In Changkat Bukit Bintang surely is a well known street to many of you. Street party, Bar HOpping & good food is where all those headline would fall into this one street. By strolling up and down this street you will find yourself being harrest by all these aggressive bar people to get you into their outlet. Of course there are some other outlets that approach you in a more friendly polite manner. IT really depends.

The Steakhouse (1)

One of the most recent visit is The Steakhouse by Werner Kuhn’s establishment and I am sure many of you have heard this well known pork place in the area – El Cerdo. Its the same owner as you just need to walk across the street. This place would be my second visit and make no surprise to me that on weekdays the restaurant is on 80% capacity also known as one of the best place to hunt for steak in Changkat Bukit Bintang.

The Steakhouse (2)

The Steakhouse (3)

If you are looking for a place with 1 stone kill 2 bird then The Steakhouse is one of the restaurant to consider as it is also part of The Whiskey Bar that seriously offer lots of whiskey that my jaw would drop off. If you look/ read thru their list you will be amazed on what kind range they are providing.

The Steakhouse (4)

Its a connected place whereby one outlet offer classy bar seating area and next door is more for dining.

The Steakhouse (5)

This is what I mean that they have a few cabinate that display most of their available Whisky and they have a lot of classic and 25 years old or even more than that available in here.

The Steakhouse (6)

AT their bar counter, there are mountains of opened whisky that you can order by shots.

The Steakhouse (7)

Not only that, if you love cigars then they do have it here and you will enjoy it by sipping on your whisky.

The Steakhouse (9)

Heading back to The Steakhouse as the menu is pretty straight forward. As what You see now is the only menu that they are offering. 3 pages as the last page is desserts.

The Steakhouse (10)

Being at such a bar before heading to Whisky, I started off with Cocktail ..

1) Margarita @ RM28 pretty decent as I find that the alcohol is very much strong and hint of lime is slightly visible.

2) Whisky Sour is one of my favorite drink. Easy to drink and lemon skin slices being added in to enhance on the taste. It pairs well with most of my starters. I had 3 glass. 😀 @ RM28

3) Classic Mojito @ RM28 is a well balance alcohol with mint leaves is sufficient enough to pull up the taste of it. .

The Steakhouse (11)

Next I ask the floor manager what is good to have next then he introduce drinks from Spain.

1) Rose Raspberry Sangria @ RM28

2) White Wine Pear Sangria @ RM28

Both are equally good and consider one of the best I have tried so far or maybe it suits my taste bud. A well balance of alcohol with fruits and among that 2 I prefer the White wine Pear Sangria more as its a bit alcoholic yet I can still taste the sweetness of the fruits being added in. Not only that, its chill enough and pretty refreshing. It goes well with my salad, Oyster and very very well with my escargot.

The Steakhouse (12)

Upon ordering our starters, we do not know what to get and the manager highly recommend us to get their Oyster as its fresh and flown in a day ago. We order without any hesitation and no regret after all. I am not a big fan of oyster but I ended up having 5 pieces myself. ITs so sweet and tasty just with squeezing a bit of lemon and 2 drops of tosbasco.  1 Fresh Live Oyster on ice with Shallot-Wine Vinaigrette RM9/piece. If you pair this with the right choice of white wine, it will be a bomb!

The Steakhouse (13)

Came next is Portobello mushroom with spinach & seafood @ RM26 per piece which I find it reasonable as coated with aromatic baked cheese serve along with big size mushroom and prawns.

The Steakhouse (14)

Something tone down abit your taste bud would be Caesar salad as they served their version here slightly different. Instead of using bacon, they are using smoked duck to enhance the taste of it also its slight chewy. One of the reason they using this also wanted to hold onto their Pork FREE status.. RM26

The Steakhouse (15)

Wow wow.. Looking at this picture makes me droll again as this is one of the places that serve really good escargots. It was baked perfectly with garlic herb butter and cheese. It was so aromatic upon it was serve and its perfect in taste as it smells that the snail is a bit chewy and did not over cook it and we drink the whole thing especially on the garlic herbs sauce that left behind. A MUST ORDER! RM 12 per peice

The Steakhouse (16)

Before we head into our red med, Duck Foie Gras is the last to serve. Nicely done = and the foie gras are still moist paired in chef’s special sauce. RM42

The Steakhouse (17)

The soup are prepared ahead and then baked in oven with melted cheese on top of the croutons.  RM22

The Steakhouse (18)

Mushroom soup with olive oil @ RM 20

The Steakhouse (21)

Beef Stroganoff @ RM48

This is one of the dish would falls into my very highly RECOMMENDED dish. I love this dish as I have tried a very good one over sea and locally its still hard for me to find one and I must say, finally I have found something that I like. YOu must not miss this dish when you are here as the potato rosti being pan fried till crips on both side and soft in the inside also as the side serve with beef stripes are tender and. Mushroom sauce taste pretty good too.

The Steakhouse (19)

BBQ Short Ribs @ RM78

The Steakhouse (20)

On my last visit, I did order this and this round order this again as I find it very good. Season well, then went into grill till the outer layer end up with grill mark yet inside is cook just nice. The meat is so soft that just by using fork, it easily tear off.

a

The Steakhouse (22)

Grilled Black Cod Fish @ RM58

Thick black cod fish fillet served with parsley, potato, mushroom and creamy wasabi pesto sauce

The Steakhouse (23)

First read to appear is Charcoal Grilled Australian Grain Fed Beef Medallion @ RM88

A medallion shaped cut beef and then charcoal grilled then place on hot plates upon serving to the customer

The Steakhouse (24)

Black Angus Tenderloin @ RM98

The Steakhouse (25)

Cook to the condition as I like medium rare and the steak is still juicy with the mark left behind too as the hot plate is still grilling on the beef while you are eating. Juicy and tender.

The Steakhouse (26)

I am very full till now then flipping thru what whisky set I should try, Full Japanese series or full 18 years old series. Ended up trying both.

The Steakhouse (34)

Serving the whisky takes a bit long as you all might know that its just pouring on a shot or 2. Well, one of the reason as they have this very unique kinetic mechine help to shape ice, just by putting a square cube of blog ice in the middle then let the top cover do its magic.

The Steakhouse (36)

Tadaa… after about 3 minutes it had been shape up like that to be added into the glass and serve with the set.

The Steakhouse (27)

Japanese Tasting Set which consist 4 different years whiskey on your tasting tray. Each were explained on its characteristic and tasting method. Please do not spoil this great whisky with coke as many of you do. ITs either on neat or mix with water. On this tasting series is the Japanese Suntory distillery’s famous Yamazaki, Hibiki and Hakushu ranging from 12 to 22 years. In here still Yamazaki is the winner for me.

The Steakhouse (29)

Next tray is Perfect 18 means 5 taster of 18 years old whisky from 5 different whisky disstealeries

The Steakhouse (32)

 

 

The Steakhouse (37)

Last but not least, when you are full till like a fat pig could not walk, who say you cant eat anymore! There is always room for dessert no matter how your full condition is. Love the Mango taste and the original is not bad too.

The Steakhouse (38)

Tiramisu @ RM22.50

The Steakhouse (39)

Baked Cheese Cake is pretty decent as its soft that can still taste on the cheese not too thick either. @ RM22.50

The Steakhouse (40)

Looking at their own dessert signature series, Andreas Special on the left come with difference ice cream! It come with white chocolate ice cream, milky chocolate mousse, chocolate crumble, banana in passion fruit and pear in red wine. If you are slightly adventurous and would want a slightly well balance taste then don miss this. AS Andres special (left) have a quite well balance taste with sour, sweet, and slightly bitter end then you must hunt this down!

 

The Steakhouse (41)

Werner and Andreas Special @  RM22.50 each

As the dining came to an end I discover that their most expensive beef is not the best I have had and I find that The Steakhouse have its advantage as the one slightly cheaper taste better for me. Moist, juicy and just right! Since everything is juicy, our receipt also very juicy.

Tug in a very hidden corner inside of Sapura Kencana Petroleum building in the area of Publika, you will find this little fine dine restaurant, Millesime. I have heard friends mention about this restaurant last year, as they serve excellent food that is a little pricey but worth the spending.

Update 1/1/2017]: NO Longer in Operation

millesme (1)

I do believe some of you are like me, eat till do not know what to eat for the day or next meal. One special style about this restaurant is that they do not have a proper menu for you to choose from, mostly will be the best set of the day as both of the chef uses or sources best ingredient of the day then come out with the menu in the morning itself. Therefore, if you dine daily here, you will have different types of food being serve.

Or if you feel being adventurous, just sit down and let the chef enlighten you with their specialty.

millesme (2)

millesme (3)

Ambiance of the restaurant with their hidden corner of the building, that gives us alot of privacy, not to mention service here is excellent as the floor manager really do know their stuff.

millesme (4)

millesme (5)

millesme (6)

The restaurant also just recently won an awards.

millesme (7)

millesme (8)

Its a huge open concept restaurant that they  have and you can look at the chef cook right infront of them at viewing area.

millesme (9)

Left menu will be set of the day and the right menu which they have recently came up are ala – cart menu for the week.

millesme (10)

As we were seated, we are serve along with toast of the day that made fresh daily and serve along with seaweed butter, that is one of the chef signature.

millesme (11)

When the manager put this few slices of bread on the table, it smells so good that we have to get a slice of it. Love grew towards the bread when we spread the seaweed butter along. Strong taste of seaweed with mild butter end, as eat more and we tend to spread the butter ticker till we ask for another round of butter, till Ken and me just cut half of the butter slice, and just eat it.

millesme (12)

After stuff myself for 5 slices of bread, next serve along is Amuse Bouche serve with a cut of shitake mushroom wrap with a slice of slice of smoked duck is bursting with flavour in my mouth follow by and  mashed roasted aubergines got top with feta cheese.

millesme (13)

Some of them commented, this is one of a beautiful presented dish that its so hard for them to start eating is Gravlax of Snapper and Salmon with Mizuno Leaves and Shaddock Nuggets @ RM32. Hard work had been putting in to prepare thsi dish, as been marinated with sugar, salt, lemon rind and dill for 4 days.  Then little round of salmon are place on the side, then shower with a golden-hued tangy citrus vinaigrette, Manukka honey and mustard.

millesme (14)

This is no ordinary tomato soup, as Smoked Herring and Oregano Oil are poured into Rustic Tomato Soup.

millesme (15)

Soup is creamy and slightly thick, as smoked carrots and leek were blend along. The taste is perfect when mixed with the smoked herring as it add the kick onto the taste. . I am definitely recommending this soup, as its unique in its kind.  @ RM23

millesme (16)

Squid Ink Linguine with Calamari, Chilli and Pesto in Olio @ RM45

millesme (17)

As the pasta is cook slightly moist, and with the perfection of al dante in spaghetti . Squid were fresh as its chewy, cook along with cherry tomato.

millesme (18)

Before our mains, we next have our Palate CleanserStrawberry Sherbet

millesme (19)

This dish will definitely be top in my list as Slow Braised Wagyu Beef Short Ribs with Polenta and Mushroom Ragout @ RM58  by the side.  Chef Patrick explained that the short ribs been braised for 6 hours with red wine and the taste of the sauce is extremely good, aromatic and strong in taste that the wagyu beef need not knife to cut it, a gentle touch is good enough to separate it. I enjoy every bite of it by slowly munching.

millesme (20)

Comes to dessert – Valrhona Dark Chocolate Souffle served with vanilla ice-cream.

millesme (21)

Chocolate Souffle is fluffy soft .. .

millesme (22)

millesme (23)

The superman behind the kitchen is Chef Patrick Keith

If you are looking at good dining experience, surely this is one of the place to recommend, needless to say for special occasions. If you do have time to spare on Wednesday, its their wine Lunch and in the hurry with your client, they have  3-course Set Lunches at RM60++ per person.

While we were on the way back from our great exploration of a homestay that is located in Orchard Heights at Karak (click here), we were introduce by Major Ng there is a restaurant that we need to hunt on the way back we need to stop by Bentong right before into Genting tunnel if you coming from Karak, as to disappointment that restaurant, closed for private function. As for second alternative that we got introduce is Restaurant 126 along the stretch.

126 (1)

Its a simple Chinese restaurant with plastic chairs and wooden round table.

126 (2)

This is their signature dish, Pork Noodle @ RM 25 – as the pork slice being deep fried to perfection as every bite is filled with cracking sound if the pork doesnt soak too long in the dark sauce. Can taste that the yee mee noodle is more like a homemade version, springy and we ordered another plate of this with a comment “wah lau, can finish meh” ended up finish also. Highly Recommneded~

126 (3)

With Something soupy, we  were introduce with mee hoon with fresh ginger chicken. The soup definately taste ginger spicy as they cook along with lots of ginger, and its very nice. Next round I would order less mee hoon more soup.

126 (4)

Kai Lan with Garlic slice.

126 (5)

126 (6)

Order Fish slice, with mushroom and vegetable.

126 (7)

Wild Boar Pork Curry is another dish that we are enjoying with light spicy and pork being slice thin and cook to perfection.

126 (8)

Second in our top list for the lunch is this Marmite Pai Kuat, well caramelize with sauce and its satisfying. Recommended.

126 (9)

Who can read the bill please help me translate too. It comes with a total with this for 8 pax. Still cheap.

If you wanna make a turn before Genting, you sureby can stop at this area if you coming from KL, as this row of shop house is located right after Genting Tunnel and you have to drive another 15 mins down hill to find the next U turn. It would be another great pit stop for food. Recommended!

It was coffee time, then got a buzz from my friend asking me when am I dropping by at her place for coffee. She watsapp me the picture of her outlet Butter & Beans and I like this chic concept. Moments later quickly drove out and drop by at her place located at Happy Mansion.

Butter and Beans (1)

Another little coffee place that located at this neighbourhood with limited seatings at the outlet.

Butter and Beans (2)

Modern chic New York style concept is where the inspiration is from, then only found out that its actually another new concept by Food Foundry. This is how compact the place is with little seating even 3-4 seats at the coffee bar counter.

Butter and Beans (3)

A place that started off in early November 2012 that focus more on selling bread and pâtisserie that even some of my friend knows about this outlet on their freshness quality product that they are offering.

Butter and Beans (4)

Butter and Beans (5)

I was never a fan of Quiche till when I was working a cafe during uni time whereby my lunch is mostly this.

Butter and Beans (6)

I accidentally deleted on what I had for that time as I order a Latte @ RM 9 and Mushroom Quiche @ RM 10. Quiche is rather nice and simple, definitely fresh and one of a good ones that I have come so far, and to pair along with my coffee is just a lazy coffee break that I am enjoying.

It has been a long long time since I last came back here and hunt for Chuan Chiew Bak Kut Teh in this area. Used to be one of my hang out spots when I was studying, till I have a few disappointed bak kut teh hunting around my housing area till have to come back here for a decent one.

bkt ss14 (1)

SS14 is already quite well know with a street filled with Bak Kut Teh with many offerings. Every shop have their very own customer base and down till which stall you prefer. As too many years back and little did I remember which one was the best and start off with 2nd outlet on the street which is Chuan Chiew.

bkt ss14 (2)

Early dinner it is as the uncle already busy preparing all his ingredient and cutting it off for waiting customer.

bkt ss14 (3)

To dine Bak Kut Teh of course the ambiance must be in Kopitiam Style ..

bkt ss14 (4)

2 types of soup base, one which is all the ingredient being boil along and another one is to mix it around.

bkt ss14 (5)

After mixture or order, and putting it into claypot, its left on this stove to boil till pippin hot.

bkt ss14 (6)

I quite like the Dry Bak Kut Teh here as its cook along with dry shrimp, taste of squid that make the slight saltiness and thick soy sauce to make it thick, along with chili padi to make it slightly spicy. Just perfect.

bkt ss14 (7)

My pippin hot claypot bak kut teh ..

bkt ss14 (8)

I have a mixture of meat, variety of parts, meat is not too tough yet cook till soft as i prefer. The sad part is always remember to order your needle mushroom to be separated if not the taste of it will over power the taste of the soup. As I order another portion without it. Soup base here is mild not so herbal which most of the locals prefer. Soup definitely can be refillable. I prefer mine to be strong in herbal taste but this is good enough to satisfy.

bkt ss14 (9)

Overall came up to RM61.20 for soup with portion of 4 and dry bak kut teh with 2 portion and 3 of us just whack it.

Wow . . how many new brands have you guys come across recently.? One of the brand that I often walk pass by when ever I was in Sunway Pyramid is this Planet Popcorn kiosk that located directly below TGV cinema have quite some fair bit of people are purchasing this product. At first glance, it doesnt look appealing to me until recently the open another kiosk at Mid Valley.

Planet Popcorn (1)

It was rather interesting that during on the day itself it was their first few days of opening and they were giving sampling away and learn with there are actually 8 flavours available. Then I ask what is the best flavour for a first timer for me to try. The friendly promoter bring me to one section that filled with all those 8 flavours and recommend me to try out.

Planet Popcorn (8)

Try out Caramel . ..

Planet Popcorn (9)

Cheese

Planet Popcorn (10)

Sea Weed .. .  loving it. .

Top 3 favourite that I like are:

1) Wasabi, See Weed and Cheese.

I would highly recommend these few flavors for first timers. Or maybe you can try out their other flavor if they do have tester.

Planet Popcorn (3)

Price wise is not that expensive or I would say reasonable for a big pack like that.

Planet Popcorn (4)

Cute little logo that they have and different flavour have different logo. . .

Planet Popcorn (5)

Planet Popcorn (6)

We can either buy this in a pack or in a huge tub, that mostly had been air tight.

Planet Popcorn (7)

The I enquire on a few other details and one of the owner over heard my questions and he came by to greet. We had a chat as I further learn the brand itself as it is actually from Taiwan. Cool, another new Taiwan line of products coming into Malaysia. How they come by this idea is that, popcorn is part of our life especially hitting onto the cinema’s, watching tv’s or some chatting away with friends you need something to munch, as these nibblers will be great to input further into our society.

Their pop corn seeds are improted directly from US with the effect of the shape is totally different more eye-pleasing, mushroom round hand-made. It is also manually roasted, it contains absolutely no preservatives, butter, trans fat and artificial flavorings.

This outlet would be their 8th outlet as they had started the brand since last year Oct and its pretty fast growing. I was like ‘Wow’ and further discover that its actually own by him and another 2 best friends. Friendly lad

Planet Popcorn (2)

There are currently eight Planet Popcorn outlets in the country, namely Sunway Pyramid, Berjaya Times Square, Pavilion, Setia City Mall, Paradigm Mall, The Mines, i-City and MidValley Megamall.

Well,I bought their starter pack with 6 flavours (Original, Curry, Wasabi, Cheese, Caramel and Curry) at RM 39.90 to try out more, as I love watching movies and now there is another option I can get for popcorn. . .

I find that cant compare this brand with Garrett as they are in different league, although Garrett is more premium taste much better  and much more expensive but to me, I can take only a few pieces from Garrett. I guess comes, again different people have different preference. Garrett is too LV for me . .
