There are some restaurant are just unique in a way and why I mention that is this new restaurant that open to its door to public 2 months ago are serving fresh seafood to you and there are no plates and cutleries being provided. To enjoy the maximum feel of the food is you have to eat it with your hand. Shell Out Seafood restaurant is inspired from US itself as the owner just came back from the states and decided to do something similar for us to try it out.

shell seafood (1)

Shell Out Seafood is one of another restaurant tug inside this busy area where carpark can be a huge problem during day and night, there will be more luck for us. ūüôā

shell seafood (2)

Interior here are pretty, as they decorate in a way that we are dining in a mini fishing village that is indoor version, with wooden seating arrangement, fishing net as the wall and you can see crab, fishes on the net too.

shell seafood (3)

It also gives me the Taiwan feeling when I visited one of the cafe last round. They do provide alot of colourful pen for you to pen down anywhere in the shop to make it more creative design as part of their interior.

shell seafood (4)

Menu here is very straight forward as they serve most of the items with shell as mains. That’s how the name of the shop came about.

shell seafood (5)

Set lunch that they are offering are considering cheap. For all your seafood, you can pick the sauce that you would love to add in that comes with 4 types of flavour to add on, Cajun Sensation, Lemon Pepper, Butter Garlic, Spice Up – with 3 level and Shell Bang(which is all sauce mix into one)

shell seafood (6)

Before you eat, you will be given a neck napkins is to prevent the messy sauce flying over and landed on our shirt. We love their quote. Life is too Short to be Serious. Let’s EAT!

shell seafood (7)

Fried Sweet Potato makes a good starter as its being introduce to us,  selling at RM 8.90 per basket. The Fried Fish Basket serves deep fried baby pomfret that is crispy inside out @ RM 10.90 per basket.

shell seafood (8)

When you do not have a proper dining area as they pave the whole table with a huge chocolate sheet of dining paper, and sauce are given to us. See what happen to the table and food. Turn into art pieces.

Seafood serve here is very unique as I said they doesnt serve along with plates and the come in bag. It remind me of MacD shaker fries as this is seafood shaker. ūüėÄ

shell seafood (10)

Upon our order, it goes by gram. This is 250 g for 5 pax of us with¬†Scallop in 1/2 shell with Butter Garlic sensation (mild)¬†–¬†The scallops were well marinated, shaken in the bag and till butter garlic paste, are landed evenly. Scallop is so fresh and the flavour is little spicy with lemon sour end. Obvious that they have added lemon in but its fragrant enough to make your engine once start, its hard for you to stop.. Its too little and I guess 500g would be a perfect fit.

Price: RM17.90/250g | RM35.90/500g

shell seafood (13)

 Another 2 item that came about is Prawns and Clam

shell seafood (11)

¬†Clam (LALA) in Lemon Pepper sensation (mild) –¬†Fresh clams well marinated in lemon pepper paste, tasted really flavourful especially after squeezed in the lemon juices on it. It has mild peppery taste too.

Price: RM15.90/500g ; RM29.90/1kg

shell seafood (12)

Prawns here are so fresh that I love the texture of the meat, solid and light chewy, with the flavour added on Butter Garlic making it perfect in taste. Not too heavy flavoured, yet you can taste on the mild butter and garlic end. Do squeeze lemon into it, it brings the flavour out more prominent.

King Prawn in Butter Garlic sensation (mild) Р@ RM28.90/300g | RM39.90/500g | RM75.90/1kg

shell seafood (14)

This is what we really mean when no tables and cutlers are given. Making sure our finger licking good sensation..keke

shell seafood (15)

Next is interesting as it pack with  jumbo sausages, corn (are all additional added items) with Crawfish (YABBIES) in Cajun Sensation + Butter Garlic + Lemon Pepper sensation (OMG lvl 3) . 

shell seafood (16)

The taste of it is very unique is like when you cook something fail then you add on whatever ingredient you have then it turns out to be good. Flavour is blended pretty well with sour, spicy, sour and mild sweet is tasted and its a must try for all of you. Spicy OMG lvl 3 is not really spicy after all. We thought that we gonna have huge drop of sweat and tongue go numb and its no where near that.

Price: RM45.90/500g | RM78.90/1kg

shell seafood (17)

The most unique seafood that we have on table for that night is Japanese Snails in Cajun Sensation + Butter Garlic + Lemon Pepper sensation (mild) 

shell seafood (18)

I must say that the snails are huge and Caroline and Eric is like yew.. don want eat can ah . .

shell seafood (19)

Still need to try at least once. See its, really a huge snail, and the texture is pretty unique that the head part is pretty chewy, centerpart is pretty soft and the tail is really really soft till like taufufa already. Dip with more sauce and you wont feel it. Its like eating some unagi experience for me la.

shell seafood (20)

Crab in Cajun Sensation + Butter Garlic + Lemon Pepper sensation (mild) @ market price.

shell seafood (21)

This is how messy it had turn into by the end of the meal. If you are looking for some new dining experience, do come by this shop and its pretty interesting. Of course you can mix and play with the sauces which is available then my own preference, I would recommend Butter Garlic for Prawns/ Crabs follow by Cajun Sensation + Butter Garlic + Lemon Pepper sensation (OMG lvl 3) .

shell seafood (22)

I guess I did pay a visit to quite a number of restaurants in Straits Quay that some I do not even bother to blog about it. Till, we do not know what to eat and seeing the number of crowds in this shop Blue Reef Fish & Chips, we decided to put our steps in to give it a try.

Blue Reef (1)

 

Blue Reef (2)

A place which offer cozy dining place and nice concept too . .

Blue Reef (3)

Well, you can see anyone seating out here cuz the weather is killing us unless is at night.

Blue Reef (4)

Price list. .  most of the mains are offered fried.

Blue Reef (5)

Lets start eating ..

Blue Reef (6)

S Galore Mackerel Beer Batter @ RM 40

Blue Reef (7)

In our plates we have Spanish Mackerel

Blue Reef (8)

Squid, prawns  and lots of frieds.

Both of us eat till very ‘jelak’ cause too much fried stuff and we even make a take away for the remainings and she cant event finish too. I guess a plate like that can be shared by 3 people. We find it a bit too dry at the end.

Just a plain simple fish & chip place and for the price that we are paying in total of RM55 with 2 drinks I think we can hunt for better food in return around the area.

I have been to Mandarin Oriental- Mosaic  couple of times with my previous company hosting many events at this place. Never did I really notice this place or even when its under renovation. Mosaic had recently just open its door to public to this newly award wining restaurant inside Mandarin Oriental Hotel at Kuala Lumpur, with its posh design by a Japanese design company.

mosaic (1)

Mosiac with its elegant interior reflecting the Pernanakan Culture with its collaborative finishing, with customise flooring, intricate hanging pewter lights.

mosaic (3)

I just love the whole interior of the place, makes it a perfect posh place for dining.

mosaic (4)

mosaic (5)

mosaic (6)

mosaic (7)

Cushion section is comfortable that can fit easily 5 person like a club area that gives you a feel like privacy in this area.

mosaic (9)

I must say, they got a great selection of food in their buffet spread ranging from Italian, local, Japanese, Indian and a few more other choices, that lead by Chef de Cuisine Chef Raymond Abour Jeily.  mosaic (10)_resize

I always start my buffet with greens first and I am amaze with their wide selection of veggie, dressing, and types of oil for you to play and mix around on your salad. I am enjoying this section very much that makes me go 2 rounds before I hit the mains.

mosaic (11)

mosaic (12)_resize

Japanese section is all fresh, from oyster, to sushi and smoked salmon.

mosaic (13)

On their offering of North Indian Cuisine, are well cook with the curry are not too watery which is just thick enough to go along with Tandoori chicken, lamb, prawn with naan.

mosaic (14)

mosaic (15)

Another section that I like with available meat to choose from, lamb, and beef is my preferred choice .

mosaic (16)

mosaic (17)

For their grill section, again I still prefer their lamb and beef, another thing must not miss is the cheeze sausage.

 Asian soupy section.

mosaic (23)

 Comes to desert, this is one hugeeee macaroons

mosaic (24)

 Local Kuih

mosaic (25)

This desert section looks one of the coolest of all on how they display the desert in this drawer concept that makes everything look so good!

mosaic (26)

 

mosaic (8)

By the end of the night, I was full to the max as most of the food here are nice, and I would say that the buffet spread offering here in terms of quality are much better than a few places that I have tried so far. Price wise will be:

RM88++ per person (lunch)

RM108++ per person (dinner from Sunday to Thursday)

RM128++ per person (dinner on Friday & Saturday)

If you are asking me where can get nice buffet, certainly Mosaic will be in one of my recommended list~

I often hear my friend said about Viva mall another great place to hunt for food as they host many unique FnB in one side of the mall. Being my first time here since donkey years ago, that I still remember their old building is Ue3 or there is a Shark Disco right above the mall, and now being newly revamp to be called Viva Mall also known as a furniture mall. Nolita Cafe

I was there early that day and I came by and walked around, to my surprise its a huge mall..it took me bout half and hour to stroll whole mall . .

nolita (1)

After my little stroll, I head to this cafe call Nolita, I as ask the owner how do they come across the name and they told me that it actually refers to one of the neighborhood  in up north known as Little Italy at Manhattan, New Yok. So in short they came out with Nolita.

nolita (2)

As in this cafe, their mains is to offer customers quick meal or a nice place to hang out and one thing that must take note is their frozen yogurt is purely import from US.

nolita (3)

I love the whole ambiance as its very casual and relaxing with simen base counter that host their sandwich choices and yogurt toppings. . .

nolita (4)

They have wide selection of homemade cakes too  . . .

nolita (5)

nolita (6)

nolita (7)

Besides that, if you come in group to have a place to chill and they also have a few board games available ..

nolita (8)

nolita (9)

As I am a fan of yogurt and I manage to order and tried a few of them . .

1) Mango Mango @ RM 8.50 – fresh mango used mix with yogurt that I finish this cup within few minutes, its addictive . . . – Recommended

2) Sour Attack @ RM 8.50 – for girls or guys who love sour that makes your jaw a bit numb then you should try this . .

3) Monster Cookie Ice Blended @ RM 9 Рanother cup that I just keep sucking till it finish and its quite addictive too . . РRecommended

4) Yo Berry Yo @ RM 8.50 – something light and mild in sour, which is just nice to have a cup to chat with friends. . .

nolita (10)

If you want something light to go on then head for Caesar Salad @ RM 8

nolita (15)

By just adding RM 1, you get yourself a plate of salad with chicken on it, Grill Chicken Salad @ RM 9, the dressing is a bit more solid, towards a bit more sour but eat it along with their own season black pepper taste grill chicken that tone down the taste is just nice. .

nolita (11)

I like their Turkey Ham Sandwich @ RM 9.90  .. .

nolita (12)

as I they are quite generous in their hams’ with at least 4-5 slices of it are in the sandwich, and the sandwich is not dry, moist enough with the dressing and I like it ..

nolita (13)

As for their breakfast menu set, they have this . .

nolita (14)

Love how they cook their eggs with one gentle poke, the egg yolk ooze out as I prefer to slurrpp it before it was been poke, then it is very fragrant enough with the grained black pepper on top that I just don need pepper or soy sauce. Its just perfect to eat it like that!

nolita (16)

Creamy Mushroom Pasta @ RM 12

nolita (17)

I love their Chocolate Fudge, which is rich in chocolate flavor and its soft in the inside and a layer of chocolate crust circle around it. Best to pair it with latte or earl grey tea. .  @ RM 7

nolita (18)

Moist Carrot which is not too dry and rich in ingredient that I can cheew some of it, if the sweetness of icing on tone down abit it would just be perfect. @ RM 8

nolita (19)

Red Velvet @ RM 8

nolita (20)

Caffe Latte @ RM 7.50

nolita (21)

If you are a tea drinker I would suggest you try their tea, as the brand Dilmah is quite nice and its very fragrant.. I am not a Earl Grey Tea drinker as I do not know how to enjoy those kind of taste but I find this quite nice. . a mild yet very fragrant in taste n smell. @ RM 5

nolita (22)

nolita (23)

nolita (24)

Best of all, I like their Frozen Yogurt is import from US and its fat-free and great for the stomach as its full with probiotic content. I certainly prefer this over Tutti Frutti  . . . .

Yogurt Regular + 1 Topping @ 8

Yogurt Regulat + 2 Topping @ RM 12

Additional topping RM 1.50 each

Korean food, at times its hard to resist when comes to BBQ. To me, their signature is always BBQ yet when I went to Korea that time, it was not the case but in Malaysia, it looks like this are the kind of food that we could get, all under one roof. Honestly, if you ask me where is the nice Korean BBQ food so far on the island, definitely I am recommending this shop. Being one of the latest addition into the market it had gain its reputation quite fast and quite recognise by alot of my friends too.

As I always heard to get good Korean food was some where around Ampang but then my buddy Yeong brought me to this shop at Sri Hartamas and then now they had operated in Penang. My parents not being a big fan of grill stuff then I decided to bring and expose them to the little great environment they have there.

Their decoration is sure the same as the one they had in Hartamas.

Even the interior. The restaurant is quite pack and it is advise to do a reservation before you proceed, if not you will of course be seated at this lower ground. The very friendly boss is from Korea.

Ground floor setting is different from upstairs.

Upstairs they do have their own private room that would best for birthday celebration, client or family gathering.
This would be the place which we were seated. A very traditional Korean concept that makes you feel like you are part of the culture.
If you are a Saju lover, then you would not want to miss their selection, temptation to order.

For me, I am 100% sure that I do not know how to read Korean yet with the translation of English on the dish would not be perfect with picture illustration. It is easy for me to ask my parents what they want to eat and just point without actually have to explain to them what are the sauces or how it looks like.
Variety of meats are available and with different seasoning too.
Before the mains for serve, your table will be filled with all those small little appetizer to start of with, if you find any that you like, you can just refill any of the choices or get the whole set refill at your desk at no time.
You will be only left a very small place for you to ngam ngam put your own cutleries only.
Being a pork ribs lover in BBQ pit which is a must order item, ‘Hanbang Dweji Wang Galbi’ RM35
The pork ribs was well marinated and
The Pork Ribs was well marinated balace with some fats and meat, and after BBQ’ing for a while the meat is tender and its juicy. If you wrap it with lettuce and dip with the sesame sauce will add in the extra kick in it.
Being a fan of ‘SonDuBu JjiGae’ the taste is very appealing. Not that spicy as the colour looks like yet a bit of the sour taste accompany by a bowl of rice is a great companion. RM17
To me in BBQ, lamb is always a must for me which is ‘Yang Gogi’ marinated evenly and was cook perfectly by the helper. BBQ to its softness and the taste of the lamb is there with oozing of the after BBQ juice that had created by the lamb on the grill pan is just something we enjoy very much. RM35

The perfectly grill lamb.
Normal eater like my parents, they always prefer to have chicken, just in case they do not know how to enjoy the rest of the order. ‘Yang-nyum Dak-Gal-Bi’ RM27

After enjoying the first 2 great dish, then this had become something like so so. It would be better if they serve this first at least your taste bud can try something from okay to good.
At the end of the meal, you will be enjoying a comlimentary watermelon but we were enjoying our great meal there. My parents would sure returning to this restaurant again.
Here are my review on Hartamas Branch, KL.
