Right after our dinner, few doors away is this yogurt stall is super pack with humans, as when I first arrive it had already attracted my attention to join along the crowd to try out what is so special about this Moochi Frozen Yoghurt  place. My friend had never understand what is the whole buzz about whenever he come and dine at his favorite Korean BBQ food at Bassim.

Moochi (1)

As a tourist, of course I would keen to try on any food. During winter time its quite a good crowd despite yogurt is cold and many people are still keen to get brain freeze. I jump onto the queue and my friend scolded me, because of you I only try out. Normally I wouldn’t care much, as anything that I have to queue, they wont enjoy my business.

Moochi (2)

Moochi (3)

Moochi (4)

I wonder how did this brand came about. . .

Moochi (5)

They even have their own drinks.

Moochi (6)

A simple menu that the have and their price is very reasonable.

Moochi (8)

Moochi comes in different sizes and if you are a big eater then MASSIVE  would be your choice. They have 4 flavours to choose from. Original, Green Tea, Pomegranate and Watermelon

Moochi (7)

Right after the order you can choose your toppings. Ranging to about 21 toppings selection.

Moochi (10)

Then pick up a bottle of Pomegranate peach passion white tea @ AUD 4.50. Slightly sourish, and strong hint of passion fruit taste and we find it slightly sweet to our liking. Its good though if they can tone down the sweetness 20% then would have been perfect.

Moochi (11)

Jeng Jeng Jeng, I choose a small cup to go after as we are super stuff right after super heavy dinner. Chose Original with 3 toppings, @ AUD 5.40 with mango, lychee follow by unique flavor that for the first time I have come accross is Watermelon with another 2 topings, oreo and honeydew (if i am not mistaken). Watermelon is a better selection.

Texture of the yogurt is smooth, aromatic and slightly more creamy that I like it. After putting into your mouth, it melts slight faster and upon so many brands that is in Malaysia, this brand definitely stood up.

In Japan or as seen in a movie, there are alot of small little famous eatery around neighborhood that hidden around a corner. There are a new hidden gem in the heart of KL with many of my friends saying that I did not know there are actually a Japanese restaurant there regardless they walk by that route almost daily. Ozeki Italia is actually a new restaurant that located at Ground Floor of Wisma Cosway, directly oppostive Novotel Hotel. A small little restaurant that operate not more than 4 months that serve pork along that had slowly gaining its reputation among local food hunter.

Ozeki (2.1)

Its not a huge restaurant that estimated full house capacity about 50 pax at one go. Therefore, to dine here, it is highly recommended to make your reservation. I always love Japanese cuisine and as far I as understand there are actually very less Japanese Chef explore other part of the world to learn other country cuisine and to my surprise  the current head chef had resides in Italy for 30 years and had been travelling around small town to learn their recipe therefore OZEKI Italia is actually a combination of Japanese and Italian cuisine that sparks the interest in me.

Ozeki Italia (1)

The ambiance certainly do give me I am ship to Japan to dine in those small little outlet which alot customers are willing to queue for their good food.

Ozeki Italia (2)

Ozeki Italia (4)

Ozeki (1.1)

With the quality of chef produce, the price is definitely reasonable and apologize for the blur menu.

Ozeki Italia (5)

IF you are adventourous then leave your meal to the chef as our first dish came out right from chef’s idea is Chef’s Recommendation @ RM58. Grilled Fresh Sanma with Bacon Tomato Sauce. ITs a very unique combination here with first hint of fresh sweetness of seafood is tasted then follow by strong seasoning of green gravy on top of it which is strong sourish salty. Regarding on this dish, it is best to pair with white wine and I think it will absolutely bring out the freshness and taste of it.

Ozeki Italia (6)

I have always love pork burger and this is one of a unique dish, Polpetine @ RM 32. Duck hamburg steak served with spinach sauteed, dry raisin, pine nuts & topped with half boiled egg and chef special Japanese sauce

Ozeki Italia (7)

We were brief by the manager, there are actually 2 ways in eating this. Original purpose,  you will poke on the egg yolk to let it ooze out and pair it along. There are also people dislike the taste mixture, you remove the egg yolk to the side of the plate then only poke as only little part is mix with then only pair along. The difference I got is, original taste without egg yolk taste much better but with egg yolk dipping with the soy sauce on plate makes it better as for after taste.

Ozeki Italia (4.0)

Home made bread as I whack 3 of this. ITs so good, soft and serve pippin hot which is fresh from the oven. Rarely you will find such a great bread especially the charcoal bread that made in house by the chef.

Ozeki Italia (9)

Something looks ordinary which is Insalata Prosciutto RM 28 – Mixed salad, Parma ham, grapes, Mozzarella cheese with Japanese dressing. Parma ham taste, fresh finely slice and mozzarella cheese give the well balance sweetness of the salad makes it a superb dish. Recommended!

Ozeki Italia (10)

DiavoleRM 38 – grilled marinated spring chicken with Japanese Citron Pepper and Olive oil, served with potato & mushroom sautee, dressed with japanese citron pepper and balsamico sauce. A young age chicken being well marinate and grill to perfection that the meat is juicy and soft with the light seasoning is enough to make the taste awesome~

Ozeki Italia (11)

I have always finding it hard to find good Rissoto. I must say that this Risotto OstricheRM 34 is one of the best I have come across especially from a Japanese Chef that cook it so authentic. Risotto cooked with assorted Mushroom & Parmigiano cheese topped with steamed Japan oyster on Hot Sizzling Plate. Something simple that keeps me digging into it until its finish then I stop. Cook to perfection that its just moist enough and taste of mushroom and parmigiano cheese well balance. Recommended~

Ozeki Italia (12)

Spaghetti MerluzoRM 48 .Spaghetti tossed with homemade corn marigold paste, cooked & chopped garlic and olive oil; topped with grilled black cod fish with Japanese soya sauce, sprinkled with Japanese assorted chilli pepper

Ozeki (3.1)

Indeed it is a very satisfying meal and its hard to find one eatery that offer such authentic food. Not only that before I walk off they have dinner buffet on every Sunday and price is very reasonable. Surely I am coming back for more.

Before I end this, a new discovery is that, in this restaurant they have chef that specially cook to cater on our local taste as they have discover that different people especially Chinese have stronger taste bud therefore the food cook on the day will be specially for you as in the kitchen they are being inform its Chinese guest. If it is Japanese diner then it will be tone down according to the authentic taste. For me, it is best to let the restaurant manager or the person that took your order saying you prefer authentic taste. Again it is up to you as you cant complain as you wish to try it out.

Highly recommended restaurant if you wish to try out some authentic taste and please bare in mind with food that you are not familiar with, please request the manager how you enjoy best of your food.

Finally, I get to write up on this place. Most of my friend since beginning of this hear, when asked . . Where do you go Yum Cha, often the answer is OverTime. It is one of the latest hit hang out spot in town, started in KL and growing rapidly in some other states too.

[Close down]

overtime kl (1)

OverTime had turn into a drinking place for alot of office workers or bosses as I guess with  its great ambiance and unique brew beer of its own had attracted many from young to old.

overtime kl (2)

overtime kl (3)

overtime kl (4)

To drink Starker, the only place to get is only at Overtime as they do not sell at off shelf like many other beers do as the beer are always serve fresh and have to drink at the temperature of 4° to 6° Celsius .

overtime kl (5)

If you find that the mini barrel do not satisfy you, get the biggest barrel.

overtime kl (6)

A bar that offer a few types of seating from outside sofa type as you head further in, its not a bar ambiance with rocky wall. .

overtime kl (7)

and they have 2 area more like can cater for bigger group or private functions with solid sofa provided

It seems that Taiwanese  bubble milk tea seems like the latest trend to hit in Malaysian shores. First was Cha Time to boom in the market, then few months down the road, next brand that my friends talk about is this latest brand in the market Dong Cha which is also origins from Taiwan, also I realize that there are a few more brands opening up within this 2 months. . Gong Cha (貢茶) which origins from Kaohsiung in Taiwan since 2006 then start from 2009 they have bubble to Asians countries like Hong Kong, Macau, Singapore and a few more. Hit to Malaysia few months ago

gong cha (1)

gong cha (2)

This is how Gong Cha outlet looks like in The Gardens, Mid valley which located at 1st floor if I am not mistaken it is located on 2nd floor on Paparich/Digi/Maxis that wing.

gong cha (3)

This on the wall would be their signature drink and its the same like all Taiwanese bubble milk tea, you get to choose your level of  sweetness level – no sugar, 30%, 50%, 70% and full sugar.

Seems like they are quite famous for their Signature Milk Tea and the ways to drink it:

  1. Milk moustache – without stirring, sip the freshly brewed tea from top layer of milk foam.
  2. Tea off – without stirring, slurp the tea from the bottom with a straw to savour the freshness and complexity of the tea.
  3. All in one – Stir both layers together and enjoy a perfect blend of milky froth and aromatic tea!

gong cha (4)

So I ordered and tried their signature drink which I am quite satisfied when I order in their another outlet in SS15.. Since I want to intro this to my friend we decided to try out this branch . .

I would say that I am just very disappointed with the drinks that they have in this branch compare to the one I tried in SS15 as the taste differ so much. My friend just had her Oo Long Tea  a few sips then she gave me the whole cup and I tried it, its like putting milk in plain water and stir it.. Then I throw it away. The Green Tea I had was quite disappointing as well . .

To me I find it weird that how can the quality differ from both branches? I guess that their worker did not train well to mix the whole ingredient well . .  Well well, I should give them another try on their Gardens outlet again . .

Besides that, some of my friends prefer Gong Cha over Cha Time. .  Depends on your preference oh~

Aren’t that when we are in shopping mall, we are spoilt for choices when comes to food, but then if when we are picky, it is not much that we can look at, its either we have to dig deeper into our wallet to get a really good meal or just close one eye and dine any where. Brozeit German Bier Bar

Then as my birthday coming up and I suddenly thought of Brozeits that Jac and Eric mention to me that in Mid Valley have quite a nice German restaurant, Brozeits and dinner will be there.. So I have asked everything I can on what to order in the restaurant.It just just a stroll to the very end of Chili Restaurant that direction which the restaurant is next to Maybank.. . .

On that night it was quite packed with people and the place look pretty comfy eh~

Normally with a classic German restaurant, most of their place will be decorated with a bit of wooden style like wall or floors or bar.. . . to blend the ambiance of German style

 

this drawings on the wall is really really interesting with the plan of how the process goes. While reading at the menu, only I get to know that how Brozeit comes from. . . ‘Brot’ being German for bread and ‘Zeit’ for time – referring to a small meal or snack accompanied by beer.

By looking at the menu, we were really lost for a moment both with the wordings and also the price. Certainly it is not cheap to dine here. For German food it is always for their German Beer, sausages and pork!

One of the highly recommended beer which for the very first time I taste it is ‘Mango Affensaft’ around RM 38, it is by far one of the most expensive beer that I have come accross, and if you are looking for something a bit different in taste, this is the one that you are looking foor, mild german beer which is very smooth that start a bitter taste in our tongue then follow by aromatic mango and a bit of sweetness at the end which is just perfect!

If you are a pork lover and seriously, this is a MUST ORDER – Schweinnemedallions/Pork Medallions Grilled Pork Fillet Medallions wrapped in Smoked Bacon served with fries and sautee vegetable. . .RM 44, the pork meat is so soft and the pork bacon that wraps around it taste so good! The fries is just like the one I like from Carls Junior… dip with chili sauce just makes me stop eating. . .

Wursteplatte – Sausage Platter RM 78 that consist of :

spicy chicken sausages, pork bratwurst, mini pork cheese sausages, weisswurst  sausage, garlic sausage + sauerkraut

 

Next recommendation is Broizeitflade Speck/ Spicy Bacon Pizza – thin crust fladenbrot with roasted bacon, onions, vine ripened. If you are talking about German Pizza, this is by far one of the best that I come accross, thin cripsy filled with thick layer of cheeze and aromatic bacon taste is so good, even my brother cant stop eating this!

German food would never be perfect if you didnt go for Pork Knuckkle RM 85 which is a super huge rack and that waiter told me that 1 portion is enough to feed for 3 pax and I ordered 2, which is totally very SALAH cuz a table of 7 with this 2 super huge knucckle with a few other dish is just too much!

Trust me, you would not want to miss this super crispy skin with layer of fats and the pork meat at the rock bottom is so soft. . . dip it with the gravy will just makes you continue eating.. . . ..

Lastly of course, we are too full till we wanted to faint because of the hugeeee knuckle and with this cake, we have very little space to eat it. Thanks to all my friends who had celebrated with me and this year I celebrated my birthday the most happening and Happy. . .

If you do come to this restaurant for dininig… my recommendation would be the Mango Beer, Pork Bacon, Bacon Pizza and the pork knuckle and if you do not mind to get a knock in your wallet!

Restaurant Aunty Lan Having food marathon giving the memory of how me and my gila friends eat when out for our makan trip. 1 day 6 meals was truly a memorable which in our dictionary the word hungry was immediately deleted on that few days but when comes to this food outing which organize by Sid, this was our very first stop for lunch.
[update 1/3/2017] – no longer in operation]

Auntie Lan

A home cook noodle type which most of the ingredient and recipe are created by themselves to extinguish themselves from others.

Auntie Lan (2)

Honestly, judging from the menu, the foods look good and certainly one thing which caught my attention was the pricing for the food, its relative cheap.

Auntie Lan (3)

Comes with drinks ordering, I ordered ‘Home made Winter Melon Lemon Ice’ (RM3.60 -hot/RM3.90 – ice). I just love my drink.

Auntie Lan (4)

Then this colorful picture which nicely taken in the menu makes me order a pot of ‘Honey Ginseng Rose Tea’ (RM4.90 or RM8.90/2pax)- left pot. I just did not know that Ginseng and Rose tea would blend in so well that the ginseng did not overpower the taste of rose yet both added up to the right aroma yet when I was I was given a small pot of honey I doubt it would be good but it just surprise me that, the honey sweetness add in to the tea just make the whole pot of tea just to be perfect. I had 2 pot of this for myself.

Sloppychic ordered ‘Honey Mix Flower Tea’ (for relaxing) – (thorapple, rose and Jasmine) (RM5.90 or RM9.90/2pax) – this would have a stronger taste of jasmine tea yet the rose aroma blend in well, with the add on of a small pot of honey, just makes the difference taste of it.

Auntie Lan (5)

I just love my pot of tea.

Auntie Lan (6)

A simple dish like ‘Chives Fresh Prawn Fried with Egg’ (RM6.90) can turn us off away easily however it’s a very aromatic dish with the taste of egg and the chives blend in with a bit of saltiness yet the prawns was added in to give some seafood taste of sweetness in it.

Auntie Lan (7)

‘Home Made Bean Curd Skin’ (RM5.50/3pcs) is fried very crispy.

Auntie Lan (8)

‘Dry Curry Chicken Rice’ (RM8.90) just love it as how I like it to be. Not too thick curry gravy that can taste some of the santan yet its not too spicy filled with well cook potato and chicken meat is soft.

Auntie Lan (9)

If you are looking for some home cook this would be the choice ‘Home Made Hand Tear Noodles’ (RM5.90)’. Mild soup base of anchovies added in of mince pork cook with hand tear noodle (which is not too flour taste) is just nice.

Auntie Lan (10)

Then for spicy lovers, you might want to try out their ‘Southern Tomyam Laksa Noodle’ (RM14.90). Spiciness of small chili with the sour’ness of lime had just make the soup base perfect. Me and sloppy were enjoying our soup.

Auntie Lan (11)

‘Sweet Soya Sauce Village Chicken Dry Noodle’ (RM9.90) when it was serve we were like woahhhhh…..the chicken drumstick is so big and me directly went to the menu and look at the price. The price and the portion serve would just say cheap. The noodle is quite springy yet not like the wan tan mee base its something unique which is not too salty and too sweet.

Auntie Lan (12)

‘Cantonese Fish Head Meehoon’ is a bit mild in taste but I love how they fried the fish head to very crispy, of course have do not let it soak on the soup for too long. (RM8.90)

Auntie Lan (14)

When comes to desert, this is their signature item ‘Home made Chinese Ball Pumpkin Dessert’ (RM4.90)

Auntie Lan (15)

Home Made Cheese Cake – Yam
Home Made Cheese Cake – Durian

It is nice to get a chance to taste on the homecook food base as this business is run the family that some of them are as a cook with experience. With the price tag on it, sure I do not mind to go back again.
