Instagram really had made friends connected more and I do follow a bunch of hungry goers and whenever they always eat, sure they will insta first. I guess now insta had become a term of it. Nevertheless I came accross Kelly’s Insta when she said she had one of the best ajitsuke tamago, along with comment in this ramen shop is worth trying, can be rated as one of the best Ramen in KL City or within Golden Triangle is this Marutama Ramen.

Since I am in KL and its rainy Sunday yesterday, will make it a pit stop then. Located on 1st floor in Farenheit 88 located this Ramen Shop hidden at the back corner. Manage to find it thru Foursquare (I guess app now pretty usefull).

Mafu (1)

Mafu (2)

With traditional Japanese dining ambiance.

Mafu (3)

I never have enough when comes to ramen add on. Will usually top up.

Mafu (4)

Price in the menu are pretty decent, not only that, I am keen to try how their chicken broth will taste like. Since most of my favourite came from is with pork bone or pork soup.

Mafu (5)

They are being generous with the ingredient with unlimited fried garlic. I just took one slice and eat it just like that, crispy and flavourful. Just perfect to be added onto the ramen.

Mafu (6)

I will as always try on Gyoza (餃子) for RM10. I would say that one of a great quality gyoza that the ingredient that added in is pretty solid, soft meat with hint of ginger soak along chili oild and vinegar base make it nice to bite.

Mafu (7)

Among in the list, what attracted me the most is this combo Kakuni Tamago, @ RM 27 that have all the ingredient that I want, with ajitsuke tamago, slice pork and pork belly. When this was serve, I look down on this petite bowl and thinking will it ever fill my stomach, then quickly I took my spoon and sip on the soup base as very keen how chicken soup base would taste like. Surpise with the taste, thick and flavorful that I continuesly drinking for a few more sips before I stop.

Mafu (8)

Ramen is pretty springy in thinner version and it was not over cook.

Mafu (9)

This is what Kelly meant, and I have to agree with her that its one of the best egg with egg yolk can be ooze out and well season. Every bite is soft and I don mind to order 2-3 more for this. Its a must have in your ramen if you do come here.

I am surprise to dine ramen with such great soup base especially with Chicken Soup base. A soup base that had been boil for hours to make it thick and nice. As good as what others say. I surely dont mind to come back again to dine another round.

One of my favourite place that I used to hang out in Jakarta when I was based there quite a while is Menteng. Supper spot there is like those few particular place that must drop by or my friend often feed me along as they know I just love their food.

Menteng is slightly off from Jakarta City it self, not too far yet is about 15 minutes away only for night drive. If you are talking about day time traffic easily 30-45 minutes?

menteng (1)

Menteng street food or hawker center is rather famous to the locals yet slightly commercialize too as its located not too far from the city and offer variety of local hawker food that I love. Its actually one of my favourite hawker area for night spot in Jakarta

menteng (2)

Of course while you are seating in this busy hawker center, please beware on your personal belongings. . .

menteng (3)

Variety of local food you can hunt for as I always eat those usuals. ..

menteng (4)

Their local hawker food with cute little cart all stack by side by side and people here are very harmony, as they help each other in their business and lend a helping hand to serve and order.

menteng (5)

My bakso soup.

menteng (6)

If you want some challenge in your food, add in their super spicy chili sauce as only a 2 spoon full is enough to make me drench in sweat.

menteng (7)

Nasi Goreng Gila – (direct translation – Crazy Fried Rice) as they have lots of ingredient, whereby it means, what ever ingredient they have on their cart, they just cook everything along in it. One of my favourite too. RP7000 – RM 2.30

menteng (8)

Then my sate that I will not miss which is totally different from Malaysia version especially with the seasoning and the gravy that added on.

menteng (9)

Sate Kicap (Soy Sate)  is usually my favourite and add on with their local sambal. slightly sweet as on their soy sauce, thick in gravy with their own mixture and sambal kicks the flavour up on spicy side. I usually order in mutton.

menteng (10)

My all time favourite is roti bakar with cheeze and chocolate rice. Just awesome as some of you might find it sweet, yet this is one of the best toast I come accross, heavy for supper? NOpe as you will fall in love with it.

menteng (11)

The Apartment is not like a new development or project that is upcoming. A place that had been establish with very homey concept as The Apartment was named. Understand that many of us dine outside after work very often as the outlet aims to provids a casual, comforting home dining experience set in a modern apartment-like restaurant setting that is located at The Curve shopping mall.

the apt (2)

With their cozy environment, I used to hang out here with my friend for drinks on weekends as they play great soft music as background music and perfect place to chill and chat.

the apt (4)

It is exactly like a house as this is one of the few sections I love to be seated around as I called it living room area or bed room style located one floor up.

the apt (5)

A simple DJ deck area to spin off some music. I guess we can be DJ ourselves too, by doing a mixture at home, plug and play here. :p

the apt (3)

For special functions or private events, definitely wound be one of the place to consider as can easily cater quite a crowd with their huge dining space.

the apt (6)

the apt (7)

the apt (8)

the apt (9)

Ever dine before in your bathroom? Hehe, they do have a bathroom dining concept here too.

the apt (10)

the apt (11)

Okay, lets start off with what The Apartment have to offer and for the month of April, the have something special inhouse as currently they are doing The Chef Series that feature special serving of deep sea delicacies themed menu Unlimited Flavours Of The Ocean. They will be featuring in 2 parts as for Part 1 which is in April and Part 2 is on May.

the apt (12)

A flavorful Oyster Shot that prepare in shot glass to give you the after pleasure. I was told not to use spoon to dig up instead I just have to eat the whole thing like drinking a shot. Being a good follower I just follow and I am amaze on how the taste blend in. A bit sweet and sour from the mango, oyster is fresh that the after taste is fresh and refreshing. I do not mind to have another 2-3 more shots. 😀  RM11.90

the apt (15)

Next is the steak which is prepare medium well that comes to my liking and for the first time I see a steak pair with prawns mixture with  au jus, garlic, chillies, honey glazed tiger prawns & mash. Surf ‘n’ Turf is one of the latest addition to the menu.

the apt (16)

Almond Crusted Cod is one of my favourite for the night. Cod is very soft and fresh, with a gentle cut in between it just open instantly. Almond was fried crispy and brings the aroma out of it, cook along with some clams make it sweet and a bit sourish taste of tomato that makes the taste perfectly good! I just drink the soup base till dry. The cod nevertheless was being attack and gone within seconds. – Highly Recommended!

the apt (17)

Red Snapper @ RM39.90

the apt (18)

Pan fried red snapper with couscous and lemon butter reduction is one of the dish that suits most of our local people here as one of the reason I am saying this is most of our locals love to have their meals with rice. Therefore a simple pan fried fresh snapper and pair along with flavorful rice is good~

the apt (19)

Stuffed Squid is heading towards more of our local taste, a bit spicy on the end yet juicy squid being stuff with risotto to make it solid and goes along with the gravy. Every one just loves it. @ RM25.90

the apt (13)

Another dish that I like is Jamie’s Duck Pasta that brings you Fettuccine with shredded slow-roasted duck and tomato red wine ragout, topped with toasted pine nuts. Not many places that can cook this well especially with duck involve, and they have make it good with slices of duck meat cook along with red wine and the tomato taste just did not over power everything. Highly Recommended!

the apt (20)

Looking for something not so complicated then go for Tossed Pasta Plain is very simple yet flavourful as some of them just like their portion with lots of chili flakes. Too much will make your tongue numb yet its nice. 😀

the apt (21)

Prawn Capellini with tiger prawns, lemon zest, olive oil and marjoram.

the apt (22)

English Lamb Curry is another new addition to the menu. They are being generous with the lamb as its quite a big piece for a portion like that, well marinated and cook till the lamb is soft and serve along with special briyani, egg, carrot raita (yoghurt) and cashew nuts.  – Recommended!

the apt (23)

After great main dish on the table and it always have to get something sweet as ending and comes with Creme Brulee that is perfectly burn on the top to make a fine thin crips while your spoon poke upon it gives you a crack sound after that. Top with a scoop of ice cream and pretty good enough to make the sweet [email protected] RM13.90

the apt (24)

A desert that reflect much on our local delicacies as this  Buah Melaka Desert serve  palm sugar dumpling served and coconut ice cream @ RM12.90

the apt (25)

Premium Dark Chocolate Cake & Banana Pecan Cake 

the apt (26)

It used to be a hype on Red Velvet Cake and I have only tried once so far and this would consider the second time. I love this piece more with the texture of the cake is nice and the two cheeze layer is being put with the right amount that does not give you the feel of too much and strawberry dressing pairs it well. – recommneded

the apt (27)

For those who loves chocolate alot then you would not want to miss this Chocolate Mousse

the apt (28)

When this Baked Chocolate Pudding, every one’s eye was set on it and had make this desert super star for the night with its oozing chocolate syrup flow out along and with a scoop of ice cream being serve along and it is being freshly done from the oven and serve piping hot as upon this order you would have to wait for 15-20 minutes to get it. It was all worth the wait. I certainly would love to have this desert all by myself! not going to share! – Highly Recommended! 

the apt (29)

For those of you prefer something not that sweet then this slice definately suits your taste bud as Homemade Carrot Cake served with mascarpone cream and carrot syrup.

Part 1 of the special menu going to finish soon and I just cant wait for part 2 on chef’s special.

Bangkok trip is all about makan on my 5th day trip, after heavy dinner at one of good restaurant that Goft recommended which is Taling Pling at Central World then now we are hunting for one of the best desert around that area called Mango Tango that operated by Hong Kee according to Goft. On the way walking there, if it wasnt raining, there are night market directly opposite Central world heading to Siam square.

Mango Tango (1)

I find that the street market here sell clothing which is pretty nice as if we do not have time to shop alot in famous JJ Market (Chatuchak Market), here would be one of the good option too as you can bargain.

Mango Tango (2)

After about 5 minutes walk from Central World, here we are, as we reach our jaw drop as the place is so little and flock by so many people ready to hunt for places in the compact shop.

Mango Tango (3)

This place got famous with alot foreginers because it got feature in some international food guide in Hong Kong and Japan. There is where how they gain the popularity and branding.

Mango Tango (4)

Cannot deny that I love the concept of the shop that show’s purely they are selling desert and only desert that they are serving. They source the best mango in Thailand and its pluck fresh. A simple decoration of the outlet make it outstanding around the neighourhood area as it is very hard for you to miss the shop that is well light up.

Mango Tango (6)

Mango Tango (7)

Mango Tango (8)

I guess these are their best seller therefore put at the counter

Mango Tango (9)

We are amaze how fast this worker cut on the mango and look so pro .. . We were just drooling like a small kid looking at candy when me, Steven and Tatt saw the mango how yellowish and how sweet it is going to taste like. .

Mango Tango (5)

Annie always love to promote how  god the food is and this round with menu, I guess she will be a good food ambassor. Too bad I was not allow to post her eating pose. Saliva will drop just by seeing her tam chiak face (the way she eat). The cute menu also in Mango shape and the have selected menu for you to choose from and we have let the desicion for Goft again to go for our menu.

Mango Tango (10)

Getting ready with my spoon to attack on the desert yet the funny thing is that I have heard An Apple a day keeps the doc away and now, its A Mango a Day keeps the Doc away . .kekeke I sure do not mind by having lots of sweet aromatic mango. . .

As we were super full from dinner, and now its very hard for us to resist to say NO to deserts after looking on how the way they do it and die die also must try quite few. Our initial plan was order 2-3 to share and the end up result every one having one portion. 😀

Mango Tango (11)

Mango Sticky rice is just so opposite version of what we have in Malaysia and the servings there as I meant, that in Malaysia our sticky rice is a huge chink of it with a few slices of mango and in Mango Tango is a huge big ass mango with small scoop of sticky rice. Its served warm, soft and very aromatic with their superb coconut milk as we love it so much on the taste and pair with the smooth sweet mango is just perfect.

Mango Tango (12)

Mango Tango (13)

Do not know what to choose get Mango Tango Signature dessert and consists of a half nicely cut mango in cubes, with a side of mango pudding topped with whipped cream and a ball of mango sorbet. A perfect combination to try all version in their outlet.

Mango Tango (14)

Mango Delight comes with a mixture of fruits base, kiwi, mango, honeydew, aloe verra, watermelon and some other ingredient, and all the fruits are fresh and sweet.

Mango Tango (15)

Mango Smothie is super good,very smooth, easy to drink yet the mango is so aromatic like drinking pure mango juice.

Mango Tango (16)

Mango Tango (17)

all of us having great time with our desert and this is one of Goft’s fav drink .

Mango Tango (18)

One thing I regreted that I did not buy enough is their Sensational Mango Tango Desert – Preserved Fruits. One of the best I have eaten so far as they sell it in lose pack or economy pack that comes in a pack of 3 boxes. As for  now, whenver my friend go to Bangkok, I will try to ask them tapau this back for me .. Hehehe .. Once you eat it, its addictive even my parents finish this whole pack on the night itself.

Dry, not too sweet, as its like eating pure mango in another version. Recommended to get at least 2 pack.

Mango Tango (19)

Here we are, our desert hunter and Collen always busy with her food, that is how tam chiak she is whenever taking pictures. 😀

As for last say, any order in the menu, surely will satisfy your crave on desert as all also pretty good!

If you do go Bangkok in the area of famous shopping districk Central World that area, please do not miss this super good yet delicious Mango desert, as you would not regret even though its a bit hard to find as you have to walk thru some alley turn right turn left.

Highly Recommended if you love or do not like desert.!!!!

They have 4 branch in Bangkok check out their website for other branches location : www.mymangotango.com

I just wish  Malaysia have such a good desert shop. The set back is our mango is so exp and import in even worst. I guess I shall keep my mango crave till next holiday . . 🙁

To me, one of the place that I used to hang out often is Solaris KL and recently I discover a new place drink and dine or would be another new area of F&B at Mont Kiara Area is this Solaris Dutamas. The place is 90% complete and there are quite handful of F&B already operating in the area. On the Table

on the table (7)

i love this section where all the dish come out from the kitchen to be served to the customer that have 2 gigantic spoon and fork . .

on the table (9)

At the far end which is the private area, that one good concept that I love about this restaurant is ‘On The Table’ that allows us to order something off the menu and try to give us experience variety of cuisine available in the world to be available on the table, just that have to make booking and let the chef know that you will like to dine something off from their menu. They have great combination of a few chef with different expertise in different cuisine that trying to fulfill customers satisfaction as much as possible. You can even asked them what is the fresh ingredient you got for the day and ask them to cook along that line or they will play around with the fresh ingredient and come out something special for you.

Then we were caught by surprise when we were told that the person lead by  Executive Chef Riz Redz that have vast experience in Italian cuisine at oversea for more than 10 years and also son of our very own local celebrity Chef ‘Chef Wan’
