By using that unit, I will leave it to your imagination how the Kuzi chicken will looks like after that. . I can tell you that its simple aromatic, gravy is not too thick nor spicy that even your kids and shower it into their rice and eat. I am amazed that the chicken is perfectly soft. .

Not only that, the NAsi Briyani Gam is awesome. Something for you to cook at home and its pretty easy . .

Next to prepare another quick simple dessert with few functions to play with is their The Philips Soya Bean Maker to cook Green Bean dessert.

The result came out like that. I would advise that cutting the sugar at least half, so it would not be too sweet. At the end, if you find that the green bean is slightly too thick, just add on some water then its ready to serve. Just like any other dessert shop we can get. Pretty good.

Last item that I always dream on having is air fryer. Its always one of the techonology that kept me very curious for quite a while, using air to fried stuff. One of the most recent thing I learn about Philip Airfryer, it can also Bake~ cool yah, not only can fried all your favourite items, fish, nuggets and other stuff you always prefer. A small unit and easy to keep. Price about RM 1199. . .

Our effect of chocolate mud slice is not bad though, as our ingredient did not stir thoroughly then, after baking out it came out slightly loose in side or abit airy. . For our own consumption, sure it pass. . hehe

As time pass by, more and more of my friends are venturing into F&B which is a good thing, that I can get to enjoy many different food. One of the latest addtion to the list is my best friend opening a Nyonya food at Pulau Tikus. Location is not hard to find as it is located directly opposite Lanchia Holdings (2nd hand car reseller) – Burma Road.

home chef garden (1)

Restaurant Homes Chef Garden – Famous Traditional Chinese Home’s Recipes by the name itself already know its a homecook style version which is my friend’s mom is the main chef behind the whole cooking. Her mom inherit the recepi from the family and pass down and now, we are able to enjoy good home cook food mostly on nyonya style. Manage to pop by on my last trip back to Penang as this outlet just operated less than a month and already gaining popularity to family crowd.

Operating two shoplot and that creates ample of dining space and for families that wanted to have slightly more private section, the restaurant do offer two table right at the top corner.

Selection and price in here are pretty decent. As my friend is working on the day, so we skip the menu and ask her to shower us her best dish, and she scolded me, nearly everything is good as its homecook version. I was like *ohhh then I requested what is best for the day.

home chef garden (5)

Here it comes with our first dish. Tophat (Pai Tee) @ RM 4.80. Add on with jiu hu char top with crispy garlic and freshly fried base. Eat it while is fresh as I did leave my second one for quite a while, as its not crips anymore, become sligtly soggy after the jiu hu char create some water in it. I munch the whole thing in one bite and taste good, best of all must add on the sambal to add in extra kick.

Inchi Kabin @ RM 17

home chef garden (7)

Typical Jiu Hu Char ingredients must be finely slice or chop and not over cook yet can still bite on the sengkuang and moist upon serving. Just as how I like it.  RM 18

home chef garden (8)

Pork lover must not miss this. Too Kha Chor cook to perfection that the fats and meat are soft and juicy yet the taste of it is awesome. Slightly strong in vinegar taste yet pair it well with my rice. Highly recommended! @ RM 15

home chef garden (9)

I used to love this alot as I cant take too much of it as I am allergy to the combination. Kiam Chai Ark (salted vegie Duck soup) its a very well balance soup, with sourish taste, slightly pepper spicy and soup is strong in salted vegie taste. Love it. @ RM 17

home chef garden (10)

Too Thor Thng Penang version is more towards white pepper spicy as she added in small little pepper balls to cook along, with pork to make the soup taste sweet and too thor is wash clean without the strong musk taste. Dipping with some soy sauce and chew it just nice. @ RM 15

home chef garden (11)

Prawn Coconut Milk is something new to me, shower with creamy coconut gravy and fresh chewy prawns with bitter gourd taste is just unique and good. @ RM 15

home chef garden (12)

Steam Fish is one of the fast moving product on the meal as the soup base is sourish enough to make the girls take more and fine chopping garlic cook along and the fish is fresh. @ RM 38

home chef garden (13)

Kai Lan with Salted fish @ RM 14

home chef garden (14)

I don really like to eat this desert but I must rate it as Super star of the desert is this Bur Bur Cha Cha/Bubur chacha. One of the best I have come across so far, not too creamy in coconut taste yet  ingredients like taro, sweet potato, carrot and some other items being boil till its near soft. Perfect and its cook fresh on every dining sessions with limited quantity.

If you do plan to dine there, remember to call in and reserve x amount of bowls you need. We were lucky as these were the last 2 bowls. As she have many orders specially to take away for this desert only. – Highly Recommended!

home chef garden (15)

Here we are all of us enjoying a great meal at my friends place. Total bill came out about RM 180 which is reasonable.

If you are lazy to cook and plan to enjoy home cook food, definitely here is one of the place to recommend.

Early morning what do you usually have for your breakfast? Western? Local cuisine? It had been a while since I last visited this place, which is old school and classic. Its not more than this famous Indian cuisine that had been operating here for more than 10 years. Roti Canai Transfer road is also known as one of a landmark to me and my friends.

I could not even can remember when was the last time I came here, it was many many years back.

transfer road (1)

I have always wanted to drop by but most of the time I could not wake up. At last was force to wake up by Ken and manage to come by this place.

transfer road (2)

On the tray itself, roti canai is being fried non stop as many people are waiting and taking away too.

All the gravy are serve pippin hot and it was just perfect that the morning itself it was morning and just the right things to pair after.

transfer road (8)

Dining experience here is very different compare to other places as you have to squeeze in this pretty tight spot to have your seat. With much more seating, canteen style pretty much reminds me of primary school days.

Every one just sit in single line and face the road yet we enjoy the view of the busy chef preparing all the pipping hot roti canai.

transfer road (9)

What we usually order a piece of beef in this special gravy with their very own recepi, do not deceive by the fiery red curry as its not too spicy yet aromatic with spices.

Love mine with lots of extra gravy and another item that you shall not miss is their season onions to pinkish colour. A bit sweet in taste which is their signature item here.

Pass here many times, whenever I dine nearby and there is this rustic kopitiam that always draw my attention that tug in the middle of the whole stretch of shop lot. It does not look like a place fully pack with people just that the ambiance and a few chicken that hanging right outside the shop always have the urge to make me go in. You will be suprise on Restaurant Soo Kee.

soo kee (1)

After Google out about this place only realise that they serve pretty authentic Ipoh koey Teow Soup that many of my boss like it also, as its more like a neighbourhood business. According to our boss, this place is one that serve authentic recepi from the family compare to the others available and do not really use MSG in the food, that’s how he is one of the regular there as he is sensitive towards MSG. As he told us, this place is also run by the whole family. .

soo kee (2)

What is written on the stall are all their signature.

soo kee (3)

Just look at this guy how he eat with his expression . . priceless. . 😀

soo kee (4)

One of the signature Prawn Wantan that serve in a bowl with easily there are 8 pieces along. Love the texture of the wantan as its not too solid yet can chew the whole prawn yet not too big. Soup base is a bit strong with peppery as if it is slightly less then would be just nice.

soo kee (5)

When the Steam Chicken is serve, it look so silky smooth and the special sauce that they have is just aromatic that trails through my nose. Undenieable that the first bite of the chicken automate me continuous to pick up 2nd piece, 3rd pieces as one of the smoothest chicken that I have come accross, best of all, its boneless. Every piece can just smack right into your mouth and usually chicken breast part is pretty dry and solid, as I guess Soo Kee have their own style of making it juicy yet smooth.

After check back my pictures only I realise that I forgot to take picture on the smooth koey teow soup. Its actually like you go MacD ordering a set, its the same as Soo Kee that when you come here you need to order their signature set that serve Steam Chicken, Wantan and Koey Teow Soup then that’s the perfect combo of all for this shop.

If you are asking me are they the best, I have no idea. I can say one of the best steam chicken that I have come accross, surely will come back again as its pretty near my office.

How many of you are a frequent diners at Northen Beach Cafe? If you do, I am pretty sure you guys know this little stall called La France tug in the middle of the coffee shop, that serve nice French Food. Well, over the time they have gain their reputation and now they have grown by moving to a new premises since last year to this heritage front corner unit behind Northam Hotel.

La France (1)

By operating on the corner unit of the junction, its pretty hard not to miss this beutified outlet with huge trees located right at the outlet. Ample parking around the area especially you can park opposite with RM2 per entry car park instead of taking risk to be park at the road side and got fine from the MPPP.

La France (2)

Actually this place is own by my best friend’s sister and we have decided to dine there over the weekend for lunch, since they had been serving pretty good food previously, most of their recepi is design by themselves and head more towards homecook style. Like the ambiance of the cafe, with a bit of contemporary style yet the overall cafe look and feel is there.

La France (3)

If you are a smoker, you can be seated outside too, but cause of our hot weather, I prefer to stay in. 😀

La France (4)

As you walked towards back, they have like a mini bar stool garden concept which is nice to be seated at night. Cozy place . .

La France (5)

To kick start with our late Brunch, so a coffee is a must for some of us and Cafe Latte being serve and by looking at the smooth froth, know that it would be a great coffee.

La France (6)

Iced Latte was being order next, as best to order less ice, if not it will dilute the taste of it

La France (7)

Love my simple cup of Ice Lemon tea, with strong flavour of tea and hint of sourish lemon at the end.

La France (8)

We do not know what we are ordering as we have ask my friend’s sister to serve us what is the best. 😀

I think this would be Albacore (French Croissant with Tuna, Cheeze and salad). Upon serving, I thought  – oh no~ why is my croissant is burnt on the top, thought it would not have made my day, but to my surprise it turns out to be super tasty with the style of it and the cheeze and tuna are perfectly match and I before I manage to cut into 3 pieces, it was instantly gone!

La France (11)

Jambon BeurreFrench Croissant with Ham, butter and Salad

Another toast delight that make our day with ham carefully friend just a bit and inserted in between the bread.

La France (9)

Next up is Croque Madame (Ham & Cheeze with Egg) in Ciabatta bread. Finely toasted which it is very simple yet just delicious.

La France (10)

The super star of the day is this  Pork Sausage in Cabiatta bread (don really know what is the actual name) that apparently only serve during dinner time! Pork sausage is just wonderfully friend and aroma ooze out from the sausage is just irresistible. – highly Recommended!

La France (12)

Aglio Olio with Extra Virgin Olive Oil @ RM9.00 is a very simple dish with lots of olive oil, olives and freshly cut tomato to cook along. Spegetthi is al dante and that Tatt whack half portion of it and left a bit for us to share! Pretty good too. .

Overall, this shop certainly serve pretty good toast if you are looking on healthy options. Other range like Speghetti as my thought, if they can cook a normal Aglio Olio tasty the rest should not be a problem!  Food price is pretty affordable which is not overly price.

Service wise I have no comment cuz its different for all of us and what I have been told and read thru other blogs, you might just received it uniquely. 🙂

Highly Recommended place~

How many of you actually dine before Mexican food as not to mention those commercialize  ones, as there is one that serve near authentic Mexician food which is Frontera Sol of Mexico that smack right in the heart of Jaya One. One of the few outlets that hard to miss if you are around the area.

What is in the house today is their Christmas menu, as you might think its early but nope, its just about a month away where is just nice you start to offer Christmas menu.

Frontera (1)

Frontera (2)

Frontera (3)

its a place that normal pack with families and friend to come by to get their favorite dish.

For their Christmas menu, they are preparing the food to be as authentic as possible, that will differ in individual taste.

Frontera (4)

One of the thing that I sip non stop is this Watermelon Agua Fresca – Non Alchohol drink, that had a bit of soda, sweet watermelon and mild lime taste as the end is just thirst quenching.

Frontera (8)

Next, head to the  most classic drink of all is this 1919 Sangria an Alcoholic drink origins from Spain and, different restaurant,pub and bar prepare this drink differently, what you taste here might not be the same as other outlet as they have their own recepi on creating it.

Frontera (5)

Traditional Tamales (Choice of chicken / Beef)

Frontera (6)

Find that this is the Bak Chang in Mexician version. Like sticky rice, that have lots of ingredient inside and the taste is quite different but rich in ingredient.

Frontera (7)

Roasted Butternut Squah Soup With Sage Pesto, as after I finish the whole plate, as I thought it was pumpkin soup and I am a bit suprise that its not. It is butternut, anyway, I still enjoy the soup.

Frontera (9)

Mesquite Smoked Turkey with Broccoli Florets Topped with Chili Con Queso

Frontera (10)

This is one of the main star for the night that, when ask, do you prefer fish or Turkey. Instantly 90% of them order turkey, as during Christmas period, we have been taught from small is that Christmas = Turkey (must have dish). Turkey meat was well marinated, soft and prefect pair with gravy and the best of all to pair along that you must not miss is the pinkish Cranberry Chipotle Relish (a bit sour sweet and very unique in taste, I sure do not mind to have more of that), pair along with sweet potato, yes its sweet potato not meatloaf.

Frontera (11)

Since every one opted for the Turkey, so I try out their Veracruz-style Fillet of Red Snapper with mexican rice & sonora vegetables. Usually, I do not take fish and its quite beyond my expectation that the fish is good, soft fish meat and the gravy is abit sour and you eat along with jalapeno which is not too spicy, that balance up. After effect will make your tongue a bit numb. 😀

Peach Tres Leches Cake
