[update 1/5/2016: they now have to The School by Jaya One, PJ]

Who would not be a fan of steamboat when it comes to cold weather, or rainy season. Many of us would suddenly think of it during this cold weather. Well, I guess new marketing way for it is called Hotpot. Non the less, there is a new outlet of hotpot/steamboat that just start operating in this Kampung Baru, Sungai Buloh neigbourhood. Operating less than a month and its gaining its popularity thru the residence here.

The operation team is no stranger to us as the team that run famous brand like Kissaten and Lammeeya is the people behind this new concept that they have extend their wings too.

 Choices are pretty much okay that ranges from pork, seafood and some home cook stuff.

xiao lau wang (4)

 If you are adventurous then the sauce counter is ready for you to mix around.

If you are not too sure what is the best mixture, then there is a guide for you for house specialty sauce mixture ingredient list prepared.

xiao lau wang (7)

 I have mix a few sauces for the night.

xiao lau wang (8)

The first sauce on the top is the recommended sauce of house mixture and the bottom is another ingredient that I have DIY. 😀

xiao lau wang (9)

 We ordered 2 types of soup for a table of 8 and comes in different gas stove, not like the other ordinary that a pot shared by 2.

 I love their smoke duck which is fragrant and chewy texture. – REcommended

xiao lau wang (11)

 they have homemade fish ball that serve in bamboo  with Prawn Paste, Fish Paste with Tobikko and Chicken Paste .

xiao lau wang (12)

 and a few types of homemade Mushroom Pork Balls, Beef Balls, Celery Pork Balls, Sotong Pork Balls and Sotong Balls. Pork Ball is a must order. . .

xiao lau wang (13)

 Fresh seafood. . .

xiao lau wang (14)

Vegetable which is a must for me and another advantage here is if you do not know what types of vegetable to order, they have vegetable platter which offer a few types of vegetable that serve in one plate.

xiao lau wang (15)

Fresh meat slices that I would prefer lamb and pork. Bacon roll is not bad to go along if you mix your own sauce nicely. . 🙂

xiao lau wang (17)

Love this as its fried to perfection and porky ingredient is well marinated and mix, not too solid yet just nice.

xiao lau wang (18)

 Fried Dumplings, fried salmon head and fried fu chuk, serve pippin hot.

xiao lau wang (19)

When all the ingredients are serve, these hungry people can wait to pour all the ingredients in it and get it cook . .

xiao lau wang (20)

There are 2 types of soup available. . One which is Pork bones, pig stomach, chicken & salmon fish head soup

xiao lau wang (21)

 This is the classic Pork bones, pig stomach, chicken soup base

xiao lau wang (22)

Among both soup, I find that the classic one taste much better after with all ingredients being cook along and the soup is much tastier.

xiao lau wang (16)

 

At the mean time while waiting for your food to cook, you can order their Hong Kong Twin Sausage Rice &  Double Liver & Smoked Duck Rice

All hotpot is best to pair with what? Beer!! This restaurant do offer SNOW beer and its a perfect combination. Price is very reasonable. .

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

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 (20)

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 (26)

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 (28)

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.

F & B in Kota Damansara is mushrooming very fast and, we get a chance to taste one of the new shop open in the area Restaurant Village Fish Head Noodle. They have ample of parking space available around the shop, but if you mean during lunch time, this area would be pack.

From a traditional taste of fish head noodle which is clear in colour that used to eat in Penang but since after came down to KL I enjoy eating the KL version with added milk, salted veggie and rice wine.

The shop that just open not long already enjoying regular customer as what we have been told by the owner.

village fish head (3)

village fish head (4)

Food that available in the menu, is quite reasonable that you can get a meal for 2 person around RM25 including drinks.

If you ask me where to hunt for food, one of the places or area I would recommend is Bandar Puteri, Puchong. There are a lot of restaurant here, but most of them come and go as the competitive level here is very high in for foodie like me, its good as there are a lot of choices but for business is bad as have to keep coming up with new promotions. Restaurant Brother Kuan.

One colleague of mine that she stay around the area that recommend we should come to this shop which is pretty good, without any hesitation, we directly head there as most of us don feel like eating at canteen for that day.

Brother Kuan

Brother Kuan (2)

The place is simple, nice and cozy.

Brother Kuan (3)

Dishes in the menu is not many variety but mostly are recommended.

Brother Kuan (4)

With Ping Ping had dine here before, we leave the choise for her to choose.

Brother Kuan (5)

This is the starter of the day, that Karen and Kebbie bought from a auntie from the front. I love the young mango, its not very sour yet very sweet. Good to eat before meal.

Brother Kuan (6)

Although this look simple, but if you do come to this shop and dine, this would be a recommended dish by me, the ‘BBQ Pork’ had been roast till the outer layer is crispy, layer fats and meat are choose evenly and its just perfect.

Brother Kuan (7)

‘Hailam Chicken’ that something is simple and nice with soft tender meat and smooth chicken skin add on with some ginger is just as good as it is.

Brother Kuan (8)

Ahhh, this is my favorite of the day, ‘BBQ-Pork Omelette’ as not many people can fried an egg very aromatic that egg taste blends well with the bbq pork, onion and some vegies. I wish I had 2 of this. RM 6 Recommended~

Brother Kuan (9)

If you are looking for something clear soup to go along, this would not be a bad choice to go after. ‘Bayam with Superior Soup’ RM 8

Brother Kuan (10)

One of the unique taste of the day ‘Roast Duck with Herbal Sauce’ as I always eat roast duck but never with herbal sauce. The flaver blends in pretty good but do not expect the meat to be as aromatic that just roasted out but its another taste to enjoy. RM15

Brother Kuan (11)

‘Miss Fried Fish Paste’ @ RM 8, deep fried perfectly, that a home made fish paste feel is there.

Brother Kuan (12)

This happens to be another in demand dish as ‘La Chi Prawns’ was put down on the table, I was not fast enough as Kenji already stole one of the prawn as it looks too tempting. It is quite spicy (those who cannot eat spicy, please request to reduce it) and solid prawn meat that been fried along with the sauce and spiciness level is there just makes the prawn very good. RM25

Brother Kuan (13)

During the whole meal, the chef and another lady been observing me for very long time and curious of me why keep taking picture and not long after that the chef which is also the owner Chef Marcus walked over and ask us how is the food, do we enjoy and everything, after found out that I am a foodie, he is even more friendly, telling me that this shop is the first restaurant that offer cart steam rice which is more on health purpose as to go along with his dish, Chinese herbal. He indeed was very friendly as I did observe him, he walk and talk with customer before came over to my table.

Total bill came out with RM118 shared with 7 pax is very reasonable and with the quality served, its recommended~

Last trip a few of my best friend came down to KL for holiday. Then I was introduce to another fish head bee hoon shop in Kuchai Lama area. I did not know that, there is actually another shop too in the very same area, Win Soon Fish Head Noodle .

Win soon (1)

It was dinner time and the place was quite pack. Manage to grab a just only table to accommodate for all of us.

Win soon (2)

Latest menu as per my visit [March 2016]

In the menu, it is not much different compare to other shops that I have eaten so far.

Win soon (5)

As usual, I would order ‘Fish Paste and Fish Head Mee Hoon RM7.50. The soup base is not as strong as the other 2 stalls that I have went but still its not bad a taste of its own.

Win soon (6)

Then Tatt order ‘Fried Fish Head’ (Big) RM12.80. Its good. Crispy on the outer layer of the fish and the fish meat is soft yet the a bit salty gives the taste of it. All of us just hantam it.

Overall, I still like Kafe 2369 Fish Head Noodle cuz of the soup base aroma is strong enough.

update march 2016 : their quality had drop and no longer as good as it used to be.
