Any one of you fancy China food? I do, as I have dine before many good authentic China food before and definitely not in Malaysia. One of my best friend introduce me her all time favourite sze chuan food that located in Jalan Alor (click here). Then recently, I am being introduce to another type of China food which hail all the way from North China. Dong Bei is actually a province in North China and the owners have migrated to Malaysia, hence that is how the Dong Bei Restaurant is name after. The family came to Malaysia as early as 1992 and also known as one of the pioneer of authentic China food back in those early days. As now the restaurant is located behind Times Square, can you see that area is like a mini China eatery street.

Dong Bei (1)

In China, there are many province and taste definitely different for any other town that they have, it is the same as Malaysia too, as the East coast and WEst cost taste bud are very much different. So what is the difference for Dong Bei Food. The food have more sourish end and not that spicy. ( as the owner have localize it)

Dong Bei (2)

Its a simple restaurant and indoor seating is a unique dining experience as they have design in a way to give a little ambiance of what Dong Bei dining feels like.

 this is the first time I came across utensils are properly wrap to kept the cleanliness of it.

Dong Bei (5)

Beancurd Dong Bei Style (风味干豆腐丝)RM18. Import all the way from China as its hard to find this kind of texture that originate the authenticity of it. Its a cold platter with chewy texture and hint of garlic and spicy chili oil taste. Pretty good to start off with.

Dong Bei (13)

Crisp Potato (香辣土豆片) @ RM18 for a start would be another good option.

Dong Bei (7)

This is another unique dish which is Dong bei Da La Pi sheet with Cucumber Salad (东北大拉皮)RM14. AT first glance I thought it was pig skin that finely cut then its not. Sprinkle with some garlic and eat it sheet by sheet, that taste a bit like jelly fish and pig skin texture cross over. 😀

Dong Bei (6)

Sauerkraut, stir-fried with glass noodles (酸菜粉) @ RM18

Dong Bei (8)

Stewed Eggplant, Bean, Potato and Meat Dong Bei style (东北大乱炖) @ RM25. This is rather simple as I would rate this North China Curry, thick n creamier gravy and its a little sweet in taste at the end. Well fried and I quite like it. Goes well with my rice.

Dong Bei (9)

Hot & Spicy Seafood (麻辣香锅)RM28

Amount so many dishes, this would turn out one of the most spicies compare to the rest, the spiciness is not to the extend to make our mouth numb, as I find its well balance, even though cook with lots of dry chili, do not let the look to scare you off. I love how they cook along with lotus root make it crisp on the bite and prawns is fresh.

Dong Bei (10)

Boiled Fish with Sour Cabbage and Spicy Soup (酸菜鱼) RM32

Dong Bei (14)

This turns out to be one of the favourite among my table, as strong sourish taste with veggie and fresh fish. Those who like mild spicy, this would be a good option.

Dong Bei (11)

“Gardens”Prawn, Lotus Root, Potato and Vegetables (田园小炒) RM28

Dong Bei (12)

I rate this is super star for the night as Sweet & Sour Pork ( 锅包肉 ) was fried to perfection and its so cripsy outside and the pork inside its not overcook. Taste with a bit of sour vinegar taste with soy sauce that turn it a good [email protected] RM18 – recommended

Dong Bei (15)

Lastly, we did not order the Dumplings (10 pcs) (饺子) but looking at so many tables order dish its like a must have thing and ended up we order 2 portion. One is steam @ RM10 and another one is [email protected] RM8

Great starter to go along and if mix with a bit of chili oil with ginger and vinegar, I just like mine to be in that way. 😉

One of the bar that my friend like to hang out is at ZETA bar, just for one simple reason that the crowd in here is more mature. I would say the crowd most of them falls more towards bisnessman, CEO, tai tai, datin, that kind of crowd. . .

Zetabar (1)

This bar is located right inside KL Hilton on the 2nd floor if I am not mistaken.

Zetabar (2)

Usually its pack with people during weekend and even ladies night.

Zetabar (3)

One of the VIP place that my friend invited us too . .

Zetabar (4)

Also on that night, they reveal their new live band on stage that consist performer from a few continents to assemble this band.

Zetabar (5)

No doubt that this is by far one of the good live band that I have come across and I guess they going to be here for another 3 more months before they switch again?

Time really flies, and never thought its mid of June already and reminds us about Jonathan’s Birthday. When he remind us about his birthday, it feels like just celebrated with him few months ago and actually not it was a year ago. Ishin Japanese Dining.

We delay one day to celebrate with him to make it lunch on Friday, and places that ended up voting by most of them is to ala carte menu of Japanese food at Old Klang Road, anyway, who could resist japanese food?

Ishin

This restaurant is located at the side of Old Klang Road, if you did not notice it, it would be just a plain bungalow as it is conversion of bungalow to restaurant.

Once you walk into the restaurant, we were greeted by attentive staff and seat us to our table. The restaurant consist of two level that decorated with contemporary Japanese dining placed along dark chocolate wooden table and chairs.

Ishin (4)

If you feel you would like to stare at the chef cutting and preparing sushi, then you can be seated at the Sushi Bar.

Ishin (5)

Modern Tatami style dining is available on second floor and if you are a smoker, you can choose to be seated outside on the balcony.

Once we were seated, we were given one appetizer.

Fish Head Bee Hoon seems like a hit at the moment as this would be the 2nd discovering of the restaurant but I have return to this kafe a few times already.

I love their version of ‘Fish Head Noodle’ as I felt that this shop had stronger taste that I quite prefer compare to other shops. A strong rice wine taste which doesn’t over power the Xo sauce and the milk taste yet sweet taste of the soup that add in the fried fish head is just nice~ RM7.50

As their ‘Fried Hor Fun’ looks good but taste average. It’s a bit starchy that makes the sauce quite thick and cannot really taste the ingredient that fried along with it. RM8.90

‘Claypot Noodle’ is quite pale in taste but added in some soy sauce and some chili given, it tasted not bad. RM7.90

With their pricing and the quality and I like their version of Fish Head but parking space could be a pain in the ass. Can double park around the shop.

Revisit Sushi Zenmai again. Was with my friend that she thought of wanted to go on diet, then I mention Japanese food as good for girls on diet, less oil. Lol~ So went there and the best part was did not need to Que up as I was there around 3.30pm on weekdays..Lol~
This is what my friend ordered Kani Avocado Salad’. To me when I saw it I was like ‘yeeewwwww avocado, hate it!!! so soft as in it can just imagine my friend vomiting the things out from their mouth~ yucks!!!’ but do not underestimate this, with the special don know what dressing down on the salad, you will just race to the finish as 1 bowl of dressing not enough, asked for another 1. RM 12.80 for the lovely salad
Me on my diet too, so decided to order ‘Curry Udon Chicken’. Wow, this is the first time I had a nice curry chicken udon, the feeling is just like what I ate back in those days when I was in melb at one of the lunch box restaurant at Swanston Street nearby RMIT. The gravy is nice, a bit thick, sweet and curry powder taste. Some ppl might not like it but to mee its very nice. RM10.80 for this udon.
This 2 are my favourite’s which is ‘Salmon Mentai and Aburi Hotate. Once you try you will fall in love with it. RM 6 each.
Overall, still recommended this restaurant as the service is prompt and good food but I still think that the 1 in One-U taste better.
