After touring around the city, then all of us were pretty exhausted by the morning flew over, Press Conference and Official Launch of SANYO Xacti, mini tour of the Resort World and just head into the restaurant. When we reach the restaurant and were told by the rest of the friends, that the restaurant was actually located quite near Universal Studio and we walk one big round towards this place but it was a good window tour. . .

Here we are, in Chinoiz Restaurant that serve Fine Chinese Food.

Chinois

Chinois (2)

Love the interior with a bit of modern Oriental style, lit with dim light and the place is very comfortable.

That I do not mind to sit there and chat all night long~

Chinois (3)

Chinois (4)

The selection of alcohol prepare for all the guest.

Chinois (6)

with French wine is one of the selection for the night.

Chinois (7)

We were there early, and we manage to take a lot of pictures with the models and some of the products.

Chinois (8)

The picture printing were sponsor by Sanyo and it was printed on the spot.

Chinois (9)

Then not long after that, they move us to a VIP room, the whole room just for us, Malaysian Media.

Chinois (10)

and I look at the menu, I got all excited bymyself, and I told Witch, she got excited too as we did not expect the food list would be so grand.

Chinois (19)

With the price tag on the menu, it certainly is reasonable if do not the conversion rate.

While we were happily chatting, then came a waitress ask us what drinks we would like to have and I ask her back, then she said, fruit juice (many types of juices including custom made order), red/white wine, Champaign, beer (Tiger, Heinaken, Tsing Tao) and we were like errrr errrrr..juices first.. all still very pai seh including me.

When the first guy start to order alcohol, then here comes the order for it.

Chinois (12)

We tried every selection of it. We love the wine as it was smooth and of course the best selection of all night was Red and champaign.

Chinois (13)

This is my selection.

Chinois (14)

Not long after the drinks, first dish of the night arrive with ‘Chilled Momotaro Tomato Salad topped with Sake marinated Confit of Lobster’. I just do not know how to say or I would say it was one of a perfect appetizer to start of with. Simple taste that preserves the fresh sweet taste of the lobster and tomato is to add in some sweet sour taste onto it, Perfect!

Chinois (15)

‘Double-boiled Shark’s fin with Sea Treasures served in Coconut’, when we saw this serving, we were like wahhh!!!! And the smell of the soup taste travels and fill into the room, till the moment it was place down, some of them even ready with spoon and attack , with just a slice of bacon on top of the soup was already unique yet inside a coconut shell. . .

Chinois (16)

To our surprise, we scoop up quite huge abalone in it and it taste awesome! Sweet, juicy and very aromatic with the soup taste.

Chinois (17)

then we also found a slab of shark fin, which was told it is a good quality, we never care, we just enjoy our soup, it was sweet, aromatic with seafood sweet taste and the coconut flavour did not overpower the rest of the taste. It was one of the best soup I have drank so far.

Chinois (18)

‘Crisp-fried Fillet of Marble Goby served with Mixed Green salad and Mint leaves’
As it looks pretty simple to me in such a long plate, but it proves me wrong. Fried crispy on the outer layer and the fillet in there is soft, by dipping with the sauce given, it just taste excellent!

Chinois (21)

‘Pan-seared Australian Wagyu beef with Foie Gras’
Pan grill to my liking with medium that cut it with sharp knife ooze out the juice and blood of it, dipping with the sauce on the plate, it taste good and the foie gras was grilled perfect too, that preserve the outer layer a bit cook and inside is soft and juicy. Great main course as it goes very well with the red wine.

Chinois (22)

‘Braised Mee Sua in Noble Tan Fu Sauce served with Freshly-peeled Crab Claw’

Chinois (23)

Fresh juicy solid crab meat that had cook well in it.

Chinois (24)

Mee sua that just cook in the right condition which is not too soft yet still soak the soup base of it while pulling up.

Chinois (25)

‘Gratin of Assorted Berries and Fruits in Passion Fruit Sabayon’ would be perfect for girls as all the berries are sour in taste with cream top on it, to me its not bad as I take it to cool down my alcohol level.

 
Then Nick Manage to pass us a unit of Xacti and Witch took her SD card to film it, and surprise us that the quality is good.

Chinois (28)

After we finish our dinner and alcohol keep pouring in, some that did not talk so much began to talk a lot, and suddenly bang…the 2 models came in and thought of trying to pose something different, James Bond in Soh Loook. 😀

Chinois (27)

Then of course in this kind of event, a group picture must not miss with bloggers, Magazine Media, Stuff, Click, Velocity, NST and some others.

Chinois (29)

with one of the manager that she and Nick host us for the night and of course the boss too. We just do not know what to say as the seriously pamper and provide us 5 star hospitality. Thank you is the only word I can say.

Chinois (30)

With all the booze being in all the time, and before we head back to hotel, of course we need to let it out and it is good to see ah Ong stim again~ and definately, this is one of the very first restaurant I would recommend in Singapore.

Location:
Chinois Restaurant

Lunch: 12:00pm – 03:00pm (Last order at 02:30pm)
Dinner: 06:00pm – 11:00pm (Last order at 10:30pm)

I just go through a few blogs to find the address for this and didn’t know that this shop is actually a hit in the town with the taste and especially the chili flakes. This place was introduce by my friends when we were hunting for our company dinner dress.

Kin Kin

Their signature which is, this very chili flakes that a lot of people just add on many table spoonful of it onto their bowl but I felt that there is nothing fancy on this flakes or I would say there are actually a few shops are better than this.

Kin Kin (3)

‘Mix of Pork and Fish Ball’, loves the springy feel of both flavor as what I preferred. Pork ball is abit solid yet gives me the compact bite of it and not a big fan of fish balls yet it does gives the soft springy feel.

Kin Kin (4)

‘Soup Pan Mee’ taste not bad with the taste of anchovies that gives a bit of salty inside the clear soup yet flour taste comes from pan mee, added on with mince meat added on the flavor.

Kin Kin (5)

If you do not like soup base then you should try their ‘Dry Pan Mee’ which I prefer more than the soup base. I have mine added on with the semi boil egg.

Kin Kin (6)

I did like what other people did just by adding on the chili flakes, its just not bad after all to make the taste slightly better.

With the price tag around RM5-RM8 I would say its not a expensive place to eat in with their prompt service there is actually nothing to complain about.

It has been a while that I last meet my buddy Andy, one of my crazy buddies when we were studying in Australia back in those days. Have not heard from this siau kia for quite a while till 2 weeks ago, got a sms from him saying that he is opening a new restaurant. I was like wow..he is progressing liau..

How I get to know this siau kia..? Get to know this crazy guy through my housemate. One thing that I really respect him was how he supported himself all the way from paying his own tuition fees, living expenses till he bought his own car. He studies engineering back in those days but work as a assistant chef as part time. When we on form, we would ask him cook for us and we assist as he really do cook good food. Our quote on that time was play hard never study hard! Lol~

We came back to Malaysia for good 3 years ago, and he decided to open a small restaurant shop when he came back. I still remember what he told me about his plan when he ventures into this industry and now he is slowly growing his empire and walking towards his dreams. His very first shop is still located at Megamall, Butterworth, this is the second branch and the 3rd branch is opening soon at middle of this month at Kulim industrial park same row as Secret Recepi there.

Now, his 2nd new restaurant is located strategically in Sunway Carnival that I would say one of a inn mall at Butterworth. In Penang, people are always hunting for something cheap and nice and being a lot of franchises available out in the market like O-Town, Kopitiam, Papa Rich yet I must say that, the food quality not only match the competitor but taste much better compare to what available in those shops. With the price tag charge on his food, what could you ask for more but only to enjoy.



With his own idea and design interior had created a great combination of ambiance and the food style which he is serving in the shop.

A wide range of selection available. If you find that Locals doesnt suit your taste bud then you can go for Western.If you too feel that is not good enough, Japanese choices are available too.

In this menu, the siau kia mention that its only 40% of the range that what he had in mind and we got a bit shock after hearing it but yet excited with the wide variety going to be available. Siau..its already so many choice available its like will take you half a month to try every food individually.His food range in this shop are the favourites based on customers favourite and feedback with improvise of taste that what he had done on his old shop.

We start off with a wide range of drinks with his recommendation that would be peoples favorite. ‘Fresh Carrot-Orange’ (RM3.50), ‘Mango Smoothies’ (RM5.50), ‘Wheatgrass Smoothies’ (RM5.50), ‘Peppermint Mocha’ (RM7.80), ‘Blueberry Chocolate’ (RM7.80), ‘Hazelnut Latte’ (RM7.80), ‘Almond Latte’ (RM7.80), and ‘Tiramisu’ (RM7.80). My personal favorite are Wheatgrass Smoothies, Blueberry Chocolate and Hazelnut Latte.

‘Honey Lime Ice’ RM3.80 looks like a hit drink in the shop. I ask him why use lime because lemon finish he replace that with Lime. Something new to us.

When this place was serve all eyes was on this plate and it was past to Ck that side and the aroma of the fried travels. Look so delicious whereby if you did not eat this its a sin. ‘Honey Pepper Roast Chicken Drumlet’ The request were, fast fast take picture we cannot tahan and want to eat this. RM6.90 yet I was thinking it sure would be nice to be accompany by a bottle of beer.

‘Spaghetti Chicken Bolognese’ is something that is very simple yet I enjoy it very much. RM6.90

It has beena while since I last ate this, but yet, this is good with strong taste of cheeze which doesnt over power the taste of tomato and chicken. ‘C’heesy Chicken Lasagna’ RM9.90.

Not only available at Murni but has Penang version too. ‘Mushroom Chicken Chop with Garlic Butter Rice’ RM9.90
I have never thought that ‘Sweet & Spicy Fish Bento’ with a bit of Asian taste could taste so nice. Well fried on the outer layer with the fish meat is soft in the inside just goes amazingly well with the sauce. RM8.50
I love this very much, with the taste of japanese soy sauce yet with the taste of onion and the egg was not cook too dry is just too good to resist. ‘Unagi Fried Egg Rice’ RM12.90,
Fragrance rice filled with some ‘santan’ flavor is something you are looking for ”Nasi Lemak Curry Chicken’ (RM7-90)

If you dislike santan then something with home made chili and well fried anchovis with onion and peanuts comes with the gravy that is ‘Nasi Lemak Rendang Chicken’ is something you are looking for. RM7.90

Fresh big prawns cook with aromatic homemade sambal just makes your taste bud dance and ask for more. ‘Udang Sambal Rice’ RM7.90

 

If you are craving for ‘Ipoh Chicken Slice Noodle’ it is quite okay, no complain but still Ipoh is the best. RM6.90

If you are a big fan of tomyam, this is one of the dish ‘Seafood Tomyam Soup’ that you must not miss. Taste to perfection that well balance sour and spiness at the right level is something you could not ask for more. RM8.50.

It might look normal for ‘Capsicum Prawn Fried Rice’ filled with wok hei yet home made sambal is add in the extra kick in it. We did ask for more of it. RM7.90

Besides of soup version they definately do have ‘Tomyam Seafood Fried Noodle’ RM8.50 its a similiar version to the soup taste, yet of course I prefer very much on the soup version.
‘Dry Curry Stir Fried Chicken Rice aka Kam Hiong Chicken’ Very fragrance and filled stir fried to the right condition, yet we felt that it would taste even better with seafood like sotongz or ikan pari. RM6.90
When you are sick, something mild in taste yet smooth for your taste bud, ‘Seafood Mushroom Porridge’ is the right choice. Filled with the sweetness of the seafood taste yet its like ‘chuk’ I could not resist it but its a bit salty in the end of your first few mouth. RM7.90
Many thanks to CK for helping me to arrange Penang Blogger’s to attend on this event and of course thanks to my buddy Andy for hosting us. Indeed it I was happy that manage to know some of the food bloggers from Penang that are Lingzie, Chris Lai, Mary Teo, Alan and Amanda, NKOTB
With most of the food are up on the stardard with the cheap pricing, a shop that I would highly recommend. One of the latest news I got from him was yesterday he told me that, there is one Malaysia artist had dine at his place which I have no idea also. I ask my friend and they said its quite a local celebrity from a radio station.

My friends from Indonesia came over to visit me, so as usual for night supper what I usually bring my friends go is Murni. I feel that the food is nice and the price is reasonable. One bad thing about here is, if you are very hungry, this would not be a place I would recommend as sometimes, have to wait extremely long for your food to arrive. There are times that I waited for an hour.

Surprisingly for that night, the food came pretty instant. Just order and came around 3 mins later. Which I also kacau the guy, saying that ‘ eh eh, this is the orang cancel order 1 iziit?’ he laugh and walk away. But the food is warm and hot. Just out from the kitchen. Told my friend that she was lucky tonite that the food serve so fast. Maybe knowing that, there are tourist s eating, so priority 1st.

So this round decided to try the ‘Roti Dragon’ which waited for around 15 minutes cost RM10.
I have never tried out this before but knowing that it is one of the famous item there but but but when I cut open, it is like chicken pie full with filling.

The taste is extremely good, the sauce taste is abit creamy, like mushroom soup, the slices of ham in there is a lot and huge, the chicken cubes and slices also a lot. It is like a mixture of mushroom soup and chicken pie to make it like this. The sauce on top of the skin is tomato puree which is to make their spaghetti bolognaise which goes perfectly well with the serve. The nan skin is soft and warm.

By just eating one of this, is enough to kill you off. We eat it till the very last bite. With the price tag on this dragon, I feel its pretty reasonable for such a huge dragon and also ingredient in it.
