Lets put that aside and one of the new outlet we found that got sell PORK! yes…I say PORK is this place called Chicago Rib House which is located at new wing few doors away from the old Italianese. Their first outlet is in Penang and I have tried once . . Now we have decided to give it a go again~

chicago (1)

A newly open place and its full house .. ūüôĀ as the attended is pretty attentive, while waiting,t hey explain the menu to us. .

The whole concept is totally different compare to the Penang outlet. Its more cozy and comfortable with a bit of modern touch.

This is how big it is ..

chicago (12)

We are certainly 100% satisfied by them . . .not sure bout you . .

chicago (20)

To kick start our night, we ordered a few cocktail to pull us right first. . .

chicago (13)

Cocktail order

chicago (14)

Classic Mojito which consist of rum, soda water, sugar syrup, crushed mint leaves a dash of freshly squeezed lime juice and a stick of fresh sugar cane.

chicago (15)

Ocean Mojito

chicago (16)

Lychee Mojito will certainly suits girls alot. You just drink drink drink non stop cuz its a bit sweet with lychee, hahh hahhhhhh..when the kick starts to kick in. . you will be either floating or planking on the floor. . .:D

chicago (17)

Mai Tai Рwhich is certainly the word suits the drinks. A strong drink infuse with alcohol as you don feel the strong taste of it. Overpower by the taste of pineapple ..  drink more you will see the effect~

chicago (18)

After some tipsy drinks, we kick start our meal with Trio Sampler @ RM32.90. ¬†√ā¬†Pork Chili Con Carne. It is accompanied by the the other 2 Trio Sampler members which comprise of Hot Buffalo Wings and Potato Skin. Love the potato skin`

chicago (19)

And take your Corn chips  dip out the Pork Chili Con Carne and put it like that, its just perfect!

chicago (21)

Pork Ribs (Full Rack, Flaming Kansas City) @ RM59.90 with 2 side dishes

chicago (22)

This is not just ordinary slab of pork ribs. or I would say one of the more unique item in this restaurant.

chicago (23)

its accompany by the small little shot glass there, as they are going to bath the ribs with bourbon. . .

chicago (24)

Then they going to lit it up and burn it for a while to let the taste of the bourbon burns into the meat. While eating the ribs, you wont actually feel the taste of the alcohol but the after taste of a bit liquor makes it even better.

chicago (25)

Before you are eating the pork ribs, you will be given a napkin and I love the quote, Caution, Porking in Progress … I have finish one of the ribs and will proceed to another process. . .

chicago (26)

Pork Ribs (Full Rack, Original Flavor) with 2 side dishes @ RM53.90

Love the classic sauce which taste more towards a bit like bbq n enhance with abit spicy chili in it. Love this one too . .

chicago (27)

Grilled Bourbon Chicken @ RM27.90  

Two grilled boneless chicken breast topped with their signature bourbon sauce and sprinkled with mixed cheese. For the side dish, please choose the rice. as the rice is good!

chicago (28)

If you love pork a lot and prefer more on meaty, this is definately one of your choice . 8oz. Pork Tenderloin @ RM32.90 grill to perfection that the meat is still soft after grilling, and the marinated sauce on it is just perfect and to bring it up more outstanding, right at the bottom of the meat, they include their own home made apple cinnamon dressing which is a bit sweet in taste yet pairs along with the pork very well.

chicago (29)

Seafood lovers like my friend, they finish this Shrimp Olio @ RM32.90 just within minute, where you can see how generous of ingredient they had given in this plate. lots of shrimps .. .

chicago (30)

Hickory BBQ Bacon Burger @ RM29.90

chicago (31)

AS another star for the night, when you prefer something a bit budget yet satisfying, this bbq bacon burger is certainly worth to try. Its huge pork patty with melted cheeze and bacon just bring out the taste.

chicago (32)

after this heavy heavy dinner, a full dinner must end with desert to make it complete for me. . .Brownie Royale @ RM12.90 with the brownie is not too soft also not too sweet, yet top with vanilla ice cream just nice.

Satisfying meal for me and my friends, I would say, there are not many porky place available around the area, this restaurant definitely stood out. .  Recommended shop~

Last weekend, we went down for a short weekend to Melaka and the hotel we stay is superb, Philea Resort (which will blog bout it soon) and while in the resort we skip out for a while before dinner time to hunt for some light food. Jason introduce us this place which is flock by alot people around the town area and also as far travelers from out station. Original Klebang Coconut Shake.

After reaching there, we were a bit curious what is so good about this drink which so many people are queuing up. Then we join the crowd also to see what is happening.

Jason told us that this place started off with just a very small stall and after his coverage in paper and blog, their business had a sudden boom which makes what it is today.

According to him, they are the first to do coconut shake and they have their own style then ask us to judge ourselves what is so good about it.

Starting of with ice pack in a blender, then a few scoops of ice cream, then coconut water then a mini cup of sugar syrup.

Blend it n crush it with with coconut meat that place at the bottom . . .


Then pour into this tube machine. . .

pour it out cup by cup and it looks something like milk shake .. .

You can have it either Coconut Shake PlainRM 1.80

Or Coconut Shake Special @ RM2.30 with additional scoop of ice cream.

The taste of it is quite thick taste like milk shake at first and the more we sip the more normal it taste like and the ice did not crush properly and ice is a bit harsh, actually there is nothing to shout about something simple and I still prefer my Penang style Coconut shake (click here) with a plate of mee sotong which is a RECOMMENDED PLACE if you visit Penang.

So if judge it yourself lahhhh.. and be prepare to wait for 20-30 minutes in line for this cup of drink as we felt its not worth the time to wait.

Making Tang Yuen is one of Chinese culture but its special on December 22nd which is a day for Chinese family member get together and make tang yuen (glutinous rice ball) which is also a day remarks that we are a year older.

Dong Zhi know as “The Winter Festival”, is the last celebration in a year before the arrival of Lunar New Year.

My mom bought this ready made flour at the market and just need to roll it into small balls.

of course you have to tear it into small pieces or your desire size to make it into small round balls.

Usually will make the rice ball a few colours.

and after boiling into hot water with added on some sugar syrup this is ready to be eaten. Usually one of my favourite. I took 3 bowls of this. kekkee

~ Happy Dong Zhi ~

With my company client around, and they have requested that they wanted to dine Lebanese food, and just thought of Al-Amar as I always walk pass a lot of times and just wonder how the food taste like. So got this opportunity to try out.


When you walk past the first section, its a very cosy area to dine in.

I just like their interior design, very well decorated with some middle east item on the wall.

With the middle east wordings on in and the best part is in the menu I don even like understand what it writes and the only thing I understand is lamb, beef, and some simple words.
My order was ‘Ice Tea’, RM 10 which I feel is very light in taste. Add in some sugar syrup it just taste weird.
‘Soup of the Day’ taste of the soup is more like veggie soup. Guess I don know how to enjoy this. RM14

I cannot remember what is this called in the middle east terms but you eat this with the fluffy bread that they provide is nice. Goes along very well.
‘Hot Bread’ Middle east style which is FOC and you can eat as many as you want.
I do not really like ‘Lamb Sausages’, it was cook inconsistent. There is one piece taste very nice rich with lamb aroma and mint taste yet juicy, the rest some is dry, some tasteless, just that I have taste better 1 before. RM22 ‘French Fries’ is their favourite. Nothing special to comment on. RM10

‘Lamb Kabsa’ is Steamed Marinated Lamb Meat served with tomato rice which cost at RM44. To what I feel is the meat is soft and tender yet juicy with some tomato puree that pour upon but it is quite plain. I find it nothing fancy.

What I feel for is that the ‘Mixed Grill’ which cost RM58 per plate is pretty expensive that filles with Tawouk, Beef fillet, and Katta skewers. All those skewers are a bit dry, eat it with bread is even dryer, even though the client said is good but I find it is bad with price they charge and the amount they served is so little.

For me, I still find that AL Diafah at Sri Petaling is nicer. The bill comes with no gov tax but add in service charge 10%

Concept kopitiam industry had been a boom at the moment. You can just see every where or corner is filled with different name and concept that they have. After Old Town, I believe Pappa Rich is one of their very next competitor. By hearing saying that the food is not bad, and my parents thought of something light to eat, so decided to choose this 1.

Compare to Old Town, I liked their interior design more, gives you comfy feeling and surely a great place to hang out.
When I look into the drinks menu, the name of the drink ‘Longan Milk Honey Ice’ caught my attention on ordering it. Something unique. A warning to those who have obesity. Please do not order this. The drink is damm sweet. It feels like you are drinking sugar syrup. I only manage to drink a few sips. That‚Äôs all. If the sugar lvl decrease by 70%, I think it would surely taste nice. RM6.90

When this ‘Roti Steam Kaya’ was served to my dad, my impression was, roti Bangkali(an Indian with the motorcycle selling bread) is served. Nothing special on this yet it cost RM4.50.

‘Nissin Noodle Fried Sausage n Chicken’ was my order. It is the far most plain ever dish that I have eaten in a restaurant which you can just cook yourself at home. Tasteless yet watery and the vegie did not wash clean. Cost RM 7.90 which I think is very expensive compare to those in Kim Garry or other Hong Kong restaurant or Old Town.
My mom was a very chin chai person when comes to food, but she irk about this ‘Mee Soup Foo Chuck n Fish Cake’ which is very salty. She said that its like eating a bowl of salt which I also tried, its really like putting your mouth taste some sea water. RM8.90
My bro had this ‘Pappa Chicken Chop’ and only one word for this. No comment or simply plain! RM15.90
‘Pappa Cendul’ Talking about cendul, thought that with its classy look of the restaurant and the serving of desert wouldn‚Äôt be disappointing yet it proves me correct. The ice did not blend very smooth, yet when you put it your mouth is like ice crush. If directly swallow, chances of throat damage might happen. The gula Melaka is very sweet which put too much. The santan taste a bit weird. Did not finish also. RM5.50
‘Tau Foo Fa Tong Yuen’ always remain one of my big time favorite. For this case, I just don like the taste of its soya. The skin of the tong yuen is too thick like eating flour than the filling in it!RM5.90 till the end, I still think the 1 in pasar malam taste much better than this.
My family and I had most disappointing meal and I would rate worst ever eaten so far yet with the price tag on each of the meal and drinks, its overprice and also have to pay gov tax and service charge. Definately BANNED this branch. Would not return anymore.
Maybe would try other outlets, since there are a few of my friends saying that they taste much better than Old Town but still prefer Old Town alot.
