Japanese Yakitori ToriDoki at Hartamas had been here for ages. Just that every time I walk pass by, did not really want to go in till before MCO. Since it is so pack and why not give it a try.

Tori Doki (1)

Yakitori Tori Doki is famous for their yakitori which is more like Japanese BBQ skewers.

Tori Doki (2)

Tori Doki (3)

Its not an extensive menu but that is what they are famous for.

Tori Doki (4)

Not only that. They are famous for their Oden too. It is boil to perfection. Flavours from Chicken bone soup and Golden Dashi that had been boil for 8 hours. Just look at the colour of the soup. Thick and flavourful. Of course with Highball to go along.

Tori Doki (5)

In here is the 3 ingredient that I would usually order.

  1. Mochi Kinchaku – @ RM 7 – chicken mince and rice cake in fried tofu
  2. Daikon Radish @ RM 7
  3. Grilled Tofu @ RM 7

Tori Doki (6)

If you didnt handle with care on the Mochi Kinchaku, the mini thick broth in it is leaking out. One of a MUST have item.

Tori Doki (7)

Tori Doki (8)

Tori Doki (9)

For yakitori, I had:

  1. Sasami @ RM 7 – tender chicken breast with wasabi

If you are looking for Yakitori shop, this is definately one of them but for their ODEN, I must say it is one of the best I had so far. Could it be best ODEN in KL?

Of course there are another 2 more YAkitori shop which is nearby that I like:

  1. Yakitori Dining Fukuda
  2. Butakaya Izakaya

It had been a while since I last had quite a good Japanese Food. Yakitori Dining FUKUDA is one of my latest discovery that located in Sri Hartamas or just a stone throw away from Home n Away Bar. To my surpise that they had been operating for 4 years and little did I notice even I pass by the road 3-4 times a week.

As I walked into the restaurant, you will be greeted with the usual greetings. What surpise me that most of the diners there are filled with Japanese. Of course this makes the first impression that food in here will be quite authentic.

yakitori fukuda (6)

Smoked and flavours from Yakitori that is grilling fills the air, that my eyes are attracted to the pit. Making my stomach growls instantly.

Love the menu as the food here seem to be quite classic. Since there is 3 of us, we are starting off with:

yakitori fukuda (18)

1. Iburi-Gakko (Smoked Radish) with Cream Cheese @ RM 18.80. One of a unique item that I am trying for the first time. Was explain by the manager that the Smoked raddish is carefully picked by the owner and air flown all the way from Japan. No wonder the texture is so different. Give you little cruch yet a little chewy end. Cream cheese add the smoothness of flavour on it. – Recommended.

yakitori fukuda (21)

2. Karaage Fried Chicken @ RM 19.80

yakitori fukuda (29)

One of the classic or widely in the menu in some Japanese restaurant. Bara Chirashi @ RM 49.80 that is filled with  Sake (Salmon), Kampachi (Yellowtail), Hotate (Scallop), Ikura (Fish Roe) and Ebi (Prawn). I would say for the price I am paying, it seems all worth it as the sashim is fresh and quite genrous too. Just that I wish the soy sauce they use is slightly lighter and more fragrant (personal taste preference)

yakitori fukuda (30)

yakitori fukuda (24)

Spicy Miso Tori-Tonkotsu with Soup Ramen @ RM 28.80. Love the broth here, as it is slightly thick, pack with flavour and give you an instant punch of spicy yet it dissapear quite fast too. Great stuff.

yakitori fukuda (19)

Iberico Pork & Chicken Spicy Chanko Nabe with Chicken White Rich Soup (Sumo Hot Pot) @ RM 88.80 is quite interesting. Never know that Japanese version of hotpot will be in this format, as I always thought of shabu shabu or the smaller pot shabu. This is the bigger version and it is pack with Iberico Pork, Chicken Meat, Chicken Meat Ball, Mushroom, Enoki, Carrot, Cabbage .

yakitori fukuda (20)

Iberico pork balls, soft, tender and juicy. Punch with a hint of ginger too.

yakitori fukuda (34)
Eringi Mushroom with Foie Gras is grill to perfection. It grill to a thin crust layer on the outer of the skin that just crack slightly in your mouth yet the center is cook to medium that near melts in your mouth. The salt and charred taste make it a perfect piece not to be missed.  RM 36.80

This is What we are here for actually. Was told that they are quite well know for their Grilled Skewers and I must say, top notch!

I am happy that finally another decent eatery had just establish in Hartamas. Bai Wei Cuisine Restaurant (百味濃) bring had assemble variety of cuisine from different provinces in China, such as the classic dishes from Hainan, Teochew and more. This outlet is quite similiar to my personal favourite Tang Pin Kitchen at SS2 and their quality is pretty consistent over my past 3 random visits.

Bai Wei Cuisine (1)

Bai Wei Cuisine (3)

This outlet is situated at the same stretch of Old Town White Coffee, and parking here is not as bad as the other side.

Bai Wei Cuisine (2)

Bai Wei Cuisine (4)

Menu is quite straight forward too.

Bai Wei Cuisine (5)

Signature Hainan Tea (招牌海南茶) @ RM3.80 is a must order in this outlet as it is not your usual teh tarik however it is the Hainanese version that you got a 3 layer kind of tea that top with froth top. Not too sweet as the tea flavour is just right.

Bai Wei Cuisine (6)

There are a few item which is my usual order.

Bai Wei Cuisine (7)

If I come with a group of friends, Fried Dumpling (锅贴) @ RM 7 will be one of my order. Something simple that pan fried to perfection. Crips outside and ingredeint that need to stuff with ginger and vineger to my liking

Bai Wei Cuisine (8)

Bai Wei Trio Platter (百味三宝) is good for sharing. @ RM10.00. serve with 3 types of fish paste stuffed in crispy bean curd sheet with different types of preparation.

Bai Wei Cuisine (9)

For breakfast, one of my personal favourite is their Toast Bread (烘面包) @ RM2.50. It is a classic toast that stuff with a big slice of butter. Crispy and fragrant for a simple breakfast tthat I could ask for.

Bai Wei Cuisine (10)

Handmade Fish Paste @ RM 7. For my noodle, this will be my side dish to go with.

Bai Wei Cuisine (11)

For something unique which is not in your daily order would be this awesome Fried Fish Noodles and Chee Cheong Fun (炒鱼面猪肠粉) @ RM8.50.  A combination of koey teow and fish noodle that fried to perfection. Filled with “wok hei” as the fish noodle is chewy fragrant.

Bai Wei Cuisine (12)

Bai Wei Cuisine (13)

This is my all time favourite where you could not miss. My usual order is this Signature Noodle, Mee Pok @ RM 7.50  Noodle that topped with mince meat and park lard, serve with a side of fish cake slices. I would top at least 2 source plate of chilli to get a little of spiciness and saltiness in it.

Bai Wei Cuisine (14)

Hainanese Chicken Rice (海南鸡饭) @ RM 8. First time trying this and to my suprise, it is quite good. Generous amount of chicken meat and rice is fragrant.

Bai Wei Cuisine (15)

Golden Homeland Noodles (黄金家乡面) @ RM8.50

Bai Wei Cuisine (16)

Fried Porridge (绝味炒粥 – 两人份) @ RM13.00 (Serves two). I could not finish a bowl myself and indeed it had to be a sharing portion. Like the fragrant of it and those who love strong taste, this is indeed a perfect bowl for you.

Bai Wei Cuisine (17)

For a meal which is not very heavy in flavor yet very comforting, Celery Noodles (芹菜面) will be the best option as it is serve with clear soup and noodle is hand roll by the chef with a mixture of fresh celery in there. As you pull up the noodle, you can see dots of little greens in it. Those of you do not like celery taste, you might not like it.  @ RM8

Bai Wei Cuisine (18)

Bai Wei Cuisine (19)

Put Put put your hands up if any of you out there especially KL folks do not know Inside Scoop? One of a famous ice cream shop that made fresh gelato. The Ice Cream Bar located at Desa Sri Hartamas is one of their latest venture that specialize in alcohol flavour and of course I believe Singleton is one of their main partners for this.

Their interior is nicer, with specious seating area.

For ice cream lovers, they ice cream display is usually arrange by the bottom row is alcohol flavored and their usual famous classic flavours are on the top side.

The ICe Cream Bar (9)

Constantly I am there for their alcohol flavored as the price is very decent as compare to many of softserve or ice cream parlor out there. Still this is my bench mark and their alcohol series especially with Singleton its a great choice to order. One of their regular there and do bare in mind that their customer service can be down the drain.

Best of all, their waffle is top notch too. If you do have space for your tummy after meal, do consider that as one of the item to hit on.

I have been passing this road daily to head to work and little did I know that there is actually a cafe sitting in this building. This building which is rather new that recently open its door to public that comes with service apartment and residence. The Forum is located at the lobby of this building facing Hartamas.

the forum (1)

It looks like a huge glasshouse, nice interior and a mezzanine floor.

the forum (2)

Lovely cafe with spacious seating area and not to mention friendly crew. 

the forum (3)

the forum (4)

They have cake of the day and I must say Humming Bird Cake is a must try cake. Soft, fluffy, and cocunut crumbs ontop adds on the little flavour of it. 

the forum (5)

the forum (6)

For today, we are delighted that we will be enjoying our brunch with Moet Brunch pairing. 

the forum (7)

From the menu which cost at RM 128nett which will serve you a minature Moet and also their signature main’s and also a dessert for you and additional bottles are priced at RM78.00 nett

the forum (8)

A bubbly afternoon to kick start on the day.

the forum (9)

Prime Angus Sirloin steak with roasted chat potatoes and asparagus serve with demi-glace

the forum (11)

Another main is Pan Seared Salmon Mousse stuffed with asparagus, Dill & Prawn with rich lobster gravy. For this, the salmon might be slightly over cook however the rich lobster gravy is pretty strong and intence that give the richness of the dish and goes well with bubbly Moet to end it with mild sweet taste and hint of sweet lobster sauce is tasted.

the forum (12)

When it comes to dessert, Orange Creme Brulee, white Chocolate Mousse & Berry Sorbet is nicely presented in a set of 3.

Raspberry Truffle with Tullie is rather interesting with richness of its flavour.

Among the 3, Raspberry Panna Cotta has the most beautiful presentation among all as this is definitely one of it that won our hearts over. It looks to pretty to be eaten. serve with Tempered Chocolate in a cage caramel dome.  

the forum (16)

Upon eating it, in the middle it gives you the little surprise with raspberry oozing out.

the forum (18)

This is how greedy my friend is, having all by herself along by kidnapping my portion.

the forum (19)

End my meal with coffee and I quite like the coffee here (which is not part of the set) Mild, not acidic, that suits to my liking. 


In their menu, they also highlight their signature Soy Chai Latte @ RM 18. It is price so high with a reason as they use fresh herbs and ingredient in to fill up a glass. Those of you are not use to the taste might dislike it. For me I still prefer my classic chai.


One thing to take note,  as they are new establishment that open its door to public less than a month and when it reach full house, food might be slow and quality might be slightly different, as I have been here a few times and encounter different version, nevertheless there are still room of improvement for them as food is decent, coffee is spot on and service is great. 

Bubbly Brunch is only available from 1st December 2015 to 31st January 2016, on weekends from 11.00 am to 4.00 pm. Prior reservations are encouraged, kindly contact +603 6412 0833 or +6013 266 1333.
