The Eight Avenue Bar & Restaurant is one of the latest edition to Publika family. Its just only about a few weeks old and since the first visit, it had been one of my hang out spot in the area. Find the staff are very warm and they have created a friendly warm feelings in this outlet

8th avenue (2)

Do check out their promo as they do have pretty cool promo running before 9pm including happy hour beers.

8th avenue (3)

Apparently, I believe the guy that came to our table is the owner introduce us, their cocktail is pretty good too. That I shall save it for my next visit when I am coming for happy hour.

8th avenue (4)

To those of you who love pork, their menu offering is rather interesting, that most of the descriptions sounds good.

8th avenue (6)

First order came Sticky PigRM 19.90 serves pork ribs stewed, and then grilled to perfection with toppings of caramelized apple and sticky sauce. I am not a fan of coriander, yet they cleverly infuse it with their own dressing and the taste is well pair up with sticky pig. Little sourish, and sweet end.

8th avenue (7)

Next which is one of their signature on this nicely presented plate which is Angles and Demons @ RM 14.90, smoked salmon wrapped in juicy cantaloupe and bacon wrapped prunes. This is my first time having prunes top with bacon, taste is pretty unique to me and follow with a bite of smoke salmon to give it a juicy sweet fruity end. White wine would be ideal for this pairing.

8th avenue (8)

Another dish which do look ordinary which is Pulled Pork Tacos @ RM 29.90. For a pretty serving of homemade version and price is rather steep for 4 pieces of pork tacos, but its a comfort food that have a great balance of taste. 

8th avenue (9)

When during our order, the owner insisted that we try on their house signature or his personal recommendation Cauliflower Manchurian @ RM 11.90 battered dipped plants with Manchurian sauce. Upon serving, it does smells good and it sure do look like fried chicken skin instead of cauliflower. After the first bite, it leads the plate gone within the next 60 seconds and we were in the midst of ordering another plate. Sticky, aromatic sweet sour end sure do give a good lift with beer.

8th avenue (10)

In the description in the menu, it sure do sound superb, when it was presented, the look of it is quite a let down. After slicing the pork and try it out with creamy mushroom is a bomb. The outstanding mushroom sauce give the creaminess taste that its needed with a little crunch of the greens and pork was cook to perfection.  Pork ScallopiniRM 28.90

8th avenue (11)

Usually when it comes to pasta range, I would often end up with carbonara range, as this round it was a fair share of ordering, Zucchini Pasta Doppelganger was chosen for its healthy description. @ RM 24.90. Tossed in basil pesto Portobello mushrooms and sundried tomato that makes me feel is very comfortable home cooking. Pretty strong in pesto sauce and sun dried tomato give the sourness taste of it, there are more greens than the pasta.

8th avenue (12)

8th avenue (13)

Among all the presentation, this sure impress us the most. Beautifully platted which is Sunny Salmon @ RM 24.90. It looks inviting on its mix greens on the side.

8th avenue (14)

For such a meal, dessert is a must as we look through the menu, Angela’s Passion @ RM 17.20 capture our attention. It is pretty and looks flavorful, however many elements of flavors could not be tasted. 

Its a nice bar and restaurant if you are looking for comfort food with a unique twist in it. Worth giving it a try as I will be coming back to try a few other items.

Usually I do not really head to Shah Alam as this would be my 3rd visit into Shah Alam. Mostly I will pass by and head direct to Klang for food hunting. Quite a new discovery for me yet I am quite surprise to find this new eatery location for our upcoming Malaysia festival which is Ramadan month that is smack right in the famous Glenmerie industry area. A brand that is new to us and suprise to find out that, there are many famaliliar brands under  stranger this company OWG.

Then we got a private session on how to make mooncake with the chef that prepared all the range.

Food Tree (50)

It look rather simple just by taking a roller and roll on the dough till its flat. .

Food Tree (51)

added some flour into the wood crafting design as the ball will be store inside it. .  gently press firmly onto the mold . . .

Food Tree (52)

Then bammmm, hard on the table to let the mooncake flop out from the wood. .

Food Tree (53)

Tadaa, here is the few mooncake that is out. Snowy skin version.

Food Tree (54)

Then we have Evelyn and Chou Yin on the stage to learn how to make mooncake. Much to their discovery, it is not that hard after all with correct method and pressure apply they can do it too. 😀

Food Tree (55)

Their durian pancake is heaven that made with D24 durians and evenly spread with cream and skin is just very thin. Too bad its not included in the Ramadan list. Would be available as ala carte.

Food Tree (57)

Reasonably price at RM 78++ per pax that wil have a few stalls being station outside the buffet area and not only that, you will get to enjoy some street shopping too as they are pairing it with a mini market stalls just right beside it.

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.

Manchester United Bar [Updated 20/1/2015] – Had Closed Down

After shopping the whole afternoon, we head to this Paris Van Java Mall for a stroll and was told by my friends its a must visit place. One thing I like about this mall is the F&B area located directly at the sidewalk which is so convinient and under their cool temperature, it is very ideal to sit outdoor.

IMG_5127_resize

IMG_5125_resize

The sidewalk of all the F&B outlets ranging from, restaurant to bars. . .

IMG_5130_resize

One of our interest that makes us stop by for a drink while waiting for my friend to pick us up is this Manchester United Cafe Bar. I am sure that all of the Manchester United Fans certainly would want to wish to have a bar of their favourite football club in their city, to watch your football match with all the die hard fans together . ..

IMG_5131_resize

We choose to seat on outdoor area to enjoy its cool weather.

IMG_5145_resize

Of course we would want to enjoy our beer session, San Miguel at this bar with their Happy Hour buy 1 free 1 at the price of ID30,000 if not mistaken.

IMG_5140_resize

Besides beer and Happy Hour, they do have quite a huge selection of western food available. ..

If you are craving for pork burger and you type the word in Google, guess which restaurant that pop out? CrisTang is no longer a stranger to most of the foodie, this is not an ordinary burger like our fast food chain or Ramly burger, when comes to the crave of this, I have been reading a lot of foodie blog about this place with certain selection which is must have or must try! Famous Pork Burger CrisTang

It was not until recently, I manage to drag my colleague to dine at this place which I have been wanted to go for so long~ In this restaurant, besides the famous pork burger, they have a unique dressing which is sambal petai to add onto the burger!

Christang

Cristang Restaurant is located at 8 Avenue Business Centre Seksyen 8 PJ, which for the first time I took the wrong turn and lead me to one big round to reach this place.

Christang (2)

It is a cozy restaurant that lightly dims . . .

Christang (3)

with some decorations feels like old english . . . .

Christang (4)

and the place of the restaurant is not huge, limited spaces are available as when we reach there, around 6.30pm, the place were arleady 90% book up. Only left 2 tables for us to choose from.

Advice: please make a reservation, if you plan to visit this place on the weekend~

Christang (5)

Christang (6)

A mini bar that serve variety of drinks and alcohol, especially Germen Beers.

Christang (7)

This are my siau bestie, colleague that makes them a good drinking, travelling and siau people to go along with but the day turns very miserable for one of them.

Christang (8)

This place cannot be denied that they serve pork, so piggy is everywhere with the pillow for you to sit on and to accompanied you eating too.

When we look at the menu, its full with temptations, with the description written in it, everything sounds delicious. Comes to a conclusion that, we start off with a must order item . . . . Besides serving their famous pork burger, they do have other selection such as pasta, western food and some local cuisine to choose from. Their famous pork burger with P1 – P9 to choose from.

The very last time I travel to this area was my college times, as we visit this place quite frequently for the western food and seafood as we find the seafood was relatively cheap, it was not until last month when my best friend Tatt came down for his business trip also treat us for his birthday before he went back. One thing that I know that the Subang Airport now had transform till very nice and I really wish that on that time it was operate by Airasia when they very first started(for convenience wise). BB Seafood Village

I guess the restaurant that I ate is no longer at the same place as and had move as then I still remember that it was very next to the western food (Papa and Mama Grill).

BB Seafood

BB Seafood (2)

A very classic type of seafood restaurant build with atap and set with wooden and plastic chairs.

BB Seafood (3)

The very first order came by was ‘Clear Fried Clamp’ RM16 which I find it very aromatic with the slices of ginger taste had cover the clamp very well to overpower the smell of it and fried it very nice as we enjoy it very much.

BB Seafood (5)

‘Stir Fried 3 Mix Bean with Dry Shrimp’ that had makes me thought that what a simple dish it is but that proves me wrong always as simple dish is always nice which is very hard to cook, and the vegetable are very fresh with the beans are very crispy, ladies finger is very soft and abit gammy that the small shrimp saltiness is just right. RM 15

BB Seafood (6)

I would say this is the best of all, ‘Mongolian Prawn’ which is deep fried yet the meat in it is very soft and was shower with the abit spicy, creamy and sour sauce on it. Goes very well with rice as every one is fighting for it. RM18 Its good and worth a try.

BB Seafood (7)

‘Steam Fish’ fish is rather normal as steam with soy sauce but the meat is soft that shows the sign of freshness. RM24

BB Seafood (8)

‘Salted duck Egg Crab’ I have never tried crab in salted duck egg version, turns out to be very shell licking good as I keep aiming to eat the left over small pieces of duck egg and the crab was fried in wok that make it all stick around the crab to very aromatic. RM 68

It was a great meal treated by Tatt as convenient for him to fly off after that and in that month itself he celebrated his b’day more than 5 times.
