Some of us would have dinner outside almost everyday. Sometimes, we are just lost in hunting for what to eat on next meal. There is one outlet that newly operated in Sunway Pyramid new wing that sit directly across Starbucks is this famous restaurant chain from Singapore, Paradise Inn. Yes correct! I think you have the same thought as me when I was like huh? A restaurant not a hotel? Well, the word Inn definitely mislead many of us yet it is confirm that its not a hotel and it is actually a restaurant.

Paradise Inn (1)

The restaurant is decorated back into the olden days with contemporary look as you can see at the main entrance is like back to the 70’s style design high class restaurant at that time.

Paradise Inn (2)

Paradise Inn is one of a well know restaurant chain in Singapore that they provide good home cook style food at a very reasonable price.

Paradise Inn (3)

The food in the menu looks very tempting, everything in it looks good~

Paradise Inn (4)

One of their signature is their double boil soup that I can see nearly all tables have this classic pot sitting at their table.

Paradise Inn (5)_resize

I love the drinks that they are offering with a very light hint combination of the flavours and my fav is the one in the middle, which is one of the best seller (I suddenly forgot the name) then follow by Lavender Tea filled with some natural herbs and flowers like chrysanthemum too.

Paradise Inn (8)

Traditional double boil soup – Clam with pork ribsRM39.90/pot

Paradise Inn (9)

since every one order this, we were serve along to try it out along. This pot is enough to feed for 2-4 pax.

Paradise Inn (10)

Very clear in taste yet boil till the soup is aromatic, something that I have miss for quite some time and now I know where to hunt for nice double boil soup that is added into my list.

Paradise Inn (12)

Crisp-fried Crystal Prawns with Salted Egg Yolk one of the must order item. A prawn that had peel all the skins out and cook along that the whole prawn meat chew in your mouth blends with aromatic fried salted egg along just burst in flavour in your mouth. I always prefer to have prawns that already peel off its shell so can get the full taste of it. @ RM 29.90

Paradise Inn (13)

Crispy fried Fish With Preserved Bean Paste (Nam Yue) – Dory Fish fillet battered with preserved bean paste that fried till crisp on all side.

Paradise Inn (14)

Sliced Tea Smoke Duck is something for you to go for a start and chew, well marinated and finely cut slice is just enough to keep you going. @ RM 12.90

Paradise Inn (15)

Another one of my favourite which is Crisp-fried Crystal Prawns in Wasabi Mayo Sauce. Sauce is not too watery that is just at the right texture to coat along with the prawns and at the end of the taste a hint of spiciness that just burns your nose a bit.  @ RM 29.90

Paradise Inn (16)

Seafood Supreme Fried Rice is cook with ‘wok hei’ till its a bit dry and best part is you wont see a fried rice that cook along with Ebiko. Its unique. @ RM19.90

Paradise Inn (17)

This is one of my all time favourite, that I had this so often when I was in Melbourne and came back not many people can cook this well. Certainly Poached Chinese Spinach with Egg Trio and Minced Pork in Superior Stock is one of the recommended dish also that cook along with 3 types of eggs (Century egg, salted egg and normal egg) and mince meat. @ RM16

Paradise Inn (18)

The melt-in-your-mouth meat dishes, the Stewed Pork Belly Served with Lotus Bun

Paradise Inn (19)

It would be best to order along this Fluffy lotus bun as it is made fresh upon order.

Paradise Inn (20)

This is how you eat the stew pork with the bun, its one of the way and if you prefer to eat it without the bun also would be a perfect pair with your rice, because of its great sauce.

Paradise Inn (21)

I never like eggplant before because of its soft moist texture and after I have try good food when I was in Hong Kong i fall in love with this dish. Stewed Eggplant with Minced Pork and Salted Fish in Claypot that will pair along very well with your rice as the taste of it just absorbs. @ RM16

Paradise Inn (22)

One of a unique dish for the day is Coffee Pork Ribs, its a bit bitter at the end taste as that’s the result of coffee flavor. Very well prepared as the coffee taste do not over power their sauce that cook along. @ RM 19.90

Paradise Inn (23)

Crisp-fried Shrimp Paste Chicken crisp from inside out. @ RM18

Paradise Inn (24)

Braised Vermicelli with Pork Trotters is something that I used cook often when I am at oversea and now they have it here too. Its not too salty as it looks and the taste of pork trotters is in it without the vermicelli fried too dry. @ RM19.90

Paradise Inn (25)

Braised Tofu with Crystal Prawns @ RM25

Paradise Inn (26)_resize

At the end of the dinner, how can we not have desert when I scroll thru their desert page I am tempted to order all to try. So I guess my wish was granted and we have all it here. Corn and Barley, Mango Desert and Chilled Lemongrass Jelly with Lemonade 

Paradise Inn (27)_resize

Mango Pudding, Black Sesame Paste and Almond 

Paradise Inn (33)_resize

Double-boiled Hasma with Red Dates and Longan and Black Glutinous with tong yuen.

At the end of the meal, I was so full and satisfied, as rarely a Chinese restaurant that would serve quite a good range of food and taste is control best of all the price is very reasonable.. Definately I am looking foward to come back and dine here.

One of a recommended Restaurant!~

It has been long long time since I last went to Petaling Street for food and walk around the area. I think it was 3 years ago since I last visited the place.

Petaling Street or Chee Cheong Kai is know as Chinatown located in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It is infamous for pirated clothes and accessories along with bootleg DVDs and CDs. Petaling Street however does not exclusively offer pirated products. Haggling is a common sight here and the place is usually crowded with locals as well as tourists.

The area has dozens of restaurants and food stalls, serving local favourites such as Hokkien mee, ikan bakar (barbecued fish), asam laksa and curry noodles. Traders here are mainly Chinese but there are also Indian, Malay, and Bangladeshi traders. (source Wikipedia)

If you wish to stay around the area, there are many budget hotel available too.

If you  love bargaining then this is one of the place you must visit with many things to see for.

One of the food stalls that used to be very famous was this ‘Ikan Bakar’ that is located in front bank. The last time I dine here was about 6 years ago that it was so famous that we have to order first as usually need to wait for around 1 hour and we stroll around the place to see any nice thing to hunt. .

Now the order came less than 5 minutes and the place was not as pack as before.

BBQ under this hot stove pit.

chinatown (8)

I ordered the ‘Sting Ray, Lala, Squid and Prawns’ RM16 for small. The taste was not as good compare to last time, as it was very spicy (at least I need 4 glass of water to cool it off) and this round, the bottom was burn, and the whole spicy dish is filled a bit with that flavour and the sambal taste is not as nice as it used to be.

chinatown (9)

When I always come to this area, one of the drink that I will not miss and it is always pack with people is this ‘Air Mata Kucing’ RM1.80 per cup. It is sweet, refreshing and filled with longan at the base of it. A recommended drink if you do go there.

I could not help but to blog this wonderfull food that I have eaten yesterday as the double K’s brought the whole making gang to this place which they had been talking for quite sometime till ‘yesterday’ only bring us makan.

As I have always mark Kuchai Lama business park as one of my food hunting ground yet neither did I know that, there is another hidden restaurant next area to it. We reach around 12pm and it was already 95% occupied. Left 3 big tables and we occupied one and Karen told us that, usually the place would be very very pack after 12.30pm.

What we order was everything from the wall. The 5 dishes which is their signature dish.

Oder their ‘Longan Leong Sui’ lack of flavor and it would taste very nice if the longan aroma added strong her and also add in some sweetness.
If you are very sleepy in the morning or even lunch and loves something sour.. ‘Lime Juice with Sour Plum’ is something that will make your eyes wide open like a star blinking. Its very sour kam kat and sour plum taste had blended well with it. A perfect combination, recommended.

Another drink not to be miss, their ‘Kopi Peng’ as we ended up ordering 4 extra cups. We love it as it was strong in taste, yet the structure of it its like sticking on the glass, with a bit of burn coffee powder taste not too bitter but suit to our taste. Recommended too.

Our very first dish, ‘Mix Fried Pig Intestine’, the moment the waiter put down the dish, the rest were already taking their chopstick and ready to attack this dish and I have to stop them cuz I have not take a picture. I have to take it fast as I felt the pressure is there, if I do not take it fast the chopstick will ended poking up in my nose.

The moment I said I finish taking pictures, left half of the plate and it was gone within minutes. We love the texture of it, it was something chewy as all of us love it, the sauce is salty enough to eat along and the best part is the intestine is a bit smelly of its taste yet eat along with the fried pig oil and dried shrimps is just something you would not want to miss. We reorder again. Also gone within minutes. Highly recommended.

‘Guinness Stout Chicken Wingz’ I have always heard that cook a dish with Guinness and have not tried it till yesterday. Ohhhh, I can just tell you that I am loving it. By just smelling the dish I already cannot wait to eat it. For the very first bite of the mini drumstick I fell in love with the flavor. Something thick and rich in flavor and the soft chicken meat had just making us wanted to eat more. Andy was like, emm..this is good, emmm. . . this is just so good. Then Andy complain that, nah, see la…told you guys to order big 1.
I have tried quite anumber of places with its very own ‘X.O Claypot Fish Head Noodle’ but this have its taste of its own. There is a bit sour, yet a bit milk creamy, with a bit strong taste of ginger yet the soup is very clear is something that I do not really know how to describe but the taste is definitely unique compare to the one I have tasted before. Its good.
‘Claypot Lou Shi Fun’ caught my attention the most of how they serve it. With a very square wooden box look alike and the claypot was put in the middle of the box. Strong aroma when it was serve and of course it needed to be stir.
The after effect was, it taste not bad with you manage to eat abit of the crunchy burn lou shi and it’s a bit dry as I like it not too dry, with mince meat and the flavor of the burning taste is there. Not a bad dish after all. What is lacking was with an egg.
‘Braised Pork Belly with Man Tou’ I love the taste of the gravy but the meat provided consist of 10% meat and 90% fats. Particularly is like eating fats that makes me geli but then I remember that eating along with the man tou gives it the oomph of it, and here is my very own version of wrapping.

Add on the sauce and wrap and eat along, yet still I cannot eating with the fats oozing out from the bun just makes me geli. If the fats and the meats we given equally, it would be nice to much with the soft warm man tou.

We really did enjoy the meal here and looking forward to revisit. A place I am recommending. The sad thing is they do not open on weekend as they are very busy for catering. Well, that just leaves us an option of weekdays then. Total bills come to RM118 for 7 person which I think the price is okay with the quality of the food but some of them do not like the lou shi fun. It is advisable to go to this place early to avoid dissapointment.

I used hate Murni when I was in the college days because the taukeh speak only malay but cannot denied that the business had been whooping good and for the 1st time in my life that a chinese can open a mamak stall with such a good daily business and crowds. The shocking 1 was he conquer the whole street. Never seen in PG before. So recently been constantly me and my friends hang out area.
This is in my hot list favourite which is the ‘Spaghetti Carbonara. With the pricing of RM8 per plate, I am well satisfied with the serving comes in lost of sausages, chicken meat and of course lots of sauce and must tell them you want it hot. If not they will just take the ready made on the side area and pass it to you. That the QC would not be there and it wont be as nice as it is.
2nd in my Fav hotlist also the Roti Hawaii’. With the price of RM5 and the ingredient which they are not kedekut with, it is satisfying, filled with whole piece of chicken burger piece, small chicken cubes and pineapple. But today one was quite cold. So it taste so so only, usually it had one also not enough that type.

This drink I would never miss. Every time that I go, this is the only drink that I order and also in Jumbo size. It is the ‘Mango Special’. RM5 for this also. Filled with nata de coco, watermelon, longan and lychee. not only 1 or 2 pieces, it is many piece to stuff your mouth with.

‘Honey Dew Special’ will be next in the list as filled with the same thing but more milky abit thats what I feel. Compare to Mango, still feel mango taste nicer. RM5 for this.

Of course with the reasonable price and the serving is big, we do not mind coming back.
