I always satisfy my craving for Ramen (Menya Musashi) inside Isetan as this new Japanese Eatery,area EAT PARADISE  was added since Isetan open its door in 1-Utama. I only always walk on the customer service side wing and never did I even bother to walk on the other side, till I read Bangsarbabe’s blog on this restaurant, Tonkatsu by Ma Maison, I was like why did I never walk to that area.

Before you walk into the outlet, they have a huge cabinate located at the near entrance that feature all their food and what you can expect when its been serve. I must say the portion is pretty huge.

Menu are pretty straight forward as they only serve Tonkatsu series and there are a few types for you to choose from. I am quite impress that they design the menu and order of food like steak. Small portion with about 180-250G of meat(your choice of selection chicken or Pork), or large with 250g and above if not mistaken. All order comes with rice, soup and unlimited refill of cabbage. For rice we get to choose White rice or Multi grain rice for healthy selection.

Before you dine, we are given a little ball of Oroshi (white reddish) with tamari dressing to eat before the main course. I read on the pamplets, the reason of this is to help refresh the palate and digestive process. Interesting.

On the table itself, they have special sauce, soy sauce, sesame, sesame dressing.

I ordered extra with Potato Salad @ RM 5.90 Something simple, not to heavy mayonnaise and its a perfect balance. Love it~

tonkatsu (13)

 Here comes my Nameton Set @ RM 32.90

tonkatsu (14)

Its a mix with fried prawn, pork loin & Pork fillet. Both the prawn and pork were fried to perfection with crisp on outlayer and pork is still moist and juicy. Prawn is very fresh and pressing lemon brings extra taste in it.

tonkatsu (15)

 Dipping with Mayonnaise is not one of the best option for pork but goes well with my prawn.

tonkatsu (16)

 The miso soup is way too salty for my liking.

tonkatsu (26)

On my set also comes with Tonjiru, noodle is cook well, warm enough to finish the whole thing in seconds.

tonkatsu (17)

 My healthy multi grain rice.

tonkatsu (18)

 On our tray we have a sauce tray that we follow on the instruction for our pork cullet dipping area.

tonkatsu (25)

 with Salt, spicy sauce and original sauce.

 Jumbo Rosu Katsu Set @ RM 28.90

tonkatsu (20)

 Jumbo means you have your pork loin in bigger cutting.

tonkatsu (21)

and look at how the pork is being fried, will still pale red meat left behind  and with well balance of fats in between makes it yummy!

tonkatsu (22)

 Love the wasabi mustard that pairs uniquely with the tonkatsu.

tonkatsu (23)

as all our set comes with finely cut vegetable and of course dressing for it is to enhance the flavour and I ended up refill twice. The sauce is perfectly good~

tonkatsu (24)

Since our sets doesnt have  Tonkatsu house special miso sauce I ordered it and try. I prefer their house special sauce. @ RM 2.

tonkatsu (27)

It looks pretty decent when it was serve and Anna end up cannot finish her jumbo Rosu which is about 300g of pork.

Tonkatsu is not bad but certainly one of the best I have come across so far. Price I think its slighlty expensive compare to the normal ones. Worth to give it a try.

Usually to hunt for nice food, their location is always hidden some where which usually do not appear in google map. Another restaurant that turn out to be a hit among office worker in the area is this new Songket Restaurant which just started operation few months back. They are situated in a busy road of Jalan Yap Kwan Seng that is directly located behind Tony Romas.

One good thing about this restaurant is that they have alot of free parking around the area and once park its just few steps away.

songket (2)

By the term Songket is a fabric that belongs to the brocade family of textiles of Indonesia, Malaysia, and Brunei. It is hand-woven in silk or cotton, and intricately patterned with gold or silver threads. The metallic threads stand out against the background cloth to create a shimmering effect. In the weaving process the metallic threads are inserted in between the silk or cotton weft (latitudinal) threads. (source from wikipedia)

As this restaurant aim to assemble all the best traditional Malay food in most of the states available to be served under one roof.

The name itself that makes me even more delighted to try out this shop. It is one of the new shop that had entered the busy little area of Kota Damansara. Rogers Delight is one of the shop that offer Nyonya Cuisine and a bit of own cook home recipe with the chef had more than 30 years of experience in US and being a person had retired and came back to Malaysia not that long, he still have the strong passion in cooking, inherite cooking from parents and preparing good food for people, that is where the new shop is born.

Rogers Delight (1)

The shop is just located a few shops away from Snowflakes.

Rogers Delight (2)

The dining area is definately very cosy with bright yellow orangy lights, filled with wooden tables and chairs.

Rogers Delight (3)

To get your heads off for the day to make your face squirk a bit, try out their ‘Sour Plum Drink (kat chai suen mui)’ RM 5 for such a big glass and we find it worth the price with the thick blend of sour plum in it.

Rogers Delight (4)

The very first dish was served ‘Lady finger with shrimp paste’ the aroma seriously caught our attention, with the paste had been fried till abit dry n very aromatic.  RM8 (S)  RM15 (B)

Rogers Delight (5)

Their signature dish ‘Special Curry Duck with Yam’ is best to order 2-3 hours before the meal to get the best out of it, as the duck will be slowly cook in this claypot along with the curry to ensure the softness and tenderness of the meat blend well with the yam.  RM18 (S)  RM40 (B)

Rogers Delight (6)

‘Curry Fish Head’ a dish that goes very well with rice, watery curry base with mild spiciness.  RM28

Rogers Delight (7)

Sweet & Sour Seafood with Pineapple  @ RM20 (S)  RM50 (B)

Rogers Delight (8)

Rogers Delight (9)

One of the dish that caught my attention too is ‘Pan fried prawn with assam’  it taste like laksa soup had been fried along with it till its dry. Taste awesome, with fresh prawns added in, as I like the asam taste a bit strong, get the gravy a bit to eat with rice, is good. RM20 (S)  RM65 (B)

Rogers Delight (10)

One of my favourite for the night which is not in the menu, consider it ‘Special homemade Taufu’, the gravy is thick in flavour very nice till me and Esther keep spooning on the gravy to drink. Recommended~

Rogers Delight (11)

Star of the night for curry range is  ‘Coconut Curry Prawn’, with curry cook till its a bit dry gravy and thick then pour inside the coconut to make it thick and aroma absorb into the curry.

Rogers Delight (12)

‘Coconut Curry Prawn’RM20 (S)  RM65 (B) Recommended~

Rogers Delight (13)

”Salted egg crab” is a bit more salty if you eat it just like that, but I sure do not mind licking all the side with the welll coated salted egg on the shell.  (market price)

Quite a number of times that I drive pass through this shop especially on weekend, there will be usually a huge crowd standing at this newly open restaurant about 2 months ago for dim sum Restaurant Jin Xuan Hong Kong. Traffic will be bad around this area as you can see many people standing and hunting for tables.

Thus it gives me the urge to give them a chance to try it out with my curiosity is it that nice?

timsum

According to one of my friend, the owner used to have a few shops in this area and now decided to combine up and make a big one which is very eye catchy when you drive through the road on morning at weekend.

timsum (2)

First dish that the guy came over was with ‘Hong Kong Chee Cheong Fun’ that served cold instead of hot or warm that turns out to be not that nice.

timsum (3)

‘Pork Pau’ was next its served warm but then the filling in it is cold already (wondering they just steam for a while and took out already), the gravy of is a bit sweet and salty.

timsum (4)

timsum (5)

timsum (6)

‘Siu Mai’

timsum (7)

One of my favourite that I will not miss in tim sum is ‘Pai Kuat’.

timsum (8)

‘Har Kau’ that the skin is quite thick.

timsum (9)

‘Beancurd Skin with fish ball paste’ turns out to be quite good, cripsy on the skin, dipping it with chili and sweet sauce  is just nice.

timsum (10)

‘Fried Prawn’

timsum (11)

‘Fried Lou Pak Gou’ if its served hot then would taste much nicer.

timsum (12)

‘Char Siew Bun’ with butter skin on the top layer is not bad.

timsum (13)

‘Polo Pau’

After had this few, we do not have much of the appetite to continue already and when then bill came into around RM45 and with that kind of pricing, I can go for better options. Crowd is just the matter and the food taste so so only surely doesnt come anything near to Hong Kong taste.

[update 5/5/2016] tried again and still taste normal and it is quite expensive now.
