I guess I am running off abit from my blog besides food but I really really really must blog about this awesome live stage performance. ROCKCAPPELLA by FORK. At first when we wanted to go watch the show, every one is skeptical, even me by asking who are they. Some of my friends also have a thought that aiya, singing live just pop in and enjoy then.

As they are out from the stage performing their first songs all of us thought that its very normal as they are hitting off with old songs. Right after the first song one of the performer told us that what we heard just now is all live and without any support of music instruments and sound effect. Then it had made my jaw drop with those awesome base and background music.

Later he explained that, 4 of them, Mia Hafrén and Jonte Ramsten, former police cadet Kasper Ramström and vocalist Anna Asunta have combine talent to make the whole group work as they have been working together for 15 years and performing world wide. Fresh from Finland and flying all the way to Malaysia to do their first ever stage performance with all of them have talent to sing, beat boxing and its not just only ordinary Rockcappella,as they are more than that.

A series of combination with Rock music, contemporary cover and humorous stand-up comedy that just blast us off and make our night a blast.

Fork (3)

Staging might be small as I went to Google and check their other performance, and definitely PJLA Theater with the lighting and sound effect had made the whole performance to another level.

This is one of the most funny part that he came out with fake  rock long hair. . .

I am really amaze with this guy, as most of the heavy base and tune are coming out from him by beatboxing. In my thought, oh my.. now I have seen another great beatboxer and what willl happen to our local scene beat boxer.

Although I studied in Melbourne for 3 years, neither did I know that Melbourne actually famous for Peking Duck. Then I went to Google about it and surpise to see that this outlet Melbourne Peking Duck is actually serve awesome Peking duck that written by many bloggers there. Quickly I watsapp my friend there, and she mention its a recent thing that got pick up over the past 3-4 years. Means it was after I left. Most of you studied there would know this restaurant Old Kingdom, that serve pretty good Chinese dish. Guess what? The master chef is here in this outlet preparing and coordinating all the dish here especially on his specialty Peking Duck.

MElbourne (1)

Now to those who are craving for Melbourne Peking Duck you need not take 747 all the way back there as they have just arrive in KL that started operate right about 2 weeks. The restaurant operate right in the heart of Bangsar or I would say directly opposite Alexis, Bangsar.

Easily to be located and the sign board already very prominent to capture your attention.

MElbourne (2)

As I went up here, the restaurant is still under its final touch as for now on 90% complete.

MElbourne (3)

this is what I meant 90% complete as the final 10% touch up are decorations in the outlet.

MElbourne (4)

I find that the price are pretty reasonable especially with Peking Duck set. With RM 78  you get a peking duck with 3 more dish conversion or RM88 with additional dish. Set 2 definitely capture my attention more.

MElbourne (5)

Chili paste taste awesome is something that you must not miss to add into your fried noodle or even into your peking duck roll.

MElbourne (6)

Here came our order that, the duck neck is long it shows that the duck is roast by hanging. Its shinny skin and roasted smell of the duck   distract our attention in take picture of the duck. Smells so good~

MElbourne (7)

As the crispy duck is ready to be skin, we cant wait to grab a piece of the skin and directly put it into our mouth.

MElbourne (8)

The master chef is here, we are proud to have him back as, at first thought I thought he is from China that resides in Australia. Well, all of us are wrong that he is actually a Malaysian with more than 10 years experience working in a famous restaurant for peking duck also stayed in Melbourne for more than 10 years.

As the chef cut thru the skin, can see moist fats oil oozing out from the meat. Saliva dripping.

MElbourne (10)

Here are the fine cut with sligtly cut meat along and ready to be wrap around. I quickly throw one piece into my mouth, I can sense that more peking duck is calling my name. 😀

The difference between the ducks that I previously had over a restaurant last week (click here) are, Melbourne Peking Duck cut with meat are slightly thicker and fats on beneath the skin just perfect.

MElbourne (11)

Then we were thought how to wrap on the chinese pancake along. Not only that, their pancake is home made fresh in the kitchen upon ordering as you can still feel its steamy hot, and have to quickly do the wrapping while its warm.

Lay the cucumber and spring onion on your 3 o’clock direction, add on your prefered amount  of sweet hoisin sauce, follow by laying the duck skin atop, fold half from 9’oclock to 3 o’clock direction and fold both ends together.

MElbourne (12)

Tadaaa…simple and easy to eat. The taste of crispy skin and duck meat along with the sauces just burst with flavours inside my mouth and I love the taste of the pancake. Think yet aromatic, pairs well with the peking duck. We end up having 2 duckie.

MElbourne (13)

As the duck is being slain, do not miss out duck drumstick. Moist meat with crispy skin on edges, dipping along with the sauce is just perfect.

After we have clear all the skin on the duck, what happen to the meat. Well, remember the set I was mention, it was then further slices the meat out to cook along with other dishes as below:

MElbourne (14)

As we were half full then we ordered Fried pork

MElbourne (15)

Salted Egg Yolk with Butter Chicken.
Buttery butter, balmy chili leaves ,with extremely light and thin ‘egg filament’ .

MElbourne (16)

Stir-fry beansprout with shredded duck meat. I prefer this is something light for me, yet this is the first time I came across bean sprout fried along with duck meat. Turns out to be pretty good.

MElbourne (17)

Homemade Tofu with fish meat

MElbourne (18)

MElbourne (19)

Another well cook dish is Shredded Duck Meat Fried Rice. Fragrant with ‘wok hei’ and the chili paste I mention, just bring the extra flavour out of it.

MElbourne (20)

Shredded Duck Meat Fried Flat Noodle. Stir-fry with dark soy sauce, loads of crunchy bean sprouts and shredded duck meat. We were so full when this dish came. Underestimate the make over of the duck.

MElbourne (21)

One of my favourite of all, its a very different version on the salty veggie duck soup I had as this bends towards more mild taste as after all heavy weight being serve first, this retaurant serve the soup in opposite direction. Its at the end. Something mild and nice to close off my appetite.

As last 2 week I also had peking Duck in another restaurant (click here) and here I am again to hunt for another good one. Verdict, this 1 stood out better.

The restaurant is newly operated do give a restaurant a month or 2 to improve on their dishes. If you are looking for nice Peking Duck, no doubt that this is one of the restaurant to hunt for. Good for you guys that stay nearby there. Recommended on their Peking Duck.

AS I was in Jakarta, I miss my friends there, and some of them arrange to meet at this new neighbourhood bar Hops & Malts as I Google it and some Indonesia bloggers do blog about this place as I quite worried that not many searchers will appear. Apparently this bar is also quite well known for their food as I did not try it out. Was here for a drink and chill with my friends here.

hops n malts (1)

Located in the new development around the area in Ruko Garden House, North Jakarta, smack with alot of F&B units and this is one of my friends, Ryard favorite hang out place. I also do observe that there are many young Indonesians hang out around here also.

hops n malts (2)

Love the ambiance of the bar which is simple with red brick wall design by playing R&B and house as background music at that time.

hops n malts (3)

hops n malts (4)

simple casual seating area. .Casual also they do have games such as Beer Pong, Beer Dart and Beer Roulette for you to play along with your friends.

hops n malts (5)

and outdoor too as it was pretty empty on weekdays and I was about to leave it was full . .

hops n malts (6)

Price of the food are pretty reasonable ..

hops n malts (7)

So try out their local beer Anker – A deep golden pilsner with creamy foaming head, strong flavor, delicious well balanced bitter taste and full body, something like Tiger crossover with Carlsberg. In my own opinion. Kekeke .. (forgot to tale the bottle)

They have another funny name for the beer is called Kuda Putih (White Horse) and my friend do not like it so did not order.

hops n malts (8)

This is one hell of a great fries with bacon and bbq sauce top with some cheeze dressing on top and goes perfectly well with our beers.

hops n malts (10)

Its a nice small little neigbourhood bar to pop by after work or hang out with friends. Had a great time there by meeting some my friends there. It was a busy day for me as non stop meeting friends there. 😀

Pass here many times, whenever I dine nearby and there is this rustic kopitiam that always draw my attention that tug in the middle of the whole stretch of shop lot. It does not look like a place fully pack with people just that the ambiance and a few chicken that hanging right outside the shop always have the urge to make me go in. You will be suprise on Restaurant Soo Kee.

soo kee (1)

After Google out about this place only realise that they serve pretty authentic Ipoh koey Teow Soup that many of my boss like it also, as its more like a neighbourhood business. According to our boss, this place is one that serve authentic recepi from the family compare to the others available and do not really use MSG in the food, that’s how he is one of the regular there as he is sensitive towards MSG. As he told us, this place is also run by the whole family. .

soo kee (2)

What is written on the stall are all their signature.

soo kee (3)

Just look at this guy how he eat with his expression . . priceless. . 😀

soo kee (4)

One of the signature Prawn Wantan that serve in a bowl with easily there are 8 pieces along. Love the texture of the wantan as its not too solid yet can chew the whole prawn yet not too big. Soup base is a bit strong with peppery as if it is slightly less then would be just nice.

soo kee (5)

When the Steam Chicken is serve, it look so silky smooth and the special sauce that they have is just aromatic that trails through my nose. Undenieable that the first bite of the chicken automate me continuous to pick up 2nd piece, 3rd pieces as one of the smoothest chicken that I have come accross, best of all, its boneless. Every piece can just smack right into your mouth and usually chicken breast part is pretty dry and solid, as I guess Soo Kee have their own style of making it juicy yet smooth.

After check back my pictures only I realise that I forgot to take picture on the smooth koey teow soup. Its actually like you go MacD ordering a set, its the same as Soo Kee that when you come here you need to order their signature set that serve Steam Chicken, Wantan and Koey Teow Soup then that’s the perfect combo of all for this shop.

If you are asking me are they the best, I have no idea. I can say one of the best steam chicken that I have come accross, surely will come back again as its pretty near my office.

Last year it was a big hit with anything on pork that is mushrooming all over especially pork burger. You name it, how many restaurants are there with pork burger and how many are pretty good? What I would say is there is a hidden gem in SS2 that I recently come across or introduce by my colleague as she said, ‘Bok’ since you ate so much I am pretty sure you gonna love this shop. She bring me heading directly behind one of my favorite shop Spicy Chili Pan Mee (SS2 Branch) and discover this family own fast food outlet Wallop Pork Burger.

wallop (1)_resize

When I arrive this place I scratch my place, why is this fast food chain hidden so inside in the housing area instead of bustling area of main street in SS2. What I am saying is that, this shop is located at another side of SS2 whereby Kayu Nasi Kandar is located.

wallop (2)_resize

Is just one thing I do not understand. After I Google some article on it and found out that they prefer to be station here as they would love to control their quality of the pork burger.

wallop (3)_resize

Design on the outlet is simple and straight to it, our mind is pork burger…. pork burger… pork burger. . .

Another thing that capture our attention is we can build our own burger!!!

wallop (4)_resize

What it means is just order the burger and then add on these toppings to customize on your best taste preference or what you feel like to have on your burger.

wallop (5)_resize

wallop (6)_resize

I got to know also that their pork patties are done fresh, with fresh garnishing and fresh buns to ensure we get the best of the flavour or we enjoy it.

wallop (9)_resize

Sergeant Wallop would welcome you to their shop.

wallop (7)_resize

In their fast food menu everything is rather simple and fast, as its only one type of burger you can choose and the other difference is that how many patties you want. Single, Double or Triple.

wallop (8)_resize

Single – Mamma Wallop, Double – Papa Wallop or Triple – Sergeant Wallop. One that I am keen to try is Hot Boy with their very own spicy sauce.

They have a meal combo also that serve in 2 catagory which is Single Mama Wallop Set (RM9.80) and Double Papa Wallop Set (RM12.80) , after looking at the menu I would think that the burger is kinda small and decided to go for Papa Wallop set. These set starting from RM 9.80 comes with fries and a drink (A&W or Coke)

wallop (10)_resize

Here is my pork burger with Bacon and Mushroom and all of us are in love with this pork burger. The patties are well season with their own recipe not too thick with the right size, grill to perfection that make it moist and juicy, bun that toast quite well to compliment together with the patties and dressing that added on doesnt make it too moist. The whole function of my mouth was just keep biting and biting while enjoying every bite of it. Their fries are pretty good too ..

What happens in the end? Called afew of my friend and Ta pau for them and they love it too. Pork lovers, you guys must not miss this.

Remark: I would advise that for girls can go on for Papa Wallop as the patties are pretty thin slice and for guys you would definitely love on their Sergeant as its the right size for us.

Definitely this would be one of my recommended pork burger shop if you are craving for one nice burger and its easy to find parking here cuz not many people head to this area. Do Drop by and give it a try~ I am sure you gonna love it as how we did.

Fancy for Satay? Just got to know that there is another branch of famous Kajang sate in Damansara Uptown, that according to my friend, this outlet or brand is one of their favourite, so this round they tag me along too. In Google, you type it out only I realise they actually have alot of branches every where. Guess this is another franchise chain or family own business? Sate Kajang HJ Samuri.

KJ (1)

KJ (2)

Nevertheless, it is always 80% full in this outlet and the amount of customer make the take away is amazing like 100 sticks, 200 sticks to ta pau away.

KJ (3)

This is how busy their sate grill er place will be that been preparing and cooking non stop.

KJ (4)

According to my friend, what makes them keep returning back is their secret chili ingredient which is quite spicy if you add more and just add the perfect kick in it. Peanut sauce is grind till ashes and add some peanut pieces still able to chew.

KJ (5)

Besides satay they also sell other ‘Goreng food’

KJ (6)

This is the pricing of Satay that usually a person would eat at least RM10 per pax averagely as 10 sticks of satay as your main meal would be just enough.

KJ (7)

Chicken would be the perfect order as grill and marinated to perfect as the meat is soft and nice. . .

KJ (8)

Then order extra with Kambing (Mutton), Daging (beef) and Perut (stomach) – I prefer the beef more tender and taste is pretty good!

KJ (9)

This is the stomach if not mistaken.

Overall, the taste is pretty good and they certainly have many returning customers like my friends, at times can dine 2-3 days in a row .. *faint

A famous sate stall that worth a try as the brand inself already famous in the community.
