I am starting to like Setia Walk in Puchong to be appear another main joint of drinking and eatery place. Spreading out their lovely landscaping that is one of the main crowd puller that provides great ambiance which is something unique compare to other mall. Bondi Junction.

This would be my second time here as still find parking here is a bit confusing or there weren’t proper signage up yet at the moment. Last round that I came, I visited Sushi Tei and now came back here for second round, we are in hunt for one Mediterranean food located at Block F level one. First timer here looking for this shop, surely will be lost locating. Just look for Ding Tea, and its above it.

Bondi (1)

A simple casual dining place whereby you can just hop in anytime. A place whereby its decorated with simple hanging decorations, and why Australia flag is there, its because mainly the influence are from Australia, hence Bondi Junction is the name of the shop whereby its a place in Sydney.

Its pretty amazing that they have this open concept kitchen yet you don feel that the smoke from kitchen is coming out. Maybe its non-air condition and pretty well ventilation around the area that do not make us feel it.

Bondi (7)

A simple menu with good offerings for us to hunt from. Price of dish are pretty decent.

I have tried this previously when we first drop by after my meal at Sushi Tei and instally we fall for this Focaccia Bread with 4 dips @ RM25. Made freshly by the chef with only limited offerings available. When it was place onto the table, the aroma of the freshly bake bread with rosemary and olives dotting the flat loaf entrails into our nose and just couldn’t wait to get a bite of it. .

Comes with 4 dips: sun-dried tomatoes, feta cheese, black olives and balsamic vinegar, and I prefer the sundried tomato and feta cheeze are awesome combination.

Bondi (9)

Wild Mushroom Soup @ RM 11 are all in homemade style with fresh ingredients that cook on the spot. Its flavourful that we need not even add in any black pepper that the taste is already there. How could we resist the temptation of this.

Bondi (10)

Roasted Pumpkin and Red Capsicum Soup @ RM 11 would be something unique for the night as there are hint of little spicy pepper taste and both are equally good. In the end, we order the soup again for another round.

Bondi (11)

This doesnt look like pizza as the own version of Bondi Junction Meat LoversRM25 topped with turkey ham, pepperoni, minced beef, onions, capsicum, olives and mozzarella. The dough are prepared daily for pizza and made fresh. Its slightly different from any other pizza that I had as the crust is thin and near to bread. I prefer meat lovers more.

Bondi (12)

Bondi Special @ RM27 – with basil pesto, olives, sundried tomatoes, capsicum, pepperoni, egg, onions and mozzarella.

Bondi (13)

To me, super star of the night would be Beef Lasagna @  RM18. After one bite of this, it instantly hit onto my top chart as one of the best. Soft filling inside out with carefully baked melted cheeze on top, with chef special tomato base sauce that make it outstanding. -Highly recommended for Beef as I think it taste much better than Chicken.

Bondi (14)

Beef Bolognese Spaghetti @ RM15 Minced beef  in Napolitana sauce with basil and parmigiano. I think this is not bad as I had the lasagna first and I think it had overpower the taste this. Spaghetti is al-dante.

Bondi (15)

Most people would misfire this dish – Chicken Gordon Bleu @ RM30 for one of a simple reason that the chicken breast would end up very dry. As for here, it suprise us that its not dry yet still quite juicy and aromatic with cheeze & ham taste in it. Well done.

Bondi (16)

Stuffed Seafood Chicken @ RM30 is one of a unique this that I have come across as  pan-seared chicken roulade stuffed with chopped seafood served with pistachio sauce, greens and grilled herbed potatoes. Its a very well balance dish with greens, roasted potato and the sauce of pistachio taste unique. What makes it perfect is with red wine that pulls the taste up very well.

Bondi (17)

Roasted Salmon with Red Pesto @ RM32 a dish that looks very healthy to me. With colourful veggie and lemon for you to squeeze on.

Bondi (18)

Comes dessert time, rarely no one will say no.

Bondi (19)

Crème Brulee, Classic Apple Pie and French Lemon Tart, @ RM10 each.

Bondi (20)

At that point, we were pretty stuff and yet the picture of this Russian Benny @ RM17 – fatty salmon, mushrooms and toast with the thick creamy Hollandaise sauce keep calling our name. Its  agreat breakfast that we order 2 portion. Do let the waiter know you prefer runny yolk as one dish the yolk are pretty cook. Of course with this great breakfast would not be complete with. . . Coffee.

Bondi (21)

Coffee in Bondi Junction are pretty good. I love their Mocha and Flat white. They are price in between RM6 and RM9

Valentines is just around the corner and looking for something pretty simple with great food, definitely this outlet would be another recommendation by me even for ordinary dining with friends and family.

I have ordered before on sausage platter but for the first time, this is the most unique sausage platter that seriously served with 7 types of different sausage ‘Wurstplatte (sausage platter) mixed German sausage platter, served with sauerkraut, potato salad, senf, garlic mayo and habanero mayo @ RM88. Worth a try as you get to sample different texture and taste of it and best of all I love their homemade style mustard sauce that goes along perferctl

Lastly that served up is their desert Apple Strudel , puffy crispy on the outside layer, not too sweet on the filling and eat along with ice cream is sinfull. Its just a great desert to end our superb meal.

A few years back where some areas in Penang had been crown with UNESCO’s World Heritage Cities Program, a few area started to grow with small little cafe’s and backapackers inn are mushrooming arond the area (Ryokan Chic Hostel is one of the latest addition to the area) to cater local and foreign tourist which I am hoping it will become a mini like Jonker street in the future, which Penang is lacking of. . .. .One of the latest discovery that was told by my friend to ask me to check it out was this little cafe smack at the junction of New Lane and Muntri street, bye the name of  ‘Behind 50’ . .

50 (1)

The shop is very obvious that it is painted in bright yellow colour walls which is only the single story unit. . .

50 (2)

50 (3)

The whole place is decorated with very rustic feeling, mostly with their own creative design to ensure that the cafe is as heritage as possible . .

50 (5)

with nice photo’s on the wall as deco . .

50 (6)

50 (7)

even use this old classic player to play music for its cafe ..

The cafe is certainly not big that can host only a few tables and mini bar seating area

50 (12)_resize

for a cafe like that to offer that range of food is quite good ..

50 (13)

 

50 (14)

Like the Ice-Lemon Tea which is very homemade style and under this hot weather, this is just what I need. . . Refreshing sip’s .. .

50 (15)

Mushroom soup wasnt on par with what I expected, as I find it too creamy and thick, a bit blend in taste too . .

50 (16)

I guess this would sure be a another great place to hang out with friends with their drinks are certainly up for grab, and filled with modernize pre-war style deco and the pricing of it is sure quite reasonable  . . . .For food wise I havent really try out on it, and no comment. . .as on the day I went, there were only one guy working which is ‘pau ka liau’ the whole scene  . . . So do have patient that they are lack of man power if you plan to visit here. .

Last round when I back to Penang for Chinese New Year, a few days before the festive season, woke up early and went to one of the busiest market at housing area which is the Ayer Itam Market. The market had been here from many decades ago that start to originate people that stay up in the hill brings down fresh vegetable to sell. From time to time the market had develop till as what it is today.

During festive season, this market is super packed with people to do their last minute shopping and it is advisable to park your car a bit far as very limited parking space available, with its narrow street just enough for 2 cars to passby.

Ti Kuih is one of the item that must buy during Chinese New Year. After a short stroll, we head to a nearby kopitiam for breakfast.

Kedai Kopi Kapin is one a famous kopitiam around the neighbourhood  . . . One of the hawker stalls to look after is the Hokkien Mee (Prawn Mee) which have people lining up for it.

As we order too many food for 3 of us then we just order only just Wan Tan to try out and the skin is very soft just that the sesame oil is abit strong.

 Penang Curry mee is always one of my favourite, cuz they have ‘Pig Blood’ and the chili is their own homemade style that makes every one is different in taste.  RM3

 ‘Pork Noodle’ as I always prefer my version in Koey Teow with Mee and this are cook instant. The soup taste is okay only, as I prefer my soup base to be a bit thick in flavour and a bit more of pork lard. RM3

This is the signature of the shop ‘Prawn Mee’ with some of us like to add a bit of ‘Loh’ which is the soup base for ‘Loh Mee’ that makes it a kind of Prawn Mee (ying yong style) which is most of the people are ordering. The loh is a bit thick and the prawn mee soup base is sweet, that ‘pai kuat’ taste is in there, shows that used alot of pork bone. RM 2.80

Then we walk to a street next to it and I found something more interesting which is this whole street sell Curry Mee with at least around 3-4 stalls selling the same thing. Ken told me that every stall have their own style of chili and soup base which makes them have their very own customer base.

 We sit to this stall and I was very curious, this ‘Chee Cheong Fun’ stall is very busy and non stop customer coming in and I decided to give it a try. The chee cheong fun is very good, very soft ‘fun’ that mix with thick texture of shirmp paste ‘Heh Kor’ and their very own homemade chili and fried onions. RM1.50 

 Then I stroll around among other stalls and this stall which is family operated and this 2 ah ma working so hard preparing in a very traditional by using charcoal, and people keep pouring in to buy. I also give it a try.

 As what I said, every stall is packed and have their own style, and this ah ma different is the squid and the sauce of it.

 Mild sweet soup base add with their own homemade chili with squid makes this bowl of curry mee quite unique in taste. A bit spicy yet sweet and I quite like the soup base. Bought a packet for my parents and they don like it. I guess it depends on individual taste. A good try . . . 

This is located along the entrace of a Chinese School.
