One that really caught our attention is their fresh Mushroom Soup serve with one slice of fresh garlic toast. Rather impressive with the quality of mushroom soup that is blended with a few types of mushroom, aromatic and slightly thick to my likings. NOt to be miss if you are in here.

Delifrance (11)

Love the fragrance of Duck Confit and if I have a piece of fresh toast bread to input along would be a perfect combo for me. Always can side order to pair along. Sauce is light and mash potato is just nice.

Delifrance (12)

 Lobster Bisque @ RM 11.90. Taste is pretty salty to my liking.

Delifrance (13)

 Aglio Alio @ Rm 14.90

Delifrance (15)

Another Item that I find it pretty good is their Lasagna @ RM 13.90, cheeze been bake till its slightly hard on the top yet when you scoop it will have the cheezy pulling effect. Tomato base is slightly sour that pairs well with the mince meat and I guess its another item that worth for you to try.

Delifrance (16)

 Braised Lamb Shank is not bad as the meat is soft and gravy is just mild for me. @ RM 34.90

Delifrance (17)

If you are looking for a quick meal, here is not a bad option with Mushroom soup and bread . . .

Sometimes, hunting nice food is when you look at some pictures that you like and you go for it. So often that I hear this modern Thai dining serve pretty good food is Fa Ying by Rama V. I get to know this place when I saw my friend insta it while they are enjoying their meal there. Then not long after that see them Insta again. Then it got me very curious about the place and food and its a recommended place by them.

Since my friends birthday is around the corner, therefore I suggest this nice restaurant for birthday dinner.

fa ying (1)

Get to know that t Fa Ying means “princess” in Thai and by that you would nod your head once you know that it is connected. That is how I feel I am connected when I first saw this place. 😀

fa ying (2)

At night this whole restaurant look pretty comfy with nice lighting and set up with bar in the middle of Fa Ying by Rama V.

fa ying (3)

Sitting outside at night without wind can be like in sauna . . .

fa ying (7)

Starting to love this place when I they have happy hour buy 1 free 1 all day long. AT times before movie will drop by for a drink.

fa ying (8)

Offering in this Fa Ying by Rama V seems pretty good as I have asked my friend the list what is the must have item and she recommended a few.

fa ying (9)

This is something new to me as Watermelon salad is something light and simple to start off with, sweet and burst with watermelon juices, light mint taste and goat cheeze is added to make the taste more kick. @ RM 12

fa ying (10)

In salad range, I was asked not to miss out their signature Pamelo Salad with Prawns @ RM16, mint leaves are added along, light herbs taste in between and the pamelo is sweet sour base that pair with the ingredient very well.

fa ying (11)

Thai Fish Cake @ RM 12

fa ying (12)

It will never be complete if you step into a Thai restaurant without ordering Tom Yum, the version here is rather mild and serve along with 2 slices of toast bread. Bread is good but to pair with thai soup its a bit weird.

fa ying (13)

Pinapple Fried Rice is pretty good as fried to fragrance and pineapple taste did not overpower the rice.

fa ying (14)

All ala carte order comes with this bowl of thai fragrant rice and a bow of thai salad. Thai salad is popular among the rest as the sour base and spicy end makes it nice.

fa ying (15)

Follow by our mild spicy Curry Duck. Duck meat is not too hard yet cook to perfection that the gravy is slightly thicker and coated well on the duck meat. Love this dish.

fa ying (16)

Phad Thai is like one of my favourite dish. Will try to order if available or not to full. Thin noodles here are pretty good, and did not fried too dry, slightly  moist to my liking. Serve along with peanuts and bean sprout to stir all together along.

fa ying (17)

Prawn Speghetti

fa ying (18)

fa ying (19)

Clearly Roasted duck sandwich @ RM20++

fa ying (20)

Is the clear winner for the night as it was gone within seconds. Smack in between 2 slices of toast Ciabatta  with combination of duck, vegetables and sauces is just nice. Fa Ying by Rama V

fa ying (22)

Here is the biday girl and her cakes.

fa ying (23)

Of course my usual order placement of cakes will be from Fatboybakes.blogspot.com

fa ying (24)

Lastly, for the celebration and we were told their signature cocktail that we shall not miss is Marquessa @ RM100, uniquely served in a huge fishbowl as the mixture of the drink  filled with dragon fruit, cucumber, burnt orange peel, Absolute Blue, white wine, soda and 7-Up. Nice to drink and can at least be share with 5-6 friends.  If you are a cocktail lover, then this is one of the item you shall not miss..

For a pork free restaurant to come out with this flavorful dish, I must say I am impress. Total bill for the night came out RM650. Not bad for a recommendation.

One of the place that me and my friends had been talking for ages is to come to this very old classic for breakfast. It was on the long weekend when I was back to Penang and I got drag by a few of them to hunt for this place and finally we are here. Toh Soon Cafe operates in a small ally at Campbell Street that this place is one of a favourite hang out place during my grandparents time.

Toh Soon (1)

It was those good old times whereby you can see alot of people sitting here enjoying their coffee while reading newspaper as this place serve Hainanese breakfast, that operate by an old couple.

Toh Soon (2)

Cannot deny that this place is pretty well known now by many people, thanks to blog and Facebook had sligltly popularize this place. AS it is long weekend, definately you will see alot of tourist in this cafe.

Toh Soon (3)

Please do have patients in this cafe while waiting for your toast and coffee as it is handle by these old couple and help of friends.

Toh Soon (4)

Many people came here just for the classic breakfast, which is toast, steam bread, half boil egg with coffee.

Toh Soon (5)

Keke, you will never get to see this super classic toaster, that is modified from oil barrel burn with charcoal at the bottom as at the deepest level, there is where your bread are toast and head further up, there is where your hot water is being boiled. 2 in 1.

Toh Soon (6)

Toh Soon Singature drink, Kopi  . .. Not so bitter compare to the others, slightly robust in coffee and I always prefer mine with milk. My friend ended up having 2 glass of this.

Toh Soon (7)

I still prefer mine in hot for breakfast.

Toh Soon (8)

another signature here I would say is their steam bun. Its soft near to cotton that spread with simple kaya and butter. Definitely they are more generous in their ingredients compare to any franchise chain.

Toh Soon (9)

To eat it in more classic, I usually will dip it into my kopi as taught by my grandfather. To be even more classic, you can pour your coffee onto the base plate and drink it from there.

Toast bread range:

Toh Soon (10)

Toh Soon (11)

Toh Soon (12)

Toh Soon (13)

This is one of a unique one as the bread had slight chocolate taste and toast then spread with kaya and butter. Nice.

Toh Soon (14)

so this is how I enjoy my simple classic breakfast over the morning. Just perfect. Nothing much to shout about as only one thing that you must not miss is their steam bread. Loving it.

Parking here can be  a pain in the ass as its very limited. Therefore you can try  Lorong Kampung Malabar (next to Lebuh Campbell) where there’s a lot of parking always available and just walk into the lane only about 50m away.

Brands that have unique names will always makes us remember of it, and one of the eateries that I have come across recently is KalamaZoo Cafe which I first thought it was something like a pet shop as for the first thought without visiting it physically until being told by my friend.

[No Longer in Operation]

Kalamazoo (1)

Kalamazoo is actually the largest city in the southwest region of the U.S. state of Michigan as 4 Malaysians being stranger to the foreign land and had work part time thru their University time and by chance get to know each other by working in the same restaurant, and now they are back to open up a restaurant which is located at Aman Suria, PJ.

Kalamazoo (2)

a place that provide nice and cosy ambiance with simple photo’s hanging on the wall that reflects some places of Kalamanzo. . .

Kalamazoo (3)

Kalamazoo (4)

A bit of American style of dining which they do have like higher table and chairs.

Kalamazoo (5)

Kalamazoo is a place whereby offer some US food range infuse with a bit modernize taste to our  local taste bud.

Kalamazoo (6)

Kalamazoo (7)

Kalamazoo (8)

They have a few unique dish that worth to try and the price range in here is very reasonable. . ..

I have read a lot about this place not until recently we all came by and throng this place with Andrew’s parents as they are in town for the weekend. It is very hard to wake up early Sunday morning but haven’t been to this place, have to drag myself up. For being first time around this area, I must warn all of you that park nearby the kopitiam as I nearly got rob off my necklace gold chain around 9.30am. I was glad that they people sitting at the lorong at the mamak stall saw what was coming and I was lucky to escape unhurt. SO just be carefull around this area. Yut Kee

Yut Kee is a very old classic Hainanese kopitiam joint that served Hainanese Malaysian style Western Food that operate in the modern town area for very long time since started at 1928 and now which is taken care by the son that we can see mostly he is standing at the counter. The business is very good as you need to be there very early to get seats or waiting time can spill up to 30 minutes wait for a table. This coffee shop serving local specialties with one of their signature is Roti Babi which is not to be miss.

yut kee (1)

yut kee (2)

As the kopitiam atmosphere can still be seen with its a bit run down paint on the wall filled with marble table and wooden chairs.

yut kee (3)

Even hanging pictures on the wall reminds me of the kopitiam that I always go with my grandfather nearby his shop when I was a kid.

yut kee (4)

One of the very refreshing drinks that we really enjoy in early morning is ‘Sour Plum with Asam Drink‘. After taking a sip, we are instantly awake by its strong sourness and it is indeed refreshing.

yut kee (5)

Classic drink is Kopi, Kopi o’ Ice and Teh Ice.

yut kee (6)

The food came pretty fast as one shot they served all the food and filled up our table quite instantly.

yut kee (7)

Starting off a simple breakfast with toast bread with homemade Kaya and butter.

yut kee (8)

off course not to miss is with half boil egg to dip along with my bread.

yut kee (9)

Then Ken mention that one of the dish must order is their ‘Pork Chop’ shower with its gravy brown sauce, thin onion slices, potato and mix vegetable. The pork meat fried till brownish outside and the meat is soft, with its gravy just goes along very well, no wonder Ken mention that a must order dish.

yut kee (10)

One of their Classic signature item ‘Roti Babi’

yut kee (11)

Cut it into half you will see bread fried like along a layer of egg till a bit fluffy, stuff with pork, onion and carrot. Then you pour some Lee and Perrins sauce to bring up the taste. I guess this version and the one that I always had in Penang differ pretty much and I would say I still love Penang Style Roti Babi which is in mince meat form and fried till golden brown and served squarish.

yut kee (13)

Another crowd’s favourite is ‘Yut Kee Roasted Pork Roll’ . They do sell in slices or one whole loaf of it if I am not mistaken one whole loaf is seling for around RM140. Yet I do see many people ta pau back.

yut kee (12)

That is served pippin hot from the oven daily after 11am or 11.30am. When this roll are taken out, the smell of the wonderful crips aroma filled the whole coffee shop as like a super star just walk pass by. First time customer like me, would run out an see what is it about, as it happen the same to other new customer. Next is that we enquire what was it. . .

When this lady cut thru the pork, quite loud crack can be heard to show how crispy it is and its stuff with some herbs to make it aromatic which is only available from Friday – Sunday

yut kee (14)

 

yut kee (15)

For a try, we order a plate to try on it and it doesnt come cheap. 2 slices for RM15 that served with their homemade apple sauce. The skin were really crispy and the pork meat is juicy and tender inside, not bad for a taste if you are willing to pay for the price for just 2 piece as Andrew mention that last time he came it was only 2 slices for RM10.

Well, I guess we are starting to feel the pain of eating outside since nowdays so many things increase silently. Not bad kopitiam to hunt for breakfast and also I do noted that they do offer quite alot of fried meals that during weekdays it is very popular among the office crowd.

Our breakfast meal price ranges in between RM2-RM15.

vanilla (1)

Most of us would thought that The Vanilla place is a cafe that suitable to come here perfect for their breakfast or tea beacuse of their decoration that shows more like it. When we look thru on the menu, we were quite suprise that they served some Italian and homemade pie. Price seems very reasonable for this cafe to be in this mall.
