[repost from year 2011] – updated pictures with all broken links.

In this neighborhood, I always thought that the area only I know is on the Food Foundry area that side which only filled with food to hunt. . never did I know that actually there is another small kopitiam area located on another side of it which is quite famous for its lunch crowd among all my colleague and one of the shop that they introduce me which is Hong Seng Kopitiam which is famous for its BBQ Pork (Char Siew) and also their Chicken Rice..

Chicken Rice (1)

Left office around 12.30pm where was told to head there earlier to avoid the crazy queue. When I reach, the queue is already up to the next 2 shop lot.

Chicken Rice (2)

Chicken Rice (3)

Just a simple chicken rice stall like that which is only famous for its BBQ pork can attract many pork lovers out there. Roast pork hanging and the feel and look of it doesn’t attract me much, also decided to give it a try.

Chicken Rice (4)

Chicken Rice (5)

Then we order the Char Siew of 6 pax, that comes in whole big plate like this with a bit mix of Roast pork and chicken was not in the list cuz they said its not good. BBQ pork is good, with burn end is crisp, soft juicy meat that well coated with their own special sauce and I just cant stop eating it. Roast Pork did not impress me that much as I had better ones before, as here the head is not that crispy as I like and the meat is quite dry  even though the meat with fats are my type just doesn’t give me a kick in it.

Chicken Rice (7)

Ahhh, this sure impress all of us, sour and spicy soup, which is quite sour enough that boiled till a bit messy with the ingredients and just lack of not spicy enough. If it had add a bit more of dry chili then would be perfect but no complain as their version win a lot of places.

Chicken Rice (9)

Then I saw next table order some pig innards then I was wondering where to order that, its located behind section operate by a old uncle that sell s porridge and I order pig intestine which is good! Chewy, and flavorful from the soy sauce he is cooking. RM 8 for this portion which is pretty reasonable. . .

Chicken Rice (8)

Our whole lunch meal comes to a total of RM8 per pax after divided out with 6 pax.. which is a good value and satisfy . . I would say, just attack the BBQ pork here, do try out others too if you like . . Just be there early to avoid the heavy lunch crowd at 1pm.

Coffea Coffee is one of the latest joint to pop up in the Jalan Telawi neighbourhood. Never knew what it was as I was dining nearby and the concept looks pretty interesting. Decided to pop by to give it a try.

From there only learn that its actually a Korean Franchise brand that making its wave to Malaysia begining of this year.

coffee (1)

This are one of the few coffee place that really decorate up the place because they are franchise chain and have to follow suit on certian interior design. NEvertheless sure its one of a comfortable place to hang out.

coffee (2)

Looking at their menu, I am impress on their coffee range as not only their original of coffee product that they are carrying they also do sell some single origins coffee. Decided to try one out columbian whereby my friend he used to order.

coffee (6)

there are some cakes available too. Never tempted to try or maybe I just finish my dinner. 🙂

coffee (7)

Anna trying out their Latte as it is well presented with a design of leaf, with their own signature cup.

coffee (8)

Taste wise is not very strong nor acidic. Its very mild.

coffee (9)

Single origin columbian coffee I would not say much as it falls into milder version as well.

Only upon I write this post, that most Korean coffee are pretty mild. I am not too sure all the way in Korea, keen to try out their coffee if I ever do visit that country again.

Certainly this is one great place to hang out as its always filled with alot of patrons whenever I pass by there and if you are asking me how is the coffee? Well, I can say I got plenty others to recommend.

Sometimes, its really good to have a nice neigbourhood bar or I consider those outlets inside Hartamas is part of neighbourhood driven. Nevertheless, there is one new bar that open its door few months back and just recently discover on it. I did pass by here many times and notice on it as just didnt pay a visit till 2 weeks back. PReviously was another pub and now being taken over by new group had turn it into Chapter One.

Then our funny question came about, where is Chapter tWo and Three. Eventually we found out that their future expension is going to go along that line, to mark on how many outlets they have.

Chapter One (1)

something I love about this place is they comes with free Jockey service and this definately give them an advantage to many players in this area and for ladies, you don have to be worry cuz their service is from 6pm till you drunk. Love how they put it their operation time. 😀

Chapter One (2)

Chapter One (3)

with new management, it also means the whole interior also change, as its more nice and love how they cleverly redesign their bar.

Chapter One (4)

I was there from 7.30-11pm that nite and this pool table were never once empty. It was being monopolise by those few guys the whole night and of course with the rules, winner stay.

Chapter One (5)

Chapter One (6)

They serve 5 GAB draught beers (Guinness, Kilkenny, Heineken, Strongbow, and Tiger) ranging from RM12 up to RM16 for a glass, RM17 to RM23 for a pint and RM45 to RM60 for a jug. There are no happy hour for beers, but the ala carte price for the beers are reasonably priced. So, that’s beer hours for all day long! Apart from these selection of beers, there are also other beers sold in bottles.

Chapter One (7)

Their food range is pretty okay . .

Chapter One (8)

And since they have something new in this outlet, the bar manager creatively combine a few beers to make up his very own special beer cocktail and its in the menu now.

1) Strongbow Mojito – On our hot day, this will comes in good. Refreshing as it comes with a few flavours. Apple do pair well with this as Strongbow do have sweet end taste.

2) The Sex on the Beach is a mixture of Skyy Original, Peach, Cranberry and Orange juice.

3) Strawberry Daiquiri, mixture of Bacardi Carta Blanc, Creme De Fraise and Lime Squeeze. The presentation is cute.

Chapter One (9)

SAM_5290

Beer Cocktail Promo with a choice of 2 form the list:

Chapter One (9)

Let me introduce you one of my favourite unique beer cocktail first. Comes with A mixture of Guinness, Bailey’s and Irish Whiskey.

Chapter One (10)

The Irish Whiskey is added into the glass before dropping the “bomb” (Bailey’s).

Chapter One (11)

Once the bomb is dropped, this need to be drank up immediately! Love the creamy feeling and once down, you burp and you feel the heat in your stomac. Its something like Flaming Lambo but this is the beer version. Perfect gift for birtday boy and girl.

Chapter One (12)

Other beer cocktail I find it interesting is of course

1) The Snack Bite Black Pint looked like a sunrise in a pint. It is a combination of Strongbow Apple Cider, Lager and Blackcurrant

2) this name caught our attention – Lunch Box for a beer cocktail name, it’s catchy.. Lunch Box is a mixture of Lager, Orange and Amaretto Disorono..

3) Previously I have seen so much about the posting of this combination of Strongbow and Guinness but yet find any outlet that promote it and now this outlet has it.. Its a bit smooth on the top cuz starting off with Guinness and further down its a great mixture of bitter and sweet end. Not bad~

Chapter One (13)

Chapter ONE Seafood Salad consists of prawn, mussels, cuttlefish, onion rings, croutons, coral lettuce, olives and cherry tomato, served with homemade thousand island dressing. I must say, the salad do impress me and its pretty good.

Chapter One (14)

If you are here for their live band and beer, then Crispy Pork Ribs is a MUST HAVE! The pork ribs are well marinated with fermented bean curd and served with sweet and sour homemade Thai chili sauce. It is serve pipin hot, with a bit crips on the end and aromatic. Perfect to go along with any alcohol on your table. .

Chapter One (15)

Pork Meatball

Chapter One (22)

Chapter ONE Sliced beef consists of grilled Angus Beef slice served with Japanese Soya Sauce and Wasabi. Its pretty good stuff, and for a price of RM 18, its a good bargain with many slices and its juicy.

Chapter One (17)

Pan-Seared Black Bass @ RM26

Chapter One (19)

Classic Pork Burger here are done with homemade style. weight about 200g per patty served with melted cheese, grilled red pepper, sauteed onion, mushroom and potato fries @ RM 28.

Chapter One (20)

Braised Lamb Shank @ RM38

Chapter One (16)

Their Spaghetti range is not bad too. We took off with Spaghetti Carbonara @ RM18 light creamy base although I always prefer mine to be thick as not many people like that. This is more generic.

Chapter One (18)

Spicy Seafood Aglio Olio Pasta not the best but certianly better than quite a number of places. With hint of garic spaghetti moist enough. @ RM23

Chapter One (21)

Pork Meatball Pasta would be better if the sauces can be slightly more sourish. @ RM20

Chapter One (23)

Another extra point for this outlet is that their live band is good and its available everyday EXCEPT SUNDAY. Service here is good too.

After bubble milk hit hard on our local shores then what is the next buzz? Well, there are 2 actually as now little cafe’s are popping up in many corner and there are a few good ones and burger is also the next big thing here. One of the latest outlet to open its door to public is KGB (Killer Gourmet Burgers) that located the same row as Antipodean Jalan Telawi there.

KGB (1)

Its a small shop that operating around the area that soon to be filled with many coffee joints. Started off bout less than a month if I am not mistaken and its start to gain its popularity over the neighbourhood with a few bloggeres blogged about them.

KGB (2)

On our first visit we came it was rather dissapointed cuz we did not know the opereate only at night for the 1st month and for the following week, we decided to come back for dinner. STaff here are very helpful and friendly as they are explaining to us what to eat and try for first timer.

KGB (3)

Menu are pretty straight forward with what types of meat you prefer and there is not much to choose from which makes us easier to make up our mind.

KGB (4)

KGB (5)

chicken bites are pretty good though, fried to crips and the best thing to pair with it is their special made sauce. Light sourish end that goes well with it.

KGB (6)

Kimchi with Bulgogi Beef Fries @ RM 13.90

KGB (7)

this is another item that attracted our attention. Looks good but the taste is still room for improvemement as we did gave our feedback to them.

KGB (8)

If you cant take beef then this is one of the choices to go for. Seoul Chicken @ RM 15.90, find that the taste is bit funny.

KGB (15)

on the size of the chicken breast that they are using, its quite thick, and still juicy after fried.

KGB (9)

All their burgers come in their signature and one of the best is not only their patty is also their bun. I love it as its soft and fluffy yet toast to my likings.

KGB (10)

The Bobcat burger @ RM15.90 made with luscious green chili slaw & jalapeno mayo. If you cant take spicy then skip this as the spicy dont hit you instantly. It comes after that. To me its still okay.

KGB (11)

The Shack turns out to be one of my favourite in the list @ RM13.90 nett, the patty is fragrant and juicy top with a slice of cheddar cheese with Shack sauce sandwiched in the fresh, fluffy bread. I just called it Cheeze burger. One of the best in the list that wont go wrong. – Highly Recommended

KGB (12)

The Tornado @ RM15.90 – Looks big that filled with onnion rings, fried egg and fiery mayo. I expect this to be spicy because of the word fiery mayo but didnt enlighten me with that.

KGB (13)

I must say that the chef here are pretty good that able to make nearly all my range of burgers medium, that make it soft and juicy. All of us love it.

KGB (14)

this is one of the special homemade sauce. Its good!

Remark: Do take not that some of the burgers are filled with sauces and it might get messy . . Do take tissue to prepare. 😀

There is 2 row of shop houses sitting right in the middle of the whole neighbourhood in Damansara Heights, you will be spoil for selections of what to dine in this area. Not only that, its an area also pretty well know for Happy Hours with a few bar is in this area. The Full Moon Bar is no exception from that too.

[No Longer In operation] – currently is Huckleberry

Moon (1)

Operating about a year plus, it had start to gain popularity around the non muslim as this is one of a only very few outlets that serve Pork. With hot weather recently, its a great bonus to discover that they are serving set lunch now starting from RM12.90.

Moon (2)

Moon (3)

AS the night is young, we are serve with their signature Mojitos.

Moon (4)

We get to sample some of their signature for the night that starting off witha platter of Spicy Fried Chicken Wing, Black Pepper Lamb Parcels, Fried Breaded Mozzarella and a skewer of Roast Pork Belly and Chargrilled Honey Lime Chicken. 

Moon (5)

If you do hang out at the outlet for beers, then Roast Pork Belly and Chargrilled Honey Lime Chicken will pair very well with it as the marination of both dish is very well done and cook to perfection, along with the chicken is fried till crips and aromatic.

Moon (6)

Next we were told to challage on this dish with its excessive spiciness level  is Butter Briyani Rice with Spicy Sri Lankan Tamarind Pork Belly and Mutton Varuval.  When this plate is serve, the aroma of the curry and spices filled up our nose instantly. First few bites of the briyani rice is bursting with spices and flavours are awesome! Then after that, I am burst with excessive spiciness that just hit hard on my tongue. Love the taste of the spiciness, but not really a fan of cloves as they cook pretty much in it. If they tone it down, then would have been a perfect dish.

Both Pork Belly and Mutton are cook to perfection with the curry are well marinate and coated on the meat. Taste of Mutton is more outstanding than the pork.

Moon (7)

As the days pass, the demand of  Hokkien Mee for supper is pretty good. With consumption of beer into our belly, the version of Hokkien Mee is shower with alot of Chu Yau Cha (Pork Lard). If you find that the current serving is lack of  it, you can just order extra Pork lard at RM 4. For a Bar to cook Hokkien Mee, I must say its pretty impressive!

Moon (8)

Not only Hokkien Mee in Demand as their Bak Kut Teh is also another popular dish among many people who are looking for supper in the outlet.

Moon (9)

Broth been cooked for hours to get the best taste of it, and do note that the taste of the soup here is not strong in herbs as customer here prefer mild version.

Moon (10)

At the end of the meal, we were pamper with Cheng Yi (Fatboybakes) cakes. As always, his cakes never dissapoint us and always on top notch. If you do plan to order, can check out his website. fatboybakes.blogspot.com

Moon (11)

If you are lazy to drive far and staying around the area, then Moon Bar might be one of your choice with add on bonus as on Friday nights. With veteran jazz pianist David Gomes and friends, known as the “David Gomes Trio”, will entertain all of you for the night.

St Patrick celebration been kick off and Moon Bar is also having Guinness promo till the end of the month..  Ladies Nights are on every Wednesday, Karaoke Nights on Thursdays, Quiz Nites and Special Events on Saturdays.

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.
