Roast Duck

Browsing

A lot of my friends when saw me post up Karaoke in Taiwan in FB they asked me, Bok. .. are you okay or not? Go till so far you go Karaoke? Never sing before ah you? Heee, one of the reason that I choose to tag along with Pak is to see how their Karaoke place look like as every country have their own style, additional get to know more friends so that next round I do travel again to Taiwan (which is soon), it is more happening, with locals able to bring us and introduce me all the food that most foodie do not go. 😀 Then we head to NewCB Party KTV (星聚點西門館) .

It was on the second night that after sightseeing of Tamshui Fisherman’s Wraft, we hurried to XimenDing as we were late.

When we reach there, we thought we went to the wrong building, as it looks more like a cinema outlook rather than Karaoke but it turns out to be.

They have a classy hallway that makes it look like a hotel area rather than normal koraoke place which can be identified.

As this would be the big difference of the Sing-K place. Usually we have buffet including in our package that is situated directly outside but instead of buffet style, they are doing more like a food court style. You will be given some vouchures to utilise, if you finish the whole stack of vouchure then you can pay by money.

Varieties of food to choose ranges from Japanese, Local Taiwan Food, Hong Kong food and some Snacks.

karaoke (15)

The room filled with big leather couch, sound proof wall that plaster along with nice wall decoration is quite big that accomodate 10 of us with disco light hanging on the wall waiting to be turn on. There is a super clean toilet for us in it too.

For me, I don’t really go Sing-K as I am not a big fan of it as I don’t sing (which all my best friend knows about it) but the only place I enjoy my K session time is when I was studying in Melbourne that they follow Hong Kong style which means there are people singing, there are people ‘Chai Mui’ on another table and drinking at another table. This is what

I usually do, I take food and eat. . ..

Then when mood comes, invite friends to drink or challenge or play games.

karaoke (18)

Listen to people sing especially chinese songs, as I enjoy them alot, part of it I am half banana as I don know how to read but know how to speak so that makes me half. 😀

karaoke (19)

Go prank people got beaten up and seriously (Eva put her energy to pull it) and the after effect Pak had damage red ear. How I know? I also got pulled by her.

karaoke (20)

Then we camwhore all night long with da pimp Pak in the house. . . .

I just love how the way they set up the restaurant with traditional concept decorate floor with red carpet, dim orange yellow lights with chinese setting on the table.

Chef Lo is the man behind this great restaurant with his culinary skills and experience, the food and presentation is great~

Nikko (2)

‘?????? Boiled Garoupa Fillet, Poached Egg and Coriander Leaf Soup’

Is the dish that start off for the night, and seriously it was a unique soup base that I dine for the first time. The soup is clear yet flavourful. – Recommended

Nikko (3)

 One of the hidden piece fish garupa fish fillet had been boil so soft and dip it with a bit of soy sauce is simply delicious. I wish I had 2 bowls of this.

If you ask me where to hunt for food, one of the places or area I would recommend is Bandar Puteri, Puchong. There are a lot of restaurant here, but most of them come and go as the competitive level here is very high in for foodie like me, its good as there are a lot of choices but for business is bad as have to keep coming up with new promotions. Restaurant Brother Kuan.

One colleague of mine that she stay around the area that recommend we should come to this shop which is pretty good, without any hesitation, we directly head there as most of us don feel like eating at canteen for that day.

Brother Kuan

The place is simple, nice and cozy.

Brother Kuan (3)

Dishes in the menu is not many variety but mostly are recommended.

Brother Kuan (4)

With Ping Ping had dine here before, we leave the choise for her to choose.

Brother Kuan (5)

This is the starter of the day, that Karen and Kebbie bought from a auntie from the front. I love the young mango, its not very sour yet very sweet. Good to eat before meal.

Brother Kuan (6)

Although this look simple, but if you do come to this shop and dine, this would be a recommended dish by me, the ‘BBQ Pork’ had been roast till the outer layer is crispy, layer fats and meat are choose evenly and its just perfect.

Brother Kuan (7)

‘Hailam Chicken’ that something is simple and nice with soft tender meat and smooth chicken skin add on with some ginger is just as good as it is.

Brother Kuan (8)

Ahhh, this is my favorite of the day, ‘BBQ-Pork Omelette’ as not many people can fried an egg very aromatic that egg taste blends well with the bbq pork, onion and some vegies. I wish I had 2 of this. RM 6 Recommended~

Brother Kuan (9)

If you are looking for something clear soup to go along, this would not be a bad choice to go after. ‘Bayam with Superior Soup’ RM 8

Brother Kuan (10)

One of the unique taste of the day ‘Roast Duck with Herbal Sauce’ as I always eat roast duck but never with herbal sauce. The flaver blends in pretty good but do not expect the meat to be as aromatic that just roasted out but its another taste to enjoy. RM15

Brother Kuan (11)

‘Miss Fried Fish Paste’ @ RM 8, deep fried perfectly, that a home made fish paste feel is there.

Brother Kuan (12)

This happens to be another in demand dish as ‘La Chi Prawns’ was put down on the table, I was not fast enough as Kenji already stole one of the prawn as it looks too tempting. It is quite spicy (those who cannot eat spicy, please request to reduce it) and solid prawn meat that been fried along with the sauce and spiciness level is there just makes the prawn very good. RM25

Brother Kuan (13)

During the whole meal, the chef and another lady been observing me for very long time and curious of me why keep taking picture and not long after that the chef which is also the owner Chef Marcus walked over and ask us how is the food, do we enjoy and everything, after found out that I am a foodie, he is even more friendly, telling me that this shop is the first restaurant that offer cart steam rice which is more on health purpose as to go along with his dish, Chinese herbal. He indeed was very friendly as I did observe him, he walk and talk with customer before came over to my table.

Total bill came out with RM118 shared with 7 pax is very reasonable and with the quality served, its recommended~

Thought of eating Dim Sum for the past few days, then did a research on where to eat. Then finally book one of the restaurant at Renaissance Hotel for its buffet dim sum which quite a number of good review on that. Then suddenly 2 days b4 the eating spree my friend called me up got something cheaper ah..
Then again go do some research and come across this eat all you can buffet which is at Li Jin Restaurant at Pavilion.
When we reach there around 11.15 am there were quite alot ppl waiting outside. Then I went to go ask the lady for the reservation name and she said I have to wait till 11.30 am to be serve. Then never care and just stand outside and chat with my friends.

Why this restaurant was because they give such a promo which under my friends budget RM20.80++ for eat all you can which most of them agreed and good thing was included weekends. Went to this eating spree with 10 ppl. They have 2 session for this which is the first batch is 10.30 am – 12.30 am and 12.30 am – 2.30 pm. We thought of going for the 2nd session as Brunch. 😀

While on the way walking in, they have the open concept of the open kitchen and as always the way steaming the tim sum always look tempting. The taste of it NO IDEA.

As I read a few food blogger, they mention that the roast duck here is highly recommended but never find a review on the tim sum. Will go hunt for its duck next visit~

They have quite a classy interior from inside out. Sure a pretty nice place to dine for tim sum with such a pricing.

While we were seated and this is the first cart that reach our place. We were very hungry as previous nite drank too much and today a bit hang over.. so just hantam what we can. So told the lady, everything 2 in our table.

Including this cart.
After took all the tim sum we need and me as always hungry as ever and go look around what I can curi. So found this area, with fried noodle and fried rice.
The ‘Fried Noodle’, is nice with the ‘wok’ taste is there and wasnt being too salty. A good dish to start off with
The ‘Fried Rice’ which is feel it taste much better than the noodle, as it is still warm compare to the noodle, and the best part is they are being pretty generous that alot of chinese sausage in there which makes the taste alot better.
Maybe I was still abit hang hang dei, and what ever I eat also nice.
Then the next area spotted next to it was ‘Century Porridge’ on the right, which I feel that the chuk is pretty dry up by putting into the slow cooker too long. Its a bit sticky whereby you throw it on the fly that fly over can even stick on the wall.
Next to it is theFu Chuk didnt manage to eat that cuz thought of leaving that for the last dish and ended up forgot to take.
This was the appetiser in front of the table. The very first infront of the pic I do not know what is that called but it taste sour and cold. Never really like it. The one of the right is call Leng Ngau(hokkien)suddenly forgot what its called in english. Taste not bad. Acceptable for me, which is cold, a bit salty and crunchy to its freshnesss and the one of the top left also do not know call what is it as what I know is to put all this in my mouth and taste it. It is cold dish also, a bit spicy and sour. Not my cup of tea.
So start my eating spree with this Siew Mai’ which is warm in the basket and yit lat lat.. so throw one into my mouth and feel like the siew mai is just out from the fridge and went into stim. The compactness is there but just taste normal.
Next is the Fung Chau aka Chicken Leg’ which I feel it taste weird. The skin taste like eating raw of its skin and a bit sticky too. After eating this plate,me and my friends never wanted for 2nd one.
Next is the Har Gau which is not really big in size. The prawn is not really big and the meat in there is okay and the skin is not too thick. Nothing taste special about this like some of other normal kopitiam style you can get.
Follow by my favourite ‘Char Siew Pau that will never miss in my tim sum eating spree. But dissapointedly, the feeling that it give me was the pau feels like not properly stim which the other side is hot and the skin is peeling and the other side is like just ngam ngam. The taste of it, don really like the sauce and the mince meet in there not small enough.
From top left to right:

Fish Ball
: Not a fan of that but just don taste nice.

Pai
Kuat
: Just taste so so, as its quite oily and the fats in the meat is too much.
The one on the bottom left taste nice, the skin is a bit crispy and the filling in there mix with chili sauce just ngam ngam nice to put into mouth
Siew Mai: which is another version from the up one, and thinks that this 1 taste much better. The compactness of the meat is there, and the feeling of eating char siew although not the best but no comment.
When the cart came by with this ‘Hong Kong Chee Cheong Fun’ then also ask for 2 each. Compare this 2, the prawn 1 taste much nicer compare to the char siew. The char siew the piece of meat is there and the taste is just not there. Feels like missing something in it and we cant really get what it lacked off. For the prawns, it taste better as the taste had mix in with the cheong fun. Eating with the chili given is an extra.

Loh
Pak Kou
: one of the dish which I feel its nice there, its soft, with a bit of peanut fragrance and ngam ngam pan fried it.
the one on the top right, taste so so only, as fried to perfection but I feel like eating more flour than eating the base.
ThePopiah fried too long and its too crispy which makes it a bit hard to bite. Nothing special.
The Crabstick I would called it. Taste not bad, fried to perfection and the filling in there carries the tatse of the crab. Eat with mayo would be nice.
The best part of all I have been waiting and we ate till around 2.30 already. As we chatted the whole way through more than eating. Of course the deserts. The one of the top left do not know what is nice but one of the girl that serve our table, she keeps coming back happily to serve us and told me that since I like to eat desert as I keep asking her, then she bring me this.
Seriously, it taste very very very nice, inside is filled with some duck salty egg, abit of jagung taste, its soft on the outside and hot on the inside and its my recommendation for this dish over here.
As I read the review of the ‘Egg Tart’ not to be miss, which I feel it taste okay as the crust is crispy, the middle cream of it is to sweet and nice. The filling in it is just ngam ngam never too much nor too little.

The last one, taste pretty good also as it is filled with a bit kaya and ended up I wanted to request for more they told me its already finish and pass me the last 1 pack of it. SO DOWN. At the end of the meal onli get to know eat nice nice food.

After eating everything and ready to go surely we ask for our bill. The bills come out to a total of RM29 per pax which we were like har..y so ex and saw in the menu, like HK ppl doing business, added up the 3 cold dish in front of us cost RM5 each, then the towel, the tea and some other little bits and piece. Found it quite expensive for around RM29 each with the food quality and rather add some extra money to go Renaissance and enjoy the food but never try never know. Wont be considering going back at the moment.
