[Close Down]

Over the weekend, I was attending a Photography workshop at Bankers Club, and of course there are breaks in between. Then hit down to dinner and walk pass thru Sungai Wang to head to Lot 10 Hutong, I came across this Polo Bun Shop by the name Polo Zai Bakery Cafe. I love polo bun alot and looking at the texture of the bread surely looks tempting and decided to buy 1 after dinner to test the quality.

Guess what? After buy 1 on the first night, we ended up ta pau and buy for the next 2 days of the workshop, including last night. 😀

Some fact of Polo bun or 菠萝包 is the Hong Kong style of bun and very popular in Hong Kong. The word 菠萝 is also a Hong Kong word meaning ‘pineapple’ where the skin of the bun looks like a pineapple.

Now at Polozai Bakery Cafe, they have mastered and specialized in baking these Polo bun with 16 choices of creative and delicious flavors to choose from. I believe they are freshly baked daily to get the freshness and quality of it. You will be tempted by the smell of it although its not so strong as compare to Roti Boy.

I have tried  a few flavours over the past few days. One of the original which is Polo Butter is always the classic. With the cripsy crumbs on the top and butter spread at the base/ bottom @ RM 2.80.

Next I try their Custard Polo Bun, crust is the same as the filling is custard. Find that the filling of custard is not well spread out as I bite half of the bun still there is no sign of the custard and only realize is only 1/4 of the bun, which is one of the corner.

To be adventourous, we bought alot a few flavours such as Durians. Durian turns out to be pretty good and generous with the ingredient, with the durian flesh sticking out like that, can see that they are using fresh durian to insert as the filling.

Another 2 we tapau is Cheeze and Polo Ham Sausage.

The range of their bun are from RM2.80 – RM 5 depends on which selection you are aftering. For first timer, I would definately recommend their classic signature which is the Polo Bun, follow by Custard or durian.

Overall, the crust of the top is not bad, not too sweet and bun is pretty soft. Can say that one of the best Polo Bun that I came across, in overall taste and if they are serve pippin hot or warm, it would surely be one of the top seller in Sungwai Wang.

On our first night, arriving at Taiwan, it was all about eating and walking around as we head to business district to meet up with Pak’s friend that had arrange way before and booked a lovely Malat Buffet Steamboat restaurant (Man Tang Hong, 滿堂紅) for us, and surely they had made the right decision for us as we starve ourselves all the way from Malaysia to Taiwan just to eat their local food.

After 10 -15 minutes walk from the station that we disembark, here we are, in front of the restaurant with many people waiting around the restaurant.

restaurant 1 (3)

When I walk up the stairs and the first thing that is was some young chef slicing those juicy and fresh meat and roll it into mini rolls and told my friend this is a must have section.

restaurant 1 (4)

Their interior build up is quite simple like our locals just that it looks nicer with wooden floor and hard plastic material that build around to build up some sections and the place are quite narrow and pack.

restaurant 1 (6)

This is where Pak introduce two of his best friends to all of us from left Eva and Tina.

restaurant 1 (5)

Once we were seated down, in the little menu, there are varieties of soup base to choose from, one of it that will not miss is their ‘Ma-lat Soup’ and ‘Sour Salted Vegetable Soup’.

restaurant 1 (7)

During the food ordering, of course we leave it to the experts to order and our responsible is to EAT! Drinks is free flow, with all the soft drinks Coke, Sprite and some of their local brands available in  glass bottle that store in two big fridge.

restaurant 1 (8)

One of their local food that you would want to try is the black stick (its in chinese do not know what it is called in english) that is made of something like our local muar chi add in with alot of black sesame. Taste weird at first but after the whole stick, turns out to be not bad, soft and filled with sesame taste.

restaurant 1 (9)

Item that must order which is their very own ‘Homemade Fish Paste’ by using bamboo and you can put into the soup according the size and shape you want.

restaurant 1 (10)

Comes to the meat section that had been perfectly thin slice by machine to make it instantly cook by a few dip in the hot soup are : ‘Beef Slices’

restaurant 1 (11)

‘Pork and Lamb Slices’

restaurant 1 (12)

This is what I mean, a whole thin slice of lamb, and flat it on top of the soup base and use your chopstick stir it for a while(less than 30 secs) then bring it out.

restaurant 1 (13)

This is how it must be done to ensure it is soft and not too hard. Lamb and beef definately is my choice in this range.

restaurant 1 (14)

After start off with meat section then we add in everything into the soup, while it takes time to cook, the clear soup base turns out to be quite bland in taste only manage to taste on a bit clear sour flavor but if you love something spicy or especially during winter and you want to enjoy a bit of sweat then ‘Malak’ is certainly the choice you must not miss. Spicy at 60% level where it is still edible not a few bites then you blow out flames, sour and to me its challenging to eat with the meat and ingredient but that was my main target for the whole night. Thumbs up!

restaurant 1 (15)

This is the homemade fish paste that we order again (as I do not like fish ball or paste, this turns out to be good).

restaurant 1 (21)

Lining up for sauces and revealing to us some secrets.

restaurant 1 (2)

Eating steamboat would not be perfect if you miss out the sauces. They have at least more than 15 sauces for you to go after.

restaurant 1 (16)

Then Eva and Tina show us their secret recipe of the sauces that they discover.

restaurant 1 (17)

The secret mixture of this are, peanut powder, chopped green onions, finely chopped and season garlic, a bit of chili powder, chopped chili, ONLY egg yolk and soy sauce. Result: hint of 4 flavors to enhance our taste bud and its superbly good!

restaurant 1 (18)

The packed of monkey that Eva is holding is actually a Packed of Maggie mee very cute of the packing and surely it taste like uncooked Mamee that we used to eat.

restaurant 1 (19)

During the dinner while waiting we camwhore abit and as for Eva it was funny and cute to see her talk for the first time as she just went to see dentist before meeting us.

restaurant 1 (22)

It was fun to have them around as it makes the whole dinner merrier.

restaurant 1 (23)

Then after that I wasy busy eating . . .

restaurant 1 (24)

and we have around 15 pax for that night.

restaurant 1 (27)

If you guys feel that the buffet is too heavy for you and would like to take something sweet by sitting there accompany your friend, for girls and guys that love ice-cream you will definitely be in heaven with the available selection as many as 12 flavors Hagen-Das.

restaurant 1 (29)

First round of food was so satisfying, with great food and value that the dinner was only at NT550 = RM55 per pax, that  valid for 2 hours session, with fresh ingredient and also with great companion for a start.

If you are looking something to start off with some damage on your stomach, then this is the place worth to try. It is advise to make a booking before you go.

Second day of our trip. As we wake up early and gather ready to go and hunt for food. Previously at Mong Kok I did spot a shop there already as it was quite packed with people but I think every shop also was packed with ppl that night.

While we reached LangHam Place to go for shopping and we found out that we were too early. Most of the shop had not open yet so we went to look for breakfast. Ask around for the stall on the street where will he recommend us to eat and he ask us walk walk walk further down bout 2 blocks away and turn right.

So ended up in Mong Kok again for the first night when we came out from the subway tunnel. Then I instantly point to the shoop that I spotted before and ask every 1 go in and eat.

I don know how to read chinese so what the heck. Just take pictures and post it up. The funny thing in the restaurant is always ‘A Chan’, ‘B Chan’, ‘C Chan’ means like set A or B or C. Really a Hong kong tea house. Kekekek.
As for me, I only know how to see and point. A half banana like me which know how to speak but do not know how to read, so the only thing to rely on during order food of course is the Pictures. If the pictures quality is good and the food take tempting and come out SUCKS also no choice.
If I am not mistaken this is ‘Set G’ HKD 20 which is 1 ‘Milk Tea’ and ‘Polo Bun’. First thing first. I must say that the milk tea here is far much nicer that any of the restaurant in Malaysia can offer. 10x better than Kim Gary or watever Hong kong restaurant we have. The thickness of the tea and the milk taste is just there. A satisfying drink to start off with.
and of course my very favourite and not to be miss during in Hong Kong which is of course the ‘Polo Pau‘. The top, is perfectly backed and the crust is sweet, the bun is soft and the butter is melting to suits the taste of it. One bite will just take your breath away. This might not be the best polo bauz in the area but to me, it is satisfying though which I had 2.
This is what I order besides the Set G. The name is ‘Jar Jiang Mian if not mistaken, and the taste to me till today is still fresh in my mind and craving for more of it. The best thing is the noodle of course, it is curley curley and just don know how to tell why the wantan noodle in Hong Kong is much better than in Malaysia. The meat is soft, the sauce is sour and abit spicy. When you mix and stir it together, you just want to have more of it. HKD 24
My friend order the Koey Teow Soup’ Noting fancy about it. The soup is like plain water, the koey toew is normal. Plain plain like dat also around HKD 24.

Next of course not to be miss in Hong Kong which is a MUST eat food. ‘Wan Tan Noodle’. As I say on the Jar Jiang Mian above the noodle is just so nice and curley curley and you can just bite the strand of it. It is abit solid which makes you want to salivate more of the noodle. The soup base is good, which had the taste of wantan and they are surely not to kiam siap on the WanTan. Inside it, is filled with 2 big prawns and the taste of it, you would just want to ask for more. 3 is not enough, to satisfaction you need another 2 which makes just ngam ngam. HKD 24

The last dish which is thing the look is kinda funny, ‘Macaroni with Ham’. I feel like the soup taste really macaroni and the ham is just ham. Noting much to comment on this as I only try the soup base.
and of course.. all of us are very full and satisfy with our breakfast…Time to Head to SHOPPING!!!!!!!
