After bubble milk hit hard on our local shores then what is the next buzz? Well, there are 2 actually as now little cafe’s are popping up in many corner and there are a few good ones and burger is also the next big thing here. One of the latest outlet to open its door to public is KGB (Killer Gourmet Burgers) that located the same row as Antipodean Jalan Telawi there.

KGB (1)

Its a small shop that operating around the area that soon to be filled with many coffee joints. Started off bout less than a month if I am not mistaken and its start to gain its popularity over the neighbourhood with a few bloggeres blogged about them.

KGB (2)

On our first visit we came it was rather dissapointed cuz we did not know the opereate only at night for the 1st month and for the following week, we decided to come back for dinner. STaff here are very helpful and friendly as they are explaining to us what to eat and try for first timer.

KGB (3)

Menu are pretty straight forward with what types of meat you prefer and there is not much to choose from which makes us easier to make up our mind.

KGB (4)

KGB (5)

chicken bites are pretty good though, fried to crips and the best thing to pair with it is their special made sauce. Light sourish end that goes well with it.

KGB (6)

Kimchi with Bulgogi Beef Fries @ RM 13.90

KGB (7)

this is another item that attracted our attention. Looks good but the taste is still room for improvemement as we did gave our feedback to them.

KGB (8)

If you cant take beef then this is one of the choices to go for. Seoul Chicken @ RM 15.90, find that the taste is bit funny.

KGB (15)

on the size of the chicken breast that they are using, its quite thick, and still juicy after fried.

KGB (9)

All their burgers come in their signature and one of the best is not only their patty is also their bun. I love it as its soft and fluffy yet toast to my likings.

KGB (10)

The Bobcat burger @ RM15.90 made with luscious green chili slaw & jalapeno mayo. If you cant take spicy then skip this as the spicy dont hit you instantly. It comes after that. To me its still okay.

KGB (11)

The Shack turns out to be one of my favourite in the list @ RM13.90 nett, the patty is fragrant and juicy top with a slice of cheddar cheese with Shack sauce sandwiched in the fresh, fluffy bread. I just called it Cheeze burger. One of the best in the list that wont go wrong. – Highly Recommended

KGB (12)

The Tornado @ RM15.90 – Looks big that filled with onnion rings, fried egg and fiery mayo. I expect this to be spicy because of the word fiery mayo but didnt enlighten me with that.

KGB (13)

I must say that the chef here are pretty good that able to make nearly all my range of burgers medium, that make it soft and juicy. All of us love it.

KGB (14)

this is one of the special homemade sauce. Its good!

Remark: Do take not that some of the burgers are filled with sauces and it might get messy . . Do take tissue to prepare. 😀

Hmmm, this year I do travel alot and lets start off with my Australia journey that I have done which I have always wanted to go back visit my friend. This round did not stop by Melbourne but head direct to Sydney. One of a trip that is pretty last minute but nevertheless I have to thanks to Jun Wen for all the best hospitality and knowing I love food he bring me to all his favourite restaurant – Bassim.

On my late arrival, it was well just nice for dinner time. Therefore he introduce me one of the place that he drop by at least once a week to whack on all his favourite beef slice. When he ask me am I okay for Korean BBQ, of course my reply is hell yah. As far as I know till date, there are still none of the Korean restaurant can still beat anything here yet.

Bassium (1)

Bassim – Steak and Seafood House is like a neighborhood restaurant that located in Strathfield which is about 25 minutes drive away from city. The reason being here is that nearby my friends house.

Bassium (2)

Its a place that fully pack with humans during dinner time as I snap this pic when they are about to close the shop. Yap, we ate from 8.30pm till closing. That’s how much and how long we spend our time there.

Bassium (3)

This is what I mean when getting a spot in the restaurant wasnt easy.

NED_3114

If without any conversion rate, the price is definitely much cheaper to any Malaysian restaurant can offer.

Bassium (5)

Normally, Korean restaurant will give you alot of side dish, but this shop give you selected side dish to pair along with their bbq.

Bassium (6)

AFter BBQ this is the ingredient that you have to wrap along with, a slice of cabbage, garlic, cucumber and green chili.

Bassium (7)

Dipping along with the sauce to make it even more perfect.

Bassium (8)

Charcoal BBQ that bout to bbq your favourite ribs away.

Bassium (9)

Before that, order Denjang (if I am not mistaken) Bean paste soup with vegetable and beef. A perfect dish to go along with its winter outside something to bring back body heat. Pouring the soup over to the rice just  makes it a perfect combination to eat along. Slightly sour with mild spiciness.

Bassium (10)

2 types of meat we order for the night is Spicy Dak Galbi @ AUD 16 marinated along with special spicy sauce.

Bassium (11)

Here comes our ribs So Galbi @ AUD 19 with 3 portion. Look how pretty the red meat is with their own special marination sauce.

Bassium (12)

AS the ribs was added on top, the smell of it generated is aromatic. Cant wait to get a bite of it.

Bassium (13)

Grill till its medium well and left the bone there to char grill. Beef had been own grill to perfection, flavorful, and the seasoning that they use, makes the beef slice juicy. I keep picking up the beef slice and keep ordering till I was totally stuff.

Bassium (14)

Along the way my friend order this, to be eaten along with Beef slice to make it even more kick. We ended up ordering 7 portion of beef and 3 portion of chicken for 4 pax. Definitely all of us are big eater. :p It was a very satisfied dinner, whereby I have long forgotten the best taste of it. At the end of the meal only understand that why this is his favourite Korean place or he rate Bassim is the best Korean BBQ restaurant in Sydney so far. If you do have the time, this is definitely a restaurant worth trying.

Sometimes, when you want to hunt for food, every state also got their own popular food. As for last round long weekend holiday, some friend brought me to his hometown for Ipoh Food Hunt to eat some great food which is nearby Ipoh called Pusing (click here). After that, we head back to Ipoh town to hit on some great food recommended by them.

ipoh (1)

There is this one particular little stall hidden under this huge tree. Some called it Under the tree Chee Cheong Fun. Its so famous that in a day he do only a few hours business. Not because he is lansi, just that alot people hunt for his food.

ipoh (2)

This uncle a humble and cheerful guy had been running this little stall for more than 10 years and it had gain popularity among the locals.

ipoh (3)

One of the different style compare to Penang is, he have created his own special sauce.

ipoh (4)

And there are 2 types of chee cheong fun, one which is plain and one which is with mince meat if I am not mistaken.

ipoh (5)

So its pair up with another family run little coffee shop and both of them make the whole place packed up within minutes.

ipoh (7)

This is what is so different from Penang style as Penang we use ‘heh koh’ (prawn paste).

ipoh (8)

But in Ipoh, this uncle had created his own special gravy that shower upon the chee chong fun and according to my friend the gravy is made of pork bones and other great ingredients that make it so rich and sweet in taste. Add on with spicy green chili, brown sauce and some chili sauce just makes it perfect for afternoon tea time. RM2.50 per plate

Some people like my friend will need to have 2 plates at least to satisfy their crave. I would say, if you have not given it a try, it is certainly worth to try, consider this is one of the most famous Chee Cheong Fun in Ipoh.

Remark: you might like it or don like it. More like a love – hate relationship.

Operating hours: 2.30pm till finish (means while stock last)

ipoh (11)

Also I notice alot people order White Coffee here, find out that its a bit strong, foamy on the top and just nice to go for afternoon tea. RM2 if I am not mistaken.

Lahat Lane,
Ipoh, Perak

ipoh (9)

Next is we have to go for what Ipoh is famous for where how white coffee started. Of course I was introduce by one of the best white coffee in Ipoh is located inside this coffee shop, Kedai Kopi Sun Yuan Foong.

ipoh (10)

A normal coffee shop that is packed with many people that usually comes here for breakfast, besides that, the Chee Cheong Fun I mention above, he will operate in this kopitiam in the morning from 8.30am till finish. (where usually finish around 11am)

ipoh (12)

Usually my friend will come here for breakfast and this coffee shop was recommended by 2 of my Ipoh friend already. Guess that it should be good!

ipoh (13)

This is the super star of all White Coffee, as it is in robust coffee that many of our locals will love, a bit thick in texture and for many coffee lovers, you will fall in love with this white coffee. I certainly would love to have 2 glass of this, but surely will hang over later as in yawn and fall asleep. – Recommneded!!!!!

ipoh (14)

This is what my friend will have for breakfast, hot white coffee and with this half boil egg with toast. .

ipoh (15)

Soft break like using the (bakery head brand) where you can find in pasar malam, toast to perfection and topple with this 2 half boil egg.

ipoh (16)

Besides all those white coffee, Ipoh also famous for its Ipoh Chicken Rice, as this is my very first shop I have visited when I first came to Ipoh is Restaurant Onn Kee. One of the reason last time my friend introduce me this shop was because many celebrities came by to this outlet to eat and that’s how I ended up here.

This is not only the restaurant avail as in this stretch of street there are 3 giant players in the area and this restaurant is one of it. Every one prefer different outlet and it really depends on your taste.

ipoh (17)

The crowd pour in non stop and the chef just non stop chopping on the chicken.

ipoh (18)

This is how busy the shop can be during long weekend. All shops are super crowded.

ipoh (19)

You will never want to miss the bean sprout in Ipoh as they are grown differently. According to my friend they are grown by using mineral water, therefore the bean spout in Ipoh is fat and juicy.

ipoh (20)

This is the Ipoh White Chicken (cantonese – Ipoh Nga Choi Kai).

ipoh (21)

Homemade pork and fish balls.

ipoh (22)

Silky smooth koay teow .. . .

Among 3 restaurant available in the area, this shop is my last choice, as the chicken texture and koay teow I do not really like it, but my friend prefer this shop.

Well, it depends on your individual taste as I prefer the one next to this shop. After your Chicken Rice, please do not miss one of the best Soya Bean (Funny Mountain Soya Bean – click here) which is just on the next street which is about 3 minutes walk. Total Damage was around RM 40 if I am not mistaken for a pax of 4
