Burger joints are popping out every where, and its a trend. Well, lets go something classic in street style that I recently I was introduce a homemade street burger patty that run by Chinese couple. I have read Jacksons Burger is homemade by the uncle himself quite a while back and only remember bout it when Ken bring me over to dine at this stall.

Its not too hard to find them as I have read some blog that they always move around. Well, I have been here a few times and its still in the same location. Their burger price is definately cheap.

jackson (2)

They do not have a proper dining in around the premises as they run the burger stall in a little truck and we can take their plastic chairs to sit there and dine. They sell soft drinks too.

jackson (3)

What is interesting is that they do have their special homemade CRAB patty that Ken ask me to try. Of course I do a mix then, beef and crab.

jackson (4)

Of course my burger need to have added egg and cheese. If not it would not be a perfect one for me.

Then my burger is ready, it smells very good with the fluffy bread being well pan fried that I can even smell the majerine of it.

jackson (9)

Smack in betteen the bread and all the ingredients, here comes the Chinese version of burger that is pretty similiar to another famous stall in Penang, Hill Side. The patty are grill to little cruncy for my Crab patty and beef are just perfect. For afternoon lunch, its a good satisfying one. For Chinese to come out such burger, they are consider good. Surely cannot be compare with Ramlee burger as its slightly different style

To many Penangnites, I am sure with the restaurant name like Tao Authentic Asian Cuisine that offer buffet range, that have 3 outlets spread accross 2 in Penang and 1 in Sunway Giza, Kota Damansara KL (click here) and now this restaurant chain have opened up another new concept which is rather interesting that located in Penang Times Square called Yea Japanese BBQ & Shabu Shabu Buffet.

One of the reason that visited this buffet was my dad saw some blogger post that circulate in email and he had been asking us to come for the past 2 months since it had open till now we decided to come along.

yea (1)

It is very interesting to see how the whole new concept that they have build to another brand with very Japanese exterior and interior. ..

yea (2)

 

yea (3)

You can be seated in a few sections, this is a private room that can host up to 10 pax and you have to remove your shoes and put outside.

yea (14)

yea (4)

this section would be their outdoor area. . .

yea (5)

as me and my family was quickly seated, I walk around the whole restaurant to check out what is there to offer.

yea (6)

The range of food that they offer is pretty interesting. One of the best is not to miss on their homemade, fish, sotong and pork ball. . .

yea (7)

Fresh Oyster, Salmon with huge piece, scallop are all in this fridge for you to finish. Another fridge with lots types of seafood, for you to choose from.

yea (12)

This would be the best section to me with variety of meat to offer. I have tried all the meat and those lamb, lean pork, pork bacon, korean style pork are the one you must look out for. . .

yea (13)

yea (8)

Soft drinks counter and you just need to request a glass with ice in it.

yea (9)

Desert counter.

yea (10)

Variety of sauces available as one of the reason that, you are going to mix and learn to cook on the  on with their grill charcoal stove on your table.

yea (11)

ice cream that alot of kids attack on.

yea (15)

We ask on the waiter what soup is good and he recommend that most customer would opt to try their signature soup which is the clear soup base ‘Shabu Shabu’ (昆布柴魚湯)

yea (16)

In your table you will be provided with this utilities for you to play with . .

yea (17)

My meat plate..wakkaka~ and more that I have had till my parents surrender. 😀

yea (18)

What is so unique about this whole new concept is that they have this charcoal grill stove smack right in the table for you to bbq your dish. Most of the meat or things available are already pre marinated and now you will look like a cool Japanese chef in training.

yea (19)

put all the item that you would want on this grill and just turn around as you want.

yea (20)

You can put your huge chunk of salmon, prawns and other seafood to cook along.

yea (21)

Huge scallop to be stim on ..

yea (22)

and this is what happen to our pot of shabu shabu, as my mom loves it.

yea (23)

Each table will come with all these few basic ingredients, one of the reason if you do dine in Teppanyaki restaurant you see those chef add on those pepper and salt, now you are your own chef to do it and play around with these to make your food tastier.

yea (24)

This are the Opening promotion that they have now, and if you can really eat and do not mind getting fat, join their Supper happy hour which is Buy one Buffet at Regular Price and 2nd person 50% which is really worth it.

Among many buffet out there, certainly I am recommending this to go with its price smack on at RM48++ that comes to about RM55 per head that offer lots of seafood and meat for you to eat on. Having great sessions with friends I am looking forward to come back for another round.

Food taste is pretty good and did not disappoint us.

Best advice to call in for reservation that will convenient you.

***Remark you need to spend at least 2 hours to eat cuz of the grill time it takes to cook. Me and my family find that 2 hours is not enough cuz we went for late lunch as they were to close for that hour.

On our first night, arriving at Taiwan, it was all about eating and walking around as we head to business district to meet up with Pak’s friend that had arrange way before and booked a lovely Malat Buffet Steamboat restaurant (Man Tang Hong, 滿堂紅) for us, and surely they had made the right decision for us as we starve ourselves all the way from Malaysia to Taiwan just to eat their local food.

After 10 -15 minutes walk from the station that we disembark, here we are, in front of the restaurant with many people waiting around the restaurant.

restaurant 1

restaurant 1 (3)

When I walk up the stairs and the first thing that is was some young chef slicing those juicy and fresh meat and roll it into mini rolls and told my friend this is a must have section.

restaurant 1 (4)

Their interior build up is quite simple like our locals just that it looks nicer with wooden floor and hard plastic material that build around to build up some sections and the place are quite narrow and pack.

restaurant 1 (6)

This is where Pak introduce two of his best friends to all of us from left Eva and Tina.

restaurant 1 (5)

Once we were seated down, in the little menu, there are varieties of soup base to choose from, one of it that will not miss is their ‘Ma-lat Soup’ and ‘Sour Salted Vegetable Soup’.

restaurant 1 (7)

During the food ordering, of course we leave it to the experts to order and our responsible is to EAT! Drinks is free flow, with all the soft drinks Coke, Sprite and some of their local brands available in  glass bottle that store in two big fridge.

restaurant 1 (8)

One of their local food that you would want to try is the black stick (its in chinese do not know what it is called in english) that is made of something like our local muar chi add in with alot of black sesame. Taste weird at first but after the whole stick, turns out to be not bad, soft and filled with sesame taste.

restaurant 1 (9)

Item that must order which is their very own ‘Homemade Fish Paste’ by using bamboo and you can put into the soup according the size and shape you want.

restaurant 1 (10)

Comes to the meat section that had been perfectly thin slice by machine to make it instantly cook by a few dip in the hot soup are : ‘Beef Slices’

restaurant 1 (11)

‘Pork and Lamb Slices’

restaurant 1 (12)

This is what I mean, a whole thin slice of lamb, and flat it on top of the soup base and use your chopstick stir it for a while(less than 30 secs) then bring it out.

restaurant 1 (13)

This is how it must be done to ensure it is soft and not too hard. Lamb and beef definately is my choice in this range.

restaurant 1 (14)

After start off with meat section then we add in everything into the soup, while it takes time to cook, the clear soup base turns out to be quite bland in taste only manage to taste on a bit clear sour flavor but if you love something spicy or especially during winter and you want to enjoy a bit of sweat then ‘Malak’ is certainly the choice you must not miss. Spicy at 60% level where it is still edible not a few bites then you blow out flames, sour and to me its challenging to eat with the meat and ingredient but that was my main target for the whole night. Thumbs up!

restaurant 1 (15)

This is the homemade fish paste that we order again (as I do not like fish ball or paste, this turns out to be good).

restaurant 1 (21)

Lining up for sauces and revealing to us some secrets.

restaurant 1 (2)

Eating steamboat would not be perfect if you miss out the sauces. They have at least more than 15 sauces for you to go after.

restaurant 1 (16)

Then Eva and Tina show us their secret recipe of the sauces that they discover.

restaurant 1 (17)

The secret mixture of this are, peanut powder, chopped green onions, finely chopped and season garlic, a bit of chili powder, chopped chili, ONLY egg yolk and soy sauce. Result: hint of 4 flavors to enhance our taste bud and its superbly good!

restaurant 1 (18)

The packed of monkey that Eva is holding is actually a Packed of Maggie mee very cute of the packing and surely it taste like uncooked Mamee that we used to eat.

restaurant 1 (19)

During the dinner while waiting we camwhore abit and as for Eva it was funny and cute to see her talk for the first time as she just went to see dentist before meeting us.

restaurant 1 (20)

restaurant 1 (22)

It was fun to have them around as it makes the whole dinner merrier.

restaurant 1 (23)

Then after that I wasy busy eating . . .

restaurant 1 (24)

and we have around 15 pax for that night.

restaurant 1 (26)

restaurant 1 (27)

If you guys feel that the buffet is too heavy for you and would like to take something sweet by sitting there accompany your friend, for girls and guys that love ice-cream you will definitely be in heaven with the available selection as many as 12 flavors Hagen-Das.

restaurant 1 (28)

restaurant 1 (29)

First round of food was so satisfying, with great food and value that the dinner was only at NT550 = RM55 per pax, that  valid for 2 hours session, with fresh ingredient and also with great companion for a start.

If you are looking something to start off with some damage on your stomach, then this is the place worth to try. It is advise to make a booking before you go.

I guess recently that I notice, a lot of Non-Halal restaurant start mushrooming especially in serving pork burger. Therefore for all the pork lovers out there, you surely would not want to miss this, one of the latest crave that we got introduce is Betty’s Midwest Kitchen which is located in the heart of Aman Suria. We got here directly after a photo shoot outing at Recreation Park at TTDI.

Midwest kitchen served homey cook food by serving pork ribs, chicken sandwich, classical burgers which are simple yet delicious.

I just love how they decorate the restaurant with very American and porky feel, with a piggy cartoon pictures on the wall

Midwest Kitchen (4)

Mini Piggy collection~

Midwest Kitchen (5)

and nice American state art print on the wall.

With their recommendations of the day~

They sure have a lovely ambience to dine in.

Midwest Kitchen (7)

A counter that busy preparing drinks and display some of the the imported soft drinks.

Midwest Kitchen (8)

This is Betty’s Kitchen war zone.

Midwest Kitchen (9)

I love the design of the menu, with cartoony and cute designs, surprisingly is that the pricing is reasonable compare any other restaurants.

Midwest Kitchen (10)

 

Midwest Kitchen (12)

Midwest Kitchen (13)

Midwest Kitchen (14)

  Thomas Kamper Root Beer @RM5.50 per bottle

We were very hot and sweaty from the outing in the morning and craving for coke to cool down, then the waitress introduce us the root beer, without hesitation I just order because never heard of the brand before and the waitress said it is good.

Surprisingly I love the taste of it, its quite gassy and very refreshing that suits my current condition on that time. It taste like sarsi cross over with coke to get that kind of flavor, I ended up order another bottle.

Midwest Kitchen (16)

House Salad @RM8

For girls plan to go on diet, they healthy range would be their homemade salad top with fresh crisp apple tumble with home dressing.

Midwest Kitchen (17)

Pulled Pork Burger @RM12 – burger with the slow roasted and shredded pork and braised in special sauce

One of their porky burger range is serve with finely chopped pork in their home made sauce end with chunks of onions slip in between 2 slices of fine toast burger bread. The taste is awesome, not very salty as I love mine with add in mustard.

 

Midwest Kitchen (19)

“Dog Food” Gravy Fries @ RM7.50

When Ken mention this is a must have food, I said lets go for it and when he tell me the name of the food I curse him and when I look at the menu, seriously the name is Dog food. This is by far one of the best dish that I come across, that soak in sea of homemade sauce bake with a slice of cheeze. I kept eating till Ken said, Oi.. please leave some mercy, don finish it by yourself. – Recommended!

 

Midwest Kitchen (21)

Classical Meatloaf @RM15 – The meatloaf was made out of mince meat and vegetable

If you are looking at something off the menu that we do not get to dine in any other restaurant, then this would be one of the choice. Finely prepared and the catch is with the additional beer sauce that is given and must pour in it to get the flavour up, another recommended dish~

Midwest Kitchen (22)

Grilled Soft Ribs @RM25.50

Season well with sauces and grill till the meat is soft on the meat that one bite pull, the whole chunk of meat come off together.

Midwest Kitchen (23)

Hog Wild @ RM33 – A combination of the virginia ham steak, brats and bacon with mash potatoes, coleslaw in special sauce.

On that day, we were lucky as fathers day was last week and they have this special dish up just for two days, which is usually only available during Christmas. The trick is they do not always get very nice ingredient and its not cheap according to the lady boss therefore she recommend us to try it out.

With her recommendation, it never fail to impress us with the strong taste of ham steak that one bite, the flavor burst into whole mouth and its soft, chewy and thin layer of fats in between just melt in the tongue. If a beer was served on that day, could not be even more perfect.

Now, you guys have to wait till Christmas season to enjoy this special dish.

Midwest Kitchen (24)

Pan Fried Pork Chop with Country Gravy @ RM20

Grill the pork is soft, juicy and tender shower by homemade sauce with some black paper and I just love their mash potato.

Midwest Kitchen (25)

Forgot what is the name of this.

At the end of the meal, we were all very full, satisfy and feel so lazy to drive back. This shop of course is a Non-Halal Restaurant but surely I will be back for more for its price, quality and ambience.

Surely its a recommended restaurant by me~
