jalan mesui


No no, I am not in Korea. Super Boring Club is one of the latest addition into this happening row at Jalan Mesui. It offers Korean Japanese fusion food. Happy to see that this row are growing to a standard of a nice neighborhood bar and eatery like those in Bangkok or Korea. They are sited just right next to the famous No Black Tie bar.

On the outlook itself, it felt that you are in Korea at one of the small alley eatery.

Love the ID of this place as it is modern hip chic, with jade titles and neon lighthing on the wall do add in the ambiance.

menu is pretty simple and direct. But I am quite suprise on the pricing of food in this outlet. Decently price and affordable, also the cocktails only start from RM 26.

Hello my friend, time to take your chopstick and dig in.

Their cocktail is indeed very impressive and creative. I had off the menu cocktail as the mixologist just mix one of his creative mix. Top with grill garlic that give you a slight charred taste with lychee.

Was thought on how to drink this.
1. Put the garlic and lychee stick into the drink
2. Smell first then sip

outcome: a very confusing drink to your brain as you smell garlic but you dont taste garlic. If you are adventurous, this is indeed a refreshing cocktail that you should give it a try. At the end, I bite off the garlic with lychee and a sip of it, it gives you a nice aroma that did not overpower each other.

These 2 are their signature cocktails:

  1. Sake Asamboi @ RM 26 – love the mixture of this cocktails as it give you a nice balance layer of asamboi that give you the sour punch it needed yet end with a hint of sake aroma which is good to balance off.
  2. Sake Yuzu @ RM 26 – in our hot weather, this is the best drink to down it. If it were price at RM 16, I will down a few more glass. Simply refreshing, and love the acidity from yuzu and spice from ginger.

Starting off with Miso Grilled Egg Plant @ RM 16.80 – deep fried egg plant with special home made miso. This is one of the best made eggplant dish that I have come across. A cleverly done dish that cut into cubes, charred nicely with hint of burnt taste. Nicely presented in a basket yet the magic is the miso glazed. It is so thick and caramelize that taste like honey but it is made from miso. The best part of this dish is the whole basket skin of egg plant.

Super Boring (14)

A seasonal dish to recommend too, which is off the menu. Beef tongue with this seasonal ice vegetable from Japan. Tongue marinate and cook to perfection. Nice balance of bbq and special sauce yet the tongue grill to perfection. Soft and juicy yet not too chewy. A perfect bite is with icy vegetable, tongue and egg. Give you a nice mouthful balance from crispy, soft, sour, spicy, chewy. Good!

Some of you see me preparing Watermelon salad through my insta stories. This is whole new level. Yummy Spicy Baby Octopus @ RM 16.80. Baby Octopus with mushrooms, watermelon,cld spicy lime sauce. A dish that give you explosion of flavors. You can taste the freshness of baby octopus yet soft. Crunch it with a piece of watermelon that gives you the sweetness of juice that add another layer to cover up the taste octopus, yet the dressing in it give you a nice mild layer of sourish taste and heat that is need.

I take this dish to pair with the Garlic Cocktail. Indeed an interesting combination.

Super Boring (17)

Order grilled Platter combo 2 @ RM 78Lamb char siew, Chicken, squid, wagyu striploin . In this dish, I am quite surpise with the house marination of chicken. It is so tender, juicy and fragrant. Eat with a slice of vegetable with a slice of their seasoning garlic and slide into your mouth. Bam!

Another interesting dish is the Lamb Char siew, season with house special char siew sauce, is just unique.

Awesome beef tataki  @ RM 28.80.  Love how the beef is being taken care off. Shining from the oil and a nice decent cut that give you a good chew in your mouth. Grill to perfection that it is slightly above medium rare. The fried garlic slices give you the crips and soft veggie to balance it off. Eat it 4 ingredient at one go.

Super Boring (20)

Smoked duck @ RM 20. Just look at the look of the quality of smoke duck. A nice layer of skin fat and the meat looks good. It is quite thick too.

was told by the crew that the best way to eat this is just put on the pit for about 1 n half minute each side then top with the house special sauce on top. Put on your plate to cool it down then eat the whole piece at one go. Give you a good mouthful of bite that burst with flavours.

It is always too tempted for me when I see in the menu got Shoyu Ramen. I am a big fan of shoyu soup base Ramen. The soup is indeed very interesting. Pack with flavour yet it is vegetable base soup. It does give you a hint of flavour that we are missing out when we were as a kid.

Super Boring (23)

this is not a sauce jar. Presented in a way that it looks like one. End my night with another glass of cocktail. This would be my favourite as it is stronger. Suntory Lover @ RM 32.

I can taste a few layers of flavours at one sip. Great mixologist mix.

At the end of the night, wanted to try something sweet. Ordered Yuzu Sorbet @ RM 10 & Cornflakes @ RM 10. Cornflakes is indeed very interesting. Do try it out.

Find that their Happy Hour is quite worth it.

Finally, a eatery that give you a nice food journey of flavours. There is flair in their marination or cooking. Simple yet flavorful. Loving it. Will certainly come back again. If you put it Korean fusion or Japanese Fusion still the same. One of the best place for Korean Japanese fusion restaurant in KL. Certainly will be one of my recommended place.

Alright, I do not know how did the time flies and now is already mid April and lets rewind back to early this year. Isabel Restaurant and Bar is one of a recommendation from Faridah that sits just right next to Feeka or just a stone throw from Changkat Bukit Bintang that I should visit this place and here we are. Celebrating both our birthday here over dinner.

Isabel (1)

This place is rather new as they operated since November 2017 when we visited the place. Love the ambiance of it as they turn the classic place into modern touch.

What I read from other reviews, it seems that this place is also well known for their cocktails. I have no idea. Maybe you guys can try it out and let me know.

Isabel (4)

Just look at the marble table and also the cutleries. Some of my friends would go “yaya: on this.

Isabel (5)

Weekend over here is kinda packed up especially on the bar area. A place which is really chill to have nice conversation.

Menu is not huge but they are more like fusion food menu, with combination of local, thai and western cuisine in “Dai Chow” format.

Isabel (13)

As I was hungry while waiting for the “kakak’s” to arrive, I started myself with Bao. Soft fluffy bun top with a long slice of beef. Not too bad.


Isabel (14)

We always have wine for our gathering and this bottle of house wine turns out to be good. Frutti young wine, soft finishing at your palate yet not too dry and great to pair with their food too. We ended up order another bottle.

Isabel (15)

Here come one of the recommendation from the lady owner I believe. Steam mini octopus which is special of the day. Did not over cook it, yet it is very fresh. With some lime juice top on it and it is just perfect to pair with their house wine.


Isabel (17)

Lamb Massamam – Southern thai New Zealand lamb stew with peanuts, cardamom, staranis & Cinnamon @ RM 54. Price maybe on a very steep side but rest asure that you will be blast with the quality of it. creamy enough to my liking, very fragrant with spices that did not over power your palate and lamb is cook to perfection that near to melt in your mouth texture. Put the gravy onto the fried rice, and wine. Well, shall leave it to you to describe then.

Isabel (18)

Egg fried rice @ RM 12. The most simplest dish of all yet it is the most perfected cooking style of all. Very similiar to the one I had in Hong Kong that filled with “wok hei”, rice is fragrant and the egg taste is just so prominent. We ended up order 3 bowls for this as it is hard to find such quality cooking. Simple and so good.

Isabel (19)

This was also another recommendation from the lady boss. Prawn Sambal tumis @ RM 48. Cleverly play with local ingredient. Freshness of it is there. Add some lime drops to enhance the taste.

Isabel (20)

Lala @ RM 28 is normally what we have on most of the restaurant. you guys should give it a try for my malay and indian friends. As good as a “chinese dai chow” place

Isabel (21)

Grill chicken @ RM 45 is well marinated with chef special sauce. Add on lime and dip with the sauce given, you would just want this plate by yourself. “Nando’s atas version.”

Isabel (22)

As for meal closure, we tried their cakes. Varlhona Chocolate cake with butter cream @ RM 17. You will love it, and good to pair with coffee. Rich in chocolate taste, yet cake is not too dense and butter cream give you the light flavour that is needed to balance up.

Isabel (23)

Mini Pavlova of Blueberries and Strawberries @ RM 20.

isabel 25 (2)

There we are. 2 of us with Farida as Jan baby and me as Feb baby. Of course thanks to Eunice and Leon for the dinner eh~

isabel 25 (1)

overall, the food here is pretty impressive as for a Fusion restaurant. A great place for celebration too and have become one of my recommended place if you are willing to dig deeper into your pocket. Per pax here would easily from RM 60 onwards. However I am not too sure did the taste change as we come on mid Jan.
