I guess that now desert franchise industry is mushrooming every where and so fast with all those Taiwanese and Hong Kong brand flooding in. One of the latest desert shop from Hong Kong that I heard from my friends that just open its door not that long is this Tong Pak Fu. It is quite a well known brand in Hong Kong and now it had arrive in Malaysia.

Tong Pak Fu (1)

I would say on weekdays is pretty pack with people. .

Tong Pak Fu (2)

A very simple desert shop decoration . .

Tong Pak Fu (3)

Its a self service shop, whereby you have to come to the counter and order your desert then they will serve it to you on your table ..

Tong Pak Fu (4)

You will be pampered with their huge selection of desert that is available and nearly all looks good. . Just not to be greedy, so we pick some of their recommended desert to start off with . .

Tong Pak Fu (5)

Chilled Mango Sago Creme with Pamelo @ RM 7.80

When we taste the mango, we sure know that its not a local mango, as for local mango it wont taste so so sweet and flipping back the menu only know that its imported mango’s from Philipines. Taste not too creamy, which both of the taste of sour pamelo and sweet mango paired up very well . ..

Tong Pak Fu (6)

Trecka Durian Snow Ice @ RM 14.80

For shave ice desert, especially on durian flavor, I would say this is the super star of the night, what makes us order this is when we enter the shop we smell very strong durian and its very aromatic and we instantly flip into the menu to search for this flavour and they do have it. We ordered it then.

A superb desert especially for durian lovers, that it taste exactly like eating the durian flesh itself, very strong near to D24 that kind of taste, not too sweet and we just cant stop eating it. Highly Recommended for Durian lovers!

Tong Pak Fu (7)

Chocolate Lava Cake with vanilla Ice-Cream @ RM 12.80

Tong Pak Fu (8)

Based on our observation, this is one of the item that in house crowd mostly order, and we did not order wrong. . The last time I ate this kind of choco lava desert was when I was in Melb under one of my fav shop, Max Brenner . . Besides that, now this is one of the similiar taste that once cut cake then the chocolate just ooze out  . . . I might be too sweet for me, but if eat along with the ice cream is just nice. perfect for choco lovers.

Overall, this shop certainly stands out compare with other available shops in Malaysia.

About a year ago, Sunway Giza used to be quite a deserted area to be hang out with as I remembered for the very first time when I visited the place about a year ago, it was very dead where about 2-4 FnB outlets were operating in the area and now, the whole place is so happening. Coffee Chemistry Cafe

[updated – July 2014- no longer in operation]

That now house a lot of FnB and bars too besides simple grocery shopping, and now a lot people head to Sunway Giza for happy hour and friends meeting up. One of the place that I have been a lot of times that I just didn’t blog bout it till now, as all of you sure know a pub which is quite happening in the area Movida, which is one floor above them, hidden one very hidden gem, Coffee Chemistry,Cubic Plateforms that now known by many people for its good coffee, hang out place, for many friends and families

As when you opened the door, you will be a bit shock that HTC and Digi are in it too then smack this little cafe with them.

coffee chemistry (2)

Where alot people hang out here where I observed many of them are coffee lovers that just come by here to have a sip of coffee with friends and family while just enjoying their time.

coffee chemistry (3)

A mini kitchen that will blow your mind away with their very own recepi .. .

coffee chemistry (5)

I am not a big fan of coffee drinker as I always order something unique then this caught my attention with ‘Roasted Almond Cafe @ RM 9.50. I find that the almond taste is just there that the coffee is not too strong to overpower it instead it pair up very well, and I just love my cup of coffee.

NED_8152_resize

One of my usual in a cafe to start off with is Mocha @ RM 6.90, with very nice coffee art, and the chocolate  makes the cup of coffee blends well, that is now one of my favourite. .

NED_8151_resize

Flat White that covers with a very thin froth that is just nice to sip for a Sunday afternoon.

NED_8153_resize

Many places are not able to served Iced Mocha the way I like and when I come across this icy drink, it was above my expectation that the milk is light, able to preserved the taste of coffee and chocolate taste in it with the ice cubes do not dilute it after quite some time, which is pretty impressive.

coffee chemistry (6)

Then I asked the boss what is best to start off with and recommended Homecook Mushroom Soup @ RM 9.90, when this bowl of soup was served, while I was taking this picture, I just snap quickly and put down my gear to try it out, as the arome of the creamy milk just so nice, yet one of a unique taste of mushroom soup that I come accross, its not thick, yet mild creamy, filled with lots of fine chopped onion and mushroom, that makes me finish this whole bowl by myself. – Recommended~

coffee chemistry (11)

For greens or healhty eating, they offer Salmon Caesar Salad @ RM 15.90

NED_8162_resize

and Chicken Caesar I find it taste better in terms of the chicken breast is well marinated and soft that goes along with this light meal.

coffee chemistry (7)

One of the dish that did suprise us all when he told us one of his best seller is Bacon Fried Rice that looks pretty dull plain and while put into our mouth, it was burst with aroma, with ‘wok hei’ with such a small kitchen, and it is very generous in ingredients that every mouth full is filled with bacon. Another dish to Go after!

coffee chemistry (8)

Those who felt that would want to eat something light, Salmon Wrap @ RM 8.90

NED_8156_resize

Another item that I quite like in their menu is Homemade Pizza (which I forgot this name of it), is very similiar to one of my favourite hawker pizza (Frankie’s Pizza) that made with home crust bread toast it then filled with lots of ingredient, cheeze just melted on top to make it a bit salty nice.

NED_8158_resize

Beef Herbs Speghatti in Spicy Cream Sauce, usual I go on extra spicy, then this round I decided to try the beef and in normal taste. Love the creamy base of it with fine chuncks of onion, that I would prefer it without the green papper taste of it.

coffee chemistry (9)

Al-Funghi Pasta @ RM 13.90

coffee chemistry (10)

Filled with lots of garlic slices, onion and mushroom.

I would say that this place surely do served very good coffee that can beat many outlets out there, as the coffee is not too strong that can suits many taste bud even not for coffee drinker like me and the after aroma of it is mild and stays in our palate for quite a while that I just like it. For strong coffee drinker, you might not like the mild taste of it, with the quality, I am sure you will enjoy a bit.

[No longer in Operations] – since 2012

In my list, when I do not know where to hunt for food, there are 2 places which is my favourite hunting ground which is Kuchai Lama and Kota Damansara but after recently I went again to Kota Damansara and make a few rounds around that area before heading to the newly build mall Sunway Giza, I could not denied that now I would rate that place as food heaven. Can you imagine that, there are more than 50 restaurants and hawker center just around that area?

If you are bored with normal food, then head to Cravings at Sunway Giza that offers variety of unique food. Be prepared to be amazed by some of their signatures

craving

I have seen many bloggers blog about a restaurant in this place, and I we went to this new restaurant which is only 2 weeks old at this mall, Cravings.

I love their design how the make their exterior look with white wooden plants on the wall that makes them stand out compare to the rest.

craving (2)

The lower ground interior is a simply modern café style design that makes it cozy for a simple gathering or dines in.

craving (3)

You can choose to walk up to the upper level by the spiral stairs or another entrance at the side.

craving (4)

craving (5)

On the second floor is lit with blue lights to create ambiance for drinking session as they have a bar in that area.

craving (7)

I would say, they have a unique menu with a reasonable price.

craving (9)

Behold for the night to kick off with one of their signature, that caught our eyes big wide open with their ’12” Cravings Monster Burger’ @ RM25.90

If you tell me, I have always eat a foot long or consider 12” Subway sandwich but I have never eat a 12” burger before. We were all like, woahhh…. And we just cant wait to get our knife and fork to dissect it as the aroma of the Pattie smells good, it is serve with 4 different patties (all home made by the chef) – Vegetarian, Lamb, Chicken, Beef, bacon and cheese.

craving (8)

This is the look of Ken as he is raping the burger with his eyes.

craving (10)

How we eat it, simple as we often play Jengga, you make the whole thing collapse then start eating it.
