Bangkok trip is all about makan on my 5th day trip, after heavy dinner at one of good restaurant that Goft recommended which is Taling Pling at Central World then now we are hunting for one of the best desert around that area called Mango Tango that operated by Hong Kee according to Goft. On the way walking there, if it wasnt raining, there are night market directly opposite Central world heading to Siam square.

Mango Tango (1)

I find that the street market here sell clothing which is pretty nice as if we do not have time to shop alot in famous JJ Market (Chatuchak Market), here would be one of the good option too as you can bargain.

Mango Tango (2)

After about 5 minutes walk from Central World, here we are, as we reach our jaw drop as the place is so little and flock by so many people ready to hunt for places in the compact shop.

Mango Tango (3)

This place got famous with alot foreginers because it got feature in some international food guide in Hong Kong and Japan. There is where how they gain the popularity and branding.

Mango Tango (4)

Cannot deny that I love the concept of the shop that show’s purely they are selling desert and only desert that they are serving. They source the best mango in Thailand and its pluck fresh. A simple decoration of the outlet make it outstanding around the neighourhood area as it is very hard for you to miss the shop that is well light up.

Mango Tango (8)

I guess these are their best seller therefore put at the counter

Mango Tango (9)

We are amaze how fast this worker cut on the mango and look so pro .. . We were just drooling like a small kid looking at candy when me, Steven and Tatt saw the mango how yellowish and how sweet it is going to taste like. .

Mango Tango (5)

Annie always love to promote how  god the food is and this round with menu, I guess she will be a good food ambassor. Too bad I was not allow to post her eating pose. Saliva will drop just by seeing her tam chiak face (the way she eat). The cute menu also in Mango shape and the have selected menu for you to choose from and we have let the desicion for Goft again to go for our menu.

Mango Tango (10)

Getting ready with my spoon to attack on the desert yet the funny thing is that I have heard An Apple a day keeps the doc away and now, its A Mango a Day keeps the Doc away . .kekeke I sure do not mind by having lots of sweet aromatic mango. . .

As we were super full from dinner, and now its very hard for us to resist to say NO to deserts after looking on how the way they do it and die die also must try quite few. Our initial plan was order 2-3 to share and the end up result every one having one portion. 😀

Mango Tango (11)

Mango Sticky rice is just so opposite version of what we have in Malaysia and the servings there as I meant, that in Malaysia our sticky rice is a huge chink of it with a few slices of mango and in Mango Tango is a huge big ass mango with small scoop of sticky rice. Its served warm, soft and very aromatic with their superb coconut milk as we love it so much on the taste and pair with the smooth sweet mango is just perfect.

Mango Tango (12)

Mango Tango (13)

Do not know what to choose get Mango Tango Signature dessert and consists of a half nicely cut mango in cubes, with a side of mango pudding topped with whipped cream and a ball of mango sorbet. A perfect combination to try all version in their outlet.

Mango Tango (14)

Mango Delight comes with a mixture of fruits base, kiwi, mango, honeydew, aloe verra, watermelon and some other ingredient, and all the fruits are fresh and sweet.

Mango Tango (15)

Mango Smothie is super good,very smooth, easy to drink yet the mango is so aromatic like drinking pure mango juice.

Mango Tango (16)

Mango Tango (17)

all of us having great time with our desert and this is one of Goft’s fav drink .

Mango Tango (18)

One thing I regreted that I did not buy enough is their Sensational Mango Tango Desert – Preserved Fruits. One of the best I have eaten so far as they sell it in lose pack or economy pack that comes in a pack of 3 boxes. As for  now, whenver my friend go to Bangkok, I will try to ask them tapau this back for me .. Hehehe .. Once you eat it, its addictive even my parents finish this whole pack on the night itself.

Dry, not too sweet, as its like eating pure mango in another version. Recommended to get at least 2 pack.

Mango Tango (19)

Here we are, our desert hunter and Collen always busy with her food, that is how tam chiak she is whenever taking pictures. 😀

As for last say, any order in the menu, surely will satisfy your crave on desert as all also pretty good!

If you do go Bangkok in the area of famous shopping districk Central World that area, please do not miss this super good yet delicious Mango desert, as you would not regret even though its a bit hard to find as you have to walk thru some alley turn right turn left.

Highly Recommended if you love or do not like desert.!!!!

They have 4 branch in Bangkok check out their website for other branches location : www.mymangotango.com

I just wish  Malaysia have such a good desert shop. The set back is our mango is so exp and import in even worst. I guess I shall keep my mango crave till next holiday . . 🙁

The funny thing is that, when May Ling ask me to join her for dinner and told me the name of the restaurant I was like hah? again and again. .. as the restaurant name is called Ricetaurant which is located in Bangsar Village 2 which I cant even remember when is the last time that I came here.

The changes here is quite alot that now host quite a number of nice cafe’s and restaurant in this building.

Rice Taurant (1)

Get to know one of the reason that why the restaurant is name like that because of Asian’s culture that most of us need to have rice on most of our meals.

Ricetaurant offers best of dishes around the region that makes it a bit fusion style.

Rice Taurant (2)

I like the restaurant design in such a way that, it looks like a small little hidden cafe in some ally when I was in Melbourne, with tree trunk and very classic kitchen utensils to be party of the design.

Rice Taurant (3)

Rice Taurant (4)

The place is not big, but good enough to provide us a very comfy dining space, with paintings on the wall and open space kitchen right in the corner.

Rice Taurant (5)

I like their menu, it reminds me when I was in primary school on maths homework exercise  book. Price wise is pretty decent which is not too over price with their portion being served.

Rice Taurant (6)

1) Apple, Elderflower and Lychee – just a perfect drink that blend till just perfect that I can taste the apple skin and very tiny small cubes of lychee – Recommended

2) Hainanese Tea

3) Pineapple, Orange and Mint

Rice Taurant (7)

Chinese Olives & Seafood Fried Rice smells good, that already know enough ‘wok hei’. The rice were fried till perfect dry, very fragrant in taste and just find that the black pepper taste slightly over power the overall taste. If they reduce a bit, it would be perfect.

Rice Taurant (8)

One of my favourite of the night is Teriyaki Chicken, which had been marinated very well, then cook along that the chicken is soft and every piece that I bite, the chicken is well coat with the sauce. Recommended

Rice Taurant (9)

A plain simple fried rice, that lean towards very simple chinese style is Chicken and Long Bean Fried Rice. Very mild in taste yet fragrant in wok hei and if you eat along with some curry dishes, just good enough to be satisfied for me.

Rice Taurant (10)

Another star of the night is Claypot Chicken, Yam and Dried Prawns in Nam Yue Sauce. Cook so well that the gravy is just thick enough, and some yam that just melts along with it, with cubes of chicken is soft and perfect to eat along with rice. – Recommended

Rice Taurant (11)

Sweet and Sour Fish

Rice Taurant (12)

If I am not mistaken this is Belacan Fried Chicken which is out of my expectation, fried crisply and by dipping with the sauce adds a bit kick but I still think eat it plain is much better and along with any of the fried rice.

Rice Taurant (14)

If you love cuisine from east, then this is another must order dish – Ayam Percik with Nasi Ulam

Rice Taurant (15)

The trick is, you must mix everything up Oxtail Asam Pedas, Sambal Belacan, Salted Egg, Ulam-ulam, Salted Fish and then eat along. Taste is pretty authentic with the ones I have tried before.

Rice Taurant (16)

After we are so full, I still decide to try out their Black Sticky Rice with Coconut Milk. Sticky enough, as the black stick rice cook till its soft and its a suprise that they add in lychee that makes it natural sweet on fruits, as I have always like mine to mix along with coconut milk which makes it perfect. Not many places I get to enjoy this and certainly this is one of the recommended desert for me.

After the whole meal, we are just satisfied and surely we are going to return for more, as most of the dish here are quite authentic and nice.

I used to stay in Taman Paramount when I first came down to KL which is at my aunts place, I constantly dine at those 2 coffee shop for its cheap food and economy rice and I totally never knew there is one hidden Char Siew stall right behind at it which never mention by my aunt also. Ah Khai famous Char Siew Chicken Rice was not until one of my colleague went to ‘ta pau’ char siew for boss and client to eat for lunch, then she let us try out the char siew and its heavenly good. From there, we were talking about it how good it was and must go to the stall to eat.

**UPDATE: Ah Khai Char Siew NO LONGER OPERATE at SIMONS Delight as now had move a few shops up to RESTAURANT MEI YAN. . . .starting May 2011

NED_6425_resize

ah kai

It was not until last week, we decided to hunt it down for this marvelous ‘Char Siew’ that located in Section 17 hidden inside Restaurant Simon’s Delights. We manage to reach there early as the time of operating business is from 11am-1pm. . . I just cannot imagine people doing business for just 3 hours a day. It must have been brisk business.

ah kai (2)

Seeing those ‘Char Siew’ hanging there is like waving at us to order it desperately making us place our order we a portion of char siew for 3 pax a plate for 3 plates.

ah kai (3)

One of the funny thing that I ask the owner, ‘Are you Local’ cuz while I was eating there and I kept figuring, is he local or not to do such a great char siew. . and his answer Yes… I am local just that I am not as white ask you guys that work in the office, since young I got burn infront of the stove by helping parents out that’s how I turn dark or ah bu neh neh. . . I can say, a very friendly guy that talk a lot of nonsense.

ah kai (5)

‘Roast Chicken’ is quite normal, nothing much to brag about. . .

ah kai (4)

The first place of ‘Char Siew is mix with Roast Pork’ that actually we wanted to try it out too, suprisingly it turn out to be good too, with the skin roasted well till it is crispy yet do not broke our teeth, with perfect thin layer of fats in between the lean meat and dip with the chili sauce is just perfect.

After I took picture of it, this plate of combo was gone in seconds . .  till all 3 plates that got serve just gone. .  We order another round of purely char siew only.

ah kai (6)

Pure ‘Char Siew’ was one of the best char siew I have ever come accross, with it well roast char siew till it was well quoted by caramelised with the burn end layer. . You can either chose 70% fats and 30% meat as we go ahead with equal fats and meat that spread out very well, till the bite in our mouth it melts as the meat is so soft and tender till it break into slices and the fats melts along with it. . . Every piece of it, is burst with flavor and that is how we ended up ordering another two more plates purely on char siew. If you love fats like my friend, go for the heavy weight more fats less meat..you will definately enjoy it!

At the end of the meal, the coffee shop were sardin pack with people ordering char siew and tapau, we even order a few take away back to office for tea time. Surely I am going back for more, we consider it quite cheap, with so many order and it is not more than RM10. Worth Recommending this place if you are a char siew lover~

Do go early to avoid dissapointment . . .

A recommended Char Siew place~

Recently I stand a chance to party my way with International DJ’s from Europe. With their quality of music it makes me so miss the best Trance locally at Melbourne when I was studying that party during weekend which is after club then head to second session Hard Candy(if I remember correctly) which the entrance located at one of the alley. That was my very first exposure to local scene of Hardcore Trance. Then with yearly event GodsKitchen was one of the best that I can still imagine the scene how all my hard core friends shuffle all night long and chat and drink till the next morning that filled with famous International DJ.

Being a fan of house and not so into Trance but I cannot deny that certain DJ sure know how to spin and stir up the environment with their own mixing that I am enjoying. Of course I do tune in eery night to listen to my favourite house and trance music station Capital FM from 10-1am Daily..Just love their style of music for local DJ and also sometimes special appearence of Internation DJ and of course Jessica thanks for the tickets leiiii~

This M.C Asia Music Factory is brought to you by Global Sound Masters (GSM). With the invited DJ lining up are:

DJ Marcus Schossow

DJ Preach

DJ Marcel Woods

I was there early and manage to listen to our local DJ spinning and mixing it out with AFFIQ.

With the lighthing of the desk is not bad as I have seen better ones~

Partying all they way with all night long~

Then I spotted this, counter to purchase your alcohol~

Next local DJ is FunkoMunky which is one of my favorite local DJ for this music.

Me and Jessica

JunjunRiko and Me

Of course me and my buddy Desmond and my brother Jason, funny thing happen to him that night which I am not allow to reveal it out. lol~

and here comes the very first International DJ to start spinning, DJ Marcus Schossow. I just love the flow of the night from the very first DJ till changing to this DJ. Even though not much people but he do really bring the hype up.

I just love his style of music as because its of my favourite. Do not know what type its called but just enjoying myself.

Start camwhoring again Jason with Junjunriko.

Desmond, Jason and Junjun

Then there is a cute request by my brother asking me to take a picture for him as he said fast la..seldom got opportunity to stand first row 1..take the moment of me raving and supporting the DJ..

The moment dark out and the DJ slow down the music a little and everyone waiting the moment of the hard bass coming up.

With every one still preparing and waiting

when the bass hit, three of them trying to be like the Zombie in Thriller video clip..

then booty shaking all the way…

Racheal and Wilson, Me and Jessica

Start to slow the music down and now changing tooo………….

DJ Preach…. his style is Electronic Dance Music.. which is also my type of flow..~

Wilson, Me, Jason and Eugene

Jacquelyn(always forgot her name) n Jessica

Overall, on my thought the local music scene still have alot to improve of course cannot compare with DJ Tiesto when they are here but for this 3 great DJ’s with such crowd is kinda dissapointing but what the hell, as long as I enjoy the music~

I did heard about at Bukit Mertajam there is one famous Char Koay Toew stall located along a road side. Then went over to find my friend she do not really know the place so ended up in this stall which is she familiar with. It was quite late though around 1.30am looking for my supper over the mainland..hehehe

I do not know what is the name of the stall call but then there is a Chinese name I also do not know how to interpret.

The funny thing is that when I went to took the picture of what they were doing, both of them were actually trying their best to pose for me. This is how they ended up look like.

The place was rather empty because of the time.

When the plate was serve, I was quite shock that this is actually my very first time I seen a ‘Char Koey Teow’ add egg is the bulls eye type instead of fried it along. The taste is so so, nothing to boast a bout yet it is a bit oily yet cannot duck egg been fried doesnt taste much diff compare with normal egg.

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!!!!!!!
