[Update: 1/5/2016 – now have move to SS2)

Damansara Uptown is famous for a eatery place whereby we can hunt a few nice place to eat with a great mix. One of the latest addition outlet to the area is this Private Kitchen that I have been told that they started off with small little privite dining and its popularity had grown then they have to operate into a shop. Hence Private Kitchen was the name and now is available in bigger space  with both ground floor and first floor (more for private functions or family gathering).

Private Kitchen (1)

I have travel to Hong Kong a few times and yet find something similar here. Hong Kong food is definately must not miss. Well this new discovery,Private Kitchen is no ordinary shop like those restaurant in shopping mall as they are offering more authentic home cook Hong Kong Cuisine. The man behind the master creation is Chef Lam with experience of more than 20 years on him. Being in Malaysia for less than 18 months, he had creatively come out with many unique dish to impress.

Private Kitchen (2)

A cosy dining area with wooden chairs with many pictures that resemble on Hong Kong that certainly makes you think you are in Hong Kong Restaurant.

Private Kitchen (3)

Private Kitchen (4)

Private Kitchen (5)

Chicken wings are well deep fried to golden brown, crisps on all edges, with mild spicy and salty at the end. A great way to start off our dinner.

Private Kitchen (6)

Follow by this delicious Smoke Duck with Mango. Juicy and chewy slice of smoke duck which is aromatic and blend well with light sour sweet mango, perfect! – recommended

Private Kitchen (7)

I love my meal to start off with soup, and this double boil soup.

Private Kitchen (8)

Is just a great way to make our stomach warm. Boil along with pumpkin, pork and some other ingredient makes the soup sweet enough just as I like or its just me that love soup, any kind of soup is tasty to me. 🙂

Private Kitchen (9)

As we all had the introduction of the meal, then we head to the next meal section which is their set lunch menu that I am totally jealous with most of the office worker working around the area. Set lunch start off with as low as RM 7.90 and below are some of the items can be found.

Hong Kong style steamed chicken in sand ginger powder noodle soup @ RM 9.50

Private Kitchen (11)

Finely chop ginger slices is one of the extra condiments that you must not miss out to pair with the chicken. I finish it and asked for another additional. Not too spicy ginger taste which had tone down and suits many people I think. Well, if you are not a ginger person its worth for you to give it a try.

Private Kitchen (12)

This is no ordinary steam white chicken. Been perfectly marinated and bath with ginger serve along with hot soup noodle is one of the way to satisfy your lunch. Soft tender chicken meat, with slightly fragrant sauce that blends well with the noodle soup. If I drink the sauce it will be too salty as it is not meant to drink that way. I pour the gravy into the soup it made it extra flavorful.

Private Kitchen (10)

 noodle in the soup to pair with the chicken

Private Kitchen (13)

Noodles with mince meat & fried egg in tomato soup @ RM 7.50

Private Kitchen (14)

This is no ordinary instant noodle. Well, I often got scolded for ordering instant noodle at restaurant because of the pricing and its easy to cook. Sometimes I just crave for it and cant help it. This here is a must try. It look pretty ordinary or simple yet the hidden ingredient why I love it so much is they cook their own soup base with tomato and pork that makes it sweet enough (something like ‘Loh Shun Tong’) filled with mince meat and a simple sunny side up. Love the soup as its slightly sour tomato base and we just finish it within seconds as the instant noodle cook to springy. – highly recommended

Private Kitchen (16)

If you love to have some pork, then you can opt for this Typhoon shelter noodles with Pork Chop in Chili and Garlic Soup @ RM 15

Private Kitchen (15)

Comes with deep fried pork as the side dish and noodle, perfect for raining weather at this moment.

Private Kitchen (18)

Stir Fried Pork Ribs with Rice @ RM 12.90

Sweet and soup pork ribs might looks ordinary, but this is a well balance taste, mild sweet and more pineapple sour taste as they cook along where you can buy chunks of pinapple. Deep fried pork are in cubes and soft that pairs well with the rice.

Private Kitchen (20)

Fried Rice Portuguese Style with braised pork belly & Seafood @ RM 16 is filled with wok hei and too bad that they don have sambal or chili oil to pair with. If not it would make it more outstanding.

Private Kitchen (21)

Private Kitchen Stir Fried Prime Beef Fillet with Strawberry Pepper Sauce @ RM28 

Now lets head to more of its ala-carte menu. Begins with this is pretty unique dish with me, as strawberry is being used to cook along in this dish.Cook till the gravy is well coated onto the beef, tender soft and juicy with mild pepper spicy after taste makes it a great dish for me.

Private Kitchen (22)

Something creamy and palatable then go for this one of my favorite for the night, Deep Fried Pork Ribs with Special Salad Sauce @ RM32. Me and Ken just enjoying this dish by just munching it half a plate with it well coated salad sauce, sweet and slightly creamy that make it appetizing.

Private Kitchen (23)

Creating your taste bud dancing, Stir Fried Squids with vermicelli   in Special Chili Sauce is next to hunt for. YOu have to eat it pretty fast and if not, the vermicelli will soak the soup pretty instantly. Soup taste of it is pretty amazing lime, sour spicy and squid is just fresh, chewy bouncy as I like. RM 28

Private Kitchen (24)

oh oh, this dish is pretty Hong Kong style as Portuguese Style Baked Chicken Chop @ RM 18. Slightly can taste on powdery ginger curry taste which definitely relates back to HOng Kong dish as the chef hvae slightly change the ingredient as he mention the ingredient here is pretty good and the base of it is potato is amazing. -Recommended when you have your rice.

Some of you might find the curry slightly powdery but that is what Hong Kong curry taste like. 😉

Private Kitchen (25)

I know I am being called taufulou, yet this is another amazing by the chef. Crispy fried Tofu with Salt & Pepper @ RM 16

Private Kitchen (26)

The chef have made the toufu so delicately soft that nearly melts on your tongue  with crispy base outside with light after taste of pepper and the bite of it taste as soft as taufufa. Is the chef special mixture to make it outstanding. If you have beer on your side, this would be the best option!

Private Kitchen (27)

another dish that was gone within seconds as the aroma of the spicy garlic trail on our nose that make it so tempting. Private Kitchen Typhoon Shelter Prawns with Chili & Garlic @ seasonal price. Huge succulent prawn being deep fried along with chili and garlic make this dish simple and nice.

Private Kitchen (28)

Any vegetable with pork, I am up for it. Private Kitchen Sautéed Chinese Chives with Dried Shrimp and Shredded Dried Cuttlefish @ RM18 is a well balance vegetable that comes with me, and the best part is the small little salted fish is crispy and the saltiness that bite after it with the vegie and pork.. ooo so hard to resit!

Private Kitchen (29)

End with this healthy herbal jelly. Not many people will like it but its something unique to end off with. I am okay with it and I believe my parents would love it.

I must say, this is one of the most impressive Hong Kong Restaurant that I have come accross and you do not know where to dine, this is one of a highly recommended restaurant in my list for Hong Kong Cuisine.

This place is totally new to me as Nicole told me she is gonna bring me to her favourite nasi lemak stall in Uptown I was like, “huh, there got famous Nasi Lemak one meh?” she said yes! just meet her there and I could not even remember there was one located along the stretch of HSBC. Have not met her in ages as she is busy travelling around and its a great to see her again. Village Park Nasi Lemak is one of a famous nasi lemak that gain huge popularity.

village park (1)

It is a place surely to  impress and I was here at lunch time. Its chaotic in Uptown as to find a parking spot at this time is your worst Nightmare!!! The only choices is to double park and being risk of either being kena Saman or Tow away. Be sure that you are there to monitor your car. I have seen a group of people came out from a restaurant and looking for their car as I saw their car got tow away.

village park (2)

Its amazing to see how this shop got huge coverage on media and not only that. As behind the payment counter you can see some celebrity and even our PM, ex PM Tun Dr Mahatir and many others came here to dine before.

village park (3)

Well, parking is not only the thing you have to be concern at as inside the shop is also chaotic, as the queue on this rice counter had build to outside and customers are pouring in.

village park (4)

Look at the Ayam goreng is just so tempting.

village park (5)

and my friend told me this is one of a must have!

village park (6)

Prices are slightly a bit more expensive for a plate of nasi lemak cuz you are dining in a restaurant.

village park (7)

This is how full house it would be and many other people behind me are waiting too.

village park (8)

This is a portion that according to my friend their signature ‘Nasi Lemak Ayam Goreng’ @ RM 8. Something simple yet delightful, as rice is fragrant with light santan taste, fried chicken is nice and I would love to have mine with the extra crispy left over from the fried wok. Sambal is not bad as I prefer it to be more spicy and I was told that it used to be spicy and due to general taste bud, they have tone it down.

village park (9)

Kangkung Belacan order extra for side dish.

If you start comparing, I would compare it in this way, as Village Park Nasi Lemak they are cheaper than any malls restaurant that have to offer and taste much better or one of the best so far. If you compare with the makcik pakcik little stall on the road side, cant be comparable as those are street food category and of course their price is much cheaper and you can find a few stalls that taste better than them.

As this place is not that far from my place, I find that the price and quality is pretty decent. Been returning for couple of times already. 🙂

I guess to many of us that when we dine in Lammeeya, it is pretty straight forward that they are famous for their signature Lammeeya, Lam Mee. One of their outlet in Uptown Damansara offers more than that. That they do offer home cook delicious dish on their extended menu which mostly had started off with this menu.

Lameeya (1)

I have heard many good things about this branch that their taste is always consistent and in tip top that hardly disappoint you. This is not my first time here, as I have came here a few times that I did not blog about it till  now. 😀

Lameeya (2)

If you come here during lunch time, you will have a massive hard time finding carpark as Uptown already famous for their congested area, and one of the best time to come and dine of course after work hours, which is much easy to find car park compare to day time. Not only that, to find  a seat in the restaurant would be much easier too.

Lameeya (3)

In this outlet, interior of the outlet which is a bit more contemporary compare to other outlets you have seen and you shall see more of the new concept from Lammeeya on other outlets as they plan to upgrade.

Lameeya (4)

In this outlet they also offer cakes which is made by them too . .

Lameeya (5)

I am usually a big fan of their healthy drink with many type to offer and some of the combination they made out create a curiosity for me to give it a try too.

Lameeya (6)

Lameeya (7)

1) Kasturi, Cucumber & Lime @ RM 8.80

2) Lychee, Celery & Pinapple @ RM 8.80 – Recommended

3) Watermelon & Lychee @ RM 8.80

4) Carrot & Orange @ RM 8.80

Lameeya (8)

1) One of the unique drink that caught my attention is – Lotus & Chestnut as we never thought that lotus root can make into a drink and it pair very well with chestnut and its refreshing. @ RM 8.80 Recommended

2)

Lameeya (10)

Lam Mee @ RM 13.80

Lameeya (11)

Their Lam Mee including prawns and own home made pork ball, and soup base gravy is thick as I usually eat and to make it more best, I usually add on two mini bowl of sambal they provide as I love mine to be spicy.

Lameeya (12)

If you have work outside quite often and miss some home cook soup, they do offer some double boil soup to please you and the taste of the soup is just there, brings out the right amount of taste that pair very well with inside ingredient that they have added in.

1) Watercrest Soup

2) Old cucumber soup

3)

Lameeya (13)

If you want some simple dish to make you satisfy or craving for some sort of Penang, Char Koey Teow, they do cook it very near to our style and its a recommended dish by me as the koey teow is cook to perfection with wok hei and its not spicy. For me I just love mine to be extra spicy, one thing that make it good is because they cook along with Duck Egg.

Lameeya (14)

Another super star dish of the night which is Stew Pork with Potato.I know, I know, its simple dish that we used to eat it from home cook or economy rice? How many actually can cook it till very nice and this is exceptional that when it was serve with the aroma flying around our nose, it was instantly rape and gone within seconds. – Recommended! @ RM 19.80

Lameeya (15)

A simple ladies finger that been soft boil in hotwater for a while add on with soy sauce and some finely mince chili with garlic to make it chewy and nice to bite, along with it, its a simple nice dish to start off with.

Lameeya (16)

Pork Leg Vinegar  @ RM 23.80

Lameeya (17)

Chu kiok chow.. one of the favourite terms that my friend always like to use as it is one of his favourite dish, as whenever he come across the availability he would never miss to order it as he always compare back with his grandmother style. For this round, he hardly commented because it was perfectly cook, with the meat is soft, and some juicy fats is thick yet it had been boil for long enough to make it soft that nearly melts on your tongue. The salty sauce is just right not too salty yet with enough of rice wine to make it aromatic. To go along with rice is the perfect combination for this.

Lameeya (18)

Wine chicken that cook along with herbs and lots of ginger. Some of you might like it or hate it with one of the reason the wine is pretty powerfull. Well, to me i am good with it as for a dish like this, I always prefer it to be in stronger taste.

Lameeya (19)

Hee, why why we do not go for white rice as they have the option of Pork Lard Oil rice that cook in mini claypot. Surely, it brings the omph in with so many dish that we can pair along.

Lameeya (20)

You and I might have the same thought on looking down this dish which is Ginger & Wine Omelet @ RM 19.80. This simple dish proves us wrong when we had a bite of it. With strong fried egg taste and did not over cook as the wine taste just blend in very well.

Lameeya (21)

One of my childhood favourite dish, simple yet delicious. Steam Pork with Dong Choy @ RM 19.80 – REcommended

Lameeya (22)

Lameeya (24)

 3 Types of steam egg

Lameeya (26)

 Another simple good food that welly cook.

Lameeya (23)

Now we are having something like more towards to Ipoh fehmous Chee Chong Fun is show how similiar and available too .Pickle Chili & Sweet Sauce Chee Cheong Fun @ RM 10.80

Lameeya (25)

Mushroom with Mince Meat Chee Cheong Fun @ RM 11.80, hehe,  I prefer the normal dry version to my likings. Some of them they prefer this, well again depends on you. 😉

Lameeya (27)

I tell you, this girl can really eat and what we could not finish, she just sapu all. Just do not look down on hungry slim girl.

Lameeya (9)

Cappucino

Lameeya (28)

We were super full when the dish all was served and desert coming up, also must have space for that.

1) Tiramisu

2)

3) Oreo Cheeze Cake

4) Chocolate mud cake which is pretty good that is not too sweet, warm with chocolate oozing out. – REcommended

Lameeya (29)

For desert, the super star that blew our mind away is this Banana Crepe with the warm banana dressing which is cook and  made on the spot, that pairs very well with the aromatic crepe. Ice cream to compliment along with the hot and cold sensation enough to make your teeth numb. – Highly Recommended!!

Now its my turn to share with you all on this great food that this outlet have to offer, that for the next few days we dine there again for lunch as they have set lunch available. Again never disappoint us with most of their food are pretty good. This branch top in my chart that is worth recommending. . 🙂

It had been ages since I last came to this shop. The last time when I came was back to 2009 which I did blog bout it before when I just started blogging (click here). As today I went for my first medical check up, thought of revisit this shop and Just got to know that they have change their name of the shop, from restaurant Living Food to MKP Lam Mee or Uptown Lam Mee (wondering is it the same) which I thought should be as the whole shop setting still the same.

The only difference in this shop is the crowd as I remember few years back, to get a spot in this shop is quite hard, as it was one of a famous Lam Mee shop in Uptown or among the neighborhood as my friend recommend to me.

Well, I still stick to their traditional signature ‘Lam Mee’ whereby the difference compare to Penang we call this ‘Loh Mee’ as our Lam Mee is in clear soup version. You get to choose their thick noodle or thin noodle as I still remember they are famous for their thick noodle. The soup base is still thick and a bit starchy yet still the same taste as I previously ate before the only difference is the texture of the thick noodle had change. Find it a bit sticky not so nice to chew compare to last time and I prefer mine to add on with their 2 small plate of sambal to make it extra kick! If next round I would order, I would go for their thin noodle. I think it would be better.

Only difference between the thing is the noodle and of course price had increase. A plate of Lam Mee, 2 pieces of ‘Fried Sui Kaw’ and 1 chinese tea cost RM10.10.

It was Sunday and do not know what to eat..then go google up. Found out this place then remember that my friends from Pg brought me there years back. They said that one of the very nice Lam Mee to dine there. Instantly go and kidnap my friend to dine with me.

After agak agak trying hard to remember where is it located and manage to find out at last.

The restaurant does not offer much variety but then sufficient to satisfy you but the crowd is still so pack. Full house from the time we sat till we left.

Looking nearby and found out that at alot ppl ordering the ‘Yong Tau Fu I only ordered, Fried Sui Kow, Fish balls and Fu Chuk. It was so so only. Cost RM0.80 per piece.

This is their famous ‘Lam Mee as previously mention by my friend that it was very nice. Still think that last time its much better compare to now.RM4.50 for this.

This is the ‘Dry Mee which taste not so good. More like mee kicap. Rather disappointing on this one as my friend did not finish the meal also. RM4.50 for this.
