I did ask him before, or not only me, why come back to Malaysia since you are doing so well in overseas. He answered, because he is a Malaysians and still his home ground. He is proud to bring back this concept. Chef Yama specialties are sauces. He always mention would love the diners to enjoy same ingredient but different taste.

Food in here is great and it will give you another dimension of what to taste in sushi. The only thing is you might love it or don so like it as in the chef special menu, its much drench with sauce, there is where the sushi/sashimi boat come in handy, to tone down the taste. My preference for those are:

Waikiki Roll, Volcano Roll, Art of Maki to kick start off with . .
If you are more adventure with your sushi, then I would highly recommend this place to try out.

Right after Christmas what is next festive season we have in line? Thaipusam will be kicking off first then follow by Chinese New Year. I am sure many of you arleady see those big malls are busy preparing decorations for you guys to photoshoot for Toh Yuen.

Not only that, all F&B, restaurants are all busy preparing special menu for all of us out there. Toh Yuen at PJ Hilton is coming up with Fortune Menu, Happiness Menu, Longevity Menu and Propensity Menu, that is priced at RM988++, RM1188++, RM1388 and RM1688++ respectively for each table of 10 pax.

PJ Hilton (1)

Deluxe Salmon & Seaweed Yee Sang with Mixed Fruits

PJ Hilton (3)

Lou Sang in Chinese Tradition is a must which signify toss of luck, health and prosperity. Not only that, that salmon fish is use to symbolize life and longevity.

PJ Hilton (4)

The sauce are slightly sour end with sweet taste of mango, pineapple and dragon fruit. Something which is easy to start off with as most of the restaurant have different sauces for Yee Sang.

PJ Hilton (5)

When the waiter open up the cover of the pot of Braised Baby Abalone with Dried Seafood Soup, I was like wahhhh, so rich in ingredient yet its double boil. Something to look for and the light smell of it entrails my nose that I just cant wait to get a sip of it.

PJ Hilton (7)

Look at the ingredient that they have, with huge abalone dried scallops,  fish maw, herbs and black chicken.

PJ Hilton (6)

A soup that truly come to my liking that is clear yet aromatic.

PJ Hilton (8)

Braised Sea Cucumber with Mixed Mushrooms and Sun-dried Scallops. A bowl of rice is needed for this. Top with gravy on top of it and just pairs well with broccoli was boil well not too soft and sea cucumber is soft enough.

PJ Hilton (9)

Half Half… Roast Chicken, Smoked Duck with Dragonfruit Sauce and Vegetable Crackers. Smoked duck is aromatic and very well prepare that the dragonfruit dressing just add a simple and light taste of it yet smock duck taste still there. Its a dish that shall not miss and roast chicken I just love the skin.

PJ Hilton (10)

when I look at the menu, this dish definitely caught my attention, especially anything in cod, I would put extra attention cuz I just love cod. Deep Fried Canadian Cod with Honey Sauce comes with huge cube of fresh cod and fried well on the outer layer with cod meat is warm inside, that pairs well with the sauce. I didnt enjoy it slowly, I put in the whole cube into my mouth and let it burst with flavour.

PJ Hilton (11)

Sauteed Fresh Sea Prawns with Wasabi Mayo and “Sakura Denbu” is nearly juicy and I just wish I have extra wasabi mayo to dip on, then it would have been another perfect dish.

PJ Hilton (12)

By the time reach this dish we were already surrendering, it looks little but its actually very filling. Then Steamed Glutinous Rice with Sun-fried Oysters, Salted Egg Yolk and Chicken Paste was well prepare and the colour of it already attracted us. At first the girls next to me was planing come lets take one and share 3 portion ended up the take 1 each. Its good, filled with flavour of the leave and salted egg that makes the extra kick of it. Glutinous rice was well cook and steam that just makes it a perfect ending.

Deep Fried Nian Gao with Yam

Hilton Ice Cream Cake

Many of the modern Chinese family do not really cook at home any more for reunion dinner and surely this is one of the restaurant to consider.

On the 6th Day which is another shopping day request by the Girls, so we cancel all our sightseeing and spend our time mostly in the prime area for malls and the first stop for the day was MBK mall that we spend 5 hours there, from 10am – 3pm.. So walk around as everyone is very hungry and and saw this irresistible deal. Eat all you Can at ShabuShi Restaurant.

Shabu shi (1)

Had a quick breakfast in the morning and as all of them shop till forgot the time and stomach start growling, all of us start to hunt for food till we come over to this floor on the exit side we saw this sign – EAT all you CAn buffet.. every one say..go eat this one, damm hungry.. cow also can eat.. So we went in, and was request to use the front entrance. . .

Shabu shi (2)

Shabushi is a Restaurant offering Japanese Shabu shabu and Sushi for customers to enjoy at a very cheap rate I would say.

When we reach the front entrance, we were like OMG..so many ppl..siau eh~ and took our number, was told to wait 1 hour to come back, so we went to continue shopping and came back an hour after that.

Shabu shi (3)

Its a crowd mixture and one of the main thing that attracted so many people was the price of the buffet which is quite cheap. If I am not mistaken it is about 250 bhat nett per pax (if I remember it correctly) with given 90min/120 mins to dine.

Shabu shi (4)

We storm into the place and quickly place all our things on the table and start to attack on the food as given such a short time frame.

Shabu shi (5)

They have sushi bar counter seating or group seating with conveyor belt offering all fresh steamboat ingredients.

Shabu shi (8)

Many types of drinks available. . .they also have desert corner which I forgot to took a picture of it. .

Shabu shi (16)

Shabu shi (17)

This piece of meat is good with marinated sauce and corn in it. .

Shabu shi (18)

This is how pack our table is. . . The best part is on the conveyor belt, the chef was standing there and we were the last table on the corner and whenever he put new ingredients, we took all of it and till a certain time, he got piss off cuz other customer could not enjoy it and he went to the front to put all the new ingredient…kekekek~

Shabu shi (19)

This is how we eat our steamboat with Malaysian Culture and every one that walk pass by our table, look at us like dinosaur, as our eating steamboat habit is definately different compare to the rest of the people there.

Then after dining, Goft only told us that this is one of a famous Japanese steamboat buffet in the mall that attracted alot people go. If got chance when you are in Bangkok and would want to try something different, try out this Shabushi, value worth and the ingredients are all fresh and good! – REcommended!!

we had a very satisfying lunch that last us till late dinner. 😀

One thing is that you cannot compare the pricing and quality to Malaysia restaurant cuz they enjoy lesser taxes and that’s how Thailand industry grow so well ..

Nothing much to do on Chirstmas day, and hungry as well during dinner, so called up my buddies for dinner. Decided to go to The Curve to hunt for food. After every one do not know what to eat, the restaurant I choose got banned from them and we ended up here. Bubba Gump. All of us have not tried before. So AGREED by every one.


The interior is quite classic. Did tried to take a few pictures and the girl on the first table keep staring at my camera direction. Lol..Gotya..on Candid..!!! lol..

This is our table, which I find it very unique. Every table have different design. Definitely nice for photo.

We started off with a starter, Onion Rings, whereby I see alot of people ordering this. Definitely it is much nicer compare to A & W. It does not goes well with BBQ sauce but Goes very well with the other sauce(don know what sauce is that). We ended up get 2 more extra for that sauce. It cost RM14.90

Here we are, with our onion rings style. From head to body.

After left 2 of the rings, I decided to ask Jason to tried to mix it with cabbage and 2 of the sauce. RESULT: “It taste horrible”, that is what he said.

This is the first main dish which is Salmon & Vegie Skillet. Honestly, this food looks nice, the taste is not really good. 1st, the salmon overcook makes the whole fish abit solid. 2nd, the whole thing is salty, we think that the chef might had accidentally put alot. Thought of sugar but it is salt. The vegie is also over cooked. So the whole dish, we did not finish it. Left half. Price for this RM35.90. With the quality like dat, not worth it.
This is Bourbon Street Baramundi. The best among all those. Definitely highly recommended for those who loves fish or go to this restaurant. The fish is just so soft, feels like when you have a bite in your mouth, it is soft and smooth with the perfect sauce they mix with it. Just perfect. The mash potato is very nice. Milky and buttery taste. The fried pieces of potato mini strips, goes well along with the mash potato or just eat it like dat, its crunchy and a bit salty, but nice. It is price at RM29.90.
This dish is called Shrimper’s Heaven. I think they can rename it to Shrimper’s Hell because the shrimps that they serve in this basket is totally not fresh expect only one(6 o’clock shrimp). The rest all hopeless. When you bite in your mouth, it is not hard on the shrimps, it feels like ashes. GELI. Hate to eat shrimps with that kind of feeling. This dish is Totally BANNED and the most expensive of all RM44.90. (WTF) with this kind of little serving and quality. Totally disappointed.
Only 1 more left for this food comment. The chips are nice. Taste better than the shrimps.
The desert is called Mama’s Strawberry Shortcake. What we wanted to order all already finish which is their signature desert. Which in the menu, the order will be the 1st(chocolate in glass) and the last(Cinnamon thingy). Ended up we have to force ourself to order this.
Well well, to much our complain during the meal, as closing for the whole dinner, add on another disappointment. The shortcake taste more like pancakes. The cake is warm, not so hard, salty mix with sweet strawberry sauce and with ice-cream. The whole thing does not goes well. The other cream thing also taste weird. Disappointed desert. Cost us RM16.90. Rather have another Onion Rings.
Total bill is RM 180. Which I find it kinda expensive for the food quality including 5% gov and 10% service charge.
Will try again some where in the future. Hopefully wont let us down again.
