Oh well, the next day friend invited me over to check out the most famous kopitiam known as Oriental Kopi in Bandar Puteri, Puchong. I was told that this is currently the most crazy queue happening in Bandar Puteri.

Just open its door about few months back, Oriental Kopi 华阳 first outlet in Selangor had make an instant impact to the neighborhood.

Love the ambiance of this place. It is like the modern atas classic of the 70’s and in love with their song play list. All the classic song from Leslie Chung and Terresa Teng those era.

oriental kopi famous egg tart

Their egg tart is no joke. I see people carrying bags and stacks of egg tart.. No wonder the place is so pack! Their egg tart also made it into Malaysia Book of records with thickest crust as 6mm / 128 layers (if i remember correctly)

here comes my breakfast!

white coffee

I was told to try their Signature Oriental Kopi @ RM 7.80 , Hainanese cham and Roasted white coffee. Among the 3 I would recommend to go for Oriental kopi and also Hainanese cham. This 2 got different is more prominent.

oriental kopi nasi lemak

For mains, we order Nasi lemak, normal @ RM 5.90/ Signature Nasi Lemak Fried Chicken @ RM 14.90 which is serve with a huge drum stick, freshly fried as the skin is crispy and pack with mild spices, fragrant rice and with perfectly down up sunny side up. Sambal is abit mild spicy but just nice for morning doze for me. This would be one of my recommended dish.

Chicken Hor Fun @ RM 13.90

oriental kopi mee siam

Oriental Fried Chicken Meat Mee Siam @ RM 12.90 is decently good too. This is above my expectation. Comes with a few chicken strips which I find it a bit generous, and I only wish that the mee hoon portion is slightly more. Mee hoon is cook nicely, pack with some siam spices which it needs to give the umph. Once you squeeze the lime onto the chicken and mee hoon then it is another level of taste.

oriental kopi char koey teow

Penang Char Koey Teow @ RM 13.90 is not bad.

butter kaya toast

for breakfast, I enjoy their Kaya Butter Toast ias it is quite generous with butter to my liking.  Nothing to shout about but that’s how I like my toast with thicker butter.

hong kong polo bun

Apparently Polo bun is their signature and it is slightly different compare to the ones I had. It is not bad, cuz this is freshly baked as the crust on the top is still crusty, serve with slices of butter and you can choose the topping with condense milk or honey. I find that Condense milk suits my liking more.

Oriental Honey Polo Bun @ RM 6.90 

oriental kopi egg tart

their Malaysian Book of Records Egg TART!!!!!!! just look at the flowery crust. there are comparison from this shop and another shop nearby. I would say it is totally different. I like this texture more from inside is soft and fragrant. Flaky with 128 layers, yet abit like croissant on the side . Kinda interesting for me. I whack 2 tart at one go.  I would recommend you to order this too when you are in this shop.

At times we are just too lazy to drive all the way to KL for certain occasions and just wish to find some where near for nice dining. MONTT Restaurant & Bar located in Puchong Utama is one of a restaurant and bar that you can look forward to.

Mont (1)

Ambiance that had been done up tastefully luxury for Puchong neigbourhood. Ample of parking space and Valet available for those of you whom wish to park right at the door step.

Mont (2)

A restaurant that seperates into a few sections, with ground floor as the dining area, secnd floor as the cigar and wine, and 3rd floor is their private function rooms or private dining.

Variety of wine that could be pick up here and there are a bottle of wine from Spain that is exclusively bottled for them. Limited quantity available only.

For lunch today, we are tasting off with food pairing. Starting off with Sake Echigozakura Nihonshu Love this sake as it is easy to drink, and definitely pairs well with Chilled Capellini .Bring up the light taste of mild bursting salty fish roe and balance up truffle oil to give a nice floral finishing.

Mont (8)

Mont (9)

Grill tiger prawn is fresh and paired with Misha’s Vineyard – Riesling. The acidic lemon onto the grill prawn bring up the gril prawn taste and end with a nice smooth chilled reisling. White and seafood, never goes wrong.

Mont (10)

This Roasted Half Young Chicken  is done to perfection. Sous Vide the chicken for a few hours, then put into slow grill in oven had made the chicken juicy inside out. Pairing with paired with Dogajolo Toscano Rosso IGT (Italy) which give you a hint of sourness from red balance off the juicy chicken.

Mont (11)

Lets head to something more pungent – Dukkah Spiced Lamb Rib. This is the limited edition wine that specially bottled for Montt Restaurant – Corona de Aragon Reserva Especial 2014 as each bottle of wine are labled with numbers. The wine need to breath for a while or at least 20-30 minutes as the difference of taste is quite prominent. First sip is like shiraz, mild with end spicy note. However if breath long enough, it had become a nice dry wine, that give you smooth body finishing.  Paired with their chef special pork ribs.

Balance it off with prata bread, sour cream and apple salad. A great combination of flavour.

For dessert fans, their dessert would be their star highlight. Nice craft and well presented. Peanut Butter Mascarpone mould to perfection, as for it to hold in such sphere shape, ingredient and temperate must be right. If not the whole dessert will just fall apart. Love the creaminess, bitter and end alcohol taste of this. Tiramisu fans, this is a must order item.

Mont (14)

Mont (15)

Their Strawberry Lychee mousse is pretty impressive too. Look at the temper of white chocolate and twirl. That needs skills. A cup that is carefully assemble and inside of it is soft, and slightly wobbly. By looking at it, you knew that it is build from scratch and it is freshly made.

Mont (16)

Those of you hate to travel all the way down to KL yet want to dine and drink in piece, Montt Restaurant and Bar would be one of a good options for you Puchong Folks. Could be one of your destination for a wine bar in Puchong too.

After heavy drinking a night before, on the  next day, Foo Hing Dim Sum is one of the recommendation to hunt for dimsum. Apparently that, my friend, May told me Fong Hing Dim Sum is her favourite place for dim sum and currently one of the famous dim sum place in Bandar Puteri,Puchong.

Foo Hing Dim Sum (1)

Foo Hing Dim Sum (2)

Foo Hing Dim Sum (3)

I am surprise on the place is pack with people and to take number to queue for a table.

Foo Hing Dim Sum (4)

There are tons of tarts and only was told they are very famous for their Portuguese egg tart.

Foo Hing Dim Sum (5)

Menu seems very direct and simple and felt that there are limited choices.

Foo Hing Dim Sum (6)

Best of all is that the server will still bring a tray of items for you to choose, instead of the typical cart moving around. Still alright as it is definitely much better than self service.

Foo Hing Dim Sum (7)

Foo Hing Dim Sum (8)

This is Foo Hing’s signature Macau style Portuguese egg tarts @ RM2.50 per piece. Look at the texture and crust at the side that you can still see layers of crips. Soft and fragrant in the middle and it is worth to take away. A dessert must have after your dim sum – Recommended! 

Foo Hing Dim Sum (12)

The rest are not too bad as their chicken feet is good, pack with flavour and soft to my liking, Siew mai, pai kuat, xiao long bao is good.

Foo Hing Dim Sum (9)

Not a big fan of this but the crust do have buttery taste which is not too bad. Char siew filling in there is slightly dry for me.

Foo Hing Dim Sum (13)

Foo Hing Dim Sum (11)

Not the best dim sum place as my expectation kinda different but then overall it is a place that can pay a visit as the pricing is affordable, not over price and ingredient seems decent. Will I be back? I dont mind to come back again.

I still remember a few years ago when Donutes open its door to public  back in 2013 that marks them the first outlet in Malaysia, they were on the hype as one of a bakery cafe that started off with 24 hours cafe operational and won many of the neighborhood crowd to hang around there. Only then I realise it is actually a Taiwanese brand.

Donutes (2)

Donuts established in the year of 1989 in Gao Xiong, Taipei, where they started as a shop specialized in bread and cakes, running business traditionally. Time flyes as they coupe with the modernism demand where change of concept to suits on consumer needs had lead them to be one of the leading brand for Taiwan to spread its week across 10 different countries.

Donutes (3)

There are variety of breads to choose from and all looks good. Besides that, there are cookies and cakes too.

Currently, one of the newest creation is their Lava Croissant.  Besides this ,their new signature of Lava Salted Egg Cheese Tart is a bomb. @ RM 6.90 – filled with mousse-like cream cheese and nice pastry side is a good combination with a nice cuppa that will be launching from 6th May, 10 am onwards.

*** Currently this product is only available in Donutes Puchong Jaya Outlet only.

Donutes (10)

Another of my favourite is their Butter bread. Fragrant, soft and fluffy.

Donutes (11)

One of their best seller is Polo Bun. Slightly different from Hong Kong version but it is still good enough to pair along with their Sun Moon Lake Tea.

Donutes (12)

Peanut Donut is also a new item, where it is sprinkle with mixture of peanut dusk.

I have not been to Bandar Puteri for quite a while and in this area it is indeed food heaven. If you head to another the side opposite Giant, that area now is pretty well known for steamboat or Puchong Steamboat zone. You will find variety of steamboat available here. One of the latest addition which is unique by its own is Ruk Mookata which is a Thai infusion steamboat. Ruk means love and translate to love Thai BBQ. Best of all this outlet is a buffet version and offering at RM 43.80nett for Eat all you can.

The main catch is – they are using classic charcoal steamboat bbq pit.

Ruk Mookata (4)

Guest will be given a glass of their Signature Thai Green Tea and I find it is pretty good. Milky enough and fragrant of green tea is mild is what exactly I tasted when I was in Bangkok.

Ruk Mookata (5)

Find it quite interesting for such a place that the seating space is quite spacious and they do have indoor and outdoor seating area.

 

Ruk Mookata (7)

Ruk Mookata (6)

Find that their offering is quite large too for such a price tag as ranging from drinks, to some solid food ready for you if you are too hungry which allow you to build some foundation in your stomach.

Ruk Mookata (8)

Ruk Mookata (9)

They have huge variety of frozen balls which I love it.

Ruk Mookata (10)

with fresh offerings like vegetable and others too.

Ruk Mookata (11)

Even I am surprise on the offering that they offer 2 types of prawns, 2 types of scallops and vareity of shell items which I think is worth it.

Ruk Mookata (12)

Ruk Mookata (13)

Ruk Mookata (14)

At the condiments counter, do ask for advise from the staff on the mixing as they do have their house special mix for meat bbq dip.

Ruk Mookata (15)

Ruk Mookata (16)

Also find it interesting as believe this would be the first Buffet place that offer Thai instant noodle as part of their offerings which is direct import from Thailand.

Ruk Mookata (17)

There are 2 soup base for this Thai BBQ Pit. One is their Original Clear soup base and also Tomyum Soup base. Clear soup base is indeed a great base to choose where it is not too salty, clear enough to add on with all the seafood that create strong solid taste after cooking a few rounds of the ingredients.

Tom yum soup base started of nice where it is sour enough to our liking as there are only a hint of spiciness. Ways to work on spicy is you can add in chili at the condiment counter. As the more you cook, the soup base will get sourish end. Was advise by the manager that we can add in clear soup as one of the option.

Ruk Mookata (18)

Ruk Mookata (2)

This is what we pick up for 4 of us.

Ruk Mookata (19)

These slice meat is not available at the forzen counter where you have to place order through a mini paper that is available at your table. Variety of meat seasoning is available from pork, lamb, chicken and beef. Bak Kua is da bomb as we add in another plate with additional RM 8.90 per plate. Worth it as it pairs well with our Chang Beer.

Ruk Mookata (20)

Ruk Mookata (22)

for classic meat, the manager teach us by dipping it through raw egg and bbq it on the top as it gives you the smoothness of texture. There are some customer liking it and there are not. For me I prefer it classic with their special dipping sauce, dip into it and bbq it on the top. Gives you a nice sourish taste and nicer aroma.

Ruk Mookata (21)

 

Ruk Mookata (23)

Soft drinks are additonal order and also it is from Thai along with their Ice cream too. Best choice is to hit their Lime Flavour.

Ruk Mookata (24)

 

Ruk Mookata (25)

This is the  mini docket that is place on your table for meat slices ordering and there are additional order. There are some ingredients which is addtional charges which we find it quite reasonable.

This place is only 2 weeks old and believe they have a few improvement to build up as we did speak to the manager where currently they are gathering feedback. For RM 43.80nett and kids RM 20nett , children below (100cm-140cm) eat for free. I find it quite a good bargain.

Whenver we travel, we always look for oversea chocolate to buy back as a souvenir. However on my latest discovery, there is a hidden gem that really hidden in one of a corner a row of unoccupied shop, then you will stumble upon Love18 Chocolatier Cafe. A local homemade chocolate that I truly impress on their quality ingredients that they are using and the taste is amazing.

They use only fresh, carefully selected and uniquely balanced regional and seasonal ingredients in our products, combined with premium grade chocolates imported from France (Valrhona) and Belgian (Callebaut).

Love 18 (1)

It is a family run business that have a strong passion in creating nice chocolate for their love ones. Started off in their home kitchen, to cater for family and friends, throughout the year with recommendations from word of mouth grew to where they are today.

Love 18 (2)

Love 18 (4)

For last round, attended their chocolate tasting workshop and this is the first time, I get to sample so many different types of chocolate from cheap ingredient to expensive made premium version.

Love 18 (5)

Right before the work shop start, we started off with some sampling.

Love 18 (7)

Love 18 (6)

Then we were given a sample box of chocolate that we will be tasting from different types of chocoate by using our palate to identify which is our prefrence, from milk, dark, white and valrhona chocolate. My taste bud told me I am a Valrhona chocolate lover yet not too much of a dark chocolate person where 65-75% of it is perfect to me. All I can think of, enjoying red wine with this is perfect!

Love 18 (8)

Then we get a tour in their chocolate cold room production area, where got a chance to see thru their chocolate making process.
