Who is a big fan of Bagel? I am one of them. It is hard to find one nice one in KL. My previous liking was Coffee Bean Breakfast Set. Their Bagel is pretty spot on. Now we have Park’s Bagels that runs by a Korean. That makes him The only Korean run Bagel cafe. first of its kind that currently is operating in Tropicana Gardens Mall in Kota Damansara.

cream cheese

If any of you have been to Korea and did cafe hopping there, I am sure you gonna love this place. This is one of the best Bagel I come across at the moment. (of course personal liking and preference)

Love the interior too. Simple white titles and with some sketches on the windows.

latte

The combination is mind blowing. It comes with 10 different types of bagel. Should be choices of the day:

  1. PLain
  2. Sesame
  3. Onions
  4. Garlic
  5. Blueberry
  6. Cranberry
  7. Poppy Seed
  8. Whole Meal

With the selections up there, it is kinda like Subway Sandwich.

OH NO! I forgot take picture of the creme cheese selections. Easily got 12 flavours available. Imagine that the combination you going to have. For me just go for their Classic + Cream Cheese [ Da BEST ]

8 types of bagels + 12 diff types of cream cheese!!!!!!

Parks Bagels (5)

I believe the guy wearing blue t-shirt is the owner as he speaks Korean. Besides bagel, you can choose some pastries on the bench. Scones and some other interesting items if it catches your attention.

I would always go for their Classic. My order for today are:

  1. Set B @ RM 19 : comes with  1x bagel, 1 x cream cheese & 1 x americano. (that’s how the Korean pair their food)
  2. Nutella Banana @ RM 18

Parks Bagels (8)

Parks Bagels (9)

What caught my eye on the bench is this Garlic bread with Cream Cheese. I last had it when I was in Korea. @ RM 11

Parks Bagels (10)

Bread is abit soft but the garlic bread and butter is pretty spot on! Cream cheese is right in the middle with a dot of pipping. I believe if oven toast or slightly microwave, it is gonna be awesome!

Parks Bagels (11)

My set of the Day : Set B + Nutella Banana.

Remark: DO not look down on Bagel as one piece like that is enough to stuff you. IT is a pretty solid kind of bread. The best is I love the texture. My kind preference of texture is like a bit hard on the outside, yet inside the texture have to be chewy like hard bubble gum but it is soft.

Among the 2 I still love classic! Classic is da best!

Definitely one of the best Bagel that I can find in KL. A Korea kind of cafe and just go for their CLASSIC + CREAM CHEESE. That’s All!!

I have been here like at least once a week for 十面埋伏 Ten Noodle Restaurant. Regard them as one of the best Pork noodle in Kota Damansara.

Ten Noodle (1)

They are also consider as the new kid on the block. As in a short span, they have gain their popularity among the working crowd in this area.

Ten Noodle (2)

The best time to dine here is to avoid crazy lunch hour of 12.30pm – 2pm. But then the queue is quite fast as it will be less than 10 minuntes waiting time.

While you are waiting, you can actually browse through their menu and key in your order on the paper. Upon right before your table seating, then pass it to them to place order.

 

Ten Noodle (3)

Ten Noodle (4)

One of my favourite is to eat along with dry maggie mee or Koey teow and mee mix.

Ten Noodle (5)

 

Ten Noodle (7)

This is the soup version. For a bowl of Pork noodle at RM 7.50, we cant complain as it is pot with lots of ingredients in it. Quite generous.

Ten Noodle (9)

Soup base is quite strong and the colour of soup says it all. Sweet and flavourful.

Ten Noodle (10)

One of my favourite pork noodle place in Kota Damansara. If you would want a slight tweak of pork noodle cooking method , then check out ah Loy Pork Noodle in Kota Damansara also.

Chan Sin Kee Pontian Noodle is one of a new eatery that me and my colleague try it out. Read up that current owner is the third generation whom are holding the helm for this brand. They still make their own noodles and you have a choice of wantan mee and mee pok when ordering.

chan sin kee (1)

The unique thing about this shop is that their Wan tan mee serve with chili sauce in it. That makes me quite curious about the taste too.

chan sin kee (2)

 

chan sin kee (3)

What Pontian is famous for is also their Pineapple Juice @ RM 6.80 which is quite pricey and the flavour is not really what I like. Can skip it though.

chan sin kee (4)

as you can see there is a L shape long table with Bamboo, that is where the noodle are made fresh.

chan sin kee (5)

We tried out their classic signature which is the Black Chili Wantan Mee @ RM7.90 small. That serve along with their homemade chili and give you a slight unique twist. Not your typical wan tan mee flavour that you could execpt however it is not too bad. Give you  hint of mild spicy and sourness. Not too bad though. Worth to give it a try.

One of a new eatery that pop out around my office area which is an industrial zone is slowly filling up with malay eateries. Recent discovery is Restoran Warung Kaka at Kota Damansara and since them become quite regular too.

Warung Kaka (1)

A simple cozy ambiance and cooking method is from the owners wife recipe.

Warung Kaka (2)

Warung Kaka (3)

Warung Kaka menu is quite small as they only serve 5 items, which specialize in more of their curries.

Warung Kaka (4)

Each of the dish that you order will be given some pineapple acar and their homemade special sambal which is a must take. A bomb!

Warung Kaka (5)

Warung Kaka (6)

Warung Kaka (7)

Serve in bungkus format where my usual is their Fried Chicken with rice @ RM 6.50, my colleague love their sotong base.

Warung Kaka (8)

I usually request to have their curry in my rice in banjir format. (drench with curry gravy )

Warung Kaka (9)

Nasi Kaka Ayam Goreng @ RM 6.50

Warung Kaka (10)

Nasi Kaka Special @ RM 9.50. This is my usual order and the only thing different is the rice base. It is more like nasi Briyani that cook with fragrant rice. and usually wil take with their ayam masak merah to add on the spices and gravy on top of the rice to make it extra fragrant.

Their homemade chilli, is the killer. Sweet and sour with a kick of spiciness at the end, do lift the flavour of it.

Warung Kaka (11)

The owner is damm cool and friendly too. Uses alot of social media to promote his place.

Never know that nearby my office have such shop. Was recently introduce by my another friend that I should visit this Pork noodle place at Kota Damansara nearby my office. According to my friend, Ah Loy Sabah Pork Noodle is slightly different compare to any other pork noodle shop because it is Sabah version.

[update: 1/11/2018: They have move to new location at Kota Damansara CIMB – The Strand]

Ah Loy Pork Noodle (3)

Apparently this shop have been operating in this area for quite a while and it is famous among all the working crowd. At time, if you come on the wrong timing, you could expect to wait at least 30-45 minutes.

Ah Loy Pork Noodle (1)

This is my 4th visit here and I usually come before 12.30pm or after 2pm to avoid the crazy crowd.

Ah Loy Pork Noodle (2)

Variety of noodle for you to pick from and their hakka noodle is the one to go after which is their signature noodle.

Ah Loy Pork Noodle (4)

Ah Loy Pork Noodle (5)

Usually my order is Koey Teow noodle till dicover this noodle and tried it. love the slight chewy texture and the dark soy sauce give it a little sweetness and pork lard to give the awesome flavour into it. Simple delicious meal.

Ah Loy Pork Noodle (7)

On the soup base, pork is cook to perfection where it is not overcook that makes it hard, they cook it just right. Also in the soup they added some salted veggie that gives you a little punch of sourness that make it quite interesting flavour pork soup noodle profile. Look at the colour of the soup and you can judge by it they are cooking it for long hours to get such no clarify.

Ah Loy Pork Noodle (8)

A simple meal for my lunch yet satisfying. Different compare to others as they have salted veggie in soup. Price per bowl ranges from RM 8 – RM 15 depending what you add on. Also they do have other side dish.

Recommended to order their dry version. As I always had my pork noodle in soupy version and find out that Ah Loy Sabah Pork Noodle best to have it in dry . Well, all my Sabah friends, need you guys to come try and let me know the authenticity of it.

Tried out their Eggcited Benedict. Eggs are done to perfection with thick toast as the base and hollandaise sauce to pair along.

ziffy (7)

ziffy (8)

If you are in this cafe, this is a must order item. Salted Egg Heaven burger, as the sauce is just nice, thick enough yet not too overpowering. A thick slab of fried chicken that sits in between fluffy bun. @ RM 20. 

ziffy (9)

I SEE Food  @RM 31, their classic Seafood Aglio alio. generous with ingredients.

ziffy (10)

ziffy (14)

French Love @ RM 20 – French toast serve with honey, strawberries, dried coconut, toasted almond flakes, chocolate crumble and chocolate sauce. (+ RM 3 for vanilla ice cream) toast is not bad too as they use brioche bread. Maybe if they could replace the longan with other fruit base to make it more interesting.

If personally find that their coffee suit to my liking as it is not too acidic yet coffee flavour is mild enough with some fruity note.
