Love pastry? Why not try out something new .. There is a shop I stumble upon 2 weeks ago at Publika that sells Hungarian bread. How I got attracted to it is that the friendly owner himself handing out the tester and it was pretty good. Then during my purchase got to know more about the little stall more. I ask him how do I describe this, he mention its a type of pastry taste like bread and a bit soft like cakes. Interesting I say.

kalac (1)

This whole bread or cakes originate from Transylvania also known as one of a traditional wedding Pastry. It name as Kurtos Kalacs in Hungary languages. Kurtos means Chimney, where as Kalacs is a type of pastry.

kalac (2)

You can see Malaysians at his shop as baker but the main lead is from the owner himself as the secret recipi comes from him, hence that is how the name secret 009 came about. All their dough are being made from scratch at the shop and bake fresh daily.

kalac (4)

They turn out in a form of rolls and easy to peel. Not only that, there are a few flavours for you to choose. Ranging from original – its a must try, rather plain and aromatic with its dough softness and special add on flavours. You can try if they have tester before you buy.

kalac (3)

Besides that, they have peanut. . .

kalac (5)

Cinamon. .

kalac (6)

Chocolate.

I bought 3 flavours home, with Cinamon, chocolate and original and find that its best to eat it fresh. As the owner told me that if you want to eat it the next day, use oven to reheat it about 3-4 minutes then its fresh to eat again. My advice is not to buy the chocolate flavour as its easy to melt.

Love the texture of this Hungarian Kalacs, that I would say its in between pretzel and bread. 😀

Worth to give it a try as they sell in 3 different sizes, for Small is RM 6, then have medium and one full roll.

Although I don really come to Desa Park City, it certainly is one of a nice neighborhood place to chill in. Everything seems so calm and peaceful, with people jogging around, playing tai chi, taking their dogs for a stroll and just feel nice to be here. – Soi Thai Restaurant

Not only that, as Desa Park City also have a little eatery place that smack right in the middle of the field and host quite a number of restaurant. One of the restaurant that I previously went that serve pretty nice food is a Italian restaurant right at the corner. Now, dropping by here again is a new Thai restaurant that open its door since last year October and heard quite good feedback on it.

This is a combination of pandan chicken, fish cake, thai wantan and croquette platter.

One thing to hunt for in this plate is the Pandan chicken. Well marinated and fried to perfection as the meat is ginger pale yellowish with a bit hard crust on the edge and its soft yet aromatic.

soi thai (9)

We ended up order another Thai Style Otak-otak as it is so good that each of us took 2. Steam to its softness like near eating jelly to my likings, and some prefer it to be harden abit. For me, I am okay with either version.

Steamed Siakap with Lime and Chili Sauce sourish with lime base and we drank it like soup. Spicy yet its good till my tears nearly drip.

Something that you must not miss is their Signature Fire Pot with Seafood Tom Yam (4 to 5 persons). By the smells of it already thrill us to drink in asap with its sourish spicy smell that poke thru our nose is something that we can wait to put our hands on. To our delight, the taste is as good as what we smell. Spicy yet the soup is filled with seafood taste and sourish after taste. Just a perfect pot of Tomyam. – REcommended~

This is something worth to recommend Thai Red Curry Roasted Duck mild in curry taste, with duck meat is quite soft.

So the big headache is the menu offer more than 100 deserts for you to choose from.

Now is the Vegetarian season and in KL to do that is really a pain in the ass, that’s why I have hold up this posting and decided to posting around this time. I have to thanks to Sidney (BigBoysOven) for the invites. If its not him, then would not have known this shop.

This shop is currently managing by the daughter and the mom is responsible on most of the dishes. All their ingredient are very pure and some are important from a few countries.


Renovated with very nice and cozy interior that really suits on what they are serving.

A variety of food you can get there which is the same as the normal menu in any restaurant but its just that in vegetarian form.


The aroma of the dish was flying around the area and it smells good. Can’t wait to eat it. The food presentation is like the wedding dinner set. If I am not mistaken, this is the ‘Combination Platter’. A dish that you would not want to miss.

I like this the most, ‘Vegetarian Baked Bacon’ very chewy and abit crispy, the sauce that topping on top is a kick on your taste bud. Once eaten, it just cant stop cuz its taste very the same.

‘Shark Fin Egg’ well fried with ‘wok hei’ yet the structure is very similar and you will wonder how they make it till it taste so good.
‘Cuttle Fish with Satay Sauce’ chewy and springy texture, enjoying every bite of it with very fragrance satay sauce top on top.
Deep fried till the outer layer is crispy and preserving the softness of the prawns in it. The own made mayo had make it a great combination taste will be the ‘Golden Prawn Mayo’.
‘Ginseng and Turnip Soup’ taste like home cook, deliciously finish the whole bowl till the very last drop.
Toufu Topped with Preserve Vegetable’ salty enough yet mix well with the taste of the toufu.
‘Mixed Veggie’ a perfect fried of vegetable that the lotus root is abit crispy and the aroma of the nuts jus sunk in make it a good dish that you would not want to miss.
‘Sizzling Spicy Fish’ Sizzling hot plate with the gravy pour upon still boiling and the sauce taste so good that it had mix well with the fish. The homemade gravy is one of the signature in there. Anything that with this gravy, it’s a good try.

‘Stir Fried Prawns in Sweet and Sour Sauce with Man Tou’. Man tou was friend to perfection as expected the crust is crispy yet inside is very soft. Makes it a great couple. As we tried out the prawns, we could not believe the texture of it. Taste so similiar with springy feeling.
‘Terriyaki Mock Duck with Scramble Eggs’. Love the terriyaki sauce that brings up along the aroma of the vegetarian duck meat. If I were to go there for lunch, this would be a great order.

We enjoy the whole vegetarian meal is a good experience yet the food there is first class yet their price is very reasonable as you can see in the menu. Since now is the season, and having a headache where to find one nice Vegetarian Restaurant, this restaurant is highly recommended.
