There are some restaurant are just unique in a way and why I mention that is this new restaurant that open to its door to public 2 months ago are serving fresh seafood to you and there are no plates and cutleries being provided. To enjoy the maximum feel of the food is you have to eat it with your hand. Shell Out Seafood restaurant is inspired from US itself as the owner just came back from the states and decided to do something similar for us to try it out.

shell seafood (1)

Shell Out Seafood is one of another restaurant tug inside this busy area where carpark can be a huge problem during day and night, there will be more luck for us. ūüôā

shell seafood (2)

Interior here are pretty, as they decorate in a way that we are dining in a mini fishing village that is indoor version, with wooden seating arrangement, fishing net as the wall and you can see crab, fishes on the net too.

shell seafood (3)

It also gives me the Taiwan feeling when I visited one of the cafe last round. They do provide alot of colourful pen for you to pen down anywhere in the shop to make it more creative design as part of their interior.

shell seafood (4)

Menu here is very straight forward as they serve most of the items with shell as mains. That’s how the name of the shop came about.

shell seafood (5)

Set lunch that they are offering are considering cheap. For all your seafood, you can pick the sauce that you would love to add in that comes with 4 types of flavour to add on, Cajun Sensation, Lemon Pepper, Butter Garlic, Spice Up – with 3 level and Shell Bang(which is all sauce mix into one)

shell seafood (6)

Before you eat, you will be given a neck napkins is to prevent the messy sauce flying over and landed on our shirt. We love their quote. Life is too Short to be Serious. Let’s EAT!

shell seafood (7)

Fried Sweet Potato makes a good starter as its being introduce to us,  selling at RM 8.90 per basket. The Fried Fish Basket serves deep fried baby pomfret that is crispy inside out @ RM 10.90 per basket.

shell seafood (8)

When you do not have a proper dining area as they pave the whole table with a huge chocolate sheet of dining paper, and sauce are given to us. See what happen to the table and food. Turn into art pieces.

Seafood serve here is very unique as I said they doesnt serve along with plates and the come in bag. It remind me of MacD shaker fries as this is seafood shaker. ūüėÄ

shell seafood (10)

Upon our order, it goes by gram. This is 250 g for 5 pax of us with¬†Scallop in 1/2 shell with Butter Garlic sensation (mild)¬†–¬†The scallops were well marinated, shaken in the bag and till butter garlic paste, are landed evenly. Scallop is so fresh and the flavour is little spicy with lemon sour end. Obvious that they have added lemon in but its fragrant enough to make your engine once start, its hard for you to stop.. Its too little and I guess 500g would be a perfect fit.

Price: RM17.90/250g | RM35.90/500g

shell seafood (13)

 Another 2 item that came about is Prawns and Clam

shell seafood (11)

¬†Clam (LALA) in Lemon Pepper sensation (mild) –¬†Fresh clams well marinated in lemon pepper paste, tasted really flavourful especially after squeezed in the lemon juices on it. It has mild peppery taste too.

Price: RM15.90/500g ; RM29.90/1kg

shell seafood (12)

Prawns here are so fresh that I love the texture of the meat, solid and light chewy, with the flavour added on Butter Garlic making it perfect in taste. Not too heavy flavoured, yet you can taste on the mild butter and garlic end. Do squeeze lemon into it, it brings the flavour out more prominent.

King Prawn in Butter Garlic sensation (mild) Р@ RM28.90/300g | RM39.90/500g | RM75.90/1kg

shell seafood (14)

This is what we really mean when no tables and cutlers are given. Making sure our finger licking good sensation..keke

shell seafood (15)

Next is interesting as it pack with  jumbo sausages, corn (are all additional added items) with Crawfish (YABBIES) in Cajun Sensation + Butter Garlic + Lemon Pepper sensation (OMG lvl 3) . 

shell seafood (16)

The taste of it is very unique is like when you cook something fail then you add on whatever ingredient you have then it turns out to be good. Flavour is blended pretty well with sour, spicy, sour and mild sweet is tasted and its a must try for all of you. Spicy OMG lvl 3 is not really spicy after all. We thought that we gonna have huge drop of sweat and tongue go numb and its no where near that.

Price: RM45.90/500g | RM78.90/1kg

shell seafood (17)

The most unique seafood that we have on table for that night is Japanese Snails in Cajun Sensation + Butter Garlic + Lemon Pepper sensation (mild) 

shell seafood (18)

I must say that the snails are huge and Caroline and Eric is like yew.. don want eat can ah . .

shell seafood (19)

Still need to try at least once. See its, really a huge snail, and the texture is pretty unique that the head part is pretty chewy, centerpart is pretty soft and the tail is really really soft till like taufufa already. Dip with more sauce and you wont feel it. Its like eating some unagi experience for me la.

shell seafood (20)

Crab in Cajun Sensation + Butter Garlic + Lemon Pepper sensation (mild) @ market price.

shell seafood (21)

This is how messy it had turn into by the end of the meal. If you are looking for some new dining experience, do come by this shop and its pretty interesting. Of course you can mix and play with the sauces which is available then my own preference, I would recommend Butter Garlic for Prawns/ Crabs follow by Cajun Sensation + Butter Garlic + Lemon Pepper sensation (OMG lvl 3) .

shell seafood (22)

Since all of us are here, we conteng conteng on their panel also.:D

Its a seafood restaurant and do expect to pay a bit more for this. Please please do order beer. Pairs so well. Yummz!

Love pastry? Why not try out something new .. There is a shop I stumble upon 2 weeks ago at Publika that sells Hungarian bread. How I got attracted to it is that the friendly owner himself handing out the tester and it was pretty good. Then during my purchase got to know more about the little stall more. I ask him how do I describe this, he mention its a type of pastry taste like bread and a bit soft like cakes. Interesting I say.

kalac (1)

This whole bread or cakes originate from Transylvania also known as one of a traditional wedding Pastry. It name as Kurtos Kalacs in Hungary languages. Kurtos means Chimney, where as Kalacs is a type of pastry.

kalac (2)

You can see Malaysians at his shop as baker but the main lead is from the owner himself as the secret recipi comes from him, hence that is how the name secret 009 came about. All their dough are being made from scratch at the shop and bake fresh daily.

kalac (4)

They turn out in a form of rolls and easy to peel. Not only that, there are a few flavours for you to choose. Ranging from original – its a must try, rather plain and aromatic with its dough softness and special add on flavours. You can try if they have tester before you buy.

kalac (3)

Besides that, they have peanut. . .

kalac (5)

Cinamon. .

kalac (6)

Chocolate.

I bought 3 flavours home, with Cinamon, chocolate and original and find that its best to eat it fresh. As the owner told me that if you want to eat it the next day, use oven to reheat it about 3-4 minutes then its fresh to eat again. My advice is not to buy the chocolate flavour as its easy to melt.

Love the texture of this Hungarian Kalacs, that I would say its in between pretzel and bread. ūüėÄ

Worth to give it a try as they sell in 3 different sizes, for Small is RM 6, then have medium and one full roll.

I have always been a fan of Vietnamese food, as I had alot nice one when I was at oversea. Well, still nothing to be compared. When this shop open few years back, I have heard much good feedback from my ex colleague when they went to dine there with clients. One of the set back was, its a bit pricey to dine there then timing was right a while ago as they were doing promo and decided to stop by with a group of friends.

sao nam (1)

Sao Nam is easily located at LG of Empire Shopping Mall.

sao nam (2)

sao nam (5)

For a Vietnamese Food, they really offer quite a unique range of food compare to any other restaurant that I have been too.

sao nam (8)

Of course when you are in this shop, Prawn Spring Roll (6pcs) @ RM 18 its pretty classic item to order or one of the dish that represent Vietnamese food. Roll up pretty well with the sauce to dip along and prawn is fresh~

sao nam (9)

I am not sure I put this name on the correct picture or not as Banana Flower & Chicken @ RM 20 its one of a good appetizer to start off with. It was gone within seconds as it has a bit of sourish, and sweet end. Just perfect.

sao nam (10)

I read many review, this is one of a dish that highly recommended by many people and same goes to me. Mangosteen & Prawn Salad @ RM 32 is a very unique salad that I have come across, they used Mangosteen to pair it as we thought it was weird at first then, the flavour is sour with their special sauce make it very good to go along with the prawn.

sao nam (11)

Vietnamese Pancake @ RM 26

sao nam (12)

When this is serve, it looks and smells good but taste differently. Part of it is with the dressing that they have in there. I do not really like it but some of my friends love it.

sao nam (13)

Rice Rolls Lotus Leaf (6pcs) @ RM 21

sao nam (14)

 

sao nam (16)

If you are having rice and Lamb Curry @ Rm 34 is a must order. Thick in curry gravy with lamb cubes are cook till soft. A bit sweet and spicy and those of you do not like the taste of lamb do not order this. Its quite strong even you can smell it, according to my friend.

sao nam (17)

Chicken Lemongrass @ RM 20 is another dish that you can consider even ordering. The soup that cook along is fragrant with mild lemongrass taste that I would rate it like Steam Chinese Wine chicken but this is Vietnamese version.

sao nam (20)

Imperial Lotus Leaf Rice @ RM 18

sao nam (21)

Sweet Potato Leaves @ RM 12

sao nam (22)

Friend Tofu @ RM 22

sao nam (18)

sao nam (19)

In Vietnamaese Food, of course we must try out their Hue Beef Noodle Soup @ RM 18, soup is sweet with thin noodle and few beef slices to go along. Pretty good though.

No doubht that this place do provide nice Vietnamese Food, and if you are willing to pay a bit more, you can even consider this place for dining.

Few weeks back while waiting for movie, saw this new ice cream stall located infront of GSC 1-Utama ticketing counter with many people flocking around. Then only realise its something new. Just Like It

[No longer operate]

When I was travelling last year to Sydney, I did saw this concept of ice-cream and thought it would be very interesting or something new to me. With all the dry ice type smoke flowing out from the stand mixer. Just Like It! Ice cream is another revolutionary of F&B.

just like it (1)

just like it (2)

The concept of the outlet is rather unique and impressive with chilling nitrogen gas, all the staff looks like lab technicians with lab coats, beakers, volumetric flasks….

just like it (3)

Well, if they are not ice cream then what are those? hmmm . .. Their offering of flavours are pretty unique with New Popcorn, Durian Durian, chocolate flakes or as above the menu you can see.

just like it (4)

 Can see that all the flavours are pretty concentrated.

 Their process of ice-cream is rather interesting by pouring their N2 liquid and also the puree that they have.. .

The process continues if you order other flavour, as they wash the item and prepare for next.

Tried both their Mango and Durian durian. The texture is smooth and taste of both flavour is not bad. Durian have the strong durian taste as they do add on little durian meat in it, yet I still find that overall mouthful taste, flavour and smoothness of it, still Sydney much better.

Nevertheless, its still one of the new concept in town that did make a buzz out of it. . Price at RM 7.90 – RM11.90. Still worth for you to try it out at least once, to see what is the difference between the rest of the ice cream.

Weather in Penang is crazy hot, as over the weekend I was there for a few functions and of course bringing the KL bloggers along following by my favourite shop especially for their Coconut Shake and Jelly. This shop might not well know to many people yet as mostly alot regular that come back for their drinks or through word of mouth. Good news is that I do not have to go all the way to Melacca for that famous Klebang Coconut Shake as now in Penang also offer something similar and I find it better.

joez (1)

One of their signature is their Coconut Jelly is whereby they started and at times I do make a take away in KL Central. Yap, they do have a small kiosk outlet in KL Central depature hall that sell their signature coconut jelly.

joez (2)

Back in Penang of course I often go for their 3 combo, young coconut drink, coconut shake and coconut Jelly which I rarely miss out.

joez (3)

 Coconut Shake @ RM 3.80 comes with a scoop of ice cream.

joez (4)

Indeed its very freshing under the crazy hot weather, not too milky nor too sweet that comes to my liking, yet a well balance taste of both coconut flavour and milk that did not over power it.

A Recommended place for drinks or another favourite place of mine is Ice – Tingkap – traditional Indian Drink. Set back of this place is parking is a pain in the ass. If you are stopping by at the main road you are obstructing the whole traffic area. Usually I park opposite next to kaki kaki and walk over.

When back to Penang usually, I always wanted to go back street food but my friend always end up bring me to this kind of places. When they told me to dinner is at Island Plaza, I thought they must be joking till they said I must try this Japanese Restaurant –¬†Ido Ichi Japanese Cuisine. Who can really resist Japanese Food?

Well, Island Plaza used to be one of the hottest spot to hang out 15 years ago before Gurney Plaza was constructed. One of a major place that most teenagers to hang out at that time, with many prime brands hosted there. Now they have gone major upgrading work to make it another look and feel.

Edo Ichi (1)

I got to know thru a friend that Ido Ichi Japanese Cuisine is actually under the group which Azuma Japanese Restaurant is also one of theirs. When I arrive, I am surprise by huge crowd and have to wait for 20 minutes for a table. Seldom will see this situation happen in Penang and its located inside Island Plaza, that makes me curious.

Edo Ichi (2)

They are operating 2-3 lots that make the dining area spacious with a few sections including sushi bar and close up area.

Edo Ichi (3)

Edo Ichi (4)

Price here are pretty decent and I compare to another of my favourite brand Sushi Tei in Gurney, its pretty much similiar

Edo Ichi (5)

 Then we ordered quite a lot for 5 pax and started of with Salmon Sashimi. Finely cut and its very fresh! @ RM 28

Edo Ichi (6)

For rolls, I would say that they have created their own signature style compare to others and tried both their Una Cheeze Maki @ RM 35 & Shake Mayo Mentai Roll @ RM 30. Both are equally good as ingredient are pretty generous and I like how the cheeze flavour makes it more unique with their own light sauce.

Edo Ichi (7)

I order something new that my friend have yet try is Tenderloin Cappaccio @ RM 35. It was all gone after I snap the picture. Thin slice beef that cut to perfection, with shoyu sauce and mayonnaise with the fine cut that makes it nearly melt in mouth. Order another plate again.

Edo Ichi (8)

Volcano Roll is not the best I have come across as I have tried better ones before. Overall, the cheese and mixture of ingredient in it is quite not bad for a Penang version. @ RM 28

Edo Ichi (9)

 This is the fellow who always wanted to maciam maciam places!

Edo Ichi (11)

Sukiyaki is pretty good too with the soup base quite salty as what I have learn, flavourfull that serve along with fine cut beef slice. It will be perfect during rainy season.  @ RM 30

Edo Ichi (12)

Yaki Gyuza @ RM 8 both item is nice to go along as Gyuza here won many places that I have tried, by pan fried the base perfectly to golden brown and ingredient in it a bit solid.

Edo Ichi (13)

Both Fried rice are equally good and I prefer more Scallop Fried Rice @ RM 12. Very fragrant with garlic with wok hei. We add extra garlic into our rice to make it extra kick. Seafood Fried Rice @ RM 12

Edo Ichi (14)

 

Edo Ichi (15)

By the time comes to this Avocado Guratan ¬†we are all very stuff. Ended up I finish all this. If you love cheeze potato and some seafood this would be ideal for [email protected] RM 18

Edo Ichi (16)

Kimuchi Ramen turns out to be pretty good, mild spicy and sour end with thin slice of pork in it. Ramen is slightly overcook and if they can make it al dante then would be perfect bowl of noodle. @ RM 18

At the end of the meal, it was a very satisfying dinner with great food. If you are looking for some nice Japanese Cuisine, this outlet certainly would be one of my recommendation.
