I was out for Sunday lunch to Low Yatt that Simon the founder of Blup Blup and we were shower for token of appreciation by being a member of Blup Blup, they had organize lunch at EspressSOUP, and treat all the members a meal which is more like a mini get together.

Most of us when we head to dine in any restaurant, soup comes in a set or we would order the soup separately if we find that the soup we want is not in the list, but one of the owner had come out with this idea that why not soup for everyone? By creating idea to life, this is how EspresSOUP been set up, and that made them the first Soup Kiosk in Malaysia.

This is one of their signature bread that they are using this farmer bread which is made of wheat and rye flour that is oil, sugar and preservative free. In the Kiost, there are a few choices of soup to choose from and other food like sandwich and spaghetti.

Ways to eat the bread when the soup is pour upon, and the ingredient guide that making the bread.

‘Clam Chowder’ which is creamy and can taste the clam in pieces, dipping it with bread its good.

blup (6)

‘Mushroom Soup’

blup (7)

‘Pumpkin Soup’ that I had made the wrong choice on the bread, which me and my friend think that, if put mushroom soup in would taste much better. The bread is a bit hard is to hold on the soup in there.

Then you cut it ooze out from the bread its like a burst dam, then you cut the bread into pieces and dip along to eat.

Recently had rained alot, and my friends suggested us to go get something warm and nice. One of them is a big fan of pork lover and whenever he travels back to Malaysia, the first thing that came into his mind is…woiii, I need pork man.. I just need it. Then we headed to this makan this Zheng Jia Restaurant at Puchong is one of their favourite shop.

Bak Kut Teh (2)

This is one of the Bak Kut Teh shop that serve with ‘Yam Rice’ which is perfect to eat along with bak kut teh. The yam rice is not too dry in rice yet a few chunks of yam pieces in the rice. Quite flavourful with small dry shrimps.

Bak Kut Teh

The normal vegetable, nothing to shout about.

Bak Kut Teh (4)

I love my big pot of ‘Bak Kut Teh’ filled with all the pig spare parts, with intestine, liver, tail, pork piece, button mushroom and otheres. It looks like clear soup with light colour but it was cook well and taste good.

Bak Kut Teh (3)

Another thing which we would not miss is the ‘Dry Bak Kut Teh’ which they order purely on Roast Pork. It was cook in the claypot till the meat was soft and the dry taste had soak onto the meat and I just cant stop eating this.

Food of course meant to be enjoy but the catch is, I drink alot of water after an hour later. The sign of alot MSG added in.

When you ask any one out there, where is the best place to get Bak Kut Teh, most of the people would always say….go Klang lah…there got nice one. I have heard alot about Klang on its famous signature dish, but when always thinking of driving all the way there, I will think twice on it. Restaurant Teluk Pulai, First, I do not know the way, second I am just lazy when think of drivvvinngggg all the way there.

Never have I know that manage to try out a shop around that area that I would called it Bak Kut Teh Zone which mean not this shop, there are a few other shops too. This shop was recommended by my friends. So headed here to makan which is the second round. (moster ler them, including me as since drive all the way so far don care la..for second round)

Even though that there are parking space available but I have to park quite far to get to this shop with the amount of people flocking in yet it was quite late already.
Of course ‘Bak Kut Teh’ would be the signature dish in shop which sell no other things than this. When we were there, as I said we were quite late and alot of things in the pot is the same, I love all those piggy spare parts had left like 2-3 choices which is quite a turn off for me but never careless as the moment now, the most important now is the soup base.

I have always love Bak Kut Teh soup base have those strong a bit of herbal taste and the soup when you drink like will paint a layer on your tongue but this shop does not have the feel. Just a normal one.

None the less, I just love this ‘Chicken Feet’ as it was boil till the soup base soak into the feet and it was quite nice, soft on the skin.

I would say this would not be the best shop, as I remember I have ate once during when I was studying in college that serve bowl by bowl instead of a big pot and that was one of the best but I do not know where is it that was brought by my friends dad.

It was already quite late, and my friend came find met yet I was quite full that time. Then I kena drag out and eat around 12.30 am, then she brought me to this area to makan which is I am kinda surprise that, I always thought of the porridge always open on the opposite but never knew that, there is actually a Chicken Rice Shop, Restaurant Fei Por opened till quite late.

Now, manage to find a place to makan after drinking session.

RM22 (16)

RM22

Then I requested to seat in front cuz can see how the way he potong the chicken and a bright spot too for easy for picture taking.

RM22 (7)

The chili and garlic I find it quite nice.

RM22 (4)

Start off with white porridege which is a bit tateless but if you add on with garlic sesame oil it would be perfect as it is a bit in taste has the same structure as porridge.

RM22 (8)

Then comes the ‘Char Siew’ with the oily shinning gravy been shower upon, it surely ooks very good. A type which i prefer 7-% meats and 30% fats just that if the edge of the crust not that burn, it would taste good.

RM22 (11)

It looks juicy and tender but there is nothing to boast about except the crust of it.

RM22 (15)

I am not a big fan of chicken lover but my friend she mention she want to eat it, so order loh as for me, I can take only one piece cuz I find it a bit geli. The chicken meat is a bit overcook which make it a bit solid yet the soy sauce gravy pour to enhance the taste..

Total that we paid was around RM22 which I find it quite reasonable.. The best part is you went during you were sober or a bit drunk, this place is totally not recommended as the will take a big blade potong you kau kauz.!!!

My first try on Vietnamese food was during my college time where there is one quite famous Vietnamese restaurant at Taipan, USJ which is called Vietnam Kitchen. Went to this restaurant quite frequent and I love their soursop drink a lot! Wondering is the restaurant still there and is the quality still the same? Till my very last exposure which I had a satisfying meal was at Pho Hoa months back.

Then recently got a chance to try out their food again, but this round I try out their food at the very wrong time which during 9th God festival which I am on vegetarian.Then my friends they request the kitchen to do vegetarian for me. I plan to go sit and migle around mana tau kena makan.

Drinks to start of with ‘Vietnamese Dripping Coffee’ and if you are looking forward to be caffeinated then this is a good drink to go after. RM5.95

Something thick and creamy yet not that sweet ‘Blended Fresh Avocado Juice’ not my type of drink but still alright. RM7.95

I cannot remember what is the last drink called but I love it, gassy, yet a bit diluted feel but with asam that pulls in the taste of it.

All of us waiting patiently for our food to come and been explain by a friendly host. He is really a great guy.

As I remember when I was studying in Melb I used to hate this a lot because of the vegetable ingredient that they use and my housemate used to ta pau a lot back because he work in a restaurant till my Vietnamese friend teach me how to enjoy it and now it had become one of my favourite.

‘Summer Roll Shrimp, Chicken, Salad & Rice Vermicelli’ RM3.95 per roll as it was wrap solid as it is and you must dip it with the dipping sauce(taste something like, ‘Shrimp paste/penang rojak paste’) to make it very flavourful. Mine this round was pure vegetarian roll. Still as good as it is.

We had a mini version of the appetizer is for food tasting purpose making sure we enjoy most of it.

Lemon Grass Chicken @RM7.95 per plate of 4 sticks
Fried Roll @RM3.25 per roll
Sugar Cane Prawn @RM7.95 per plate of 4 sticks

As this round me on vegetarian,so got no chance to try out but only to see and swallow my saliva but based on my previous food outing, the sugar cane prawn was grill and very aromatic.

 

When it comes to Vietnam food, beef is always their signature. It would be best to eat with beef as ‘Beef Pho with combination of Steak, Brisket, Flank, Tendon and Tripe’ @RM16.95 which is my all time favourite that all the lembu spare parts are in there. The soup base is clear and sweet as it taste like the parts had been cook along in it for hours.

As today I am hunting for healthy food concept, the next serving would be ‘Vermicelli with Veggie and Grilled Chicken’(mine without the chicken) RM12.95. To best eat it is to pour the gravy in, and mix it around like rojak then you eat. Something light and healty which fill in your taste bud with a bit of sour, sweet and clear feeling for you. The chicken meat is to pull up the taste of the veggie which goes along very well with it as what I have been told.


My vegetarian version.

I love my fried taufu very much as it is, fried to perfection to my likings that the outer layer is a bit solid crust crispy and the inside is soft and hot yet the show the taufu with the Vietnamese sauce is just heavenly.

Besides that, they do have ‘Seafood Noodle Soup’ as I did not try out this one, so cant really comment much on this.

Lastly, we got serve with ‘Net Spring Roll with Ice Cream’, a simple ice cream with fried yam that taste very yammmy which makes a perfect couple. RM5.95.

When comes to Vietnam Food, certainly this is in my list to recommend.

Thanks to Richard for organizing and thanks to Sidney for inviting. My last review on the shop, click here

I am a big fan of ‘tong yuen’ and few months back I have read on CKlam blog that she blog about this newly open shop and sure caught my attention. As every year comes to a Chinese traditional event my mom and my sister will sit down and roll roll roll to make it become round and cook it later and will always tell me by eating this means you are another year older.

A shop which is located around town area and with a lot of famous food around could be very easy to locate this shop.


In the menu, variety of ‘Tong Yuen’ available to suit with a few soup base.

A very classic chinese street decoration but in a modern shop concept would create you the ambiance to eat the desert.

It comes with a few sizes as the smaller version is the plain and the one with the big balls contain fillings in it. A very smooth round balls waiting to be makan and the sweeten soup base is just the right flavor. This would be the ‘Lotus Seed Tang Huen’ RM3.90

When I see the filling is ‘Durian Tong Yuen’ RM3.90. I instantly order it, and if they use the filling of durian puree would taste much better on my thoughts instead of using durian kuih.
Then the lady recommends us to order this their dry version as one of the unique item on the shop. Added another item in our list. When it got serve, we never thought that it would be serve this way. A very new presentable way to serve tong yuen. ‘Lotus Seed Tau Sar’ RM3.20

Its Ying yeong, with two different flavor. I like it a lot with the soft skin texture and the solid soft filling inside is just as good as what it looks.
