Any of you love Penang food? I guess most of you do right and most of you would travel up North during long weekend for the awesome street food. Guess what! Now we have discover one new outlet that newly open in Kota Damansara recently that sell alot of best Penang street food under one roof, known as Penang One. Their first outlet is in Bandar Puteri, Puchong.

pg 1 (1)

Located in the heart of Kota Damansara where parking would be a big headache for you and this doesnt stop us from hunting it. Since our first visit, we have been going back as regular and I must say that the food is as good as where you can find in Penang. Definately not 100% but its at 80% similar which is good for us down in Klang Valley here.

pg 1 (2)

I am sure many of you still have yet discover fully where is the best food in Penang and the same goes to me. The owner have this big mission that wanted to provide folks in KL for good Penang food and therefore he himself as a Penangnite have work out a contract with all this famous hawker people to provide all the ingredients. All this being transport down to KL 2 days once. Therefore the taste is pretty much 80% the same as the famous hawker owner train all the staff themselves..

pg 1 (3)

The owner have marked down all the famous hawker stall location in the map and light history on the wall where he brought down here.

pg 1 (4)

Here you go on the list if you fancy any of the street food.

pg 1 (5)

Place here are pretty cozy and service here is pretty good~

pg 1 (6)

If you worry how they cook your meal and they have open concept kitchen for your viewing and those of you who loves the Tambun Biscuits & now they are available here too with the brand Him Heang which is one of my favourite brand. Now you need not queue that long as its while stock last daily.

pg 1 (7)

Lets see what we can have here and 8 of us are already very hungry.

pg 1 (8)

What is available in the menu is sufficient to stop our craving back in our hometown and we particularly ordered the whole menu, to try out on the taste.

pg 1 (9)

Homemade Otak Otak which is one of my favourite, no doubht that this taste exactly the same as one of my favourite stall. Steam to perfection that its soft on the outside and a huge slice of fish being inserted in the middle with fragrant leaves that absorb it very well. RM4.50 I have no complain in that.

pg 1 (10)

Those of you that miss Chee Cheong Fun, its all the way from Macalister Road. Prawn paste is good and just thick enough to coat around the chee cheong fun and although its not from my favourite Genting Kopitiam but this is as good as an alternative for me. @RM 3.90

pg 1 (16)

I certainly love Bak Chang – Special Dumpling @ RM 8.90 and alot people come here make a take away back to other country as they are being made fresh and air tight it in a pack of 8 if not mistaken. Then just put it into a boiling water for 5 minutes then you can eat it after that, with sticky rice and not too salty yet with generous amount of Ingredient.

pg 1 (21)

Another version of Bak Chang will be the white base and if not mistaken is the Teo Chew style as the filling is more towards peanuts. Not bad either as Ken loves this one and me prefer the traditional one.

pg 1 (17)

For Loh bak is hail all the way from Kheng Pin Kopitiam if not mistaken as I did saw a visual on that kopitiam on the wall. The Loh Sauce is as good as it is that is thicken, prawn crackers are fried to perfection. @RM 11.90

pg 1 (18)

The Asam Laksa is pretty well known in Lorong Selamat that I have not try before. When you talk about Lorong Selamat everyone’s thought would be Char Koey Teow! Nevertheless this is as good as it is, that cook with alot of mince fish meat and top with a few slices of fish as the top as we add on with additional RM1.50 . Soup is as good as the famous ones in Penang, sour enough and light spicy end with fish fragrant taste.. @ RM 8.50 

pg 1 (11)

This is another stall that I have not tried before in Penang which is Kampung Jawa Char Koey Teow and I ask my friend they say its very good and their business hours is only from 7am – 10am daily and have to wait at least 30 minutes – 45 minutes for your plate to be serve. Will go back and try the original one but before that, the Char Koey Teow in this outlet best most of the stalls in KL. Cook till with wok hei and the koey teow is slight dry to my linking and top with huge prawns @RM 9.50

pg 1 (12)

This is the Yam Cake @ RM 5.50

pg 1 (13)

Ahh, version of Curry Mee is hard to find in Klang Valley they need to be serve along with pork blood. Most of the curry mee here is in curry soup base. Penang version is, soup is fragrant with light pandan and mild santan taste the follow I add in one full scoop of curry to make it fiery red. Perfect as it is. @ RM 8.50

pg 1 (14)

I get to know that Klang Valley is not pretty well known for Duck Meat Koey Teow Soup but i have always love mine in this version. Sou is sweet and filled with duck meat, fish balls, pork balls and fish cake that all is home made except pork ball.

pg 1 (15)

If you love New World Park Ice Kacang then you gonna love this as it taste exactly the same. I prefer the Ice Kacang @ RM 6.50 more than the Cendul.

pg 1 (19)

This make no exception as well Tee Nya Kuih from there as well @ RM 3.50. Have to be serve chill then add in gula melaka to eat along. Soft as it is and gula melaka is not too sweet.

pg 1 (20)

Muar Chee @ RM 3.90, as the difference is the peanut base as its slightly more fine.

pg 1 (22)

Rojak @ RM 7.50 is not the best one from Penang to my own preference but some they love it as well.

pg 1 (23)

This is my very own special request on my chilhood snacks. A huge slice of Seng Kuang then top the rojak sauce on the top add on with peanuts after that.

pg 1 (24)

This is what happen to us when we found something good and hail all the way back from our hometown. We order so much that we inteded to give it a sharing at first and end up most of us having each plate each.

If you are craving for Penang food and lazy to drive all the way up north, here is one of the best place you can find in Klang Valley and no complain at all. It beats alot of stall out there, and had become our weekly affair,  some is daily. 😀

Price is pretty reasonable with the concept that the owner is trying to do and portion is average. Not too big nor too small or if you compare to KL serving portion its definitely slightly smaller. A highly Recommended place by me for Penang food.

Plan B had received a huge buzz over blogging for quite some time when they first started, cuz of their unique concept that they have. Modern New York chic concept that had gain many diners heart that is cosy, nice interior that made them stood out from many of other cafe outlet. Then I try out another of their concept or I would call a slight changes of their concept from Plan B which is Journal by Plan B at Publika. Many people say good things about this outlet on their food. I try out their brunch turns out to be good too. 

plan b (1)

with one of their latest outlet, Plan B at Paradigm Mall that located below Star bucks is one of the latest addition to the mall or expansion of their cafe.

Check out their interior design as this section is outside. . .chilling  .. .

Lets check out their menu . ..

plan b (10)

Latte @

plan b (11)

Soft Shell Crab Spaghetti Carbonara @ one of the more oustanding dishes compare to the rest we have although its near tasteless, with soft shell crab quite oily. .

plan b (12)

This soup is very normal, nothing special as it taste like alot MSG in there and its very salty . . .

plan b (13)

Cheese Burger

plan b (14)

It had won our heart when we first saw the presentation with melted cheese on top of the patty. Nothing special, yet sligltly salty . .

plan b (15)

Signature of the night which is Lamb Pie, over baked that the crust is hard as the colour itself already mention it, lamb in it is overcook and the best of all, its way too salty.

This is the first time we never finish our food yet Marcus was way too hungry, he tried to finish it just left a few bites and gave up. We ended went down to the lower ground to hunt for snacks. 😀

One thing I understand which is different mall have different market as this outlet we think that its a let down or the crowd for Plan B just love salty flavour or it was the chef that had overdoze it. Anyway, with the price that we are paying, we can try other food. 🙂

Hopefully they improve on that.

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.

In relationship is always one of the sweetest thing especially during the process of courtship, trying hard to win the girls heart over and the last result that would want to happen in relationship is to breakup which is the hardest thing to accept when you are already deep into it often think back by day dreaming sitting at your working desk or anywhere stare blankly dreaming with all the sweet moments, filled with laughter and quarrel time.

In the end of relationship the process is just painful.

I have walk pass this shop many times and I just do not have the heart to go in to try out, as the interior and the outlook of the outlet definitely look nice, yet I guess it just doesnt attract me, not till recently my friend plan to treat me eat Fruuze Frozen yogurt as its one of her favourite so well, free yogurt why not? 😀

fruuze (1)

fruuze (2)

A place that usually filled with families. . .

fruuze (3)

There are step 1  which to choose the size of the cup, step 2 to choose types of yogurt and step 3 to choose your toppings which is very similar to Tutti Frutti I had years back. (click here)

fruuze (4)

fruuze (5)

fruuze (6)

fruuze (7)

There are 4 flavours available. .

fruuze (9)

Choose your toppings

fruuze (10)

I tried original filled with Longan, almond flakes and mango cubes. . [email protected] RM 13.50 medium size

fruuze (11)

My friend she had chocolate flavour, cornflakes and chocolate cubes. [email protected] RM 9, small

Overall, this would not be my preference as on the downside, find it quite expensive as the same as all other yogurt, as Penang doesnt have much choice in Yogurt still J.Co yogurt stand out more in terms of taste and pricing followed by Tutti Frutti.

In KL my all time favourite yogurt is MooCow which I had alot of times and didnt blog yet, I guess shall blog about them next round.

I remembered when I was young and Toy Story came out for the first time I was so excited as it was one of the animation cartoon that we don normally get to watch every day, and I fell in love with it and watch over many times with my brother when we got to do. Toy Story 3

untitled
With Toy Story 3 coming back on screen, I definately would want to watch it again as I still remember how Woody and Buzz Lighthers went through all the hassle and adventure together. A great memory how this show captures our heart at that time and I believe part 3 would be a great story.

TOY STORY 3
Definately I am picking this ‘Chatter Telephone’ as I believe this character would be very cute, cannot resist friendly face till roll its eyes up and down and the pleasing sound keeps every one happy, cannot deny that now its one of the item that ideal for our hands, which I am looking forward for Nuffnang to give me a ring on the tickets.

untitled1

I am hoping to meet all the Toy Story fans, consider it a reunion on that day.. C ya~
