Solomen (8)

For a cup of hot Latte @ RM 9, is indeed a pretty good value buy

Solomen (10)

Gyoza (6pcs) @ RM11.90 Nicely pan fried at the base to give a little crips and home made mince pork base is good.  Ton katsu (deep fried pork chop) must dip with their special sweet sauce. @ RM20.90

Solomen (11)

Hoikoro is the pork belly slice, especially perfect to pair with a bowl of rice. RM 16.90

Solomen (12)

Solomen (13)

For a slight change of taste, then you can hit onto their fusion Kimchi Ramen @ RM 19.90

Solomen (14)

Their Signature is Tonkotsu Ramen with a slight twist where they add in some salted veggie into it to give a sourish saltiness to its pork bone soup base @ RM20.90

Solomen (15)

Solomen (16)

I would prefer their Negi Miso Ramen @ RM20.90 as the love the miso paste salted flavour.

Solomen (17)

hokkaido butadon @ RM 22.90

Solomen (18)

Among the don, I like their shiogayaki don @ RM 21.50. Love the mix egg ontop of crispy fried pork cutlet.

Solomen (20)

For closure of the meal, we are keen to try on their cakes and Tiramisu @ RM11.90 & Cempedak Lover @ RM 13.90. Cempedak is the clear winner where the punch of cempedak flesh and taste is there also did not overpower the chocolate along. I do not mind to have 3 slices of it to pair with their coffee.

Solomen (21)

Not a bad cafe for hangout and also enjoy some food. First timer, I would suggest on their Gyoza, Signature Tonkatsu Ramen and Cempedak Cake.

Back to basic, where this was a random hunt that I brought my ex colleague back to a place that I constantly used to crave for my fried fritters or this famous Goreng Pisang. This little food truck that sits right infront of Pelita SS2, is one one of a stall that you would love to hunt for simple snacks. Being around for quite a while and now her son is assisting in continuing the business.

ss2 goreng pisang (1)

Constantly pack with people, where queue were rather fast, as 2 auntie are taking care on their own station to serve customers. Price per piece is ranging from RM 0.80 – RM 2.50 (depending of the fresh produce for the season)

ss2 goreng pisang (2)

ss2 goreng pisang (3)

These are all classic snacks that I used to eat alot when I was at Penang and its hard to find a nice stall in KL. I find this quite suitable to my liking.

ss2 goreng pisang (5)

I love this alot, as this homemade potato kuih have the nice fragrant that I used to miss. Soft and aromatic.

What to hunt for in this stall is their usual fried banana fritters, their potato kuih, Kuih kodok, and any of your favourite that you can just pick from the basket.

Read Vkeong’s review for his recommendation on Hong Kong noodle that located at one of my favorite kopitiam that previously known as Ho Ho Sek at Chow Yang, SS2 which now had changed hands to Restaurant WDS. Hosting back many of previous hawker stall and one new player that stood more prominent that the others is this Hong Kong Wantan Noodle (香港鲜虾皇) .

Restaurant WDS (1)

Restaurant WDS (5)

The main chef, Vincent used to work in a famous local HK restaurant chain before he decided to venture out on his own. You will get to see him at the stall as he is the main person that prepares you all the ingredients.

Restaurant WDS (6)

Restaurant WDS not only host one stall as they have many variety of stall for you to hunt for, especially right the furthest behind, there is this one stall is well known for their Sang Har Mee which you can see many people order or their Cantonese Ying Yeong.

Restaurant WDS (7)

If you come here during 12pm-2pm, do expect a mad rush of table hunting. This is when all the workers of offices nearby are here to hunt for their favourite.

Restaurant WDS (10)

Their Kopi Kau indeed is a coffee to go after. Pack with local coffee flavor and thick. (only Kauz)

Restaurant WDS (9)

Popiah is decent enough.

Restaurant WDS (11)

Char Koey Teow is one of the well known one in the coffee shop where you can see alot of old folks are ordering it. Indeed its a great plate of CKT where filled with wok hei and decent big prawns and alot of cockles. @ RM 8

Restaurant WDS (12)

Here comes the WanTon noodle where we ordered both dry and soup (where it is the recommended ones) . Love the texture of noodle where it is springy to my liking and also found out that the noodle used here is made according to their specification with 100% duck egg only, which explains the naturally occurring yellow than usual color and do not have ‘kansui’ taste. Add on their char siew for my usual order and it is not the best but good enough for my noodle. RM 7 – RM 10 per bowl – depending what ingredient you add in.

Restaurant WDS (13)

Restaurant WDS (14)

Find that their soup base is good enough where it is pack with clear soup flavour as it need.

Restaurant WDS (15)

Love their Wonton, as it is big enough and generous in ingredients also have a decent size prawn in it.

Restaurant WDS (16)

Restaurant WDS (17)

Last we ordered a Curry Mee end our meal, where the look is quite lemak in curry and pack with curry leaves flavour. Top with alot of cockles.

After took over by the new owner, this kopitiam or coffeeshop still have its vibe with many good hawker stalls. Still one of a good hawker center to come after!

Tried both of their version, and I prefer their Hojicha base over their green tea, where I like the little burnt rice taste of it.

SS 2 is one of my lunch area but little did I know that there is actually a nice restaurant that sits in this quiet neighbourhood (I mean the stretch of Kayu Nasi Kandar). A’Perfetto is a Italian-Japanese restaurant that serve modern cuisine or you can say modern fusion food.

a perfecto (1)

a perfecto (2)

A restaurant that sits in this neighbourhood with such ambiance is consider posh for me.

a perfecto (3)

Food and price in the menu consider pretty reasonable.

a perfecto (4)

The super main catch that makes me coming back for more is their special in house promotion. Buy a mains and you get a glass of wine and best of all is FREE FLOW all night long. (yap, with just 1 MAIN and you get it)

a perfecto (5)

Mushroom Soup is pretty good. Not too thick nor too watery as its cook just nice and top with olive oil. Rich enough to my liking that serve with two slices of garlic bread.

a perfecto (6)

For easy bites to go along with their wine is Golden Mozzarella Cheese Puff with Spicy Mayonnaise sauce. Puff is bake to perfection where is crispy and crunchy and cheese add on the salty taste with little burst flavour from ebiko and spicy mayo enhance the end taste of it.

a perfecto (7)

This is one of my favourite, Wagyu Beef Hako Zushi is a great twist of combination modern food. In the sushi they add in ebiko that gives bites that creates a little burst in it and wagyu is add on to enhance the flavours of it.

a perfecto (8)

Their pizza is kinda unique where its super thin crust as its more like a tortilla-base. Japanese inspired version pizza where it is filled with smoked duck breast, quail eggs, avocado paste & truffle oil @ RM29

a perfecto (9)

Scallop Risotto with Crab @ RM 35. Lovely dish as it is cook very different as compare to those I had, this is more soft and it is definately very filling. Best to advise to share. Love it as the taste have sweet hint of seafood from the broth that they cook with and a mild hint of mushroom.

a perfecto (10)

Another simple yet nicely done by them is Wagyu Beef Hako Zushi With Truffle Sauce. Beef is cook medium well to suits many peoples taste bud a simple rice dish pack with flavours.  

a perfecto (11)

Naughty Duck – duck leg confit with potato tempura and flavorful herb sauce. @ RM 30

a perfecto (12)

Fried Ice Cream for dessert. 

Been here couple of times for their mains and free flow wine. A great place to hang out with friends.
