which she enjoys it a lot, not very strong in alcohol flavor that did not overpower the taste of the lime, what we would say is just perfect taste for her. The salt that sprinkle around the glass edge is good, that the after taste that left in our tongue is still salt taste.

H (6)

Then I got myself ‘Long Island Tea’ which he did it mild for us as I had empty stomach and my stomach was growling. It’s a mixture of 5 alcohol that he mention to us and I find it very good as the way I like it, doest taste strong alcohol in it but take 2 or 3 glass is enough to kill us off, taste mild that did not over power the tea taste but the amount of alcohol added in, I would say is strong. Don play play~

H (7)

Then Coco had ‘Cappucino’ as she is not feeling well, with honey as the spoon to stir in it. She just love her cup of coffee.

H (8)

Then we get a peek into CK’s room, if I were given a chance, I wouldn’t mind to camp there for 1 week. Every day wake up got breakfast, with big and specious bath room and a great study table area for me to do my stuff.

H (9)

Then we head down to Serena Brasserie for the Mexican food buffett with CK and me.

H (10)

A modern and spacious interior setting with light with dim lights to set on the environment is a great way we can enjoy our food.

H (11)

In this event, Nikko hotel had take this opportunity to organize this event with Embassy of Mexico that presents ‘Mexico. A Festival of Flavours’ that featuring renowned ‘Chef-Owner Daniel Ovadia from Paxia Restaurants’ in conjuction with Mexico’s Bicentennial Celebration.
